I like architecture too - I guess a lot of the greats have already been mentioned, but does your sister have a favorite? I guess I feel that if I were in a vocation with inspiring figures, I would already have someone in mind for a namesake. [name]Gustave[/name] Eiffel for me.
Also - [name]Archie[/name] would be a little bit of a pun. [name]Michelangelo[/name] a [name]Leonardo[/name] DaVinci are also architects’ names. I.M. [name]Pei[/name] might not be her favorite - but I.M. can stand for whatever she likes.
Other names that might mean builder or dwelling. Supersearch isn’t helping me out on this one, but maybe some others have names like that they can list.
Architecture reminds me of types of edifice - bridges, arches, and towers, as well as cabins, estates, cathedrals, everything in between; features of buildings like domes, columns and pediments and cantilevers. Not really names but inspiration for names about architecture. Other things I think of are animals who also build dwellings of some sophisticated design for their species - bees, birds, and beavers. Other animals do as well, but these really open up that category for me.
I think also of the earliest forms, the ancient beginnings. The Great Pyramids, Stonehenge, the Parthenon. Styles of Architecture like Rococo! That might be a little fancy, maybe [name]Rocco[/name] instead.
Really, I get a million, zillion ideas from this - not just great architects, not just (mostly) from the last century. Where does she look for inspiration - how did she decide to become an architect? I think she would have the inside track on a namesake or reference to her inspirations.
