Comment for a name! (Eileithyia)

Many of you probably know that I have a massive master list of names, nearing 20,000. I like every single name on this list, and I’m pretty proud of it. Before I share all of it, I thought it would be fun if we did the name equivalent of “comment for a song”.

I will give you a boy name, and a girl name. I have about 12,000 girl names and 8,000 boy names, so your lucky name will be completely random. I will give you the origin and meaning of the name too.

For additional fun, reply and tell me what you think of the name.

[name_m]Feel[/name_m] free to request multiple names!

Sorry in advance if not all meanings are 100% correct. This is entirely a passion project and I can’t guarantee the meanings are entirely authentic. Please feel free to research them yourselves if you wish!! :slight_smile:

Thank you! I love [name_f]Alizah[/name_f], [name_m]Egan[/name_m], and [name_f]Abeni[/name_f]! And they have the sweetest meanings :yellow_heart:

Aw thank you!

Frida is so adorable and I actually have her on my list as the combo [name_f]Frida[/name_f] [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]!
I’d never heard of [name_f]Jancey[/name_f] but I actually love it! It combines [name_f]Nancy[/name_f] and the J names that run in my family so it could also make a cool honor.
I never really thought of [name_u]Lee[/name_u] on a girl but it’s actually so cute and I love the meaning!

Thaddeus is such a cool name and I like [name_m]Tad[/name_m] as a nickname.
[name_u]Sutton[/name_u] is really cool too!
[name_m]Emmanuel[/name_m] is probably my favorite of the boys! It’s so stunning and peaceful sounding. Also [name_m]Manny[/name_m] would be such a cute nickname for a little boy :pleading_face:

Thank you so much! I love [name_f]Hannele[/name_f], [name_u]Kirby[/name_u], and Zareb! I do associate [name_u]Kirby[/name_u] with the animated character, though. [name_f]Hannele[/name_f] is also on my list! :slight_smile:

@eileithyia Your best friend has one of my favorite name crushes! I’ve never been brave enough to add [name_f]Chantelle[/name_f] to my list but this is probably a sign, it’s beautiful :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: [name_m]Henrik[/name_m] also makes my heart melt, I can see myself using these 2 in particular.

Zayn & [name_f]Aanya[/name_f] are intriguing, I’ve considered these gems before too actually! But the meaning of [name_m]Zayn[/name_m] is so lovely, how can I resit adding these as well? Thank you for these! :star_struck:

@eileithyia These are great! I’ve hooked into a couple already: [name_u]Clare[/name_u], [name_f]Dahlia[/name_f], [name_m]Daire[/name_m], Zealand & [name_u]Blaise[/name_u]. [name_f]Zsoka[/name_f] and Khachig have got my interest. Also, scrolling through, Arpi & Ivaylo (katkabet’s), Airen (the_common_fool’s - the 1st for others that caught my attention), and Zareb (w8src’s) caught my eye.

Two of the names have already given me an idea that will hopefully work well. I’ll pm you when I figure out how to work it in.
