I love all of these names, particularly [name_f]Inaya[/name_f], [name_u]Dessie[/name_u], [name_f]Keziah[/name_f], [name_f]Sophronia[/name_f], [name_f]Celandine[/name_f], [name_f]Delora[/name_f], [name_m]Balthazar[/name_m], [name_m]Malachite[/name_m], and [name_f]Mairead[/name_f].

I have met a [name_f]Mairead[/name_f], [name_f]Leandra[/name_f], and [name_m]Nevan[/name_m].

I don’t think any should stay buried! :heartpulse:

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

I know a [name_f]Deenie[/name_f]! A little [name_u]Aberdeen[/name_u]. She generally goes by [name_u]Abbie[/name_u] at school, and some people in her life call her [name_u]Aberdeen[/name_u]. But her parents mostly call her [name_f]Deenie[/name_f].

I think that [name_u]Keats[/name_u] is really cool, and have never met one but use this in my name repertoire occasionally.

I love so many of these :yellow_heart: I’ve met a horse [name_f]Tamar[/name_f] (prn. tah-mar) and people named [name_f]Ebba[/name_f], [name_f]Saya[/name_f] (prn. zahr-yuh) and [name_u]Merle[/name_u].

[name_f]Elizabella[/name_f] - This is actually on my favorites list as well. I’ve heard it’s too frilly but I don’t think it is any more frilly than [name_f]Mirabella[/name_f] or [name_f]Arabella[/name_f]. Certainly not more frilly than [name_f]Seraphina[/name_f].
Maylie: I do know a little girl named Maylie and they spell it this way. I think it is a cute name and fits right in with the Hayleys and Kaylees and Baileys etc.
[name_f]Kalena[/name_f]: I know a girl named Kaylena but this is pretty too.
[name_f]Sula[/name_f]: Know a teenager named Suli and again this is similar and pretty as well.
[name_f]Keziah[/name_f]: Never met a [name_f]Keziah[/name_f] but I would love to, very unique name with a lovely sound.
Saia: I know a boy who goes by Saia, I can’t remember his given name but anyway - I like the sound of this.
[name_u]Camber[/name_u]: This is spunky and cute.
[name_m]Cormac[/name_m]: I’ve been crushing on [name_m]Cormac[/name_m] for awhile now, it’s strong and fun at the same time.
[name_u]Ashby[/name_u]: I think this would be a cute name for a girl.
The names I think should stay in the antique trunk for a bit longer or remained buried forever:
Redemption: I would not love carrying this name around.
[name_u]Glow[/name_u]: This is a great name for a brand of makeup.
Fliss: Too much like floss.
[name_f]Deenie[/name_f]: Too many joke options.
[name_u]Merle[/name_u]: [name_f]My[/name_f] grandfather’s name is [name_u]Merle[/name_u] and he hated it, he would never use it when he signed his signature, just used the letter M. So, for this reason, I’ll pass on [name_u]Merle[/name_u].
[name_f]Nazli[/name_f]: Take out the l and you are left with a horrible name.
[name_u]Sunset[/name_u]: This is too much for me, I would just use [name_u]Sunnie[/name_u] if I had to.
[name_m]Malachite[/name_m]: Reminds me of a stalagmite
Flare: Too much flair on an outfit is one thing but not on a human.

Thank you everyone!

Ah, that’s so cool that you’ve met a Keats! And a Lurlene!!

Yay, a rl Leandra and a Nevan!!!

Aberdeen nn Deenie :open_mouth: I’ve never been sure on Aberdeen but now I’m kind of seeing the appeal!

Ooh, that’s cool - a horse called Tamar!! I’m not 100% sure on how the Sy-uh I met spelled her name, so I’m just guessing here :grin:

An Algernon :open_mouth: that’s so cool!!

In case anyone's interested, these are the ones I've met/encountered irl:

Merle (f)

Kind of surprised by how many of these were influenced by people I’ve met :grin:


I love this list!!

[name_f]My[/name_f] favorites are [name_m]Brynmor[/name_m], [name_f]Leandra[/name_f], [name_u]Clancy[/name_u], [name_u]Keats[/name_u], [name_u]Mariner[/name_u], [name_f]Edmee[/name_f], [name_f]Arianell[/name_f], and [name_m]Algernon[/name_m] !!

Out of this list, I’ve met an [name_f]Edmee[/name_f], an [name_f]Ailish[/name_f], and a [name_f]Mairead[/name_f] !

Personally, I’m not the biggest fan of [name_f]Elizabella[/name_f], it’s just a little little tough for me to say :wink:

[name_m]Omri[/name_m] is one of my very favorite names!

I also love [name_u]Dessie[/name_u], [name_f]Deenie[/name_f], [name_u]Clancy[/name_u], [name_f]Keziah[/name_f], [name_f]Ebba[/name_f], [name_u]Mariner[/name_u], [name_u]Merle[/name_u], Lully, [name_f]Zazie[/name_f], [name_m]Icarus[/name_m] (!!! [name_f]My[/name_f] ultimate GP name), [name_m]Tarquin[/name_m] (I have a DnD character with this name), [name_f]Stellaria[/name_f], [name_u]Pasha[/name_u], [name_f]Lurleen[/name_f], and [name_f]Avis[/name_f].

Ironically, despite using it, I would pick [name_m]Tarquin[/name_m] if I had to pick one to be buried. I like the sound, but [name_m]King[/name_m] [name_m]Tarquin[/name_m] of [name_u]Rome[/name_u] was despised lol. So much so, that he was the last king, and after him, if Romans even suspected you of THINKING you wanted to be king, you were a goner. [name_f]My[/name_f] ranger [name_m]Tarquin[/name_m] was therefore

I found a lot of new ones I really like! One I am very familiar with and love that I know someone with the name is [name_m]Omri[/name_m]. I also know a [name_m]Nestor[/name_m] in the fencing community :person_fencing:

Some I added to my list I was unfamiliar with before:

[name_f]Nadira[/name_f]: love N names a good alternative to [name_f]Nadia[/name_f]

[name_m]Thaniel[/name_m]: a great way to shorten [name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] other than [name_m]Nathan[/name_m] or [name_m]Nate[/name_m]

[name_m]Caradoc[/name_m]: so striking and unique! I think people that love [name_m]Caspian[/name_m] or [name_m]Cedric[/name_m] would also appreciate this name and I love the meaning.

[name_m]Pavel[/name_m] (Pasha): I have just come to adore Russian names and this one I was unfamiliar with.

I’ve encountered the following irl (some spelled a little differently): [name_f]Leandra[/name_f], [name_f]Nadirah[/name_f], [name_m]Nestor[/name_m], [name_f]Kezia[/name_f], [name_m]Cadmon[/name_m], [name_f]Sula[/name_f], [name_f]Tierra[/name_f] (very common where I live), [name_f]Tamar[/name_f], [name_f]Aya[/name_f], [name_m]Linton[/name_m], [name_f]Taya[/name_f], [name_f]Saya[/name_f] (pronounced like the word say), R3dimption (yes, spelled that way)

I would say Lurleen/Lurlene doesn’t really catch my eye
