I first heard that name in...

Hiya! I was just curious if any of you have names of which they clearly remember where they heard or saw them for the first time :slight_smile:



Does anyone else have things like this?

I have a few of these.

[name_f]Mercy[/name_f] - I read the book The Witch of Blackbird Pond when I was maybe 8 or so, and one of the characters was named [name_f]Mercy[/name_f]. Up until that point I had never heard it as a baby name before. I loved it then, still love it.

[name_u]Piper[/name_u]/[name_f]Prudence[/name_f] - I first heard these names through the television show Charmed when I was young.

[name_f]Antonia[/name_f] - I first heard this name in a book, though I don’t remember the title. It was the name of a cute, spunky character.

Daveigh/[name_f]Samara[/name_f] - First heard both of these names from The [name_m]Ring[/name_m].

There are dozens more (and some boys names too) but those are the ones that come immediately to mind.
