Names pertaining to Lighthouses?

Hey, Berries.

In hopes of expanding my (quite small) collection, I was wondering if any of you knew of any names pertaining to lighthouses, or perhaps beacons of light? I’ve been searching, but have only found a handful so far.
(I’m also open to names simply related to lighthouses somehow— no need for them to strictly match!)

Thanks so much :white_heart:

[name_m]Felix[/name_m] comes to might! And for some reason… [name_u]Edward[/name_u]? :woman_shrugging:t2: :blush:

These come to mind:
[name_u]Brighton[/name_u]
[name_m]Bodie[/name_m]
[name_m]Piers[/name_m]
[name_f]Alexandria[/name_f]

Also, I always think [name_u]Anne[/name_u] of [name_u]Green[/name_u] Gables because of the lighthouses featured in the movies on PEI, so any name from there comes to mind as well. :blush:

One more thought, [name_f]Peggy[/name_f] [name_u]Cove[/name_u] would make a cute combination, or maybe even better, a double middle name.

Faro was my first thought too. I love it :heart_eyes:

Lumen comes from the Latin for “light” or “lamp”.

Another idea could be Grace or Darling, after the heroic lighthouse keeper’s daughter.

[name_f]My[/name_f] first thought was either [name_f]Virginia[/name_f] or [name_u]Wolf[/name_u] / [name_m]Woolf[/name_m], as [name_f]Virginia[/name_f] [name_m]Woolf[/name_m] wrote a novel called “To the Lighthouse”. [name_f]Hope[/name_f] that counts!
