Lilyquist? that is a beautiful name!! my favorite old names are [name]Mabel[/name], [name]Marjorie[/name], [name]Betty[/name], [name]Jean[/name], and [name]Gertrude[/name].

Lillyquist unusual right? I think it was actually one of the surnames very unique, definitely a different take on [name]Lily[/name] /[name]Elizabeth[/name]. Am actually starting to love the name [name]Mabel[/name] :slight_smile:

On the wing of my grandmother’s nursing home, I’ve seen Zubie and Orilillian. I’d love to know the stories behind those names.

Zubie! I’d love to know the origins of that name. I actually think I like it :slight_smile:

I love [name]Ione[/name]!
[name]Vernon[/name] is kind of growing on me. I think it would make a great mn.
[name]Saby[/name] seems like it could be a really cute nn for [name]Sabrina[/name] or [name]Sabine[/name].
[name]Clarence[/name] is a family name.
[name]Cleo[/name] - my grandma has a nice older gentlmen who is her neighbor with this name. He’s the nicest man ever.
[name]Marion[/name] [name]Taylor[/name] sounds Old Hollywood.
[name]Ralph[/name] was my husbands grandfathers name. Neither of us like it enough to use for a son. I like [name]Rafe[/name] though he does not.
[name]Walter[/name] [name]Wolfe[/name], I really like this one a lot.
[name]Odin[/name], I love this name.
[name]Vivian[/name], super pretty.

I love so many of those names! Especially [name]Odin[/name] and [name]Alfred[/name]. Yumyumyum. <3

Also, much love for [name]Ione[/name] [name]Maria[/name], [name]Edith[/name], [name]Otto[/name], [name]Milo[/name], and [name]Sheppard[/name] (though I prefer [name]Shepherd[/name])! Very charming stuff.

[name]Love[/name] [name]Ione[/name] and [name]Nell[/name]!

I would also say that Lillyquist on your list is a surname. It appears to be a variant of the Swedish surname Lillquist, meaning “little twig.” Quist (meaning “twig,” along with qvist and kvist) is a suffix found on a number of Swedish surnames.
