We’ve all met a [name]Georgia[/name], [name]India[/name], [name]Virginia[/name], [name]Adelaide[/name] or [name]Carolina[/name], and at least heard of a [name]Kingston[/name], [name]Paris[/name] or [name]London[/name] … but what about more unusual place names?
Some are almost (or completely) unheard of, and very beautiful … and so I decided to start this thread. I will update it with a new place name every couple of days, and feel free to discuss your own favourites or request a particular type of name (for example, perhaps you are looking for a boys’ name that will remind you of your time in [name]India[/name]).
So here is the first name :
Athesis - a possible alternative to the popular [name]Alexis[/name]? I would suggest this as a girls’ name, and think it has soft spunk, despite sounding a little like a dissertation!
Athesis is the Latin name, commonly used until only a couple of centures ago, of the Adige river, which winds around the cities of [name]Verona[/name] and Mantua in [name]Italy[/name]; the setting for [name]Shakespeare[/name]'s [name]Romeo[/name] and [name]Juliet[/name]. I like to think that this gives it a romantic quality!
And while we’re on the subject :
[name]Verona[/name] - a ladylike girls’ name, lent a romantic feel by its connection to the most famous lovers of all time, and also an elegant air by its Italian origins.
What do you think?
