Questionable words that would make good names

The examples that I hear the most are avarice and malaria. I personally like Megarhyssa, a genus of large ichneumon wasps.

Cafeteria, Diaspora, and Heroine

heroin or heroine?

I think Heroine looks namier, though obviously the reason it’s unusable (unlike [name_u]Hero[/name_u]) is because it’s a homophone to heroin. So… kind of both?

One of the names that gets me the most is [name_f]Milena[/name_f]. I’m a nurse and trust me, if you knew what milena was you’d be very put off!

I like Aliciana, but apparently it’s a type of moth.

Aliciana can be Megarhyssa’s sister

Tephra - I feel like I could justify it as a nerdy science/nature name, but it is dangerous

I’m thinking [name_f]Silhouette[/name_f] would be so elegant!

Lunula- still might be usable, but it’s the name of the crescent moon shaped thing on your nails

Ummidia. I read there was an Ancient [name_m]Roman[/name_m] Family by this name but it is also in the scientific name of a type of spider :frowning:
