What name(s) have you just discovered?

I’m feeling a bit uninspired by my list—even my long 150+ name lists just feel like things I’ve seen over and over again. I want to discover something new and I don’t know if anyone else feels the same! I think it would be fun to introduce more names into the Nameberry universe.

When you find a new name—whether it’s made up by hipster Instagram parents or an ancient treasure lost to time or anything in between—post it here!

I’ll start: Sølvi! (Spotted on a baby girl in a YouTube video)

Discovered a while ago but I think you might like it: Chavazelet.

I also recently got suggested [name_u]Ashby[/name_u] and I really like it!
