What names have we missed?

Oh yeah, I noticed [name_f]Lenya[/name_f] only showed up as a girls name too.

On the flip side, I only see [name_m]Vanya[/name_m] listed as a boys name but since Umbrella Academy came out, I’m anticipating we may see more girls named [name_m]Vanya[/name_m]

Negan - The only place I’ve heard it is The Walking Dead, but I guess it’s still a name lol - Source

Didn’t request it, but wanted to say I was sooo excited to see [name_u]Léo[/name_u] was added, thanks to whoever did that!:blush:

Thanks for adding [name_m]Saxo[/name_m]! I want to suggest adding Rubeus :slightly_smiling_face:

Yes! Rubeus! That’s the name of my dog!

My oldest son came up with the name CYPHER many years ago. (“Cipher” is the Am. spelling.) He loved it so much that he wouldn’t use it for any of his video game characters, pets, etc. He was saving it for something “really special”. In [name_u]October[/name_u] this 35-year-old man became a father for the first time and got to name his son Cypher [name_u]Lennox[/name_u]. (The mom is going with [name_u]Lennox[/name_u] Cypher, but that is awkward.) In some circles the name means “zero” or “of no worth,” it can also be a verb meaning to do arithmetic or to put text into code. We have renamed our 8 acres of forest Cypher [name_m]Woods[/name_m], where there will be mysterious paths and hidden surprises. :smiley:

Congratulations on your new grandson! :confetti_ball: Cypher is a cool name; it’s actually given to a dozen or so boys per year in the US so it definitely a good candidate for addition to our database.

Could you add Anjalina? (it’s a mix of [name_f]Angelina[/name_f] and [name_f]Anya[/name_f], with the J being pronounced the Scandinavian way, so like Anyalina, only not.)

Hyacintha - feminine form of hyacinthus (Latin), as far as I know. Very pretty and elegant!

Rosantha - a lovely floral name that comes from the Latin name for “heather.”

Calluna - an intriguing choice that is the Latin name for another variety of heather.

@FuzzBall Speaking of floral names, could the name Periwinkle be added to the data base? It’s a flower and color name :grin:
