Word names

What are some of the coolest/most interesting or unusual word names you’ve heard?

I recently read posts that mentioned the names Kindred (boy) and [name]Victory[/name] (girl) and I really like them both!

What else have you heard?

I know there is a fantastic list of word names floating around here some where.
Oasis came to mind the other day.

[name]Remember[/name] (girl), Wrestling (boy) - [name]Both[/name] of these were on the Mayflower. More in the interesting category than actually good.

[name]Tuesday[/name]. So much sweeter and spunkier than the slightly more often seen [name]Sunday[/name].

Number names - [name]Eleven[/name], Seventy, etc. On the rare occasions I see these, I think “They’re crazy, but I almost wish I was crazy enough to use them.”

I’ve also heard [name]Plum[/name] – mostly as a middle name. I kind of like it, even though I’m normally anti food names. :slight_smile:

Here’s a link to one of the former threads with interesting word names:


Thanks for the link! Lots of great suggestions in that thread!

Here’s one I just thought of that isn’t my style at all but made me smile: Calamity! :slight_smile:

I love the name [name]Sonnet[/name]. I wouldn’t name my child that but I think it’s a lovely name. People should use it more for their daughters =)


I knew a black lab named [name]Sonnet[/name] once.

I adore [name]Rogue[/name] for a girl, but would never have the guts to use it!
