Word Names

So I have a super love for word names. I know many of you dislike word names but for those of you who do or have secret crushes on some I’d love to hear them. Especially if you haven’t seen them used yet. A few I have been loving on are [name]Winsome[/name], Forth, [name]Arbor[/name] for boys and sojourn, bobbin, reverie, and kindly for girls. :slight_smile:

My favourite word names are often thought of as virtue names.

I didn’t list flower/herb/plant names for girls because I like about 25 of ones in that category alone. It’s my single favourite category of girls’ names by a long way.

I love the virtues particularly [name]Charis[/name]

I love word names! My daughters name is [name]Happy[/name]. I’m looking for one for my son now,
Names on my list:
[name]Reef[/name](popular where I am though)
[name]Ever[/name] (can’t us cause nephews name is [name]Everett[/name] and I call him ever)
But my number one is GIven, I’m sure that is my sons name I just need to convince the husband.
Any other word names out there? I need more :slight_smile:

[name]Iris[/name], [name]Ivy[/name], [name]Poppy[/name], [name]Zinnia[/name], [name]June[/name]- wordy names that are more namey than the previous two.
[name]Mar[/name], [name]Amparo[/name], Pastora- foreign word names

[name]Pau[/name], [name]Unai[/name]- foreign word names


I [name]Love[/name] [name]Happy[/name] and Given. I live those types if word names. I don’t know what your last name is like but I love boy word names with the er ending. Like…
Braver (instead of bravery)

But I also like

Forth (I plan on using this for my next bb if it’s a boy)
[name]Winsome[/name](my second choice)
Measure (music)

Idk if they’re your style but just some suggestions. :slight_smile:

There are some great ideas here!

Here are some of my current favourites in no particular order. Some I’d actually use, others probably not.

[name]Sylvan[/name] (my DD’s name)

I’m sure there are others but that’s what’s coming to mind right now.
