Your Top 3 Names of ____ Origin?

I thought this would be a fun way to share and discover names that we don’t necessarily hear or discuss every day!

Each poster shares their Top 3 names of whatever origin the previous poster has specified (you can also specify gender, starting letter, etc. if you like), then adds an origin of their own. You can also add a brief explanation of what you love about each name, if you like.


Example…

P1:
