All my names feel uninspired lately so I've been hunting around trying to find some new ones with little luck. Does anyone want to just toss out some random names? I feel like I've seen them all and looking at behindthename they just all blur together.

Thanks in advance!

Well, you could check out my list of twenty that I finally completed for my girls. With middles, there are forty names there. Some examples?
Elina
Willow
Brietta (variation of Bridget)
Rosella
Evangaline
Joliet (variation of Juliet w/ nn Jolie. How cute is that?)

Hope that was a good starter list. Let me know which ones you like, and if you want more.

Thanks! I like Elina, more than Elena which is on my list right now. And Brietta, but anything related to Bridget is out. :(
More names are always welcome!

Its all good Lauren. I totally understand.
I feel like now that Martin doesn't like Russian names I've fallen for them. Stupid Martin. Lol. Plus without having him around to bounce them off of everything feels meh. Lord knows if I mention names around him for the next year, he'll freak out.
Mhhm.....
Riordan
Rylan
Jasper
Kyler
Benjamin
Gabriel (darn my long term good name taste! I wanna use it so bad but I can't.)

I've had to stick most of the Russian/German names I like on my GP list because they're so hard to pair with anything! :(

When I first fell in love with names they were all German or German spellings:
Markus
Niklaus
Viktor
Dietrich
Wilhelm
Kasimir

The Greek version of Lyra is Lyris. That's kinda different. I LOVE Niklaus. And Jasper. If I were having a girl right now: Daphne Rose Arden... and I'm not
usually a fan of double middles... but those 3 were made for each other!

Posted 31 July 2013 - 05:21 AM

Yeah I'm on the same page as you, Erin. I feel like most names have just become bland :( Like I know them all and they're just... meh. I wish I had interesting suggestions for ya. I like Arietta, which is a little different with a familiar feel between Ari names (Ariana, Aria, Arabella, etc) and -etta names (Elisabetta, Carlotta, etc).

Hmm. I like Marlowe, Marley, and Harlow lately. Not necessarily different. But even then I'm on the fence with these.

I love Guinevere, but I know you already have a lot of Arthurian names haha! :P

If any come to mind, I'll let you know. But my minds pretty blank as well. :(

I've compiled a list of all of the people with strange names I've met in the past couple of weeks, and another of the odd baby names my facebook friends gave their babies (most of which I have not met the baby). Some are odder than others, and some I actually think are cute. Not many though. Here they are:

Beside each name tells you the approx. age of the person.

Jonan (JOE-nan, like Jonah but an N instead of H) {in his thirties, probably}
Victory {4}
Prestin {15-16}
Garritt {11} (sister to Prestin)
Olivette {6-7}
Oswald (brother to Olivette) {2-3}
Emberlie "Ember" {18 mo}
Shepard "Shep" {3-5 mo}
Memphis {12}
Potter {23-27}
Arlo-Jude {7}
Ivan-Luke {5} (Arlo-Jude's brother)
Wetherby {8-9}

And the babies:
Quenn Marie Louise (odd spelling of Quinn)
Roe Kristopher (Roe is pron. like Row, as in row row row your boat...haha. not awful, just strange)
Jaysa (sort of like Jason, I guess)
Caroline Brooke "Roline" (only the nickname that's odd. Row-line. It's not just an around the house nickname. That's what they call her. That's what everyone calls her. All the time.)
Kamwrynn (a cre8ive way to spell Cameron...)
Davis Austin Wiley (not odd until you realize it's a girl)
JD James (JD doesn't stand for anything.)
Huxley (not super odd, but noteworthy)
