What are your favorite meanings for names? I'm not entirely hung-up on name meanings (after all, mine means "a worker in roof tiles"), but I think meanings are nice!
If you had to sum up your preference in a statement or two, what would it be?

Here's mine:
I Like Names that Mean...Light
Alina: Polish, "Bright and Beautiful"
Annelise: Scandinavian, "Graceful Light"
Ariel: Hebrew, "Altar, Light"
Ella: Greek, "Light"
Evelyn: Irish, "Light"
Jocelyn: Latin, "Light-hearted"
Lainey: American, "Bright Light"
Leanne: English (variation of Helen), "Light"
Lucy: Latin, "Light"
Helena: Greek, "Light"
Nora: Hebrew, "Light"
Meira: Hebrew, "Sharing one's light"
Oralee: Hebrew, "My Light"
Toula: Greek, "Light of God"

Lucas: Latin, "Bringer of Light"
Luca: Italian, "Bringer of Light"


(Try not to hate me too much if I got my meanings/origins all messed up...I'm not a pro, I just googled it! I would imagine many of them are based upon variations of names and just weren't noted as such.)

I love these:

Annelise: Scandinavian, "Graceful Light"
Ariel: Hebrew, "Altar, Light"
Ella: Greek, "Light"
Evelyn: Irish, "Light"*
Lucy: Latin, "Light"*
Helena: Greek, "Light"*
Nora: Hebrew, "Light"*

Lucas: Latin, "Bringer of Light"
Luca: Italian, "Bringer of Light"

some of them are on my list of all time favourites.


To answer your question, I don't think I have a "category" as far as meaning go; but I too am a fan of names that are reach in meaning, and I generally like a lot of virtue names (that is not done on purpose, but I noticed I do)

Grace (my favorite!)
Temperance
Honor
Constance
Joy
Mercy
Hosanna
