I fell madly in love with the name Trevelyn a couple years ago but I cannot find any information on it. Do you know anything about this name?
Also, I want to name my first son this very badly but my mother is convinced he will be teased mercilessly because it sounds too feminine. Do you agree with this?
I am currently 4 months pregnant with my first child. My fiance and I do not know the gender yet and will not know for about another 6 weeks. We have already decided on a boy's name but are having trouble choosing a name for a girl. If we have a girl, we plan on giving her the middle name Margaret in honor of my mother who passed away last year. I have always loved the name Charlotte and want to use that as the first name. However, my fiance thinks Charlotte Margaret does not go well together and is too long. We both like the name Ava, and while that seems to sound better with Margaret, I am having trouble getting away from the name Charlotte. Any advice?
I read the book The Senators Wife, in which the main character gives birth to a boy she names Asa. When I listened to the book on tape, the reader pronounced the name like Aye-Suh, similar to Elsa, but with an A. Not like Ass-uh, or Aw-suh. My husband and I would like to use this name for a boy, but we would like to know if we should spell it Asa (which I prefer) or Aesa (which may cause less pronunciation confusion). Also if you know the origin of the name. Thanks!
I love the name Junia, but was unable to find out much about it; meaning? Origin? I know it’s a Bible name, though. Can you help me out? Thanks!
I saw the movie Les Misérables recently, and I was really intrigued by the name Enjolras, as I have never heard it before. I looked it up, but I noticed the site doesn't have it. I'm assuming it's a French name, but what is the meaning of it? Also, how do you pronounce it?
For as long as I can remember my husband has been obsessed with the name Sebastian. I know it’s a popular name but I just cannot stand it! I thought of a creative way that we could both be happy, and that is if we name our boy with the spelling Sebashton and call him by the nick name Ashton, which is one of my top favorite names. Do you think this is too much of a stretch? I have told some people of this idea and they look at me blankly like it is very strange.
I love the name Malaysia and would love to name my daughter that. I always though of it as a country but then I heard it being used by my stripper's best friend who is a stripper as well, and loved the sound of it as a first name.
However I couldn't find any meanings for that name. Do you know the meaning and what do you think of it as a first name?
BTW, i have no intention of telling anyone where I got the idea from.
