I’ve come up with two new unique girl names. The names are Veina and Nathana. I think I came up with Veina because I was thinking about the name Reigna which is beautiful as well. Nathana is derived from Nathan but has a feminine side to it. Both names are feminine yet strong willing. For the name Nathana, you can shorten it to Ana or Athana (Athena) along with Natalie.
Please consider adding these names to your site.
I love when people create new names from existing names. (See my article on Game of Thrones Names, where author George R.R. Martin does this a lot!) I really like the name Nathana. Not so sure about Veina, though, as it conjures up a vision of someone with a lot of veins! Since a vein is a part of the body, I don’t think it would work so well as a name.

I’d love to hear your advice about blending my last name, Rothschild, (ROTH-child) with my fiance’s last name, Meyer (MY-er). The readily available options are Rothsmeyer and Meychild, (although we’d probably do Rothmeyer or Mychild, to spare our kids the trouble of spelling it over and over for people). Which of those do you think makes the better last name? We are partial to Mychild for some reason, even though it sounds like “my child.” What are your thoughts?
Thanks in advance!
Interesting question. I’ve heard of couples doing this instead of hyphenating. I think it’s a good alternative, since hyphenating can get long and tedious. As for your question, I will apply my tip on first naming to say that Mychild would be the easiest to spell and pronounce.
For what it’s worth, I also kind-of like Mythchild–it sounds like a name from a fantasy novel! Rothmeyer is also perfectly acceptable, and I don’t believe your kids would have any problem with that.
Good luck and let me know what you decide!
Created name: Sameric

My husband and I are trying to decide on a middle name for our son. We were thinking of honoring both of our fathers. Samuel & Eric. I came up with Sameric. Is this a terrible made up name or is this somewhere in the past an acutal name? What do you think?
Whereas Sameric can be a totally made up name, in which you combine the names Sam and Eric, it is also a rare Arabic last name based on the name Samir/Samer.
Samir means “Companion in Evening Talk.” Kind of a cool idea, isn’t it?
I say if you both love the name, go for it!
A new, cool name

Here is a name I didn’t see in ANY of hundreds of sites was a name I thought of myself: Zandophen. To me it means “exceptional talent.” I think it’s kinda cool to have–I mean, I’d want it. Email me back and tell me what you think. gotta go to school.
That is a cool name! I’ll make sure to add it to our website as a created name. It’s great that you are so creative, you have “exceptional talent” in the naming department. Have fun at school.
The name Evanlea

My husband and I know were expecting a girl. We wanted something different, so we came up with Evanlea. We combined her both of her godparents name together.
Is Evanlea to different or unique of a name?
I like the name Evanlea. It is a perfect choice for a created name because it meets two of my name criteria: it’s easy to spell and easy to pronounce. The only possible problem I foresee is that people may confuse it with Avonlea, the fictional town from Lucy Maud Montgomery’s novel, Anne of Green Gables. Other than that, I’d say go for it.
