I'm not sure the Greek mythology names really belong. They have a more familiar feel, less new, and probably appeal to different parents. (I grew up with an Athena, an Ariadne, an Apollo, etc.)


I'm also unsure about Laking. LaKing yes , but Laking I'd pronounce "lake-ing," which has a different feeling...

A great one from a Phryne Fisher book (well, a few actually)- Nerine. It has all the hallmarks of a "name" name, but is a genus of flowering shrubs that doesn't get used much. Lovely, I think.

Also in those books you'll read the names of some Australian flowers used on women, which I think is a great idea for people who want unusual floral names- look for foreign or exotic flowers!

Whereas here in SoCal it's likely to be pronounced "loo-EEss", like Luis...

Also, there is simply no way to name your kid Dexter without people thinking you named him after a fictional serial killer right now (unless he's a Jr or something.)

I actually really identify with my brother's name, Michael. I think that would be a good name for me if I was a boy. (I didn't actually have a boy name. My mom had amniocentesis and an ultrasound before they were common, being an older mom with me, and had not picked out names when she found out I was a girl. My brother's girl name was Sarah.)

In Response to Name Spotlight: Levi

Interestingly, I know many Jewish people with the LAST name Levi, but not one with the FIRST name Levi!
