Utah naming stats never let me down. That state truly is a naming cornacopia. The 36th most popular name for girls is Paisley and then the one that really left me scratching my head was number 69 for girls, Oakley. Would you consider this a luxery brand name in the same category as Bentley, Chanel or Armani? Does anyone know a real baby girl Oakley?
Just out of curiosity, I did a quick google search on using Cohen as a first name. There are numerous discussions on varioius baby naming sites posing the question "I'm thinkng of naming my boy Cohen". "What do you think?"
Most of the response is positve and along the lines of ooh how unusual,creative or I named my son that. To my relief, there are some posters who understand the significance of the name and try to discourage the use.
I also ran across an origin and meaning website that claimed Cohen was a form of Cody and it was of American origin. I think that proves the previous misgivings many had over the accuracies found in many printed and website sources on name meanings.
Kalila also means beloved in Arabic and Didina is beloved in French. I like the not so obvious route of naming a daughter after a David. Although Davina and the other alternatives suggested all sound refreshing to my ear.
My only association to the name Levi is in the Amish and Mennonite community of Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan. I believe this is a fairly common bestowed first name. It would be interesting to see actual stats from some of thses specific counties that have significant Amish and Mennonite communities.
