Words That Could Be Names

I've been watching a lot of Bob Ross videos on Youtube, and every time he uses alizarin crimson, I think Alizarin would be an interesting name, maybe for an artist's kid (I was thinking girl, but I see no reason why it couldn't be a boy).

How about you guys? Are there any words that you haven't seen used as names that you think could be?

I thought Alla (as in the musical term "Alla turca") could be a cool name for a girl.  There are several city and town names that I think would work well, including a town in Mexico that I recently came across: Mérida.  Another word name that's on my mind, which I've heard as a surname, could be Lake, perhaps a nickname for Lakeisha.

I think a lot of musical terms could work well: Piccolo, Marimba, Baritone, Timpani, Tenor, Andante

A lot of nature/color names could work too: Auburn, Oak, Pointsettia, Forsythia, Sycamore, Freesia, Fuschia, Verbena, Wisteria

I’m thinking Cruz (Spanish for cross), Rook (the chesspiece), Sailor, Bentley, Zen and Phoenix for boys

And Estrella (Spanish for star) Glass, Briar, Eden and Sapphire for girls
