Today at the park, there was a girl named Candle. At first, I thought maybe I must have misheard Kendall, but Dad repeated it several times. Definitely Candle. That’s a new one. Have you heard/met anyone lately with an unusual name?
Other interesting word names I’ve seen in birth announcements.
Echo McKay (girl)
Light Alexander: Better than Heavy.
Saint Joshua: How long before they realize that this baby isn’t a saint?
Sincere Jacob: I like a lot of word names, but I’m not a fan of these descriptive names like Shy & Sincere. It kind of reminds me of Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Hi, I’m Patience. This is Precious. Meet Fabulous. That’s Victorious. Charisma couldn’t make it. Unique is standing over there. And Awesome just walked in. See?! Just like the dwarfs. 🙂
Other interesting finds:
Cashlie Mae: Because Cash is a boy’s name.
Dashlynn Joann: Ditto, but replace Cash with Dash.
Emanon Quest: I’m on a quest for a name. *NOTE: Emanon spells no name backwards.
Enjoli Madison: Enjoli is also a fragrance by Revlon.
James Sterling & Ledger Warren: I’m one of the few name nerds, who don’t think siblings names have to match perfectly because I think parents should just use their favorite names, but twin boys James and Ledger. That’s quite a leap. I wonder if mom choose one and dad chose the other.
Schillaci A’mari: (boy) I’ll admit I tried to figure out if this was a mangled spelling for something. I couldn’t come up with anything so I googled. Turns out its an Italian last name made famous by Italian soccor player Salvatore Schillaci “Toto”. It’s also the last name of a fugitive, who was once on the FBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted List, but let’s assume he’s named after the footballer.
Starmoni Niesee: Star plus Harmony. Star and Ceremony. I have no idea.
Stormy Weather: (boy) haha. So clever. Note sarcasm here.
