Violet Rain makes me think only of the song by the artist formerly known as Prince – Purple Rain. I’m wondering whether that was deliberate or not?
I thought of that song too. 🙂
Arthur Eugene, Constance Audrey, and Julian Quinn are my favorites from this list. Raiden Storm sounds violent.
An interesting selection!
I came across a Dresden China in the 19th Century British Births, Marriages and Deaths once. I’m not sure I’d use it or a variant now, personally, since the city was fire-bombed virtually out of existence in WW2.
Is Quaid Mycle a creative spelling of Cade Michael, do we think?
I understand the sentiment behind Tempora — but it does unfortunately make me think of tempura.
Maybe it’s just the fact we’ve had a few downpours today, but my eye first read Violet Rain as Violent Rain!
I do rather like Oakley Thor and Jezabel. But I think my picks from this list are Constance Audrey and Arthur Eugene — they have a rather charming vintage ring to them.
Thanks for sharing that about Dresden. I love hearing interesting tidbits about names.
I think Mycle is Michael, but I would say Quaid like Dennis Quaid, not Cade.
Ooh, violent rain would not be good. 🙂
is Oakley becoming trendy? I do rather love it.
Julian Quinn is a really good combo.
Arthur Eugene on the other hand to me reads old man.
I don’t think Oakley is trendy. I love it too.
Jake Buster – such a total “boy name”! River Bearett makes me think of a bear in a river … not that that’s a bad thing.
Baynaii is a name I have never heard before; I wonder where it’s from?
I googled Baynaii and I didn’t find anything. A few people with the last name Baynai did come up so maybe that’s the inspiration.
