So more like.. veh-ee? haha I'm not mad, I just want to figure it out because the name LOOKS awesome. When I'm saying it it's coming out as Zehn-oh-veh-ih... which might be correct because of my accent (apparently I have a 'Seattle' accent. Bag and beg sound the same when I say them, if that has any relevance at all) haha I feel like a little kid who doesn't know how to use a zipper...

@saracita, I LOVE behindthename. I have issues because every time I go there I just click links to other names endlessly... like wikipedia...
@ciottolo, I hadn't thought of that... phbt. Ruins a perfectly awesome name! I like it because it combines two meaningful names for me, Everett and Gerard. Oh twell...
Does anyone have any incredibly obscure names? I keep seeing the same ones over and over, and I feel like there MUST be more out there!
Yeah, I just gave you the Italian the pronunciation : ) The English, I believe, is (jack-uh-bee). Incredibly obscure names (sorry for repeats):
Okay, since you want obscure....
Holy names, batman!
Donaghy (thought of Donahugh from this one)
haha I think most of that list was a bit TOO out there for me... :)
Heehee...well, you did say obscure. Now you know at what level you start seeing the same names over again, because after that it's just tooooo out there. :-) Still, you did like some of them, so that's a score for both of us, right?
HA! Glad you like it. I am very fond of it myself, and of course it is after the great Ray. You know, I might like to re-read some of his works to scan for names. All those mid-century spacemen, yay! The only ding against Bradbury is the nn Brad. I would try to cultivate Rad as a nickname, or Bear, or Burr, or Bury. Even Burl? With me it would be Bradbury Dale or Bradbury Woodford.

@mrstoon, I'm not a fan of Brad either. Bradbury gives it a nice flow and softness. For a nn he'd probably be Addie, or Ray (heh).
I'm thinking mostly BabyNamesPedia.com, but some were direct suggestions from Berries. I made the most massive list of boy names 2 years ago for the little guy we ended up naming Peregrine. I remember @dearest, @dantea and @genevie gave me a lot of really interesting ones but there were plenty of other contributors too.
