    ast ending?

    I came across this in a fantasy context, and then I thought, "What real names end in -ast?" According to Nameberry's search, nothing. That really surprised me.

    So, are there any such names?

    Signy feels like it could have been more common than it is, and I mean that in a good way. Using a more ordinary middle only helps that effect. Signy Scarlett doesn't mesh for me - I think it's that...

    Most surprising: Vesper on a boy.
    Dislike: Roan Cyan. Color problem.
    Like: Shelton Graham Randall, partly because it's so far retro I wouldn't have thought of it.

    I'll assume it's Finnish. I'd say my-ee-kee, but that's not based on any knowledge of Finnish.

    Sounds like Ksenia, or at least how an English speaker would say that name. With the spelling Cassenia, I'd expect more stress on the beginning.

    I didn't think of this as a possibility; then again, I also never made the Cary/Carrie connection. The spelling is clearly distinct, and one is usually a nickname and the other isn't. In context, I...

    It's most likely a typo for Ryan.

    I suspected it might actually be an Indian name. I can't find good evidence of that, though it appears to be a Sanskrit word.

    I'd go with Naia or Reya, because in addition to not overdoing the Zs, I don't think I'd want an A and Z for identical twins.

    I only remember it as the family name of the hero in Fate/Stay Night, and the shortage of search results for anything else suggests it may not be a real Japanese name.

    I think that came off a bit wrong... I meant that I liked it almost too much, that it would feel natural to use the middle name all the time.

    I'd assume all the A's were short or "ah" - like Samara with different consonants. I get half of where you're coming from - Dana has a long A, but neither name has an "air".

    Paris has a long A (pare-iss) as English speakers around me say it.

    Incidentally, Carys pronounced as described here isn't like part of charisma, since the S in charisma is said as Z.

    Just because a name has the letters adjacent doesn't mean it's said that way. The Japanese names, for example, I don't think are quite like that. The carmaker that most English speakers say Toy-o-ta...
