    I doubt you'll find anything that means 'servant'. If this guy is an important character then he should be more than his name: why does the meaning of his name have to describe what he does for a...

    I'd pick Amelia.

    Also, this is a forum, not a chat room, it's preferable if you don't use text speak when communicating :)

    So, apparently the actual Welsh pronunciation would be to rhyme with Megan.

    Tegan = 'TEG-an'

    ...and the 'teg' part means 'pretty/beautiful'. For 'beautiful doe' you'd need Tegyd.

    I really dislike this. For me it's just a surname and the 'oan' part sounds really moany to me. I don't see anything attractive in it at all.

    I've always seen the boys name as Noel (without the umlaut and therefore pronounced 'nole') and the girls name as Noelle, pronounced as if it has the umlaut but not spelt with it.

    I see 'noël' as...

    There was a Billie Jean at my school too actually, lol. We also had a Rio (after the Duran Duran song), her last name was Grant! And there was a Tom Jones, like the singer.

    I only like it as a name for a fantasy character, as in real life I don't approve of surnames as first names ;)

    If it's a Welsh word then with that spelling it should be:

    'av-a-hcl-en' (short a like cat)

    If you can't do the 'hcl' noise then saying 'av-alen' would be a way of Anglicising it.

    I'm not...

    I went for Tilden. I definitely don't like Toulouse or Taliesin (the two 's' sounds in both 'grace tal-yes-in' and 'sam tal-yes-in' sound odd to me).

    To me, your name is your name. It doesn't make sense to me that someone 'wouldn't fit/suit/look like' their own name, no matter how young they were.
