We've had a few in our school district. The worst was Klamidia. The funniest to me is Sir Jones and his brother Lord. They are actually really sweet kids. Also, we had Chandelier Fountain and she...

Here is what it is today, excluding my existing children's names:
My favourite is Zvi, deer, for boys, or Dov, bear.
For girls, Tzipporah, bird, and Raquel, ewe.
Agree with the above. Usually place names, such as Eight Mile Creek, or town names, Larrabee Middle, or local educators or famous people. Make some decisions about location and the name should come...
After all the bizarre variations of this lovely name -- such as Zhane, Jhane, Janessa, Jenessa, Janetta, Janina, etc ad nauseam -- I think we are all more than ready for simple and elegant names.

I consider writing to be my art, but if you are talking about the visual arts....I am mostly a fan of painting, and I have favourite museums and favourite artists and favourite paintings. As the...
Leith, Lev, Lachlan, Laurence, Lior, Lion, Leif, Lenox
Many of the students I've had from Texas have had slightly unusual names, often for Texas towns.
What about Layne or Tyler?
with working dogs one syllable names are best. my first border collie was Babe (a very typical border collie name; her owner/breeder was a sheep farmer from Scotland) and my second was May. Rupe...

In my own novel, I have killed a character who was well-liked by my readers and loved by my protagonist. Her death however is necessary as it is the chief trauma of my character's life and will be...
I know of ir-reh-na, which is Scandinavian and German. Personally I dislike the English version of the name -- with "eye" -- and prefer either the French or Scandinavian. And I love Irina.
Without Her -- Harry Nilsson
