    Good call. Raiden is another example, though I believe a significant portion of the Raidens and Aydins are clever spellings. I love it pronounced eye-den.

    I love the sound of Aidan. I will never understand all the variations. -ayden names have become this generation's Jennifer. For example, Aydin, at #705. The kid doesn't have a unique name. They have...

    I started going by the short form of my name, in part, for the same reason. I couldn't stand how people pronounced the vowel sometimes. Think along the lines of Ariel- pronounced like the Little...

    Ruben is definitely male. It's not a common name, so most people would not stop to think Ruben might be a girl. Rue on its own sounds unisex. Ruby or Ruth are great names for a girl if you want to...

    For years, I dreamed of one day having a daughter named Zinnia, after reading Chasing Redbird. Having an easy-to-butcher surname, both before and after marriage, put a major damper on that one.
