    Why is Declan off the table? Just curious. It doesn't mean "from Wales" or anything like that.
  4. Shapiro as a first name for a non-Jewish child?

    I must prefix this by saying that I'm not actually considering Shapiro for a child, but I would like to know people's thoughts on the matter, especially from Jewish forum members.

    I know very little about Buddhism and don't know if Buddhists would find non-Buddhists using the name Bodhi offensive. Are there any Buddhist members who could enlighten us?

    Thanks for your replies, everyone.

    I think most names are open to people regardless of background. However I would avoid names that are particularly sacred to religions I don't belong to (e.g....

    People seem to prefer Amaya, but I've always liked the look of Amaia more. I also prefer Maia to Maya.

    I've only heard Maya (as in the Maya people) pronounced MY-a. I guess because the name was...

    Ostara

    What are your thoughts on Ostara? It's the Old High German name for Easter, and the name some modern-day Pagans/Wiccans use for the holiday. I've also heard of it being used as a girls' name.

    goodkarmavt - Liliana and Juliana (I prefer this spelling) are very pretty. I also love the Italian spelling Giuliana, but it's liable to be mispronounced where I live.

    I can understand how someone would view Caliana as a combination of Calista or Calla with the trendy -iana suffix. I guess most berries don't like names that have a made-up...

    Caliana

    What are your thoughts on this name? Does it seem made-up or trendy?
