    Your Favorite Ancient Name (Any Culture)

    I've been on a huge ancient kick for boys for a while now, and I'm curious. What's your favorite ancient name? Not just Greek and Roman, any ancient culture.


    I could have sworn that I saw something like this the other day, but I can't find it anywhere. Sorry if it's been done recently!

    Edit: Or a list, it doesn't have to be just one. I know that would be almost impossible for some of you.
