    Lovejoy, Hopestill, Makepeace and friends!

    I've recently come across a fair selection of new names in this category (I'm not sure what to call that category, but still)
    Fairlight, Meriwether, Makepeace, Loveday, even Lightfoot are on my list, but I have a sudden desire to dig up some more to add to them.
    Can you wonderful nameberries help a girl out here?
    I think they make wonderfully unexpected middle names and I want as many of them as I can without just creating them off the top of my head. I realise a lot of these are surnames, but my knowledge of English surnames is poor, and I have never met a single person with any such name in my life so I have no idea where to begin!

    Also, if you happen to have any fun and unusual word/virtue/animal/plant names up your sleeve, I would love to hear those as well, and unusual surnames are most welcome as well, but they're somehow a bit easier to come by, although I do face challenges daily trying to figure out why Hennessy isn't the best choice and such (and that one was a bummer)...

    Thank you so much for any help and otherworldy suggestions. Any and all help is much appreciated! <3

    I don't have anything to contribute, just wanted to say that this a great thread and I can't wait to see what people say!

    In my family tree there is the surname Bliss, which I think is fantastic. One person in that family was named Experience. Experience Bliss!

    Lovejoy is a surname several generations back in my family, along with Estelle, Benton and Walker. Hoping to use one of these as a middle name someday!
