    My favorite word name for a boy is Ransom (I also like that it has history as a surname.) I also like Deliverance, Temple, and Priestly, off the top of my head.

    One of my favorite word name ideas is to use the names of herbs, spices or grains. There are so many lovely-sounding ones!--Rosemary, Thyme, Sage (like the song!), Tarragon, Chervil, Caraway, Rye, Basil, Bay, Cilantro, Marjoram, Juniper, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Clove, Coriander, Ginger, Pepper, Saffron...

    I also have a list of word name ideas which I do not now remember where I found. I copied them out by hand, choosing the ones I liked best, and it is now a list I love to read for fun. Some of them really would make cool names. Here goes (it's long):

    Wow, lots of good ones already (and by "good" I mean words that never occurred to me as names but could easily fit in to the word name trend). Someone mentioned Cirrus in another thread, and I thought that was pretty good.

    Others:
    Army
    City
    Color (I see lots of color names, but never "color" itself)
    Dark
    Dew
    Early
    Effort
    Glazba (Croatian word for music)
    Hall
    Image (hmm...)
    Lately
    Lunes (Monday in Spanish)
    Matter
    Music
    Novella
    Peace
    Theory
    Very
    Wish
    Zene (Hungarian word for music)
