    Lightbulb New and Original Boy Names

    I am plum bored with all the boys names - I need some fresh, NEW, ideas - it cannot be made up and it would be a bonus if it has a literary, aquatic, or aviation reference to it. I love deeply meaningful names that have a story behind them. My boys have very original names that I have never seen discussed or searched on Nameberry. All three of them tell an interesting story. I am a reading specialist by trade so that is important to me. Is anyone up for the challenge? I have literally seen every name discussed on Nameberry so I am looking for brand spankin' new ideas.

    How much meaning one attributes to a name seems pretty subjective, and I'm sure how meaningful a name is varies from person to person, but I'll try:

    Tolhuin - I don't know if this is an established name, but it's not made-up; it's a place name, located in Tiera del Fuego, Argentina, and means "like a heart" or "heart-shaped" in the Selk'nam language
    Conleth - it's only been mentioned 6 times on these forums, and I'm pretty sure half of those times it was mentioned by me. It's a modern form of Conláed
    Isaurus - derived from the region of Isauria, also the name of a martyr
    Ambiorix - "Continental Celtic name, derived from Celtic ambio "enclosure" (or ambi "around, about" or ambitio "rich") combined with Celtic rix "king." This was the name of one of the two kings of a Gaulish tribe called the Eburones, who was famous for revolting against Julius Caesar in 54 BC (which eventually led to the extermination of the Eburones)" - listed in the Behind the Name "submitted names" section
    Accalon/Accolon - Appears in Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur
    Marsilion - or Marsile, Marsilius Marcilie, Marsille, Marsilies, Marsilun, Marsiluns - a character in The Song of Roland; name of a king who attacks Charlemagne
    Olindo - A character in the epic poem Jerusalem Delivered; also associated with Olindo Guerrini, an Italian poet. Also apparently the name of a football player
    Rivallen - A form of Rhiwallon: http://www.behindthename.com/submit/name/rhiwallon (there are, in fact, several forms listed here; I just think this one is my favorite. maybe)
    Alpheus - a Greek river-god; the modern-day Alfeios River, in the Peloponnese, is sometimes romanized as Alpheus
    Havelok - "From the Middle English story of Havelok the Dane, this first name may be Scottish or Scandinavian in origin, possibly meaning "sea battle" or "sea war."" - from the Behind the Name submitted names section
    Ibai - means "river" in Basque

    Actually, I'd recommend checking out the "submitted names" section of Behind the Name (which is basically a searchable database of user-submitted names) yourself; there are plenty of interesting, rarely mentioned names there: http://www.behindthename.com/submit/
    on my mind, for the moment

    Daria | Athena | Ramona | Winifred | Maeve | Blythe | Nadine | Dorothea | Margot | Cyra | Renata | Hypatia | Junia | Thisbe

    Flynn | Otto | Winston | Claude | Leif | Roald | Tavish | Lionel | Cormac | Tobin | Oswin | Rory | Damon | Tycho

    Mildred "Red" ☆ Obedience "Bede" ☆ Relief "Leafy" ☆ Dorothea "Doro" ☆ Penelope "Pen" ☆ Ruth "Rue" ☆ Eudoxia "Exie"
