Heard a cool name today - not in NB database
While talking to my friend today, she mentioned her friend Zemfira (zehm-FEER-uh) and that she was of Russian descent. People call her Zemfy! How cute is that? Google revealed that Zemfira was also the name of a Russian, female-fronted band. Makes sense. I thought it was pretty spunky and cool. What are your reactions? Have you heard the name before?

Its very, very unique! I actually thought it would be African; they have such interesting names. From what I've seen Zemfira is a Russian name, but it has Latin origins and it means ""Recalcitrant" or "resisting authority or control". It would be a cool name to name a character struggling to free her people and fulfilling a prophecy. Its neat!! It would also be cool spelled as Zemphira.aurora- autumn- ashwyn- bambi- bernadette- calliope- emmalou- henriette- indigo- ione- january- lark- leela- llewellyn- lydia- marnie- molly- narnia- noelle- oralee- penelope- philomena- rain- raven- roxy- ruby- snow- tessa- thora- waverly- willow- winter- wren- zoe | abel- aesop- angus- banjo- bartholomew- bear- bruce- burkley- darwin- elliot- finn- flynn- foster- henry- indigo - knox - laszlo - lyle - navy - nemo - noah - otis - oakley - rainn - thatcher - thomas - thompson - titus - zen

That is some awesome information! I am digging the meaning. I also thought that it sounded a little like it was of African origins, too (then again I'm not overly familiar with Russian names, so I am not the best judge).
I had my friend text me the name after she mentioned it to me ( a little weird to her, I'm quite sure lol) and she originally texted the Zemphira spelling but then corrected herself. I think that spelling is gorgeous!
