Are invented names automatically terrible?
Weren't all names "made up" at some point in time using words, parts of words and sounds?
I'm not really talking about Youneek spellings like Emyrsynn or Maddysenn or Airwrecka, etc or the stuff of email forwards (Ladasha or Abcde) or even Mash-up names like Gracelyn or Olivianna.
Is it possible to make up a name that doesn't sound trashy or like it came out of a fantasy novel?
My husband and I are seriously considering a few names that are invented .
Avaset Katherine (pronounced "Have a set" minus the H)
Eveliet Katherine (pronounced "ev-ah-leet")

Shakespeare might have come up with some good ones...it's more difficult for the rest of us. Sorry, but I'm not a fan of your creations, though you do seem to have a flair...maybe keep trying, but be careful!

Zuri is actually a real name. Avaset looks like a misspelling of Avocet, which is a type of bird. I initially pronounced Eveliet like Eh-veh-lee-ETT, like Juliet. Keep trying.
What's wrong with a name that has an origin, a history, and is real? The first names weren't just pulled out of thin air. They were developed from an actual language. Perhaps Airlea, Alethea, Ariadne or Seraphina would strike your fancy.~lucy reine~~ celestine eira ~ mary simona ~ elizabeth echo "ellie" ~ eleanor maeve "lena" ~ vivienne isla ~ celia matilda "cici" ~ catherine aiko "rin" ~ elsa verity ~~ jasper red ~ evander lachlan 'evan'~ kai nicholas ~ ezra link ~ avery thomas ~ michael satoshi "mischa" ~ finn jeremias ~ ezekiel hayden ~ alexander rowan "sacha" ~
