    Obscure Word Names

    I love words and I've decided that I love word names too. Not for my own baby, but I'll use them in a book. In my futuristic book, I think most everyone will have a word name. Words are beautiful. They can convey a wish we have for our child (or character) like Honor, Patience, etc or something that conjures up beauty to us like Willow, Poem, Symphony.

    So I decided to compose a list of words I think would make good names (even if it's just for my story). Feel free to contribute and I'd like opinions if you have them. I'm not assigning gender because they're words, but I have my preferences.

    Bard
    Lithe
    Poet
    Sonnet
    Symphony
    Coda
    Glacier
    Fife
    Glow
    Gossamer
    Shimmer
    Mist (which is also a mythology name)
    Saga (another myth name)
    Fable
    River
    Fox
    True
    Valiant
    Sage
    Noble
    Whisper
    Solace
    Winsome -- I actually know a man named Winsome. He introduces himself like "It's Winsome like the word. You know, charming?" *big smile*
    Zenith
    Fate
    Wolf
    Darling -- sounds like Darlene
    Savvy
    Ethereal
    Whimsy -- I know one of these too. Her brothers are Sage, Noble, and Loyal. It's all too much together for me
    Bishop
    Ember
    Justice
    Atlas (myth name too)
    Bramble
    Bravery
    Bell
    Cinder -- there's a character in the Kingkiller books named Cinder

    Gale
    Glen
    Snapdragon
    Shadow

    I loved her not for the way she danced with my angels but for the way the sound of her name could silence my demons.~ Christopher Poindexter.


    Boy or girl : Wolf Elizabeth/Wolf Niklaus.

    *Wolf because is my favorite animal & it has traits that I would love any kid of mine to have
    **Elizabeth because it's my mom's favorite name.
    ***Niklaus is a similar sounding name of my father's name

    Great list!! Gossamer stood out to me; I can't picture it on a real person, but on a character in a futuristic novel it totally works!

    Someone in another thread recently mentioned Petrichor and I'm kind of digging it for a bizarre middle (not to mention the Doctor Who reference!)
    I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.

    My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.
