I don't think made up names are a terrible thing...there's whimsical Wendy from Peter Pan, the silly but fun Trilby, several names pulled out of Shakespeare's imagination.... but most people don't have the poetic inspiration of a Shakespeare, and when they try to be creative, we end up with names like Inspektor Pilot. There's a fine line there somewhere.

I like Nameberry because you run into fewer of the "I haven't heard it so I don't like it and it must be made up" types. Really, it's just ignorance/laziness. Ignore 'em and forget 'em.
I liked Merewen until someone pointed out that it sounds a bit like "marijuana"...but I do love Maiwenn and its variations. In a wonderful coincidence a few hours after I figured out that the Maewin spelling can be interpreted as "devoted friend", my husband randomly asks, "How about M-A-E-W-I-N, can we spell it that way?" Buhahahahahaha. Why yes dear. Yes indeed...Personal Favorites: Mira Cairdeas and Darrow Paine
