Names inspired by words in other languages?
I'm learning French/teaching myself French, so I admit I'm probably more interested in this than usual, and I wouldn't use them (I'm all too familiar with the feelings of the French on using word names like Soleil and Jolie and Miette!), but I do think it's a fun sort of GP, and I'm wondering if any of you have some favorites that fit into this category that might be a bit more off the beaten path.
Recently in my French lessons, I came across the verb améliorer (which, admittedly, doesn't have the prettiest meaning "to improve", but it has such a pretty sound and image!), one form of which is améliore, which I think would be such a beautiful name! (ah-may-lee-ohr) It seems sort of a smoosh of Amélie and Eliora. Améliore. Améliore. Améliore.
I also love Fiala, the Czech word for "violet".
Any of you have any other lovelies?
