    Azriel and Eiryth...

    Here are a few names that caught my eye over the last week.

    Please note, this isn't a list of potential names for a baby, just names that caught my attention. I'm not even 100% sure I like all of them!

    What do you think? Any worthy contenders for my name lists?

    BOYS: Antonius, Azriel, Laszlo, Nashua, Obadiah, Osric, Sabian, Sampson, Stelian, Thane, Theon

    GIRLS: Cambria, Eirys, Eiryth, Sabina, Sabine


    Have any names stopped you in your tracks recently?

    I love Azriel.

    I have a problem with it though.

    When I was a teenager I wrote a story (which took me years and helped me survive high school) and I had a girl character in it who needed a name. I thought I'd made something up when I called her Azriel. :/ Needless to say I was pretty dismayed when I discovered it was a real name, and a boy's name at that.

    Oh well. It's still lovely on a boy

    Ooh I love Azriel, (although I like it spelled 'Asriel' like the character in HDM)! Osric is delightful. For girls, I like Eiryth and Sabine

    I absolutely love Eirys and Eiryth, I've been thinking about both of them too recently. They're both really delicate and summery yet feel ancient and magical to me. I also met a little Sabine a few weeks ago and she made me quite like it (I'd previously had a strong dislike) - her mum called her Beanie and it was sort of adorable.

    As for your boys, I love Thane, Azriel, Stelian and Osric. I met a little Thane recently, it's such a cool name and he was cute. Sampson is a bit too surnamey for me (I like Samson a lot more but the biblical reference feels too heavy).

    Im loving Sabian, Theon (both on my list), Stelian, Lazslo, and Thane, even though it reminds me of Macbeth, I kind of like it. For girls Eirys and Eiryth intrigue me, I must do some research...
