I found a new name!
I recently discovered a girl's name that I hadn't ever heard of before.
Amaranta. It's the Spanish version of the Greek Amarantha - derived from Aramantos.
I then read that another version is Amaranthe. Like Xanthe - A-maran-the.
I've fallen in love with it! I have a soft spot for Greek names (Xanthe, Ismene, Athena, Gaia, Maia etc) but this is far from my style.
It's something that I would usually classify as a guilty pleasure name, but I can see this being used, with the nickname Ama.
I can't quite pinpoint what it is about this name that I love so much, but there's just something. What do you think about it?
The only issue I've been able to find is that there's a Swedish/Danish band called Amaranthe. Their music "fuses melodic death metal with pop melodies". Oops.○ chelsea ○ eighteen ○ australia ○

It reminded me of One Hundred Years of Soltitude, it was used there a few times.Olympia

I first came across it in One Hundred Years of Solitude. Very pretty name!
