    Re: What names have we missed?

    As far as I know, Rei is a full name. There are other names which I assume are just elaborations (Reiko, which has the feminine -ko ending?)

    Has anyone apart from Alan Moore used Campion as a first name? It seems to be an established last name.

    Nelani

    All I know is it's a girls name :/ I know a girl with this name, but I cannot find information on it. I believe it is Sri Lankan...

    I saw a girl on local TV today named Trillium. I had never heard of it as a name before but it is a type of flower.

    Not sure if it's connected, but Nalani is a Hawaiian girls' name. I've seen it said to mean 'calm as the heavens' or just 'the heavens' (unsurprising - it seems that Hawaiian and Native American name meanings often get embellished/romanticised by baby name books and sites).

    Auburn

    Re: What names have we missed?

    I have a Persian connection. They have tons of names that fall into our "extreme exotics" category. Beyond the well-assimilated jasper, cyrus, esther, leila, and jasmine, some of my favorites are:
    girls:
    Azadeh- free from material attachments
    Elaheh- goddess
    Pari- fairy (you already have this one, but I found out they pronounce the r in a way that the name sounds like patty or paddy)
    Azita, Mandana- names of princesses
    Darya- sea
    Kimiya- alchemy
    Laleh- tulip
    Mahla, mahsa, mahta- moon-like
    Maliheh- beautiful
    Nayyer- radiant
    Niloufar- lotus or water lily
    Sadaf- sea shell
    Roya- dream, vision
    Sepideh- dawn
    Setareh- star
    Shadan- joyful
    Shayda- deeply in love
    Shahla- dark-eyed
    Sholeh- flame (haunting sound. Ditto with Elaheh)
    Shayan, shayani- worthy, deserving
    Zahra- boldness
    Zarrin or Zareen- golden one
    Boys:
    Arsalan- lion (too bad it starts with arse)
    Farzan- wise
    Javad- liberal
    Kamran- successful
    Kayvan- universe
    Omid- hope
    Payam- message
    Sanjar- prince
    Vafa- loyal
    Vahid- the only one; the one and only
