Two (very noising, but also very adorable) little boys who were standing behind me in the line with their mothers at the supermarket today were called (apparently, at least that was what the mums were shouting out loud) Otto and Obel. Rather uncommon names, but it suits the old-fashioned trend in names we're experiencing here in Denmark.Exporting names from Greenland and Inuit mythology

Met brothers at the park today named Isaac, Malachi, and Elijah. They were 9, 6, and 4 respectively.
Also, my family and I stopped off at a (very tasty) local dive in small town Tennessee on our way back from Louisville... I overheard a dad scolding his sons Boyd and Grigsby. I assumed both were family surnames, but I'd never even heard Grigsby before.

I ran into my first Nevaeh yesterday at my youth group. Two girls had been volunteering in the nursery, and brought over an adorable 14 month old baby girl. Being a name nerd, I promptly asked what her name is. "It's Nevaeh (they said it neh-VAY-uh, which is how I intuitively pronounce it), heaven spelled backwards. Isn't so cute?"
I have impulse issues due to my ADD, so I was very proud of myself that I smiled and said, "That's nice" and changed the subject to her adorable outfit.~lucy reine~~ celestine eira ~ mary simona ~ elizabeth echo "ellie" ~ eleanor maeve "lena" ~ vivienne isla ~ celia matilda "cici" ~ catherine aiko "rin" ~ elsa verity ~~ jasper red ~ evander lachlan 'evan'~ kai nicholas ~ ezra link ~ avery thomas ~ michael satoshi "mischa" ~ finn jeremias ~ ezekiel hayden ~ alexander rowan "sacha" ~

I ran in to a mom in the supermarket with a 13 month old baby girl named Imogen, I know there's a host of people on here that love Imogen but it is one name that I absolutely HATE! She pronounced it Emo-jen (I've heard it pronounced a few other ways too) and all I could say was "Isn't she sweet" while gagging on the insideCoraline "Corey", Georgiana "Georgie", Cecilia "Cici", Guinevere "Gwen", Rosamond "Rozz"
