Oh, Those Lucky Immigrants and Foreigners
'Cause they can use those exotic, beautiful, 7 syllable names without their friends breaking a sweat, whereas for someone living in the suburbs of upstate New York--not so much. - Created by SadieJosephine
Spanish in origin, the name Christabel means Beautiful Christ Follower, and lends itself to several different nicknames, among them Christi, Chrissie, Bel, and Bella
The name hails from Italy, meaning friendly, or kind. Possible nicknames, Ben, or the adorable and endearing Nigno
This name gets its origin in Ireland; as you could probably guess, it means Africa. Although short enough not to need a nickname, I suppose if you really wanted one you could use Ric, or Ricky.
Orrin, in meaning, is green, and like Afric, also hails from Ireland. A pleasant substitute for Owen, and shares another similarity to Afric in that it's short enough, no nickname is needed.
Exotic(yes, I like to use that word when it comes to names) and beautiful, Chevonne is the new and improved Cheyenne.
Ewan is a Scottish name, meaning From the yew. Actor: Ewan McGregor.
