Today, we present word names on a Valentine’s theme. Modern English word names are a style that just keeps growing, and the twelve on this list are a mix of rising favorites and rarities still waiting to be discovered. Although they all link to Valentine’s Day, they’re lovely names for February babies or indeed, those born every day of the year.
We’re expecting our third baby and having a great deal of difficulty picking a name.
We have a literary theme going with our kids: Ender Grey and LyraYvaine. We hope to continue the tradition by also naming this one after strong literary figures from science fiction and fantasy. It’s no secret that we prefer unusual names, and we also want everyone in the family to have a unique first initial.
Our surname is unusual, and starts with an S, so names that end with an ‘s’ or ‘x’ sound don’t work.
