People invent new names all the time, so why not you?
Surely you can do better than Hatice or Loganne, Zake or Zyree, all genuine invented names found on the 2013 U.S. official baby name list.
To motivate you further, we are offering a complete library of our ebooks to the inventor of the name we deem the best. And by best we mean the most attractive, most theoretically usable, most inspired, and one we like the most.
Your invented name can be a combination of two (or more) existing names, a word turned into a name, or a confection spun from the ether.
Last week we asked you to name your favorite classic name for girls; now it’s the boys’ turn.
There are quiet classic boys’ names such as Robert and Richard and John, no longer quite in style yet undeniably classics. And then there are trendy names such as Noah and Sebastian that may or may not qualify as classics in your book.
What’s your very favorite classic boys’ name? And yes, sure, you can mention more than one.
What’s your very favorite classic girls’ name? And yes, sure, you can mention more than one.
True confession time: What name do you, did you, have you only pretended to like?
Maybe it was the name chosen by a family member or friend.
Or the name selected by a neighbor or someone you met online.
Or you might pretend to like a name that everybody else seems to like….except you really don’t.
Names travel among cultures further and faster now than ever before.
The British like such French names as Sophie and Chloe, while in France there’s a craze for British names such as Emma and Tom. And then there are those names used throughout Europe that are gaining some attention in the US: Cosima, Leonie, Roman.
