Fabric Names: Some good material here!
Hobbies are a great place to find fresh name inspiration! My sewing skills may leave a lot to be desired, but I do enjoy watching design shows and that counts as a hobby, right? In the midst of watching a marathon of design shows I found myself exploring fabric names.
Velvet – A name as smooth and elegant as the fabric it represents. Elizabeth Taylor wore this name well as Velvet Brown in the 1944 film National Velvet. Velvet would make a great alternative to the more popular and similar sounding Violet.
Tartan – Using the name Tartan could be one way to show your Scottish heritage. It may seem like a bit of a stretch, but Tartan has a similar sound to Titan and Trenton, both of which are currently in the top 1,000 in the United States.
Suede – A type of leather. Suede could be the perfect name for the child of a rockstar. I definitely picture Suede as the cool, mysterious kid in school. It was the name of a soap opera character on One Life to Live in the 1990s.
Eyelet – With a similar sound to Isla or Eisley, an Eyelet is a tiny hole in fabric that can be seen in lace or used to thread string through. Similar to the Hebrew name Ayelet, as in novelest Ayelet Waldman.

Calico IS fun to say, and makes a good character name… Maybe more so than an actual person’s name. I do like the idea of a protagonist named Calico Jones. Maybe a detective or something.

I think Chiffon would work nicely for a girl.

I like Ramie. It is cute, and a bit exotic.
