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.
