Fresh is a term that is often bandied about in the name world. It’s used when parents are looking for a rarely heard, “fresh” new name, when we are “tweaking” a popular favorite to give it a “fresh” feel, or for forgotten gems that are being polished off and given a “fresh” lease on life. And often when we think fresh we think of mint. So why not combine the two? Here’s a selection of some minty fresh names to get you thinking.
Araminta – Love Arabella, but not the inevitable nickname Bella, which would also be shared with all those Isabella‘s out there? Then how about Araminta? Different but not too different, and bursting with old fashioned charm.
Eminta/Aminta – Araminta is thought to come from Aminta, a Greek name meaning ‘defender, vindicator’. It’s sleeker than Araminta, more modern looking and almost regal sounding. The Eminta spelling is also a great option.
