What Are Your Favorite Word Names?

Beacon, Quince, Azure, Bliss….

A recent random search that started with Namehunter took me on a tour through a series of unusual and intriguing word names.

Which made us think of asking you: Which are your favorite word names, and why?

Traditionally, there are words that have been names for so long that they’re completely established in the lexicon: Daisy and Hope and Amber.

Then there are newer word names that are becoming widely used: Wren and Justice, True and Sky.

And then there are….well, just about any word you can think of can be a name. But should it be? Does it work?

So….which are your favorites? And what are some words you think would make great names?
