What’s your newest name love?

There are names I loved when I was a kid: Sandy and Lisa, Michael and David (yes, really).

And then there were names I loved when I was naming my babies: Eliza and Henry, Ned and Daisy.

Now there are names that I’ve only come to love recently, for a range of reasons.  Leonora, for instance, and Ozias.  Raymond, and Rosamund.

What are your newfound baby name loves?

I mean names that you either didn’t like or that weren’t even on your radar before.  Names that sound better (much better) to you now than they used to, either because styles have changed or your tastes have.

The question of the week is: What are your newest baby name loves, with bonus points for why?

Here, a look at some of the newest names on Nameberry.

Betsan

Betsan, a Welsh pet form of Elizabeth, is little-known outside of the U.K. but it could provide an intriguing alternative to Liz, Beth, Betsy, Betty, and Libby. Bethan is another Welsh diminutive of Elizabeth.
