    College---perfect for hearing "new" names!

    My campus is very diverse, and mostly a commuter university..lots of internationals, people from all parts of the country, different get the idea. I'm almost at the end of my freshman year, but really only now began realizing all the different names around here!

    Here are some names, of people i have met or interacted with recently, that i thought some of ya'll may find interesting.

    Keon (m)
    Unique (f) -ironically enough, she's one of 3 or 4..
    Tyelar (f) -i've met 2 female Tyelars, no males though!
    Aisha (f)
    Bart (m) -not sure if it's short for something or if its a stand-alone
    Anyea (f) - prn: on-yay ..that's how she spells it too
    Lydia (f) -LOVED seeing this name!
    Octavia (f) -was surprised, since she's only around 20
    Chalondias (f) -i really don't know how to pronounce this..
    Sana (f) -prn. sun-na
    Olga (f)
    Brady (m)
    Darcy (f)
    Kirby (m)
    Sesar (m) -prn. Cesar
    Phillip (m)
    Hilary (f)
    Mahlie (f) - molly
    Lisandra (f)
    Lelia (f)
    Beige (f) -her mn is Angel.
    Demitria (f) -mn is Alexis...interesting pairing!
    Elaine (f)

    England (f)

    east93: Yeah, I didn't understand those as well either! Beige, Sparkle, and Unique made me make a face...I'm all for parents choosing names that mean something to them (within reason), but I just couldn't get behind these ones!

    Chalondias...I really don't know if this like a family name or a smoosh name or what..

    England...I never heard this used before. London, Ireland, Asia, yeah...but never England. Her middle name is Rose, and I thought that made for some beautiful imagery.. May I ask why this one 'angered' you? Just curious

    renrose: lol that's funny! true enough, i can't imagine this as being more than a nickname in cases like that, than an actual legal name :/

    Thankyou for your opinions!!

    Beige! Ahahaha. That's what my friend and I jokingly nicknamed the vapid girlfriend of our shallow friend at university.

    Sorry to anyone who read TSI. First draft was terrible. Second drafting now.

    Sparkle...why? There are a lot of those that I don't like. Octavia and Olga for example. Did these people actually go by the names?

    Wow, Lydia cool to see that. I also like Elaine and Demetria.
