    ast ending?

    I came across this in a fantasy context, and then I thought, "What real names end in -ast?" According to Nameberry's search, nothing. That really surprised me.

    So, are there any such names?

    One website I found had the girl name Bast.

    I've found Adraste (b), Jocaste (g) and Théophraste (g) which end in the -ast- sound... but aren't spelled exactly the same way. They're all French.
    Armogast, Cast, Erast, Teofrast, Vedast are all Catalan/ Valencian (eta: and all for boys).

    I don't know the frequency of usage for any of these, but they're all recognized by official language academies.
