    Orphanedhanyou -- Sumner is the fort. :P Remember I said up there that this was for a story so I'm not "doing this to a child" but I would like to mention that I've met people in real life with a good number of these names. Saga is a mythology name as a middle on my own list.

    peanut -- there was a girl named Comfort on So You Think You Can Dance ^_^ There's a Native American girl in the Dark Hunter series called Sunshine Runningwolf. If I were to add colors like you did, and Cerulean is great, I'd add Vermillion and Xanthene. There are other colors I like but I can't think of them right now. Revel is cool. I'd use it for a bad guy since it sounds like Rebel. The Rev sound also reminded me of Reverie.

    Lexie-- I think Prosper had some decent usage in the Victorian times. It's got a nice sound.

    ameliawilliams -- Petrichor is pretty bad @ss sounding :P -- My Amazon Author Page

    Angel - Prosper is actually used in "The Lord of Thieves" which is where I discovered my love for it.
    He went by Prop and was an awesome older brother to little Boniface.
    (I am fairly certain Cornelia Funke didn't pull either name out of thin air but instead just looked for something more obscure.)

    Oh I forgot about my darling Citrine (gem-stone name). Who never makes it on a "precious stone list".
