    funny, laughter, humor names

    My daughter's name is the name of the Greek muse of comedy, although it doesn't directly mean "comedy". Isaac means laughter, but I'm having another girl.

    Are there any other girls names that are related to comedy or humor in any way, even indirectly?

    Thanks!
    Love my Thalia

    Ilaria comes to mind—it's from the same root as Hilary and the English word "hilarious." Means cheerful, happy.

    Risa means "laughter" in Spanish—I like that as a name.

    I love the suggestion of Risa!
    The only ones I can think of are ones that mean happiness like Felicity, Annabelle or Alena
    Unless you want to name your child after a comedian, then there’s Amy, Ellen or Fallon

    Risa is a phenomenal suggestion!!!!!

    I couldn't really think of any others for laughter but here's my thought process and suggestions:

    Isaac can be spelled Issac and that spelled backwards is Cassi ..... although if you plan on having more children and want to name your son Isaac you probably don't want to do that.

    The Muse your daughter is named after is also a muse of poetry and one of the other Muses of poetry is Calliope... although that may make you feel forced to stick to a theme if you have more kids.

    I had to brush up on my history for this response but the internet told me Thalia is portrayed wearing Ivy, and Ivy is a pretty cute name! A connection but probably not the right one you're looking for.

    So.... Risa is still my fave suggestion but I thought I'd offer those up even though they're not comedy themed like you asked for! I'll keep brainstorming and if I think of something I like better than Risa I'll post it!
