      Celtic
    • Meaning:

      "blessed raven"
    • Description:

      Greek
    • Meaning:

      "kingfisher bird"
    • Description:

      Heaven, Peace, Serenity: parents seem especially attracted to word names that signal paradise, but Halcyon sounds quite feminine, and might conjure up the sleeping pill Halcion.
  3. Lark
    • Origin:

      English bird name
    • Description:

      Lark is getting some new and well-deserved attention as a post-Robin and Raven bird name. Although it was first recorded as a name in the 1830's, it has never appeared on the Social Security list.
  4. Linnet
    • Origin:

      French
    • Meaning:

      "flaxen haired"

      Although the accent in Linnet is on the first syllable, it could be confused with the dated Lynette.
  5. Phoenix
    • Origin:

      Arizona place-name and Greek
    • Meaning:

      "dark red"
    • Description:

      Phoenix rolls a lot of cool trends into one: it's a place-name and a bird name, it ends in the oh-so-hip letter x, and as the mythic bird that rose from the ashes, it's a symbol of immortality.
