alright, i have a list of about 300 names (most of which i have found reason to believe, although not exactly reliable, are real names)
some i KNOW are real, and just simply not here!
Those names aren't exactly in an organized list, of ethnic backround, and gender, and meaning. etc. so when i geta round to it ill post some
good past time for me, im addicted to the site :s (cant be healthy...)
I thought i'd start with the very basic, names in my family backround, that i do/don't know backround, i always know gender, and mos ti know meaning to
Some I dont, and actually the etymolgy stuff is practically in my veins, family members on both sides, very far back have recorded names, backround, and 'meaning' (ok, some of these meanings, i dont believe, they are just all i got!)
My family backrounds are the following (i hope this helps)
French, English, Scottish, Austrian, Russian, Native, African (Zimbawe/Ethopia), Polish, German, Dutch, & Irish
Mostly scottish, and the african is FAR back, we only know of it bcz the dark skin skips generations, -rambling-
Ok here we go
Hylan (Hi-lahn) (m) - (gaelic) "From the highlands" name of great great etc grandfather's brother 1500-1600 area
Yaddaran (Yah-dare-en) - NO CLUE!

Jenesis (like the name Genesis) - the person (some great aunt) was Dutch, but her parents living down in the Palestine area, and this is much mroe recent, early 1800's
