Okay onomatologists, I need your help. As you may have noticed, each name in the database now has usage information attached to it describing where it is (or was) used. But there are still about 600 names that haven't been assigned a category.

Some of these names are fairly dubious, and I'm contemplating deleting more than a few of them. However most of them are valid - I either don't know where they are used or I haven't yet decided how to classify them.

The list of unclassified names is here: http://www.behindthename.com/nmc/unkn.html
I'm sure some of you know where these names are used. You can either email me or post here. This will be an ongoing project.

PS: Guesses are not very helpful. It's not really good enough to say "well, that name LOOKS like a Muslim name". Please be relatively sure before you venture your input. Not to sound rude or ungrateful or anything... :)
