Is there a list of cross-cultural names? I didn't see one. I was thinking of names that appear in quite seprate languages and cultures. For instance Lilah and Leela
seem to appear in English and Hindu, but with completely different meanings. The Same goes for Kim
which is a feminine name in English and Vietnamese and probably many more. Ken
is a man's name in English and Japanese, just as Sol
appears in Hebrew and Spanish. Naomi
appears in Japanese and in Spanish, while Rina
is another feminine name in Hebrew, Indian, Italian and English.
If there is none, could one be created?
