I like the thought of the Elysium fields, and this name is pretty. I like how it seems modern, but it is not. Plus she can always be Ely or Sia.

I really like it now. I like the Belle sound, yet its so different from names common now like Isabella. Plus, the goddess is really cool and people won't immedietly associate the goddess to it.

This should be in the "Yandere Simulator Characters" subcategory, there is a teacher called Reina Nana in the game. -But on another note, I love the name. Not only is the spelling cute, but it can also be used in different cultures and can't be considered weird. A lot of Japanese names have comments like, "I would never use this name outside of Japan", but this name is obviously the exception and is incredibly adorable. I hope this comment helps.

This is my name, and it's pronounced with the long 'O'. I personally hate it when people pronounce my name SAHN-YA. I can't stand for my name to be called that way. I'm glad that people ask how I spell and pronounce my name instead of assuming. It's spelled with a 'y' and it's pronounced with the long 'o'. The end. And I love my name! I feel it's unique and beautiful, and I especially love hearing my name said by those with an accent. It makes it sound even prettier!

My name is Hailey and nobody ever knows how to spell it right. They always spell it Hayley or Haley. Any time I go somewhere and I want like a bracelet or necklace with my name on it, it is never spelled right. I know many people with that name at my school and they all spell it differently. No one spells it like me, which is cool so its original. I know people that spell it these ways: Hayley, Haley, Haileigh, and Haylee. I think they are all pretty unique in there own way.

I've never known that the meaning name of Mila is so good. I feel like wow...because my real name is Patmila , my nickname is Mila, but my friends and family usually call 'mil' in shortly way. And the name of mila that I get is absorbed from both ma parents' name, besides in my country (Indonesia) there is no special meaning name of mila.

HARPER  added 12/12/2017, 6:37:59 AM by Anonymous User
My oldest daughter wanted "Harper" for her daughter, but her husband - Thank God - said "No Way!" At least he has some common sense. So, my oldest daughter pressured her younger sister into naming their daughter "Harper." Both sides of parents were shocked, to say the least. The only reason Harper was chosen was because of Harper Lee and "To Kill a Mockingbird" which my oldest daughter really liked as a novel.

I cannot stand the name for any person - male or female.
Harper is the name of a:
Ferry - Harper's Ferry
Magazine - Harper Magazine
Bazaar - Harper's Bazaar
Good last name: John Doe Harper,

...but not for a boy or a girl.

As one person pointed out, it is associated with a goddess and a monster with lots of negative connotations.

Also, it is a sign of the "culture" we live in - name a kid after a flower, rock, city, state, disease, bug, arachnids (Spyder), superhero's - Thor, vegetables, fruits, etc.

Forget about naming children after saints. With all of these 'unique' names, it is the culture influencing Christianity vs the other way around. Our culture is so heathen anymore, it's crazy.

I used to audit immunization records and I found a plethora of "unique" (weird) names, such as those cited above.
Months of the year, days of the week, seasons of the year; one lady - really - had wanted to name her daughter Chlamydia - which is a sexually transmitted disease. She thought it was a flower. Luckily the RN explained the reality to her.

So - Harper - guess I'll associate it with Heavenly Angels playing the Harp.

For those of you who think this is what the Egyptian Pharaoh was named, you're wrong.
This name is spelled "T-U-T-A-N-K-H-A-M-O-N", however the pharaoh's name was spelled "T-U-T-A-N-K-H-A-M-U-N".

I love Timothy but Tim just doesn't sound as good as Timothy. And Timmy is okay for a little boy, but a grown man, it probably won't sound so cute. Timothy always appeared to me as a classic, in a John or Susan way, but not boring like John or dated like Susan.

In the case of the DC comics character John Constantine aka Hellblazer, it's pronounced KAWNS-tən-tien (rhymes with "design" and "Valentine"). Wikipedia has this for the pronunciation of his name: (/ˈkɒnstəntaɪn/).

ELUNED  added 12/11/2017, 4:35:31 PM by Anonymous User
My name is Eluned and I'm from South Wales. I prefer my name to be pronounced 'El ee Ned' so for those who then struggle to say my name can call me Ellie for short. My parents always called me 'El in Ed', though, so I get called all variants of the name! Although, a many people who've never heard of the name Eluned are keen to learn the full pronunciation and spelling of it (my preferred pronunciation).

Unfortunately for an unusual name came unwanted name calling and nicknames growing up. But I loved having my name called in class and not having to look around to see if the teacher meant the other Eluned!

between the meanings of "you have been humbled" and "one with spaced teeth", I think of paper-doll animations from PBS. My mom thinks it would fit a little girl, being as she's named three kids that never got picked on for there names, I think that's a good voucher.

AURORA  added 12/11/2017, 11:38:30 AM by Anonymous User
It's amazing how many people are willing to leave nasty comments about names. Such comments really say more about the person who left the comment than about the name. I doubt this name would be used by so many people if it were really so gag inducing.

I personally think it's a beautiful name. It reminds me of the Aurora Borealis. It's hard to think of a more gorgeous natural phenomenon than the Northern Lights. If it also brings to mind the Disney princess, who cares? Disney used this name in their movie because that's the name used in Tchaikovsky's ballet 'The Sleeping Beauty', which was largely considered his best work. It originally goes back to the Roman goddess and the Latin word for dawn. It also shares roots with the Latin word for 'gold'.

Rora, Auri, Aura, Ara, Ro, and Rory are all pretty cute and usable nicknames; although, Rory outside of the US probably won't become popular due to Rory being such a popular boy's name in the UK.

I've seen a lot of people suggest 'Aurelia' instead on various name sites as the better alternative, but it basically just comes down to a matter of preference. If I wanted to tear down Aurelia as a name, I could just as easily do so. If you came to comments page because you like the name Aurora, don't let rude comments deter you or convince you to lean toward a name you like less. Pregnancy and post-natal months are already stressful without toxic anons.

I can't believe people make such rude comments about a name. People actually have these names! If you don't like it then keep it to yourself. I know someone who read bad comments about her name and started hating it! By the way the name Jadyn is a beautiful name for any boy or girl. If you are a girl with the name Jadyn don't let people tell you that it's boyish or whatever. Embrace your name and be proud of it!
