KERENSA  added 3/30/2017, 7:35:47 AM by kerensap
My name is Kerensa. My mom named me after a Victoria Holt book. When I was in school I went by Keri because children consistently made fun of my name & it didn't come easy for them to pronounce. But I don't think it is that hard to pronounce.

I absolutely love my name and have only met 1 other Kerensa in real life. I don't think it sounds old lady like & absolutely love my name.

I also hate it when people pronounce it with a z. At the end it should sound like "suh".

ERIC  added 3/30/2017, 1:16:02 AM by QueenNeferTamy
This has always been my favorite male name and when I used to contemplate having human children I always said I'd name my son, if I had one, Eric. I know the one with the k-ending spelling is more popular but I highly dislike it. But what really is an eyesore to me is the ck-ending spelling. That's atrocious and unnecessary. Eric with a c looks so classy, gentlemanly, strong, and what a courageous boy or young man would suit bearing accordingly. Now that I've decided I won't be having kids, I'll either name one of my cats in the future Eric or a character in one my stories will be an Eric.

This is my mom's name and it is somewhat popular in Nicaragua, my mom's native country, and a vastly female name there. In fact, a popular public figure in Nicaragua is Aminta Granera - National Police Chief and the only woman who is a senior public security official in Latin America.

TAMARA  added 3/30/2017, 12:32:44 AM by QueenNeferTamy
This is my name and though I now couldn't picture myself not being named Tamara, this name has given me numerous headaches when attempting to correct people's pronunciation, vastly Anglophones. They have a way of converting the middle a into an e which makes it sound Tah-Mare-ah and that is bad. I guess that's why some of the above don't think too much of it because English kills this name and that's the root of the problem. I find my name very elegant and strong its not being too common an advantage. In Spanish, Tamara sounds way better and captures the classy, strong and feminine ring of it. And contrary to those above, I like being called Tamy every once and then, though I like it written with just one m because consistently, my name only has one m not two. Even if people think my name is trashy, I don't care now. Took me a long time to embrace my name and negative comments won't make me dislike it again.

NEFERTARI  added 3/30/2017, 12:08:33 AM by QueenNeferTamy
Got to know more of the real Queen Nefertari watching the Brazilian biblical series inspired and based on the Exodus "Os Dez Mandamentos" played by actress Camilla Rodrigues. In this take, there's a love triangle drama of sorts between Nefertari, Ramses, and Moises. I personally love the name (inspired my username) and I don't think it's too much a bullying material name. I find super adorable and a little girl would be lucky to bear it.

CIRO  added 3/29/2017, 11:57:00 PM by QueenNeferTamy
The only time I've ever heard this name is on a Mexican telenovela I'm currently watching in which one of the characters' name is Ciro Palafox and I fell in love with it and that's what brought me here to find out what it means and its origin. I personally like the Latin American pronunciation more but I'm a little bias because I'm Latin American. I don't know why but I think this name would be perfect for a black and white tuxedo kitty. In fact, if I ever adopt another tuxedo cat I'm naming him Ciro.

JAYLA  added 3/29/2017, 9:59:20 PM by JayIsNotAmazing
This is my birth name and I absolutely HATE it. It sounds too new and trendy. As a 15-year-old, I'd rather be named something classic like Meredith or Laura. My sister even has a nice name, Kelsey. But I'm stuck with a crazy mixture of popular syllables. I call myself Jay, and I'll probably legally change it to Jay or Jasper. Not to mention my mother spelled my middle name in the most kreatyv way she could (Briana [Bree-Ahn-Uh] spelled Breeannah)

FLORENCIA  added 3/29/2017, 9:06:47 PM by lilolaf
Florencia Trinidad better known by her stage name Flor de la V, is an Argentine actress, television personality, comedian and vedette. As producer Gerardo Sofovich's protégée, who discovered her in a 1998 revue in Buenos Aires, Trinidad gained media exposure and got small television roles. Her role in the widely successful Los Roldán gave her international notoriety. Over the years, Trinidad has become a household name in Argentine show business.

In 2014, GLAAD stated that "through her advocacy and proud visibility, [she] has contributed immensely to advancing the equality movement around the world and particularly in Argentina." She became the first transgender person in Argentina to get her name and the gender on her government-issued ID legally changed without pathologizing her gender identity, two years before the national Gender Identity Law was established.

CECIL  added 3/29/2017, 1:38:01 PM by Serafina Starstrider
I love both pronunciations of Cecil. But SEE-səl is the family pronunciation.

My husband's French Canadian great grandfather was named Cecil pronounced SEE-səl. My half German, half English great grandfather was named John Cecil pronounced SEE-səl. His English side of the family had partially come to America on the Mayflower and from other American families who had been here for a while. His German side of the family were more recent immigrants I think. My main point is that SEE-səl is not a recent pronunciation in North America, it's been around since at least the late 1800's.

ALICE  added 3/29/2017, 12:40:05 PM by erb816
Alice is one of the sweetest, saddest, most Gothic names out there. No lie. I think it's mainly due to literary history, which then influenced popular music (Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit," Sisters of Mercy's "Alice," etc.). Alice is equally at home in a bright sundress, ghostly white, and in all black with a spiky choker.

Also, I think Alice is most fitting on a redhead. Just my perception.

AQUILA  added 3/29/2017, 9:04:43 AM by El is a Beth
Could anyone tell me where or when Aquila was used as a feminine name? I want to know because I named a female character in my story Aquila, thinking that because it's grammatically feminine in Latin it'd be used for girls. But Wikipedia only mentions males having this as a first name, so I'm confused ...

ĄŽUOLAS  added 3/28/2017, 5:20:22 AM by Lucille
Derived from the Lithuanian noun 'ąžuolas' meaning "oak tree".

In Lithuanian folklore and popular culture, Ąžuolas is the name of one of the three sons of the titular character of the folk tale "Eglė žalčių karalienė", which translates to English as "Eglė, the Queen of Serpents".

EGLĖ  added 3/28/2017, 5:02:26 AM by Lucille
SilverDolphin218: No, the Lithuanian word for "pine tree" is "pušis". Take a look around on Wikipedia and Wiktionary, for example:

- entry for eglė (spruce tree) on Wikipedia: (in Lithuanian)
- entry for eglė (spruce tree) on Wiktionary: (in English)
- entry for pušis (pine tree) on Wikipedia: (in Lithuanian)
- entry for pušis (pine tree) on Wiktionary: (in English)

To the webmaster of this website: seeing as Eglė is the name of a character from the well-known Lithuanian folk tale "Eglė žalčių karalienė" (which means "Eglė, the Queen of Serpents" in English), it might be a good idea to include the title of the folk tale in the entry for this name. For more information, please see: (in English)

On a related note, adding one (or more) of the following categories to the name's entry might also be something worth considering:
- Baltic Mythology (or Lithuanian Mythology, if you'd like to make it even more specific);
- Folklore;
- Popular Culture.

Finally, just in case it might come in handy someday, here are a bunch of (mostly) Lithuanian sources relating to the given name Eglė:

BROOKE  added 3/27/2017, 8:53:16 PM by Anonymous User
The name "Brooke", if we are interpreting it as "brook", can be taken in many different lights to mean many different things.

As a carrier of the name, I always get discouraged when I see the common definitions such as, "a small stream" or "one who lives by a stream." I think that we can take those into context and consider what they mean as symbols.

As a small stream, you are calm, gentle, but strong and persistent enough to carve a path for yourself in the ground. You are friendly, inviting; people tend to have spring picnics by brooks and streams, finding their petite and sweet natures very endearing. Bright, enthusiastic, passionate... those are all the words that I would use to describe a brook, and therefore, a Brooke.

Not to mention one who lives by a stream- these people, in their time, were practical and forward-thinking, because the best thing to do for your health in times of no running water or electricity would be to live by a body of water. While most people lived in huge cities by seaports, these people clearly kept to themselves, as brooks tend to take form in uncharted sections of forests. So, while these people were rather secluded and introverted, they were still intuitive and intellectual, plotting where they lived according to what was logical.

All in all, what should be taken away from this is that though a Brooke may seem introverted and calm on the outside, she is truly bubbly, enthusiastic, and persistent on the inside, and should not be underestimated, and whose kindness should not be taken as weakness.

She doesn't have to be the stereotypical blonde you see in movies.
(I am a girl named Brooke, and I dislike being prejudiced as that, even though the people I know would never even dream that I'd be like that.)

My name is Maria Soleil, and I've gone by Soleil since I was a kid. It has its ups and downs. I think I've grown into it now, at 23. I worked somewhere I had to wear a nametag and I had multiple comments daily on what a beautiful, unique name it is. It's definitely a conversation starter! Growing up in Canada I took French immersion, which was useful because lots of people ask me if I speak French because of my name (I do, I'm fluent). Sometimes "soleil" would be on a spelling test and my classmates would wink at me. When I was younger, especially in school, a lot of people found it hard to pronounce ("sol-eel? sol-ee-ay?") but no one's had that problem in a few years. I still wish I had a more normal name, but I guess I can appreciate its uniqueness.
