There's a good chance it has influence from the Phoenician root meaning "mine"

TAYLA  added 2/23/2018, 9:53:58 AM by TaylaMikel
My parents named me Mikel Tayla, however my Father wanted to call me by my middle name Tayla. With that said I still go by the name Tayla, everyone calls me this including my husband. But honestly, Mikel feels more like my ‘real’ name. It’s hard to make that transition after being called Tayla for 36 years. I do believe this name ages well. As people have told me my whole life they love my name. Tay, Tay-Tay, Tay-tor-tot (my dads nickname for me) all of these have felt sincere and endearing. My name has separated me from the norm. I was raised by educated parents. My Father a Physcist and my mother an accountant. I am a musician, an artist, a charity volunteer and a mother of two. This is not a “ghetto” name! Or a slang/Ebonics half-said, mis-pronounced named. Wanted to make that correction to the assumptions. However everyone is entitled to their opinions; I think we all need more “Tayla’s” in the world!

SONYA  added 2/23/2018, 9:42:07 AM by SonyanDenny
My name is also Sonya. I use to hate it when I was a kid because it was so different. As I got older I loved that it was different and how so many people responded so well to hearing my name. So many people pronounce my name in different ways. I now answer to all pronunciations. I get SAW-nya, SON-ya, SIHN-ya, Sandra, SON-dra, SON, Sandy, Casandra, Sophy. Lol my husband and his family pronounce my name SON-ya and they met a life long friend of mine who pronounces my name the way my family pronounce it and that is SIHN-ya. They said we have been pronouncing your name wrong for 15 years? Lol I said no I actually prefer SON-ya so its all good.

While traditionally a mens name, it is not unusual to hear of women with this name. It should be considered a Unisex name.

Gaylord was the name of a toy "walking" dog introduced by the Ideal Toy Company in 1962.

"GayyyyyLORD! When you pull his leash, he'll walkity-walkity-walk with you! BARK! BARK!" (That song always plays in my mind when I hear this name. Not a kid of the sixties, just like to watch old toy commercials on YouTube.)

The boy in The Neverending Story was named Bastian. The movie really helped people pronounce the name correctly. It's my maiden name and we have been called Bas-stain many times in the past. It's wonderful to have people recognize the name. Put an "Se" in front of it and everyone seems to be able to pronounce it.

BALDO  added 2/22/2018, 10:39:26 PM by Lucille
In Italian, Baldo is not always a short form of masculine Germanic given names that contain the element 'bald' meaning "bold, brave". Sometimes it is also a short form of Baldassarre, which is the Italian form of Balthazar. See also:

- Baldassare Di Maggio (b. 1954), an Italian maffioso who is also known as Baldo and Balduccio: (in Italian)

FLORIAN  added 2/22/2018, 9:10:41 PM by Aurora-2
Personally, I named my son Florian since it's unique and also one of few names that sounds the same in the various languages of our family. With very common names ourselves, we also wanted to avoid our son running into the situation of having the same name as multiple classmates or coworkers and also not too strange or unpronounceable.

Interestingly "Florian" still carries a lot of different stigma - but not the same ones as for English speakers(floral, feminine, girly?). For example, for my Czech family, it's a common family (last) name and sounds odd to them as a first name. The Belgian part of the family likes "Florian" but find it outdated... wasn't it popular in 1920's-40's :) they say? Then the French Canadian branch ironically find the name a bit too snobby and European sounding.

Apparently the name "Florian" will always have a hard time.
Mind you its overly popular in Austria, Poland, perhaps Denmark and elsewhere etc!

Anyway, I like it, plus it has the great nickname of "Flo"

DESIRAE  added 2/22/2018, 8:59:02 PM by DesireeR.
Desiree is the correct spelling - it's not a name to be creative with - it's a French name and it became popular when the book Desiree by Annemarie Selinko and the movie Desiree with Marlon Brando & Jean Simmons came out! I really hate it when people try to twist and change the name. My name is Desiree far as I'm concerned it's the only way to spell it. Desiree Clary was Napoleon Bonapart's fiancee before he married Josephine. She went onto become the Queen of Sweden and Norway.
