What's in a Name? | Wednesday Edition

Happy Wednesday!  
How was your week progressing thus far?  Is it Springtime where you live??

Well, normally, as most of you would know, I post Name sets on Mondays. . . But this week is pretty packed with happenings at Overland-home, as well as preparations for a sister's wedding shower.  Sooo, instead of a deep, inspirational word-post, you get one of these! 

I know it's been a few weeks since I've posted these. . .  But anywho, here's a new set of names if you need to freshen up some characters in your WIP.  They are rather unique, this set is.  :]


Grayson
M | English (rare)
GRAY-sǝn

From an English surname meaning "son of the steward," which is derived from the Middle English greyve "steward."












Elowen
F | Cornish
EHL-oh-win (possibly)

Means "elm tree" in Cornish.  This is a recently coined Cornish given name.


Archer
M | English
AR-cher

From an English surname meaning "bowman, archer," of Old French origins.






Marissa
F | English
mǝ-RIS-sah

Meaning uncertain.  Most likely derived from the combination of Maria, a variant of Mary (which possibly means "beloved" or "love"), and Luisa (from Luis or Louis, which hails from Ludwig meaning "famous" and "war, battle").










------------------------------

What do you think?  Which one is your favorite??  
I think Elowen is a beautiful name for a Medieval maiden!  And Grayson has always been a fav of mine.  :]

Fairfarren, for now, m'dears!
