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.  :]

M | English (rare)

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

F | Cornish
EHL-oh-win (possibly)

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

M | English

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

F | English

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!

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
