What's in a Name?

A new set of names, my friends!  

Can you believe there's approximately TWO WEEKS left until NaNo??  TT_TT AHHHHHH!!! I'm not ready!!!  *runs away sobbing and simultaneously laughing hysterically*


Anyone in need of names for your NaNo characters?  You've come to the write place!!  (<---  heehee See what I did there?)  I have loads of names for you to choose from.  If you have one in mind, simply type it in the search bar on your right, and if I've posted it in the past, it should pop up.  And, if none of the ones I've shared here on the blog have the right ring to them, visit this website to search for both names and/or meanings.  Best of luck to you!

In the meantime, enjoy this set.  :]

M | English

From a surname, which originally was a place name meaning "place of the cow shed" in Old English.  A well-known bearer of this name is the romantic poet, Lord Byron (1788-1824), the writer of 'Don Juan' and many other works.

F | Arabic
most likely pronounced as spelled

Feminine form of Na'im, which means "tranquil, happy, at ease" in Arabic.

F | English (rare), German (rare), Late Roman

The Feminine form of the Late Latin name Seraphinus, ultimately derived from the biblical word seraphim, of Hebrew origin, meaning "fiery ones."  In the Old Testament, the seraphim were an order of angels, described as having six wings by the prophet Isaiah.

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.
