What's in a Name?

Welcome back, lovelies.  It's been a rather tough and overwhelming Monday, but I've made it this far (thank You, Lord), so I'll "keep plugging away," as my hubby says.  

Here's some new names to add to your story arsenal!

M | Welsh, English

Anglicized form of Iefan, a Welsh form of John, which is primarily derived from a Hebrew name meaning "YAHWEH is gracious."

NOTE:  I thought I had previously posted this one before, but I couldn't find it in my archives, so here it is.  :]  This one has special meaning for me as it is the given name of my dear husband. *^ - ^*)

F | English

Diminutive of Philippa, the Latinate feminine form of Philip, which ultimately means "friends of horses."

M | Unknown

Meaning and origin unknown.

F | French

French form of Amy, which in turn is the English form of the Old French name Amée, meaning "beloved."

Namarié, my friends.  Have a lovely week!
{BTW, how's NaNo prep coming??}


  1. Saegan is a really unusual one....I wonder which culture claims that one?


  2. How sweet you used Evan's name. You're just too precious!

    Saegan is such a cool name! :O I literally just jotted it down (because I keep a list of names that strike me as potential character names) I like it so much!

    And that's so funny you used that last picture (the one for Amiee), because I've cast that girl as my main character in my NaNo novel. XD She's perfect for my MC! Huzzah for pinterest providing us with story inspiring pictures! Lol.

    Anyways, this was all great. Thank you for the lovely suggestions!

  3. Catherine: I'm not sure... But I love it! It's so different :]

    Lauri: *^ - ^* heehee Yes! So glad you did! I'll be looking for snippets with that one someday... ;D And that's awesome! I loved her smile, so I had to use that for Aimee. ^_^

    Thanks for commenting, ladies!!


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.
