What's in a Name?

It's Monday again.

Er, I mean ---

Happy Monday, all!  ;D
I've got some Futuristic names for you today, me lovely beans.  It's been quite a while since I've featured any in that particular genre, and when I stumbled on Destry last week, I thought it'd be as good a time as any.  :]

{For those of you who may be new to this little blog and are wondering what this could possibly be, then please, allow me to humbly explain:  I feature Name posts every (most) Monday.  As a hobbyist writer, I LOVE finding new, unique, old-fashioned, and/or lovely names for my characters.  Being a collector of such names, so to speak, I enjoy seeking out the meaning and history behind them as well.  I started this series to share what I find and maybe even inspire names for characters of your own, if you too are a self-proclaimed writer---or even a published author.  :]  So, with all that said. . .}

M | English
FALL-ken, or FAL-ken

Meaning unknown.  Could possibly be a variant of Falcon, the name for the bird.

F & M | English

Possibly from the name Destrier, a French surname derived from the Anglo-Norman word destrer, meaning "warhorse." 

M | African-American, English (modern), Irish, Dutch
KY-in, KY-an, k-yan or KEE-an

Possibly derived from the Yoruba name Kayin, meaning "a long-awaited child." Or a variant spelling of Cian, which means "ancient" in Gaelic.

F | English (modern)

A variant of Mia, which is the Scandinavian, Dutch, and German diminutive of Maria, ultimately derived from the Hebrew Mary, possibly meaning "beloved" or "love."

Do you have a favorite of the names featured here? Can you add any new and unique ones to this small list??

Have a great week, dear friends!


  1. I really do see these as futuristic names! Nice list, Sarah!

    I like Kyan the best :)


    1. Thanks, girl! Yes, Kyan is unique and easily pronounced, I believe. But Falken & Destry are probably my two faves of this lot ;D

  2. Love these!

    Great post, as usual! <3

  3. Oh my goodness, this is one of my favorite groups of names you've shared yet! I love ALL of these. Destry is amaziiiing. Falken and Kyan is fantastic too. And Mya is so pretty.

    I'm adding ALL of these to my list of names! Thank you so much, Sarah! :D

    1. YESSS, I loves them all!! They are simply, yet unique, and so very easy to pronounce. Some true name-gems, to be sure!

      Please do!! And it's an absolute pleasure. *^ - ^*

  4. I love each of these names, but I think I especially love Destry. It sounds like such a lovely name!!

    1. I totally agree with you. Destry was the name I came across first, and I loved how different it is! I could see it used for both a boy or girl, but I think I like it best as a girl's name. :]

  5. Oooh, I LOVE these. I really want to name a character Falken now! :D

    1. Thanks!! YESSSSSS, do it!!! I'd love to see what kind of character you would make him (or her, cuz it could be used for a female, I think) :D

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.
