Happy Monday, y'all!
How was your weekend?  Have Spring sprung where you are yet?  If not, hope it will soon!  I'm loving all the sunshine we are getting right now.  *heart eyes*

Well!  Here's a fresh set of names for you, m'dears.  :]

(possibly) oh-NAH-jee, or oh-nah-HEY

These are all rather unique. *^ - ^*


  1. Unfortunately spring has sprung here and now everyone and their mother is sick. Blah. But at least it's not raining, so that's something. It's been so long since we last saw the sun!

    I love this list of names!! I think Sitara is my favorite.

    1. Oh dear! So sorry, but I suppose that's part of it. I agree about the lack of rain---I've been praying our Lord keeps it at bay. I've so missed the sunshine!

      Thanks, girlie! Sitara is so lovely ^_^

  2. These are all so unique! I don't know if I have a favorite. I love them ALL! :D

    1. Awww, thanks! I've debated on using Emyr in a WIP---actually I kinda just threw it in there cuz I needed a random name & that one popped up. Not sure if it'll stick, but me likey. And same! I love all of these!

  3. I love the name Torin. <3 These are all great!

  4. Emyr is really, really cool! I love it.

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.

ppl love these
