There was a little Cora at the pool today. She was about a year and a half.

lcd1912Participant2 weeks, 4 days ago
*or el-sil-iya sorry
yellowwattsParticipant2 weeks, 4 days ago
LOVE Cora! Harris is cool! I’ve never thought of that one before.
TwoSapphiresParticipant2 weeks, 2 days ago
Elsilia is interesting. I haven’t heard that one either. Not quite sure what I think of it.

There is a little boy in my 2 year old’s class named Fyodor, called Fyo. The mom says, just like Theo but with an ‘F’
TwoSapphiresParticipant1 week, 5 days ago
I’ve seen Fyodor before. Fyo is an interesting nickname.
Last night I came across an Anasia and an Abelius.

A friend named her new baby Mia today.
TwoSapphiresParticipant1 week, 4 days ago
I met a baby Mia tonight! (She is 10 months old but they live overseas so tonight I finally got to meet her for the first time.) Her name is Maria, nn Mia; I love that. She has 3 older brothers who all have Old Testament names.

Born today: Anabelle Selah (not sure how to prn this name either!? See-lah I assume?) Big brother is Benjamin Riley

A woman in Waitrose was shouting at her son: “Aristotle, put that back right now!”
I laughed so hard when she left…

Trio of sisters at work the other day named Makenzi (newborn), Isabel, and Olivia. So many popular names in one family, but other than the spelling of Makenzi, I actually like them all together!
There were also sisters Maura and Deirdre, and a girl named Rylee with brother Jake.

it’s not one I’ve heard/seen lately, but it has been going through my head: Tabrett
It’s the name of an actress on the tv series Legend of the Seeker (2008-10). I find it odd that it’s been in my head lately since I haven’t watched the show in about a year.

I love Maura!
LOL at Aristotle!

@lcd1912 – I’ve always heard Selah as SAY-lah. I think Sela is SEE-lah. Either way, Anabelle Selah is pretty cool (although I prefer the more streamlined and classic Annabel Sarah, which looks similar to me), and Benjamin and Anabelle are pretty cool together.
Aristotle, erm, well, it doesn’t seem that unusual to me. People are talking about naming their kids Persephone, Cicero, Seneca, Aries, Apollo, etc.–is Aristotle too far off? Besides, I think the Hebrew Ari is starting to come in for boys, so it even gives a nn option. I wouldn’t suggest it, but I’m not terribly surprised.
I’ve been on holiday at the beach for the past week, and I’ve heard quite a few names! A lot of them were quite boring (Logan, Lucas, Ava, etc.), but these I thought were semi-interesting:
Miles (he had a sister, or a cousin, or something, named Lily, or at least, nn’d Lily)
McKenna, Maddie, and Myla (sisters. Not sure about spellings. I assume Maddie was short for something, but that’s all I heard her parents call her. I went with the Myla spelling since Mila is so often pronounced like Mila Kunis now, but it could have been Mila? Their dad was Noah, which I thought was pretty cool, too. I’m always happy to hear Noah on a guy around my age!)
Abigail, Andrew, Charlotte, Benjamin, and Natalie (cousins at the least, but potentially siblings. I thought they fit REALLY well together, though! Charlotte is my favorite, but I also really love Andrew, and, well, honestly, all of them!)
Connor and Carson
Gavin and Brady
Ben and McKenna (also heard Kinna Rae/Kenna Rae, so I’m wondering if she was McKenna Rae, nn Kenna Rae? I’m assuming Ben is short for Benjamin…)
Bryce, Avery (g), and Kenley (g)
And that’s about the extent of my memory, haha. I tried to keep more names locked away in there, but only so many fit, over a week.

I know several Selahs. One is pronounced See-luh but the rest are pronounced Say-luh.
I have friends who are naming their new baby boy Atlas.
