    I didn’t meet very many interestingly named kids today (although I did meet an adorable baby Emma!), but I came across adults with these interesting names:

    Adelaida (I wonder if this is Adelaide-ah or add-eh-LYE-dah? I could see either. Either way, I love it!)
    George
    Leo
    Optimus (I don’t know whether to take this seriously or not, but if somebody can pull it off, it is seriously cool!)

    I like Adelaida, too! And of course I love Leo. I’m neutral on George.

    Optimus … wow. I’m sure all the Transformers fans love that one. ;)

    I just came across the name Zia. I thought that was interesting! (Not sure if it’s short for something; I was curious if it’s a real name but couldn’t find it on this site.)

    Maximus
    Rafael (nn Rafa)
    Iolanthe (nn Io)
    Millicent (nn Millie)
    Saskia (nn Sassy)
    Aurelia

    Interesting names, @Tara! I knew a Saskia once. She was from South Africa, IIRC. Iolanthe is interesting. I love Rafael. Millicent/Millie is cute and Aurelia is very pretty. Maximus always strikes me as a big name to pull off; how old was he?

    I just came across the name Kalyson. I’d never heard that name before.

    @TwoSapphires Maximus is all of 4 months old. He goes by Max 90% of the time :)

    I haven’t heard Valares or Mylah before.
    I love Brigitta; I don’t remember ever hearing it outside of The Sound of Music! :)

    @TheWishingStar, fwiw, Madison *is* still a trendy newborn name. ;) But yeah, the first Madison I ever knew is in HS now!

    I met an adorable baby girl today named Maxine. I had heard people were using it and liking it again, but I was even more turned off by it than I expected to be, unfortunately.

    And the newest influx of employees at work (just because they sound more like newborn babies than teenagers, haha!):

    Ana (her full name, I think, is so utterly gorgeous! Ana River@ F!ores. Isn’t it lovely?)
    Samuel (at least, I think that’s his full name)
    Lilia “Lily”
    Yonai (pronounced juh-NYE)
    Johnathan
    William “Will”
    Mia

    In general, I really love them! I feel so old, though, that teenagers have names like this which are so unlike the trendy names of my day, haha!

    @ashthedreamer, I know a young girl named Maxine. I find it kind of unfortunate too. :/ It is one of those names I want to like … but really don’t, for a few reasons. I also think she is going to get called “maxi pad” constantly in middle school.

    Lilia is so pretty! Like you, I like all of them.

    Today in the nursery we had:
    Tucker
    Aiden
    Eva
    Joseph

    Oh and I missed Jester earlier. Wow …

    And @yellowwatts, those are definitely some interesting spellings! Is the latter a cre8ive spelling for Zachariah??
