    @yellowwatts & @TwoSapphires yes Zakeriya is a trendii spelling of Zachariah. Tarsharae is pronounced almost exactly as it’s spelt – Tah-shuh-RAE. Lord knows where her mother pulled it from! Her younger brother is Preston.

    One of my former bosses had her baby today! Her husband–who I also work with–had explained the name to me before, so I was expecting it, but I’m happy to announce, anyway. Baby Arya Beckett [surname] made her debut bright and early at 2-something this morning! Beckett for Samuel Beckett, who Arya’s daddy is a huge fan of (and apparently was a big selling point in Arya’s mommy falling in love with him; I normally wouldn’t condone it, but I think the meaning behind Beckett is cute here), and Arya because he’s a huge GOT fan, and loves how strong and kick-butt Arya is in the series.

    Personally, I like Arya’s big half-sister’s name much more (Lydia!), but it definitely seems to suit them, and it’s a nice name without stealing any of my favorites, so I’m happy. :)

    2 of my friends have had babies in the last week; Milla Maree & Chase Dallas. I’m not a fan of either name to be honest!

    Today I came across a little girl named Lotus. Not a big fan.

    At kindergarten open house tonight I sat beside a lady who will have a little girl in kindergarten with my Lucy. Her daughter’s name is Aubryn. That’s a new one to me.

    I have a soft spot for the spelling Maree because I always refer to my aunt Marie as “Ree” and used to think if I were to use Marie (also my mn which is after her) I’d use that spelling. I have since changed my mind though lol
    Lotus?! no thank you.
    Aubryn is interesting, not surprising with all of the Aubree/Aubreys though

    I think I know an Aubryn (might be spelled differently) but that sounds familiar. It might have been Audryn?
    Okey is … interesting.

    Recently I’ve met a Symaria and an Amaria.

    Teenage girl at work today named Angelyn, pronounced like the word Angel, and then -LEEN. I incorrectly assumed it would be something like ANNE-jul-lynn and was corrected.

    ^That pronunciation doesn’t make any sense for that spelling!

    Actually, I could see that prn. for Angelyn. Was she Latina? I know a lot of little girls with names like Mariangelys (Mary-Angelise), Noralys (Nor-Elise), etc., etc. I don’t think it’s very logical for English, but for Hispanic-American families, it definitely would be. Then again, people try to say Emmeline and Madeline like Emma-lyn and Mad-eh-lyn, and that just drives me batty, sooo… I can sort of see where you’re coming from.

    I heard Nadia again lately, and it made me grin like an idiot. I love Nadia so much! I really need to find a spot for it on my name.

    I have a cousin who named her daughter, Ivalyn Sarah-Faye. I’m not a fan of the hyphenated name or Ivalyn. But we call her Ivy which I think is adorable.

    I work at the library on my college campus and we get all sorts of wild names in there from time to time. Classes just started so I’ve come across a few:
    Ramsey
    Kenoa
    Preslea (prn. Pres-leigh)
    Calliope

    I really love the name Calliope but hate the nn Callie.

    I real like Nadia, too. :) Ivalyn is … interesting.
    Kenoa reminds me of quinoa.

    I have heard the name Calliope on name boards a few times recently. I can’t get past the circus instrument. :/

    Ivalyn is definitely something different for my eyes!

    I used to love Remi/Remy :) I associate Landry with a surname :/
    La-a but…wait for it…”The DASH is not silent!!” -per her mother (Ladasha spelled La-a) I’ve heard/seen it all…

    Hmm, I do not like Remi for a girl. It’s such a cute boy name to me…

    I forgot this, but the other day at work, I finally encountered a Nevaeh. And THREE of my coworkers all commented on how much they dislike that name. I’m really glad to know it’s not just us name forums people who find it tacky.
