    I absolutely love this name. It’s not that common and it sounds very nice. I could see it on a tomboy.

    I’m thinking of a first and last name combination- Nava Vinter. I really like it. It has a lot of v sounds in it but I love the meaning. Nava means “beautiful” in Hebrew and Vinter is a Scandinavian last name variant of Winter. So it means “beautiful winter.”

    Boy or girl?
    Many people think of it as a boy’s name, but I like it as a girl’s name. It would be the name of an energetic redhead tomboy.

    On my mind- Katja and Benjamin. I think these names are great for siblings.

    Tennyson and Guinevere 

    I’ve been thinking these names over…I’m beginning to really like them as a sibling names. Going on a poetry theme! What do you think of Tennyson Rhys and Guinevere Adele?
    Nicknames: Tenney and Gwen.

    Adele- one of my new favorites. I love it as a middle name or a first name. It is pronounced uh-DELL, and it is German, English, Italian, and Finnish. It is a form of Adèle.

    Musical Names 

    I am officially obsessed with musical names.  Seriously, I’m discovering these names all the time.  I don’t mean names like Johann, Wolfgang, and Ludvig.  I’m a violinist so I guess that’s why I’m so into musical names.  Symphony is near the top of my girl’s list.  Symphony Rose- one of my favorite combos.  Symphony is so beautiful in my opinion.  Roses are beautiful too, so it’s the perfect combination.

    Allegra- This name is a tempo in music that is fast, and means “lively, cheerful.”  I also think this is a really beautiful name and I would put it with Giselle.  Allegra Giselle.  Perfectly elegant.

    Aria- This isn’t one of my favorites, but I still like in terms of musical names.  Aria Electra.

    Lyra- Again, this isn’t one of my favorites.  It is from the constellation shaped after Orpheus’s lyre.  Lyra Morgan.

    Viola- After the instrument, though I’m personally not a fan of violas.  I guess that’s just a violinist’s bias.  Viola Lavender, purple theme! 🙂

    Jubal- I don’t like this at all for a first name but I love it for a middle name.  Jubal was the first musician in Genesis.  Richard Jubal.

    Melody- Pretty basic, I know, so it’s not one of my favorites.  I like the nickname Mel.  Melody Annelise.

    I seem to like more musical girl’s names than boys.  Anyway, pressed for time, I’ll leave off here and post more later. 🙂

    I’m guessing that you think this is masculine, right? Wrong. It’s feminine.
    Iscah was the name of Abraham’s niece. I like this name as a middle name but not as a first name. It seems too masculine sounding, and may be hard to pronounce. It is pronounced IZ-cuh.
    Combinations: Julianna Iscah, Charlotte Iscah

    Tags: Genesis, , the first musician   


    In Genesis, Jubal was the first musician.  This is becoming one of my favorite middle names.  I don’t think it would fit well as a first name.  Combinations: Richard Jubal, Cornelius Jubal, Arthur Jubal.

    Jubal means “stream” in Hebrew.  It is pronouced JOO-buhl.

    I think this is my #1 boy name. If I had a son (and I’m no where near that now!) I would probably name him Silas. At first it came to me as a last name and I have no idea where it came from. It just popped into my head one day. Then I found out it was a first name and it’s been on my favorites ever since.
    I’m having some trouble coming up with a middle name. I’m liking Lief as a middle name. What do you think of Silas Lief?
    By the way, Silas is pronounced SIE-luhs if you didn’t know. It is a short form of Silvanus.
