A long shot I know but does anyone know any Albanian names. I've heard a few but they either sound awful or have really odd spellings.

Please keep names coming. We are expecting a boy and can only find girls names that I like. Don't want it to be too different but must be Albanian/Kosovan

Considering baby is now five, I suspect she's sorted it

Other Albanian boy's names I'm aware of that I think are ok:
Elvis (could be cute!)
Arban
Arian

My nephew is half albanian and is called Adrian (add-ree-an). It was a bit of a compromise for my Dsis at the time with the inevitable mispronunciation of aid-ree-an
but a well known footballer has made it a more familiar name over here in the last few yrs.
DN has always be known as Adi. My Dsis made clear to the school that his 'name to be known by' is Adi and there has never been a problem with this.

I like Alban

RustyBear Fri 25-Jan-13 23:32:22

I rather like Alban - familiar here as a saint's name and the town of course. Not common but not outrageously strange, nn's could be Al, Ali or Albie.

ellangirl Mon 18-Jul-11 08:16:50

Aliana (f) and Tarin (m)

Taught a delightful girl from Albania named Mirela. Her brother was Urim, meaning dream.

acsec Sun 17-Jul-11 23:01:09

I know an Albanian girl called Ambra

ambkad Sun 17-Jul-11 22:59:15

freerangeeggs i read somewhere that Albania and China had strong links due to their communist regimes, but that would only explain song min jin!

for boys names, the only ones I can remember from when I went are Aslan (you already have), Leonidas (shortened to Loni) and Genci (hard g, soft c). I met loads more people, terrible memory though

freerangeeggs Sat 09-Jul-11 21:22:00

Flutura for a girl. Apparently it means 'butterfly' - how pretty is that??

Luljeta, 'flower of life'

Vera, 'summer'

For a boy:

Alban
Skender (this is cool IMO)
Afrim

I just found a really weird website listing 'westlife', 'song min jin' and '0876871078' amongst the top 100 Albanian names confused

Behind the Name has quite a few listed and is pretty reliable. Just google 'behind the name'

Beachedbabe Sat 09-Jul-11 19:42:26

Besian (Bess e ann)

gorionine Sat 09-Jul-11 19:40:18

The only Albanian I met was called Julian

Thanks! It's definately boys names that are proving harder!
