Amityville is the town in that awful book someone lent me when I was 13. things come through the walls.

Not good

Oh and jaws

Hmmmm hmm not many good connotations then?

It actually means harmony/friendship.

MrsBlarney Thu 22-Sep-11 07:37:17

Yes, it would be lovely if all those American writers hadn't used that to massive ironic effect grin


it would be such a pretty name but it's been trashed. Nothing you can do!

How about

Olivia (the olive tree represents peace and harmony)
Honor (another virtue name)
Sophia (wisdom)
Columba (dove, symbol of peace and the holy spirit)
Irene (greek goddess of peace)
Chessa (Slavic name meaning peace)
Malina (Hawaiian name meaning peace)
Zulema (Arabic name meaning peace)
Serena (Latin origin, means serene, calm)
Cecilia (patron saint of music)

As the others have said, everyone will immediately think of "The Amityville Horror" a horror book and film about, IIRC, possessed children, nightmares and poltergeists etc.
