Just came across this blog and the names are amazing!! Especially like Anselo, Starlina, Greenleaf, Marbeleni, Northalion.

Also like the Victorian gothic names - Arphaxad, Clarimond, Vesperina.

Any stand out for you?

Ooh, long lost rarities. Kind of wish I could rename my children now!

Not sure Bobum would pass the MN High Court Judge test! grin Fluenzi and Froniga might work for twins?

Anselo is nice, I like that.

My son’s name is on the ‘Victorian Gothic’ list grin

lucysnowe Thu 30-Nov-17 13:13:01

Is it Mycroft, Sum? smile

Froniga is nice but pronounciation might be problematic!!

Wow, this is so interesting!

Greenleaf is lovely. I quite like Fennix for a boy, too.

Perhaps not Fluenzi or Wacka, though.

I LOVE Greenleaf. A lot of them seem to have a kind of Tolkien/Gaiman otherwordly kind of vibe.

SumAndSubstance Thu 30-Nov-17 13:54:57

Ha, no, not Mycroft! I don’t think it’s quite as niche as that, but maybe I am deluded- we certainly weren’t going for Victorian Gothic grin

I love Clarimond.

lucysnowe Thu 30-Nov-17 18:25:18

It's weird as I always thought Mycroft was a made up name. Sherlock too. But the pre-raphealites were a bit before Sherlock Holmes?

Clarimond is lovely!

This is really interesting. I know a few Romany children with unusual names not dissimilar to some of these.

Wistan and Merewen are great. If I ever write a novel...

SylviaTietjens Fri 01-Dec-17 21:10:38

Ooh my ds is a Victorian Gothic too apparently. Are you my dh sum?

SumAndSubstance Sat 02-Dec-17 22:04:21

Haha, I'm pretty sure I'm not your DH, Sylvia, unless you are mine wink

I feel a bit sorry for poor "Repentence".

FizzyGreenWater Sun 03-Dec-17 07:42:03

Lol at Bobum and Wacka. Those poor twins grin

Ooh they are great. I know an older gypsy called Shadrach, and he’s from Worcestershire - I wonder if he’s related?

(And I know a few names on the Gothic list too, maybe they are coming back in?)

Fluenzi and Froniga

Fluenzi sounds a little infectious to me - and Froniga is too close to Frogmella, grin but some of the others are rather lovely.

Most of these names would be wonderful for cats . . . <disappointed that I have so many names to choose from, and no kittens to give them to>

TossDaily Sun 03-Dec-17 09:06:37

Endelyn is lovely.

FizzyGreenWater Sun 03-Dec-17 09:07:48

Can honestly say that this is the first baby name thread I've seen where 'Balonz' looks perfectly in step with the times grin

lucysnowe Sun 03-Dec-17 09:12:10

Haha I did wonder if Balonz was on one of the lists.

They do have a lovely quasi-fantasy feel to them don't they!

I also like Studivares (Stud for short) and Stari.

Thank you for posting that so interesting. So many beautiful and unusual names. If DD ever gets another hamster I will want it to be Nipkin!
