names

Laura over at Quietude recently posted a list of her favorite boy and girl names. Reading over her list I thought I most post a few names of my own. Some of these are completely random and will likely never be used, but they're all names I like for one reason or another.

Boys:

Peter
William
Ransom
Kari (pro Car+y) -a really neat character out of Njal's Saga
Gideon (one of my sisters has preemptively claimed this one)

Girls:

Astra
Debra
Amaris
Wealthow (queen in Beowulf)
Natalie (duh) :)
Dorcas
Lydia



Hmmmm, maybe we should plan on having more boys than girls ;)

Quite an array of names. Very lovely, though. How do you pronounce Wealthow?

Have fun deciding!

PS I love Kari!

Wealthow is pronounced weal (as in wealth) + thow (rhymes with cow). Neither it or Kari are liable to end up as names for any of Allen's kids (you should see the way he rolls his eyes at some of my names), but I like them all the same.

I've always loved the Bible character Dorcas, and thus loved the name. But it has always met with howls of laughter when suggested as a possible daughters name (not that it would have mattered anyway---as mom to three little boys so far!!)

Have fun with your names!!
