In 2014 I featured a series of blog posts introducing you to 2,014 names. For the most part they were names that were brand new to me as well. Some names may be more familiar but I found the meaning or origin or some other aspect of the name made it worthy of inclusion here. You may love some of the names, you may hate some, but hopefully you enjoy learning about all of them.

Salathiel - Greek variant of the Hebrew name Shealtiel. This name means "I asked El" (referring to the child being named as the thing asked for). El means God.

Thelonius - Behind the Name lists the meaning as "ruler of the people" suggesting it is the Latin form of Tielo, a German nickname for people with names like Dietrich.
