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.

Irish castle of the O'Neills
Thurl - Irish, meaning "from the strong fortress" according to babynamespedia.

The Archangel Uriel
Uriel - Hebrew, derived either from roots meaning "fire of God" or else "light of God". This is the name of 'an angel of fire' in Jewish tradition, one of the archangels.
