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.

3 Girl Names for Saturday (yesterday) and 4 Boy Names for Thursday the 20th


Caffreina - an invented name. Still, I think a name like Katharina might sound like this in certain parts of the country like North Carolina.

Hettie - a nickname for names like Harriet and Henrietta.

Just what I picture a little Ilaria might look like.

Ilaria - Italian, from the Latin "hilarius" meaning "cheerful". Hillary is an English version of the name.


Dagobert - Frankish, from "dag" meaning "day" and "bert" meaning "bright". I really love that, "day bright".

Ebardo -according to this is an Aragonese form of Edward, which comes from Anglo Saxon "ead" meaning "wealth" and "weard" meaning "guard".

Ferno -

Gravener - a form of Grosvenor, which is an English surname derived from the French Le Grand Veneur, meaning "the great huntsman".
