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.

Another Name Question of the Day

This is a basic, 'get to know you' type question. What is your favorite name? And why?

My favorite is James. It's handsome, I guess. I like the sound. There was a character in a book I read as a teenager that I really identified with and so I've just always rather loved the name. The Book of James in the New Testament has some rather profound concepts. Of the Founding Fathers I always rather liked James Madison.

James Matthew is the first and middle name pair I like best. Ironically, though it's my favorite name, it hasn't always been my favorite and I just don't like it as a middle name at all. And the only nickname I really like is Jamie, though I guess you could use Jack and that's nice.
