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.

Wait! What? It's Wednesday Already?


Nevaehtnes - this name is along the lines of the name Nevaeh, which is Heaven spelled backward. The last part of the name is sent spelled backward, so "heaven sent". I do not know how it is said.

Omolara - Benin, meaning "child born at the right time".



Rodolfo -Spanish and Italian form of the German name Rudolph, which means "famous wolf".


Avin - I'm not sure of the origin of the name for the person I met with this name. But since I do not find a separate etymology for it, I'm classifying it as a variation of Haven. It sounds similar and follows the name patterning that is current. Haven is Dutch and comes from the Old English 'haefen' which comes from the old Norse 'hofn', which means "harbor". There is Avon, which comes from the Welsh 'afon' meaning 'river'. But Avin is pronounced 'ay vin' and therefore is closer in sound and spelling to haven than Avon.
