GIRLS

Helisson - Greek, the name of a town in Arcadia (in Greece), it was near the source of the river Helisson (nowadays called Elissonas). This river is a tributary of the Alfeios. The town was founded by Helisson, a son of Lycaon (so technically, Helisson is a masculine name, I just like the looks and sounds of it for a girl more). No one knows exactly where the town is anymore. It was abandoned around 371 BC, though there was still the ruins of a statue of the god Poseidon in the 2nd century AD.

Apparently the name is still in use as a boy name. It is pronounced 'HEL ih son'.

Ia - Greek, meaning 'violet flowers'.

Jacquelle


BOYS

Kaaleppi - Finnish form of the name Kalle, which can be used as a nickname for Karl or for Kaleva. Kaleva is a name from Finnish myth. It 'might' come from the Lithuanian 'kalvis' meaning 'smith' or the Estonian 'kalev' meaning 'red cloth'.
