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.

Falling Behind

Oops! I seem to be falling behind on this series of posts. I will do my best to keep them up, though presently I have things keeping me VERY busy.


GIRLS

Biene - Irish, possibly connected to the Indo-European root word for 'bee'. Another possibility is that it means "melodious" or "sweetness" and is pronounced 'ben yeh'

Yarleni - I've also seen Jarleni. They have both been Spanish-speaking, but my guess is that this is the Spanish version of Jarlene, a feminine form of Jarl, which means 'earl', coming from Norse.

Vina - Not sure if this is a nickname for Lavinia (or Lavina)



BOYS

Aeldwine

Ennion

Fayette - probably given in honor of the Marquis de Lafayette since the boy I came across this for had been born during the American Revolution, and was later a 'fifer' in the army.
