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.

45 Names

So far you have learned 1,744 new names on my blog this year. To reach our goal of learning 2,014 names this year we still need to learn another 270 names over the next week. 45 names each day should do the trick.
