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.

6 New Names

We've had a bit of a break in the month of May. So far I've introduced you to 800 names. That leaves 1214 names left to learn this year. Unless I'm doing my math wrong, that means you need to learn 5 to 6 names each day for the rest of the year.

Here are 6 for today

GIRLS

Henny

Kendallynn

Olithia- This is probably a variant spelling of Alethea, which derives from the Greek word 'aletheia' meaning 'truth'.



NOT SURE WHICH GENDER

Pollard

Rafa

Shanika
