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.

More names I never thought of on my own

GIRLS

Marillia


BOYS

Belser

Cervis - a colonial Virginia soldier, circa 1700, so maybe this is a phonetic spelling of Service? A sort of Puritan name? Or a phonetic spelling of something else. Could Gervaise seem like this? Maybe the name was transcribed wrong, and was actually Gervis not Cervis. Could Cervis be an actual name, independent of some other origin? If so, what would it be?

Elimus

Holaway

Mangus

Mercer

Saxfield

Stapleton

Tally

Thornly
