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.

Sunday's Set of Names


Alfaretta -one possibility is listed in a Wikipedia article on the town of Alpharetta, Georgia, which was named for a fictitious Indian girl named Alfarata. The article also considers the Greek letter alpha a possible source for the name. Another possibility is a nickname or endearment for the name Alva or Alba or even Elva.
