Baby Names....want to have some fun?

We are in the proccess of looking at baby names for our new little one due in May.
Now, we tend to like unusual names as some of you may have guessed, but we still have some criteria for choosing names that we have kept to each time  we make a short list.

I thought it might be fun to ask for some ideas from you all.

Of course you have nothing better to do but I like doing this for other people and perhaps you might too.

Here are the critiria:
♥ For a christian name boy or girl~
It must be 2 syllables
End with an N
Be of: English, Irish, Celtic, Old English, Welsh or Scottish origin
Must be uncommon - not something you have heard a lot of (for me I must not have heard anyone use it before)

♥ For a second name~
The only criteria is that it is once again, uncommon and of course sound nice with the first name

To help you here are our children's full names:
Kynan Blair
Braedon Curtis
Autumn Adara
Eden Avril
Saxon Wallace
Vellvin Faine
Rogan Parrish
Moran Paige
Myffwyn Verity
Corbyn Ryder
Arwen Finvarra Perpetua

Now I know some of these are more popular now and I have heard some of them recently but when we named each of our children we had never heard of the names before!


Blessings to you and your homes,

My family were really keen on Aragon last night, very keen. We think it would suit your family well:)

Just came across the name, Ronan. May be too similar to Rogan though?

I've really enjoyed following your blog and have admired your unique naming style!
I love names, their histories and meanings. Here are some names from my own favorite's list as well a few I found at (my favorite name sight).

Boys: Ciaran (like Kieran, my favorite boy's name!), Caspian (Narnia inspired!), Declan, Eamon, Einion, Emlyn, Gawain, Mostyn, Owain (like Owen but it's the old Welsh smelling), Selwyn, Jolyon, Swithin, Taliesin, Tiernan, Colin, Cailean, Eoghan, Tyron, Griffin, Tristan, Drystan, Fillin, Fintan, Nolan, Oisin, Seanan (pronounced shawn-an), Torin, Doran, Faolan, Hopkin, Josslyn, Drustan, Celyn.

Girls: Siwan, Aderyn, Bronwen, Taryn, Imogen, Seren, Tristen, Keagan (not just for boys), Fallon, Farran, Liadan, Aislin, Bevin, Dorian, Eireen, Caron (Welsh, means "love"), Adelyn, Avelin, Mabyn, Tegan, Esslyn.
Another feminine Welsh name I really love is Delyth which means "pretty". Unfortunately it doesn't end in N.

I'm sorry I got a bit carried away. I can't wait to find out what you're going to name this sweet baby! :)

I had a penpall from Ireland, her name was Fiona...but that doesn't end in N.....Would you be opposed to a hypenated name?

I have also been wondering for a long time how to pronounce Myffwyn name? (Mifwin?)short or long I in the beginning?

Oh I remember a name I liked one time it was Aiden. But that is more popular nowadays...still nice.

Thank you for joining in the fun here. I have really enjoyed looking at the names. Some we have had on the 'short list' for a while and keep checking out each time.

for Josette, Myfwyn is pronounced
Miff (short I) as in tiff and wyn as in win (short I for the y)

Opps, No Rox I didn't get the Irish saint site
