What catches your eye? I'm fond of Aurelien, Selahattin, Taulant, Maialen, Nandelle and Persefoni. How retro-cool is Nandelle?


  1. Agreed on Calo - why not?

    What an interesting, phonetic way to spell Persephone - I guess even the Greeks mispronounce it? Either that or her parents are into 'creative spelling.'

  2. Hi there--thanks so much for following my names blog! I really need to update it more. You have a nice blog, too--the design is really pretty, and the content is great. I totally agree with you about Gavriella. I also like Liljana.
