I found 4 interesting names that I’d never heard before, and was curious to see what other people would think of them.
Again, this book is set in ‘the future’ (I say that because it begins at a new era after the initial downfall of the world), so these names are kind of out there, but not horrible IMO.
Which do you like best, and why?
My favorite is Feyn. It sounds close to Fern, but not too much so- it’s unique without being totally weird.

@AcheneMalefic: I like Avra and Saric. Feyn would always sound like feign to me, as in faking. And Rom — well, like a CD Rom. I don’t hate any of them, but I like Avra and Saric.

:/ I love unique names but I just didnt like any of these, sorry
names I do love that are “interesting” though are some of my choices for our future children – Lakyn (boy) Mikaha (girl) Rhett (boy) Neiah (girl)

I agree with PP, I like Avra and Saric

I am not into unique names at all, so I picked the one closest to a common name — Avra.

I like Avra. But the others- not so much.

I guess I like more traditional names… these sound like they are of some kind of northern european/scandinavian/celtic origin… where’d you find them?

@AcheneMalefic: Honestly, I think they’re all perfectly awful. I really feel bad for kids that get these kind of tendy, trying-to-be-original names.
Just yesterday I read a newspaper article about a girl named Iamunique. I have no idea how you would pronouce it but I do know that’s just…really unfortunate.

I like Avra but it made me immediately sing “Avra Avra-cadavra Avra-cadavra.”

Reminds me of the names in Game of Thrones!

the problem with “feyn” for me it’s that it’s like “feign” which means fake

Not a crazy fan of any of them, sorry! They sound like something out of the Game of Thrones or Hunger Games.

Avra is the only one I would ever even consider for a baby. It sounds the least “out there” and I think it could grow on me. Saric is ok but sounds too fantasty-like to me. I’m assuming it’s pronounced somewhat like Eric?
The others don’t do it for me at all.

@Zhabeego: Haha, that’s hilarious. Darling Husband and I prefer to stick to names that are easily pronounceable and known, if not super common (Kathryn for girl, Logan for boy, for example). When I first saw the names in the book, I do admit that I disliked them.
