I have a friend who named her son Jarek Leland. That’s pretty original, and I liked it a lot. She said that Jarek means spring and Leland means winter, her 2 favorite seasons.

I write fantasy, so I tend to search for (or make up) a lot of unusual but natural sounding names. First list – names I haven’t used.  Second list – names in my story.

Felicity, Peregrin, Althea, Grayson, Torin (not if you have WoW player friends, though), Piper/Pepper, Cyneswith/Kineswith, Carima, Brenna, 

Clarette, Orende, Janen, Cafen, Kiana, Emlyn/Emelin, Tavin, Waldram, Mestia, Ladicea, Maleah, Connish, Marayna, Keerda, Kande, Darasi (boy’s name from Papua New Guinea), Jonhian, Fareth, Enris, Sama, Setreh, Marisu, Marin, Aren, Tolara, Lata, Marset, Aldon, Nalia, Brennelin, Mareth, Jidena…

Of course, since I make up so many names, I want very traditional names for my kids.

I write horror and suspense…and FH read one of my longer stories, fell in love with the name of a girl who goes absolutely BSC (Lilith) and said he wants to use it if we ever have/adopt kids. HA!

I’d steer clear of any names based on ideas–Destiny, Hope, etc. Here’s a little video for your amusement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqPmPA4Vn_U (NSFW)

I am all for orginal names! Growing up with a pretty unique name myself I plan on using all unique names for my children. (My name is Janessa)

My sister has a 1 year old boy named Sade (rhymes with Jade) – not the singer!  Not a lot of people like that name but I think it’s cute.

My friends name is Jennica (Jennifer and Jessica together).  There are a lot of possibilities if you want a nickname, Jenn, Jenna, etc. Plus, I love the sound of Jennica Lee.

Smush your name and your husband’s name together. That’d be hella original.
