So what I'm looking for is names that sounds like this:

Skeet Johnson
Panda Jones
Magic Smith

I've just added the last name for effect. Essentially what I am asking for is words that can be used as names. So please no: Hamish, Ben, Oscar - coz they are names.Thanks so much!

Is this for a real child or a book character? If it is a real child, what kind of last name are we working with? (number of syllables, letter it starts with)

Could be both! Two syllables:  G

That makes sense now.

Are names like Harper and Archer what you are looking for or are you after more unusual names?

Do you mean names like River, Willow, Sage?

Maybe even one step further than those, picture famous skateboards, cool sports star.

Ok... Um... I'm not sure I'm understanding this right, but do you mean that you want a list of words that could be used as names but that are not actually recognised as names?

If so, then my answer is that any word could potentially meet that description and so you might as well choose a word that has significance to you or embodies a quality that you want your DS to have.
