I have found a Neveah .... No really

Kasenyah

Shakylah

I'm not sure how all of them are pronounced...

I've found some lovely names, I like Alba as a middle name and Finnegan. Ava Marie was pretty

I suppose kasenyah is a phonetic version of Ksenja, a slavic name. It's my friend's name and I much prefer the "real" spelling.

#3 fifi-trixibelle

Manaiah is my favourite so far along with Elijah-Shiloh.

#4 *LiMa*

Posted 20 February 2013 - 09:34 PM

Im kind of partial to kartchia lol

#5 password123

Posted 20 February 2013 - 09:37 PM

Gawd, I hope no one comments on my DD's name. Though compared to some of the names it is positively pedestrian!

#7 I'm Batman

Kartchia. Is it supposed to like Kartia?

I googled and it seems made up.

I just saw Tyreece.

This comp is an interesting look into baby names that are trendy.

Tiennah

Oh I saw Ruby Vogue which is epic

Evelyn-zinaida  What great name

I just Aaleaha and googled corrected it, that's not a good sign. It at least makes sense phonetically which is good.

Is Lyla Layla or Lila?

navkirat, I love traditional names. (It's Indian). What a cool way to expand the name lexicon in Australia

SanDee....I'm not sure what to think of that.

Some I haven't come across before (have I lived a sheltered life?):

Trindall
Iylah-Mae
Calay
Orel B (toothbrushes anyone?)
Harpah

The gallery doesn't seem to be working for me this morning, I can't scroll through the pages sad.gif.

#9 CCLady

Posted 21 February 2013 - 09:45 AM

I just saw Orel B too...

#10 I'm Batman

Posted 21 February 2013 - 09:45 AM

I hope Orel B is a troll.



#11 whooops

Posted 21 February 2013 - 10:01 AM

Sharneequah is the most interesting I have seen!


#12 password123

Posted 21 February 2013 - 10:27 AM

I thought Sharneequa only existed as a made up name designed to poke fun at certain ethnic/social groups. Learn something new every day.
I am surprised at the number of Mias around. I knew it was popular but not that popular.
The uneek spellings get me. I can't look at it for too long otherwise my brain starts to implode.
Also..why are some children posted about eleventy billion times?

#13 Bel Rowley

Posted 21 February 2013 - 10:39 AM

Some more newbies:

Keiralea
Jaiarley
Kaidah-Mae (hyphenating with Mae seems to be popular this year)
Braylen-Jayy (no, the two Ys on the end are not my typo)
Eliarnah Lavani
Lillyarna
Taelyse
Jemiyah



#14 Myrtle May Mary

Posted 21 February 2013 - 10:46 AM

I'm looking at:

Lexxis.... Um like the car? In which case, you spelt it wrong  ph34r.gif
Evannie
Clover Belle: Can I admit to thinking Clover is kinda cute?

That's it for now. The website is playing funny buggers with me.

#15 Ingrid the Swan

Posted 21 February 2013 - 11:00 AM

Haven't looked but Orel is definitely a boys name (unfortunately I used to watch Moral Orel - not recommended beyond first season) and his surname could start with B?

Last year I went through the list to find babies with names I really liked to give them an extra vote - it's all a popularity contest so I'm givibg them an extra boost even if it is just one. Maybe we should focus on the gorgeous names used as opposed to the weirdest?

#16 Bel Rowley

Posted 21 February 2013 - 11:56 AM

This Orel B was a girl Dabri!

You are right, we should focus on the positives. But the oddities are so much easier to find!

Some good interesting names:
Innes
Calista
Walt

I'm seeing lots of Autumns and Summers (and a Summah huh.gif ) - are seasons the new in thing?

Oooh oooh, a new spelling for Michaela, I thought I'd seen them all! Drumroll please....

Macayla

#17 wish*upon*a*star

Posted 21 February 2013 - 12:06 PM

I really like Clover ph34r.gif

I just can't believe how many thousands of entries there are!

#18 blenheim

Posted 21 February 2013 - 12:08 PM

Clover Belle is lovely wub.gif

The rest....my brain hurts...

Iylah-Mae


I have seen Iyla before, though not Iylah, Bel Rowley. I've seen it as a Hebrew transliteration variant of Elah, not related to Isla. I secretly prefer Iyla to Isla, but assume everyone will just think I can't spell.

Sharneequa is new to me but I have known more than one Shaniqua et.al. IRL, and that r just looks like an Aussie trying to "phoneticize" it some more, to me.

#21 Justaduck

Posted 21 February 2013 - 12:46 PM

I saw a Blair W .....first thought was Blair Witch

Jay-Cee & R-Jay. I have actually met an R-Jay before & not this one
Belladonna - Have never seen this as a name before
Alizabeth
mn of Aveh
Rydah
Jihad ....I understand that it is a cultural term but have never seen it used as a name before. Actually have come across two Jihad's in the comp
Thai
Lots of variations of Isaac
Hendrix
Dakoda
Jakobe
Emmitt
Titan
Jabrael
Mcenna
A female Bentley
Jaleena
Tea
Koreylee - Corey-Lee? Coralie? Not sure how this one would be pronounces
Treydan
Magdalena - Have never seen this used on a bub before


A lot may be common but I haven't come across them before. Also what looks like a 4yr old doing a duck face & a baby who has just spewed milk all over himself ?
Lots of Noah's



#22 Bel Rowley

Posted 21 February 2013 - 01:07 PM

I love Magdalena.

I think of Belladonna as a poisonous plant, a google search tells me it's also the name of an American porn star.

#23 ClaireSylva

Posted 21 February 2013 - 01:08 PM

Mahlie
Mystique
Jamaiyah Mahli
Kennadie
Serra

Posted 21 February 2013 - 01:14 PM

I've known baby Magdalenas. I think its pretty.

I secretly like Cherish, though I'd probably only ever even contemplate it as a MN.  ph34r.gif

#25 4kidlets

Posted 21 February 2013 - 01:35 PM

Ive seen Halo before, doesnt seem that bad to me.



some of the others dont seem that bad either - Taliesha and Jaydah, while not my style, seem fairly ordinary.
