  1. Lovely and interesting post. I, too, have loved names and their meanings since I was a small child. I found your blog via Waltzing around Matilda. I've found a few new names I'm intrigued my - Freema and Maryweld.

    My name is Susan Elisabeth (yes with an S). When I was 4 I wanted to change my name to Aurora Hawaii. My parents were not amused by desire to change my name.

    I look forward to reading more of your blog.

    1. Thank you! Maryweld is a name I've been interested by for many years, especially after learning the meaning, "Mary of the woods". Freema is also really beautiful. I can't find any info on it, aside from Freema Agyeman, whose real name is Frema. She is of Iranian and Ghanaian parentage.

  2. I've devoured name books over the years. Still enchanted to find new (to me) and interesting names.
