Collecting Names

Posted in reading, writing at 10:50 am by elizabethcaulfieldfelt

I’m collecting names.  I have two perfect names so far, and I’d love to get more.  The two I have are both baseball players:

Felipe Lopez 

Aramis Ramirez

Aren’t they great?  The assonance and alliteration and overall rhythm of each is spectacular.  If you know of any other great names, post them here!

    What about Samantha Mathis?

  2. Julie Slater said,

    Bunny Blalock…it makes me smile.

  3. Kristina Zack said,

    One of my daughters has a friend named Alana Kualapai (pronounced Koala-pie). Prettiest name I’ve ever heard.

  4. Ben Sobieck said,

    Atlas Soloman. I always thought it was a cool name.

  5. Carl said,

    Hose Humanez (Jose Jumanez?)

  6. I found another: Moab-Dib, from Frank Herbert’s Dune

    Toxin Shinawat is my phonetic spelling of the former Prime Minister of Thailand, (actually spelled in English Thaksin Shinawatra). Thailand may be a mess politically, but their names–especially this one–are so melodic; I love the way it rolls off the tongue.
