Paeleigh
There are plenty of name lovers out there who are probably shuddering a little at this one. It looks invented; it looks like a creative spelling. And maybe it is. But I saw this one on TV recently (it was the name of a real estate agent on the show ' House ...

Boys Birth Announcements
During my pregnancy I was taking a bit of a break from blogging (a.k.a. sleeping and playing a lot of Candy Crush). But this doesn't mean that I'd lost interest in names. In fact, part of the great thing about giving birth is that I'm suddenly completely im...

Post Apocalyptic Naming
Survival is tough in AMC's ' The Walking Dead ' Recently I had a
really strange dream. I know a lot of boring conversations start this
way - but stick with me, because I promise it’s name related! The world had just
gone through a zombie apocalypse (proving...

Oviri
I found this one when watching ' Ellen ' the other day. As Ellen often does, she was surprising a deserving viewer with a present after a woman's daughter - named Oviri - had written to Ellen. It struck me as an exotic sounding (pronounced oh-VEER-ee) and q...

Friendly Happ-"BY" Names
There are a few names ending in BY that I quite like, so I thought I'd make a list of them. I found there's actually quite a few more names ending in BY than I realised! And I also found that they seem to fall mainly into one of two different categories. Th...

Celestina
Celestina - she's strong yet feminine and lacy, a beautiful name inspired by the night sky. I came across Celestina as a 'contestant' on a food network show today, and wondered why I haven't been hearing more about this name lately. I say this because she s...

forgotten about it. But one mention and I remembered how lovely I

Was searching for a name meaning for our daughter Serenity when I came across your blog, which I thought was fantastic. You were spot on that we had named our daughter from the scifi show Firefly.. Mainly to give her a link to her brothers name, which is Telemachus. Telemachus is a Greek Mythology character but also a character from the scifi show Andromeda. As you can tell I married a man that is not Greek but a Geek! My son is 6 and is very proud of his name.. Whereas his sister is only 6 months and not living up to being peaceful and calm just yet ;)

Introduction
Hi, I'm Brooke. If you read my blog Baby Name Pondering, you may also know me as Blue Juniper. I love "bad" reality TV, horror movies (especially Zombie movies), sci-fi and fantasy, romance, puzzles (jigsaws, sudoku, crosswords - you name it) and unusual names :) When I have some spare time I also like to do a bit of painting. I love writing my blog, and you can also see occasionally as a guest blogger on Nameberry!  Feel free to drop me a line if you see a name you think is rare and wonderful and you might see it on my blog :)
