Irish people always have, as you can see on the one above, kind of a saying for every name. For Faye it’s: She will see everything with the heart. Faye comes in a lot of different spellings, such as Fae, Fay, Fey, Feye. The original Fay, Morgan le Fay, was a sorceress of the Arthurian Legends. Another famous Faye is Faye Dunaway, an American actress, director, producer and screenwriter. She was known for her role in the film “Network”, which she received an Oscar for. She was also seen in “Chinatown” and “Bonnie und Clyde”. By the way, my husband and I discussed whether to call our daughter Feya. Includes the same letters as Faye, but has a completely different meaning. In Albanian, Feya means faith in the sense of religion.
Elara: The name Elara is ancient Greek. In Greek mythology Elara is a nymph, a natural goddess and a lover of Zeus. Zeus hid Elara of his jealous wife Hera deep in the earth, after he had imprisoned her, which is why Tityos is also called the son of Gaia (Gaia is the personified earth in Greek mythology). Elara died at the birth of “Tityos the giant” because of his size – yeah ouch! Therefore she is a symbol of motherly love. According to this Elara, one of the Jupiter’s masters is named. So there is also a moon named Elara. I don’t know of any celebrity named Elara, but I do know that there is a four-star hotel in Las Vegas with the name «Elara by Hilton Grand Vacations», so maybe the owners name is Elara?!
Ondine: Ondines or undines are female elementaries of the water, from the folk beliefs to mermaids. The name comes from the Latin unda, Italian onda, which is called wave; therefore the meaning of the name “wave girl”. In Portugal also in the spelling Ondina possible. Do you know the movie “Ondine” with Colin Farrell? If not, I recommend it to you, it’s a very sweet movie! So if you want to watch it, don’t read any further, because the next paragraph is going to be a spoiler (this is one of the few films where I didn’t see this end coming). In the film, Ondine is a young woman who is pulled out of the sea by a fisherman (Colin Farrell). He and his daughter believe that Ondine is a watery nymph, but in reality she is a Romanian drug smuggler named Joana.
Indigo: Color names are the most appealing and evocative oft he new generation. They have joined flower and jewel names. Indigo is a deep blue-purple dye from plants native to India. The name Indigo is striking for both girls and boys. I mean we all know a Violet, a Hazel, an Olive, maybe even a Lavender, so why not Indigo? I think it’s a cool and modern name, which fits to the present time, in which we no longer have to adhere to certain rules by giving our children their name. We can be free-spirits, and Indigo sounds for me definitely like someone who is a free-spirit. Indigo is the name of a character in the Ntozake Shange novel Sassafrass, Cypress & Indigo, and was used for his daughter by Lou DiamondPhillips (we will come back to this name on the next point!).
Nalani: Some names just drip with divinity and are too good to pass up! Nalani, pronounced nah-LAH-nee, is such a sweet baby name choice filled with great power. The origin oft he name is Hawaiian language and it means “the heavens». Nalani also means “chief,” proving girls can in fact run the world. Back to the meaning «the heavens» – OMG how beautiful it that?! I feel like it’s kind of the name Angel, but more modest, as it doesn’t jump on you right away, only if you google the meaning, you will see what a beautiful meaning it has. It’s also possible to spell the Name in other variations: Nalanie or Nalany. I haven’t found a celebrity with the name Nalani, which makes it a really rare name. I think so far this name is really only use in Hawaii or Hawaiians.
Fleur: The name Fleur is used by the French word for flower. Fleur is the French variant of the girl’s name Flora. Flora is the name of the ancient Roman goddess of spring and comes from the Latin. By the way, Flora is also a very nice name. In Albania, where my husband originally comes from, the name Vlora (spoken Flora) is widespread. It very feminine name as I think. Of course you could also name your daughter after a certain flower, like Rose, Daisy, Iris, Jasmin or Viola, but to give her just the name Fleur is equally beautiful. When I hear Fleur, I automatically think of Fleur Delacour, from Harry Potter, who later becomes Bill’s wife. There is also Fleur de Force, which is a Youtube-personality and makeup artist from England.
Felia: The name Felia is the short form of the name Ophelia, derived from the ancient Greek word “ophelus”. Ophelus means “the helping one” but there is also a Latin meaning, which is “the happy one”. So both meanings, are very different from each other but still very beautiful. What is also very beautiful about Felia, is that you can change the pronunciation depending on the spelling. With the spelling Felia, you would pronunce it with a a long drawn e. But you could also write Feliah, which would make the a long drawn. Say it out lound once, sounds beautiful! There was a Russian ballet dancer, Felia Doubrovska. After completing her studies at the Imperial Ballet School in St. Petersburg, Felia Doubrovska performed with the legendary “Ballets Russes” which made her famous.
Quila: Quila means “The ruling from the gods’ ground” -wow how beautiful, isn’t it? This name also exists in tens of spellings: Quilah, Quyla, Quylla, Quella (English), Quellah, Quilla, Quillah. In my research, I found out that there is a mountain in a wooded region of the Mexican state of Jalisco, which bears the name “Sierra de Quila”. An old mexican lady told me, that Quila is a very special name, not a lot of babies where given, because those who given the name grow to be strong, reliable, and unique. She told me, that the parents feel if the baby can meet this name and often reject the idea with this name because of that. That was so interesting that I had to put that one on the list! Do you know somebody named Quila, if yes does she justice with those characteristics?
Philin: Philin is a female first name of Greek origin and is derived from the Greek words « philein, philéo », which is meaning “the friendly one» or «the lovable one”. Everybody would love to have a name with a meaning this flattering. It is also means “love », « caress” and “kisses”. Philine, Philina, or Philia, are some different varieties you can write Philin. The male counterpart would be Philipp (which also comes in like 100 different writting versions). One of the most prominent names bearers is a figure in Goethe’s novel “Wilhelm Meister’s apprenticeship”. WHAT you have never read this??? Yeah, me neither! But hey, a little useless knowledge never hurts. After all, you now can indicate if you should see a Philin, like: “Oh exactly, your name features in this piece of writing from Goethe, right?” Let us know in the comments what you think about these names for your baby girl!
