I really rather love that my parents named me Peruda. (Yes, that is my real name.) It's an ancient Hebrew name that refers to a family of descendants of Solomon''s servants who returned from exile in Babylon under Cyrus the Great.

I also know a Cymoril (from a fantasy novel ) and a girl named Shannara (from the Shannara books).


Cymoril . . . I picture a woodland-based sorceress that lives by a river. Or at least, that's my opinion of that name before I used Google.
And after googling... you see why I reacted as I did.

... and her brother Dweezil :lol: (though I believe she has dropped the "Unit" and now just goes by Moon Zappa).

There's also Zowie Bowie, who for some unknown reason later changed his name to Duncan Jones.

Rockstars & naming kids, just seems to be a terrible combination.

If I ever become a rock star, I'm naming my kid something normal like "Jim" or "Avery".

AB, If you're going to use my name, make sure your child understands the Chaldean calculation meaning of "Avery".

...Um, I'm about to show my ignorance here (believe me, I've got a lot of it to show off), but you'll have to explain that meaning to me, too. lol Only meaning of "Avery" I'm familiar with is the English name, which translates roughly to "counsel of elves".

And yes, I admit, I hijacked the name from you, because I think the name is rather lovely. :D It's also the name of one of my favorite actors.

Just wanted to add I stumbled on a "Jerkyis". Maybe that's a common name in another language and I'm ignorant, I don't know. It seems odd and made-up to me.

I couldn't find it via a prelim Google search. That has to be one of the oddest I've heard of yet.

Avery, using Chaldean calculation, adds up to 15, also known in this system as The Devil's Number. We have a certain ambitiously ruthless side to us.
