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).

I got told about a girl in EB Games who's name was Liberty Moonbeam. Her parents must have been the biggest stoners.

On a more disturbing note, when I still worked at the grocery store I had one customer with the last name Rape. :shock: Middle age guy too. Usually we're supposed to say the customer's name ("Hello Mr. ___") but uh... no. Just no. That's when you change your last name.

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.

I knew a girl in a neighboring town with the unfortunate name of Candy Sweet. I always thought her parents should have been slapped for burdening their child with such a name. But, who knows, maybe she likes her name.

I hate to say this... but that sounds like the kind of name an actress would take if she were starring in some less-than-savory cinema, if you take my meaning.

It has that ring with me, too... now I'm off to see what it really is attached to :lol:


Edit... she's racier than I imagined lol.

I always thought it sounded like a stripper name, but I see your point.

Speaking of stripper names, you know I have to anagram one for you, Ledge:

Ginger Dell
= LegendGirl

And a stripper name for you, too, AB, that could also double as a porn star name:

Tate Bang
= Agent Bat

-- Nephele

And I'm already imagining the kind of strippers/porn stars that would have these names. My imagination is way too active today.

One of my favorite names is Dierdre, from an Irish legend. She was said to be the most beautiful woman to live and her live was filled with sorrow because of her beauty. She eventually is said to have committed suicide after her husband was killed and eventually sold to slavery due to her despair at his death. My favorite Irish legend.
