Anyone remember the super old WB (now CW) show Savannah? I was obsessed with the names of the women characters, Reese, Payton, and Lane.
https://www.behindthename.com/ is a pretty comprehensive search. It will tell you the origin of a name, meaning and it's history. However, it won't include names that have been recently made-up.
I don't like Ryder either...sounds dirty to me, but I do love me a Ryder Strong even though I am a bit too old for him....that hair. My husband also came up with "Stone". I don't know if he is joking with these names or not. I'm scared.
Nevermind. He’s 37. And this is an awful picture of him.
Omg just saw this name and had to share somewhere...Dazzalene...
@nanifrog :-(. I mean...it doesn't have my name either....because the spelling of my name (Kaela) is short for Mikaela. Kaela by itself is historically not a name apparently.
Risa is definitely a common name in Japan (it's the Japanese form of Lisa). But that's mainly because in Japanese "L" and "R" are the same character. My name (Alyssa) was Arisa when I lived there, since that's how they spell and pronounce it.
@ivyvines6 Speaking of Japanese...Mara is one of my favorite names, but it totally means penis in Japanese. I haven't been back there in 15+ years and don't know when I'll go again, but for some reason that still bothers me. Haha. What if my daughter wants to live there at some point?!
