Tell me some of your favorite names??

I think most parents want to give their children names with meaning, but in those cases where children become the vanity toys of parents, the name itself becomes a vanity plate. Names are very powerful. Identities can be built around them. They can drip meaning into a social group and be part of the rain that converts it into a community. Names can tie us to our ancestors. They can bind us to a saint. It seems to me that the loss of meaning in names has occurred because life itself has lost meaning. So, I like any name with meaning...!
