On to the Ls

Thursday, April 14, 2016

We're almost halfway through the Challenge and today, we have a sampling of names starting with L.

Laciana      Beautiful one, Italian
Laella         Elf, origin – French, English
Leakiki       Ocean waves – origin – Polynesian

Lanz           Knight, A form of Lance, origin – French/Italian
Leander     Like a lion, origin – Greek
Leib            Lion roaring, origin – Yiddish

So hit me with some L names. 


  1. I too like Laciana. You don't hear the name Lance very often; at least I haven't in years; did know someone when I was growing up with that name.


  2. I have a character I love and I've named her Lula! Her real name's Lucia, but that didn't give her the "attitude" I wanted. I like names that start with L. They're melodious.

  3. I like the name Laella. Now I want to use it.

  4. I've never heard of any of them, but I do like Lanz...

    How has the challenge been going for you so far? Are you meeting your goals of posting and hopping to other blogs? M= 1/2 way point!
    My blog's giveaway is still going! I'm encouraging everyone to visit more stops.
    Those are some fantastic L names!! Thanks so much.
    I can hardly wait to see what you come with for X.

  6. Most of the "L" names I come across in my genealogy research are simple ones like Liza, Lucy and Lillian. Lupita has been one of my favorite names.

  7. Laciana is beautiful. I may have to use that somewhere.

  8. One of my favorite names, fairly common in the VI, is Leona. It just sort of rolls around and falls out of the mouth like a small waterfall tumbling over rocks, like gentle waves lapping on the shore. All those lovely vowels.

  9. I wonder if Leakiki is shortened to Leak? Hope not. LOL


Don't be shy, I'd love to hear what you think.
