  1. No, I can not help you with cool D names.
    But you did come up with some cool ones.
    And even ones I hadn't heard of.

  3. I love these! My favorite today is Daa'im. For some reason I'm drawn to names with extra vowels and apostrophes. May I ask where you are finding these?

  4. Great, unusual names. I like the name Daisy. As you would have noticed, my names are not particularly 'out there' but lovely, nevertheless :):)

  8. Da'mariya does not sound very Latin to me... or did they mean as in Latin-America?

  9. my husband's name is Darrell, but nowadays he'll get calls for D'arrell. It's all in the apostrophe

  10. I'm not sure, but as I recall, Daichi, if said with the wrong intonation can mean something kind of embarrassing. Very tricky name.

  11. I'm trying but all I can come up with is my husband's name, David, which is about as generic as you can get.

  12. I like Da-Xia. Reminds me of Jadzia, as in Jadzia Dax from Star Trek DS9.

  13. What about Damian and Demosthenes (some old Greek orator)? I especially like Dakini and Daphne. And I love your theme for A to Z!
