Blanton

This was the last name of 2 kids at my school in Florida, I think they were twins.  I heard someone talking about their baby recently and thought they said "Blanton" but then later found out that wasn't the name and I heard it wrong.  I then remembered this being a last name and I think it could be usable for a first name.

Everly

I thought I had done this one a long time ago.  Think this might have gotten to popular recently to use it (I have seen it on alot of name lists too).  I made this up one night while laying in bed thinking of our grandpa's (mine and my husbands) names and trying to come up with a girly versions of both.  My grandpa's name was Everett and I came up with Everly and thought it was adorable.  I had never heard of this as a name before and fell in love with it.  I think it was maybe a year later or so I saw a celeb use it for a baby and spelled it Everleigh.  Then I Sheryl Crow used Ever for either a first or middle (not the same name but still).  Then Channing Tatum used Everly for his baby girl.  I feel that this name is so pretty that it could easily turn into the next Isabella and explode to the top 5 most used girls names.   So that makes me nervous to use it but I still have it on my list.  I also just noticed a movie that has come out called Everly starring Salma Hayek and that is her character name in the movie.  Seriously guys? Really? They couldn't come up with another name? I hope it doesn't help make the name even more popular.   It's so pretty!

Ithaca

This sounds so girly why is it a boys name?  Anyway I thought about this name when I was thinking about a name I came up with one night which was Mythica.  I love Mythica but it probably should best stay a guilty pleasure name :-(  so maybe Ithaca is more usable. I do not like the spelling of this at all but am not sure how else to spell it.  But it sounds pretty, almost magical / fantasy sounding which is very cool.

Xylina

This is Greek and I love Greek names.  Zigh-lee-nah.  This is a very pretty X name and of course could be spelled Zylina which looks pretty too.

Kiele

kee-ah-lay.   If you like flower names this might be for you, it means Gardenia Flower in Hawaiian (anyone from Hawaii correct me if I am wrong)

Bix & Bixon

This came across Nameberry this morning as the name of the day.  It reminds me of the name I last posted  Bic / Bickford.  While I was trying to think of  full name for Bic I had Bixon run through my head but didn't think of Bix for some reason.  I love it, love it, love it.  I think I secretly like X ending names for boys.  I don't care much for Knox or Maddox (only because of how popular it got).  Not a huge fan of Bronx but I somewhat like it.   I do love Rex.  I also even like Tex or Texas.  I am ok with Pax & am drawing a blank right now on others.   Brooks has the X sound at the end and I have seen it spelled with and X, that name is cute too.  But Bix, gosh I really like it.  And the full name I came up with of Bixon is cute too.
