  1. I like Kaloyan. It derives from the Greek Kaloi?ann?s, meaning “handsome John”.

  2. Love that definition!

    And that one is legit, which is rare. So many people, when defining baby names, throw in complimentary words that aren’t supposed to be there. Handsome, beautiful, enlightened, etc. Irks me to see that.

    Thanks for stopping by Maarten!

  3. At last, a list without Sophia/Sofia at the top. Wonder why. ;)

  4. Good point! Not even on the list…
