According to an article published in late January by Moldovan news site Publika TV, the most popular baby names in Moldova in 2016 were
Sofia and David.
The article was hard to interpret, but here’s my guess at Moldova’s top girl names and top boy names of 2016:
4. Artiom (…which is based on the name of Greek goddess Artemis)
5. Ion (…looks molecular, but it’s actually a form of John)
The top names in
2014 were Sofia and Maxim.

Boston’s Central Burying Ground was established in 1756, so it’s newer than the other Boston cemeteries I’ve blogged about (
King’s Chapel, Granary, and Copp’s Hill). Nevertheless, it still contains some pretty interesting names:
A: Aderline, Alford, Alona, Alpheus, Alsendorf, Annjulett, Antice, Anstice, Arodi, Artemis, Asadel
B: Barstow, Barzillia, Belcher, Benaset
C: Calista, Christeena, Clarena, Clarentine, Cumming
E: Ede, Elbridge, Elhanah, Eliakim, Emely
F: Fletcher, Freelove
G: Giles, Gilman, Gustavus
H: Hannahretta, Hawkes, Hepzibah, Hermione, Hezekiah, Hitty
I: Ichabod, Ignatius, Iphigenia
J: Jaazaniah, Jennet
L: Lendall, Llewlwyn, Loms, Lot, Lyman
M: Manasseh, Mansfred, Marayanna, Marston, Mayday, Mehitable, Micajah, Milla, Mindwell, Minerva
N: Nabby, Nahum
P: Pamelia, Percival, Phebee, Philander, Pliny
R: Rodolth, Rosalinda, Rosamund, Ruhamah
S: Sally, Salome, Seiba, Shubael, Shubel, Sibley, Silence, Silvanus, Sophronia, Sukey, Sylvanus
T: Tamer, Ternon, Theophilus, Tristam, Tryphena
