Which of the above names do you like best? Are there any you don’t like at all?
*Dionis’s name is evidently a truncated form of Dionysia, which derives from Dionysius, which originally referred to a devotee of the Greek god Dionysos. The names Dennis and Denise are also derivatives of Dionysius.
**Nantucket’s Oldest House, also called the Jethro Coffin House, was built in 1686 as a wedding gift for Jethro Coffin.
The ten semi-finalists of the 2008 Miss Universe contest (held several days ago in Vietnam) had a decent mix of names: Claudia, Claudia (again), Crystle, Dayana, Elisa, Laura, Marianne, Taliana, Vera and Zana.
If I had done the judging, though, the list would have looked more like:
Alfina – Miss Kazakstan
Dionysia – Miss Greece
Gavintra – Miss Thailand
Gvantsa – Miss Georgia
Madina – Miss Germany
Putri – Miss Indonesia
Satu – Miss Finland
Shunit – Miss Israel
Snjezana – Miss Croatia
Taliana – Miss Colombia
Who cares about swimsuits and evening gowns when there are such interesting names to pick from? :)
