Five-Name Friday: Quirky Girl Name Like Sesame

five name friday, girl name

You’re idly wandering through a novelty shop — aisles full of noisemakers, gross-out gifts, books about rednecks, etc. — when you happen upon a pregnant lady examining a roll of glow-in-the-dark toilet paper. She starts up a conversation, and at one point mentions her ongoing search for a baby name:

My cousin just named her daughter Sesame and I wish that I had thought of it, I love that it’s a slightly uncommon word name that sounds similar to more familiar names (e.g. Cecily, Jessamy). Now I’m looking for a similar longish, feminine, but quirky name for my daughter.

“Do you have any suggestions?”

You’re a name-lover, and you could potentially give her dozens of suggestions on the spot. But you’ve found a cool set of mustache refrigerator magnets, and you want to make your purchase and get going. So you decide to stick to five baby name suggestions.

But here’s the fun part: Instead of blurting out the first five names you come up with, you get to press a magical “pause” button, think for a bit, and then “unpause” the scenario to offer him the best five names you can think of.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you brainstorm:

  • Be independent. Decide on your five names before looking at anyone else’s five names.
  • Be sincere. Would you honestly suggest these particular baby names out loud to a stranger in public?
  • Five names only! All names beyond the first five in your comment will be either deleted or replaced with nonsense words.

Finally, here’s the request again:

My cousin just named her daughter Sesame and I wish that I had thought of it, I love that it’s a slightly uncommon word name that sounds similar to more familiar names (e.g. Cecily, Jessamy). Now I’m looking for a similar longish, feminine, but quirky name for my daughter.

Which five baby names are you going to suggest?
