Over the weekend, I read through the giant database of Quebec baby names for 2008. Most of the names there were familiar English or French names. A few were (very long!) Native American names. Here are some that stood out:
Anakin & Anakyn (male) – Five of the former, two of the latter.
Archippe (male) – Means “horse-master” in ancient Greek. Not a name I see every day.
Awesome (male) – No pressure to live up to your name or anything.
Coatl (male) – Means “snake” in Nahuatl.
Dakota-Edison (male) – Strikes me as rather American-sounding for a Canadian name.
Dune (female) – Named for the seashore or for sci-fi?
Dung (male) – One of those names that gets lost in translation.
