Hannelore and Erling.  Both male, if I remember correctly.  Very striking names!

The only Hannelore I know is a comic character, who is female. I do like the name though.

Today I ran across Alyvia, Brynley and Mickensy - all members of the same family.

Hannelore is German and usually a girl's name.  Erling is a Nordic boy's name.  I like both, and I agree:  very striking!

Ooh, I like Hannelore, it's similar to the increasingly popular Hannah, but different, and a little softer, IMO. I was never fond of the name Hannah, as I always think of the song, Hard-Hearted Hannah.

I was browsing Pinterest and saw a cute idea for a dress up corner. The comment on the pin was "need for Dafne's roon"

Dafne

It's the Spanish- and thus legitimate- form of Daphne.

There's an Afrikaans version of that name "Hannalee" which I quite like.

Hannalee reminds me more of a magical place in the Puff the Magic Dragon song.

And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honnah Lee .."

I actually had to google the lyrics to Puff the Magic Dragon this morning, because of the same thing...

A couple of hundred pages ago, I posted about Chloe who insisted it was pronounced "shy-low. I saw a legal notice in the local paper, she changed her name to Shiloh.
I've always liked the name Chloe but hey I guess she didn't!

It took a great deal of squinting to get 'shy-low' from Chloe!

We had a student named Chervantes.  At first I thought her parents had misspelled the author of Don Quixote - you know Cervantes.  Nope.  Her name is pronounced Shah-VON-tay.  Ooooookay.

We had another student whose first name was Truly.  Her last name?  Chance.  I wish I was making that up.

Heh...I just posted on FB last night that I received a little toad as a wildlife rehab case who'd arrived in a shipment from Florida. The destination of the shipment was the Truly Nolen company, which is a well known (in some areas of the US) pest-control company. The company was named after its founder.

The origin of the shipment was the Really Innovations company, which was founded by Really Nolen, Truly's brother.

There is a female family member named Sincere Leigh.
