I wonder if it is Scott and Lynn, put together. I don't care for it either.

My (female) first grade teacher's name was "Kevlyn". Her dad's name was Kevin and her mum's name was "Lynn".

Ha! My son's (male) second grade teacher was Kalen. His mom was Kathy and his dad was Len.

I have a friend who is named Marcelline, after her dad, Marcel. Her brother is Dennis, named after their mom, Denise.

Isn't Ibn Arabic for "son of"?  Rashaad ibn Rafiq would be Rashaad son of Rafiq.

Meanwhile, watching Crime Channel. Suspect in a murder is a girl named "Cinnamon". I've heard of Ginger, and I went to school with two sisters named Pepper and Sage, but I've never heard of Cinnamon.

Cinnamon was the name of Barbara Bain's character in the original Mission Impossible. I also met a young lady last year whose last name was Cinnamon.

I'm having an "now I feel old" moment - there is a song from my childhood that a guy is singing about a girl named...you guessed it, "Cinnamon"!  Rock & roll - I just can't remember what decade or who the singer was....

Was this the  girl that killed her mother?  I worked about a mile away at the time and this has always haunted me.

Adding "lyn" to names drives me a bit crazy. I have a Facebook friend who wanted to name her daughter Quinn after her father, but named her Quinnlyn to "make it a girl's name". I thought Quinn was already perfectly fine for a girl?

I have another FB friend who just had a baby girl - named Brynnlyn. Oy.

Cinnamon Brown killed her stepmother- after her father- and stepmother's younger sister-  basically brainwashed her into it.

I'm thinking late 60s.  Have to admit, I think the name is cute.

My ex is heavily into genealogy, and will often give our son updates on the information he has found.  Ex really gets into it, and there are some interesting names in his family tree.

An intriguing one he recently discovered is the name Salathiel.  Evidently, it is a legitimate, Biblical masculine name.  The more I say it out loud, the more I like it.  Had I known of this name at the time we were expecting our son, I might even have considered it.  It is enough like Nathaniel or Daniel, with that -iel ending, to sound not so weird, and I happen to love Sal as a nickname for a boy, (I have a great-uncle Salvatore on my Italian side who goes by Sal.) 

Do y'all like it?  I'm not having any more children; that train left the station long ago, but I was wondering if it really is kind of a cool name, or is it too oddball for a kid of the 21st century?  The Salathiel in the family tree lived in the 1800s.

It's a super awesome name for a cat.

Googling tells me that "Salthiel" comes from the Hebrew for "I have asked of God."

A friend of mine has cousins named Cinnamon (female), Pepsi (male), and Jean-Luc (male, born in the US, no French ancestry).

I ran into someone named Perew the other day. A Google search reveals that it is a last name, so maybe it's a case of someone using a family last name as a first name. It's not horrible - just a bit odd.

I've known a Cinnamon, but for Jean-Luc, were his parents big Star Trek: The Next Generation fans, perchance? :-)

Here's the version I remember, by somebody who used the name Derek.  Explanation in the comments under the video.

That's the crime profile I was watching when I saw the name.

It's definitely got a biblical ring to it.

I probably read too much horror and fantasy, because Salathiel sounds a bit like either an angel or a demon or some kind of supernatural entity. It puts me in mind of angels like Uriel and Remiel, or demons like Agiel or Belial.

One of the students at my work is named Cinnamon Barnes.
DH wants to know if she has siblings called Honey or Hot Cross.
