So I got the idea for this blog post from Stephanie over at anastasiaruby. Go Check out her video here. First I will tell you the names from her video I liked. For girls I liked Sultana, Delphine, Sonata, Eilidh, Elodie, Coralie, and Rushlee. For the boys I liked Keston, Storm, Kaio with the nickname Kai, Collis, Soren, Tarlan, and Lincoln. So now let’s go onto my names.

Boys
  1. Holder- This name is for Holder da Silva. He is playing for Guinea Bissau, and is doing the Men’s 100m. Holder means one who has a beautiful voice in English. I like Holder because it ends in –er and is  a great alternative to Holden.
  2. Kerson- This name is for Kerson Hadley. He is playing for the Federated states of Micronesia and doing the 50m freestyle. Kerson is a variant of Kerson in Indonesian. I love K names and this one is so cool. I can it going with the other son names like Carson, and Mason.
  3. Tanel- This name is for Tanel Laanmae. He is playing for Estonia and doing the javelin Throw. Tanel means God is my judge in German. I really like Tanel. It sounds so much like Tanner to me.
  4. Andrey- This name is for Andrey Quintero. He is playing for Colombia and is sailing. Andrey means masculine, brave in Russian. I like Andrey because it is not like the popular name Andrew but still has the same feel.
  5. Artem- This name is for Artem Udachyn. He is playing for Ukraine and dog the +150kg. Artem means healthy, vigorous in Russian. I’m not really sure why but I like this name.
  6. Rustam- This name is for Rustam Ukumanov. He is playing for Kazakhstan and doing water polo. Rustam means tall; strong in Persian. I really like Rustam because you can use the nickname Rush with it.
  7. Aleksey- This anme is for Aleksey Zagorny, he is playing for Russian Fedeation and doing the hammer throw. Aleksey means protector of men in Greek. I think this is a cool masculine name.

  9. Darvin- This name is for Darvin Edwards. He is playing for Saint Lucia and doing the high jump. Darvin is an English name that is either a blend of Daryl and Marvin or a variant of Darwin. I like the sound of this name.
  10. Abdihakem- This name is for Abdirahman Abdirahman. He is playing for the USA and doing marathon. Abdirahman means servant of the merciful in Arabic. I put this name on the list because I though it was a very unusual name.
