  1. Oh, Haven is so much better than Heaven and Nevaeh (and heaven spelled backwards spelled wrong lol).

    I do love Lotus in the middle spot, along with other rare nature names like Nightingale and Ravine.

    1. Yeah it is. I was a little surprised to see it for boys.

      I am starting to like Lotus more than I use to. I LOVE Ravine! I think Rave is such a cool nickname for Ravine.

  2. Hobson was the name (surname) of the nanny in the movie Arthur. I believe it was the name of the butler in the original as well. I think Hobson is a very cute option if you like names with a surname-y feel. Hobs would be an adorable nickname.

    I've never heard of Dewey for a girl, interesting...

    I'm curious about the pronunciation of Luciel, would it be Lucy-ELL?

    1. Really? I didn't know that! I think Hobson seems to fix in with the other popular names a little.

      I know! Dewey is a boy name to me if someone is ever going to use it.

      At first I thought maybe it was an alternate spelling for Luciel but maybe it isn't? I kind of like the pronunciation Lucy-Ell or Lucy-Elle.
