Miss World 2014

The Miss World winner was just crowned a few days ago. I happened to catch it on Tumblr I believe and the winner's name caught my eye. Her name was Rolene and that is what sparked this post. I went and looked at all of the contestants and found some pretty cool and fun names. And now we have a post about it. 



Rosetta Cartwright

  • Bahamas
  • Variant of Rosa meaning Rose
  • Latin
Although I thin of the language software at first, I think this is a cool variant of the name Rose. I believe people will get over the initial Rosetta Stone thought quickly. Roe, Rosie. and Etta are all cute nicknames. 




Leandra Gracia Caicedo

  • Colombia 
  • Lioness 
  • Greek 
Leandra is such a gorgeous, strong name. I love the meaning because lions are fierce, beautiful animals. I also like the boy name Leander a who ton and could have influence on my liking to the name. 




Gayle Sulvaran

  • Curaçao 
  • Variant of Abigail meaning my father is joy 
  • Hebrew 
Gayle is so simple and straight forward. It's kind of old lady chic. If I was to use it, it would be as a nickname for Abigail. 





Ioánna Filíppou

  • Cyprus 
  • Variant of Joanna meaning God is gracious 
  • Greek 
One word does this name not look beautiful to you?! I just love looking at it and even saying it (re-oh-ah-nah). It's filled with vowels too. 



Amina Ashraf

  • Egypt
  • Trustworthy, faithful
  • Arabic 
I love my A names, especially when it is a girl name that begins and ends with an A. The name sounds so pretty with the mee sound in the middle. It ages really well too. 



Keyla Lisbeth Bermúdez Nuñez

  • Guatemala 
  • Variant of Kayla meaning slim and fair
  • Irish 
At first glance the name looks like Kayla but I feel like people in English speaking countries will pronounce it like Key-la and not Kay-la. I think the name looks really pretty and fresh spelled Keyla. 



Edina Kulcsár

  • Hungary 
  • Wealthy 
  • English 
I was never the biggest fan of E names but in recent months I have started to really love them. Edina is another pretty name that I really like. The E makes it a little exotic and I like names that have the -ina sound. 



Koyal Rana

  • India 
I wasn't able to find information on the name Koyal except that it is definitely an Indian name. Every website had something to do with India. The way I am pronouncing it is like Royal but with a K. I think Coy would be a cute nickname. 


Dewi Liana Seriestha

  • Malaysia
  • Variant of David meaning beloved 
  • Welsh 
Dewi is really a boy name in most countries to my knowledge. I immediately think of Dewey from Malcolm in the Middle when I hear this name and can't really take it seriously on a girl. It would be really cute and different though. 



Milica Vulklis

  • Serbia 
  • Favor, grace
  • Slavonic 
Milica is such a pretty name. I have never heard it before but it really goes well with other names like Amelia and Lilika. Milly would be such a cute nickname!



Rolene Strauss

  • South Africa 
  • Free Man 
  • German 
Rolene was the winner of Miss World 2014 and the reason I started this post. Her name is so unique and different. I think it's just nice to look at. Rolly would be a cute nickname. 



Maeya Nonthawen Thongleng

  • Thailand 
I was unable to find information on the name Maeya. I still think it I really different and I pronounce it May-yuh. It could be a nice alternative to May. 



Andriana Khasanshin

  • Ukraine 
  • Variant of Andrea meaning manly, virile 
  • Greek
I love Andriana! It's so pretty and long. It's different but not crazy out there. I like that it begins and ends with an A. Andi, Andri, and Annie are all cute nicknames for it. 



Romina Fernández Sellanes

  • Uruguay 
  • Variant of Roma, a place name (Rome) 
  • Italian 
I think Romina is yet another pretty name. You can see that I think most girl names are pretty. I love Ro- names because the nickname Roe is so cute on a girl. Rome and Romy are also possibly nicknames.


I really thought it was going to be hard finding information on these names because some of this names were so different. This post was honestly one of the quickest posts I've done. One of my favorite things about this post was that I got to see names on people in different countries. 

What was everyone's favorite names? Here are the names for recap:
Rosetta
Leandra
Gayle
Ioanna
Amina
Keyla
Edina
Koyal 
Dewi
Milica
Rolene
Maeya
Andriana
Romina

My favorite has got to be Andriana with Milica in second.
