A to Z Challenge - Love the Letter L

L - I shall start with Lee - my middle name and my uncle's name. He was my mother's eldest brother. It's from the English and means from the meadow.

No L names from the 20s or 30s for kids

2010 - boys - Liam (oh yeah - Liam Neeson or Liam Hemsworth, both yummy), Lucas, Levi (love the jeans), and Luis.
Girls - Lily (I'm guessing Modern Family), Lillian, Layla (Eric Clapton - you've got me on my knees).

Let's explore the labyrinth of L names - female first - Lachlan (gaelic) - from the land of the lochs. I'm going to have her exploring the coast due to a mysterious seafaring death.

Lajita (indian) - a truthful woman
Lupita - (Spanish) - from the valley of wolves.  too obvious if I do a werewolf story?
Lynette  (Welsh)- resembling a songbird

Boys - Leif (Scandinavian) - born at night.  But not last night............oh, he's got the full package - good looking, charming, and ready to woo any young lady in my stories. I'm putting my fingers through is blond locks

Levant (French) one who rises above.
Longfellow - a tall man. He's going to be soulful too - his heart shall be broken
Lucky -(English) a fortunate man.  There's always a Lucky in a gambling tale.

And finally - L is for Love - let's go with Lubomir (Polish ) meaning a great love.

What L names do you love?


  1. I like Liam for a boy, and Lisa or Laura for a girl.

  2. I'm quite a fan of Luca - I used to think of it as a girl's name (Suzanne Vega has a track about a girl called Luca on one of her old albums) and we now have a boy at the school where I work called Luca!

  3. Oh... and I suppose I should have said Leo - because that's my son's name!

  4. Lucky would work for a girl, too!

  5. I do like Liam quite a lot :)

    Laird and Lawrence too.

    And Lysa or Lara for a girl. :)

  6. Laila. One half of a love story, quite like Juliet from Romeo- Juliet.
