        Thanks Liz! It's super challenging to compile these since I'm not a native speaker. Hoping others who are might contribute some feedback or corrections if any. Many of these names are so beautiful.

        This is an interesting dictionary of the meanings behind the names. A great list for reference and for inspiration. These lists would be useful for writers inventing names for characters in their books.
