If you leave one or more blank - your search will simply not be filtered by that criteria.

Meaning contains:

This is a "first name database/search" thingie. Its uses are nearly endless.
Actually, they're quite finite - Here are some examples:

Currently the database over 11,000 primary name entries, and about 30,000 variations.


When searching by meaning, remember to try synonyms if you can't find what you're looking for. For instance, if you want a name that means "beautiful" or "noble", don't forget to try "lovely" and "highborn" or even "queen". Also, think phonetically. If you can't find the name Lena, try Lina or Leena.
