Alphabe~Thursday The Letter "H"

“H” is for Old Names

Hortense ~  French given names that comes from Latin meaning gardener.

Hyacinth ~a flower with incredibly fragrant blossoms.

Hannah~ From the Hebrew name Channah meaning "favour" or "grace"

Hazel~ English for a tree or light brown color. My grandmother’s name.

Helen ~English form of the Greek Helene, "torch" or "corposant", or possibly related to Selene the Greek goddess of the moon.

Harvey ~English From the Breton given name Haerviu, which meant "battle worthy", from haer "battle" and viu "worthy.” This was the name of a 6th-century Breton hermit who is the patron saint of the blind.

Hirum ~meaning "exalted brother.” I actually know a Hiram.

Old names.

Just to name a few.

I'm named after my paternal grandma. Her middle name was spelled Rebekah, which is pretty and "old"! Although, I do like mine better because it's "younger"! LOL (Rebecca)

Sue said...

I think Susan has become an "old" name. It means lily.


Jenny said...

I love the name Hazel... It is so pretty!

I have never heard the meaning of Jenny before...

But I am strongly considering changing it to Helen because, to me, "torch" means a warm heart and a fire-filled spirit... ((winkwink))

Thanks for linking to the letter "H"!
