Every Monday we will post an entry that hasn’t yet been published with a view towards harnessing the collective onomastic power of the internet. If you have any thoughts about the name’s origin, other variants it might be related to, other examples of its use, etc., please share them in the comments! If you wish to browse other Mystery Monday names, there is an index.
Last week we had a name that was so far removed from any name we’ve ever seen before. This week we have the opposite: A name that feels like you should know what it is, but which you just can’t pin down. Have you ever come across this name before? Do you recognize its origin?
