  1. This name is so cute! I’ve been following your blog for a while now and really like it, you research the names very well. I was wondering if you do requests; could you look into the names Mouzayan and Kerensa? My friend’s name is Mouzayan (MAH-zih-ahn) and doesn’t know the meaning so I don’t know if you would know where to research it but I think it’s middle eastern, and I was just curious about the other name, which is Cornish. Thank you for keeping up with this site and have a nice day 🙂
