Oh random baby names, the strangest way to choose a name. It's like choosing a vacation by putting your finger on a spinning globe - still, it is fun to see what pops up each week. Baby boy name: Ariel; In Hebrew, one of the names for God. Baby girl name: Offa; Offa was the king of Mercia, who issued the first Anglo-Saxon coinage. Ariel is currently more common for girls I believe. At least in America. I like the name Ariel because The Tempest is one of my favorite works by Shakespeare, and Ariel is the spirit who serves Prospero in that play. While I love the play though, I doubt I'd name a baby boy or girl Ariel. Now it has too much singing mermaid association. I'm not even sure where to start with the name Offa. Have you ever heard this? I know I haven't. I'm thinking that it's not my kind of name. What do you think of the random baby names this week? Keepers? Or will you keep looking?
