Vince Vaughn

Vince Vaughn

Vaughn is a Welsh name meaning “little” or “small”.  It can also be used as a substitute for the term Junior.  Vaughn is more common as a surname than a given name.  Vaughn is currently #857 for boys right now in the United States.

Similar names that carry a similar feel to Vaughn:
Vance, Vale, Van, Vine, Sean, John, and Thane.

I picture a boy named Vaughn to be quiet, aloof, tidy, and very good with numbers. How do you picture a Vaughn?

Eilidh Child

Eilidh Child

Eilidh is a sweet Scottish name meaning “sun”, “bright”, and “shining”.  The pronunciation of this name (ay-lee) could be difficult for those who are unfamiliar with this name. It has similar roots to names such as Helen and Eleanor which it may be derived from.

Ayla, Eisley, Aoife, Ansley, Lily, Hailey, and Kailey.

I can envision the name Eilidh on a girl with a kind heart, strong wit, and a love of adventure. How would you picture an Eilidh?
