Namesmith: Cephanadra/Zephanadra

I love Spanish names, French names, Italian, Greek, and of course Wuzyburian- the names I put together as a Namesmith. 😉 So, when you find it hard to pick a name for your child, you can always tell me the child’s story and I’ll coin a Wuzyburian name for you.
A name means virtually whatever you label it to mean. Some names however have only one meaning, some sound like another name, and some names basically inspire you.

The tenth Wuzyburian name I’m presenting here is suitable for a Prince or Princess. It is CEPHANADRA
– Cephanadra: Coined from “Cephas” (in Hebrew meaning “Rock,” “Stone”) and “Nadra” (a variant of Nadira in Arabic, meaning “Precious,” “scarce”). I’d say this means “Precious rock/stone.” You can help me define it better!
I’ll suggest a variant of the name, “ZEPHANADRA” for a boy (and Cephanadra for a girl). Zephanadra is coined from “Zephan” (a variant of Zephaniah in Hebrew meaning “hidden by God”) and “Nadra” (“Precious” in Arabic)… And the meaning.. “Hidden by God”, “precious”, lol..u can put one and two together, say, preciously hidden by God, or “I’m precious because I’m hidden by God”..hmm, help me define it better!!

Short form: Cepha (Zepha); Ceph (Zeph); Nadra; Phana;
Nick form: Phanny; Phy;

Angry mood: NADRA!!

– Native Name Suggestion for a Princess (Greek): CLEONEDORA.

The ninth Wuzyburian name I’m presenting here is suitable for a future male leader. It is a mixture of two Nigerian languages (Oegworok- S/Kaduna and Hausa) and a little alteration in its written form using an Igbo format of vowel removal (I find It hard to explain myself at this point..lol). The name is NENADI-N’MIJI.
– Nenadi N’miji: Coined from “Nenadi” (in Oegworok which connotes “People will see”) and “N’miji” (an altered way of saying “the boy” in Hausa). I’d say this basically means “The people will see [the greatnes of] the boy.” You can help me define it better! I’ll suggest the name goes along with “Oluchi” (Igbo for “the work of God”).

Amen-Diosdesea: Coined from “Amen” (Latin/Greek origin meaning “So be it”), “Dios” (Spanish for “God”) and Desea (Spanish for “Desires”). I’d say this literally means “If it is ok by God, its ok by me.” You can help me define it better!

Nick form: Dide; Amend;
Happy mood: D-D;
Angry mood: DESEA!!

The name is DIOSOPHILIA. Suitable for a Princess, though a son can still bear the name.

Diosophilia: Coined from “Dios” (meaning “God Almighty” in Spanish) and “Philia” (meaning close friendship or brotherly love in Greek)… I’d say this is the brotherly Love of God, or better yet, God is Love (1Jn4:8b). You can help me define it better!

Well, the first name I’ll present here is quite funny, but touching (that’s if you’ve read my short story “Codename: Anthokinesis” on Amazon: http://t.co/NCgz43X). The name is ANTHOKINESIS. Suitable for an adopted child who is really lucky to have parents again. Please, if you are sure you won’t be a caring foster parent, don’t bother calling the baby Anthokinesis.

Anthokinesis is the story of a kid who got help from a charity club to achieve his dreams. Coined from “Antho-” (Flowers, which could represent a GIFT, a sign of love, new fragrance, beauty) and “Kinesis” (representing movement)… I’d say this is moving of a rare gift to a place where it wouldn’t have been, and affecting a life positively (Gift presentation). You can help me define it better!
