Name Aesthetics

I have decided to dedicated this space as a fun, free etymology and onomastics resource to the meaning of all your lovely names.  Names are deciphered and interpreted by the great Madame Tallulah, but please be aware that nothing here is real, nothing an authentic statement, other that perhaps it is just a fun way to spend a few minutes while you are here.  

Even if you are here just to browse, we hope that you will enjoy a unique spin on a fascinating study field. We invite you to add your name without expecting much of anything; nothing grand, true, or historical in the sense of justice and words.  Just add your comments, and participate in our forums if you wish.

And here with you.... Madame Tallulah! ;)


A crystal ball, river stones, magical cards, a bowl of bones, holy water, rosary beads, an owl, a cat, a bag of seeds, diamond earrings, string of pearls, gold and silver, skirt that swirls, rings of onyx, ruby, sapphire, lithely dance, around the fire, eyes that see beyond this world, a woman, a hag, a crone, a girl, trust, believe, give me something to keep, and I will tell you of what you seek ;)

Leave a message, and our Fortune Teller, Tallulah will gift you with a short aesthetics about all of your beautiful names!  ;)

      Ancient Zoroastrian traditions, imperial dynasties, mirror and candelabras, an Egyptian princess. An elaborate wedding, oils and perfumes. A loaf of bread, halved by sword. Small sugary sweets. White poppy, and cardamom seeds in a perfumed satin sash placed on a small glass plate. A blue pearl. The Pāua of shallow coastal waters.

    1. Aesthetic for Delaine? Here we go:

      The route to the rainbows of your heart. An Alder Grove and a temperate forest in France. A catkin, cylindrical flower cluster. Dappled sunshine on evergreen-clad slopes. The melody of branches being caressed by gentle breezes. The sound of a bubbling brook secreted in the Fontainebleau Forest. A French street musician’s songs drifting through the market.

      Two souls smiling through one heart. A paradox. A diamond studded tiara, a royal wedding dress, ivory silk taffeta and antique hand-made Carrickmacross lace. Sequins and pears. The other one is fire. Ancient Greek hymns. An olive grove. Winged horses, a raven haired, ivory skinned maiden. Wishes cast on shooting stars. A balm to the wounded spirit. Intricately carved designs. Byzantine manuscripts.

      A candy-apple-red-vintage bicycle with the words Free Spirit written across its side. An early Instar monarch caterpillar. Angel kisses on warm afternoon breezes. Handmade truffles, caramels, bars, chocolate-covered fruits and nuts. A bird in a golden cage. The hint of a free spirit, trapped in a pearl at the bottom of a turquoise sea.

  5. I love your tales of camping in the woods where the gypsies roam and the trees whisper tales from long ago carried in the wind and on the wings of the all knowing owls. A home of your heart.

      Two hearts. A white meadow. Snowberry and Spreading Dogbane. A morning in late May. A spotted fawn sleeping on a bed of plants with very small, densely clustered white flowers. Picnicking under a blooming sakura. A sake Samurai ceremony. A cheerful feast. The Edo Period. A Priestess ringing bells over our heads. The second heart—the white grapes that are grown near the town of Jerez. Swirling Flamenco skirts, Andalusian horses and wine. A cathedral with a nave and four aisles of uneven height. An ancient king of Castile and León. Clouds.

      Red wine sangria and plump blackberries. Sheer Organza table swags and candy bags. Diamond confetti, burlap Hessian lace ribbons, and crystal beads. Bolero jackets and crinoline slips. Skirts in many layers of tulle, satin pleating and crystallized rhinestones. Guitar and tambourine music. Shimmering wedding ceremonies under the stars.

      A Knight of the Livonian Order. The Rhymed Chronicles and military expeditions. A river of blood running into the sea. A silver sword and a warrior monk. The walls of an ancient castle forever standing above time.

      A hidden garden, an antique shop, marchés aux puces and brocantes on a summer's day. Velvet ribbons, pearly lace and candlelit time-warps cafés. The twinkling lights of nightfall. An old monastery turned classical music concert hall. A golden Age painting and an Adagio Ballet concerto.

      Barbarian warriors and noble savages. Skaldic poetry, intrepid adventures, seafarers and deep green oceans. The Varangian Rus. A boat made from a hollowed tree trunk floating down the Dnieper into the Black Sea. A beautiful feathered creature and a pirate who preferred the wolf howls of the winter mountains to the seashore.

      The purity of the flowing fountain. The limpidness of the bubbling brook. The whispers of a silent prayer. Spring peepers, and newborns. The light shining ever so brightly in a maiden's eyes.

      Mysterious waters and intrepid sailors. Missing maritime vessels and rumors of drifting, crewless ships. The green songs of mermaids, gold seashells and the paradisiacal realm of the underwater.

  14. I love to visit here. We are kindred, garden spirits. . Fairies and friendly gnomes inhabit my small paradise. There is a little, white dog keeping an eye over all.

      A beautiful spring morning in a secret garden where bluebirds whistle human words as they flutter about you. A song. A hymn. Butterfly whispering secrets in your ears. Morning dew on daffodils and rose petals scattered along a mosaic garden path. A magic tiara, a princess gown, glass slippers and a royal ball. A child as white as snow, lips as red as blood, and hair as black as a raven’s wings. Orange-breasted robins, and moorland cottages crowded with wildflowers, with curious little children and affable, plump Yorkshire housemaids. Sheets of deep blue hydrangeas blooming all about you and fields of Baby's Breath. The Hallelujah played on a tinwhistle.

      The magic of a starry sky in June. A translucent and luminous aquarelle. Vincent Van Gogh and the cave paintings of Paleolithic Europe. Minor planets, and remote galaxies. The gem-studded tiara and white tulle petticoats of the full moon. Fireflies illuminated, warm summer nights. A trail of glitter left by the fairies on mossy paths, deep down in mysterious forests. A Baroque majolica necklace and pearl flower curio boxes. A shining star that comes into view, shining its watchful light on you.

    And, thank you so much for the beautiful meaning you gave to my name. (I couldn't figure out how to post a reply on your Name Aesthetics page). I've always felt that my name is plain and ordinary, but you have breathed magic and beauty into it and helped me to think of myself in a new way.♥

      A palm tree in the desert of Palestine. The feast of Tabernacles and feathery, snow-like, pale-green fronds. Date-stuffed ring cookies. Orange blossom water, and caramelized sugar. A man wrestling with God. The ancient Egyptian capital of Thebes, and Pharaonic antiquities. Papyrus and bronze coins used in the Ancient world. The purity of virgins and an intensely passionate struggle. The Josippon Chronicles, and the blood of innocents spilled over a river of tears.
