Meaning: occupation name        Origin: word or occupation name         Popularity: Not ranked in the top 1,000 in any country

Michelle:          This is one of the single most amazing names on the planet to me.

  1. Bellamy

Meaning: “fine friend”        Origin: English and Irish from French         Popularity: Not ranked in the top 1,000 in any country

Michelle:          I can’t see any reason why people think this name isn’t a gorgeous, gender fluid name. It’s got that favorable Bella beginning with a little bit of French flair at the end, which makes sense, since Belle is French. But regardless, this is a cute choice for a little munchkin.
