I loved the adventure of it and the weary traveler vibe l always got form the name. The second reason is in The Water Horse the “water horse” was named Crusoe by Angus (a name on my A boy list).

ALMOST MADE IT:

 

  1. Crew

Origin: English word name                    Popularity: 715th in the US (2015)

Mina:        This name should have made it higher on my list, however I forgot about it until the last second and I didn’t feel like rearranging stuff. I love nature names and Cedar is really nice for a boy in my opinion. However, I don’t like it very much for a female, because there is a girl I knew in school named Cedar and she was a bitch.

 

 

 

  1. Chance

Origin: French variation of Chauncey                                     Popularity: 250th in the US (2015)
