When parents choose a name for their newborn, usually there is a significant amount of time and thought that goes into the process. I know I had a list of names going long before I was ever expecting. I looked through baby name books, thought about family names, searched out orgins and meanings of names, and took in consideration suggestions from others. I tend to lean towards unique names.
One of the most unique names that I have ever came across is Ozella. This is the name of a lady from my hometown. We went to church together and my parents were card playing buddies with Ms Ozella and her husband. I don't know the history of her name. I don't know if it's a family name or if she was named after someone. Naturally, it is not a name that you hear every day. I only know one Ozella, but I did come across a name very similar, Mozella. My husband knew a Mozella. Isn't that ironic?
I am going to be in my hometown during Easter and if I should meet up with Ms Ozella, I plan to ask her about her name. Maybe she will be pleased to know that her name was the inspiration for my 'O' blog.
What unique name do you know?
