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?


  1. I think that is a great name!

    I can't think of any original names.

  2. I have never heard that name (or Mozella)either. Very interesting post. I would like to read about her name if you ever learn the story. I'm stopping by from the A to Z challenge and I look forward to reading more from you.
