Gweef /gwíf/ (male)
This name — which had its debut over the weekend at Vancouver’s extremely exclusive Festival of Names — is effortlessly light and airy, floating like a cloud of fragrant mist. This makes Gweef the perfect name for a dreamer, particularly an awkward or reclusive one. Critical reception may still be tepid, but anyone with a namer’s palate can see this name for what it is: a slow burner that’s destined to set the naming world aflame with its ample panache. Look for this one to show up on the radar of all the mainstream naming blogs in 6 to 12 months. For now, take our advice and get this one before it’s cool!
