Splangelay /splǽndʒəle/ (female)
Many people fall in love with this name without even realizing that the vanilla classic, Angela, appears in its entirety right there in the middle of it. Splangelay is fun, spontaneous, bold, and daring. Its dynamic character is likely the only reason a high-tier name like Angela can dissolve so readily into the whole. It is also this dynamism that counteracts the classic’s pretty but bland veneer and gives it the edge it needs to cut it in today’s hypercritical baby-naming industry. Welcome, Splangelay. We hope you stay a while.
“Why bother painting Splangelay’s bedroom? She’ll just cover the damn walls in posters anyway.”
