I'll skip the long story, but the gist is DH and I got "Kairi" from a video game. We're not dead set on keeping up a video game theme, and yet, part of us would like to consider doing so. We've done a lot of searching online, as well as having done a LOT of gaming, and only come up with a short list of names we like. Many of them, we would not use because they just don't work with our last name.

So, I was hoping some of you might throw a few suggestions our way? Something that works with Kairi?

I hope not everyone here thinks we're that odd... we never intended to use video game names, it just happened that I was playing a game, and the name popped up. Pure coincidence that we fell in love with the name.

Nonsense. Kagan is a name on my top 10. It's a name that was randomly generated for a character my husband created for World of Warcraft.

Which other names do you like? Were you thinking PC games or console games? One of my favorite Warcraft names is Alexstrasza (nn Alex of course).

The Elder Scrolls Treasury II: Common Names in Morrowind Has names from Morrowind

I only pay those two games, for the most part. =/
