Gender: Masculine
Usage: English, French, Portuguese, Catalan
Pronounced: ZAY-vee-ər (English), ZAY-vyər (English), ig-ZAY-vee-ər (English), za-VYAY (French)
Derived from the Basque place name Etxaberri meaning "the new house". This was the surname of the Jesuit priest Saint Francis Xavier (1506-1552). He was a missionary to India, Japan, China, and other areas in eastern Asia, and he is the patron saint of the Orient and missionaries. His surname has since been adopted as a given name in his honour, chiefly among Catholics.

Gender: Feminine
Usage: Germanic Mythology
Pronounced: lawr-e-LIE, LAWR-e-lie
From a Germanic name meaning "luring rock". This is the name of a rock headland on the Rhine River. Legends say that a maiden named the Lorelei lives on the rock and lures fishermen to their death with her song.

WDYT about these names?

I love Lorelei, but it makes me think of Gilmore girls.

Xavior I don't like.

I dislike Xavier.

I love Lorelei. If anything, the Gilmore Girls association is a good one, since I loved the show.

I started liking Xavier ever since I read a book with a guy named Xavier being one of the main characters.

Lorelei is okay. I knew an older woman with this name so it seems a little dated to me.
