Zoraida

To get things going, I thought I'd post about my own personal dilemma.

Namely, Zoraida.

I like this name. Maybe not enough to give to a child, but I really do like it. The trouble is that it was invented by Cervantes for Don Quixote. It doesn't mean anything - it's just a pretty sound. To me, Zoraida is proof that 'made-up' doesn't need to mean tacky (though many often are, in my opinion), but I would still have problems giving it to a child. How do you feel about giving a kid a name that doesn't mean anything?
