What do you think of the name Mazikeen for a girl?

I'm trying out names for a girl to honor someone named Dante. We thought Mazikeen (a word from Jewish mythology for the children of Lillith, meaning genie) was a pretty name that fell into the same theme. I'd like outside opinion on it, though.

I think that it's a pretty name. It is different, and so it won't be used too often in other places which makes it a good fit for someone that is unique. I'd say go for whatever your gut tells you! If you're naming a kid, then make sure that your partner likes it, but if it's for something you're writing or being creative with then you may want to look into various names until you have a list. Then you can vote on what you like by listing the pros and cons of each name and going with whatever fits best.

 

There are many ways to find baby names online[1] if this is you trying to name a child. With this site you can create a poll so parents can vote on what they think. It may give you some more insight into what people think. Another idea is to just look up the name to see if anyone is attached to it that isn't that good of a person. I, for instance, found a website about a comic book character in the first result when searching for the name[2].

Mazikeen does not mean genie. They believe it is invisible demons. mazikeen has no positive meaning to it. Its basically a name for a demon.

I think it is a very unique, very cool name.

 

I used to work in a school, and I presented awards to our students at the end of every quarter. The only concern I have about the name is that it seems difficult to pronounce; looking at it, I am not sure how you would say it. Therefore, if you choose to name your little girl Mazikeen, be aware that people may have difficulty saying it throughout her life. That said, as long as you are happy with her name, go for it! You are giving her a name that means something to you, and that is special.

 

Have you considered a nickname for her? As I was looking up Mazikeen, I saw that a common nickname is Maze [1]. I think that, or Mazie, is an adorable name for a little girl.

 

If you are still searching, Magic Baby Names has a list of baby names for girls like Dante. You can find it here: http://www.magicbabynames.com/?baby=girl&name=Dante
