Magenta

I first heard of this as a name when someone on Yahoo Answers (years ago) was saying how their sister was gonna name her soon to be born daughter Magenta and how its a ridiculous name.  People were saying it reminded them of Blue's Clues (thankfully I've never seen it).  I didn't like it at the time but didn't think it was the worst I had ever heard either.  This year (2011) I have been thinking about it more and there are other colors that are names Violet (also a flower), Indigo (adorable), Blue (getting very popular), Gray (Gray, Grayer, Grayson, etc.........) and more I probably can't think of right now, so.......why not Magenta?  If you can see passed anything that may be blocking you from seeing this as an actual name, and REALLY listen to the name, it does actually sound like a name and it is actually a very pretty name.  I have been really trying and really listening to this name and I have changed my mind on it and even love it enough to move it to my all time favorites list.

Someone else asked the questions on YA recently "is Magenta really all that bad?"  someone had pointed out that Magenta is actually a place in Italy where the color was first made, so they either had named the color after the town or named the town after the color, I don't know but yeah there is a Magenta in Italy.  Finding that out and with me loving place names, really helped me see this different and it adds even more beauty to it.

Not everyone will love this name or at least not right away, it is a lovely name that I hope people will not shun right away and take the time to try and like it; because its really beautiful.
