    Here's a useful name resource:
    http://www.behindthename.com/

    Offers gender/ethnic filters and searches on meanings or descriptions of names.

    In China, you can use any words as you enjoy your name.
    I do not know whether the English name also can be.
    By the way, i am a man.

    If I can be called the ocean, then I can be called the horizon?
    have rules about the words that can be use?
    no rules?

    Are you looking for a real name, or just something to use online?

    Kgarbageiz is a hindi name that means horizon, but I don't think you can pass that as an English name.

    If your dog gets dirty, you can't even wash it. Well, you can, but you have to take elaborate round-about ways to describe what you did to avoid getting "poop" stuck in there.
