    Male , Female names that remind something

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to ask you to tell me please some names that remind some things because I need them for a short film script.

    Male name that reminds: resurrection (it's not about the Christ it's about a man who wakes up from coma)
    Female name that reminds: Hope
    Female name that reminds: Life
    Male name that reminds: Healing (again it's not about the Christ it's about a doctor)

    Thank you!

    Male name that reminds: resurrection (it's not about the Christ it's about a man who wakes up from coma) Lazarus
    Female name that reminds: Hope Hope is a good name
    Female name that reminds: Life Zoe or Nina -- both mean life
    Male name that reminds: Healing (again it's not about the Christ it's about a doctor) Apollo

    Thank you!
    The male names are not common but they are recognizable.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Livia for 'life', Esperanza for 'hope' (means hope in French and Spanish).

    I would suggest doing a Google search for 'baby name meanings' for more information than you'll ever be able to complete read through.

    Many of those sites will let you search by definition or ethnicity, as well as alphabetically.

    Thank you for the answers! I have manage to decide about all the names except from the male name that reminds resurrection. There is the Lazarus, and Anastasius but I don't know whether these are common enough!

    Well, if your character is Hispanic, there's always Jesús (pronounced differently from the biblical name).

    My daughter is named Zoe and my brother had a daughter named Nina.
