Nymbler Game :)
I just thought of a really fun game.
1. Go to Nymbler.com
2. Add your top 3 girls names and top 3 boys names as your inspirations
3. Click find names once
4. List all of the names that show up here and tell us what you think of them!
Here are mine:
What showed up:
Audrey-Really like Audrey, but prefer Aubrey
Ava-Not a bad name, but it doesn't appeal to me personally
Quincy-All boy to me but it's NMS on either gender
Kelsey-I haven't considered this name much but now that it's been brought to my attention I think I like it
Lacey- NMS, also I have a bad association with this name
Charlotte- Charlotte has been growing on me
Avery- Not a bad name, but I prefer it on a boy
Mitchell- NMSAA, also a bad association for me
Oliver- I had a cat named this once, so I can't see it on a human LOL
Forrest- Someone else suggested Forrest to me and I really like it
Merritt- NMS, interesting though
Henry- I feel like I should like this name, but it doesn't appeal to me. I do like when other people use it, though.
James -- reminds me of my friend from high school that died...sad
Adrian -- I considered this one too, but decided against it
Leo -- Love it on it's own
Julian -- Love it, prefer Julius, but love it
Oliver -- love it. So spunky and cool, but not for my kids
Benjamin -- Love it. I considered at one point
Julien -- I like it, but not spelled this way
Madeline -- very pretty but not for me
Elizabeth -- overdone
Ella -- again, nms at all
Christie -- nms at all
Hermione -- LOVE I love the mythology connection and I love the Greek pronunciation hair-mee-OH-nee
Antoinette -- LOVE. I only know one (who goes by Kitty) and I love it so much, but not for my kids
Grace -- so overdone
Katharine -- Classic and lovely, but NMS
I love Damien, but I can't get "The Omen" association out of my mind :(
oooh I like this!
Charlotte - it's pretty but it isn't a name I would use
Keira - cute but not for me
Cara - pretty but I wouldn't use it
Abigail - pretty but I just think of one friend Abby so I wouldn't use it
Grace - I really like this (and Gracie)
Elizabeth - pretty and classic
Maura - very pretty but not my style
Ava - adorable but too popular
Owen - love it
Ryan - my brother's name
Shane - not my favorite
Sean - nice but I prefer the Shawn spelling
Shayne - even worse with the y
Colin - it's ok but I definitely like the two l's Collin better
Liam - nice name
Estelle (I can't use this because I have a cousin named Stella, so I was excited for an inspired alternative.)
Nixon (can't use, so again excited for an idea based this one)
Olivia -A cousin on each side of my family is named Olivia. Otherwise, I think it's adorable, but too overdone for me.
Violet - A friend is using this one. I love it.
Grace - nms
Olive - Olive sounds a too bit masculine for me.
Cordelia- I don't love it.
Lucy - Not a fan. For some reason it's a name that I can easily envision on tiny babies and on old women, but not any ages between.
Charlotte - Eh. I like Colette better (too bad it's already my niece's name).
June - Adorable, but probably not one I'd use.
Cecil - My dad used to call me Cecil occasionally, so this one's out for me.
Benjamin - Don't like, I never have.
Emmett - I prefer my choice of Everett, but it is a nice name.
Oliver - Love.
Reid - this one is actually on my short list.
Henry - Reallly dislike Henry, probably largely due to bad association.
Edmund - meh. I like it more than Edward, but I'm not liking it.
