Great replies! It's nice to know that people are generally in favor of a little whimsy :) More favorites or awesome name spottings are welcome. Thanks, everyone!
I have been seriously contemplating a whimsical word name for the past few months for a future daughters middle name. I don't know though, it may be... too much. Or I kind of feel like, "Why should this child get this flattering name and not my first daughter?" I think you'll see what I mean when I say the name I am considering is... Radiance. My husband wants all the kids to have "Ray" In their middle name, and my daughters middle name is Rain. I think another daughter could be Raven, and since these are both word names... I started thinking of other Ray words, and came up with Radiant and Radiance.
Love whimsical middles! I think middle names, since they usually aren't used in day to day life, are allowed to have a bit of whimsy!
I like a lot of nature/word names for the middle spot - Snow, Dove, Wynn, Aspen, Harbor, Season, Silver to name a few.
My nephew's middle name is Fate. That is for sure not my style.
Moxie is a guilty pleasure I'd consider using in the middle spot, along with certain weird flower and/or mythology names (Chrysanthemum, Amaryllis, Taliesin.)
I love them, and would use them as first or middle names!
I know of children / Adults with unusual first names, I don't know of any with unusual middles though.
Love the name Peregrine nn Penn! I know a Peregrine but he goes by Pere ("Perry").
