I knew a teenage Hilary. She was very nice.
No one seems to share the love....
Meriwether (I'd only use it for a mn, but people still don't like it)
Ashley (for a boy)
Astrid (people tell me about the Office episode when it got misspelled as Astird....so sad, but I still love the name)
Olya (softer sounding form of Olga, yeah, no one likes the name Olga in America)
Do you know how many times I've been called boring for wanting to use the name Mark? Too many times to count. I'm not sure why there is so much hate for that name out there . . .
Yeah, everytime I see Astrid I think of "ass turd" from The Office lol Funny episode, but yeah it's a hard association to shake at the moment.

I've considered Mark/ Marc a time or two... I will admit that it's not the most exciting name, but it's easy to spell and pronounce and it's used all over the world.
