Merit and Verity are both great!
My personal favorites are...
Bay (Prefer as nn for Baylor)
Dash (Prefer as nn for Dashiell)
Pax (Prefer as nn for Paxton)
November (Love the nn Nova)
Lake (Prefer as nn for Laken)
Tru (As nn for Trula)
Silver (Love the nn Sylvie but the spelling issues from formal to nn kind of bother me...would probably use Sylvana)
And I have to confess my guilty pleasures...Moxie and Maverick. :)
@namesage: Bay is really pretty! It is like an update on May. :) Song and Story are lovely and November is growing on me.
@tuitree: Emerald is so regal and lovely! Arden and Lark are some of my favorites. Verdi is so cool! I would never have thought of it as a name, but I love the color green and names that begin with V, so that is definitely getting added to my list. Thanks!
@divine1: Blaze is really cool, although I think I would spell it Blaise.
