Favorite Month Name
I love so many of the month names. The problem is I feel like I have to limit myself to using just one for future children. I don't want to be that weird family from when I was a kid that had a way too obvious naming theme- Lily, Daisy, and Ivy. A little much there.
So sigh. I will probably only ever use one. Right now my favorite is August or maybe April. But I also really love longer versions of these names Junia, Augusta. Ugh. Could somebody get away with having an Augustus and Junia? I don't know.
What's your favorite?
Mae - for a girl. I also like Mavis and Mabel nn Mae.
August - for a boy. I like Augusta for a girl.
I like January too! You may be able to get away with Augustus and Junia if they go by Gus and June. August and June wouldn't really fly.
I've always thought February and January are awesome, but I'd never really use them.
April would be cute, but for me it's been taken by the Ninja Turtles.
Mae is adorable.
June is sweet.
I love May and June. I'd probably use May as a nickname for Mary. I voted for June because it works better as a stand alone IMO.
I like June and January for a girl and August and March for a boy.
I forgot about March for a boy. Dang, another one I would like to use.
I love most of the month names!
So many great sounds!
January - Because it's my birth month first off! Also I love the idea of using it to represent fresh starts/new beginnings
May - Prefer Mae and I like it as a nn for Mavis
June - Love Junie even more, but this I would use as a nn for Juniper
August - Mainly because I love the name Gus and would use this as the formal name
October - I love fall and October is my favorite time of year. I think it has a great sound and even though it's not received well by my fellow berries, I really could get behind the nn Toby for a girl. I knew a girl named October when I was younger who went by Tobi, which I'm sure influenced my feelings toward it.
November - I think this might be my favorite. Again, it's a time of year I love. I adore the nn Nova which is high up on my personal list.
I know a set of sisters in their 40s who were named after the months they were born in. April, November "Nova", and Augustine "Tina" (I always said that last one was a cop out!
I really like November, February and January! Not that I'd use them but still...
August is in the top 2 for a boy for me! I love it. I'm not really a fan of any of the others, though I do like the ring of September for a girl.
I love June for a girl's mn and August for a boy. I like May as a nn, and January is cool too :)
