My Top 100 Baby Names
Hey, I'm Sophie, 21, not pregnant, just love names! First post here, so I thought I'd share my favourite names and see what you guys think! There's a real mixture of styles here, but they're mostly classic/traditional, with a few wacky ones! Nicknames that I like are in brackets, some are without because I prefer the full name to the common nicknames available. All opinions welcomed, but please be polite. If you can suggest others to add to the list, that would be cool.
You have great taste :) I especially like Oliver & Charlotte from your list, but all of them are great names!
Welcome! Looks like you fit right in, you have many of the Berry favorites on there!
I also love the name Archer nicknamed Archie, so i was happy to see that on your list :)
You have some great choices; my favorites from your lists are:
Abram nn Abe/Bram -- Liking Bram. Very fresh spin on a very old name
Everett nn Rhett
Leopold nn Leo
Malcolm nn Mack/Mal -- Might I also suggest nn Colm?
Peregrin nn Pippin -- I like just Pip, too
Reuben -- Loving this name recently, very manly
Theodore nn Theo/Teddy
Tobias nn Toby
William nn Will/Liam
Charlotte nn Lottie -- I also think the nn Charlie is super cute for a little tomboy
Eleanor nn Nora -- Also loving nn Ellie recently
Evelyn -- nn Evie?
Juliet nn Jules -- Love this name/nn combo!
Katherine nn Kate
Poppy -- One of my new favorites
Sophia nn Sophie -- Popular for a reason!
Victoria -- I also really like Vittoria
Violet -- nn Viola?
You have a lot of nice names on there. My favorites are:
Arthur -- I prefer it without a nickname
Augusten -- I like it for Augusten Burroughs and without a nn
Barnaby -- again, no nn for me. I wish more people used this
Bartholomew -- Same with this. I like Mew
Cassius -- But I pronounce it cass-ee-us and don't use a nn
Nathaniel -- This was on my list for a long time. I like it without a nn
Percival -- I hate Percy so much >.<
Peregrin -- <3 I'd use Pippin
Raphael -- This ones on my list with the nn Ra
Alice -- I like it with no nn
Amelia -- again, no nn
Anastasia -- I think I might use Tia for this one. How are you getting Star?
Aurelia -- no nn
Helena -- but only pronounced helen-ah. I like Nell as a nn but probably wouldn't use one
Minerva -- Love it and wish people would use it.
Sophia (Sophie) -- This ones on my list as a middle for Guenevere
Sybil -- I wouldn't use a nn or I'd use Sibbie
Thanks for all the positive comments!
To answer dantea's question of how I got the nn Star from Anastasia, I knew a girl at school called Anastasia who went by Star. It really suited her and I prefer it to nn like Nastia and Stacey, although Tia is quite nice.
Leahmarie, I love the suggestion of nn Colm for Malcolm! However, for the girl's names, I dislike Charlie and Ellie as they have negative connotations for me (mean girls at school).
I have another question for you:
My number one names from my list are (currently!) Bartholomew (Tolly) and Helena (Nell). Helena is actually a family name (paternal grandmother, though I never met her). I think Tolly and Nell would make an adorable sibset. don't you agree? Also, it is a tradition in my family to use family names for middle names, so out of these names, which would work best with Bartholomew and Helena?
Kenneth (paternal uncle)
Norman (paternal uncle)
Richard (paternal uncle)
John (maternal grandfather)
Sophie (paternal grandmother's middle name, who I am named after - full circle there)
Grace (my middle name)
Margaret (my middle name, maternal grandmother, paternal aunt, maternal aunt's middle name - very popular name in my family!)
Pamela (maternal aunt, maternal great-aunt)
Elisabeth (paternal aunt)
I think the best combos are:
Bartholomew John (Since Bartholomew is so long I think you need a very short middle)
Helena Grace (Though Grace is becoming pretty popular as a middle)
Helena Lorraine (Really pretty)
If I was choosing, I'd say Bartholomew James and Helena Lorraine.
