I remember really loving Charlotte and Eleanor. I was a typical girly girl and only wanted 3 girls. The third would have been Lillian nn Lily or Libby. The first boys name I really liked was John(all my teddies were called John and I suggested it as a name for my youngest brother). When I was a bit older I loved Zachary nn Zac and Max.
Olin and Mirielle
I was convinced that I would name my son Olin and a girl Mirielle.
My husband finally told me that Olin sounds like a word in Tagalog (his language) that he would rather not use (body part).
Mirielle is still on our list - but drat the popularity of -elle- names these days!!!
I started to pick out names when I was 11. I found a website with a forum and the hobby kind of turned into a passion. I would post on Baby Names World everyday and developed the oddest taste in names. I still remember a few.
I was absolutely convinced at the age of 11 I would have a little girl named Reighn. Then when I started researching more, I quickly threw that one out.
Alice Galatea Primrose
Poet Antigone Fairaday (this one still baffles me!)
Lilia Persephone Ruth
Elijah Matteo (don't remember the other middle name)
Crazy child I was! Now at 21 I like more simple names. I love Hattie Eloise and Maisie Violet and Stella Caroline.
By the way, I know a 5 year old Lily Anna. :)
My first favorite names were Sadie, Declan Avery, Caleb Atticus, etc. Sadie actually feel off my list for five years or so and is now back on it. Declan has gotten too popular and Caleb is too blah to me. Nothing I hate though.
As a kid I always wanted a daughter to name Magazine, nn Maggie.
The only name still on my list today is Isabel.
I was obsessed with the name Alexander for a boy. I was convinced I would have a son named Alexander and call him Sacha (admittedly I toyed with the spelling Aleksander/Aleksandr for a while... perish the thought D: ) and then I met the most horrid little boy named Alexander and I never thought of it the same way again. I still dislike it to this day. After that was Jack, which I'm still fond of, it's just so incredibly common.
My taste in girls names has been much more varied... for a long time I liked Jessica, then Destiny and Ivory (briefly), and then Sam. Samus, to be specific - my boyfriend at the time was a huge gamer and Metroid Prime geek, and he agreed to my favorite name in exchange for our future first daughter being named Samus. I don't like any of those names anymore (I never liked Samus tbh, but I could deal with it if she was called exclusively Sam).
Ahh memories. .. The girls were Sara Hollianne, Allison Noelle, Andrea Eden. The boys were Spencer Tyler, Brennan Grey, and Collin Gabriel
From the time that I was 8 years old (20 years ago), I was obsessed with the name Rylie Jean for a girl. Back then, Riley was never thought of as a girls name really and I thought it was just the coolest idea. But to make it more feminine looking, I changed the spelling to Rylie. Jean was because it is my middle name as well as my mom's middle name and I wanted to pass it on. Another name I was obsessed with for awhile was Samara, because I loved the nn Sam on a girl, same with Alexis, nn Alex. I apparently liked boys names on girls because all the names I had picked out are boys names lol. I think the only name I liked that didn't have a male nickname was Kathryn, nn Kat...because I love cats >.>;;
When it came to boys names, I really didn't have any picked out because I swore that I wasn't going to have a boy when I grew up...I was ONLY going to have daughters! Because obviously I can choose what gender I have :P
Anyways, when we got pregnant and found out we were having a girl (maybe my young self knew what she was talking about), I convinced my fiance into naming her Rylie Jean, which I still loved. However, about a week before she was born, I started to have some serious doubts and we went through some names. We ended up naming her Gwyneth (because I liked the name Gwynna and he liked Guinevere...hence the compromise) Rylie (because I still thought it was a cool name to use). Now I wish I would have put more time and effort into her name because I would never use Rylie now and I feel the name Gwyneth blocks me into only using a few names that go with it. I also wish I would have used Jean because it honors both my and my fiance's family. Oh well...tastes always change, right?
Oh yes......... at aged 8 or 9 I loved;
And i had a china baby doll I named Lydia Mary Elizabeth Anne Beatrice
The others were more simply named Charlotte and Emily
Then I turned teenage and wanted twins called Jade and Jasmine. Boys were Axl and Alfie!!
