Hi! I'm Xanthe, and I'm in college. I plan on pursuing grad school, so a family is not in my immediate future, but I always love to learn new names! My "fashion" is obscure mythological names (lolz) and other really old dusty gems from any language. I also love a few classics as well. Names help me imagine different personas, people that live in different worlds or different "moods". I sometimes name myself different things for situations, or as representations of the state of being I currently inhabit. Nice to meet you all!
Hi, my name is Tara. I'm 21 but I feel like I'm 19, I've recently moved from the UK to Australia in the past year, and have found myself on nameberry most days and discovering new names that I adore. I currently looking for work in Admin/Retail as I have been out of work since arriving in 2012 but only recently been getting call backs and interviews for jobs as my spouse visa was approved.
I like both suggestions of intweenberries and berrysomethings.
I think my naming style comes from books mostly and volunteering for a children's charity I tend to come along so interesting names in the database. I even find new names from the boardgame hobby my and the bf have, names such as Edmund, Alaric and Leoric have come up as just a few playable characters in some games. My naming style tends to be somewhere between classic and quirky :)
Ooh which ones? Huge fan of Buffy and Supernatural, myself.

I like eating (chocolate, milk & salmon. honestly, i could live on that!) and sleeping (I would be a perfect Panda...), travelling (going through the security check at the airport is my favorite thing!), royal families (anyone else in here?) and I bitterly regret not having a middle name... I guess I am a really berry!
No boyfriend, no kids, no younger sister (but a older one, with middle names!) but the cutest teddy bear on earth, does it count???
I had an other username before but I can't remember the password, but I like this new one much better.
I love Buffy and Supernatural too. I haven't followed the comics for Buffy though, and I'm really, really hesitant about watching S9 of Supernatural. After reading spoilers (which you're not supposed to put any stock in, I know) and some of the things the writers have supposedly said, I'm ready to pretend the show ended with a massive cliffhanger like Angel. :)

I keep meaning to watch Merlin and Firefly too.

I think Doctor Who/Torchwood could be considered a cult show, I'm hoping they do another adaption? of Doctor Who with with Madam Vastra, Jenny and Strax :) I also have read all the current books of A song of Fire and Ice, but yet have to watch a GoT. I really liked Primevil but haven't watched that in ages.
@knutsen I'm a huge royalist too! Mostly the British royals (I'm a total Anglophile) but I find it interesting to know what the other ones are doing too. So cool that you live in France, what part? I've been to Paris twice and loved it, definitely want to go again someday. I'm obsessed with chocolate too, and most other kinds of sweets...
I believe this is my category, though I wont be starting University till next year (should've started this year, but took a gap year two years ago).
I'm Zelia or Elja, nineteen and from Copenhagen, Denmark (but has roots in France, Greenland, Germany and England ... and Austria, I believe). I'm currently in between the Danish Sixth Form and University (the Danish school system is messy, but free and we even get paid for attending school, so I'm not the one to complain), taking the Higher Preparatory Examination (in daily speech, HF) and also currently debating with myself whether I should study Law, English, Film and Media Science or History next year.
I have been terribly interested in royalty ever since I was quite young and run several blogs dedicated to the royals, as well as a personal blog (the one in my signature) where I gush about various films, television series and people. I also spend the bigger part of my spare time on photoshop, making gifs of aforementioned subjects which I then post on the blogs. I'm a major cinephile and some of my absolute favourite places in the world are cinemas. Also I live for christmas and awards season (so obviously November to early March is my favourite time of the year).
I'm Bipolar (for some reason I find that Manic-Depressive was a much more expressive term - "Bipolar" just makes me think of mathematics) which really only is dangerous to myself at times yet people avoid talking about the subject as if it is contagious. It's (sadly) still a very stigmatised disorder (like so many other mental illnesses) but I do believe that talking about it makes it so much easier to cope with - and bless Stephen Fry for having talked openly about his struggle with the illness, I honestly don't know what I would have done without him.
Born in Michigan, raised in Connecticut.
Senior Nursing student.
BA in Spanish, just for fun.
Zelia! When I saw the post about royals I was wondering when you'd chime in. Wow, you get paid for attending school?! I'm really lucky that my university tuition's covered by my parents' practically-unheard-of work benefits, but I can tell you how jealous we Canadian students are :p I don't know anything really about manic depression but glad that you've found something that helps. I don't go to the cinema much, but I spend a good portion of my allowance on theatre tickets! I recently saw The Audience- the play about the Queen and prime ministers, starring Helen Mirren- which was performed in London but filmed and broadcast around the world, and it was one of the most amazing plays I've ever seen. Check it out if you can!
