say: Hello, Blue
think: Bad name. I hope at least the kid likes it.
This is my daughter Lillian Margaret, but she goes by Lilly-Mae
Hi Lilly-Mae, what a sweet name you have!
It sounds all very deep south, but I love anything with Mae tacked on the end of it! Cute nickname and Lillian is a lovely name to grow in to.
I'd like you to meet my daughter Lucille
Say: Hi, Lucille.
Think: I'll just never like that name as much as I like Lucy.
This is Dermot, my son.
Hi Dermot, how are you?
This name sounds like a skin condition.
This is my son Ralph
Say: Hi Ralph!
Think: Too bad this name has such bad connotations, because it's not too bad.
Hi, this is my daughter Svea.
Say: Hi Svea, nice to meet you.
Think: I'm not sure how to pronounce this...
This is my son Cole.
Say: Hi Cole! What's up?
Think: Like the actor from Zach and Cody! I thought this was a horrible name when I was little, but I really like it now. I could see him getting made fun of on the playground, though. But I can imagine it on a cool teenager. All in all, nice name.
This is my son Nathan.
Say: Hi Nathan, nice to meet you.
Think: Nate is a cute nickname but I prefer Nathaniel to Nathan.
This is my daughter Georgia.
Say: Hi Georgia, cool name you have!
Think: I like it, though I like Indiana better as a state name on a girl.
This is my daughter Cassia
Say: Hi Cassia!
Think: A beautiful name on paper, not really sure how to pronounce it though.
Hi, this is my son Dexter.
