Say: Wow, very uncommon names. How nice!
Think: Annabeth is gorgeous. Great way to spice up Elizabeth and Anna. I really dislike Percy. It's probably because of the character in the green mile. :p
Hi, these are my daughters, Susannah and Cordelia. Their nicknames are Susie and Delia.
Say: Hello, girls! Nice to meet you!
Think: What gorgeous names! I adore both if them. They are so elegant and perfectly familiar but not common. I'd prefer different nns myself- maybe Zuzu and Cora- but still...lovely names.
These are my daughters, Thea Emmeline, Margot Ivy, and Ingrid Jane.
Say: Hello! What classic names!
Think: Thea is awesome, though I prefer a full name to back it up. Margot looks like maggot to me, so its NMS, but Ingrid is refreshing to see! All are good, solid names, though.
These are my twin daughters, Eve Eliora and Wren Alethea.
Say: Hello girls, so nice to meet you!
Think: Love all but one of the names. Eve is marvelous, timeless and chic. Both middle names are unique and melodic but Wren is for the birds, literally.
This is my niece Benita Laraine, she goes by Binnie and her brother Duncan Jeremiah.
Say: Hi Binnie, hi Duncan!
Think: Adorable names! If my baby is a girl, we plan to either name her Hermione or Benedita, and Benedita's nick name would be Bennie. This name and nick name reminds me a lot of Benita "Binnie"! It's so cute. I really like Lorraine, so Laraine is okay. And I love the boy's name, both Duncan and Jeremiah!
This is my son David Hamish. He goes by Davey.
Say: Hello, Davey!
Think: Meh, David's kind of boring, and I still don't really "get" Hamish, but it's a nice, classic, respectable name.
These are my daughters, Annabel Sofia and Coralie Georgia.
Say: Hi girls!
Think: I rather see Sophia spelled this way, and I find Annabel so trendy right now. On the other hand, Coralie Georgia is fabulous.
This is my daughter Reverie Gemma.
Say: Hi Reverie, what an interesting name!
Think: It's nice, but I'm not a personal fan.
This is my daughter, Beatrice Jemima
Say: Hello Beatrice!
Think: I'm back and forth on Beatrice. Some days I like it, some days I don't, so it's just OK for me. Jemima I just don't like. Beatrice and Jemima together? ....eh
This is my daughter, Cecily Primrose.
Think: That name sounds like a fairy tale princess... I think it's a good thing for this name.
This is my twins Felicity Arwen, who goes by Lissie, and my son Caius Evander, who goes by Cai.
