    Dislike Flavia/Flavie and Jordana. Sybil and Thora are darling. I like Claudia/Claudie, but would worry about people pronouncing it as Cloudia. Florence is alright, but it has lost its sparkle for me...

    Love either pronunciation of Bea. Betsy, or even Betty, could also be adorable on the right girl. Beata is hard for me to say, and Tris seems a little dated.

    I find both genders can be difficult/unexciting at times, for me, but in different ways.

    For boys, I've had a few names that I've loved for a long time, and then a very long list of names I like....

    Yes! My biggest naming pet peeve. It's the same with parents who claim not to have been aware that the name they've chosen was becoming popular; popularity trends are clear, it seems very rare for a...

    Hmm, I'm British, and I would see purple as a more 'little girly' colour than yellow. However, I tend to see a distinction more between soft pastels in use for girls and bold, bright colours for...

    Whilst I do think it would be mistaken for Emma (or perhaps Abba, but they had some great tunes!) regularly, I really really like it. I think it's very pretty and would fit in so well with all the...

    To be honest, I'm British, and I really don't get it. Whilst it doesn't feel super early 80s to me, it seems very late 80s/early 90s (think it may have risen to popularity later here than in the US),...

    Josephine
