Not a one-man name, no. I live in the home of Denzels, so I've come across it several times before (usually spelt Denzil) but I don't like it. Here, I think it's dated and seen as a stereotypically...
No, actually. It doesn't really apply in that case as I think everyone's opinions were their own/from their own country's perspective :) But one prime example I remember was in a previous argument...

Yeah, it was a bit of a rant, but it was by no means directed at you. It's just something I've seen both here and in other far-flung corners of the internet. It even happens in different areas of...

Ack that annoys me a lot, especially when it comes to names. Being 'English' because your great great granny came over from England 100 years ago does not qualify you to give a English perspective on...

I noticed Amelie, Layla and Kai also seem to think Scotland is separate from the UK/Britain. Jumping the gun a bit- the referendum on independence isn't until September ;)
Charlotte needs a tweak:...

I feel your pain. It crops up in blog posts from time to time too (Queen Elizabeth of 'England', the 'English' Prime Minister etc) Please get this fixed NB!
The inability to distinguish between...
I know it's Welsh, so no guesswork for me :p Seems quite obviously Welsh though, but then I'm more familiar with Celtic languages. The Asian/Arabic comments are quite surprising, seeing as those...
There's absolutely nothing wrong with your names! That person, I'm sorry to say, was being kind of rude. She/he may think they're boring but that absolutely does not mean that they are or that they...

Yeah, there are a wide variety of accents in the UK too (I can think of 8 distinct English ones off the top of my head), but things generally sound the same for us. As for what's prettier, I'm a tad...

I'd be more concerned with the fact they're both two syllables, five letters and have identical ending sounds than whether or not they're 'interesting' enough. Far too similar to use together imo.

I think all of them flow well with their middle names, except perhaps Barnaby Arthur. I like both those names, but the repating 'ar' sound sticks out to me. I love Edmund Francis and Tobias Anthony...
Neither. I say it COL-in. Sounds very different to 'call' imo, but that'll be because of the difference in the way English and Americans pronounce the letter O.

I'm all for using words other than 'spunky'. In the UK, spunk is slang for semen :/
When I first saw it everywhere, it was kind of hilarious. Now it makes me cringe, especially when I see...

Of course it's ok. Most common English names have roots in other languages/cultures anyway, especially in Greek. I think it'd only be offensive if you decided to mess with it- change the spelling,...

Judging by US stats and the number of times it gets mentioned on NB, I think Audrey may still be on the rise over the pond.
No, I agree. It does feel dated here. Personally, I think the woman...

Wow, kudos to the people who have 50 with middles. There are barely 10 girl names I really like.
WEZ-lee. Never heard it with a soft 's' sound before.
Perhaps there's a device issue- are you on your phone or a tablet? I'm on a laptop and the list creation feature is working fine for me.
My one tip for lists would be to put in names...

I prefer Tallulah of the 3. I think it flows best with Diane as the middle name, and I don't really like the similar endings of Lilia & Stella or Lilias and Alice.
Stella, Alice and...
This was my first association too. Did you study it in GCSE Geography? :p
Kobi/Kobe is too tied to the earthquake in my mind. I'd go with Coby.

The green online button usually stays on for a good few minutes after you've logged out. Had you recently logged out when you were browsing as a guest? Or could you still have been logged in?...

There are a couple of responses I dislike:
"Don't use it, it's too popular"- assuming everyone hates popular names and popularity automatically taints a name.
"It would be very weird if you...

Never leaving the top 50 is an odd way of judging style. By that logic, solid classics such as George, Alexander, Catherine, Anne, John, Alice, Samuel, Edward and Joseph, among many others, could not...

I like Emily too, but people are allowed their own opinions, no matter how much we disagree with them. Each to his own and all that. Though, I find the opinion that a name is 'boring' usually goes...
