    Yep, I am excited to get started again! But a bit more cautious than before. I know my fertility is fine because I did get pregnant immediately after I stopped the pills in April - I didn't have a...

  4. If you've already made up your mind, why did you...

    If you've already made up your mind, why did you ask? You've heard from at least three English members that we would find it disrespectful, especially considering it would be done knowingly rather...

    No, it's only as simple as that if you know for sure exactly when you ovulated. As sarahmezz said, if you're 18 days past ovulation and getting negatives, then you're almost definitely not pregnant....

    Sure it's possible, but it's not correct. It doesn't matter whether you spell it with a y or an i, this is a traditional English name derived from a sort of plant. It is not pronounced with a bree...

    Erm, yeah this might not apply to your country, but at the university I most recently graduated from full-time postgraduate study was defined as 60 credits per academic year, generally 30 credits per...

    Although we actually don't spell it the same, oh how I feel your pain. Like, wtf is Aby supposed to be. It wouldn't even be pronounced the same according to the laws of English phonics! And an abbey...

    Yeah it's definitely trendy and 'of its time', and I think it will date quite noticeably. But not in a bad way, if you don't mind that sort of thing. It's a decent name, I definitely wouldn't...

    My full name is never misspelled (although I have seen other spellings, mine is the standard and, I would argue, correct version). But the shortened version that I go by is misspelled all the bloody...

    Nah, there are a lot of names that make me laugh/snort/sigh/roll my eyes. The only one I find genuinely irritating is when people use my surname as a first name (which they do a lot). I know this is...
  13. Well, you don't need to worry about Thorin...

    Well, you don't need to worry about Thorin anyway. It has nothing to do with Thor/Þórr. It is from the verb að þora, meaning to dare, to be brave enough to. So Þorinn just means 'brave, daring'.

    I googled it. It's the name of a Scottish island and means 'tidal island', (Old Gaelic name: Arthraigh). According to Wikipedia.

    So it's an unconventional place-name name.

    Behind the Name is indeed great for accuracy. But, in the case of Icelandic, it is not particularly extensive. It is a lot more extensive than Nameberry, but there are still big gaps. Nordicnames.de...
