Haha yes, strike this definitely. Naming your child after a brand of contraception would certainly send quite the signal as to whether you planned to have her or not! One exception is maybe Yasmin,...
Me too! Somerset to be more specific.
Yes, they are both pronounced exactly as written. Their simplicity is a big plus for me! Svala is the Icelandic word for swallow (the bird) and Elva comes from a word for river, so they are both...
If I have a daughter, and I get my own way (which you know, maybe I won't, but let's imagine I do), I feel I would be most likely to name her Svala. This is my number 1 girl's name.
Using my long list:
1) most unusual - Snjólfur
2) most traditional - Jóhann
3) most urbane & sophisticated - Ingimar
4) most rustic & outdoorsy - Bjartur
5) sounds the most modern - Felix
Haha, yeah, once he was awake he was more enthusiastic. I guess it's a pretty bewildering way to be woken up, though. We are trying to stay positive and not think too much about last time, but I...
Yeps, pregnant again! Fingers crossed it works out this time, come on tiny ball of dividing cells.
My boyfriend's initial response: Mmmpphh.
Although he was basically asleep when I told him!

This snippet from Peep Show basically sums up my feelings about Ian: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtyiHYnnJD4
Ian is a serious dad name in the UK. It's nice enough, and I'm sure it has a better...
I think Evander is a great substitution for Alexander in this case! It sounds perfect to me.
I love Timothy! It's very handsome. I have a few dear friends named Tim (technically Timothy, but I think basically all adult Timothys are called Tim), and so for me it just feels like a very...
My sister-in-law's youngest boy is the result of an IUD failure. I wouldn't rely on one myself after hearing that story (although I don't think she was using the hormonal kind, which I imagine is...
Not myself, but my boyfriend is a programmer. If you enjoy HTML, I just wanted to strongly encourage you to think about studying computer science at university and learning some proper programming...
I'm sorry about your grandmother, lcd. Maeve Josephine is beautiful, I hope you get the chance to use it.
Well, I'm on day 30 and still no sign of a period. I know I should just go get a test, but...

Mackenzie, definitely. It's not my favourite name out of the bunch - in fact it's my least favourite. But it does sound great with John.
John Ross I want to like but two one-syllable names in a...

I think they all sound great together! All one syllable, stylish and your girl names are traditional enough that I don't think anyone will assume that Quinn is a girl. Although I see what you mean, I...
I think of Brighton, which is a lovely seaside town, Britain's gay capital, very nice place. It doesn't seem like a human name to me, though.
Do you have any connection with Brighton?
I think it slightly depends on what your surname is? Can you give us a general idea (starting sound, number of syllables, etc)?
But just going from the first and middle, I picked Ivor Benedict....

That makes no sense. X the name of the actual letter is pronounced eks, but the letter in English usually just denotes 'ks'. No matter what your accent, I highly doubt you are pronouncing words like...
Well, if you want to make it accurate, don't go all namenerd on it. There was a lot less variety in first names than there is nowadays and most of them were extremely standard. Make sure about a...
As luck would have it, we do indeed live in Iceland! However, I am English and all my family is living in England so we'd be over there fairly regularly and our children would have, I certainly hope,...
So, Asche, did it make an appearance? I guess if it did that would have got you off the hook for drinking at the wedding, right? I hope it didn't though :)
My period is due in the next few days,...
I've been thinking about Erlingur recently. It is pronounced basically like AIR-linger, and I believe exists in the Scandinavian countries as Erling. It means 'descendant of the earl/jarl'.
Well, I wouldn't say that Mackenzie is a Scottish girls' name, it's a surname directly indicating maleness. As a girls' name it has a decidedly American feel.
Try this site.
These are some nice...
