I would, yes, but practically I'm not sure it would make all that much difference. If he introduced himself as Drew it's not like I would start calling him Andrew. I would ask 'Is that short for...
April, nice to hear how things are going! I'm glad that everyone's healthy and reasonably happy. I can imagine that 'overwhelming' is a bit of an understatement for first-time parents caring for...

Except that OP said preferably no names beginning with J?
I don't speak Portuguese or Spanish, so I might be way out, but would Victor work? It has always seemed to me to be one of the most...
Well I suppose there's always Wilbert. It's not one of my favourite names but it is like a blend of William and Robert (and probably the only one), and the nickname Will is modern and handsome....
Mine are Is0bel R0sal1e and N1gel Herbərt.
His are M@rgrét and Gµðmµndµr K@rl.
Hope you can read that OK, didn't want it to be googleable.
I didn't crave anything, apart from things I would normally want, but I went right off a lot of things during my sicky phase (roughly 5-6 weeks to 13 weeks), at the peak of which I was vomiting every...
Thanks guys, it is good to know that it might be possible to just stick pads to the inside of tight vest tops (I have a load of those already which I use as sort of my version of a bra - or I did...
Mmm well, Biblical names are generally Greek or Hebrew in origin, and Gaelic is a completely different language family. You can find Scottish Gaelic versions of Biblical names, like the ones PP...
For girls there are plenty that mean 'star', e.g.:
Stella (or variants Estella/Estelle)
Esther (possibly meaning star, but it's not certain)
For boys Cosmo comes to mind, which...
You could well be right! It sounds very plausible.
In the UK, it's a slang for a cigarette so in English I find it very off-putting. You would write the slang as ciggy, but it's the same sound. Is that not used in the US? If not, no worries I...
In my accent, it is exactly the same as the word junior.
Here's something I've been wondering about, and I wondered if anyone had any answers. So I never wear a bra, and I never have, apart from a brief experimental phase in my teenage...

I knew a Scott who had a brother named Ross, and I always thought they were a pretty good match namewise.
Not Elliott, anyway! I'm 26, although I didn't go to the poshest school in the world, the sorts of names we would have considered posh are basically the same ones I'd consider posh today.
My instinct says that this is not legit, or that if it makes a difference it would be so small as to be basically insignificant - but if it's been researched using scientific methods I'd be...

I've been meaning to get around to replying to you all, wanted to do it properly! Thank you all for your responses :)
@whitegardenia - Thank you for your kind comment! My boyfriend said the other...
When is he a paragon of virtue exactly? I've read both the Eddas many times and I can't think what story you could be referring to. He's often very clever, and he's often witty, and certainly can be...

It's definitely true, trust me. You have to understand our royal family - they have extremely many restrictions placed on every single part of their lives, and this is more true the more likely they...

Unless I have misunderstood OP, I think the girl called Rosie is her daughter's best friend, not the daughter of her best friend. Which is even more reason not to worry about it! Childhood...
Yeah, those are nice ones :)
Another one that I don't particularly like, but I find interesting, is the Mitford family:
It's definitely extremely politically charged. Aside from all that, I like the sound and find it a handsome name, but the negative associations are overwhelming. It's not a super popular country on...

Here's a small selection that I like :)
Rose / Rosa

I think Poppy, because although it does feel a bit nicknamey, it also feels like a full name. It's sweet, but it doesn't feel like it needs anything more.
I think Freya Rose or Freya Joy are best - the ones that have the same vowel sound as Freya I find a bit rhymey (Grace, Mae, Paige) and Blair just isn't my style, I only think of the Prime Minister.
