    I love Douglas. I do see it as a mid-century name, but that's actually part of its appeal for me. It's not a name everyone will love (if there is such a name), but think it has the potential to make...

    Middle names don't serve much purpose in a story, if any, so I don't think they're that important. That said, there's nothing wrong with figuring out your characters' middle names as part of your...

    That's my problem, too. Even though I know Edna isn't a feminization, I'm still seeing Ed and Joseph.

    I feel bad about my comment because I'm usually quick to champion Miriam. I think it's gorgeous, and I love its history. I think my issue here is simply the contrast; when looking at the 8 names...

    They're way too matchy for me, more because they're both botanical names and both colors than because of the near-anagram.

    My real name is spelled with one L, but the variant with two has always been far more common in the U.S. As a result, my name is often misspelled.

    It's not that big a deal, but it has made me a...

    Most favorite: Olympia, with Millicent as a close second.
    Least favorite: Lilith. I also dislike Birdie as a given name, but it's an adorable nickname.
