Our thread has kind of petered off, so I'm bumping it up a little. How is everyone doing this week?
My last few days have been beyond frustrating. As you saw, I had my blood test a week ago and...

I've just started Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler. I saw it at the library on display and picked it up. So far, I'm enjoying it.

I quite like Douglas. I agree with everyone above in that Doug sounds a bit like a dad name, but Douglas and Gus are definitely wearable. I think it's kind of refreshing, actually!
Glad that you have settled on a name. I didn't mean to come across as harshly critical, if that's how you read my comments. I prefer to hear all the weird associations with names, and then choose...

Francesca Pearl would be my favourite, followed by Edith Pearl. I love the idea of Theo, Gus, and Frankie. So sweet!
I don't think it's an issue. The OJ Simpson fiasco was 20 years ago (yikes, I'm old!) and while I might think of orange juice if you wrote out OJ, I don't think those are bad initials by any means,...
@Kliendavis - That is devastating. I am so sorry. I don't know if you are still reading, but please know you're in my thoughts.
I had my blood test today and it was negative, so now I just...
Emerson for sure. I don't care for Rylan anyway, but it seems more 'boy' than Emerson, which is pretty much unisex now. Plus Emerson has the options of Emme and Emma as nicknames.
Okay, sounds fun! I'd never go with three middles, but what the heck. Most of these are just off the top of my head...
RDE - Rhiannon Diana Elizabeth
LOVE - Lillian Odile Veronica Eve
I voted for Nora, as I love the simple grace, but my absolute top favourite -ora name is Theodora.

It's a gorgeous name. I just heard of Iggy Azalea recently, but I wouldn't necessarily associate Azalea with her. I think it's still a usable name.

I see them both as usable. Astrid is a lovely Scandinavian name. Poppy is not my style - a bit too cutesy for my taste - but that certainly doesn't render it unusable. It seems the people on...
I voted for Leila Joy, but Leila Grace is lovely too. I love Noelle, but Leila Noelle Calloway is a bit heavy on the Ls.
@Kliendavis - Oh, how nerve-wracking! I hope all is well. Please update us. My thoughts are with you.
I like Marley, but to be honest, if I heard Marleau in passing, I would probably think you said Merlot and had named your son after wine. As a French speaker, I have actually never heard of Marleau...

I usually hazard a guess based on the the surname, as I've worked with a Loo-chee-uh and have known a Loo-see-uh. If I have no clues, my default is Loo-see-uh.
Hope everyone had a great week!
@luckylocket - Congrats on setting a wedding date! I can imagine it would be difficult to have a wedding dress and then have to buy a new one. I hope you get...
Congratulations! Eva Celeste is a gorgeous name. Wishing your family all the best. :)
I used to do that all the time when I was younger (like until the middle of high school maybe). I would draw pictures of the characters, make family trees, and imagine their life stories. Once or...
This is one of those names that I always feel like I'm spelling incorrectly, no matter how I write it, so I'm glad to know there is more than one legit spelling. :P To make matters more complicated,...
What are everyone's top 20 names for a girl?
I'm not qualified to say what a good diet is, but I'm glad you're not starving yourself and seem to have a plan to eat regularly, and cutting soda is always good for your health. Based on the stats...
I adore Cassandra and love to see it being used. I would also go with a short middle name, maybe one syllable or at most two:
@Kliendavis - CONGRATULATIONS!!!! That's fantastic news! It feels like we've had so much sad stuff going on here lately; I'm thrilled to see you have some amazing happen. Best of luck!
