I really loved this piece. Great stuff, and well done. I have a lot to say on this issue, but a lot has been touched on in other replies. I'll just add my two cents by saying that a balance in all...
I hope this doesn't get lost among the replies, but we will be trying to conceive starting in September. I know it will probably not be immediate, but must start somewhere! Just wanted to say hello,...

I absolutely think name taste reflects personality, and also who the parent hopes the child will be. An ultra conservative isn't going to like as many non-traditional names and vice versa.
Today I overheard the parents of two children, one about a 4-year-old girl and the other a boy of about 2 and a half, call them Beatrix and Michael. I thought that was a nice sibset.
What matters most to me is choosing a name I love. I don't want to be hearing, saying, seeing, and writing a name I'm not in love with for the rest of my life, family or not. It is what it is,...

I don't know if I've posted here before, but here goes...
1. Aubrey just makes my skin crawl, sorry!
3. Isabella (I like Isobel, though.)
5. Jaxson (Does not even bother...
Ruby is a 1940s bombshell! Or a little girl of the 2010s.
Thanks for the input, everybody. It's been helpful.
Good point. I really like the middle name idea. Perhaps more so than hyphenating. Thank you!
I haven't seen this post anywhere else, so apologies if this issue has been addressed before. For those with children, with children on the way, or trying to conceive: do your children have, or are...

Thanks for your replies. It is very much an interesting paradox.

I agree, wholeheartedly. You got it.
Callum Campbell looks and sounds great.
I do have to say I'm not in love with Stephen. Not because it's a bad name at all, but because it's so so so commonplace and as a result has become faceless and nondescript. Not all classics fit into...

I get the fashion thing. You're right - it's not always all about popularity. But I also submit that not everybody has a slew of friends and/or acquaintances their own age whose names are indicative...

I don't understand the logic behind the idea that certain names aren't as viable on newborns because they're seen as adult names. I understand that certain names as time goes by are more associated...

The real question should be, "Why is everything unisex to Nameberry?" ;)
But, really, everyone is right. Sexism. But I posit that it's ALSO sexist to continually imply that things traditionally...

Pretentious and trying too hard to be different and original. Just another name that would say, "SEE? MY child is NOT another Aidan or Jacob. SEE?"
It does. Haha. But there are worse names for sure, especially these days. I do feel like this is one of those names that would only work on an American child, regardless.
Thanks for all your input! I'm by no means set in stone about it, but it's on my list now. We'll see if DH likes it.
Nobody is posting to this, so I will. I'm not Jewish, but my husband (David's) adoptive family is. I like a lot of Hebrew names, and many of them have become mainstream. I love Joshua, Aaron, Rachel,...
