I'm having a really hard time renaming this main character. In my head, she's been one name for years. But I've decided to "save" the masculine version of her name for another story,...

Not offensive. In fact, many Native Americans prefer the term "Indian", because the term Native American is kind of a small, superficial effort to make up for genocide and appropriation and... yes. ...
Hey, now. I would take morally gray non-doormat book!Eponine over musical!Eponine any day. ;) Even if she did do some pretty shady things.
But yeah, as pretty as the name is, I think it ties too...

Hadley is my absolute favorite, and I would consider using it for my own child someday. However, I agree with Lori--I like it more with Mae. Hadley Mae would be adorable.
Renee would be fine...

Yikes! My mother wouldn't name her youngest child Camilla when suggest because of the negative connotation. I can't imagine William even considering that one.

I've gotta say, I kind of hope they have a baby girl. I think that the law that boys are first in line even if they have older sisters was recently struck down, or is (hopefully) going to be. That...

It'll be super traditional--there'll probably be at least four names. (Which is fine.) If it's a girl, I'm sure Diana and Elizabeth will be included. If it's a boy--look for Charles, William,...

I like: Sofia (Sofie), Caroline (that's my name!), Victoria, Olivia, Malou, Luna, Katrine
I kind of like Mathilde, but here (in America) it would be mispronounced as Matilda. Which I dislike.
A) It's not like that many people watch the show--it's the CW's highest rated series, but... I mean, the CW kept Gossip Girl around for six seasons and that thing barely brings in a million viewers...

Thanks everyone! I like Gray, Graham, and Rafe a lot.
@ akky3210: I really like the idea of the name--if I choose a nature/color name--being something that "normal" people give him, while wolves...

My youngest sister (age five) has a Beta fish named Twilight Sparkle (she's a big fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic_
My other sister (age thirteen) has a black cat named Salem. I named...

I'm writing a Little Red Riding Hood retelling that's closer to The Company of Wolves (if y'all are familiar with that exceptionally great movie) than, say, the recent adaptation (the...
I vastly prefer Chloe Elizabeth, to be quite honest. I'm pretty young myself, and I have a sister in middle school... Eleanor is very "old" in my honest opinion. It brings Eleanor Roosevelt to...

I like Eloise Mae. I love both names--in fact, I'm thinking of someday using Mae as a middle name myself. (It was my late grandmother's middle name, but I like it even without that. It really...

I notice because I'm a huge GWTW fan, but I love them together. Who cares? If people do notice and take the time to dislike it, they're clearly on the judgmental side. (I'm talking about the sorts...
I like Gable, nicknamed Gabe. It doesn't need to be a nickname itself, imo. Think of Clark Gable! Rhett Butler! So masculine.
It wouldn't work as a name today. Maybe in a few centuries, but not today. There's simply too much association with the book/play. There wouldn't be enough of your mark on it, I think.

I love Bronte, and would consider it someday. It might end up working out better as a middle name (a la Austen, another author surname that I would consider using a little girl's middle name), but I...

I like both--especially October--but don't like the nicknames. I get the thought process behind them, but here's why I couldn't do it:
A) They are, to my ears at least, very masculine names. ...
I LOVE that book. It really humanizes the duchess. The good thing is that she's not too well-known, despite the movie and the book, so people won't associate some of the sadder parts of her life...

My little sister's best friend recently became a big sister to a brother named Matrix Lee.
Her name is conventional, as is her mother's. However, she has another sister named Heaven, which,...
I've been wondering about this one. Just for fun/the far future.
I've always hated Georgiana, though Georgiana Cavendish (the Duchess of Devonshire) has long been one of my favorite historical...

Amelia -- In my opinion, it really is way too popular. It's also very much like the other extremely popular names, Emily and Emma. Personally, I don't get the appeal; it's pretty, but not worth the...

People typically think of Mary Magdalene with this name, and as a lifelong church attendee, I'm pretty sure both are pronounced Mag-duh-lin. Magdalena is the one that changed the pronunciation.
