    Hi! I understand your impulse. Your surname sounds relatively easy to find first names for, too.

    Poll: Bad Association with name Rosie?

    Hi all,

    Just to be clear, Rosie is part of my screen name because it's been my most consistent favorite girl's name for years.

    That said, it recently came to my attention that for a lot of...

    What about Wilhelmina Clinton? Or Wilhelmina Clint? I tend to be a bit strict about honor names (unless you're Jewish/Ashkenazi) and really think it's best to keep as close to the original as...

    How terrible. My condolences to her family and friends, if they're reading this.

    Congrats!

    Both Lillie and Elodie are cute, but Lillie maybe goes better with Josie in terms of style. Josie is sort of down-home, country, vintage, cozy, and timeless, whereas Elodie is more...
