  1. Lord of the Rings/Nerdy middles? Because I'm a massive dork.

    I have a hard time finding boy names I really love, and an even harder time matching them up with middles.

    I love the fn August, and as a bit of a joke about how nerdy I am, joked to a friend that...

    Talk to me about Blythe

    Clementine Blythe has been my top name for a couple years now, but lately I'm considering Blythe as a first. I love the meaning (Joyous, kind, cheerful, pleasant), and I love that it's less common...
  3. Scarlett and Rose...too much on siblings?

    Just curious as to what people think about this. Most people think Rose = flower, but since Rose is also a shade of red, would it be weird to have a Rose and a Scarlett as sisters? Am I reading too...

    Jrue

    Today I encountered a little boy named Jrue. Pronounced Drew. His brothers had normal j-names, so I assume the parents wanted to keep with a theme and tried to get creative.

    Is this an actual name...

    Thanks, guys!

    I'm open to switching Edmund and Rosa to Edwin/Eswin/Oswin and Rosamund. I like both girl options equally, but I tend to like Edmund slightly more than the other boy options.

    I agree that Indie works better on a girl. And the only actual River I know is a girl, so I tend to view that one as a girl's name as well.

    Oswin?

    Tell me your thoughts on this name. How useable, what impressions it gives you, what assumptions you'd make on hearing the name, etc. I'd really like honest, detailed answers, if possible. I like...
  14. Can Xanthe and Blythe work on sisters?

    I like the way they sound together, but the fact that they both end in "the" and are pronounced differently, would that cause issues?

    I know they're very different styles, but what I'm most...

    I greatly prefer Josie. Shelby and Rylie both sound really mid-90s to me.

    If Lynn is special to you, then I say keep it, but if you're open to other middles for Josie, I would suggest Kit. It's...

    I absolutely dare!

    For me it all depends on my perceived respectability of the thing the name came from. Katniss and Renesmee are from fad books, and while the Hunger Games are at least good,...
