Lennox is classic!
Poll: Avalon Blythe is lovely.
Avalon Blythe is lovely.
I love names and nameberry. When I was little, I wanted to have 15 girls, all from different dads so they'd look different!
Then I grew up and learned about overpopulation.
So I wanted two...
I'm fascinated by people's responses. :)
I don't think there's much logic to which gender I associate with which month or day name, but I'm looking to see if there is any.
It does seem that...
I noticed how many of these names you wrote boy and girl on, whereas I think of them as one or the other.
It may have to do with synesthesia (which I am not sure how to spell). Tuesday for me is...
I love month and day names and have a strong sense of which I like for males and which I like for females. I'm not sure why. It isn't logical or provable.
Just curious to know how others feel in...
I really loathe the name Everly, sorry. It sounds permanently trendy.
I do love Evelyn, Evadne, Evanthe, Evangeline, Eve, all of which also lead to the darling Evie.
Genevieve sounds much...
Elsa and Gretel are lovely. I would never let Disney get in my way.
Carolyne is still pronounced Carolyn, just with a superfluous "e", so if you want the Caro-line sound, you'd best spell it that way.
Maxton sounds to me like a clothing franchise for teens: like TJ Maxx or something commercial.
Maxen is more name-ish, so I prefer it.
My true favorites though are Maxwell (Welby) and Maxfield...
Sirius is a cool word on paper, but said aloud it just sounds like serious.
William is fine.
Maverick is not my favorite - I prefer Meteor and Mojave and Madigan - but it is OK.
Dean is fine.

I like Perrin too, though Perry seems more cuddly. Percy too.
Fenton for a male and Fenella for a female are two of my most favorite names!
I like Fenton Hale myself.
I prefer Jacoby or Jacobi -- Jacobus sounds like a body part to me.

No love for Kermit and Plenty. :)
I know Plenty could sound like a porn star name, but to me it sounds New England colonial like Clemency or Mercy.
And Kermit, well, I guess I still love the...

Ah well, one person's creepy is another person's cuddly! :)

I love Timothy, Tim, Timmy, Timmaeus (sp?), Mortimer, Septimus, Timon, all of them! :)
I far prefer Mabel. Mabel is classic!
Eva is fine, but way overused.
They sound quite different to me. Eva sounds like a seductress to me whereas Mabel sounds like a comfortable granny or a...

I am sorry to say but none. I teach and if I never meet another Katelyn (etc.) it will be too soon.
I still like Katherine and Katharine, as well as Kitty and Kyra and Keziah, but beyond those, K...

Curious to see which if any of these you find charming for males, and equally for little boys, men, and old men.
Oops, I forgot Stuart, which I find very charming.
Eva is massively overused where I live so I prefer Evangeline. And my very favorite is Evadne nn Evie.
Sure, I know of Marvel comics, but I also know that Marvel was a female name long before the comics began (as evidenced by my late great great aunt Marvel!).
I am 52 and have no intention of naming any human being these names. What I asked for was how you picture each of these names (age, type of person, etc.).
Personally I would welcome any of these...

I dislike Claudia heartily, though I love Clyde etc. for a boy.
Felicity is lovely.
Georgina is OK, a little old ladyish.
It is absolutely lovely!
