    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.

    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.

    Need a Name for the Big Bad Wolf

    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 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.

    Georgiana?

    I've been wondering about this one. Just for fun/the far future.

    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.
