  1. Easter? First impressions? Too religious?

    Hey berries,

    I'm suddenly charmed by Easter for a girl. It feels bright and happy, and it passes the, "Would I like being named this myself?" test. I'd only use it if I had an April/Easter-time...

    I love Coralie. I'd be tempted to go with another gently French or "euro" feeling name. Ideas:

    Blythe
    Sylvie
    Adele
    Adelaide
    Genevieve
    Gwendolen
    Amalia/ Amelia
    Elodie

    Thanks @felicitysmoak! Cyrus is really growing on me. I don't dislike Pearl, either, but it also feels a little "retro" when we have no family connection to it.

    Ah, such a tough choice! My usual go to would be Rose (my screenname is not my first name), or Rosetta/Rosamund.

    Ramona is great, and I'm a firm believer that literally anything is OK as a middle name.

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