It depends on what kind of character you're built, as to whether the name fits. A consonant-heavy name like Violet Hartley will need a hefty character to hold up to it. Conversely, you could have...

Unless the focus of narration shifts from your protagonist to any of these online friends, just identify them by their screennames. They're minor, so they don't merit formal names unless they play a...
It's a color. A horrible, bland, boring color that most men cannot identify. I think you'll get a lot of confusion and misspellings, with people thinking the name is supposed to be Maeve or Maude....
Isaac Dante "Zac" - Nice. Not a big fan of Dante, but it works with Isaac.
Jacen/Jasen/Jayson/Jason Owen "Jace" - The only spelling I like is Jason. The rest look silly. Jason Owen is odd. Too many...
I'm not the best at making combos, but I love your list with a few exceptions: not a fan of Finn, Mason, Palin, or Henley. They're just NMS, but the other names are great. You've got a great start!

So this isn't really baby-name related, but it is about a name. DH's new boss invited us over to have dinner with him and his wife. Boss' wife is Puerto Rican. Her name is Hecseliz. Does anyone know...
It's a less common version of the Eastern European "Anya", but very pretty. One of my great-aunts was name Anja. I love Anna and all its ethnic variations.
Haha! I know exactly which novel you're talking about. I must have read that one a hundred times when I was younger. Personally, because of the connection to the novel, I wouldn't use it. It's not a...
My favorites from your list:
Any "rules" are the ones you (and your partner, you've got one) decide upon. You make the decision as to what restrictions or boundaries you want to have when choosing a name. In our case, these are...
Lisbett (or Lizbett or Lisbeth or Lisabeth, etc, there are many variations) is a common way to spell Elizabeth in Dutch, although usually spelled Liesbet or Lijsbeth. It was a common nickname in the...

Are you located in the US? If so, I'd think very hard about that name, as it's a political name almost exclusively associated with conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh. If you're not concerned about...
Elsie Rose - cute
Chester James - eh
Florence Ivy - eh
William George - ok
Phoebe June - love it
Percy Louis - ok
Edith Mae - nice
Cecil Moses - haha. Funny.
Beatrice Anne - pretty
1) Jessica Rachel - Love Rachel, hate Jessica
2) Rebeckah Jayne - prefer spelling Rebekah. The "ck" is redundant and trying too hard to be "yoo-neek". Dislike Jayne.
3) Aaliyah Grace (Aaliyah is...
I said most of them as they're spelled. Honestly, they're all really bad, especially Zailyn, Zarlyn, Zaniel, and Zarson. Truly awful.

Children don't have to take their father's name. They can have whatever last name you want to give them. A friend of mine kept her maiden name upon marriage because of her established profession, and...
For my style, yes, these names are way too weird. As a random person encountering these names on a resume or class list in the future, I'd probably raise my eyebrows and more often than not look...

Pull up the US Social Security name list for 2011 (or baby name list for your respective country if you don't want the US). Print up two copies of say, the top 250 names. You get the green...
Amos - nice
Arlo - NMS
Aven - NMS
Augustine - eh. Not a fan of the August names, regardless of what famous people wore them
Camden - No
Declan - No
Emmett - Nice
Evren - ??

You can change your FB name to include a nickname or maiden name in parentheses. Ex: Juliana (Julie) Smith-Jones. You're limited in how often you can make name changes on FB, so do a quick search in...
Good list from pp. I'd add bottles, nipples, cleaning supplies, etc if you opt for formula over breastfeeding. I just found a great deal at our local baby supply store on a whole mess of bottles and...

I love this name, and Georgie for a nickname is adorable! (Definitely one, if the only, male nickname I like on females.)
If Bee is a girl, we've decided on Abigail for her first name (yay! I was terrified DH would veto it, and I couldn't make myself like any other first name for a girl.) Now, we need a middle name....
This is a board for sharing names and combos. You certainly wouldn't look silly sharing combos that you like - that's the whole purpose this site is even here. :) Remember, no one "owns" a name or a...

Most people probably hear the noun "zephyr" and thus associate it with its common-day definition, rather than its Greek origins and history. Chances are most people probably don't even know its...
