I'm aware of Jo from LW. I did realise that but it's not distinctive enough a name, nor will their personalities or stories be similar enough for it to become a problem, I think. I would like to be...
I haven't posted on Nameberry for a long time and, for some reason, I've never posted on this board before even though I like to write a lot. Shame on me.
I'm kicking around ideas for a story set...
Charles Barkley makes me think of Gnarls Barkley but Charlie is fine.
If they're a bit snobby and upper class they could have some quite fancy middle names that are after older relatives.
In Astrology, air represents the mind so a sword seems appropriate in representing the idea of a sharp intellect or a perceptive mind.
Sword of Aeris (latin for air)
Wand of Animus (latin for...

If we're just going for nicknames then how about...
Because Emmaleen just ends up sounding like Emily, so what's the point?
The only unusual ones I haven't noticed already posted are Valley, Vale, Glade and Haven.
All of those names are perfectly fine and people won't think of any of the associations. Names like Liam or Andrew have been used for years and years without problems. The only ones I could see them...

Audrey- Auds?? - Yes
Sebastian- Ash?? - No. It doesn't make an Ash sound at all.
James- Jem?? - It works closely enough but I don't personally like it.

Ann - Andrew, Andy
Jean - ? Apart from John I've got nothing.
Marie - Marshall, Marvin
Patricia - Patrice
It's a bit of a stretch to me since they don't sound alike except for the B at the start. My family has a lot of sons and fathers with the same name and we don't use any nicknames but there's never...

Dinah, Lilah, Diana, Christina, Fiona, Maria/Marie, Amelia/Amelie, Marina, Florencia, Karina, Irina, Katrina, Nerida
The list is practically endless.
I don't mind it. Of course it's hard to not pronounce it in my head the same way as the city. Actually it's hard not to think of the city at all (was that where he was conceived? lol) but as far as...
The spelling looks like sooree to me and that's the only way I've heard it pronounced.
I never believed in Santa. Partly because there was no one to babysit me a lot of the time so I was taken Christmas shopping for other people's presents with my mum. It was still fun to pretend and...
I'm going to try a few more boyish names for you. No A endings if I can help it.
I don't like forced nns and Posy is one of them for me (unless it's short for Mariposa, like you said). To me it's like saying, "This is our daughter Ashley, but we call her Kate." The two names...

Working in a UK school it is clear that UK kids are much like your description of American kids nowadays. All the teachers who have been in education for many years have noticed a marked drop in...
