I don't find Mae any less substantial than Maeve, although I prefer the May spelling. I prefer Maeve as it has got more "character". Mae could always be used as a very natural nickname anyway.

Isolde Winter Icicle? ;) Sorry, can't help it, it's all a little 50 Shades of Fae and name-gamey. In saying that, I like Isolde, and love Olwen and Lucia. A combination of those three would be...
It is fantastic. The other two are lovely; I'd probably use one as a middle.

I'm no fan of occupational surnames. They're just so, um, meh and dreary. However, Baxter's ok.
Joel or Clementine.

Amanda and Melissa are tied for second.
Also, Ottilie, were you close with Greeneyedmom on another name board? You are like two peas in a pod. Your name lists and descriptions are so alike it is uncanny, although her childrens' names...
Villanelle, Bellicent? I recognize most of the others.
Is this supposed to go in name games, or is this the real deal? Are we roleplaying? 50 Shades of Faeries? I'm not here that often so color...
I'm picturing Sharon, nn Shaz.

I've seen it often online and only once IRL.
I'd advise anyone calling their girl the Welsh form of John, to perhaps give a less 'androgynous' middle name - it may be less annoying that way.
As far as surnames go, it's really one of the best ones.
I do like it.

Familial surname, most likely in the middle? I don't care. It's fine for either.
I am surprised that some think this thread is heated. It's very tame compared to discussions I've seen on other naming boards, where my opinion on this topic is quite unpopular. My opinion being: I...
No, but I cannot abide by terms like down-market and trashy - it's so disgustingly classist.
Lux is fine.
Given I've heard a few parents say almost exactly that, I'd disagree.

Threaten to go with Humperdinck or Bertha-Kitty.
Julian and Gillian
I like lots of historically unisex names e.g Christian.
As for what's happening now, names going furiously the one way (traditional boys names and mostly patronymic surnames used as girls' first...

I prefer a longer middle name with Molly.

There are very few names I find pretentious. Generally it's the parents reasoning for using some particular names that I find unbearably inflated. For example, mangling a decent name such as Jessica...
Not sure why Kenzie is on the list? It's Scottish masculine first name and interestingly ranked 89th for boys on the Scottish 2010 name list. I understand it's on a girl, but given the great mass of...
Do you often have multiple middle named people introduce themselves, or refer to themselves by their full moniker?

I've tried to respond three times now.
And seriously, I'd rather use the name of a historic and powerful royal female figure such as Melisande, Theodora or Eleanor.
Or, go with...
I love Olive.
Although, I'd personally not describe it as having spunk as that word is firmly in the realm of sexual slang to me. I'd say Olive had lots of character instead.

Given this was the original name of the fruit, not really I guess.
