Hi all, I'm not very active on the boards but thought I'd drop in. I'm due June 15th with my third (though my babies tend to be a little on the later side, so more like June 21st-22nd). Congrats on...

Sure, why not? Boys' names are used on girls all the time and names considered feminine by our linguistics are becoming more popular for boys as well. Many people care less about gendering names. Not...

My cousin married a woman with the same name as me. I have an uncle and cousin (father-son pairs) on each side named Christopher. One of them is married to a Christina. A cousin on each side named a...

Resurrecting this forgotten thread to add my second - Poet Wildflower Hecate (girl).
Nameberry and Behind the Name (which I find fairly trustworthy with etymology) both list Beverly's meaning as "beaver stream," more or less. I've seen this elsewhere as well. However, most English...
Guinevere is too fanciful and sweet for me. I love the clunkiness of Gwendolen. It would be a serious contender for my next girl if there was an easy nickname I liked for it (can't stand Gwen,...
I prefer the pronunciation CLAH-ruh but here in the northeast US most say CLARE-uh.

Junie Lane is cute and I love Natalie June Snow

Congratulations. Gosh, I love your kids' names, especially Foster.
I love making and reading lists and would like to see the list features updated. It would be nice to see what ratings lists have and for the owner of the list to see who has liked or disliked it....
Exie is a Victorian-era nickname for Alexandra. I love it as a nickname for Echo.

Um, my entire list? Lol. I'll leave you with my most recent additions and a choice few.
Turn the names of the original 150 pokemon into usable names (eg Ivysaur to Ivy, Diglet becomes Digby). Have fun!
