Yeah, being an introvert can be rough. People do tend to conflate it with lack of social skills, and for the most part extroversion is seen as default/normal while introversion is seen as abnormal.

I've only read A Farewell to Arms and personally I was not a fan (I agree with the guy in Silver Linings Playbook!) I feel like Hemingway is a very hit or miss kind of writer; you either love his...

Huh. In my area Violet is #3 for girls and Alexis is #10 (are we not done with Alexis yet? It's so nineties.) Also surprised to see that Landon is the #1 boys name around here. I haven't met/heard of...

Obviously you're not alone---plenty of people love trendy names, or they wouldn't be trendy! You're definitely a minority here on NB, though. And unfortunately that means having to deal with people...
Mine basically involve using all my C- names together with no other first initials to balance them out. So, some combination of Cleo, Cosima, Coraline, and Celia. Cosima and Coraline in particular--I...
Same. Seems like I get error 503 every 10 minutes or so.

Currently I'm struggling with my Ismay combo (shameless plug: http://nameberry.com/nametalk/threads/175825-Combo-Help-Ismay) but my most enduring combo is Viola Belphoebe Alice.

I love Julian Aubrey and Julian Wesley! Wesley wins by a tiny hair.
@goodkarmavt and rie, thanks!
Looks like people like my original combo best. Argh, I still can't seem to settle on one I like better than the others.
I agree with aym. It's possible to enforce Coraline-not-Cora to a degree, but not to control it completely, and of course your daughter's own preference will eventually play into all that. For what...
1. Oh, that's tough. It would either be some kind of pasta or my regular order at Chipotle (burrito with rice, black beans, sofritas, lettuce and their mild salsa/pico thing.)
2. Argh, I can't...
Usable? Yep. Maybe not in the next ~6 months or so unless you don't mind being really, really tied to the Hobbit character, but it sounds like that's not an issue for you.
Middle names...hmm. I'd...
I think there was an article--maybe in the Berry Juice section? about exactly this a while back. Like, they analyzed tons of names over the last century and basically compiled statistics that proved...

Interesting. I had some vague inkling that Saoirse was tacky, and of course Paddy. Ryan and Aiden make sense. The others I never would have guessed! Thanks for sharing, it's always good to know how...
I like quite a few C/K names! They're all hard C sounds except for Celia and Cilla.

Simone Ines - I really like both names individually, especially Ines. Together, though, the flow is off thanks to the awkwardly placed N sounds, and the names have such a similar vibe that pairing...
Poll: Combo Help: Ismay
I've never been particularly good at making (and locking in) combos with my own favorites, but I've decided to give it a shot. At the moment, I'm struggling with my Ismay combo. I've had Ismay Aviva...

I voted for Magnolia and Theodore, but my ideal combination would be Magnolia Adele and Xavier Solomon. Xavier Rafferty just has terrible flow! The flow of Magnolia Adele isn't ideal either, but...

The only one I can think of that kind of fits in all those cultures is Sonia/Sonja/Sonya.

@Ash, Susannah's not in the bible itself--she's in the apocryphal gospel story of Susannah and the Elders, where she's wrongly accused of infidelity after a bunch of creepy old men spy on her while...
Odelina is lovely and doesn't have the 'omelette' issue, so that would be my choice. Odelina Fable is especially nice. I'm also a fan of Odelia/Odilia.
They're both great with your girls' names--I think Guinevere pairs especially well with Elowen while Lavinia goes wonderfully with Rosamund.
Personally, while they're both excellent, I'd opt for...
