    Regarding food, also, if you have a freezer, use it! It is often much cheaper to buy/cook in bulk. Cooking for one is a ridiculous drain on finances in my experience (as well as being...

    Nameberry says that Emil "has a slightly unfriendly feel". I really don't see this myself, to me it seems like a very soft, gentle and, yes, friendly name. It's wildly subjective, though, people are...

    People would do that for sure, haha! I already see this sort of thing sometimes on Facebook, people making their names 'cooler'. It's really funny if you are familiar with accents and special...

    If the reason you 'have' to use Christian is because it's a family name that's very important to you or your significant other (which I understand), wouldn't it be all right to have it in the middle...

    I wouldn't do it, no. There are plenty of people in Iceland with names like Jón Jónsson, Jóna Jónsdóttir etc, and I've always found it pretty silly. If it were a form of John that is slightly more...

    It's also basically impossible to define 'maturity'. At what point do you become mature? I can look back on my teenage years and see that there was a lot of stuff I got wrong when I was thinking...

    Oops, sorry, cross-posted.

    1. Yes, of course. This is a sensible and rational sort of discrimination, because age has very real effects on ability to do/handle certain things. The law discriminates based on age (e.g. where I...

    I heard that Heath Ledger in his turn was named after Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights, so in a roundabout way it would be like a double reference ;)

    I think that really depends where you live. Here in Iceland we have 6 months, and it is expected to take around 2-3 months. Nobody would even ask about the name until the baby was at least a month...

    1. Yes. I am more of a fan of literature than the visual arts, but I also like paintings. I don't know who is my favourite, perhaps J.M.W. Turner.

    Whoops cross-posted. I'll answer yours too :)

    1. No. Because I don't believe in the supernatural, simple as that. I don't see any evidence for it.

    I kind of like Siegfried! I don't think it's difficult to say (although I might not be saying it in 100% German style). Very Wagnerian! It also reminds me first of the poet Siegfried Sassoon (whose...
