    I don't think they're tongue-twisters exactly, but I do find them rather unfortunately hissy and slurred because of the short, close-together "s" sounds... I would personally pair Sun/Sohn with names...

    I've always thought Imogen, while a bit of a stretch, is a great way to get to Minnie. Something about the sounds (Immy and -en) swoosh just fine into Minnie IMO.

    I love it. Strikes me a quite versatile: could be edgy, folksy, outdoorsy, urban, laid-back, driven... I like it on its own, or as a nick name for Charles.

    I don't think it makes much of a difference, really. I'm two years older than one sibling; she's three years older than the next. We all played with and bickered with each other, and now we're all...

    Hmm, initials are funny things. They really don't come up all that much, and in many circumstances don't come in the actual order (i.e. monograms where Oliver Richard K. would be ROK). Now that I'm...
