Completely agree with you about Rose being bland in the middle. I love Juliet and Sylvia together :)
Love either pronunciation of Bea. Betsy, or even Betty, could also be adorable on the right girl. Beata is hard for me to say, and Tris seems a little dated.
Yep, exactly what I meant, thank you!
I will endeavour to use more smileys :) Would never call the mods on Nameberry police-like, anyway! :eek:

I find both genders can be difficult/unexciting at times, for me, but in different ways.
For boys, I've had a few names that I've loved for a long time, and then a very long list of names I like....
This is all very true, but you have to also factor in the fact that people often live near/move in the same circles as people with similar taste in names. For instance, the hipper parts of London...
Yes! My biggest naming pet peeve. It's the same with parents who claim not to have been aware that the name they've chosen was becoming popular; popularity trends are clear, it seems very rare for a...

Hmm, I'm British, and I would see purple as a more 'little girly' colour than yellow. However, I tend to see a distinction more between soft pastels in use for girls and bold, bright colours for...

Whilst I do think it would be mistaken for Emma (or perhaps Abba, but they had some great tunes!) regularly, I really really like it. I think it's very pretty and would fit in so well with all the...
Sorry for any repeats! This is just a random selection from my long list that seem to only have one well-recognised spelling:
To be honest, I'm British, and I really don't get it. Whilst it doesn't feel super early 80s to me, it seems very late 80s/early 90s (think it may have risen to popularity later here than in the US),...

I'd go for maybe the less heavy Victoriana as a solution, perhaps:

I don't know; I'm a self-confessed lover of clunky old-lady names, and I still dislike Francine. This may be because I have a lot of French family & spent a lot of time there, though, as I agree it...

Oh, what a lovely thread! I've also often wondered about the people behind the namers.
I'm Caro, 22, finishing off my studies in philosophy/politics stuff and madly applying or a 'proper' job. I...
Agree that I wouldn't want to names differently than two separate sons, though I may split middle names differently due to the certainty of having two boys. Probably would be:

Really like lots of these!
Theodore, Sebastian & Albert (but worry these are becoming a bit too ubiquitous!)
Alfred (especially if he's not often just Alfie!)

At the moment I'm really crushing on Gwendolyn or Winifred nn Winnie, Rosemerta, Desdemona as a guilty pleasure and Juno and Cleo as middles.
Love Alma too!

Thanks so much for all the comments (sorry I'm replying late, had to quit the internet unexpectedly!). I'm especially happy that so many people think that Juliet nn Jules would be a good choice; it's...

Yay, another vote for Harold, thank you!

Thanks so so much to everyone, even just the poll results have been really helpful! Really interesting that so many people like Gilbert/Gil with Edmund, this is a new contender for me, I only just...

Arlo Edward (with or without James) is so so lovely, I don't think you need to keep looking, in all honesty!
September 29th, 2013, 08:17 PM
They're all lovely. But Calloway Cruise sounds brilliant, like a hero in a film noir and I do adore Cal, so that one may be my favourite :)

I LOVE Djuna with Zelda, so much flapper-girl cool. It's amazing! Also like Vita and am neutral on Edwina, Cora feels a little too safe perhaps.
All the best of luck!
Ingrid nn Indie is on my list, and I love her. Not sure she'll fit in our future sibset though, so you'll have to use her instead!

The ones that shine brightest for me:
Fiammetta (still love this! Super warm and fuzzy)
Hespera (like her more and more, as I keep seeing her on your threads!)

Hello there you lovely people,
A few months ago, the manhalf and I decided on some Number Ones for when we start trying in a couple of years (we're planners!). They are, provisionally:
