    Juliette nn Lettie?

    Hi all,

    Do you think Juliette with the nickname Lettie works, or is too much of a stretch?

    I like Juliette very much (and it's an honor name for us) but have poor associations with Julie as a...

    Yes! I think it works as a first or middle name.

    Are these too strange and difficult?

    Hi all,

    I've recently fallen in love with three rare Celtic/British girl names:

    Gwenllian
    Ishbel
    Ferelith

    However, my partner dislikes them. He likes very unusual names (especially word...

    I can't say it's a name I'd like for myself-- too frilly and somehow sort of steamy. But I could see it working in some families, especially if it was meaningful to the parents. I don't love it...

    Hi All,

    I know the fun of guessing 2013's stats is over since the list came out, but I'd love to talk about predictions for the near future (1-5 years from now) for the US top 10 list for girls....

    Hi! Welcome to Namberry.

    That's a nice list in theory, but many of them sound off with your surname. The "a" ending of Joshua runs into the "Hor-" beginning. Oscar is also difficult because of the...

    Definitely Dahlia or Dalia. I wouldn't want to go through life named Delilah. Too heavy, too saucy, too suggestive.

    That's a nice set of names. I'd skip Elianna because it is part of a very, very trendy/popular set of sounds (Iliana, Eliana, Ella, Elianna, Liliana, Lilianna, etc).
