Today I encountered a little boy named Jrue. Pronounced Drew. His brothers had normal j-names, so I assume the parents wanted to keep with a theme and tried to get creative.
Is this an actual name...

I'm open to switching Edmund and Rosa to Edwin/Eswin/Oswin and Rosamund. I like both girl options equally, but I tend to like Edmund slightly more than the other boy options.

What would you think if you met or heard of the following sib-set?
August, Edmund, Milo,
Clementine, Xanthe, Rosa, Indie
I'm not planning on having 7 kids, but those are all...

I agree that Indie works better on a girl. And the only actual River I know is a girl, so I tend to view that one as a girl's name as well.
I'm not in love with the flow of the middle and...

Mackenzie! I can't even begin to describe how handsome the name Mackenzie is on a boy!! Oh, I swoon a little bit every time I hear it.
Ashley is so rugged and strong on boys. I can see a teenage...
Honestly, I love it. I'm not even a big Star Wars fan, but I love the name Anakin.
It always makes me laugh on this website that people will so aggressively state that boy names shouldn't go to...
Tell me your thoughts on this name. How useable, what impressions it gives you, what assumptions you'd make on hearing the name, etc. I'd really like honest, detailed answers, if possible. I like...

I like the way they sound together, but the fact that they both end in "the" and are pronounced differently, would that cause issues?
I know they're very different styles, but what I'm most...
I would use a word/name that means red rather than red itself, but that's just me. I liked the above suggestions of Scarlett Rose.
Not sure if you're aware, but there's actually a horror movie...

I greatly prefer Josie. Shelby and Rylie both sound really mid-90s to me.
If Lynn is special to you, then I say keep it, but if you're open to other middles for Josie, I would suggest Kit. It's...
I know a family with like 6+ kids, all of who have McK-names...McKenzie, McKaybree, McKade, McKarie. They all have dropped the Mc part offv their name and go by the K-name.
:lol: I saw the thread title and assumed this was about names to honor/reference HG Wells. Whoops!
I don't think Prim can be short for anything but Primrose: but...

I'd prefer it if the names I love had lovely meanings, but Imogen just means "maiden" and Rosamund means "house protection" and I'll admit that I have looked for alternatives because I wasn't wowed...
I absolutely dare!
For me it all depends on my perceived respectability of the thing the name came from. Katniss and Renesmee are from fad books, and while the Hunger Games are at least good,...
I've found that most Americans find state names to be kind of trashy, which is sad because I love Georgia, Carolina, Indiana.

I'm still loving Ingrid the best, although, I do have a question:
Would Clementine, Indie, and Rosa be that odd on siblings? Does indie require a longer, more formal name?
I was reading in the...
I personally only know one Ava, who is in her 50s...but it seems like every other acquaintance of mine has a daughter/niece named Ava. I haven't met any of them, but I hear about Avas all the time,...

I'm loving the suggestions of Ingrid...I've never thought of indie as a nn for Ingrid! It makes be like it a lot more.
Sorry, guys, but I really hate Lucinda. It sounds like a caricature of a...

The only vintage name I can think of that would get me to Indie is India.
I like the name, honestly, and I've heard the argument that it's offensive, and while I disagree, it's enough to dissuade...
I agree that Arti/Artie/Arty is the most obvious nickname, but I could also see Temi or even Remi
Thanks for the replies!
Does anyone else have opinions on this name? What would you expect an American boy named Hamish to be like?
I love this name. Hamish sounds so smart and handsome, rugged yet soft. I could picture any kind of boy with the name Hamish.
So...how problematic is it that I'm an American in the western US? To...
The only tee-air-ruh I know is spelled Tierra.
The only two boy names I can really see myself using are August and Edmund. I'd like to expand the list and have at least 5-10 boy names I completely love.
I do love the name Henry, but Henry is...
