I'm not a teen, but I do babysit. I work at a daycare and watch several of my kids on the weekends. Luckily for me, the kids are very familiar with me and I with them. I usually know what they eat,...
I work at a daycare and when I'm testing out the plausibility of a name, I usually pretend like I have a child with that name in my class. Its odd, but it works. Just a reality check I use.
Under other circumstances, I wouldn't find Bloom very appealing. But it flows so nicely with Isla and the connection is very sweet.
I would keep it as an option.

I read Cedar Lincoln as "Cedar Lincoln Log" lol!
True Gem is quite special.*
Cayson disappoints me. I work with children and one of my students is named Caysen. It doesn't fit her and it sounds...
My baby dreams always cut off before I get to hear their names. Its quite frustrating!
I love dream names. I think you should always write them down to remember. :)

I want to put canoes on top, have my dog in the back, and go camping!
Thanks everyone for your replies. As someone who plans on adopting in the future, it's good to hear everyone's opinions.
Side note about Cohen: I happen to work with children and one them is,...
I think it largely depends on the name. I don't get as worked up as some people do about nicknames as full names. I see no problem with Lucy or Annie or Evie being a full name.
In fact, I think...

There is a little boy named Rush where I work. Unfortunately there is also a Cohen, which isn't bizarre but it was really disappointing.

I have loved names since I was 13. I posted on the Baby Names World forums until they were shut down.
I mostly keep my name obsession a secret, but will gladly talk about it if I feel comfortable....
Arabella is an Arctic Monkeys song!
@psalm465 That is a precious idea!
@jamjam I totally agree with a name being your sense of identity. But would you want to identify with a name that is so widely hated?
@mulme944 I respect that completely. I think giving a child a...
I'm going to start off by saying that this situation is hypothetical, but the people and circumstances are real.
I met a little girl while visiting family this weekend. She stays at a family...
My name is Chelsie. I'm a college student and preschool worker. I'm 22, not married, no kids. I am not so patiently waiting on motherhood, but I know my time will come. I've loved...
Ellis - I do enjoy the sound of this, although if I heard it out loud I would assume you were saying "Ella's"
Celia - I adore Celia. Such a beautiful name and it pairs flawlessly with Max.

Thanks again to everyone's replies!
I'm certainly not blind to the hardships and exhaustion of parenting. I definitely like handing my daycare kids over at the end of the day. But somedays I just...

Oh, but I work in the 2 year old class! My assistant and I have 15 little hooligans. Call me crazy, but its only made it worse! I love those little crazy monsters. We have a good time. I cry when my...

Thank you for your insight! Just to clarify, I do not have immediate plans to get pregnant or adopt. Not in the slightest. I must wait until my degree, then for a career, then for my house, etc....

We truly are quite similar! Although, I rushed things along and have planned to start officially looking into adoption if I am still forever alone at 25. My heart is so ready, I cannot stand to wait...

I'm 22 and in college. I graduate in a little over two years. I'm also desperate to be a mother.
Meanwhile, all my friends from 18-24 already have their husbands and their kids and their life all...

For me, I determine popular names by how popular they are in my area. I work at a daycare and am often in elementary school classrooms for various reasons. If I have seen it on multiple children, I...

Since Imogen and Imagene are pronounced very differently, I don't feel it has the same connection.
If I am going to use her name, I want it to be her actual name letter for letter. I also don't...
I think its a sweet nickname and Beatrice is lovely.
