Oh dear. Apostrophes and pronunciations that break rules of English spelling are acceptable when the name is coming from another language where the use of such devices is part of the original...
I was a name-obsessed teen! Actually, I was a name-obsessed child. My mom had two baby name books, and I'd read each of them at least twice by the time I was ten.
Names I liked when I was a...
My grandfather(who has a nickname-sounding-name-as-a-name) and grandmother(who has a name without a handy nickname) gave all of their children nicknames as names. To date, none of their many...
A name that isn't sure of itself

I love unusual noun names like Journey, Fable, and Clover, but that name category doesn't overlap with any of the rest of my names. I also love the name Ever. Doesn't fit into my naming style at ALL,...
I like Hugo and George best in your sibset, although Asher would do nicely as well. Hugo, like William, is a strong, classic Germanic/English name, and while George is Greek, it was brought to...
Augusta_Lee- I think the phrase "family names" is just shorthand for "names that hold great significance to one or both parents." My brother is named after a family friend. I would consider that to...
Maggie, Emma, Isaac, and Lucy.
Constantine, Emmanuel, and Bartholomew.
I think Riley is very firmly unisex. The unisex popularity wouldn't stop me from using it, but it's not a sound I would use for my kids(too close to my name). Especially in the name list you have in...
I'm not currently planning to use multiple middles for my kids, but I think it's whatever floats your boat. The first middle, and often just the initial, is the only one used on most forms, so it's...
Class and names are definitely related, but it's a case of connotation(associated/secondary meaning) rather than denotation(explicit/direct meaning). I think people get caught up in cause and effect,...

This was hard! It helped me to realize that some of my names that I felt were different were actually really similar, and would be odd in a sibling group(Gillian/Julian/Juliet was the first problem...
Analise Cordelia is a freshman in high school who isn't quite sure if she's rebellious or not. She's a B+/A- student in most subjects... she's somewhat bookish, but eschews the description of 'nerd.'...

If you have the kind of relationship where you feel comfortable being honest, then do so. And there are good ways to phrase concerns. Some criticisms that I don't consider useful would include: not...

So I’m somewhat new to the forums(long-time lurker), but I’ve discovered that I LOVE the CAF games here. Some of my favorites are the ones that have unique twists or restrictions that are harder than...

THIS. Yes. I'm all for keeping a name mostly under wraps until after the baby comes, but it should be shared with someone. You don't need commentary from everyone on Facebook, but feedback from some...
