    Mavis is to me deliciously old-fashioned.

    Maris reminds me of Niles Crane's horrible wife on Frasier.

    Something about the -ris syllable is unpleasant to me as well.

    Catherine is elegant and timeless, a true classic I love.

    Sabrina is a fun name and of course I picture Audrey Hepburn.

    Personally, I would much rather be named Catherine.

    Never ridiculous! :)

    Eglantine is elegant and Lana and Tina are nice nicknames.

    Fern is lush and verdant, a lovely floral with a woodsy yet dainty feel.

    One other thing that strikes me is that when people dismiss a female name as "too middle-aged" they do not seem to be talking about current middle-aged women's names. I'm 52 and my peers are named...

    I love the names Zephyr and Frost (I'm into weather!) and Sawyer is a fine name, though it feels overused on nameberry (maybe not in real life though? not sure).

    Personally, I don't care for it much, but it is an OK name.

    I like Ariel better, and Ariadne way better. The double l and e at the end weakens it for me.

    I love Winifred and cannot stand Gywneth so it's an easy choice for me.

    In all fairness, I cannot stand Gwyneth Paltrow so I'm sure that's a huge factor in my distaste for the name.

    Middle-Aged Names?

    I've noticed that nameberry frequently dismisses names, particularly female names, as sounding "middle-aged."

    I haven't heard of it before and can't say I like it, but I do like that it is a different language's version of a name which holds great meaning to you.
