Love Last Tango in Halifax -- and Derek Jacobi! And I too listened carefully to the names....so funny. Puir wee bairn. But we also have: Alan, Celia, Raf, Gillian, John, Caroline, Kate, William,...
As the cousin of Samuel Dashiell Hammett, I can tell you the reason why you want to pronounce the name dash-eel. It's because everyone outside of family has always pronounced the name incorrectly. ...
I am bi and finally came out two years ago, after being asked to become faculty advisor for the first ever high school GSA in our extremely rightwing and conservative community. The kids -- all of...
You liked Levi (which is NOT short for Leviticus, it means "joined" in Hebrew) so let's try:
Adiel or Adriel
Eben, Eli, Elisha
Jotham, Judah, Joram, Joel, Joachim,...
Actually, I just mentioned Silence on today's blog thread. In my family, the Brewsters of Mayflower fame, Silence is a recurring name...and it's also the name of a stillborn child in Ben Ames...
Personally, I think you should be writing about what you know. You sound very young, and this sounds like a "mash-up" between Divergent, Hunger Games, and a number of other dystopian YAs. I can't...
As a professional writer and writing teacher, the grammar goes with the character. It does, indeed, become tricky, because it all depends on the point-of-view. In one of my novels, I use first...
Well, Naomi (nn Nomi) has always been a favourite in my neck of the woods. Here are some traditionial combos for Naomi:
I remember she responded to my blog about the Brewster genealogy names with her mention of her love for the name Solace, which was featured frequently in my family.
Solace seems to epitomise who...
I was unable to post when I read the news in urgent prayers, because I was so saddened. Rollo and Mischa were the two friendly faces I met when I joined this forum -- four years ago? three years...
I love the name, but in its Hebrew version, Avner, with the nn Avi. If I'd had a second son, his Hebrew name definitely would have been Avner.
You couldn't use Barnabas for a vampire anymore, lol.

You're misunderstanding in that Prince Prospero was a first name, not a last name. Fortunato could have been either but both stories were set in Italy. Poe used names that fit his settings, such as...
Depends on what type of a story it is. There's livejournal, fictionpress, Archive of Our Own....I post previously published stories of mine on my webpage at proboards. But remember that if you post...
Should be colours or colors, no apostrophe. Plurals don't take apostrophes in English.
Are you asking for those of us with synaesthesia? Not sure I understand the reference.

I love Aislinn but prefer the Irish pronunciation. I love Branwen but with this spelling. Deirdre is a lovely name but it's too often pronounced Dee-dree here in the US. Fiona and Fenella are...

In the real world novel I'm currently writing, my main character is a 72-year-old actor named Hugh (and called Hughie by ex-wife number one) who has recently lost his much younger spouse, Jonathan,...
Seems to me as if you need to do some research first. And I believe Mario Puzo already did the Romeo and Juliet theme.

Thanks! I do like the Weasleys and I wish I had red hair (although it was auburn when I was young). As for Eione, I was brought up on the beaches of New England. What an appropriate name.
It would be very unusal to meet a "Cora" in her twenties so that would say something significant about her parents. Most Coras are under four or in their seventies. Coral however is more common for...

I thought the name was spelled Dilys. Seems like too many y's too me. But I love the name Dilys. It sounds fine, though -- Dilys Ivy. Yeah, it works.
But Dilys is a Welsh girl's name. It's not...
I have been reading, over the past year, The Collected Poems of Louise Gluck (apparently I can't type an umlaut in this box). She has long been a favourite poet of mine, along with Adrienne Rich,...
wonder which of Victoria's children's names they'll use this time? (and I know they said it was because of St Albertus Magnus and St Leopold).
Seth Benjamin (kept)
Thomas Jonathan (changed fn)
Oliver Isaac (swapped)
Robert Josiah (initials)
Noah Gidon (changed mn)
