    I've only heard Marcy used as a nickname for Marcia and Marcella, and it does seem to follow more naturally from those two because Martha lacks the c. But why not? I think it works for Martha too.
  3. How popular do you think Evelyn, Arden and Imogen will get?

    I'm in the US and am most interested in how popular they'll become here, but but am also interested in this on a global level. I'm aware that Imogen is already quite trendy in the UK and wonder how...

    While I don't hate this category, I'm totally with you in finding them interchangeable and without substance - meh! I don't think I love any a-ending, a-beginning names, now that I think about it....

    Olive is the one that made me wonder if a line has been crossed and if we're perhaps trying to revive too many names, or confusing vintage with beautiful/classic/usable in some cases. There are...

    Imogene/Imogen - I'd always liked this name but had only heard it on characters until recently.

    Matilda - same

    Eloise - also the same

    Jayden - Sounds like a sci-fi name (and is, in fact,...

    Eamon - it's alright
    Willem - will constantly be confused with William, as it's so close
    Egan - Interesting... I may prefer Egon, though
    Valen - cool

    Ashley is the more classic version (as classic as a unisex surnamey name can get) and Ashleigh looks more trendy and complicated.

    I prefer Ashley because it's shorter/easier to spell and also...

    When it comes to green names, I'd rather be Kelly, Emerald, and maybe even Midori, Hunter, Teal - or even Chartreuse - than Olive.

    I prefer Olivia to Olive and Olivier to Oliver. Honestly, Olive...

    Tansy (as a nod to Pansy, as in Parkinson, without being so literal) popped into my head for you.

    Bellatrix was always my favorite name from the series, so I understand where you're coming from. I...

    IMO, Vivian is the way to go unless you're French or living in a French-speaking area: it's not ambiguous when it comes to pronunciation in English and lacks unnecessary letters. Vivien Leigh's...

    Brooke by far! Its sound is more distinctive among the pool of popular names today and it's a solid choice. Brinley sounds made-up and will blend in with all the other made-up sounding -lee names.

    What do you think of these? I'm trying to think of more names with a similar feel, preferably ones that haven't been as overused but are still at least somewhat familiar. Suggestions? This is...

    Most of the names I hear on real kids are fairly to extremely popular and "classic"/vintage-sounding: Avas, Olivias, Elijahs, etc. The girls' names tend to be more conservative, on the whole, so I...

    Lofton is my first choice. It's distinctive and tough-sounding enough to work on a female trucker.
