I also forgot Nanette.
It gives me a kick to see that tonight's Pam and Linda blog is about -etta names! One of the most pleasurable aspects of nameberry is predicting trends; it allows us all to feel like bookies and...
I just realized I forgot one of my favorites, Claret.
I forgot Mignonette, which I like too, though I prefer Mignon.
Some of the names are dainty sounding, I agree.
And wow! You have even wilder, bolder name favorites than I do (I like Tangier, Taliesin, Tangerine, among others).
PS I forgot Minuet and...
I think you're right.
I do like Georgette and Jeannette, but that's largely because of personal associations like the Christmas carol I've always loved, Bring a Torch, Jeannette Isabella.
I like Evelyn, but I like even better Jessamine, Jessamyn and Jocelyn, even Carolyn, even very slightly Marilyn.
I don't like that -ette is a diminutive though there are a few on the list I fancy.
I'm quite partial to Georgette myself. It reminds me of my late grandmother's grey cat and the Regency writer Georgette Heyer. I think there's also a kind of fabric called georgette.
I like Margot Faye.
Although I do not necessarily favor most of these names, I do wonder if an -ette or -etta suffix trend is happening now (or is about to happen) in girls' names?
Scarlet(t) and Violet and Juliet...
Ah, if I had ten sons they could fix my DVD set-up! :)
Today's cast would be:
Bartholomew (or Barnaby)
Tangier (or Taliesin)
Bartholomew is a mouthful, but it's a great name anyway.
I would probably use nn of Barry or Barth.
But I sure would love to meet a Bartholomew in this lifetime.
PS You could always go with...
I wouldn't worry about the "stealing" -- if I liked a male name, I would name my son that and if other parents named their daughter that, oh well.
I know one female Jude and no male Judes (other...
These are lovely names!
I love Magdalen, but find Magdalena a little over the top for my taste (a little drama queenish). I also love Meg as a nickname.
Verity is an incredible name, and Vera...
They are all fine except Lazarus.
My fantasy twins would be Linus and Lennox. :)

I like Malachi and Lochlan best.
Jonas reminds me of Salk and the singing boys.
Thad looks like it would be pronounced with a th sound.
Casper is still the ghost to me!
I've known a number of Lauras and only one Laurel.
Both are nice, but I prefer Laurel, nn Lolly.
Actually I prefer Laurence etc. as male names.
I like Ingrid Athena!
It is strong and goddess-like, without sounding like Brunhilda.
I'm not wild about Indie, but I do like the full name.

Bonnie is a lovely and lilting name!

Lennox is classic!
Poll: Avalon Blythe is lovely.
Avalon Blythe is lovely.
I love names and nameberry. When I was little, I wanted to have 15 girls, all from different dads so they'd look different!
Then I grew up and learned about overpopulation.
So I wanted two...
I'm fascinated by people's responses. :)
I don't think there's much logic to which gender I associate with which month or day name, but I'm looking to see if there is any.
It does seem that...
I noticed how many of these names you wrote boy and girl on, whereas I think of them as one or the other.
It may have to do with synesthesia (which I am not sure how to spell). Tuesday for me is...
I love month and day names and have a strong sense of which I like for males and which I like for females. I'm not sure why. It isn't logical or provable.
Just curious to know how others feel in...
