I'm asking for my little sister. She and her husband are newlyweds and have at least 2 years of grad school ahead of them, so while they want kids they are planning to wait until they're out of...
My family really hates every name i love, but for some reason they adore Kit. I'm not giving up entirely on those other names, but i do want to explore options that my family likes as much as i do.
It feels very 90s to me and somehow all the Kendras i know are shallow, dim-witted, kind of bitchy girls so i don't have great associations with it
I kind of dig Jerusha as a way to honor Joshua? I wouldn't have said so a year or two ago but now it reminds me of Jerusha Hess, who is this really cool, quirky indie filmmaker and it makes Jerusha...
Evangeline is classy, gorgeous, and delightful.
Avangeline looks truly hideous, I'm sorry. If i saw it, I'd immediately assume her parents didn't know how to spell.
Eva technically has two...

Assuming this is a real poster looking for help:
Your child is a year and a half old. She already knows her name, and she will grow into it. At this point it doesn't matter if you've named her...
So doing some filing at work i came across a girl named Fyre. I'm assuming it's pronounced "fire"
I kind of like it, it seems like it would take a certain personality to pull it off though.

So if I'm not Greek, and I'm not married yet and have no idea what cultural background my fh wood be from...
Is it okay to want to use the name Xanthe? I air everything about it, but i have no...
Totally do this all the time!
I feel like non name nerds don't really have the same exposure to names that we do, and so if we talk about names and i mention my favorites, mine end up sounding...
I adore Claudia! I wouldn't worry about the meaning (my own name means "manly" and I'm dealing with it just fine lol)
Claudia Donovan is what made me love the name. She's such a wonderful...
Hey, thanks for responding!
Eloise -could see myself using it
Lola - i feel like it needs a more substantial first but i adore this as a nickname
Clementine - i adore this name and it...
The only name from my old lists that I'm still completely loving is Xanthe so I'm looking to use that as my jumping off point to search for a new list.
I love Xanthe for it's fun, spunky,...
It's all nickname for me. I can't imagine any person having their actual name be Skipper.
I love the nn Skip on a boy, but Skipper feels unisex.
It's got the Barbie association that's been...
Flora Christina Crosby
Katherine Christina Crosby (nn Kit instead of Katie, maybe? Kit Crosby could be adorable if you're into it)
Jane Christina Crosby

It sounds, to me, like the parent didn't anticipate their baby ever getting older than maybe 5 years. I can't imagine a preteen, teenager, adult, or elderly person introducing themselves as "Jaxie"...
The only one that seems too far gone to the girls, to me, is Morgan (but i also dislike the name so that might be influencing that)
Something to remember is that the kids your child will grow up...

Edmund, Prosper, Xanthe, and Louisa? Nns would be Eddie, Prop (or Pip?), Xan, and Lulu.
I know the style is eclectic, but aside from the different backgrounds, do they flow together as a...

Alwaysben, its The Thief Lord!! At least, I'm pretty sure that's the book you're looking for; that's the book that made me fall in love with Prosper! :)
Thanks for the answers, everyone.

I love both Prosper and Noble, but have mostly kept them as options for middles. But the blog post about boy virtue names included both and makes them seem more useable than i had previously thought....

Marshmallow, for some reason, the names Ashley and Heather both immediately came to mind based on your description. Though i could totally see pp's image of a Courtney too.

You answered your own question, i think; because the negative association you have to it isn't an association Americans have.
I know two Sadies, one in her 80s, one in her 20s. And my sister...
*awkwardly bumps thread*
What do you guys think about this as a first name? What kind of person is a Soleil, personality-wise? Is it better as a first or middle?
What middle Names would you suggest for Soleil, and does it...

My current girls top 3 is
India/Imogen (i prefer India, but an aware of the controversy and would likely use Imogen as an alternative I-name)
But i once had a conversation...

Pro: pretty, not commonly heard on kids these days
Con: i dislike the "wheeze" sound in it, and i have several friends whose mothers are named Louise, so it feels middle-aged to me
