I've heard the north/south divide explanation too. Similar to England and the 'a' sound I think- you say Alex-ARN-der, I say Alex-ANN-der etc. Both are fine. I have a distant Welsh aunt called Eira...

Probably a only UK thing- there was a viral video a few years back that cropped up everywhere. The dog in it was called Fenton and that's my sole association with the name. I can't imagine a child...
Yeah I'm not that bothered by repeating names. Obviously, it's not perfect from a namenerd's POV and 3 Maggies is a bit weird, but it can be cute. I know of one family where the MN of the each child...
Jessica is a funny one and I think we've revelled at it's popularity before at some point because no one knows any little Jessicas!
I think it really got popular in the late 80s- I don't think...

Wow Ren! What great, clear photos! You're so lucky. My ancestors don't seem to have had many photos taken. Even if they did, they certainly didn't get passed down our way :(
Here are a couple....

Yes I knew they were a couple once and that he's gay. Ahhh they did seem perfect together in P&P but I bet it was a bit awkward acting opposite each other as love interests. Didn't know he was in...

Sounds fun :)
Emma Thompson - Like everyone else, I think she's brilliant. A marvellous actress with a lovely voice.
Julie Walters - Her Mrs Weasley is the best. Love her.

Ok. Thought you'd made a typo in the title. Is the double A in -staan a foreign or family twist on the name? Because I'm a keen royal historian and I've only ever seen the king's name written as...

I'm a tad late too :/ Don't know how I managed to miss this thread. Anyway, I'm an ISFJ :) Sounds pretty accurate. And we're supposed to make good nurses which is fantabulous and reassuring. If I get...

Because I liked her where she was left- it was a neat ending. And I don't think it would've worked with her hanging around with John Hurt when there were so many other things going on in that...

Well that was all right. Bit hard to follow at times but there was loads of Tenth Doctor brilliance. And Rose wasn't even Rose so I'm happy. Might go and watch some series 2 now to fulfil my need for...

I'm by no means a Whovian but I do love (most of) Doctor Who so I shall be watching :) Thing is, I watched everything up until the very first episodes of Matt Smith & co and decided I heartily...
It's been to long since I checked this thread! Hello to all the new people :)
@Irene: I'm annoyed with myself now because I can't remember how I found Nameberry at all! I'd just started writing a...

Okay, this is my second and probable last post here as I'm getting a little tired of all the repetitiveness and bickering (yes, bickering. 'Are you or are you not being offensive', 'I'm...

Well, this has been an interesting read.
Totally agree. I often feel like an idiot, here and elsewhere, for wanting to have kids more than a career and for (shock horror) wanting to take my...

I agree, there are tonnes of actual names with meanings and history that people could use. Most of these just sound like noises cobbled together.
I think these are all right though:

Digory certainly isn't made up. It's been in use for hundreds of years, especially in Cornwall where it remained popular from (at least) the 16th century right through to the Victorian era, far...

I won't be having kids for a good few years yet, but when I do, I definitely don't want to find out the gender (which I'm guessing is what 'team green' means).
I don't really get why I would need...
Drinks: I'm probably the only person on the planet who hates Pepsi and Coke. Blechh. But I could live off tea. Proper English builder's tea with lots of milk and a funk load of sugar. And made the...
Ahhh see, I find this so difficult! My DID playlist on iTunes contains 16 songs because I find it so hard to choose. But I will try...
1. Here Comes The Sun - The Beatles
2. Canon in D - Johann...
It's a Cornish word and that's the Cornish pronunciation. It shouldn't have anything to do with area. Pronouncing it differently would be similar to someone taking an English word name like...

I think I'd pronounce it 'SEP', like Sepp Blatter, the FIFA football guy. But the German student in me wants to pronounce the 'e' on the end like 'uh', giving 'SEP-uh', so I'm not sure now. I reckon...
The correct pronunciation is el-O-ən, which rhymes with Rowan. Emphasis on the middle syllable. The ending definitely isn't 'win' so Win/Winnie is a bit of a stretch- imagine calling a Rowan 'Winnie'...

Same as with the girlies. Likes & dislikes.
Auberon - I prefer Oberon too. Auberon is too aubergine. But I do like Oberon. I do.
Aurelius - Love.
Balthazar - Growing on me, especially...

I've split them into names I think would make decent names and those that I dislike/don't think would work well:
Adair - I quite like, but it seems very masculine to me, perhaps because...
