    While I was comparing 2 names, I just realized that I have some 'pet peeves', for lack of a better word, with the spelling of names and which I find more appealing. Like for example, how some people...

    I don't mind it, but I think pronunciation could be slightly tricky. "Zeen" vs. "zine" kind of thing. I also think Ambrosine Cornelia Elizabeth Louise (Lastname) is a LOT of name. Like a lot. If...

    I like the idea of Vivian on a boy in theory - just like I like the idea of a boy named Aubrey - but in practice, I wouldn't do it. Yes, I think we should move away from a binary model of looking at...

    Forvo

    With the accent aigu over the first e, May-lee-sahnd, with a hard D at the end. Without the accent, Mel-ih-sahnd - sort of like a smush of Melissa and Sandra with a long a.

    I like Brooklyn Yuxi, without a second middle name or with a different middle name than Ivy. Brooklyn Ivy makes me think of the traditional New York brownstone, like a description of something. I...

    If you had said Luna and Stella I would be rolling my eyes really hard, but I think Aurora and Luna are nice together. It's a subtle nod rather than an obvious connection. I like it.
