Avalon is wonderful, but Avonlea would be a great addition to female names.
I always liked Sandra Avalon or Cassandra Avalon, but for a first….
I think I like Avalon followed by a two...

I like Aurelius Dean or Ezra Aurelius or Ezra Dean best.
Rainier, Douglas, Balsam all seem quite solid as nature names.
But so to me do Birch, Alder, Cedar, Forest, Moss, Muir, Walden, Tilden, Vernon, Elm, Kenelm, Spruce, Pine, Oak, Oakley, Moor,...
None, as we have very different taste in names.
I love both Charles and Charleston.
So long as no one calls him the hideous Chuck!
Charleston Robert? Charleston Roger? Charleson Reginald? Don't know why, but I favor an R middle name.
I agree. I like the phrase "strong, grounded names" -- unlike Destinee, Tiffany, and others.
In English-speaking countries, it is said Ag-nus.
It's fine to not like it though.
You are totally right! Douglas is a lovely, strong, gentle Scottish name with a million great nicknames: Gus, Doug, Dougie, Dougal, Dougray.
LOVE THE NAME!
I've never even heard of the movie Mama, so I wouldn't worry about it. I love Lillian Victorian, Lily for nickname.
Interesting. In Northern California, it seems to be more a of a pretty (though rough to the touch) garden flower.
Yes, Nandina is lovely! And a very nice shrub, with year-round interest (berries,...

None, horribly, horribly overused.
I never know. I think I say a hard g, but I could be wrong.
I forgot Cress, Carnation, Vervain, and Mint as well.
that I think should be!

I love The Wind in the Willows so much that I know that's why I like that combo! I would worry about it if we were a more literate society, but we're not. None of my high school students have read...
I teach high school English and have been a teacher for 27 years (earlier of elementary school). In all those years, I have seen very little name teasing and yet I frequently read on nameberry that...
Liking or disliking certain names or name trends does not make one a name snob, in my opinion.
Names have so many connotations and associations, some positive to the namer and some terrible.

An oddity perhaps, but my uncle's name is Ronald Roland and I love the sound.
I love Ebenezer (Eben), Ichabod, Cadwallader, and Mungo.
I am past my child-bearing years, so don't worry!
I am curious as to how folks view these names. Good for a dog? Only for a grandpa or...

I would never think liking a certain name would be being biased. It's all just personal preference and both Graham and Shepherd seem to me lovely soft strong names for a man.

Yeah, it's funny. It is such a silly-looking name with "ham" in it, like Hambone for a dog, but I find it irresistible too. Sounds like a sexy Celtic man to me, with a sense of humor.

I am helping to name an upcoming boy and wondered what you thought.

Girls named Taffeta and Cricket, Organza maybe too.

Oliver Randall (nephew, love this name)
Hudson Ernest Joseph (nephew, too bad Hudson's nickname is Hud or Huddy, gack)
Scarlet Adeline (not my taste)
Addison (for a girl, the new Madison no doubt)...

I don't know that this is a red light, but to me it sounds like hard on.
