    I am rarely offended, and have never rescinded my membership in anything on those grounds. Usually, dialogue makes things better in the long run. And now I'm logging out.
  2. really, really offended by Tuesday's blog post.

    Since my life (happily!) got a little busier over the last few months, I haven't been involved in much discussion here. But today's thoughtless blog post upset me enough that I will delete my account...

    There are lots of trendy names I like (if you define 'trendy' as having an unusual spike in popularity at the moment, either in North America or in Britain)--Florence, Claire, Audrey, Iris, Oliver,...

    I don't think Margaret and Molly are too close for sisters, since I think of Molly primarily as a Mary-related name (though I agree that maybe trying to avoid Maggie and Maisie as nicknames would be...

    Nicknames as full names are all right, I think (nobody bats an eyelash at Molly or Jack, do they?!), but Phronsie is unfamiliar enough to most people that it could become an annoyance to your...

    To me, Cillian is a man's name; if you like the sound there's Lilian or Gillian.

    My sense is that it would work as a girl's name without too much trouble if she stays in the US and most parts of...

    @Ottilie - drat, I forgot about Lenore in Spain. Humbug. The notion of a 21st-century Queen Eleanor has been delighting me all day :) I'll have to switch my bet to Charlotte or Caroline. Victoria...

    My guess is Eleanor for a girl- Eleanor of Aquitaine was queen 850 years ago, so her story seems distant enough not to be a burden to a modern member of the royal family (not that it would...

    Robin and Idris! Ivor the Engine and his pal Idris the dragon were favourite characters of mine growing up. My Nain made me an Idris who, um, still lives at my parents' house.

    The ones I really like:
    Thalia- assume you're using the 'th' pronunciation for this one (rather than as a homonym for Talia)? Love this, though it is probably the most widely-used of your options on...

    If you're worried about the popularity of Hattie, why not just name her Harriet?

    Hattie's cute and unexpectedly hit the top 1000 last year (waayy down at the end though, there were only 253 of...

    Silas is in the top 200, while Cassius is in the top 1000, but way down in the 800s. Your friends and family are probably just more familiar with Silas and are therefore more comfortable with it. If...

    Not at all too plain!

    Jill's a 'mom' name at the moment, but Gillian and Jillian are both still charming names. Jill on its own has been out of the top 1000 since 2000, so it will seem a bit more...

    Three years ago I was working in a baby and kids' clothing store- asking the name of a new baby was a standard line of conversation when ringing up purchases. Two babies with their moms in the shop,...

    Kinda like it! I do like quirky middles with classic first names- like others have mentioned, Frances Plum would work well too (both those names a deep, rich, purple-y colour to me- plum redder,...

    The sound is somewhat attractive, but it's an intensely political name to anyone with ties to Britain. More political than Reagan or Kennedy (which are so commonly given as names that the political...

    I love Gale and Gus from your boys' list, and Simon, Felix, and Ezra are pretty good too.

    With Leo and Zelie, I do think Eli is a bit too close- I would get them all mixed up. In the long run,...

    I know a pair of 20-something brothers called Edward and Henry- works well!

    Does Edmund appeal to you? Close to the dignity and history of Edward, but with the smoother sounds of William and...

    Both of your lists were such fun to read, Ottilie :)
