My parents are much of name-nerds, but they've gotten into it a bit as I've been talking about it recently. When I was little I would make up elaborate, long names for myself and everything else that needed a name. As I got older and my games translated into writing, I started to look up names for my characters and I got into the name game. My aunt was always a bit of a name-nerd too, naming all the pets. Her names were quirky old-fashioned names, often literary as well (Rhonda, Milton, Hamlet were some names).Name-obsessed WriterCurrent FavesAcacia, Eleanor, Margaret, Guinevere, Myna, Lydia, Mira, Odessa, Ciara, GwendolynAlexander,Cassius, Nicholas, Sebastian, Cyrus, August, Caspian, Eramus, Benedict, Milton

lineska-thats an interesting point. I am extremely interested in languages and made one (that I could speak fluently in) when I was little. I wonder how many other people out there love Languages too. I also wonder what draws us into the languages. Is it the sounds or the letter shapes or something???
Also thanks for all the replies!!! I get very excited!!!

I'm definitely the ONLY name nerd in my family. I love languages! I really want to learn some unusual ones, but my mom thinks I'm a but nutty.
And also the 'I can see a color when I think of this name.' I tried explaining that to someone and they literally thought I was crazy when I was little.

jasmine.lee-everyone thinks I'm crazy when I tell them this. I haven't really told many people (including my parents). At first I thought that everyone saw them. It was only when I read the blog by Kaitlin Greyer did I realise I wasn't crazy.

Well, sorta. My mom and her brothers and sisters all have very traditional names, so does my dad's family. All my cousins have normal names too. I'm an Eva in a sea of Dylans and Reeses and Kathryns. But, my mom has a very eccentric taste in names. Now, Eva is at #83, pretty popular, but when I was born it was at #318 (the equivalent of Audrina today.) My style is not exactly eccentric but not traditional either...in the middle. So, my answer is yes AND no.♪~genevieve~♪
