Who is your NB inspiration?
Hi everybody, maybe an odd question, but who are your naming inspirations or influences on NB?
I was just wondering if I was the only one that got so much ideas and inspiration for my own list, by seeing the lists or signature of others. I'm not talking about literally copying someone else's combos, but rather discovering names in other people's signatures.
Is it just me or does this happen to everyone else? Care to name a few ?Edward Mackenzie (03/'16)

Lately it's been @adelina_sophia and @eoxima for me! I love the way @adelina_sophia's combos feel so simple, down-to-earth, timeless, and yet stunning nonetheless (Adelina Joy? Magdalena Ruby? Elysia Rose? Anneliese Charlotte (Anneliese Charlotte!!!!)? Isaac Peregrine? Leo Xavier?). She's a genius. I love how most of her girls names feel like muted pastel colors to me, like mauve and dusty purple and pearlish-white. I get this image of giggling children playing under overcast skies in a remote village somewhere in England.
And I absolutely love the blend of lush, romantic charm meets unmistakable quirk in @eoxima's combos. Jude Emerson? Georgia Lilac? Eva Calliope? Adelaide Iris/Adelaide Sofia? Ezra Bellamy? I swear, I wish I came up with her combos. I think she took a similar journey as me, somehow, because we both started out with Isabella (maybe even both Isabella Rose!), and somehow we ended up with this international-flavor, slightly vintage, slightly modern, quirky, fun, unexpected style.
What a great idea for a thread!Ashley | namenerd | Christian | storyteller

Ashley! That's very sweet of you, and so unexpected too. And ha, yes, I did start off with Isabella Rose. That exact combo.
To answer OPs question, I don't think I have a naming taste like any of the other users (that I can recall) so I don't think I have any NB inspiration as such. I just ask for advice a lot of the time and rely on NB users responses and feedback to help better shape my name lists. Ashley (ashthedreamer) always has a lot of well thought out and useful advice that I love to receive because it feeds into my naming obsession as I spend a few hours after pondering on the feedback and expanding my lists!

I don't find inspiration in any one person, but in the site as a whole. As you can see, my naming style is so very much not like popular opinion, so I more admire as I come across it.Momma to Daytona Joette (8), Revvie Adessie (5) and Zabryn Amare (4)
