Do you prefer names with Latin or Greek origins?
I hadn't really thought about the origins of names until I was looking through my database and filtered my results to Latin origins and then Greek. I think I like both equally but I wonder about other people's opinions. I'll give some examples for you to refer to.

I think it balances out on my list too, since I absolutely love both Latin and Greek names. But I think on average there are more Greek names, especially on my super long master list. Although it depends where they are on my list too; there are definitely some Latin names (Lyra, Beatrix, Horatio and more) that are a lot higher than some of my other Greek origin names. Oddly enough though one of my best friends almost exclusively likes Latin names (for characters etc.) .Wholock | Historian | Biochemist | Single Pringle | Teenberry (16)

It's about even for me, but a little more preference for the Greek names. However, since Greek uses the K, I'm afraid that they would be seen as Kardashian-y more than the latinized ones.Colette | Audrey | Natalia | Vivienne | Cecilia | Felicity | Sylvia | Naomi❤Erik | Anders | Gabriel | Ronan | Magnus | Cillian | Isaac | Heath
