What Names Do You Love? (Let's Add Some Positivity to the Boards!)
I always HATE to see posts about "names you thing are terrible" and the like. Why can't we just be nice and talk about names that we love? I think we should.
So, tell us the names you love, whether you can actually use them or not. I think everyone needs happy thoughts, haha. I can't wait to read them all

I simply adore the name Noa. I think she is so sweet and lovely, for me she has a similar feel to "Sophie", another one I love.
I also love Sebastian, boyfriend doesn't understand this one. So handsome and whimsical.
These are all of the names I love but boyfriend has vetoed or simply don't sound good with my or his last name..
Rowan - so handsome and all boy for me
Emmett - says it reminds him of Emmett Smith the football player, apparently this is reason enough not to use it.
Caspian - sounds a lot like my own name, Cassandra, but maybe as a middle!
Sophia - I don't care how popular it is, but the better half has a niece by this name.
Imperioustigerlily - what names do you love!?

Erm, well, I really love my top four for each gender. Like I get a crazy grin on my face every time I think of them.
Isabelle Aurora Grace "Bella/Belle"
Arianne Eleanor Kate "Ari"
Olivia Wren Camille "Liv/Olive"
Violet Ophelia Claire
Caleb Elias Joseph
Everett Joshua Charles
Asher Elliot Zane (not 100% set yet, but I'm leaning strongly toward it) "Ash"
Jack August Cole (Cole might be up for grabs, but I still quite like it)
I also really love Rachel, Liliana (Lily), Charlotte (Lola), and Hannah (Annie) for girls right now, and Grayson (Gray), Avery, Brody, and Bailey for boys.
I really love Thisbe (Thisbe!) and Xanthe at the moment, but I don't really see me ever using them. I adore Wren and Eve, too, but I don't think they really go with my other favorites. And lately I've been liking Samuel for a boy, I think he goes fabulously with Isabelle, Arianne, Olivia, and Violet, but I just don't love it as a name enough to use it.
I don't really have any new favorites atm, I feel like I've really settled into my top 5-ish for each gender, and have loved them for a long time as they are, but I feel like I could use a couple new loves! I'd love to keep my style fresh. Oh, I've really been loving Benedict lately, too, but I'm not sure I would really use it. WDYT? Usable? I am not sure it really fits in with the likes of Caleb, Everett, Bailey, Asher, Jack, Avery, etc. I do love its meaning, though. I have a second cousin named Benjamin nn Ben, though, so I'm afraid it might step on some toes...
I agree on the negative posts, too, btw--the "what's the worst name ever?" type threads invariably step on someone's toes, I honestly don't see the need for that.
ETA: Also, I've been loving Evie lately! Eve nn Evie has just been a placeholder on my list until I could find a full name for my beloved Posy, but I am just so in love with Evie lately. She's just so sweet and (at least in America!) underused! I've never met an Evie, I think it's delightful. It's just not enough name for me though, and I feel like Eve's too straightfoward (and the Biblical character's not the most encouraging), Eva's missing a bit of something, and Genevieve's just too much. Evangeline's too frilly, Evelyn's too boring, blech. I hate that I'll fall for a nn and not be able to find a full name I can use, because I just can't stand the thought of using a nn on its own (Jack and Tess notwithstanding).
