    Whimsical but not OTT?

    I'm curious as to what names you think are whimsical - but not overly so. Names with a touch of whimsy but still usable.
    Switching careers and becoming an RN! Sadly mommy plans will have to wait until that's done. Still loving names though!

    I think it depends on your definition of "usable." Here are some that I find whimsical that most people would consider "normal" and usable:

    Ivy
    Willow
    Ruby
    Vienna
    Cadenza
    Pearl
    Opal
    Lark
    ...basically, I think word names are whimsical!

    Others that I find whimsical that I personally consider usable but that other people may argue include:

    Winola
    Cilla
    Pepper
    Chella
    Briar
    Timber
    Ceil
    Pola

    I realize that people's definitions of "usable" and "whimsical" will vary somewhat, but that ok...even a bit of the point! Thank you for sharing, you listed some lovely names. I don't think a name has to be "normal" per say to be "usable".

    I think nature and celestial names seem to be whimsical to me. I like these:

    Aurora
    Luna
    Marigold
    Wisteria (possibly nn Wish)
    Andromeda
    Alhena
    Lyra
    Gemma

    and for some reason Georgiana comes to mind! I love the idea of a whimsical name and am excited to see what other people say!
