Why the hate of Imogene?
I have a very un-berry confession: i love Imogene.
I know the general berry consensus is that Imogen is lovely and Imogene is icky.
When I envision Imogen I see a buttoned up, prim & proper girl wearing stiff mary-janes in the snow, but when i envision Imogene I see a girl running through a field of tall grass in the hot summer sunshine.
I prefer the latter, easier going vision.
What do you berries think? Is there an image of Imogene that prevails, that I'm just not aware of?Mama to big kitty Jasper
a feel for the names i adore:

To me, and sorry it's going to sound harsh, but Imogene sounds so hickish to me. I have the same "beautiful girl running through a field, playing and using her imagination" image for Imogen as you have for Imogene. Imogen to me sounds like Imagine and makes me think of a little fairy girl frolicking in the sun.
Now, the lovely image I have for Imogene is from Fried Green Tomatoes and that Imogene nn Idgie is a super great association, so I don't hate it, just the sound of it if that makes sense.Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^
