    Let's start with this: California Rossè is amazing, though I like her pen name [California Starr] a lot better than I like her real last name. Rossè is a violent-sounding last name to me.

    I absolutely love her names. They're very unique and definitely catch your attention, as a matter of fact, that's how I read her first book, the title was "Careless in November" and it sounded okay, so I picked it up and read the back, and I was like: "Woah, did she really name her main character Wanderlust?" and she did. Ms. Starr is a unique person and a unique author. I definitely love "Tell Me Your Name" (How is it not as famous as some of the [terrible] books out there?), "Talking to the Dead", "Careless in November", "Blind", "Trade Mistakes", and "Flowers for a Ghost".

    My all-time favourite California Starr names out there, though are:

    Whereas
    Wanderlust
    Coffee
    Trivyal
    Everlasting
    Mainstream
    Foreshadow
    Dysmay
    Mizree
    Galaxy
    Stary
    February
    Saturday
    Iverson
    Ryker
    and Indie [Okay, but what California Starr fan doesn't love Indie?]

    Though, I think her names are more Pasten-Vagabond than Hipster. Hipster names, to me, at least, are more: Iris, Layla, and Sylvester type names.

    See, California is a Pasten-Vagabond (said so in her autobiography [which is halarious]) and I remember Googling to find out what that was, and apparently their names come from something that was important to them, so I guess in their culture, names like these are pretty popular, I have no idea. I just love them.

    There was a thread a week or so ago about books and names. Seeing these names on the blurb of a novel would make me roll my eyes and put it down I'm afraid.

    Never heard of this person but Everlasting is a guilty pleasure. Those flowers are gorgeous but I feel I'd be tempting fate by naming a child that

    Shea * Jade * Azure * Eden * Fox * Greer
    Lotus * Tallulah * Noor * Jasper * Linden * Arden
