    Name Imagery

    When you hear your favourite names - or any name, for that matter - what images come to mind?

    For example, when I hear the names August and Ronan, I imagine twin boys about 5 years old, with blonde hair and grey eyes. They live in a brownstone apartment in New York City, but were born to English expatriate parents. I imagine them sitting and reading books together on a rainy day.

    Likewise, when I hear the name Alice I think of a four year old brunette with a passion for dance. I imagine her wearing a fluffy tutu an a silver leotard, practicing for her next ballet recital.

    I really enjoy reading these, so what images come to mind when you hear your favourite names?

    Linus is a lanky, nerdy hypochondriac carrying a kleenex around, with a nasally voice and a tendency to whine. I think the name brings this image to mind for me because it rhymes with "sinus".

    Hahahaha! Even without the sinus association I still imagine a little nerdy boy with the name Linus.

    Luna is my favorite name right now and I can clearly picture this beautiful starry-eyed little girl, about 4 or 5 years old. She has very fair skin, long dark brown hair that hangs down her back, big sparkling brown eyes and she loves to read. She's not exactly shy, but also not extremely outgoing. She's very dream-like, preferring to stay in her own little fantasy world.

    Not neccessarily my favourites, but when I hear Daisy, Victoria, Alice, Lily, Sybil, Emily, Lucy, Ruby etc, it makes me think of little Edwardian girls. I think of ribbons in long hair and pretty dresses with white pinnies and petticoats and woollen tights & little black hobnail boots! And they sit together in the nursery at the top of the house, having a tea party with their little china dolls which have those scary eyes. If you've ever seen The Woman In Black, think of the opening scene, before they jump out of the window

    Similarly, I think of Henry, Nicholas, Albert, Joseph, George, Arthur, Percy & Sidney in little sailor suits playing with wooden spinning tops and trains. Outside by the pond, they sail their mini wooden boats and catch minnows in glass jam jars. And on hot sumer afternoons they play cricket with grandpapa on the lawn before having buns and lemonade for tea.

    I think I was born in the wrong decade :/
