    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?
    Alice. Marian. Juno. Branwen. Helena. Polly. Ophelia. Rosalind. Cosima. Matilda. Edith. Anna. Claudia. Frances.
    Arthur. Henry. Caspian. Stanley. Justice. Dexter. Edmund. Thomas. Nathaniel. Forest. Oscar. Lucian. Peter.

    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.

    Isaac is my all time favorite name. I picture a five year old little boy with dark blue eyes and freckles across his nose. He's also missing his right front tooth and is mischievous. Despite all this his favorite things are playing with his puppy and playing video games with his dad.
    If I had a baby right now they'd be:
    Isaac
    or
    Blaire
