1) Do you like the name?
I don't like it and I have no idea why because it is a perfectly good name. So, putting my own personal tastes somewhat aside here are my thoughts.
I like it better than Nathanial (which for some reason I have a hard time pronouncing). It is a classic and likeable name. Has been used consistently for generations. It is biblical which is a plus for many people.
2) Who do you imagine with this name?
My co-worker's hubby is named Nathan so that is all I picture when I hear the name.
3) How awful would Nathan be with brothers such as Bram, Rory, Emile, or Dashiell (Dash)?
I don't think Nathan sounds bad with any of those names. Dashiell does stick out a bit like a sore thumb though. Sibsets have to be really really mismatched for me to notice or care.
4) What names would you put in a sibset with Nathan that aren't as common/classic?
Uncommon: Nolan, Leander, Darren, Marcus,
Common/Classic:Jacob, Andrew, Adam, Noah, Seth, Benjamin, Matthew, David
5) How bad would the flow be with middle names Richard Dale?
Nathan Richard Dale sounds great.Mama Bear to Serenity (gone January 17th, 2011) and Luther Wolf
