    Currently the only books I'm reading are the ones for my English Literature exam this week.

    Enduring Love:
    Clarissa - I used to love this so much but I don't think I'd use it now
    Joe - I don't really like it, it seems quite common now
    Jed - I don't like it at all
    John (Logan) - I don't like John, but I really love Logan as a middle name

    The Great Gatsby:
    Jay (or James) - I don't like Jay, but James is a favourite for middle slot
    Gatsby - I would so name a dog this! Not a child's name, but a pet would be adorable
    Daisy - I don't really like this, it seems quite 'little girlish', especially for a grown woman
    Jordan - I don't like this for a girl or boy
    Tom - Too common for me, I think
    Wilson - I don't like this, maybe because a friend of mine has a dog called Wilson, so I can't see it on a child
    Myrtle - It's not a name I would use nowadays

    Rossetti's poetry:
    Christina (the poet) - This is quite a nice name, but NMS to actually use. I used to love Christiana
    Maude Clare - I would never use Maude today because I think it's past its time and won't be resurrected (at least not by me). Clare is nice but I prefer Clara
    Jessie - I like Jessica, with Jess for short (or Jesse for a boy), but I don't think I'd just use Jessie

    I believe that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

    I'm reading Anna Karenina (after seeing it got so much love on a Nameberry thread about books, haha), so lots of Russian names that are super hard to pronounce and spell... What I find interesting (and sometimes confusing) is how the characters get referred to in so many ways. Some are always referred to by their surnames and weren't given first names.

    Characters:
    Alexei (x2)
    siblings Anna and Stepan (Stiva)
    sisters Darya (Dolly), Natalya (Natalie) and Ekaterina (Kitty)
    Alexander
    brothers Sergei, Konstantin (Kostya) and Nikolai
    Marya
    Agafya
    Elizaveta (Betsy)
    Lydia
    Matvei
    Varvara (Varenka)
    Sergei (Seryozha)
    ~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3

    Favourite names:
    Girls: Azalea, Cordelia, Elizabeth, Rosalind, Portia, Victoria, Diana, Felicity, Juliet, Scarlett
    Boys: Fitzwilliam, Sebastian, Percival, Prospero, Orlando, Darcy... don't love many boys' names!
