The reason for most of my spelling weirdness is to be clear on pronunciation. Elouise has a U because it's EL-oo-eez, not EL-oyce. Roselind is ROSE-lind, not ROS-a-lind. Gwenyth is GWEN-ith, not GWIN-eth. Casady is CASS-uh-dee, not CASS-ih-dee. Renne is REN, not REH-nay. The extra letters in Dashiel and Lorain don't really do much, though I do rather like Loraine. And with Walter, well, I just like the nickname, not the full name. Sorry if this comes across as rude, I'm just trying to be clear.

Whoops. Ha, I forgot about this. :) I didn't go through and look for combos in particular that I like, but I did find names you suggested that weren't on my list that I like.
I like Alisamber too, but I'd never be able to use it, ha. :) ;)
And yeah, I definitely stole Torrin from you... I feel like I say it differently with two Rs, like it rolls off the tongue more. Or I'm just weird. Also an option.
It's funny that you mention the spelling Sebastien, since that was actually my first choice of spelling, but I changed my mind right before posting this. The more I think about it, though, the more I prefer it over Sebastian.I’m just trying to behave as I think a friend should behave. Granted, I haven’t had much practice.
