    Names I liked when I was younger would probably be called trendy now, two that stick at the forefront of my mind are Ruby and Roxy which I like from a very young age. When I was younger I was easily influenced by characters on television programmes that I watched, if I liked the character I would like the name. Nowadays though I have broadern my horizons in terms of names and am starting to like older names, Roberta and Erika being two of my favs at the moment. I was never really interested as boys names as a kid, one name that I was in love with for many years though was Brady - lord knows what I was thinking!
    Current Loves: Tobias Henry and Sebastian Keith

    When I was 16, my top two were Audrey & Sebastian.
    I still love them both, but Audrey got really popular. Popularity doesn't bother me in itself, but I saw in on peoples' lists with names like Addison, Peyton and Alexa... that's not the vibe I get from Audrey, so that ended up disappointing me.
    Sebastian is a name I'd totally use, but I had a family member named Sebastian and things went south with that part of the family (super messy divorce, really messed up stuff going on there), so I just think it'd be a bad call on my part to use it.

    My top 2 right now are Edmund & Seraphine. Edmund has been topping my list since I was 8 years old and my grade 3 English teacher read us "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe".
    I'm not really sure where Seraphine came from. My art prof mentioned her daughter, Seraphina, last semester and hearing it 'in real life' really struck me. My SO is really pushing for a French name, so that's when Seraphine came to the forefront.

    I've been keeping name lists since I was about 5 years old, though, so this is just a super small sampling.
    When I was in middle school I loved names like Jorie, Kendra & Sloane; Michael, Travis & Jacob. At that point, I liked girl names that were boyish and kewl and 'unique', and for boys, I liked the names of boys I had crushes on, hahahah.

    Eleanora, Iluna, Iris, Sela, Seraphine
    Balthazar, Bastian, Caius, Felix, Gideon

    In my old baby name book that I got when I was probably around twelve or so, there was a place to list your top five names for each sex. This is what I had listed:

    Boys
    William
    Christian
    Nicholas
    Patrick
    Jonathan

    Girls
    Zoe
    Stephanie
    Bridget
    Alexandra
    Serena

    Flashforward a couple of decades, and this is what the list would look like now:

    Boys
    Nicholas
    William
    Alexander
    Sebastian
    Gabriel

    Girls
    Zoe
    Catherine
    Veronica
    Penelope
    Elizabeth

    So, some differences, but still mostly the same style, I think. And I still really love all the names on the old list, even if they're not my absolute favorites anymore.

    Future Daughters: Isobel "Zoe" Theophania, Veronica "Vera" Seraphine

    Zoe ~ Catherine ~ Veronica ~ Penelope ~ Elizabeth ~ Daphne ~ Anastasia ~ Seraphina ~ Ophelia ~ Felicity
