I actually love all of the popular names. Not their uniquely spelled counterparts, that's a bit silly to me, but the sounds of the names themselves are quite nice.
It's funny how everyone (including myself) is always worried about how a name will grow with a child, when in fact, it always will grow well with the child. There are no 'youthful names' and 'elderly names,' just names that are popular now and names that were popular then.
I don't care if a name was made up. If I made it up, well, I guess I get to choose what it means. So there. Also, if everyone only used 'real' names all through history, we'd be named things like 'UgUg.' Language evolves, so can names. Deal with it. It's not hipster. It's human.
lolnicknameswut? I only have nicknames because my name is Cecilia. Cecilia is a positive GOLDMINE for nicknames. Cece (like Cease) CC, Celia, Celi, Cel, Ceal, Lia... My brothers don't have them, the majority of my friends don't. I LIKE nicknames, they're fun, but I mean... so what? I'll probably call my kids by their full name.I’m just trying to behave as I think a friend should behave. Granted, I haven’t had much practice.
