    Names I Used in Sixth Grade

    So back when I was in sixth grade, we weren't allowed to draw in our religion books. That was disrespectful. So instead, I names them. After all, inscribing a name on their forehead wasn't drawing; it was writing. I recently found this sixth grade religion book, and the names I wrote were mostly mainstream, as I was not yet a namenerd. I figured I'd share the list anyhow:

    Girls:
    Tasha
    Rebecca
    Emily
    Leah
    Clara (I used to think I made up this name from Claire and Cara...)
    Sarah
    Sasha
    Abby
    Kiesha
    Naomi (I actually knew a Naomi, so this was mainstream to me)
    Racheal (2) (I could never spell this right )
    Tara
    Colleen
    Deigh-gee (I made up a lot of "Asian" names as a kid...)

    Boys:
    Conner
    Joseph
    Jacob
    Joe
    Robert
    Mikeal (I think I meant to spell it this way to be kre8ive...*shudder*)
    Mike
    Tommy
    Leonard
    Tom (2)
    Steve
    Patrick
    Matthew
    John

    Out of everything, I still somewhat like Clara, Emily, Tara, Patrick, and John - and maybe Matthew, Colleen and Rebecca. My, how my style has changed!

    Well, I think that your list wasn't extremely bad after all. Some names like Clara, Leah, Sasha, Emily, Patrick, John or Joseph are cute. I actually really like Clara and Leah.

    It's weird to see old names list, for example, I used to like lot of "unique" names that now make me cringe, or at least don't appeal me at all. Five year ago, I was decided that my kids would be Cielo Fucshia and Luna Violetta I was also planning to have twin girls, to call them Mia and Pia.

    I actually like most of the same names that I liked in middle school. While some names have changed a bit most of the names I loved then but won't use now is because my husband doesn't share my love of the name. I've always really liked traditional names.
