What would YOU name my kids? (sort of a game, if you guys join in)
I had this conversation a while ago with my siblings, of what we would name each others' kids based on our personalities and stuff like that. We never really got to my turn before the conversation went a different direction, and I've been wondering since then: what would people name my kids if they were me?
So I thought this might be a fun game. Knowing some basic information about me, what would you name my kids? (Obviously anyone who likes the idea is free to join in as well!)
A brief overview of me: I'm a 25 year old girl with super curly brown hair, brown eyes, sort of a peaches-and-cream skin tone. I have a BS in a social science and am working towards getting a higher degree; ultimately I want a Ph.D. The first love of my life was literature, and I am a big collector of books. My dream home is one where every wall is also a built-in bookshelf, especially hallways. I enjoy cooking. I love Indian and Mexican foods. Indie, folk, and alternative rock music (think Mumford & Sons, Meaghan Smith, Seabird, Punch Brothers, etc.) are my favorites, but I like all music. I'm the middle child in a family of all girls. My favorite colors are blue and grey; I hate the color red. Politically I'm moderate. I'm an introvert. My favorite tv shows are Doctor Who, Warehouse 13, Gilmore Girls, and The Mindy Project. I love doing research. I love museums. My favorite artist is Van Gogh and sometimes I cry when I think about him. I have a mild obsession with all things British (more England/Scotland, less Wales/Northern Ireland). My favorite quality is my ability to laugh at myself/not take things too seriously.
Is this enough to give you an idea of me? What would you name my kids?
And if you like the idea, join in! I'd love to tell you what I'd name your kids!!I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.
My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.

Hmm, this sounds interesting!
I can also picture you using these names:
Alasdair, Sholto, Hamish Eilidh, Isla, Annabel, Cordelia, Octavia, Valentine, Balthasar, Fitzwilliam, Oskar, Atticus, Barnaby, Gulliver, Huckleberry, Jasper, Marius, Silas, Calliope, Evangeline, Bryony, Aurora and Isadora.
My turn: I'm 17, but mature for my age (apparently). I have red hair, blue eyes and am covered in freckles. I have very pale skin. I wear glasses for reading. Next year I hope to start my Bachelor Degree of Art/Science at university. I love literature and history and I also love to bake. I read as much as possible and I sometimes think I was born in the wrong era. I hope to end up working in Forensics and living in England. I love Europe, especially Britain and Italy. I am pretty much fluent in Italian. I like older music, from the 50's-90's. I do like some new music such as Florence + the Machine, Evanescence, Matt Corby, Birdy, Adele and etc. My favourite colours are red and purple. My favourite shade is black. I prefer silver to gold and I don't like the colours yellow and brown. My favourite TV shows are Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dexter, Gossip Girl, Law and Order: SVU, That 70's Show...I love to laugh and I love two middle names.
Ignatius - Jasper - Hugo - Edmund - Henry - Oliver - Rupert - Felix - Percy - August - Atticus - Amias - Otto - Barnaby - Arthur - Ezra - Hector - Charles
Antigone - Hermione - Harriet - Cordelia - Violet - Persephone - Beatrice/Beatrix - Clementine - Ottilie - Florence - Octavia - Drusilla - Agnes - Ida - Matilda - Xanthe

I agree with fiammetta's choices for you!
My choices for Fiammetta (that are not listed in her favorites):
Fiora Endellion Maeve
Romola Merewen Lark
Apologies about the two middle names, I'm not very good with combos
I'm 20, and currently studying a BA in International Studies. I have long, wavy light brown hair and blue eyes. I read books like all the time, although I wouldn't say I read many of the classics but I do love historical fiction. I write stories, and play video games 'a lot.' I'm also sort of proficient speaking and writing Mandarin. My favorite kind of music tends to be labeled as Indie Folk/Pop. I love my home country Australia, and I would say I'm a little patriotic...But not too much to bet on the cricket. My favorite TV shows are Veronica Mars, Chuck and Red Dwarf but nothing beats the 'North and South' mini series with Richard Armitage. Swoon!Marko | Susanna | Kit | Rosemary

I picture you using names like Sophie, Eleanor, Tristan, and Ash, Sunshine.
My turn: I have curly brown hair, hazel eyes, and a few freckles. I like music. Mainly The Beatles, though I do like some newer stuff like P!nk, and 1D. But mainly The Beatles. My favorite colors are blue and green and pink. I'm an aspiring singer/songwriter and I'm learning bass guitar. I want to learn drums and normal guitar, too. My favorite TV show is Doctor Who. I love laughing and making people laugh. I get embarrassed about anything I'm interested in. At the current moment, I'm embarrassed to show I like the Beatles in my family. I don't know why. My favorite quality of me is that I can bounce back from things easily. Bullies don't affect me at all.
