    Almond

    What would you think if you ran into a little girl named Almond?
    I'm not feeling incredibly profound at the moment. Check back later.

    For some reason I think of the movie 'Where the Heart Is' where the one character had named her five children after her pregnancy cravings. Brownie, Praline, Baby Ruth, etc... I would think of something like that.

    Maybe as a middle name (probably not imho), but as a first name I think Amandine is much more appropriate. I would definitely not like it if my name was Almond.

    I think Almond is appropriate as Melody, June, Winter, Autumn, Destiny, North, Daisy...
    Look these: http://nameberry.com/blog/words-in-the-top-1000

    I find Almond OK, but prefer Almondine and Amandine.

    Honestly, gut reaction- I would think it was weird. Like her parents found Olive "just too popular now" and went for Almond instead to be unique.
