    That sounds like a good theory to me, although I do think it's a little sad that we have to somewhat base our name choices on whether or not other people will make rude/mean remarks about it.

    There are certain names on Nameberry that are considered "good" and, if you don't like them, there's something a bit wrong with you. I'm thinking...Beatrice, Cecilia, Josephine, etc. When I mention one of these names to an outsider and they don't like it, I can't help but think they're a bit of a philistine. My husband's cousin recently named her daughter Paloma. Everyone screwed up their faces, but I rejoiced! Honestly, Berries have x1000 better taste than most non-Berries! It's just true and we all known it

    @celianne - You described me to a tee
    Audrey - Beatrice - Clara - Daphne - Flora - Jane - Mabel - Susannah

    Arthur - Barnaby - Edward - Frederick - Henry - Rupert - Theodore - Walter

    Probably something like that? I mean most people would categorize names alphabetically, or by origins--not flow, style, sound, meaning, connotation, history...
    Hahaha Yes, we kind of are.

    Non-berries just don't know a good name when they see one... :P

    I like very different names to most people on here I would name my daughter Jaidyn before Agatha.

    My mum finds Alice and Harriet old ladies name despite her being 40 and having a friend named Alice. My sister wants to name her daughter Lauren keep in mind shes 12 and by then it would be a 'mum' name.

    I find some of the names on nameberry very unusual Thisbe? Wren? Arthur? Lark?
