Thread: Oui ou Non?

  1. #16
    Thank you guys so much! Honoria is actually Hon-noree-ah, it's hard to explain, but the nor + ree are smooshed into one syllable . I definitely agree on the trendy thing, my name (Haley) was quite trendy, but Adelaide, Ottilie, Ophelia, Isadora + Clementine aren't really trendy at all. As far as I know, trendy's one of those names that explode in popularity overnight? haha.

    The names are::

    Adelaide - Y
    Agatha - N - Still a little rooted in old lady for me, and I know that is coming back, but this one just does not appeal to me at all.
    Antonia - Y
    Athena - Y
    Augusta - Y
    Averina - N - I'm not even sure how to pronounce this or if it is a real name.
    Azalea - Y
    Bronte - Y - BUT not as a first name. I just can't see it. But a great middle.
    Cecilia - N - I cannot tell you specifially why, but this is one of my mosted hated names.
    Clementine - N - Why not Tangerine? I just don't see the appeal of this one at all.
    Cressida - Y
    Edith - Y - A grandma name I can get behind
    Eleanor - Y
    Evangeline - Y
    Florence - Y
    Genevieve - Y
    Georgiana - Y
    Honoria - Y
    Isadora - Y
    Jessamine - Y
    Lillian - Y
    Louisa - Y
    Lucinda - Y
    Margaret - Y
    Marie - Y - Would be refeshing to see this used as a first name.
    Martha - N - Soooo dated to me.
    Millicent - Meh. I like Millie a lot, but not sure about the full name....
    Nerissa - Y
    Ophelia - Y
    Ottilie - Y
    Rowena - Y
    Roxanne - N - 1980s anyone?
    Sylvia - Y
    Tabitha - Y
    Tallulah - Y
    Vivienne - Y

    Overall, this is a great list. LOTS on there that I love or am crushing on. Only a few missteps for me, but they are mainly just NMS, not names that are so out there I can't see them on a child. None of these are beyond use. Except, for me, Clementine. But I know that one generally gets much love from the berry community.
