Thread: Popular Names You Love but...
August 1st, 2013 01:38 AM #11
If I reach a point where I can't find a name I like as much as a top 50 name, I'd still consider using it.
From experience thought, I had like 5 Amandas in my class and you'd have to refer to them as Amanda H., Panda, *insert last name*... it just got ridiculous when you'd have to stop a conversation to specify which Amanda you were referring to. I thought it ruined the beauty of the name by having to refer to the person either by their last name or an alternate name. Even the nicknames were of the surname (which is why I stopped as I didn't want to post people's last names on the internet). So for me it was just from personal experience.
In all honesty, I just took the qualities I liked from the name and searched for a name containing those qualities and they're out there. I even combined qualities from 2 names I loved to search for a new name. It's hard to find 1 name with all the same qualities from a previous one, so i sort of cut and paste (without overtly creating) to get there
I'm just one of those that would prefer to keep a name to myself until I'm 6 months pregnant as my friends/family members are the type of people to use name you like before you do. When I'm pregnant you'd be the first test audience for my names.
