I don't get how people are still naming their babies Sophia Grace. That has to be the most freaking popular combo. Like Samantha Marie was when I was growing up. How boooooring. Names should be a unique identifying quality. If I hear another Sophia Grace, I'll bash my head on the wall. I also don't get Peyton on a girl. It doesn't even sound nice. Blah.
On name berry, I don't understand a lot of your names! Ophelia is one. It makes me think of pedophilia. You only have to add 3 letters. Ped-Ophelia. Yuck. I also don't like the feel-ya part in it. I do love Odelia as a substitute.
I also don't understand Oscar or Atticus or Eugene. They seem too hipster-y for me anyways.Girls:
Brenna, Coraline, Cordelia, Elodie, Francesca, Gianna, Helena, Ingrid, Margaret, Marilyn
Alaric, Griffon, Ivan, Joesph, Kenneth, Lucian, Nero, Orion, Phillip, Samson

There's a Greenlandic girls name, Arnatsiaq, which means "little woman" (or something like that) in Kalaallisut and in theory that is really sweet ... only, if you mispronounce it (which is very easy to do), it changes meaning from "little woman" to "little shit" which isn't the most flattering nickname one can get. Why people are still naming their children that is beyond me.Zelia/Elja • Nineteen • Name and history nerd from an early age • I have a blog.

I used to didn't get Imogen, but after I know the meaning, I can see the appeal.
Right now, I don't get Sloane (Sloppy Sloane), Margot (Maggot?), Briar, Greer, Mazarine (Margarine?), etc. Also Beatrice (I know, I know.. She's a nb darling) and Penelope (I guess Penelope is actually pretty, I just dislike the nn Penny).Call me Cynthia, Angie, or Luna.
