What do you think of some new names that I've been considering?
I have a top 5/6, but some of these new names are giving them a run for their money - although I'm not sure if they have staying power.
What do you think of...
Lucy - Too cutesy? I'm not sure if it would age all that well and I'm not a fan of any of the longer names that lend itself to nickname Lucy.
Josephine - I think it's beautiful and love the nickname Josie, but I'm not sure if they feminization of Joseph will eventually make me regret using it.
Mary - Is it too religious? Too popular? Too boring? I am not religious at all and I normally don't like really popular, uber traditional names; however, I find this name beautiful and sweet.
Susanna - I'm not sure if I like this name in itself or I just love the idea of nicknames Zanna or Sookie.
Tessa -I've always thought hissy, 'ss' names were a little unsubstantial but my mom kept mentioning this name when I was pregnant with my daughter and I'm sort of liking it now. I really like the nn Tess, but what kind of girl do you picture with this name? For some reason, I feel like it has a trendy feel to it...?
Ramona - I've always liked this name and grew up adoring the books. I love the nn Mona, but are Mona and Nora just too close? Not to mention - "Moan-ah"..?Mama to Nora.

Lucy is a little cutesy and not my favorite lucy name. However I think it is a nice name. My mom just uses the term Lucy gooesy, so that what I think but I think that saying is kind of old, so I don't believe you need to worry about that.
Josephine-I like it, I just prefer it as a middle name.
Mary-I think it is lovely. It is in the top 100, however it is not as popular as it was before. I haven't meet a little girl named Mary.
Susanna is lovely, I just prefer the Susannah spelling.
Tessa- I like it, although I like Tess more. It has a more vintage feel to me. I picture a girl with dark hair kind of like Gemma Arteton(sp?) in Tess of the dubervilles
Ramona is nms probably because of the moan-ah thing. It is still a nice name.Raquel-22 year old who loves names, books, and languages

Lucy - it's OK
Josephine - dislike, find ti masculine and ugly
Mary - yes, uber religious. at least to me. That's the name religious parents will chose if they have a child (at least in Croatia, maybe it's different in USA)
Susanna - I like Susanna, and prefer it without a h. Susanna, alternative spelling rules! (at least Susanna)
Tessa - it's OK
Ramona - I once love it and I still find it nice.Girl

Lucy - I think it is cute, but overused.
Josephine - Yuck. Never liked it or Joseph.
Mary - Not too popular in my area. And I love Mary Tess. Just sayin'. Could go by a double name or just Mary or just Tess.
Susanna - No.
Tessa -I like Tess. Love Tess of the ......(insert proper spelling here)
Ramona - Love it, but have Mona. Once people are used to calling Ramona, I think it would be ok.
