Thread: First Names Only - Pick a Top 5?
August 26th, 2013 04:20 PM #86
I am actually overwhelmed by the number of responses, and sadly I still have no real direction! Those of you that have commented have definitely helped me knock a few out of consideration, but I still have no clear top 5 for myself, the names I really love feel somewhat unattainable in real life, for a little girl to live up to! I'm not sure I can picture a Lavender or a Corisande not being overwhelmed by such a big name. I also feel funny saying some of the names on the list aloud, and we were talking about something smelling like Lavender the other night, and it just felt funny saying Lavender as a thing, when I am also trying to picture a person! /issues
Lachlan Alexander - Evander 'Anders' Alcott - Cadmus Walter - Theron Xavier - Thatcher William - Peregrine North - Dresden Alasdair
Natalie Winter - Adelaide Pearl - Hermione Jane - Corisande Fable - Lavender Alina/Irie - Cordelia Autumn - Virginia Joy- Odessa Faye

Well, if you're truly worried about "big names" and offbeat names, then I think you're answering your own question.
You can always hold on to those as middle names and then use them when you're feeling spunky.
Have you talked about any of these with your SO? Or at least felt him out about more uncommon names? That might be the nail in the coffin for a good number and it would be hard to get super attached to a name only to find out that a childhood bully or old girlfriend or mean past teacher bore one of these.
You definitely have a lot on your list that aren't at all "crazy" or out of this world. You have a good mix of popular, usable, unique, and very different. But when it comes to an actual human, it certainly feels different.
Here are the ones that I'd consider interesting but very usable:
If it were me I'd probably go with Annika Wren or Coral AdelaideLivy/Lucy : Geneva/Gwen : Coralie/Alice : Noelle/Eve
Eli/Bennett : Jude/Zane: Luke/Leo : Levi/Phineas
