I'd love to know what names you picked! Of your ones that got away, I love...
Not so keen on...
Abraham - Too biblical for me.
Hal - Too nicknamey, but I like as a nn for Harold or Henry.
Jeb - Too hokey and too nicknamey.
Jed - See Jeb.
Patrick - Every crazy kid I've ever taught has been named Patrick!
Rowan - Nice enough name, but I just don't like it for some reason.
Barbara - Too old-fashioned.
Golda - See Barbara.Audrey - Beatrice - Clara - Daphne - Jane - Margaret - Susannah - Violet
August - Barnaby - Edward - Frederick - Henry - Rupert - Theodore - Walter

Gabriel - I love Gabriel but shy away from it sometimes because I don't love Gabe. It's a great name though.
Leo - I don't like Leo, I do like Leon or Leonardo/Leonidas though.
Rowan - Love it, but love Ronan more.
Jed - Nickname-y to me. Do like it, as a nickname for Jedidiah.
Jeb - Like it less than Jeb but it's okay.
Abraham - I like it. I'd call him Bram and never Abe for short though/
Hal - Prefer Hale. Or using Hal as a NN for Henry/Harold, I think of Hal as a nickname.
Patrick - Love it, so sad my husband won't let me use it.
Golda - Love it. Family name to me. Really really old-fashioned but I don't hate it. Also like Marigold, NN Goldie.
Penelope - Love it to bits.
Pearl - Dislike. Like a lot of other gemstone names more. Opal, Peridot, even my not-favourite Ruby...
Barbara - Can't deal with Barbara, sorry.

Gabriel (lifelong favourite)-I really like this one.
Leo (ditto)-I like it but part of me wants it to be a nickname for a longer name yet not really loving the longer forms of it
Rowan-I think more girl with this name.
Jed-Too biblical and I'm not a fan of nickname names.
Jeb-Same as Jed
Abraham-It's all right but I'm not fond of the nickname Ham so I would stick to Abe for a nickname.
Hal-I'd like it as a nickname for Henry.
Patrick (being used as a middle)-I LOVE it! It's my son's name. Although he probably fits into the crazy kid category that sarahmezz mentioned.
Golda-Not a fan seems
Pearl (being used as a middle)-I really like this one although I think it is really great as a middle name.
Barbara-I think of Barbara Bush and I don't know of any nicknames for it that I like at all.Mother to: Patrick Werner (3/10) , Mary Claire (06/12) and Margaret Rose (05/15)
