Yikes!! Name decision time.... Attn: all berries!
So, I finally joined, after poking around the site for name ideas, and I thought it was time to share MY list with you.
Let me know the names you like, and the names you don't like (and why). After reading a lot of posts, I can see that some of you have some pretty strong opinions, so have at it!

I like the sound of Persephone but, the meaning is horrific. Not something I would personally name a child after, you know? I used to like Lisbeth until my brother jokes and says Lesbo - _ -
But I like Ingrid, Isolde, and especially Theodora because of it's meaning! Oh, and Millicent with the nickname Millie would be darling.

I prefer the vintage names like Millicent, Theodora, lisbeth for first names with the mythology/Irish sort of names for middles. I think the vintage names are really versatile and the more exotic adds spunk.
I think names like Pridwyn and Addfwyn have pronunciation issues built in unless you are familiar with Irish/Gaelic/welsh names. There seem to be many berries who love these names but I think most people in the US would find them difficult. That said there are some lovely names that fit this genre but I would choose more intuitive spellings if it was my child, however not made up spellings.
So if I was going for a combo
