Thread: Whimsical Name?

    Whimsical Name?

    I like names that have a sort of feel good, warm and cozy, slightly quaint, whimsical, almost fairytale feeling to them, like they belong in a classic children's story. There's a book that's quite a good example of this, actually. A children's book, perhaps you have read it? It's entitled The Penderwicks (a friend encouraged me to read it- i believe it to be quite popular). There are four daughters in the book, called Rosalind, Skye, Jane, and Batty, which is short for Elizabeth. The names are comfortable, familiar, but also slightly timeless. When I hear them, I think northeastern beaches and sea and hot chocolate and big sweaters and blankets and laughter and simplicity (i do hope im making sense here). Some names that I've been considering to fit under this category are: Elizabeth (but i'd call her Elizabeth, not Batty), Snow (I'm not sure if I'd ever use it, but it has the nice, quaint feel I'm looking for), Posy, and Ginny. If you can think of any others, it's much appreciated. I'm just trying to start another/expand my list of possibilities. Much thanks!
