    Mixy Matchy, Findy Shary

    So... I never make threads. Generally, this is because I tend to have a favourite name and stick with it for years and years without ever changing my mind. Up until a few years ago my favourite girl's name was Holly and I'd liked that since I was eleven. Aira now sits comfortably at the top of the pile and I don't see her shifting any time soon. Now, having a favourite-name-of-all-time can be a great thing:

    "I know exactly what I'd name a daughter if one appeared in my room right now, yippee!"

    ...but it can also be pretty boring.

    "I know exactly what I'd name a daughter if one appeared in my room right now, how dull..."

    I think this is the problem I'd like some help with. I don't like loving just one or two names with the passion of a steam train anorak; there is room in my heart for so many more if only I could find them! Below you will find a list of names I like enough to be first names, family names for middles and a list of other names I like. Your mission, should you choose to accept it is to help make up some fun combinations and maybe share some new names you think I might like to consider liking too! Beyond that, feel free to go wild! Comment on names with joyous abandon if you want to, but I know there are a lot so it's not totally necessary.

    I have simple tastes (read 'am exceptionally picky') and my criteria runs thusly. The name must be: a legitimate name, spelt correctly, not a surname* and not a word/place name. I'm open to names from any culture and tend to like the unusual and old fashioned.

    Just the girlys for now. Might do the boys in a day or two.

    Cheers guys! On with the show!
