    Favorite Names: A Problem

    It feels like all of my favorite names are losing their "specialness", one by one. First Francesca lost it, then Charlotte, and then Pryscilla! Has this been happening to anyone else? I need replacement names, too. Thanks

    Annabel/Annabella, Alice, Arabella, Clara, Dara, Della, Emmeline, Flora, Freya, Isadora, Josephine, Livia, Mara, Thea/Theodora, Violet/Violetta, Zara

    Favorite Boys:
    Archer, Blake, Bryce, Chandler, Charles/Charlie, Clark, Clayton, Clyde, Graham, Harlan, Rhett, Slade, Tate, Wyatt, Zane

    Oh, this happens more than you'd believe. More than I'd like it to, anyway. I usually will look around, find some new names I like, but eventually I'll settle back in love with the names I loved in the first place. Based on Francesca, Charlotte, Priscilla (?), and the names in your signature, what about:

    Aurelia
    Clementine
    Phoebe
    Adeline
    Serena
    Helena
    Cora
    Lucia/Lucy/Luciana/Lucilla
    Sybil/Sybilla

    Good luck!

    Yeah, I went through that too. Mostly because I started discovering other names I hadn't really considered or heard about before.
    I keep a long excel file and "hide" the names I don't love anymore. I usually come back to them every 6 months to see how I feel about them.

    Since you like Pryscilla (with a y? I prefer Priscilla it looks more streamlined) how about Temperance,
    Prudence, Fiona, Henrietta, Mariposa, Loretta, Josephine, and Noelle.
    Or are you looking for something a little more adventurous? Lorelei, Primrose, Ismene, Callista etc.

    Love that Sybilla, Estella, & Calista were suggested! I hope they don't become too popular. I like Ismene, but may prefer Ismay...

    What about Freya, Pomeline, Melusine...

    I really love Sapphira from your signature, it's lovely name.
