Plea for some honest feedback on list after revamp!
Hello there you lovely people,
A few months ago, the manhalf and I decided on some Number Ones for when we start trying at some point in the next 18 months (we're planners!). They are, provisionally:
Annora Mary Hazel and Edmund Henry Hugh.
Following that, I took a few months off from 'naming'. Then tonight I felt inspired to majorly revamp my lists, keeping in mind that the above are probably fixed. Unfortunately, I love a lot of similar names, so this has ruled out many of my favourites (including Number Twos Rosemary and Hugh)
Thus I am in great need of some feedback on our new options. I've also added my concerns, so please just tell me as honestly (stop right before brutal) as you can if these are valid & your general opinions. Need to sort out my feels!
As a hypothetical sister for Annora "Annie":
- My concern is I don't have a solid nn option for this, I like V and Very but would probably only use these occasionally unlike Annie/ Ed which would probably be used 50-60% of the time.
- Worry that this is too 'pretty', I prefer more of a feminine-but-steely vibe. Also not sure of 'Jules' as a nn.
- Would want to use the nn 'Sephie' after a namesake, is this too counterintuitive?
- She'd have the same initials as me, so not ideal.
- Way more 'wacky' than Edmund & Annora... or perfect?
Then the following I like but I'm not sure I love:
Gwendolen "Gwen" or even Guinevere "Gwen"?!
I will be eternally grateful for any/all feedback. Any suggestions welcome too, new names are always a pleasure (think old-fashioned but not dull, ideally with an adorable nn)!
&, if anyone's feeling even more helpful, the boys' version is here.
Thanks in advance (& apologies for this looong post)!
