I'm on the fence for Wednesday and other calendar-related names. I like a lot of them--Tuesday, January, September--but I can't decide if they're usable or not. I've seen people talking about wanting to use November and bemoaning the fact that there's no good nickname - but if the main reason you feel you can't use a name is because there's no everyday version, then it seems to me that the name isn't usable. I don't think Wednesday Addams is a point against use of Wednesday; if anything it's at least an occasion when you can hear someone being called by the name regularly in every day conversation and see how you like it. In general, I find the more unusual calendar names quirky and adorable, something about them draws me in. But can I picture a woman named Wednesday working in the office next to mine or a nametag with Wednesday at the department store? Apparently my definitive answer is maybe. I like it but would not be daring enough to use it. And if I'm not daring enough to name my child that, can I presume that my child will be bold enough to carry it off?

I know a little girl named Wednesday - it's lovely, and she only makes me love it more. Her parents are definitely what you'd call eccentrics, but it's still a great name, and she pulls it off very well.★ O L I V I A ★
