    Someone please write one on Chinese names, especially what is considered feminine/masculine, pretty/dull, old/new. I've been trying to figure these things out, but have made limited progress.

    It would be interesting to see a post on the urban legends like Orangejello, L-A, etc and if there are records that show real people have these names. I don't have the detective skills for this though. Mythbusters meets Nameberry!

    I'm just a third-culture girl with an affinity for names.

    I would be interested in writing a blog about Chinese names, hopefully some of my language skills come in handy.

    [E] Turns out there are a few handy articles in the databases, and no need to pay for them - thanks university!

    I love the idea of an unusual saints' names feature - there are several lists about saints' names, but perhaps a select few unusual gems complete with their stories would be a good idea for a blog post?

    Blogs I'd love to see:

    Chanukah baby names, perhaps in time for Thanksgivukkah? I wrote a list of nearly 30 names last year, but I'm not sure why I never sent it in.

    I'd love a blog, more like a recurring segment, profiling names from each of the 50 states focusing on great place names or people of interest. I wrote a list for OK one time, full of gems like Guthrie, Adair, Henryetta, and the like. Or you could just write the same thing for France (Loire, Calais, Romilly, Bretagne) and I'd be in heaven.

    How about baby name anachronisms on TV?

    Names of tragic couples? Just in time for Valentine's Day (a little morbid I know). I'm thinking ... Romeo & Juliet, Heloise & Abelard, Sid & Nancy.

    Last idea, what about a list of names that sound pretty but are actually used in medicine?

    Cheers, Poppy
