    sawdust: Thank you! And I love your imagery!

    giinkies: Thanks!

    tct1219: Nature word names aren't for everyone, but I'm not surprised that Maple is winning. Hespera is pretty unusual and most people aren't familiar with it. I just assumed that people would pick Maple by default. I'm pleasantly surprised that the votes are so close though! I agree - Maple is down to earth and familiar, but uncommon, whimsical, and special! I don't think people would have much trouble pronouncing Hespera. It's pronounced almost exactly how it's spelled. Either way, I'm not too worried about that, people would learn how to say it. Aurora is one of my favorites, and if I can include it in the name, I would rather have it there! Thx

    nymphalis: Thanks! And I didn't know, thanks for telling me. ^_^

    c@29: Thanks! To me, Hespera is both a starry, snowy winter evening, and a starry, lush spring evening. Hespera has multiple faces for me.

    Have you thought about Aurora Maple instead? Aurora would make a superb first.

    I have fond associations with Maple, but it's just not magic to me.

    I love Aurora, but it's way too popular and common for me as a first name.

    I love Hespera but I detest Winter... :/ Both Maple and Aurora are neutral to me though so I went for that.
