Is this firmly in the guilty pleasure zone or a quirky middle name choice?
Persephone has become a new guilty pleasure of mine. I couldn't see myself using it as a first name because the names I like for first names tend to be more traditional names like Madeleine and Caroline. It doesn't fit with them at all. I have been thinking of adding quirkier names in the middle such as Persephone to spice up the combinations.Dany | Mama to a kit named Zola Bastet

It's effortless choice, very classic. She's a lovely name with a lot of class. I can so see Persephone as a great first and middle name but I think I have been influenced by nameberry as this name is flying around everywhere which makes me fall for Persephone even harder and see her as a potential choice rather than a GP. I think she could work a short first name. Like Claire Persephone or Joyce Persephone.

The name itself is pretty, but I wouldn't want my child named after a flimsy goddess who is kidnapped and trapped in the Underworld, married without consent, and powerless to leave until springtime. I have a similar issue; I adore the name Ophelia, but the Shakespearean maiden was exceptionally tragic. Classic names like Madeleine don't have that specific connotation.Amedeo Enjolras Aristotle Leonardo Archer Olivier Mischa Liam Caspian Benedict Theodore FitzwilliamRosalie Evangeline Mirabelle Ophelia Alice Elisabeth Stella Titania Artemis Cicely Margarethe Thalia Astrid
