Bookish and Vintage girls
I am so picky when it comes to names. I will love one name for a month then stop liking it all together. I don't know how I will ever commit to a name. When it comes to boy names I have a good list that I love. I know that I would be happy using any of them.
This is the boy list:
I have this idea that my daughter will be bookish and spunky. I want her to have a fun name that is uncommon. I would love it to have a spunky nickname with it. I used to love the name Louise and I loved that it has the nickname Lou. A name that I am loving right now is Esme. I don't know if it as the right feel, but I think it has a little bit of elegance and a little bit of spunkiness.
