    Thinking about Blossom...

    For some reason, Blossom is appealing to me right now. It's just so pretty sounding with equally pretty imagery, but I'm not sure how well it would work.

    I'm wondering if 1) it's too sweet 2) it sounds too much like the word bosom? 2) it's too celeb-baby?

    Blossom Matilda and Blossom Guinevere are a couple of combos I like. What do you think?

    I think it's sweet, but it does remind me of the powerpuff girls; I don't think it's a bad thing, though.

    I really like Blossom Guinevere

    Oh gosh I hadn't thought about the Powerpuff Girls.
    I think it's an entirely positive association - but I guess it's sort of weird naming a child after a character in a show you grew up loving haha.

    Thanks for the response!

    I'm old enough to remember the cheesy Blossom sitcom, but it isn't the first thing I think of when I hear the name. It is a major GP of mine and I think it is similar to Charlotte in that it manages to be very romantic and feminine without being "girly" if you kwim.

    Don't have anything against Blossom as a name, but it's better in the middle. It is childish, but Guinevere Blossom sounds great.
