Thread: Doll names
February 17th, 2014 02:19 PM #1
My parents are getting ready to move to a new place, and while they were packing up, my mom came across an old notebook of mine in which I listed the names of all my Barbie dolls. (I had a ton, so they couldn't all be Barbie and Ken! And some of these might have been my sister's dolls, because I don't remember having quite this many....) It was quite interesting to look back and see what names I loved over twenty years ago. A lot of these names I still really like, although I wasn't that great at combos back then.
Yvette Christine - Apparently Noelle and Yvette were twins, because I also noted that their birthday was Christmas.
Emily Sable - Huh, Sable. That's an interesting one.
Chloe Veronica - I actually love this! Good job, eight-year-old me.
Love Brynn - Ugh, this was probably the worst.
Mia Gessica - Not sure why I decided to spell Jessica with a G...
Lark Helena - This combo is rather striking, too.
Racheal Elaine - Racheal? I think I had a classmate who spelled her name that way.
Khristina Haley - Why the K?
Heaven Skylar - Well, at least it's better than Nevaeh, right?
Thomas Dominic - This was actually what my dad would have wanted to name a son if my parents ever had one. I'm not sure if I knew that at the time, though.
Zara Eleanor - Lovely!
Anastasia Juliet - Love this, too!
Ashleigh Regina - I must have really loved the name Regina back then. This is like the third time it has appeared on the list! (And, screw it, I still prefer Ashley spelled Ashleigh. I have no idea why.)
Madison Eve - Must have just seen Splash...
Daphne Chloe - Love both names separately, but together...ugh! What was I thinking?
Phoebe Olympia - Oo, that's a nice one.
Lydia Penelope - Pretty!
Does anybody else remember their dolls' names?Proud mother to William "Liam" Balthazar, and expecting #2 in September 2014!

I had a Playmobil doll named Annabelle.
I also had a Polly named Peggy, a Polly named Portia (which I actually thought was a gibberish name at the time) who had gotten her lower body torn off and was supposed to be a robot (?), and a teddy cat named Helen, who resided amongst Sparkle, Cupcake, and Fuzzball. No idea how I came up with Helen. Oh, and a Webkinz named Dumpling Wong.
I also have Sims named Ezekiel and Evangeline, and they have kids named Justice, Ashley, Tiger, Celestia, and Fredrick. If that counts.moved to strider

I didn't have dolls, but I had lots of teddies, too many for them all to have names. I got rid of most of them in secondary school, but these are the ones I still own for sentimental reasons.
Digby - Grey cartoonish dog with a lolling red tongue who is older than me - I inherited him after my cousin outgrew him. He probably reaches up to my waist when standing up (I'm 5'2), so he's quite big!
Cadbury - Dark brown moose with hollow arms so you can play with him like a puppet. He did have a wife moose and a reindeer baby at one time, but I got rid of them during my big clean out.
Big Ted - a big fluffy white teddy bear who is probably my favourite, he's great to cuddle when you're feeling sad.
Santa - a friend of the family knitted me a Santa toy for my first Christmas.
Red Ted - he was my first teddy, I bit his nose off, lol!
Those are the ones I've had since childhood and will hold onto. I remember we used to have "bring your teddy to school" days and my teacher once brought in her 40 year old teddy bear that she had kept from childhood, and I thought that was really sweet.

Wow, that is a LOT of dolls! lol. I don't know that I ever had more than 5 dolls my whole life. I remember that I had two American girl dolls (Samantha and Molly, and I didn't change their names), and my parents got me a doll when my sister was born (I think they thought I'd get super jealous, like I did when my brother was born two years before that, haha. I was really excited about my sister coming, though, and I named her Rebecca, after my sister. ), and I remember having this favorite, beautiful baby doll, and I don't know that I ever named her (I was around 4-7?), but she was by far the most perfect baby ever. I remember taking her everywhere, and then I lost her, and no matter how much we looked and rearranged, we never found her. I don't think I ever took her out of the house, though, so she's probably still here somewhere, haha. And I think I had a Bitty Baby when I was really quite young, but I don't think I named her, either. I didn't name most of my stuff, haha! I don't think my parents ever encouraged it, and so I just called all my dolls "my doll/my dolly", haha. I definitely will help all my daughters come up with names for their baby dolls!
ETA: I forgot boys' names! I really love Thomas Dominic, as well! So dashingly handsome.
