    Talking Boys names based on the following personality traits...

    Hey! Without using imagery to describe the child’s physical appearance I was interested to know what names come to mind with each child based on personality traits alone. Do you have different styles per personality profile or are names from the same style just different?

    Child 1-Active, Agreeable, Animated, Amusing, Bouncy, Bubbly, busy, Charismatic, Cheerful, Cute (acts cute), Energetic, Engaging, Friendly, Frolicking, Fun-loving, Funny, Happy, Light-hearted, Likes to be the centre of attention, Little actor, Little ray of sunshine, Never sits still, Outgoing, Positive, Random, Smiley, Social, Smiles at everyone, Talkative.

    Child 2-Agreeable, Calm, Careful, Cautious, Comforting, Concerned, Cuddly, Detailed, Easy going, Feels for others, Gentle, Graceful, Kind, Loving, Low-key, Pleasant, Pleasing, Quiet, Relaxed, Reserved, Sensitive, Soothing, Subdued, Sweet, Tender-hearted, Thoughtful.

    Child 3-Adventurous, Assertive, Busy, Competitive, Determined, Down to Earth, Energetic, Enterprising, Entrepreneurial, Feisty, Independent, Industrious, Into everything, Loud, Outgoing, Passionate, Persistent, Practical, Quick, Rambunctious, Resourceful, Restless, Risk-taker, Rowdy, Strong-willed, Swift, Take charge.

    Child 4-Articulate, Bold, Clear, Concise, Deeply loyal, Dignified, Efficient, Exact, Focused, Honourable, Literal, Logical, Mature, Precise, Poised, Polite, Proper, Reflective, Reserved, Responsible, Serious, Still, Structured, Thorough, Well-mannered, Well behaved.

    Thank you!

    I love this question, Ella!

    To me, most if not all names have distinct personality.

    I've used girls' names in my examples, because it's easier !


    Child one has a sanguine temperament type. Best: Energetic, upbeat names like Felicity {&} lighthearted, playful names like Piper.

    Child two has a phlegmatic temperament type. Best: Discreet, ladylike names like Grace {&} elaborate, feminine names like Priscilla.

    Child three has a choleric temperament type. Best: Plain, sensible names like Anne {&} athletic, boyish names like Rory.

    Child four has a melancholic temperament type. Best: Rich, regal names like Isadora {&} dark, dramatic names like Persephone.

    Hey WOW Apollonia! That is so interesting-I got the idea from a book called the child whisperer. I find it really intriguing. In the book it is classified at Type 1, Type 2, Type 3, Type 4. And I guess I started getting imagery in my own head with names...(Being name obsessed). But yes they are soooo similar it is crazy.
    My picks for girls...I will add boys if anyone else decided to join me!
    Child one-I also thought of Felicity! (Spunky names came to mind-or like Lola)
    Child two-Fern (Nature names came to mind)
    Child three-Hadley (Unisex names)
    Child four-Imogen (I would agree with you regal names or vintage names).
    Funnily enough my daugher's name I think could fit in to 1 or 4 as it is spunky but also vintage. Cheerful but calm...

    Studying Hippocrates' four temperaments is fascinating, Ella!

    I've not yet read "The Child Whisperer," but I daresay personality inventories everywhere correspond, no matter how the four categories of temperament types are labeled.

    Phoebe is a great name.

    To me, she's child one -- a sanguine temperament type .
