    Smile What names do you feel are "preppy?"

    This is just out of curiousity, what names do you feel are rather preppy? To me, preppy and kre8tiv are in different veins, I am not particular on style just looking for some ideas Thanks Berries!

    I always thought preppy was 'school style'. I mean really posh schools. Often these children have names like Florence and Clementine paired with nicknames aka Flossie and Clemmie. Cecily nn Cessie etc. I don't know though really. I just think of ties and glasses when you say preppy.

    In this country, 'preppy' names are ones that are stereotypically associated with people at prep schools, like Whirligig said, really posh schools. Names like Harriet nn Hattie, Millicent, Francesca, Tarquin, Rupert, Rufus, Archibald, Humphrey, Hugo etc. I also agree with Whirligig about names like Clementine nn Clemmie.
    I don't know what would be considered preppy in the US but I just googled it and I think maybe different names are considered preppy there?
