Well, I haven't posted in a while...but I've been thinking a lot about names lately!
I don't think I can pick just one! Recently, I've been loving:
Sebastian-It's well known, easy to pronounce, but not common where I am. I've loved this name for years!
James-This one has been growing on me lately! Nn Jamie
Benjamin-This is just a wonderful classic. I can imagine it on a young boy and a grown man and it just gives me a warm feeling!
Girls: Adelaide, Eloise, Fiona, Margaux, Nora, Julia, Molly
Boys: Benjamin, Levi, Miles/Milo, Sebastian, Theo/Theodore, James, Remi/Remy

I'll just leave my top ten:
As you can clearly see, I'm into nature-inspired names for boys. My dad is with the DNR and I grew up in a state park. Chetan (rhymes with Peytan) is the Lakota word for hawk and has been my number one boys' for a long while now. (Paul is my dad's name and would be the middle.) Steel and Dalamar are characters in one of my favorite series - AWESOME strong characters that I fell in love with in high school and then just grew to love the names on their own.
I love all of these because they're memorable, distinctive, easy to spell, and you don't hear them over and over and over again. Well, I should say you don't hear them a ton now; that might not be the case when I get around to using them, but still. These are the ones I just keep coming back to. With boys, I feel like you just hear the same twenty names used over and over again, and after a while they start to sound like generic brands. As in, "Oh look, another fill-in-the-blank." Aidan, Brandon, Matthew, Jacob. (Mind, I'm not bashing those names or anyone who loves them. I just feel like they're overused.)Future daughters: Kimimela Serene; Daenerys Jasmine; Azalea Dawn; Primavera Rose; Arwen Elizabeth
Future sons: Chetan Paul; Chaske; Aspen; Steel; Arrow; Lynx; River
Former Loves: Tristan; Conor; Heath; Sage; Rhiannon; Rayne
Rising Crushes: Adair Skye; Winter; Elowen; Esmerée; Isabeau; Livia
No kids now or in the near future; gotta finish grad school first. I'm just a name nerd who can't wait to use my faves.
