In a Rut -- Need Creative Minds!
I have said multiple times I have the hardest time with girl names... so I was hoping you all could all help me out?
I want to have a name that is unique but wouldn't be embarrassing to the child. I have plenty of guilty pleasures, but when I actually think...would I want my name first name to be Clementine? No...not personally. I like vintage but not too old-lady sounding (ex: June or Hazel is too on the mature side for me).
I like names that are bright and sunny. Names that conjure up a creative image and make people smile when you introduce the child. Not too frilly or harsh (nothing like Maxwell or Hunter for a girl.) I also like to steer clear of the top 100.
Here are some name ideas that I do enjoy, but don't feel I'll use :
Honor -- worry about the "on her" reference I see people point out on here, and I don't like Honora as an alt.
Maple -- could I do this? Just not sure if it's overly country...
Pepper -- but not digging a full name for it like Penelope or Persephone
Lorelai -- favorite but DH hates it
Ruby -- cute sound but becoming too common
Pharaby -- family name for us, but complicated to spell/sound out
I'm excited to hear any suggestions from you because the berries have the best ones of all! Thank you! xoxo
