Re: Favorite Place Names
Jill, these are my favorites (the ones I comment on):
Rose-love this for a first name or as a nn for Rosemary.
Annabelle-I love this so much spelled Annabel. I tend to like less frilly.
Genevieve-I just love this.
Charlotte-loved this until Lola pointed out it has the word "harlot" inside it. Now I just like it.
Cora-I love this because it reminds me of coral. Love the color. Love beautiful things in the ocean. Plus coral is a soft, warm color in the desert.
Louisa-I love this so much, too and I love Lulu. I used to buy a soft drink in Mexico called "Little Lulu".
Grace-My aunt's name. She was really nice, so I might use this for a middle.
Blythe-I love this because there is a small town out in the California desert called Blythe.
Lydia-It's nice for other people's kids.
Catherine-I am in love with Catherine with a "C". reminds me of pearls and pink frosting.
Eliza-love because of Eliza Doolittle.
Julia-It's funny. I really love Julie, but not for a young girl. For someone my age.
Susannah-love it. Sounds like my name.
Celia-love it because of "The Importance of Being Earnest". Cecily is a girl in the play.
Maude-for someone else, it is lovely.
Edward-love because of Mr. Rochester in Jane Eyre
Henry-love because of the character in the Beverly Cleary books. She wrote "Ramona".
Oliver-I love Oliver.
Samuel-I love Samuel in the bible. He is one of my faves!
Charles-I love Charles, maybe because of Laura Ingalls' father.
Joseph-I love Joseph because of Jesus' father. He was open-minded and kind to women.
I live in Southern CA and have only been to the Boston area maybe three times. It is very exotic to a Californian.
