    Re: The Jill Fan Club

    1. -Her lists are always tailored to the style of the poster, not just the same list of her own favorites over and over.
    -She takes the time to actually create these individualized lists.
    -Her list of suggestions sometimes include my own daughter's name (Laura), thereby making it more hip!


    2. Lillian

    3. Laura - see #1 above :)

    4. Los Angeles

    5. Pinkberry frozen yogurt

    Re: The Jill Fan Club

    1. say three lovely things about her
    -Jill is very calm when people panic over a name or names at the last minute
    -She responds to each person to their individual question- with many, many suggestions and never pushy about what she likes, only suggests what sounds better
    -She has a very thorough knowledge of names and how they sound, whether they go or are too matchy with other names, and how they will be perceived and how popular they might be

    2. post your favorite name that sounds like Jill (has to start with a "J", be a form of Julia - male or female, or it could rhyme with Jill.)
    Sylvia? Julia, Phillip. LOTS.

    3. post your favorite name she ever thinks of.
    -Genevieve

    4. guess what city she lives in.
    -Chicago

    5. guess what her favorite dessert is.
    -Brownies with no nuts in them.

    Oh, thank you so much, Susan and every single one of you! I wish you could see me now, sitting here with a huge smile and happy tears running down my face. :-) This means the world to me! I don't even know what to say, but I'm just so glad I've "met" all of you here and wish I could give you a big hug! :-)


    1. (I'll skip this one, but I'm going to print out your replies and read them whenever I'm having a bad day!) :-)
    2. Julia

    3. I love so many of the names you all suggest on here, and I loved reading your replies!

    4. I'd tell you where I am, but I have a blog for Nameberry coming out next week (thanks for that opportunity, Pam!), and am afraid to reveal where I am at the moment. I'm moving to Boston soon, though (yeah, I revealed that, but who cares?), and you're all invited over for dinner with your beautiful babies, okay? :-)

    I can't recall who mentioned my babies, but I haven't had my children yet, and hope you'll all still be here when it's that time of my life, which I'm hoping will be relatively soon! :-)

    5. I will eat anything sweet if it's not bolted down :-), but my favorites include ice cream (it must have chocolate sprinkles), warm chocolate chip cookies (I found the best recipe recently), chocolate mousse, pie...I love it all! :-)

    6. I'm going to come back and say nice things about you all, too! :-)

    Thanks infinity for this! :-)

    Re: The Jill Fan Club

    I've gotten to know some of you better than others, but I'm going to give this my best shot! :-) As a given, each of you is bright, kind, sensitive, warm, and extremely thoughtful. :-)

    Susan: Susan is seriously creative and witty, and writes such vivid, imaginative descriptions of everything! I love how open and honest she is, too, and how she's always open to new things. Susan is adventurous! :-) Reading Susan's posts on nameberry in the site's early days made me want to join!

    Jane: Jane is elegantly confident and assertive, and I think it's beyond awesome and admirable! (I also love her humor, too!) Although she waffled a bit about naming her twins at first, she knew what she liked, and wasn't going to let the haters get her down. (I've seen that phrase, "Don't let the haters get you down," on a lot of message boards, and have always wanted to use it. Thanks, Jane, for helping me fulfill a dream.) I hope her twins, Phineas and Barnaby, are doing well! :-)

    ErinLouise: I haven't posted a lot with Erin Louise (I hope that changes!), but from what I know so far, I love her name combo, and really appreciate her upbeat personality and the positivity she spreads on Nameberry. When I read her posts, I picture her beautiful accent, which makes everything sound nicer. I always smile when I see a post from ErinLouise. :-)

    Kristen: Kristen seriously has a selfless heart of gold, and I cried when I read that she wanted to name her baby girl Blake, after her husband's brother who passed away. The sentiment was more important to her than sticking with a first name closer to her usual style, and I think that's amazing and special. Not everyone would do that. She's also gracious!

    Zard: I love how Zard asks for constructive criticism and then responds with such class, kindness, and dignity. She seems so "together" (if that makes sense), and is like an oasis of calm and politeness. I really love her lists, too, and hope her baby, Emery, is doing well!

    Rica: Rica is really creative, and has been coming up with awesome lists! She's open and honest, and isn't afraid to say what she thinks, which is great! I started to love the name Isla because of Rica, and will always associate her with the name. Rica is a sweetheart.

    Mom1: Mom and I have only posted together briefly, but I think she is a total sweetheart. I thought it was so sweet and caring how didn't want her second baby girl's name to take away from her daughter Caitlin's name (you know, being too frilly or exotic in comparison). Not everyone thinks like that, but Mom does! She also doesn't bite your head off if you don't like something she does, and that's always a plus. :-)

    Jillian: I haven't posted much with Jillian, but I love her perky personality and thoughtful posts. Jillian stikes me as very warm and considerate, and I hope to see her write more wondeful posts on nameberry! (I always pretended that my name was Jillian when I was little!) :-)

    ErinPurple: Erin is a kind, thoughtful mommy-to-be, and I truly appreciate her honesty and excitement. I love how she doesn't go all postal if someone doesn't like one of her names, and she never shies away from putting herself out there. (She gives great suggestions, too!)

    Sarah: I think Sarah is pretty new here, but from the posts I've read, she's really funny and tells things like they are. She gives great suggestions, too, and I get a kick out of a lot of the witty things she says. (And for the record, I love the name Laura, and would use it in a heartbeat if it wasn't my cousin's name.) :-)

    Karen: I love reading Karen's thoughtful, well-written, well-reasoned posts. Karen strikes me as a very thoughtful, helpful person, and I love how she always goes the extra mile to inform people about the names they love. She really seems to care. Karen calls it like it is, and isn't afraid to do so.

    Each of you is very special! :-)

    Re: The Jill Fan Club

    Jill, what you said about me is really kind. I'm going to write it down on a piece of paper and keep it in my special drawer!
    I love what you said about all the posters. This is a great record of the posters at Nameberry. It is hard for me to keep track of them all and what their babies names are. I can look at this list often to help me remember who everyone is. It would be cool if all the posters could copy what you said about them and add some more. I am so visual that it would really help me if I had pictures of everyone or at least they could say what color hair they have and the color of their eyes.
