    What's Your Shortlist?

    Whether you're ttc or not, married or not, old enough to even have a baby or not, I'm sure you have a shortlist. I do at least. Anyways, what's yours?

    Here's Mine:

    Girls:
    Phoebe (will be the first used)
    Eloise
    Ophelia
    Lavinia
    Evelyn
    Beatrice/Beatrix
    Matilda
    Cordelia
    Belle
    Penelope
    Emilia
    Juliana
    Aurora
    Elspeth

    Boys:
    Theodore (will be the first used)
    Oliver
    Arthur
    Sebastian
    Hugo
    Tobias
    Atticus
    Oscar
    Phineas
    Alfred
    Alexander

    I will probably not use Alexander or Juliana, but I love the names and felt bad leaving them off of the list.

    I always think I don't have a short list, but when it comes down to it, the list of names I'm likely to really use is a slim one. Most names don't work in Norway, sadly.
    For real babies, this is about it:
    Idunn
    Liva
    Tora
    Rosa
    Signe
    Mari
    Frøya
    Bjørk
    Eir
    Erla
    Vårin

    Iver
    Olai
    Bo
    Ravn
    Nor
    Vilje
    Trygg
    Falk
    Sølve
    Aksel
    Alvar

    I might go a different route, with more elaborate non-Nordic names:
    Lovisa
    Leonor
    Ofelia
    Everild
    Soleia
    Ellisiv
    Alvilde
    Margaret
    Olava
    Emerense

    Immanuel
    Lavrans
    Alvarin
    Ambros
    Johannes
    Eindride
    Valentin
    Edvin
    Ossian
    Ingmar
    Åshild | loves books & baked goods

    Dido Nuala Foxglove + Penthe Noria Delight + Una Hereswith Sybel
    Lórien Madrigal Melusine + Alaïs Antimony Blythe + Gwladus Rosa Rixende

    Cian Alabaster Lucien + Coren Iroko Nightingale + Sufjan Sirius Tamlane
    Remiel Kvothe Corundum + Annachie Casimir Lio + Elodin Emmanuel Sparrow


    &

    Lucia Felix + Marian Emrys + Freya Thorn + Sylvia Elmo + Cora Idris + Helena Heath
    Ivo Seren + Asher Alva + Silas Vega + Conrad Bronte + Florin Phaedra + Samuel Vesper

    A few more: Eleanor, Margot, Edith, Emma, Violet, Edgar, Elliott, Oscar & Theodore (Theo)
    Rose Lavinia Charlotte & Edmund Nicanor Hugo
    Ada Beatrice Margot ‧ Alice Cordelia Mary ‧ Clara Elisabeth Margot ‧ Flora Elisabeth Maude
    Jane Wilhelmina Edith ‧ Elliott Victor Jack "Ottie/Otter" ‧ Henry Frederick Arthur

    Arthur ‧ August ‧ Aurelia ‧ Charles ‧ Edgar ‧ Edith ‧ Eleanor ‧ Émile ‧ Emma ‧ Eulàlia ‧ Félix ‧ Floyd ‧ George ‧ Georgiana
    Henrietta ‧ Hugo ‧ Kit ‧ Laszlo ‧ Leonor ‧ Lydia ‧ Mabel Augusta ‧ Margot Lavinia ‧ Matilda ‧ Oscar ‧ Pip ‧ Rosalind ‧ Violet
