Pepper and Basil and Harper and Paisley, so why the heck not?
My personal style is magickal, evocative, and enchanting, names associated with favorite characters from books and theatre, mythology and legend, names with astronomical and astrological connections, ethereal, mysterious and bohemian. Of course then we have my ultra-practical hubby. So my GP list is where I go all evanescent creativity, and my real life list reflects a very distinct formula that marries our two styles. For girls, we choose magical but familiar slightly vintage firsts with nature/word middles. For boys we like rugged Biblical names paired with nature, place, or word names, but the order isn't as strict. We do not like cross-gender names, and unisex names only work for us in the sense that we think most nature and word names aren't gender-specific. The end result is whimsical, yet grounded combos. And while I hate to be reined in, I can recognize that our future daughter would probably prefer Alice Willow over Narnia Kismet Illyria Faerydae. >_>Zion Nathaniel ~ Solomon Fable ~ Balthazar Wolf ~ Malachi Sparrow nn Kai ~ Tobias Rowan ~ Caspian _____

Honestly? Hipster. While I would consider my subculture to be nerd, not hipster, I can't deny that my names are thoroughly of that 20-something tattooed spiky-haired bike-riding bespectacled New York demographic to which I do, admittedly, belong. I mean, Juniper? Eloise? Matilda? Roscoe? Hipster for sure.
That said, the trait which characterizes true hipsterdom is irony, and when it comes to names, I am totally in earnest. There is nothing arch or satirical about my taste. I have good reasons for loving the names I do, and I'll be proud to bestow them on my future children.Simon, Eloise/Louise, Faye, Judah, Thea, Felix, Iris, Cordelia, Roscoe, Lydia, Jasper, Phaedra, Adrian, Lucinda, Jane, Conrad, Wallace, Finnegan, Sylvie, Charlie, Dashiell, Juniper, Atlas, Matilda, Julian, Alice, Marlowe, Octavia, Jack, Marigold, Archer, Gabriel, Persephone, Raphael, Dov
