Polly put the kettle on and we’ll all have a nursery rhyme name!

I have long Margery! Only that spelling though; Marjorie I don’t care for.

I love Arabella and Elsie so much! I wish Elsie wasn’t so popular here! Also I’ve just remembered how creepy nursery rhymes can be O_O.

Sukie take it off again Sukie take it off again.
I like Polly, Sukie, Simon and Jill. And Lucy but that’s rather popular.

What a delightful blog. I like all the names, including Margery/Marjorie, but the best is…
Polly is my alter ego, the chirpy, plucky, lively girl whose energy I summon up when life seems flat, stale, and unprofitable to my adult self.
Polly cavorts with dogs and chickens. She climbs hills and builds tree houses. She reads piles of books and roller skates. Much more fun than my adult self.
It’s a hard world and sometimes being given a cheery, ebullient name with canine zest to it can help.

I love Simon but, too bad it’s gaining in popularity! And I’m surprised to see Solomon getting some attention. I wanted this moniker to stay under the radar ; )

I love a number of these names. Great vintage illustrations!
Hetty can also be a nickname for Esther, if you don’t care for Mehetabel, Henrietta, or Harriet.
If Elsie can overcome her bovine association, so can Bessie.
