    Names You Like That Aren't Usable For You

    Not sure if this had been done before. But list names that you like but couldn't use got whatever reason

    Note: these only apply to use as first names, most I'd consider as middle names
    Flora- won't use because it's the name of a pet
    Lucy- also wont use because it's the name of a pet
    Any names I like that are top #20
    Ladies: Cordelia Guinevere (Del), Lavinia Charlotte (Vinnie), Desdemona Ophelia (Pip)

    Gentlemen: Leopold Rowan (Leo), Frederick Adrian (Fritz), Thedore Henry (Ted)

    Makayla - a spelling variant of my sister's name - S/O and I have both said that if my mom hadn't used this 18 years ago, this would be our #1 for a daughter!
    Shelby - SIL's name
    Jordyn(n) - S/O's ex
    Eleanor - My cousin is using this for his baby girl due in July
    Ashley - S/O and I both have cousins named this
    Kendra - see Ashley


    Wyatt - relative's name
    Liam - relative's name
    Lucas - relative's name
    Joshua - BIL
    Jackson - too close to BIL's name
    Ryan - a cousin has this name, as well as my dad, my FIL, and my uncle all being named Brian - it seems a bit much!
    Dylan - ex-boyfriend's name

    I also wouldn't use close relatives names as first names under most circumstances

    Ruby and Elodie are names I love that don't sound good with my surname OR my S/O's surname.

    Then there are the names we like that are taken by at least one family member:
    Sophie (wouldn't have sounded good anyway, but still)
    Suzanna 'Suzy'
    Emma
    Vivienne
    Thomas
    Daniel
    Samuel
    David (x4!!)
    John (S/O likes it, I do not, so quite thankful for the relatives!)
    William
    Benjamin
    Edward
    Peter
    Eliza Jane. Alice Mary. Mira Frances. Felicity Eleanor.
    Simon James. Alexander Hugo. Oscar Edward
    Orinthea. Crescent. Solstice. Astatine. Cavalier. Antimony. Prosper. Quest.

    Hufflepuff. PhD Student. Cat Lover.
