    Build a Family based on the "Names Searched Right Now" bar

    I have been playing this for a while now and thought it might be fun to start a thread and see what others come up with!
    The goal is to name a family based on the names in the names searched right now bar at the top of nameberry pages.
    Here is how it works:

    You must use the names in the order that they appear.

    You cannot repeat the beginning letters of names or the ending sounds of names (ex. if you have Andrew you cannot add Aria and if you have Merida you cannot add Pippa)

    So that the games does not go on forever, all children are born within a 20-yr window with each names representing one year.

    I always allow myself to veto names that I cannot pronounce or would never consider using.

    In case this is confusing here is an example:
    The following are the 20 names that just appeared on the "names searched right now" bar:
    Remy (this would be the first child)
    Holden (Second child)
    Addison (Can't use b/c has same ending as Holden)
    Bellamy (Same ending as Remy)
    Anais (I can never pronounce this one, haha)
    Hudson (Same letter/same ending)
    Rachel (Same letter)
    Ford (Third child)
    Hazel (Same letter)
    George (Fourth child)
    Rafe (Same letter)
    Johanna (Fifth child)
    Kiana (Same ending)
    Nadia (Same ending)
    Marley (Same ending)
    Magnus (Sixth child)
    Orlando (Seventh child)
    Tillman (Same ending)
    Vaughn (Same ending)
    Nyx (I wouldn't use this one)

    So, my family would be:
    Remy - (year) 0
    Holden - 1
    Ford - 7
    George - 9
    Johanna - 11
    Magnus - 15
    Orlando - 16

    Sometimes I also like figuring out how old they would all be at certain times. For example -- when Remy is 30, Holden (29), Ford (23), George (21), Johanna (19), Magnus (15), & Orlando (14).

    Of course, when you play this, there is no need to type out all twenty names, just tell us the family you ended up with. I do first names only since the bar changes so fast, but if you want to add middle names, feel free to do so! How many children did you have? Do you like the way the names go together? Play as many times as you like!

    Let me know if this is confusing and I'll try to explain it better. Enjoy!
    Not expecting, just planning and building lists!
