    Names You Suddenly Love?

    The more I get into nameberry, the more I open to new names. Or rather, not new names so much as old names I used to loathe.

    My Top Ten Names I Used to Hate and Suddenly Now Love:

    1) Doris
    2) Winifred
    3) Hortense
    4) Enid
    5) Henrietta
    6) Barbara
    7) Carolyn
    8) Sue
    9) Portia
    10) Gwendolen

    I notice I am trending toward the clunky and the dated.

    I also notice that the names I used to love (female names) are often seeming too overdone, too frilly. Nothing like a nice hard name like Enid to brace you!

    What about you?

    As my favorite bumper sticker says, "If you can't change your mind, are you sure you still have one?"
