    What do you think of these names?

    I'm just looking for some general feedback on the names in my signature. I like names that evoke powerful imagery and/or have special personal meaning, a lot of literary names, and lots of Irish, French, and Greek names. I know my taste is a little 'much' for some people, but I've always been drawn to very unique names.

    I'd also like to know what you would suggest for nicknames for any of these names. The only one I can think of already that I like is Enj for Enjolras, it sounds like ange which is French for angel. But I know some of you are more creative at finding nicknames than I am, so I'd love it if you would suggest some!

    Wow! My favourite combos are: Edwina Judith Nightingale, Sansa Loveday Winifred, Evelyn Hugo Meriadoc and Oswald Iver Campion.

    My favourite individual names are: Saoirse, Theodosia, Rose, Roisin, Nightingale, Sansa, Winifred
    Heathcliff, Griffin, Meriadoc, Hadrian, Peregrin, Iver

    I think some of the names are a little OTT - namely Snow White, Enjolras, Snapdragon, but hey if you love them, go for it!

    Saoirse nn Shae?
    Cecilia nn Cece?
    Yvaine nn Yve (prn. like Eve)?
    Antigone nn Annie or Tiggy?
    Edwina nn Teddy or Winnie?
    Isabeau nn Beau?
    Bernadette nn Birdie?

    Evelyn nn Lyn?
    Horace nn Ace?
    Paris nn Parry (like Perry)?
    Oswald nn Ozzie or Waldo?

    Wow, these are remarkable names! See my signature! Not loving many, but use them anyway.

    Saoirse Foxglove Eponine - Foxglove is unusual, this combo seems natural on it's own (Saoirse and Eponine give this image too)
    Cecilia Muirenn Eidelweiss - nice, although I prefer Cecily to Cecilia
    Yvaine Theodosia Snowdrop - star-like! Not hot on Theodosia, thou
    Aphrodite Gwenllian Rose - badass! Maybe too badass, but OK
    Greer Belinda Roisin - bit masculine, but OK
    Antigone Snow White Fantine - too much... Maybe Antigone Novella Fantine? Antigone Amoret Fantine? Antigone Hedwig Fantine?
    Edwina Judith Nightingale - just too old-lady like
    Isabeau Noor Poinsettia - remindes me of medieval French court! Awesome!
    Sansa Loveday Winifred - Name Sansa should have!
    Bernadette Sybil Françoise - OK, stands out - by being bland

    Jude Perrin Heathcliff - Like some American, 19-century, gentlemen, OK
    Enjolras Griffin Alexandre - too spanish or brazilian
    Evelyn Hugo Meriadoc - Evelyn is girl! It used to be a boy, now he will get teased! Maybe Horace Hugo Meriadoc, or Lucius Hugo Meriadoc, or Grove Hugo Meriadoc. Love Meriadoc!
    Horace Coinneach Aslan - nice, but not my favorite
    Silas Hadrian Ismaël - OK
    Erwann Draco Renly - lovely! Especially Renly.
    Rowan Flick Diarmuid - nice one, too
    Paris Waldo Ludovic - Bit quirky and medieval! Nice.
    Cecil Peregrin Snapdragon - Gentleman in fantasy set in 17 century England! Awesome!
    Oswald Iver Campion - like Oswald! Nice combo.

    I like the name Antigone, I was her in the play. And I suggested it to my pregnant sister. My nieces MN is now Antigone and literally one person knew the correct pronunciation. Out of hundreds. She's also very embarrassed by it. She is 11 this year and wants to change it when she is 18. It's one of those "sounds better than it looks names" and no one knows how to pronounce it so it is just a hassle. Just a warning.

    I'll be honest I'm not a fan of some of the names mainly because I see it as a hassle for the child and constantly correcting people on how to say it. If it were me, I'd pick one of your more recognizable names as firsts and something a little more fun and quirky for the middle. Also I work at a shelter and Game Of Thrones names, Harry Potter and Disney names are far too prevalent for me to suggest Snow White, Draco or Sansa. Although some like Renly you can get away with. But most are super common among pet names.

    Here are some fave combos:

    Rose Eponine
    Winifred Eponine (nn Fred or Winnie)
    Judith Isabeau
    Sybil Yvaine
    Bernadette Fantine
    Cecilia Noor
    Rose Françoise
    Muireen Eidelweiss
    Bernadette Eidelweiss
    Winifred Theodosia

    Ismaël Hadrian
    Renly Alexandre
    Silas Campion
    Alexandre Aslan (Aslan is a great character to name a child after btw)
    Griffin Campion
    Jude Campion (I would pair Jude with a very masculine name due to is unisex/feminine qualities)
    Hugo Ismaël (I naturally pronounce Hugo as oo-go some say Hue-go, not sure what you're going for)
    Rowan Hadrian
    Iver Meriadoc

    Please don't name your boy Evelyn. It's a beautiful name but I can't imagine a boy having to go through that sort of teasing.
    Current Favorites:

    Girls: Ruby, June,Penelope, Pepper, Matilda, Chloe, Arya, Aurelia, Cricket, Myfawnwy

    Boys: Jack, Phillip, Patrick, Sebastian, Bennett, Copper

    If I had a child tomorrow I'd name it:
    Ruby June or Sebastian Patrick
