    Re: Favorite Place Names

    Jill, these are my favorites (the ones I comment on):
    Rose-love this for a first name or as a nn for Rosemary.
    Annabelle-I love this so much spelled Annabel. I tend to like less frilly.
    Genevieve-I just love this.
    Josephine-so opulent.
    Charlotte-loved this until Lola pointed out it has the word "harlot" inside it. Now I just like it.
    Cora-I love this because it reminds me of coral. Love the color. Love beautiful things in the ocean. Plus coral is a soft, warm color in the desert.
    Louisa-I love this so much, too and I love Lulu. I used to buy a soft drink in Mexico called "Little Lulu".
    Grace-My aunt's name. She was really nice, so I might use this for a middle.
    Caroline-adore this.
    Blythe-I love this because there is a small town out in the California desert called Blythe.
    Lydia-It's nice for other people's kids.
    Catherine-I am in love with Catherine with a "C". reminds me of pearls and pink frosting.
    Eliza-love because of Eliza Doolittle.
    Julia-It's funny. I really love Julie, but not for a young girl. For someone my age.
    Susannah-love it. Sounds like my name.
    Celia-love it because of "The Importance of Being Earnest". Cecily is a girl in the play.
    Maude-for someone else, it is lovely.

    Edward-love because of Mr. Rochester in Jane Eyre
    Henry-love because of the character in the Beverly Cleary books. She wrote "Ramona".
    Oliver-I love Oliver.
    Samuel-I love Samuel in the bible. He is one of my faves!
    Charles-I love Charles, maybe because of Laura Ingalls' father.
    Joseph-I love Joseph because of Jesus' father. He was open-minded and kind to women.
    I live in Southern CA and have only been to the Boston area maybe three times. It is very exotic to a Californian.
