    Most of my favorites are traditional classics.

    I do like some more common modern names too

    Not sure what Declan would fall under.

    I actually think Parsley is a fabulous idea! We have Pepper and Basil and Harper and Paisley, so why the heck not?

    My personal style is magickal, evocative, and enchanting, names associated with favorite characters from books and theatre, mythology and legend, names with astronomical and astrological connections, ethereal, mysterious and bohemian. Of course then we have my ultra-practical hubby. So my GP list is where I go all evanescent creativity, and my real life list reflects a very distinct formula that marries our two styles. For girls, we choose magical but familiar slightly vintage firsts with nature/word middles. For boys we like rugged Biblical names paired with nature, place, or word names, but the order isn't as strict. We do not like cross-gender names, and unisex names only work for us in the sense that we think most nature and word names aren't gender-specific. The end result is whimsical, yet grounded combos. And while I hate to be reined in, I can recognize that our future daughter would probably prefer Alice Willow over Narnia Kismet Illyria Faerydae. >_>

    I like a variety of name styles, but my absolute favorites tend to be nature related and hippie-ish. Some of my favorites are Hazel, Willow, Lily, Rosalie, Coralie, Indigo, Emerald, Wren, and Luna for girls. For boys, I like Everett, Oakley, Hunter, Rowan, Kai, and Forest.

    I'd say my style is a giant clash. I love Benedict, but I also love Moses. I like Tobias and Levi. I love Charlotte, Esparanza, Mercy, and Acacia. I'm just one big mess of styles.

    Honestly? Hipster. While I would consider my subculture to be nerd, not hipster, I can't deny that my names are thoroughly of that 20-something tattooed spiky-haired bike-riding bespectacled New York demographic to which I do, admittedly, belong. I mean, Juniper? Eloise? Matilda? Roscoe? Hipster for sure.

    That said, the trait which characterizes true hipsterdom is irony, and when it comes to names, I am totally in earnest. There is nothing arch or satirical about my taste. I have good reasons for loving the names I do, and I'll be proud to bestow them on my future children.

    Just a grad student, dreaming ahead...
