I really dislike nicknames, so none of these would be shortened to anything. I tend to like names that feel more classical, i guess. and my boy names very masculine and my girl names very feminine. Wilder and Beckett are quite new to my list, I'm not 100% sure about them yet.
Also, if you have any suggestions of names i might like, i'm always up for it. I'm constantly adding and changing my lists. most of these have been on there for a while, though.
Okay, so as I was coming up with (and making fun of) a few examples of 'New Age' names in a comment in a recent post, I thought of a name I actually liked it.
So.. what do you all think of 'Prism'? Funnily, both 'Prism' and 'Matrix' make me think of rock.
*prepares to be laughed at*
my favorite is Frances Bean Cobain. i absolutely love it and wish it weren't courtney's kids name or else i'd steal it...although that would show how i'm just a whining gen-xer who misses kurt.
here are some others that i find "amusing"
Moxie Crimefighter (penn from penn & teller's kid)
Pilot Inspektor (jason lee's boy)
Trixie GoGo (the dude that won Hell's Kitchen season 1 named his daughter that although she passed away shortly after birth.)
I think it's rather unique and new age. Plus it sounds nice. I've heard names a lot stranger than Matrix!
What does everyone else think?
some of them are over the top, but some are pretty
a couple I'd only use for a D&D or story character :-)
Lucy Fern (For all the luciferian satanists out there lol)
Altaira Neruda (after the star and the poet)
Gemma Naomi/ Gemma Niobe
Coy -a beautiful kind of lucky huge gold fish frin china. also adjective.
Let's say you have to use these names and change the spelling. What would you change to make another acceptable spelling or at least one that won't be terrible? Small sound changes are okay, as if you'd pronounce Kaila and Kayla differently, but something like Lizzy can't change consonants to become Lilly or something. Some, in my opinion, are more difficult than others, and some might be really hard to work with! I'm not saying I like/dislike any of these names in particular, they are just ones I thought might be interesting. Feel free to also post opinions on the changes. For instance, Carter was really hard for me to change and not hate it. I'll post my answers in a comment so my answers don't influence yours.
So, here we go:
and one last one because I know so many people can't stand it even spelled correctly:
