Clemence
Clement(ine)
Constance
Comfort
Faith
Felicity
Fortune
Grace

Hope
Joy
Liberty
Mercy
Precious

Estella Belle?

I'm not very fond of Belle, but because it flows with Estella, it's being considered as a possible MN. Any alternatives to Belle that manages to flow well the FN?

Poll!

As I was looking over the passenger list for the Mayflower for the virtue name post, I thought, "Why not post all of the names as a poll?" Some of them are pretty traditional, others are out there! Which do you like best?


[Poll #951956]

This is the last poll, I promise. I just learned how to make them and I am so enamoured with it I thought I'd post another. My favorite author is Lucy Maud Montgomery, who wrote the Anne of Green Gables books, and the Emily of New Moon books, and many more besides. I always admire the names she picks for her characters, so I thought I'd post a poll of those names.

What do you think of the name Maverick?

While doing errands the other day I saw a little boy with this name. What good nicknames are there besides Rick/Ricky. Would Richard go with as a MN?

I was in a drive through today and the lady at the windows name was Shalinda.

Odd. I don't like it at all.
