I'm new. I know there's a giant wave of people joining but I just had to. I have been making lists of baby names since I was about eight years old. I've always loved names. I used to write a lot of fiction and I would always give them the strangest names (Oleander anyone?) I've since grown a bit.. and my friend had a baby. So now I'm thinking about babies. I want three. Plently of naming opportunities.
My list is underneath the jump. Mind you, I do realise that some of these names would get a lot of hate from a child, so it's just a list of names that I enjoy. I also come from a family with some not-so-common-names-at-the-time names, Savannah (me - 1987), Ian (my little brother - 1988), and Gwendolyn (my older half sister - 1977) so the stranger, the more comforting almost.( Girls )
I've been leaning very heavily towards Madeleine Ava Leigh. I am one of those people who is intrigued by letter combinations. 'Ei' is fun for my eyes. 'Gh' as well. I also like first and middle names to have a different ending sound. This is because my parents thought it would be fantastic to name me Savannah Anna.
I also like Madeleine Greer. I have no idea why I am so into Greer. It feels solid.
If I happen to have a second child, I was thinking of Audrey, preferred pronounciation 'aud-ree' instead of 'au-dree', but I can never come up with a nice middle name or two for that one. I also am very much in love with Cadence, Cambria, Imogen, Iris, Marina, Regan, and Ruby. I am one of those horrible girls who wants a child with a name they grow into.( Boys )
As you can see, I suffer from lack of interest in boy names, which is unfortunate due to the fact that I sort of want two boys and a girl. I would be happy with any combination, but that's the one that just fits in my head. I'm very partial to Gabriel, James, and West.
Thoughts? Feelings? Concerns? Tell me why Magnolia is a horrible choice. I know it is. But it just looks so pretty
