An earlier post got me thinking of names I like from books. I know everyone has "literary" names they like, but lets not forget plain old books that haven't changed the face of literature:)

Off the top of my head -


are all names I like that I originally found in books.

What about you?

There's a girl on my dorm floor named Monelle... I'm not sure how I feel about it.

I got a little bored, so it's game time. I've never made a 'name game' before, so I hope this is a good one.

Thought Id give you all a hello, this group seems really fun and interesting. I have been planning and planning and planning on joining this for weeks. My friend got me into it and is here too! [Hi Manda! :D] and just now finally got here, forgive me.

As for my liking in names, I have several. I always look to names for my stories. I write alot, so names are always handy and one thing I am very very anal on when it comes to the perfect name for people.  I also love names just to think of my future kids names, in which I have come across in my mind and changed a half dozen times too.  Anyways..

I wanted to know what you all think of names that are that of virtues. As for the Dever Girls, whom I think are adorable more than anything. They each have a name unique to one, but I think many of you will find them as bad as useing many Y's in one name. If you havent heard of the girls, I shall see what you think. 

There's Grace Elizabeth, whom you may have seen on CSI: New York on Halloween, the episode was called "Boo" and has been in many modeling projects, and on my layout. Then, the twins: Hope Eva and Faith Esibella whom have both shared the part of Molly on General Hospital, and also been known as the babies on Desperate Housewives and Ghost Whisperer and many other things, and also seen on my banner. And now they have the newest addition, Joy Emma whom may starring in her first movie soon at almost a month old! All are in my icon, haha. I guess if their mom was going to have a boy, [I have talked to her a few times] his name was to be Caden. What do you think? What boy names are out there as for virtues?

I can already hear all the comments, but I figured Id see what you all take of all the E's and the whole virtue sense to names.

Now, to my own question.. Their are many names that end in IN for boys, but what girl names are out there that actually would look okay and not so odd with the IN ending. Ive been trying so hard to figure one for a special reason. Hopefully you can help me..

Thanks for listening to my babble and hope to get to meet you all, I KNOW I will enjoy this place. Cant wait to get more into everything.

My husband and I have been looking over baby names for awhile, and we've got our choices pretty much narrowed down but I'm having a hard time getting the name Lulu out of my head, even though it's not one of our choices.

I LOVE the nickname Lulu, but I just can't see it as a stand-alone name, so I'm trying to come up with a name that can use Lulu as a nickname.

My favorite is Tallulah, but my husband can't stand it, so I was wondering if you guys had any other suggestions for us?

Anders Joseph Dealy (prncd. Daily) for one twin and I'm liking Nico a lot lately. Thoughts? Any sort of middle name that goes well with it?

Recent finding: a 19-year old girl named Mikye, pronounced Mik-eye-ah or Muh-ky-ah, but she prefers the first one.
She says it might also be spelled Micaiah and it's a variation of Michelle.
I'm not sure if she has a dutch background of some sort.


I think it's interesting, but it kinda looks like someone typed Mikey wrong.

I am due in 2 weeks and this is the only name my hubby and I can agree on.  He will be Harvey Aaron.  My husband really likes it but I'm not too sure.  What do you think?

I realised that I haven't posted my favourite names here in a while, so I thought I'd post them now, and let you all comment on them. Chances are I won't be having kids for a while, so if you really hate any of the names, don't worry, it's not an emergency. :D

1. Nathaniel
2. Colin
3. Edward
4. Evander
5. Joseph - but I'd probably use this one as a middle name. I think it goes well with the four names listed above.

1. Jane
2. Margaret (Meg)
3. Camilla
4. Irene
5. Theodora
6. Rosalie
7. Norah

What do you think? If you want to suggest any other names, go for it, because I have trouble coming up with boys' names especially.

A family at our church had a little boy:
Kaemon Moore

I hate it. But, his big sister is Brooklyn Ellie, which I also hate. So bleh. Moore may be mom's maiden name, and if that's the case I don't mind it...but he has healthy and so is mama and that is what matters.

So, I read Five Little Peppers and How They Grew yesterday, and was highly amused by the children's names. Most of them were fairly normal for the time period the story is set in, but some I'd imagine were less usual even then.

The Peppers:
Ebenezer (Ben or Bensie)
Mary (Polly)
Joel (Joey)
David (Davey)
Sophronia (Phronsie)

Their friends:
Jasper (Jappy)
Van (Vannie)
Dick (Dickie)

I'm not sure how they got Polly out of Mary, except that Mary was also their mother's name, and thus they'd want a different nickname for the daughter. I rather liked Ben for Ebenezer, though I'd never use it. I like Jasper, but Jappy is awful (and even the Peppers seemed to think so in the story), and Sophronia and even Phronsie are such mouthfuls.

I'm having a hard time choosing between my top two favourite boys names so I thought I'd get some opinions from you guys.

Do you prefer Anthony or Kieran? And if I used both, does Anthony Kieran or Kieran Anthony flow better?

What does everyone think of this name? I think it's cute, but I can't really see it on anyone much older than ten!
(And would it be weird if the child, named Ruby, had red hair?)

Well, I see plenty of posts that aren't about baby names per se. So, help me name my company? I've sold my jewelry to friends and through stores I've worked at for years, but I'm branching out and I really need a good company name.

For reference: I primarily make jewelry, but am branching out into selling other crafts, such as knitting and crochet projects, as well. I work mostly in precious metal and semi-precious stone. Many of my pieces are delicate and detailed, but I occasionally do a funky less delicate piece. Lately I've been making gravitating towards designing pieces suitable for wedding jewelry. I'm aiming for something kind of whimsical yet earthy, somewhat sophisticated.

What names could have Cato as a nn? The character is female, but I am gender flexible on a LOT of names so all suggestions are welcome.

Here's me jumping on the namelist bandwagon.

My list is very long but there aren't a lot of combos. I'd love some feedback on the names themselves and any combos you guys can make from the names I have, or other names you think I'd might like.

VOTE on my Name List

Thanks so much :)

So I recently made a post about name suggestions. And my boyfriend and I decided tonight that his name will be Brent James Adams. More than likely will be Brenton James Adams on his birth certificate, but we'll call him Brent. What do you think? Of course we might change our mind along the way or once he's actually here.
