Minerva

I would never use it because I like how it’s pronounced in spanish but very few would actually say it that way. I also hate the whole “you’re getting on my last minerva,” joke.

Anything super French and girly: Cosette, Delphine… I want my girls, if I have them, to have strong unisex names, but oh MY I love those delectable French names.

Kendall for a girl. I love the name, and yet, for some reason, it sounds like a stripper name to me. I wish it didn’t, because it’s a lovely name. But yeah, go figure.

@SunflowerGarden:  I love the name Aoibheann. Pronounced EE-van. Irish. Means ‘beautiful sheen’

but as someone who had the name Brynne (brin) mispronounced her whole life, I could never do that to my future kid.

I love the name Henrietta… but I don’t think I’d have the guts to use it.

 

Also… admit it… ‘Chlamydia’ SOUNDS pretty. too bad it would be a crime against humanity to name a child that.

@SunflowerGarden:  A friend of mine just called her daughter Odette, it was her grandmothers name.

I love the older ladies names are well, like Evelyn and Elanor, both are making a comeback now..

@Azure – haha, chlamydia. A sad but true statement!

My guilty pleasure name is Kenly…it happens to be a truck stop in North Carolina.

@azure:  Holy moly, my college friends and I used to joke that “Chlamydia” and “Chlamydio” would be great names for twins!

I want kids named Sunshine, Starlight, Moonbeam, and Rainbow!

 

 

 

Of course DH would never allow that!  We’re trying to get preggers – hoping for a boy – and we’ve been capital O obsessing over Easton.  To the point where we talk about “it’s time to conceive Easton” or “I want X baby object for Easton”.

 

 

 

i also love tree and flower names – Cedar, Aster, Hawthorn, etc.  I do some creative writing, and I collect names for characters.

Siobahn, Ivo (exept everyone would think it sounds like “evil”), Saffron (sounds kind of…bad girl), Kelly (too old-school).
