  1. [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f], [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m], & [name_f]Morgan[/name_f]
  2. Probably E. [name_f]My[/name_f] all-time favorite is [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f], and I also love [name_f]Emma[/name_f], [name_f]Esme[/name_f], [name_m]Ethan[/name_m], [name_m]Everett[/name_m], Eleanor…
  3. I’m not sure. But I’ve always thought I’d make a good [name_f]Emily[/name_f].
  4. I don’t really like that many but [name_f]Harper[/name_f] is nice.
  5. Timeless
  6. [name_f]Delilah[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] & [name_m]Ethan[/name_m] [name_m]Daniel[/name_m]
  7. [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] or [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]
  8. [name_f]Flora[/name_f] (basic, I know) and [name_f]Lillian[/name_f]
  9. [name_m]Leon[/name_m] & [name_f]Kitty[/name_f] (I’m a big Catherine/Katherine fan)
  10. Definitely [name_f]Esme[/name_f]. She’s ranked 325 but I feel like she should be more popular.
  11. [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] [name_m]Carmine[/name_m] [name_m]Richie[/name_m], it’s just so sweet and classic and spunky!
  12. I would say the majority of my boys’ names lean consonants and my girls’ names lean vowels, but not by that much.
  13. [name_f]Isla[/name_f]. Guys, I’ve tried. [name_m]Even[/name_m] though it sounds so so sweet, I just… can’t like it for some reason.
  14. [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f], [name_f]Calliope[/name_f], & [name_f]Vienna[/name_f] (what a jumbled up mess :joy:)
  15. [name_f]Louisa[/name_f], [name_f]Delilah[/name_f], & [name_f]Georgia[/name_f]
  16. I always loved [name_f]Anna[/name_f] “favor, grace”, and [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m] “son of the right hand”.
  17. [name_m]Benjamin[/name_m], [name_m]Ethan[/name_m], & [name_m]Noah[/name_m]
  18. Usually flow and vibe. Meanings do take a part, but generally I tend to steer away from names with more undesirable meanings.
  19. Nairi/Nayiri (Armenian), Aleksandra/Oleksandra (Russian & Ukrainian), a lot of European names.
  20. I used to spend a lot of time in the Writer’s corner, but I’ve started running a bunch of tournaments, so lately I’ve been in the Bandwagon section a lot
  21. [name_f]Love[/name_f] [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f], [name_f]Vienna[/name_f], & [name_f]Georgia[/name_f]
  22. I’d probably have a [name_m]Noah[/name_m] and an [name_f]Emma[/name_f], super common, but I do adore them
  23. [name_m]James[/name_m] or [name_m]Lucas[/name_m]
  24. Gosh, so many, but in terms of similar style, probably @may.rose, @Mary_Rose, @tori101, and @OctaviaMay. But everything is so so so lovely!!
  25. I’ve always loved @may.rose’s combos with [name_f]Jane[/name_f] and [name_f]Elisabeth[/name_f], and basically any of @winterlyricalfox’s combos! [name_f]Augusta[/name_f] [name_f]Esme[/name_f] [name_m]Bly[/name_m] is my longtime favorite!

  1. Today they would be Valentin, Flora, and Robin!
  2. M names for sure! I love so many of them
  3. If I was changing my name legally, I think I’d pick Marianna with the nickname Maya!
  4. I don’t really care for any of them, maybe Shepherd?
  5. I guess “European” is the closest I could get with just one word!
  6. Maksim & Flora :yellow_heart:
  7. Oksana! But it’s not pronounced with an o sound, so if that doesn’t count, then Orestis
  8. Višnja (cherry) & Klementyna (clementine) :cherries:
  9. Alkyoni (kingfisher) & Vuk (wolf) :wolf:
  10. Louella / Luella!
  11. Couldn’t think of any for this one, I don’t really follow celebrities at all :sweat_smile:
  12. Consonants!
  13. Matilda - I understand why it’s so well-loved, I just don’t care for it myself!
  14. Love this question!! I think i’d do Erzsébet, Mădălina & Kirsikka - Erzsi, Lina & Kirsi (all 3 are GPs because I wouldn’t feel comfortable using a name from a language that I don’t speak)
  15. Aleksander! I didn’t use to care for any of the Aleks-/Alex- names but I really like them now!
  16. Achelois - “she who washes away pain” & Gedimina “to long for you and keep you in my mind”
  17. In a hypothetical scenario, I’d choose Cosmin, Nicolae & Liviu, all Romanian! In a realistic one, Orestis, Alexis & Nikolaos (Greek)
  18. Flow & vibe! Mainly vibe, but it needs to sound nice too. I also need to make it work linguistically in my head? I couldn’t do, I don’t know, an Estonian first name with an Italian middle name
  19. Most of my favourites are not from my culture, so I’ll just list a few random ones :sweat_smile: Sorin, Liene, Halina, Rumen, Milena & Anikó
  20. Honestly I just search by “latest”, but I guess General Name Discussion!
  21. Ozren, if it counts? It’s the name of a mountain, so kind of a place name
  22. My country doesn’t release a list of the most popular names here, although we do have statistics for the most common names. Out of those, I’d choose Katerina (Aikaterini) & Nikolas (Nikolaos)
  23. Amaryllis!

    Such a hard question as I love combos from so many people but special shout-out to @Greyblue @BronwynParry1 @winterlyricalfox

6 Likes
  1. Your top boy, girl, and neutral name of today?
    [name_m]Oisín[/name_m] and [name_f]Helena[/name_f] for a boy and a girl, I don’t keep a separate neutral list, but looking through my lists two that I like equally for any gender would be [name_f]Samhain[/name_f] or [name_f]Haven[/name_f]

  2. If you could only use names starting with the same letter, which letter would you choose?
    I’d go with E, I have a lot of E favourites and a lot of them have nicknames that don’t start with E (Eleanor - [name_f]Nell[/name_f] or Nora), (Elsbeth - Betty), (Edmund - Teddy) so they wouldn’t have to deal with having the same initials in day to day life

  3. If you could rename yourself, what do you think would suit you?
    I don’t think I would because I quite like my name, but I do occasionally have to use a fake name at work for some of my writing and I picked [name_f]Sorcha[/name_f] for myself

  4. Your favourite occupational name?
    Definitely [name_m]Bowman[/name_m], it’s a happy accident of a family name I stumbled on in my family tree, the ancestor in question was named [name_m]Otis[/name_m] [name_m]Bowman[/name_m] (Bowman as middle not surname)

  5. If you could describe your naming style in only one word?
    Eclectic

  6. If you had to name (b/g) twins today, what would you name them?
    I’m not a big fan of naming twins any differently than singletons, so I would give them my top two combos, [name_m]Oisín[/name_m] [name_m]Thomas[/name_m] [name_m]Jude[/name_m] and [name_f]Helena[/name_f] [name_f]Lily[/name_f] [name_f]Joan[/name_f]

  7. Your favourite “O” name?
    It would have to be my top name in general, [name_m]Oisín[/name_m]. I don’t have a particular “O” favourite for girls, but if I have to pick I might say [name_f]Olwen[/name_f] or [name_f]Opal[/name_f].

  8. Your top 2 favourite botanical names?
    I’m not very creative when it comes to botanical names, I’d have to say [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] and [name_f]Violet[/name_f].

  9. Your top 2 favourite animal names?
    Once again, one of the answers has to be [name_m]Oisín[/name_m] which is an [name_f]Irish[/name_f] name that means ‘little deer’ and I’m not sure if it counts but my second option would be [name_m]Harlan[/name_m] which means ‘hare land’.

  10. A name you’re surprised isn’t more popular?
    [name_f]Greta[/name_f], between [name_f]Greta[/name_f] Thunberg’s activism and [name_f]Greta[/name_f] Gerwig and [name_f]Greta[/name_f] van [name_m]Fleet[/name_m] in the art world I would expect it to be higher in the charts, especially vintage revival names being so popular.

  11. Your favourite celebrity baby name choice?
    I love [name_m]David[/name_m] and [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] Tennant’s children (Ty, [name_f]Olive[/name_f], [name_m]Wilfred[/name_m], [name_f]Doris[/name_f] and Birdie). I also thought Bindi’s [name_f]Grace[/name_f] [name_m]Warrior[/name_m] [name_m]Irwin[/name_m] was very sweet and [name_m]Seth[/name_m] Meyers’ children [name_m]Ashe[/name_m] [name_m]Olson[/name_m], [name_m]Axel[/name_m] Strahl and [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] [name_f]Ruth[/name_f].

  12. Looking at your lists, do most of your names start with vowels or consonants?
    It’s consonants by a landslide for me.

  13. A popular name that you just can’t get into?
    I’m deeply confused as to why I don’t like [name_f]Matilda[/name_f], it feels like it should be my style, it ticks a lot of boxes but I just can’t get on board.

  14. If you had to name 3 girls using only guilty pleasure names?
    Stella-Jane [name_f]Hephzibah[/name_f] [name_f]Lore[/name_f]
    [name_f]Hosanna[/name_f] [name_f]Chickadee[/name_f] [name_f]Lovelace[/name_f]
    Méabha [name_f]Delphinium[/name_f] [name_f]Avonlea[/name_f]

  15. A name you didn’t like previously but is starting to grow on you?
    [name_f]Winifred[/name_f], it was always a no from me and then my husband suggested (I believe because it came up in a video game, but don’t quote me on that) and then I realised the meaning is lovely and found a lot of historical Winifred’s and now it’s in one of my favourite combos.

  16. Your top two favourite name meanings?
    I usually say [name_m]Reuben[/name_m], which means ‘behold, a son’, but today I’m feeling [name_f]Hephzibah[/name_f] which means ‘my delight is in her’ and Amargein which means ‘born of poetry’

  17. What you’d name three boys using names all from the same origin?
    [name_m]Oisín[/name_m] [name_m]Ferdia[/name_m] [name_m]Brennan[/name_m]
    [name_m]Ruairí[/name_m] Amargein [name_m]Lir[/name_m]
    [name_m]Alastar[/name_m] [name_m]Mícheál[/name_m] [name_m]Tadhg[/name_m]

  18. What do you focus on most in a name combo?
    I consider flow and how well it works with siblings and their last name, but I think the most important is names having a either literal or honour-based meaning.

  19. Names from a culture outside of your own that you think deserve appreciation?
    Finnish is the first to come to mind, especially Finnish girls names, some great ones are [name_f]Kielo[/name_f], [name_f]Lumi[/name_f], [name_f]Pinja[/name_f], [name_f]Ritva[/name_f], Sinikka, Terhi, [name_f]Tuulikki[/name_f] and Virva

  20. Your most frequented NB forum?
    I’m nearly caught up with [name_f]Bridie[/name_f] names a siblings for your combos thread, but I’m also really loving @kiomkio’s Home Design CAFs

  21. Your favourite place names?
    I don’t really consider place names, because my husband really dislikes them, so a lot of ‘place names’ I have on my list are names that are also places. Like [name_f]Helena[/name_f] is technically a place name. A name that I like the most because of a place is [name_m]Willard[/name_m], which is the name of a neighbourhood and the local beach where I grew up so it’s very special to me.

  22. If you had to use names from the top 10 in your country, which would you pick?
    For [name_f]Ireland[/name_f]:
    [name_m]Oisín[/name_m] [name_m]Cillian[/name_m] [name_m]James[/name_m]
    [name_f]Fiadh[/name_f] [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] [name_f]Grace[/name_f]

    For the US:
    [name_m]James[/name_m] [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] [name_m]Henry[/name_m]
    [name_f]Evelyn[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] [name_f]Sophia[/name_f]

  23. Your favourite name ending in “S”?
    Either [name_m]Myles[/name_m] or [name_m]James[/name_m], for girls it would probably be [name_f]Iris[/name_f]

  24. Berries who’s naming tastes you are most inspired by?
    @Greyblue, @handlion and @blueylit

  25. Your favourite combos currently on NB?
    [name_m]Almanzo[/name_m] [name_f]Briar[/name_f] [name_m]Joseph[/name_m] @handlion
    [name_m]Alcuin[/name_m] Rossa @blueylit

This is super fun!!

  1. Top boy name is [name_m]Daphnis[/name_m] and top girl name is [name_f]Augusta[/name_f] (as always lol), and top neutral name I’d pick Blythe!!

  2. Probably L, soooo many of my favorite names are Ls!! (Boys - [name_m]Lysander[/name_m], [name_m]Laertes[/name_m], [name_f]Lydian[/name_f], [name_m]Lionel[/name_m] Girls - [name_f]Lavinia[/name_f], [name_f]Louisa[/name_f], [name_f]Leonie[/name_f], Liriope)

  3. Someone once told me I would be a good [name_f]Glory[/name_f], which I think is such a compliment!! I think [name_f]Glory[/name_f] would definitely fit me well :slight_smile:

  4. Kind of an unusual occupational name, but Faraday!! It means “woodsman” :slight_smile: (I also love [name_m]Ferris[/name_m] as a nn for [name_m]Faraday[/name_m], which means ironworker!!)

  5. I would say mythological!! A lot of my names have mythology connections (if I could pick a more subjective word, I’d say fairytale-esque!!)

  6. Using my top names, I’d do [name_m]Daphnis[/name_m] [name_m]Holden[/name_m] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f] & [name_f]Augusta[/name_f] [name_f]Esme[/name_f] [name_f]Larkspur[/name_f], but not using my top names I’d go with Hesperian & [name_f]Cressida[/name_f]

  7. For girls I love [name_f]Odessa[/name_f], and for boys I love Orson!!

  8. This is really tough, but I’d probably go with [name_f]Marigold[/name_f] & Rosemary!! If international names count, definitely [name_f]Madelief[/name_f] & [name_f]Liriope[/name_f] :slight_smile:

  9. This is a little stretch, but my favorite animal names are [name_m]Lionel[/name_m] & Arthur!!

  10. I’m super surprised that [name_f]Adalet[/name_f] isn’t more popular!! I feel like it combines the popular [name_f]Ada[/name_f] with a sweet “ette” ending

  11. [name_f]Maude[/name_f] [name_f]Annabelle[/name_f] Apatow is definitely one of my favorites!! I also really like Lily-Rose [name_f]Melody[/name_f] Depp, a little floral but so cute!!

  12. Most of my names definitely start with consonants!! For the girls, L and M lead the pack, and for the boys, L and R are frontrunners!!

  13. I personally don’t like Matilda!! I’ve tried to like her (especially since she was my grandma’s “almost name”) but she just feels so… not me!!

  14. This is tough since I don’t have many names that are GPs (most are just on my list!!), but going really out there, I’d pick [name_f]Ingalill[/name_f], [name_f]Berengaria[/name_f], and Altalune!!

  15. I’ve been on the [name_f]Solange[/name_f] train lately!! I love that she has the nn [name_m]Sol[/name_m], and she feels pretty subtly feminine which I like!!

  16. Definitely would have to be [name_f]Tesni[/name_f] (warmth from the sun) and [name_f]Solveig[/name_f] (daughter of the sun)

  17. [name_m]Daphnis[/name_m], [name_m]Lysander[/name_m], & Laertes!! (Challenging myself not to use Greek names lol - I’d go with [name_m]Lionel[/name_m], [name_m]Sylvan[/name_m], & Augustine)

  18. I usually focus most on flow, but when I’m trying to make my “main” combos, I try to follow a pattern of grand first name, sweet first middle with a personal connection, and then a cool out-there second middle!!

  19. Definitely more [name_f]Indian[/name_f] names!! I’ve been adoring [name_f]Kalindi[/name_f], [name_f]Ananda[/name_f], [name_f]Lakshmi[/name_f], [name_f]Kavya[/name_f], and Hara!!

  20. I love the Quick [name_m]Poll[/name_m] Thread!! Voting is prob one of my favorite things, and I really try to put a lot of thought into it!!

  21. [name_f]Forever[/name_f] in love with [name_f]Augusta[/name_f], but not counting her probably the lovely [name_f]Calais[/name_f] or Vienna!!

  22. For a girl I’d probably go with [name_f]Evelyn[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f], and for a boy I’d pick [name_m]Noah[/name_m] Oliver!!

  23. [name_m]Daphnis[/name_m] is my favorite s-ending name!! Other than him, I like [name_f]Pallas[/name_f] for a girl, and for boys I like [name_m]Rhys[/name_m], [name_m]Aletris[/name_m], and Paris!!

  24. I am SUPER inspired by the lovely names of @tallemaja , @Greyblue (always has the best suggestions!!), @marigold.solstice , @smileymiley , @OctaviaMay , and @mellona !!

Posting 25 in the next post b/c I’m out of tags!!

  8. They’re both for girls, but I love [name_f]Amaryllis[/name_f] and [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f]
  9. Definitely [name_m]Robin[/name_m] and [name_f]Fawn[/name_f]

  17. Scottish origin: [name_m]Ewan[/name_m], [name_m]Lachlan[/name_m], and [name_m]Graham[/name_m]
  18. Flow and vibe for sure. I need the name to seem happy in some way and the first name needs to flow well with the middle name for me to be satisfied with the combo
  19. I think Hawaiian and Samoan names are so pretty, for both girls and boys
  20. I used to be into baby name games a lot, but now I lean towards sibling names
  21. I like [name_f]Vienna[/name_f] and [name_f]Holland[/name_f]
  22. I would pick [name_m]James[/name_m] and [name_f]Evelyn[/name_f]
  23. [name_m]Ellis[/name_m] for a boy, hands down
  24. I would have to look pretty far back but someone named their daughter [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] [name_f]October[/name_f] and I thought it was so beautiful

  11. [name_f]Rose[/name_f] [name_f]Opal[/name_f] [name_f]Esme[/name_f] (Stacey Solomon) and [name_f]Theodora[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] (Robbie Williams) unsure about boy names.

  16. [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] ~ daughter of the sea
    [name_f]Apricity[/name_f] ~ the warmth of the sun in the winter
    These meanings are just wonderful!!!

  17. [name_m]Solomon[/name_m], [name_m]Joshua[/name_m] + [name_m]Noah[/name_m] = Hebrew Origin

  18. Meaning! The meaning has to be personal to me like honour choice so that’s meaningful for me or the name has a positive meaning that I feel connected too.

  19. [name_m]Akello[/name_m]! I think he’s gorgeous

  20. [name_f]Baby[/name_f] name games I love a CAF
