I realized after naming my son that many names were now off-limits to me. Of course I know I can choose whatever names I want but I would like there to be some cohesion in my choices.
My son’s name is [name]Rowan[/name], which is actually unisex (despite it’s overwhelming masculinity to my ears) and so I realized that from now on I pretty much need to either stick with all unisex names (not my style at all) or give my girls very feminine names to clarify.
So the plan is uber-femininity for the girls and strong but beautiful boy’s names.
Now I am in the process of mourning the loss of some names that just won’t be usable with the path I’ve chosen.
Girl’s names that are out (too unisex):
Boy’s names that are out (too hip, too hard or just a different genre):
[name]Linden[/name] (too close to our last name)
[name]Oren[/name] (too close to [name]Rowan[/name])
Anything that starts with L
[name]How[/name] about you? Any names you really love that just won’t work?
