So… I’m sick of looking at my list. I never thought that would happen but I had 5 or 6 names I was obsessing over and now I can’t really stand to look at them. Has this ever happened to you? [name]How[/name] do I fall back in love with my names?
What I decided to do was take one of them that I wasn’t that sick of ([name]Frederick[/name]) and make a new list based on that. I would love some opinions. This is what I came up with:
Other boys’ names:
[name]Charles[/name]- I [name]LOVE[/name] this name, if only my husband would let me use it. It’s his middle name and he says he can’t see it as a first name.
[name]Lucius[/name]- this is a new-found love. But I think it is so great. And I love the nn [name]Luke[/name] or [name]Luca[/name].
[name]Alexander[/name]- this has been on and off the list for a while, but I like it with [name]Frederick[/name] because they have the same style, length, etc.
[name]Alice[/name]- my husband, a while ago, told me he really didn’t like this name, then the other night told me that I was crazy because he really liked it; after a moment of confusion, it went straight back on the list.
[name]Sylvia[/name]- we like this name. I prefer [name]Sylvie[/name] (by far) but he wants a longer formal name, which I am totally on board with and [name]Sylvie[/name] is the obvious nickname.
[name]Jane[/name]- this had been allocated to mn status, but I thought maybe I wanted to bring it out because it is first name material.
Please let me know what you think. And any other suggestions that go with [name]Frederick[/name] (especially boys.) Thanks!
