coming out of the closet!

I recently posted a thread about the name [name]Nevaeh[/name], where I admited to actually seceretly liking it. Not that I would [name]EVER[/name] use it, but I like the sound of it. So it was suggested that there be a thread for ‘coming out of the closet’ about names we seceretly like but have been afraid to admit! So here is your chance to lay all your cards on the table! Other names I hate to admit I like because they totally go against everything I am for-
Now its your turn!!!

Hmm, well I guess…

Lust - Awful meaning!


Okay, my turn… [name]Even[/name] though these names are dated or trendy, I like:


(Years ago, I had a pet bird named [name]Jeffrey[/name]. When it laid an egg, I renamed her Jeffrietta.)


[name]Emerson[/name] (on a girl)
[name]Rowan[/name] (on a girl)




These names definitely stay in my metaphorical name closet. I just dont think the family would understand lol.
(But…I wish I was brave enough to use some of these :stuck_out_tongue: )


All girls!


Although I don’t really believe in being ashamed of liking names, or having ‘guilty pleasures’, I do have some names I like that I’m less outspoken about because it’s rather odd to like them…
For girls there are these:

And for boys:
[name]Klaus[/name] (prn. KLOWS)

Also a few word names like [name]Freedom[/name]/[name]Freeman[/name], Wish, [name]Reason[/name], [name]Bear[/name], [name]Friend[/name] and [name]Blue[/name] are more out there than others, and I don’t talk too often about those…
It’s very strange though, because I also like Remeber, [name]Evening[/name], [name]Heron[/name] and [name]Bravery[/name], but for some reason I find those less strange :S

[name]Lovely[/name] topic, I must say! ^^

And of the ones already mentioned, I’m all for these ones:
[name]Conrad[/name] (nn [name]Rad[/name], so awesome!!)
[name]Dove[/name] (with longer name [name]Doveva[/name] maybe)
Wonder (and [name]Marvel[/name] :slight_smile:
[name]Bellamy[/name] (but on a BOY!)
[name]Chauncey[/name]!! (also awesome!)
[name]Eulalia[/name] (although I prefer [name]Eulalie[/name])
[name]Psyche[/name] (and Mneme)
[name]Nyx[/name] (and [name]Helios[/name], [name]Icarus[/name] and [name]Selene[/name])
[name]Aidan[/name] (it means ‘fire’! I have to love it!)

Okay, okay. I adore [name]Shakespeare[/name] names, even the really weird ones. And though most of these should never find their way on to a real child, I adore them: (I won’t put the really cute or normal ones… just the ones I’m a little embarrassed about)

Fortinbras (I really love the character, but come on, “bras!?!”)
[name]Hero[/name] (I [name]ADORE[/name] this for a girl)
[name]Patience[/name] (I just found an old Pilgrim on my husband’s line named [name]Patience[/name] [name]Parker[/name] and I thought it was the greatest thing ever)
[name]Puck[/name] (if not for the unfortunate rhyme…)
Touchstone (I love this name… future cat?)

Also, even though I really dislike word names, I love [name]Sonnet[/name] and [name]Garnet[/name].
