I too am a name nerd…it’s almost something I’ve kinda felt like I need to hide. I’ve been into names since probably junior high (I remember asking for a name book for [name]Christmas[/name] or my birthday, can’t remember which). I had a list of those I liked and I remember my father cursing my womb until I could think of proper names (somewhat jokingly…I remember my mom was like “don’t say that! In the Bible, father’s curses came true!”)
I have names I’ve liked for a long time and names I like but don’t think I could actually use. I now have a last name to go with the names I’ve been thinking of (got married last year). Our last name, like [name]Amanda[/name], begins and ends with A, same sounds. It is three syllables.
My question is, do you think this means I need to stay away from names that end in A or the uh sound? [name]Nadia[/name], [name]Hannah[/name], etc.
