1 week till my due date and I’m adding names to my girls list? What is wrong with me?I’ve still not decided on my top 3 girls names to bring to the birth. I’ve got my boys names…
Ok, bare with me. I love the NN [name_f]Hildie[/name_f] and [name_f]Vera[/name_f] and want to find a way to them, but [name_f]Matilda[/name_f] is too popular. I found Everild. She was an somewhat obscure 7th century [name_m]Saint[/name_m]. What do y’all think about adding an H? Everhild or even Everhilda Too much? I never ever thought I’d be “making up” a name. I am historically opposed to it, but here I am. Also, ‘[name_u]Ever[/name_u]’ names, are they too popular?
Here’s what NB says about it:
"The name [name_u]Averill[/name_u] is a girl’s name of [name_f]English[/name_f] origin meaning “boar battle”.
One of the rare [name_f]English[/name_f] surname names originally derived from a female given name: Eoforhild (Everild), meaning “boar battle”. Also spelled [name_u]Averill[/name_u], it’s an extremely rare choice today, but shares sounds with fashionable [name_f]Ava[/name_f] and [name_u]Avery[/name_u]."
