I love so many of these names!
G: I adore [name]Grace[/name] and [name]Genevieve[/name] (which is definitely not too popular, though the possible nn [name]Gen[/name]/[name]Jen[/name] is), so they’re tied for first. [name]Georgina[/name] is pretty but I so prefer [name]Georgia[/name] or, my personal favorite, [name]Georgiana[/name]. I love [name]Gwen[/name] as a nn for [name]Gwendolen[/name] and [name]Gemma[/name] is pretty but not doing much for me in terms of standing out. [name]Gabrielle[/name] feels slightly dated, in my opinion.
H: My first choice, [name]Hazel[/name], is spunky and fresh but it is sadly but justly on the rise… I must admit, [name]Hermione[/name] does immediately make me think of [name]Harry[/name] [name]Potter[/name] but most people (including me!) would regard this as a good thing. I would be more worried at the fact that [name]Hermione[/name] is rather a lot of name for a baby and the only plausible nn I can find is [name]Mimi[/name]. I’m not as big a fan of [name]Hope[/name] as others on Nameberry because while the meaning is wonderful, it feels abrupt and lacks melody to my ears: I also find it slightly dated.
I: I tend to love ‘I’ names. There’s something so sleek and stream-lined of how they look on paper. [name]Iris[/name] is my favorite, followed by [name]Isla[/name] (growing in popularity very fast) and [name]Isabel[/name] (already very popular, not to mention her sister, [name]Isabella[/name].) I used to adore [name]Imogen[/name] and am trying to fall back in love but all of the sudden, it feels strange and heavy I’m not a fan of [name]India[/name] (too reminiscent of the country and unless you have close ties to it, I would steer away) and [name]Iona[/name]/[name]Ione[/name] (it will definitely encounter pronunciation problems and it feels awkward to me and vowel-heavy.)
