Greeting Card Names

When looking up templates for [name_u]Christmas[/name_u] greeting cards last month, I got very distracted by all the names on the templates! And then, of course, I decided to look at the cards made for birth announcements to see what names could be found there. :wink: And boy was I surprised. Amidst the pretty but very popular-sounding combinations like [name_m]Jackson[/name_m] [name_m]Matthew[/name_m], [name_f]Ava[/name_f] [name_f]Faith[/name_f], [name_u]Aiden[/name_u] [name_m]Jacob[/name_m], and [name_u]Alexis[/name_u] [name_u]Riley[/name_u], there were some names with definite nameberry flavor, which I thought was really interesting. Here are a few I came across:

[name_f]Agnes[/name_f] [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f]
[name_f]Jasmine[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f]
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_u]Gray[/name_u]
[name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_f]Lucille[/name_f]
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Mary[/name_f]
[name_f]Winifred[/name_f] [name_f]Adele[/name_f]

[name_u]Arlo[/name_u] [name_m]Patrick[/name_m]
[name_m]Winston[/name_m] [name_m]John[/name_m]
[name_m]Maxwell[/name_m] [name_m]Ezra[/name_m]
[name_m]Holden[/name_m] [name_m]Milo[/name_m]
[name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Matthew[/name_m]
[name_u]James[/name_u] [name_m]Lucas[/name_m]
[name_u]Ashby[/name_u] [name_m]Rider[/name_m]
[name_m]Gregory[/name_m] [name_m]Edmund[/name_m]

[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] & [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Chloe[/name_f] & [name_f]Agnes[/name_f]
[name_m]Graham[/name_m] & [name_u]Charlie[/name_u]

Any opinions on the above names, and the fact that a mainstream company is using them…do you think it means they are destined for much wider use than they currently have?

Wow! I don’t usually see very many obscure names in catalogs, but these combinations are stunning. My favorites: [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u] and [name_m]Maxwell[/name_m] [name_m]Ezra[/name_m].

Okay this is going to be a long response sorry…
[name_f]Agnes[/name_f] [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]- I’m not a huge fan of either names and they don’t flow together well. 3/10
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f]- Absolutely love both names and they look and sound great together! [name_u]Love[/name_u] it! 9/10
[name_f]Jasmine[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f]- I love [name_f]Jasmine[/name_f], not a big fan of [name_f]Louise[/name_f]. They don’t fit together well in my opinion.
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_u]Gray[/name_u]- one of my favorites on the list! [name_u]Gray[/name_u] isn’t used often so it’s unique but not too out there! 9.5/10
[name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_f]Lucille[/name_f]- If you like the name [name_f]Lucille[/name_f] then you’ll love this. Although not a fan of the name, it flows well and it’s very cute. 6/10
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]- similar to [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f] but not quite as good in my opinion. 7/10
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Mary[/name_f]- They are good names but not together. 5/10
[name_f]Winifred[/name_f] [name_f]Adele[/name_f]- Though not a fan of the names, they go well together. 5.5/10
[name_u]Arlo[/name_u] [name_m]Patrick[/name_m]- Has a nice look to it. 7/10
[name_m]Winston[/name_m] [name_m]John[/name_m]- Not bad but would look better as [name_m]John[/name_m] [name_m]Winston[/name_m]. 4/10
[name_m]Maxwell[/name_m] [name_m]Ezra[/name_m]- Doesn’t look or sound well together. 3/10
[name_m]Holden[/name_m] [name_m]Milo[/name_m]- If you pronounce [name_m]Milo[/name_m] as Mee-lo, I love it. If it’s My-lo, then not as much. 5.5/10
[name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Matthew[/name_m]- dislike name [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] and dislike sound of names together. 3/10

[name_u]Ashby[/name_u] [name_m]Rider[/name_m]- I don’t know if I would use it, but I do really like it. 8/10
[name_m]Gregory[/name_m] [name_m]Edmund[/name_m]- I like this one, it’s good for a little boy but it grows well too. 8/10
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] and [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]- I love [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]! And these names sound great together!

[name_f]Agnes[/name_f] [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]- I don’t really like [name_f]Agnes[/name_f], but [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] is okay
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f]- [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] seems like a creative name, [name_f]Jane[/name_f] a little more classic, together they sound great
[name_f]Jasmine[/name_f] [name_f]Louise[/name_f]- [name_f]Jasmine[/name_f] is okay, [name_f]Louise[/name_f] sounds very classy, but I prefer it when it’s a boy ([name_m]Louis[/name_m])
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_u]Gray[/name_u]- I love [name_u]Gray[/name_u], it sounds great. [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] is cool, because you can shorten it to [name_u]Tris[/name_u] (like in Divergent) and that’s cool
[name_f]Adeline[/name_f] [name_f]Lucille[/name_f]- great combination, not a huge fan of these names though
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f] [name_u]June[/name_u]- there’s the same combi again, only [name_u]June[/name_u] and not [name_f]Jane[/name_f], like the name [name_f]Jane[/name_f] better
[name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] [name_f]Mary[/name_f]- Better combination than with [name_u]Gray[/name_u], but I like [name_u]Gray[/name_u] better as a name
[name_f]Winifred[/name_f] [name_f]Adele[/name_f]- [name_f]Winifred[/name_f] is cute, because you can shorten to [name_f]Winnie[/name_f], a name I personally like a lot
[name_u]Arlo[/name_u] [name_m]Patrick[/name_m]- Not a fan of this combination, but [name_u]Arlo[/name_u]'s a cool name
[name_m]Winston[/name_m] [name_m]John[/name_m]- I love [name_m]Winston[/name_m] as a name, but not a fan of [name_m]John[/name_m]
[name_m]Maxwell[/name_m] [name_m]Ezra[/name_m]- not a good combination, but [name_m]Maxwell[/name_m] is a great name
[name_m]Holden[/name_m] [name_m]Milo[/name_m]- I love the [name_m]Milo[/name_m] (if My-lo), [name_m]Holden[/name_m] not that much
[name_m]Oscar[/name_m] [name_m]Matthew[/name_m]- [name_m]Matthew[/name_m] is a cute name, [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] isnt one of my favorites
[name_u]James[/name_u] [name_m]Lucas[/name_m]- I personally like [name_u]James[/name_u] as a name, if [name_m]Lucas[/name_m] was shortened to [name_m]Luke[/name_m] ([name_u]James[/name_u] [name_m]Luke[/name_m]) that be an adorable name and combination
[name_u]Ashby[/name_u] [name_m]Rider[/name_m]- [name_m]Rider[/name_m] is okay, but with an Y ([name_m]Ryder[/name_m]) I like it better, combination is great though
[name_m]Gregory[/name_m] [name_m]Edmund[/name_m]- not really my style, but a great combo
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m] and [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]- these names sound cute together
[name_f]Chloe[/name_f] and [name_f]Agnes[/name_f]- [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] (if not pronounced as Klowe) is a cute name, [name_f]Agnes[/name_f] already said, not my style
[name_m]Graham[/name_m] and [name_u]Charlie[/name_u]- love the name [name_u]Charlie[/name_u], especially for a boy, they sound good together too
