i’m in a bit of a slump lately (not really wanting to go into detail about it on a public forum atm, but names have become a really hard thing for me to enjoy), and i don’t seem to be loving/feeling the names on my list as much as i usually do/used to. i know this style is perfect for s/o and i, so i really want to find joy in these names again, but i feel like i need a little bit of help?
my list so far for both genders combined is:
so, tell me what you love about these names for me, or in general! give me all the imagery, the warm and fuzzies, the positive comments and associations, etc.!
[name_f]Stephanie[/name_f]: A soft and sweet name with flowery imagery! I imagine a little [name_f]Stephanie[/name_f] to be very friendly, and kind! I think it could suit a quiet, soft-spirited girl, or a more outgoing personality!
[name_u]Courtney[/name_u]: In a way, it sounds very regal! I imagine a lively personality, possible a more tom-boyish girl who likes skateboarding! I think she would have a very trendy fashion sense!
[name_f]Karalee[/name_f]: I love the many nickname options, like [name_f]Kara[/name_f], [name_u]Lee[/name_u], or [name_f]Carrie[/name_f] (any spelling)! A very fun and spunky name!
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]: You can’t beat a truly classic name like [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]! It is timeless and elegant, and there are so many opportunities for sweet nicknames! I don’t think this name will ever grow old or lose its sparkle!
[name_f]Katherine[/name_f]: Another classic! [name_u]Love[/name_u] the nicknames [name_u]Kit[/name_u] and [name_f]Kate[/name_f]! [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] is a name that ages really well and can suit a variety of personalities!
[name_m]Mark[/name_m]: I really enjoy the sound of [name_m]Mark[/name_m]! It is short, easy to spell, and has a good balance of soft and strong sounds! I think it would be really sweet on a little boy today.
[name_m]Kevin[/name_m]: I think the Home Alone association makes it easier for people to picture [name_m]Kevin[/name_m] on a kid! The V sound is also something I really like about it!
@MG1257 & @Greyblue thank you both!
I really like [name_f]Karalee[/name_f]! I’ve been digging smoosh names lately and this is a very cute, fun, joyful one. [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] and [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] are also such stunning, gorgeous classics with so many nickname options, and [name_m]Mark[/name_m] and [name_m]Kevin[/name_m] are wonderful, handsome, solid choices.
[name_f]Stephanie[/name_f]- spunky and sweet. Most Stephanie’s I have met are really kind and generous people. I do think of the show Full House but I loved Stephanie’s character so for me it’s a great association.
[name_u]Courtney[/name_u] - my cousin’s name so for me it’s filled with love and warmth. It feel like a wearable name for lots of different types of people - athletic, artistic, etc.
[name_f]Karalee[/name_f]- [name_f]My[/name_f] favorite on the list. Sounds everyone is familiar with but not a name heard often. Has a modern feel but not in a trendy way. More of a fresh take on trends
[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]- a classic. This name has endless wearability to me. So many nickname options that a person could use and feel suited for.
[name_f]Katherine[/name_f]- another classic. This name is similar to [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] for me but I like it more. It has some spunk to it where as [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] feels a more fanciful femme. [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] and the various nicknames make me feel comforted. You can know a million and yet it doesn’t feel overused because it’s timeless.
