I like [name]Zoe[/name] Challey.
I don’t think it rhymes. I can imagine having a good friend at school with that name, I mean, hypothetically. I like the name [name]Claire[/name], I sort of love it actually, but when I say [name]Claire[/name] Challey, it’s not that I can’t imagine someone with that name, but I like the sound of it less - it sounds like a spoonerism (Chair Clalley). It also sounds like a different personality. I wrote in another section of the forums, not necessarily forgo the middle name there, but say the name how people will call them, first-last, and I think [name]Zoe[/name] Challey sounds like a friend. [name]Claire[/name] Challey sounds like maybe she won’t let you sit at her lunch table or she’s the one who gets stuck playing the tuba. Not a whole lot, just a little bit. [name]Zoe[/name] [name]Claire[/name] Challey is a great name. It’s a fun friend, and you don’t hear the middle name to get that slightly, very slightly, negative impression a lot.
[name]Penelope[/name] is a nice name, I used to love it, but I don’t like [name]Penny[/name] so much. [name]Penelope[/name] Challey - apply the rule without the middle name (as she will hear it most of her life) and hear it. It’s a little too la la la. It’s fun to say, a little too fun!
[name]Dinah[/name] - my opinion shouldn’t matter, but I don’t think this is a name more than a fad.
[name]Beatrix[/name] Challey is just hard to say. Unless they call her [name]Bea[/name] or [name]Trixie[/name]. [name]Trixie[/name] Challey is also friendly and fun to say. [name]Bea[/name] is not horrible, but I’ve always thought of [name]Bea[/name] as be. [name]Bea[/name] Challey - ok, I am!
