Hello, I’m not sure if I can do this on in this forum, but I just wanted to properly introduce myself.
My name is [name]Eleanor[/name] “[name]Elea[/name]” (pronounced ‘[name]Ella[/name]’), I’m a school teacher in my early-ish 20s, I live in [name]England[/name] and I have been a name addict for the last 20 years (since my sister was born and I pitched in on her name!). My name interests lie in Celtic (esp Welsh) and Medieval names.

I’m not close to having children yet, but here is my current list for your perusal:

[name]William[/name] [name]Rhys[/name] – this has been #1 since I was 13 and honours both my grandfathers
[name]Frederick[/name] [name]Jago[/name]
[name]Julian[/name] [name]Hayes[/name] – [name]Hayes[/name] is my gma’s maiden name.
[name]Asher[/name] [name]Benedict[/name]
[name]Leo[/name] [name]Dominic[/name]
[name]Tristan[/name] [name]Oliver[/name]
Aidric [name]Matthias[/name]
Macsen [name]Jude[/name] – Macsen looks a bit trendy but is the Welsh form of [name]Maximus[/name].
[name]Theodore[/name] [name]Bryn[/name]
[name]Jonas[/name] [name]Beckett[/name]
[name]Alexander[/name] [name]Jonah[/name]

[name]Annabel[/name] [name]Carys[/name]
[name]Lydia[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Evelina[/name] [name]Seren[/name]
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Isla[/name] / [name]Lily[/name]
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Mirabel[/name]
[name]Ada[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]
[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Kerensa[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Iris[/name]
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Aurelia[/name]
[name]Viola[/name] [name]Rosalind[/name]
[name]Livia[/name] [name]Carys[/name]

I hope to get to know you all better! :slight_smile:

[name]Welcome[/name], [name]Elea[/name]! I like your nickname, and your full name! I’m [name]Lyndsay[/name]. You’ve got some really great names picked out.

[name]William[/name] [name]Rhys[/name] – This is my favorite, especially because it honors your grandfathers. [name]Rhys[/name] [name]William[/name] would also be cool.
[name]Frederick[/name] [name]Jago[/name]- I love [name]Frederick[/name], but I’m not sure about [name]Jago[/name].
[name]Julian[/name] [name]Hayes[/name] – This is very nice, do you like [name]Julius[/name]? [name]Julius[/name] [name]Hayes[/name] sounds cool.
[name]Asher[/name] [name]Benedict[/name]- I like both of these names, but something about them together doesn’t seem right.
[name]Leo[/name] [name]Dominic[/name]- Hmm, I think I would switch it up and make this [name]Leo[/name] [name]Benedict[/name] and [name]Asher[/name] [name]Dominic[/name].
[name]Tristan[/name] [name]Oliver[/name]- I’m afraid [name]Tristan[/name] may start to ring feminine, but maybe not. I like this combo.
Aidric [name]Matthias[/name]- I’ve never heard Aidric before, it’s got kind of a cool sound, but you’d have to be aware he’d probably get called [name]Ric[/name]. I like [name]Adrian[/name] more, I think.
Macsen [name]Jude[/name] – This is cool!
[name]Theodore[/name] [name]Bryn[/name]- I don’t like [name]Bryn[/name], but love [name]Theodore[/name]!
[name]Jonas[/name] [name]Beckett[/name]- I wouldn’t suggest naming a baby [name]Jonas[/name] right now, but maybe in a few years (after their fame has died down)
[name]Alexander[/name] [name]Jonah[/name]- Nice, but you’ve got much more interesting names on your list.

[name]Annabel[/name] [name]Carys[/name]- Very pretty
[name]Lydia[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]- I think [name]Lydia[/name] is one of those perfect names
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Isla[/name] / [name]Lily[/name]- [name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Isla[/name] is a lot easier to say, and it’s beautiful
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Mirabel[/name]- nice!
[name]Ada[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name]- I’d be worried about her blending in with all the [name]Ava[/name]'s
[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Kerensa[/name]- [name]LOVE[/name] this! The meanings Youthful and [name]Love[/name] are great.
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Iris[/name]- [name]LOVE[/name] [name]LOVE[/name] [name]LOVE[/name]!
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Aurelia[/name]- very romantic
[name]Viola[/name] [name]Rosalind[/name]- ditto- though I just learned that [name]Viola[/name] means rape in Spanish… very sad because it’s one of my favorite names, too.
[name]Livia[/name] [name]Carys[/name]- [name]Carys[/name] means love, too. That’s cool. I love [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Kerensa[/name] more, though!

I hope to get to know you all better! :)[/quote]

[name]Hi[/name]! It’s nice to sort-of meet you.
I like a lot of your names - you have great taste! Celtic names are so nice. My favourites have to be Irish Gaelic, though; just so pretty.

[name]William[/name] [name]Rhys[/name] - very nice. Classic and timeless.
[name]Frederick[/name] [name]Jago[/name] - Again, [name]Frederick[/name] is a classic.
[name]Julian[/name] [name]Hayes[/name] - I’m not fond of the sound of [name]Julian[/name], but [name]Hayes[/name] is very nice.
[name]Asher[/name] [name]Benedict[/name] - Unusual, and [name]Asher[/name] is trendy without being easily dated.
[name]Leo[/name] [name]Dominic[/name] - I love.
[name]Tristan[/name] [name]Oliver[/name] - Again, I love.
Aidric [name]Matthias[/name] - I really like Aidric.
Macsen [name]Jude[/name] - You might get a lot of people calling him [name]Mason[/name] …
[name]Theodore[/name] [name]Bryn[/name] - I love [name]Theodore[/name], especially the adorable nn [name]Teddy[/name] for a little boy!
[name]Jonas[/name] [name]Beckett[/name] - The [name]Jonas[/name] Brothers. Ugh.
[name]Alexander[/name] [name]Jonah[/name] - [name]Alexander[/name] is timeless.

[name]Annabel[/name] [name]Carys[/name] - Very pretty.
[name]Lydia[/name] [name]Maeve[/name] - I love [name]Maeve[/name]!
[name]Evelina[/name] [name]Seren[/name] - Beautiful.
[name]Beatrice[/name] [name]Isla[/name] / [name]Lily[/name] - I adore [name]Beatrice[/name], and seem to be the only person who prefers it to [name]Beatrix[/name]. [name]Isla[/name] and [name]Lily[/name] are both very pretty, too.
[name]Eliza[/name] [name]Mirabel[/name] - Not as fond of this one, although [name]Mirabel[/name] does have a nice, romantic, I-Capture-The-Castle style feel to it.
[name]Ada[/name] [name]Genevieve[/name] - I’ve always though [name]Ada[/name] looks odd written down, but out loud I love it. And [name]Genevieve[/name] is great!
[name]Juliet[/name] [name]Kerensa[/name] - Not as fond of this one.
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Iris[/name] - I’ve never been able to like [name]Iris[/name] as a name, because of many biology lessons spent learning the parts of the eye … and dissecting one. Yuck. [name]Penelope[/name] has a really satisfying sound to it - I adore it.
[name]Rose[/name] [name]Aurelia[/name] - I love this.
[name]Viola[/name] [name]Rosalind[/name] - And this. [name]Rosalind[/name] is nice instead of the uber-popular [name]Rose[/name], too.
[name]Livia[/name] [name]Carys[/name] - I’m not fond of [name]Livia[/name], just because it looks abrupt instead of [name]Olivia[/name]. That said, I really love [name]Melia[/name]!
