The first names I’m loving at the moment are: Belphoebe, [name_f]Cosima[/name_f], and Vespertine.
I’ve already posted about these names and I thought that taking a break from names for a while would give me some clarity, but I’m still kind of unsure. I’ve been searching for new name inspirations, but I keep coming back to these same names.
I really want a name that screams “faerie”.
I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] Belphoebe. It makes me think of magical, mystical nights in the forest. Fairies. I see sparkling, swirling blues, purples, and pinks. I love unusual, out there, magical, over the top names, but I hate how familiar “[name_f]Bel[/name_f]” and “phoebe” are. Belphoebe is a very uncommon name but it has familiar sounds and I worry that it takes away from how special the name is. That’s my only problem with Belphoebe. What does the name make you think of?
I love [name_f]Cosima[/name_f]. It’s magical, starry, and gorgeous but this name may be becoming a little too “normal” for me (as a first name). I’ll probably take it off the first name list.
I feel like I just can’t get a good grasp on Vespertine. I love it but it confuses me. The name’s mysterious to me. [name_f]Misty[/name_f], foggy, cool nights. The darkening evening sky. Stars. Whispers. I don’t know. What does it make you think of?
I’ve also been crushing on [name_f]Bellatrix[/name_f], [name_f]Persephone[/name_f] and [name_f]Primrose[/name_f], but [name_f]Persephone[/name_f]'s rising in popularity and I worry that [name_f]Bellatrix[/name_f] and [name_f]Primrose[/name_f] will make people automatically think of [name_m]Harry[/name_m] [name_m]Potter[/name_m] and The Hunger Games. I love both franchises (especially HP) but would that be too much? These names probably won’t go anywhere.
What do you think of [name_f]Circe[/name_f] (“sur-see”) as a first name?
For the middle names I was thinking maybe [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] Evenstar, [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] Tinuviel, or [name_f]Luna[/name_f] [name_f]Alice[/name_f].
*Anyone have any opinions on any of these names? Or suggestions?
A few names I really like in the middle:
I don’t like first names that are too common or popular. I’m perfectly fine and comfortable with using unusual, over the top names as first names. I love names relating to nighttime and I love nature names.
Thank you to anyone who read through everything! Sorry it’s so long.
