Looking for New Name Crushes

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] Berries! I’m trying to expand my list a bit. I’m not planning on having children any time soon, this is just for fun. Because what name nerd doesn’t love thinking about names even without an excuse? This is my current user card.

Boys: [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] [name_m]Graham[/name_m], [name_u]Ezra[/name_u] [name_u]Gardner[/name_u], [name_m]Adlai[/name_m] [name_m]Joseph[/name_m], [name_m]Orson[/name_m] [name_u]Mack[/name_u]
Girls: [name_f]Orianna[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f], [name_f]Avielle[/name_f] [name_u]Bay[/name_u], [name_f]Lavinia[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f], [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] [name_f]Hope[/name_f], [name_u]Ezri[/name_u] [name_f]Sonnet[/name_f], [name_f]Edie[/name_f] [name_f]Mabel[/name_f]

I just thought of [name_f]Edie[/name_f] [name_f]Mabel[/name_f] a minute ago, which is what got me thinking about expanding my list more. As you can see I’m drawn to names that start with vowels. I also love the V and Z sounds. I also obviously like 3-4 syllable names for girls, but I feel like I should add some shorter options. I adore old fashioned names.

I’m really into word names for middles these days. Lately I’ve been loving nature middles, so feel free to suggest some if you have any crushes you want to share. I’ll probably try to find a first for [name_u]Larkspur[/name_u] one of these days.

Thanks, berry buds! :strawberry:

Oh wow, thank you all so much! You guys really nailed my style. A lot of you actually mentioned names I’ve loved for a long time, and new ones I’m happy to discover.

@MG1257 thank you! :grin: I’ve had my eye on [name_m]Evander[/name_m] for a while, and I’ve also recently started really liking [name_f]Opal[/name_f]. So many great suggestions, and I love middles [name_m]Wolfe[/name_m], [name_u]Lark[/name_u], and [name_u]Reed[/name_u].

@Dulia1 thank you! :blush: [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] is so nice, isn’t it? I’m glad to hear you and others here like [name_f]Lavinia[/name_f] as well, as people I’ve mentioned it to irl don’t appreciate it as much as I do.

@KaiLun you went above and beyond! I so appreciate all of these, and I really love a lot of them. I’m going to take some time in a bit to really go through them all properly, but wow. These are so my style. [name_m]Ozias[/name_m] is a recent fav of mine, I think it’s so cool. [name_m]Evander[/name_m], [name_u]Jasper[/name_u], [name_u]Asa[/name_u], [name_m]Edwin[/name_m]… I’ve never heard Avabelle before, what a refreshing and sweet spin on [name_f]Ava[/name_f]! There are so many gorgeous middles in there as well. Thank you so much! I will also definitely check out those links :smiley:

@Virgo22 Thanks! I really love those. [name_f]Elle[/name_f] is so sweet, and [name_f]Essie[/name_f] is new to me but I really like it!

@juliem1912 oh my gosh, beautiful suggestions. [name_u]Micah[/name_u] [name_m]Luke[/name_m] and [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] [name_f]Clover[/name_f] are my favorite. Thank you!

@AdroitArtemis Ooh, [name_m]Nilo[/name_m] is new. I like so many of these. I think this is an unpopular opinion but I really like [name_m]Rufus[/name_m]. And [name_m]Linus[/name_m]! [name_m]Linus[/name_m] is so cute. [name_m]Orin[/name_m], [name_m]Ewan[/name_m], [name_m]Otto[/name_m], [name_u]Arlo[/name_u], [name_u]Reid[/name_u], [name_u]Holden[/name_u], [name_u]Emmet[/name_u], [name_m]Lochlan[/name_m], [name_m]Fletcher[/name_m]. You really nailed my style. The girls’ names are so pretty too. [name_f]My[/name_f] favorite of them is [name_f]Araminta[/name_f], I think it’s just gorgeous. The middles are perfection, they’re all so nice. [name_f]Maisie[/name_f] and [name_f]Esther[/name_f] are probably my favorites there. And so many amazing word name suggestions, I’m going to have to really go through all of those and give them the time to appreciate them al, but I see a lot I like. Thank you so much! :grin:

@Greyblue Oh, I love these! [name_f]Juliana[/name_f] [name_u]Story[/name_u] is so lovely. I also particularly like [name_f]Hallie[/name_f] [name_f]Primrose[/name_f] and [name_f]Lydia[/name_f] [name_f]Fern[/name_f]. [name_f]Elva[/name_f] [name_f]Blossom[/name_f] is so nice! I just heard [name_f]Elva[/name_f] for the first time in the forums yesterday and I can’t stop thinking about how pretty is it. It’s like you read my mind with that suggestion, lol. [name_m]Bram[/name_m] [name_u]Atlas[/name_u] is really nice as well, and [name_m]Conrad[/name_m] [name_m]Tiger[/name_m]. [name_u]Peregrine[/name_u] and [name_m]Hawthorn[/name_m] are awesome middles. Thank you so much for these suggestions!

I definitely have a lot to work with now. I can see my user card doubling soon thanks to you guys :smile: Tonight I think I’ll have to start tinkering around with mixing and matching all of your amazing suggestions.


Some of my current favorites are Solaira and [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] (not together)

It looks like I may have accidentally made up Avabelle but it seems to fit in perfectly with the [name_f]Ava[/name_f] and belle/bella trends that I don’t know if many people would realize it’s made up more than names like [name_f]Arabella[/name_f], [name_f]Adabelle[/name_f], [name_f]Aveline[/name_f], and [name_f]Avalyn[/name_f]. [name_f]Glad[/name_f] you like it!

These are perfect! I’m so surprised that you included [name_f]Brielle[/name_f] because it’s my exception name–like I don’t think of it as fitting my style and yet for a while now I’ve really liked it.

I love [name_u]Micah[/name_u]! It’s actually one of my absolute favorite names, but I used it on a character so now I wouldn’t want to use it on a kid. [name_u]Micah[/name_u] is actually the reason I decided I needed to be proactive and set aside names for babies that I wouldn’t use in writing, so that that wouldn’t happen again. But is it exactly my style. Several commenters have suggestion names I’ve used for characters, lol. [name_f]Lavender[/name_f] is another I gave to a character.

Those combos are gorgeous too. [name_f]Bryony[/name_f] is a favorite of mine, and [name_f]Bryony[/name_f] [name_u]Echo[/name_u] sounds so cool. I also adore [name_u]Emmett[/name_u], especially with the nn [name_f]Emmie[/name_f], but it’s associated with my friend [name_f]Emma[/name_f], so I don’t know if I could see it as “mine” again :woman_shrugging:

And [name_u]Dexter[/name_u]! I just added [name_u]Dexter[/name_u] [name_m]Moss[/name_m] to my usercard a day or two ago. [name_u]Dexter[/name_u] [name_u]Frost[/name_u] is amazing, though. I like it as much. I’m also happy you included [name_f]Fae[/name_f] and [name_f]Fawn[/name_f]! I added [name_f]Araminta[/name_f] the same day I added [name_u]Dexter[/name_u]. Originally I was going to make it [name_f]Araminta[/name_f] [name_f]Fae[/name_f] because for some reason I just feel like an F middle name would sound soft and nice with it. I ended up going for [name_u]Bliss[/name_u] instead just because I have so many -ay sounding middles, but seeing you suggest [name_f]Fae[/name_f] makes me want to switch it back :thinking:

Thank you!
