My 2009-early 2010 Top 5 list VS. My current Top 19.

[i][name]Hi[/name] all, I was just cleaning up my desk and found my top 5 list from 2009 and early 2010! I was surprised at how my taste has changed although I still like all of the names on my 2009/2010 list, there’s no combination I still love and only a couple of individual names I still love.

I think your taste has changed quite a lot. You seem to like more unusual names now. I like “[name]Floyd[/name] [name]Greyson[/name]” and “[name]Sage[/name] [name]Rosalind[/name]” from your 2009/2010 list, but overall I prefer your newer lists.

[name]Love[/name]:
[name]Violet[/name] [name]Morgana[/name] [name]Skye[/name]
[name]Drusilla[/name] [name]Persephone[/name] [name]May[/name]
[name]Hunter[/name] [name]Charles[/name] [name]Nathaniel[/name]
[name]Theodore[/name] [name]Archer[/name] [name]Cole[/name]
Never been a fan of the “two middle names” scenario but your choices flow really well. I like how you have several different styles in one combo but it still looks and sounds great!

My taste in names has changed a lot, too. In 2009/2010, I liked the names [name]Kiara[/name], [name]Skylar[/name] (for a girl - AUGH!), [name]Chantal[/name], [name]Essence[/name] (AAAUGH!), [name]Nicole[/name] and [name]Marlee[/name] (AAAAAAAUGHH - kick me for ever thinking that spelling looked better than [name]Marley[/name]), but now they’re completely NMS! For me, it’s probably a maturity thing. Now I like the names in my signature.

Isn’t a “dharma” the thing that each separate Hindu caste does as a religious duty (i.e. Brahmins speak for the community, Kshatriyas defend community and so on)? Where did you stumble on that as a name?

It’s amazing to see how your taste is evolved, whenever I look at my old lists I’m always a bit surprised! I much prefer your current list to your old one.
