Ha, this is funny–I’m thirteen, too, and I’ve had a thing for names [name]FOREVER[/name]. My friends think it’s pretty funny, actually; I have random name books lying around my house & when I got bored on vacation this summer, I forced my little brother and cousin into Name-a-Thons (pretty much just “which combo do you like better?” only there were…a lot of combos, to say the least. :D).
If I ever have a girl, I love the combo [name]Cecily[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name], so I hope it doesn’t get too popular within the next ten or twenty years. My follow-up combo would have to be…[name]Adelaide[/name] [name]Ivy[/name] [name]Philippa[/name], I think. I adore Victorian-esque names, and my brother is named [name]Philip[/name], but I would have issues with more than one [name]Philip[/name] in the family. [name]Pippa[/name] is the cutest nn, though. Is it sad that I’m already thinking about this? There are a lot more girls name that I like, but I’m not sure if there’s enough room to name them all…
For boys, I’m a bit more torn. I like [name]Edwin[/name], even though my grandmother commented that she thought it was a bit nerdy (ahh, well, in her time it probably was), and now [name]Theodore[/name], though I wonder if it would be too much of a burden. Hopefully by the time I’m even considering having kids, it will be a little more broken in here in the US. [name]Edwin[/name] happened to be one of my grandfather’s middle names, and [name]Ed[/name] still is my other grandfather’s middle name, so it would be honoring two in one with a name I love. Also, [name]James[/name], which is a plus, since it’s my dad’s middle name, and Irish names ([name]Declan[/name], [name]Lachlan[/name], [name]Callum[/name], [name]Phineas[/name]).
That’s a little summary of my naming obsession. I think it began when my little cousin was born. Her combo remains one of my favorites to this day. I was almost four and my aunt asked me if I prefered [name]Alexia[/name] or [name]Alexis[/name], and that’s how my cousin became [name]Sabina[/name] [name]Alexia[/name]. Note: If ever given the chance to let your neice help name your kid, do it. They will forever be in your debt.
Okay, just wanted to tell you that I think it’s cool that there are some other quirky kids out there, ha.
