Names Are Hard

In a stunning twist of fate, after focusing on my boy name list, I’m overflowing with boy names that I love. [name_m]Shepherd[/name_m], [name_m]Gideon[/name_m], [name_m]Milo[/name_m], [name_u]Paxton[/name_u], [name_m]Elijah[/name_m], [name_u]Emerson[/name_u], [name_m]Colter[/name_m], [name_m]Knox[/name_m], [name_u]Campbell[/name_u], [name_m]Houston[/name_m], [name_m]Bridger[/name_m], [name_m]Isaiah[/name_m], [name_m]Wyatt[/name_m], [name_u]Theo[/name_u], [name_m]Deacon[/name_m], [name_m]Drummer[/name_m], and [name_m]Tobias[/name_m] all have me swooning.

However, for girls, I’m feeling kind of stuck. [name_f]Lucy[/name_f], [name_f]Hazel[/name_f], [name_f]Stella[/name_f], and [name_f]Winnie[/name_f] are my favorites. [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] and [name_f]Cornelia[/name_f] would be at the very top of my list if I were braver, as would Glow and [name_f]Marigold[/name_f]. [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] is another close-but-no-cigar favorite. [name_u]Aspen[/name_u], [name_u]Oakley[/name_u], [name_u]Finley[/name_u], [name_u]Emery[/name_u], [name_u]Avery[/name_u], [name_m]Maddox[/name_m], [name_u]Paxton[/name_u], [name_u]Sage[/name_u], [name_u]Bellamy[/name_u], [name_f]Cricket[/name_f], and [name_u]Scout[/name_u] I also all really love for a baby girl.

What are some names like these that I might like?

Thank you all so much! This means so much to me.

@erin beth, [name_f]Edie[/name_f], [name_f]Sadie[/name_f], [name_f]Olive[/name_f], [name_f]Willa[/name_f], [name_u]Fifer[/name_u], [name_u]Hadley[/name_u], [name_f]Maisie[/name_f], and [name_u]Elliot[/name_u] are all adorable and amazing. I love [name_u]Ainsley[/name_u], too, but it sounds a little nasally when I say it out loud?

@introductions, gahh, I adore so many of those beautiful names! [name_f]Hattie[/name_f], [name_u]Eloise[/name_u], [name_u]Eden[/name_u], [name_f]Clover[/name_f], [name_f]Lark[/name_f], [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u], [name_u]Sailor[/name_u], [name_u]Fable[/name_u], [name_u]Piper[/name_u], [name_u]Rue[/name_u], and [name_f]Mavis[/name_f] are all impeccable. [name_u]Fable[/name_u] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f] was actually my favorite girl name for years upon years. I would still use it if I were braver. [name_u]Fable[/name_u] and Glow would be such a perfect sibset.

@greyblue, your suggestions are always so amazing. Thank you very much. I’m sort of obsessed with the combo [name_u]Ember[/name_u] [name_f]Susanna[/name_f], especially. I also really love [name_u]Winter[/name_u], [name_f]Betsy[/name_f], [name_u]Presley[/name_u], [name_f]Amelie[/name_f], Abeline, [name_f]Flora[/name_f], and [name_u]Dessie[/name_u], in particular. [name_f]Ada[/name_f] [name_u]Harbor[/name_u] would also be so sweet and lovely.

@em.estelle, I could so easily imagine myself with a little [name_f]Etta[/name_f], [name_f]Scarlett[/name_f], [name_f]Lula[/name_f], [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f], [name_f]Cleo[/name_f], [name_f]Louisa[/name_f], [name_f]Daisy[/name_f], [name_f]Elsie[/name_f], [name_f]Thea[/name_f], [name_f]Matilda[/name_f], [name_u]Eloise[/name_u], [name_f]Elowen[/name_f], [name_f]Georgia[/name_f], or [name_f]Cora[/name_f]. [name_f]Winslet[/name_f] is also really perfect, although, I worry that it’s a little too tied to [name_f]Kate[/name_f] [name_f]Winslet[/name_f]. I’ll have to mull over there one.

@icelandic, Oh my word, those are some amazing names. [name_f]Willa[/name_f] is amazing, and I so wish it was usable for me, but it clashes horribly with my last name. [name_f]Harlow[/name_f], [name_u]Collins[/name_u], [name_f]Celia[/name_f], [name_f]Calla[/name_f], [name_f]Starling[/name_f], [name_u]Sailor[/name_u], [name_u]Bryn[/name_u], [name_u]Tate[/name_u], [name_f]Fawn[/name_f], [name_u]Flannery[/name_u], [name_u]Harper[/name_u], [name_u]Story[/name_u], [name_u]Prairie[/name_u], [name_f]Jubilee[/name_f], and [name_f]Ireland[/name_f] are all adorable and amazing. Something like [name_u]Flannery[/name_u] [name_f]Jane[/name_f], called [name_f]Annie[/name_f] or [name_f]Lana[/name_f] or [name_f]Fairy[/name_f], would be just darling.

@-eagleeyes, you definitely get my style! [name_f]Maeve[/name_f], [name_f]Poppy[/name_f], [name_f]Alice[/name_f] (unusable to me, unfortunately!), [name_f]Maisie[/name_f], [name_f]Luna[/name_f], [name_f]Olive[/name_f], [name_f]Clara[/name_f], [name_f]Mabel[/name_f], [name_u]Harper[/name_u], [name_u]Juniper[/name_u], [name_u]Wren[/name_u], [name_f]Opal[/name_f], [name_f]Briar[/name_f], [name_f]Matilda[/name_f], [name_f]Tabitha[/name_f], [name_f]Linnea[/name_f], [name_f]Sadie[/name_f], [name_u]Hadley[/name_u], [name_f]Lark[/name_f], [name_f]Meadow[/name_f], [name_u]Piper[/name_u], [name_f]Lilac[/name_f], [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u], [name_u]Everly[/name_u], [name_f]Fern[/name_f], [name_f]Harlow[/name_f], [name_f]Clementine[/name_f], [name_f]Willow[/name_f], [name_f]Whitley[/name_f], [name_u]Paisley[/name_u], [name_f]Pru[/name_f], [name_u]Indigo[/name_u], [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f], [name_f]Maple[/name_f], [name_u]Flynn[/name_u], [name_u]Presley[/name_u], [name_u]Haven[/name_u], [name_f]Ramona[/name_f], [name_f]Winona[/name_f], [name_f]Maisy[/name_f], and [name_f]Etta[/name_f] are perfect. I’m so sorry that I just wrote down almost all of your list, but seriously, they’re perfect. And so many names I never would have thought of! [name_f]Whitley[/name_f] [name_u]Piper[/name_u] and [name_u]Paisley[/name_u] [name_f]Clara[/name_f] would be so sweet.

@billie_154, thank you so much for the kind words! I’m glad to know that I actually have a style, further than just eclectic lists. Ha! I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] [name_f]Odette[/name_f], [name_f]Ada[/name_f], [name_f]Ivy[/name_f], [name_f]Willa[/name_f], [name_u]Lennon[/name_u], [name_m]Bravery[/name_m], [name_u]River[/name_u], [name_f]Josephine[/name_f], [name_f]Jocelyn[/name_f], [name_f]Daisy[/name_f], [name_f]Primrose[/name_f], [name_f]Zelie[/name_f], [name_f]Sadie[/name_f], [name_f]Rosalie[/name_f], [name_u]Sailor[/name_u], [name_u]Ruby[/name_u], [name_f]Birdie[/name_f], [name_f]Tilly[/name_f], [name_u]Juniper[/name_u], [name_f]Aoife[/name_f], [name_u]Indigo[/name_u], [name_f]Jolie[/name_f], [name_f]Zelda[/name_f], [name_f]Pippa[/name_f], [name_f]Lilia[/name_f], [name_u]Sunny[/name_u], [name_f]Sunday[/name_f], [name_f]Coraline[/name_f], [name_f]Matilda[/name_f], [name_f]Violet[/name_f], [name_f]Etta[/name_f], Otter, and [name_f]Sparrow[/name_f].
