Names for a roller skating babushka

I’ve never done an aesthetic post here before, hoping you all can help out! I’m looking for names to match this look:

Wasn’t sure what to call it but the Patricia Polacco image in the bottom left was my inspiration :joy: if you have a better name for this aesthetic please suggest!

I’m thinking about the colorful, slightly retro vibe of the movies Matilda and Waitress. Lots of checks, pattern mixing, chunky knits, overalls. Granny smith green, orange, bright blue. A girl who grew up on the Frog and Toad books, collects bugs, makes her own pottery, loves to eat pie.

Give me all your snappy, zany, clunky-cool, weird-but-it-works names!

:heart: This aesthetic. I think of all the names I’ve listed, [name_u]Alma[/name_u] is probs the one that most fits (for me). It’s literally woolly :joy: makes me think of chunky knit cardigans instantly.

Ahhh thank you all! I’m loving these suggestions. Going to take a page out of @lavenderwitch 's playbook and make a public list with all the suggested names that I think match the vibe.

@Quilliza [name_m]Kitto[/name_m] is spot on!! Also loving [name_f]Sosie[/name_f] and [name_f]Dodie[/name_f]. Plus lots of old favorites on your list :slight_smile:

@julieghoulie730 [name_f]Frieda[/name_f] is so good for this look, especially this spelling. I also really like [name_f]Katya[/name_f], [name_f]Zelda[/name_f], and [name_f]Ruth[/name_f].

@rwyant2003 I had never heard of kidcore before (can you tell I’m just barely over the cusp onto [name_f]Gen[/name_f] Z lol?) but that is such a good term for this look! Like grandma vibes meets kidcore. [name_f]Arrietty[/name_f] ( :heart: the Borrowers!) and [name_f]Estee[/name_f] are great ideas.

@Greyblue [name_u]Joni[/name_u] is inspired! [name_f]Glad[/name_f] to see it’s mentioned in multiple people’s suggestions. Also loving the similar [name_f]Jovie[/name_f] and [name_f]Saskia[/name_f]. Plus longtime faves like [name_f]Clementine[/name_f], [name_f]Zuzu[/name_f] and [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f].

@EdgeOfTheMeadow Thank you for doing combos! I’m loving [name_u]Teagan[/name_u], [name_f]Birdie[/name_f], [name_f]Paloma[/name_f], [name_f]Tiggy[/name_f] (!!) and [name_f]Bridget[/name_f]

@Lula-Rose You really really nailed it so I’m not even sure which names to spotlight. But especially loving [name_f]Edie[/name_f], [name_f]Rowena[/name_f], [name_f]Greta[/name_f], [name_f]Lotta[/name_f], [name_f]Magda[/name_f], [name_f]Maude[/name_f] and [name_f]Twyla[/name_f]. I usually prefer [name_f]Nora[/name_f] but [name_f]Norah[/name_f] works better for this look. PETRA is perfect. And [name_u]Alma[/name_u] was on my shortlist for this vibe before posting :grin:

@EJames How cute would [name_f]Claudie[/name_f] be?!

@Luminen I’m glad you love it, I do too!! [name_f]Elska[/name_f] and [name_f]Romilda[/name_f] (nn Romy?!) are speaking to me.

@Oblivious_octopus So happy someone suggested [name_f]Ramona[/name_f], that was already on my shortlist! [name_f]Tansy[/name_f] is a long-time love of mine, too. And [name_f]Mitzi[/name_f] is too cute!
