Names that have grown on you

Names that you used to dislike but have since grown on you?

For me it was [name_u]George[/name_u]. I still don’t think I would use it, but I like it a lot more than I once did.

Twila and [name_u]Sunny[/name_u]! They’re not my usual style (whatever that is), but I love how lyrical and bright they are.

Helen, [name_f]Doris[/name_f], [name_f]Ellen[/name_f], [name_f]Fern[/name_f], [name_f]Zadie[/name_f], [name_f]Maxine[/name_f], [name_f]Pandora[/name_f], [name_f]Remember[/name_f], [name_f]Zinnia[/name_f], and [name_f]Mittie[/name_f].

Ronan (:smiling_face_with_three_hearts:) + [name_u]Florian[/name_u] (:smiling_face_with_three_hearts:) + [name_m]Atticus[/name_m] + [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] + [name_f]Avonlea[/name_f] are a few I can think off of the top of my head.

I like [name_f]Helen[/name_f] and [name_f]Maxine[/name_f]! [name_f]Maxine[/name_f] is actually a family name.

The first to come to mind are [name_f]Miriam[/name_f] and [name_f]Helena[/name_f]! Also [name_u]Antonia[/name_u], [name_m]Ignatius[/name_m], [name_m]Alastair[/name_m] and [name_u]Maverick[/name_u] (for a girl). There’s a ton I’m forgetting right now :sweat_smile:

Emma is one. I used to dislike it so much. It’s on my list now! Also [name_f]Helena[/name_f].

Helen, [name_f]Helene[/name_f], [name_f]Helena[/name_f]…
There’s just something about [name_f]Helen[/name_f] and it’s various iterations.

Definitely [name_m]Bram[/name_m]! Also [name_f]Annie[/name_f], [name_f]Sosie[/name_f] and [name_f]Elsbeth[/name_f].

Kit! Also [name_u]George[/name_u], [name_m]Rafferty[/name_m], [name_f]Ruth[/name_f], [name_f]Sunday[/name_f], and probably a bunch more that I’ve forgotten right now :sweat_smile:

Most of my favourites now are names I would have once disliked! Especially [name_f]Maxine[/name_f] and [name_f]Zelda[/name_f]!

Spurgeon. When the Seewalds chose it, I thought they’d made a truly unfortunate choice. However, I’ve grown to absolutely adore it.

August and [name_f]Calliope[/name_f] are 2 off the top of my head (totally blaming nameberry influence for those :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:)
Also [name_m]Finnegan[/name_m], [name_f]Tallulah[/name_f], [name_f]Imogen[/name_f], [name_f]Cordelia[/name_f] and probably a few I’m forgetting

Emmeline. I blame NB.

I can’t believe I’m saying this but…[name_u]Sawyer[/name_u]. I used to despise [name_u]Sawyer[/name_u] and for some reason it’s growing on me like a fungus.

I’m sure there are plenty, but I love [name_f]Georgia[/name_f], [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], and [name_u]Laurence[/name_u] now, all of which I used to dislike.

A lot of little old lady names have grown on me over the years, these days I’m a big fan of [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f], [name_f]Winifred[/name_f], and (most recently) [name_f]Frances[/name_f], all of which seemed outrageously outdated to me before!

Banks/Banksia/Banksii on a girl.
