[name]Paisley[/name] - I actually like this a lot… my mom made me a pair of [name]Paisley[/name] pajamas one [name]Christmas[/name], so it makes me think of that, haha. I have heard a lot of people say that it’s really trendy and won’t age well, though, so I probably wouldn’t use it personally. I do think it’s really cute, though, and [name]Bellamy[/name] and [name]Paisley[/name] work really well together imo.
[name]Kimberly[/name] - wow, really? I didn’t expect to see this on your list for some reason. It feels really dated to me, but that may be because the only [name]Kimberly[/name] I know is almost my mom’s age.
[name]Lavinia[/name] - I just started reading The Hunger Games so the association is still lost on me. It seems to be garnering more and more attention but I prefer the similar-sounding [name]Olivia[/name]. [name]Lavinia[/name] still feels quite old-fashioned for me. For some reason it reminds me of my great-grandma’s name, Lavantia [name]Elmira[/name] (luh-[name]VAN[/name]-chuh el-MY-rah). That always sounded like the epitome of old-lady to me, haha. I do like [name]Lavinia[/name] a lot more, though…
[name]Rosa[/name] - nope, sorry. I just don’t like the [name]Rose[/name] names! I do like [name]Rosalie[/name] a lot, thouh.
[name]Bethany[/name] - so cute! I’ve heard it’s dated but I don’t see it. I knew two Bethanys growing up–one was in my high school class and the other was my best friend’s baby sister. She was so cute–shy, a bit bookish, sweet, an adorable little charmer smile. I used to love [name]Bethany[/name] because of her, and I still like it a lot. [name]Bethany[/name] is very sweet and still completely usable, imo!
[name]Bethany[/name] and [name]Paisley[/name] are my favorites!
