Overhaul on Taste

Hi all! I’ve posted a few topics on here, but my taste is rapidly changing! I’m just looking right now, but since the forum changed, I’ve been itching to create a user card that fits my evolving favorites. I’d love some feedback and suggestions on the changes! Moving away from preppy and formal toward romantic and sort-of [name_u]French[/name_u].

Old Favorites:
(still like some, but not digging the combos anymore)
[name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Juliette[/name_f]
[name_f]Britta[/name_f] [name_f]Tuesday[/name_f]
[name_f]Caroline[/name_f] [name_u]Skye[/name_u]
[name_f]Primrose[/name_f] [name_m]Bellamie[/name_m]
[name_f]Georgia[/name_f] [name_f]Eve[/name_f]
[name_u]Kennedy[/name_u] [name_f]Eileen[/name_f]
[name_f]Maeve[/name_f] [name_u]Kelley[/name_u]
[name_f]Scarlett[/name_f] [name_u]Mallory[/name_u]
[name_u]James[/name_u] [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m]
[name_m]Clark[/name_m] [name_u]Ellis[/name_u]
[name_u]Beau[/name_u] [name_m]Graham[/name_m]

New and in progress:

Sunday
[name_f]Astrid[/name_f]
[name_f]Astra[/name_f]
[name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]
[name_m]Henry[/name_m]
[name_u]Harry[/name_u]
[name_m]Elio[/name_m]

Honestly, I think any of your old names could fit! Both lists are quite eclectic and vary in style imo.

I agree with @Gia.berry! When my name taste started changing after I joined NB I found it helped to either combine classic and out-there names ([name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Sunday[/name_f] or [name_f]Astra[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] would be stunning) or to totally tuck away my old favorites for say, two months before going back to see if any had regained their sparkle! It also helps to totally dissolve combos for a bit and just look at individual names. Which just have that special, exciting vibe you’re looking for?

Thanks for the feedback! @Ameliaanwen I love [name_f]Florence[/name_f], [name_f]Elodie[/name_f], [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f], [name_f]Georgine[/name_f], [name_m]William[/name_m], [name_m]Atticus[/name_m], [name_m]Hugo[/name_m], and [name_m]Bastian[/name_m]. @MG1257 [name_f]Astrid[/name_f] [name_f]Juliette[/name_f], [name_m]Elio[/name_m] [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m], and [name_m]Henry[/name_m] [name_m]Clark[/name_m] are perfect! I had [name_m]Henry[/name_m] [name_m]Clark[/name_m] in my signature before and always got compliments. And then @Gia.berry and @midwinter I’m starting to see my old names in a new light now that I take them out of old combos! [name_f]Astra[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f] is such a gorgeous combo, and I’ll remember both of your advice on style mixing! :smile:
