I don’t really like the sound of [name]Beatrice[/name] (I guess yesterday?). I don’t have a very good reason, it’s just not for me. Maybe I think of waitress, or being beaten. It seems awkward and trying too hard. I don’t hate it.
[name]Hudson[/name] - I grew up in NY, near the [name]Hudson[/name] [name]River[/name], “mid-[name]Hudson[/name] [name]Valley[/name]” region, they call it… I think it’s so scenic, and wanted to move to a small town called [name]Hudson[/name]. I have very romantic feelings for the area I can’t describe - but I don’t think [name]Hudson[/name] really conveys that in spirit for me. It would be perfect except for how it sounds, Hud-sun. I would use it in the middle. I can’t imagine calling a little boy or a man, [name]Hudson[/name]. To me, it is like Wappingers or Poughkeepsie or Rhinebeck - kind of hard to picture on a person. I might be more inclined to use the name of the town where I grew up - some towns have nicer names, like [name]Tivoli[/name], or [name]Kingston[/name], or [name]Garrison[/name]. I also think my soft spot for the name [name]River[/name] comes from the area. [name]Hudson[/name] would make that more specific, but I just can’t feel that as a name I could call someone.
