'Pick of the Day' names...

I haven’t seen a thread yet discussing the opinions of the pick of the day. And everytime I see ‘THEE PICK’ I wonder what everyone else thinks of them. So I figured I’d try to start a ‘pick of the day’ thread.
Oh, but I didn’t know if they should all go on one thread, or if each name should get it’s own thread.

Today’s name is [name]Ellery[/name].

I think it sounds too much like Elderly. I don’t care for it.

I think it’s ok but it sounds like a girls name to me, and then it would get mixed with all the other Ellies, seems to me.

I’m right there with you…[name]Ellery[/name] is not my cup of tea. It is very androgenous, and I cannot see it on a real boy or a girl. It conjures up images of an emaciated male fashion model in skinny jeans and a scarf.

I hope I’m not offending anyone - my brain creates pictures of what names sound like to me!

I love it! It sounds so friendly. But I definitely think of it more as a middle name where it could add so much flair to something classic. It’s potentially too unisex for me otherwise. Also, the association with [name]Ellery[/name] [name]Queen[/name] is a nice one for me.

[name]George[/name] [name]Ellery[/name]
[name]James[/name] [name]Ellery[/name]

Rhymes with celery.

It’s the kind of name that seems “too easy.” I don’t hate it. I think it’s for a girl, not a boy (anymore). I like [name]Valerie[/name], which seems far more substantial. [name]Ellery[/name] is like for people who like [name]Ellie[/name] but it’s too short, so they fashion it up into a real name. [name]Ellery[/name] seems like it has also some upper-crust-ness about it, but it’s like [name]Brittany[/name], when [name]Brittany[/name] used to be a rare and upscale choice. I don’t think it’s going to hang on to its classiness any better. Then again, I mentioned [name]Valerie[/name] - and I don’t think the image of [name]Valerie[/name] was very good by the end of its day.

I knew a girl growing up with this name. didnt love it or hate it. since my name is similar ([name]Hilary[/name]) i just think of [name]Ellery[/name] as a less awesome wanna-be of [name]Hilary[/name]. but I am biased :slight_smile:

Everyime I see [name]Ellery[/name] I think of the word Celery

I dislike ellery. I hear Elderly Cellery. Lol.it seems mean to give that to a child!


[name]Just[/name] not my style - at all.

^ I prefer [name]Beatrix[/name].
It has a little more kick and reminds me of beatrix potter

I love both [name]Beatrice[/name] and [name]Beatrix[/name]. [name]Just[/name] saying the name makes me happy. [name]Beatrice[/name] is a little bit more of a lady and [name]Beatrix[/name] is a little more spunky, but they’re both marvelous.


It’s a nice name, but will always remind me of [name]Hudson[/name] [name]Bay[/name].

I’ve considered [name]Hudson[/name] because when my grandma was young her family moved from New [name]York[/name] to [name]California[/name] driving an old [name]Hudson[/name]. I think that would be a neat name story. Plus I like boys names that start with H. I’m not entirely convinced that it’s a great name, though. What does everyone else think?

Ohhh! I forgot about the car! That’s a good idea to use the [name]Hudson[/name] in honor of your grandmother and her family.

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.


[name]Way[/name] too many negative connotations with this name. The first thing that come to mind - Atari.

Hate [name]Ellery[/name], sounds like Celery. I love [name]Beatrice[/name] though, but I wouldn’t use it.

[name]Atara[/name] is kind of pretty but yeah, reminds me of Atari.

Oh, I’ve joined a little late… Catch-up time.

[name]Ellery[/name] seems like an almost name to me. It has the makings of a proper name but just isn’t there yet, I feel like it’s incomplete. Also it reminds me of celery instantly.

[name]Beatrice[/name] I [name]LOVE[/name]. It’s so sweet and proper and conjures up the image of a very pretty little girl living back in time to me. I also love the connection to [name]Dante[/name].

[name]Hudson[/name] is nice. I like [name]Hudson[/name] but I’m not overly fond of it. It feels very young to me and cool but I don’t see it aging too well. Also it reminds me of the river.

[name]Atara[/name] I’m definitely not a fan of. It just sounds wrong to me.

Looking forward to tomorrow’s!

  • [name]Charlie[/name]

[name]Ellery[/name]: I don’t like it; it sounds like Celery and is a surname.

[name]Beatrice[/name]: [name]Beatrice[/name] is growing on me. It’s a nice name. I actually prefer it to [name]Beatrix[/name], and I also like [name]Beatrisa[/name]

[name]Hudson[/name]: Not really a fan… it’s a surname, but one of the least offensive ones out there.

[name]Atara[/name]: It’s interesting… it has an okay sound, but seems more like a video game character than a name.
