So here’s the thing. We’re trying to conceive. You know all those names that get wrinkled noses and “That’s quite… pretentious?” Apparently, that’s my style. And my husband’s style, as well, which is sort of happy making. But I would like to lengthen our list.
So far we have:
[name]Lysander[/name] - husband likes this a lot.
[name]Peregrine[/name] - I love this one but husband doesn’t so I don’t want to fixate to the exclusion of all else.
[name]Nathanael[/name] / [name]Nathaniel[/name] - Husband dislikes this one, I don’t know why.
[name]Alasdair[/name] - I like it a lot, but my brother is [name]Alexander[/name] would that be weird?
And if you’re naming a boy something like that, what do you name his sister(s)?
[name]Marie[/name] - Proper, vaguely out of style, but I don’t know if it even belongs here. It seems too sweet for that.
[name]Minerva[/name] - This one belongs here! But I love it.
[name]Rosamund[/name] - Pretentious or just old fashioned? I would love some R names or I names for this list though.
I’m drawing a blank. Help me! Suggestions for this list gratefully received.
