Pruning My User Card

It struck me today that my user card is probably way too long! I keep wanting to add new combinations and not take any away.

Here is my current user card:
[name_f]Ida[/name_f] [name_f]Alice[/name_f] - [name_m]Simon[/name_m] [name_m]Leo[/name_m] - [name_u]Jesse[/name_u] [name_u]Jude[/name_u] - [name_u]Ira[/name_u] [name_m]John[/name_m] - [name_u]Abilene[/name_u] [name_u]Anne[/name_u] - [name_f]Tessa[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f] - [name_f]Isola[/name_f] [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] - [name_m]Gideon[/name_m] [name_u]Elias[/name_u] - [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] - [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] - [name_u]Elliot[/name_u] [name_m]Isaac[/name_m] - [name_u]Amari[/name_u] [name_u]James[/name_u] - [name_f]Aviva[/name_f] [name_f]Elaine[/name_f] - [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] [name_u]Delaney[/name_u] - [name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] [name_u]Marie[/name_u] - [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_f]Elena[/name_f] - [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f] [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] - [name_u]Levi[/name_u] [name_u]Abiah[/name_u] - [name_u]Benjamin[/name_u] [name_u]Dean[/name_u] - [name_f]Lily[/name_f] [name_f]Magdalena[/name_f] - [name_f]Catherine[/name_f] [name_f]Idalie[/name_f]- [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]- [name_f]Leah[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]- [name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f]- [name_m]Isaiah[/name_m] [name_m]Shepherd[/name_m]- [name_u]Ezra[/name_u] [name_u]Gabriel[/name_u] - [name_m]Lucas[/name_m] [name_m]Josiah[/name_m]-

Make a case! What combinations should I take off or change? Alternatively, what names do you love and want me to keep?

Thanks!

[name_f]Catherine[/name_f] [name_f]Idalie[/name_f]- [name_f]Catherine[/name_f] is beautiful but feel very overused to me.
[name_f]Leah[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]- [name_f]Leah[/name_f] feels a little dated but I love the combo

[name_m]Lucas[/name_m] [name_m]Josiah[/name_m]
[name_u]Elliot[/name_u] [name_m]Isaac[/name_m]
(I feel like all of your boy names are pretty biblical, these just don’t give me the same vibe.)

Isola [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]
[name_u]Abilene[/name_u] [name_u]Anne[/name_u]
[name_f]Aviva[/name_f] [name_f]Elaine[/name_f]
(All your other girl names are vintage classics. These just don’t strike me as that.)

All in all though, lovely user card!

My favorites from your girls list are [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] [name_u]Delaney[/name_u], [name_f]Lily[/name_f] [name_f]Magdalena[/name_f], [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f], [name_f]Leah[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f], [name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f], so I vote definitely keeping those.

And from your boys, I think [name_m]Gideon[/name_m] [name_u]Elias[/name_u], and [name_u]Amari[/name_u] [name_u]James[/name_u] are really cool! [name_m]Isaiah[/name_m] [name_m]Shepherd[/name_m], though! Wow, so sweet!! I adore it.

Thank you all for your help! After consideration, I’ve decided what I will get rid of.

Levi [name_u]Abiah[/name_u] - I love [name_u]Levi[/name_u] and quite like this combo, but don’t love [name_u]Abiah[/name_u] enough to justify it
[name_u]Elliot[/name_u] [name_m]Isaac[/name_m]- I like these names and the flow, but this combination isn’t that exciting
[name_f]Aviva[/name_f] [name_f]Elaine[/name_f]- Although I quite like [name_f]Aviva[/name_f], I don’t love [name_f]Elaine[/name_f]; I mostly used it for the flow
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] [name_u]Marie[/name_u]- I think I’ll look for a new middle

It’s funny I don’t really have this problem. I feel like my favorites are always changing. I’ll be so focused on name for a while that eventually it just seems boring.

Keep
[name_f]Ida[/name_f] [name_f]Alice[/name_f]- This is cute. [name_f]Ida[/name_f] is approachable yet unique and [name_f]Alice[/name_f] fits it perfectly
[name_u]Jesse[/name_u] [name_u]Jude[/name_u]- This is really cute! I love [name_u]Jesse[/name_u] on a boy and [name_u]Jude[/name_u] works great. Also you get the nickname JJ.
[name_u]Ira[/name_u] [name_m]John[/name_m]- A ending boys names always sound feminine to me but this one works. I think if I knew more boys with A ending names this would change. I like how classic it sounds.
[name_f]Tessa[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f]- This is nice. I’ve just never really liked the name [name_f]Tessa[/name_f] for some reason.
[name_m]Gideon[/name_m] [name_u]Elias[/name_u]- This combo is so perfect! [name_f]Di[/name_f] is a cute nickname!
[name_u]Elliot[/name_u] [name_m]Isaac[/name_m]- This is really nice. It flows really well and I like the names together. [name_u]Elliot[/name_u]'s a weird one for me, somedays I really like it and sometimes I think it sounds too soft for a guys name. Also, none of it’s spellings really look right to me.
[name_m]Simon[/name_m] [name_m]Leo[/name_m]- I just find it a little boring. Neither name is overused, but I just wish it was more exciting. I do like the classic sound though.
[name_u]Levi[/name_u] [name_u]Abiah[/name_u]- This is cool! I like [name_u]Levi[/name_u] and [name_u]Abiah[/name_u] is nice. I do prefer [name_m]Uriah[/name_m] though.
[name_u]Benjamin[/name_u] [name_u]Dean[/name_u]- I like this. It is classic and they fit perfectly. [name_m]Ben[/name_m] is one of my favorite nicknames.
[name_f]Lily[/name_f] [name_f]Magdalena[/name_f]- This is also very pretty and Classic.
[name_f]Ivy[/name_f] [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]- This is so cute! I love [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] and [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] fits perfectly.
[name_f]Leah[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]- I’m not a big fan of [name_f]Leah[/name_f] but the combo is really nice. It isn’t that exciting.
[name_f]Mary[/name_f] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f]- This also beautiful and classic
[name_m]Isaiah[/name_m] [name_m]Shepherd[/name_m]- I really like this! [name_m]Isaiah[/name_m] is such a cool name and [name_m]Shepherd[/name_m] fits perfectly. [name_f]My[/name_f] only downside is that I never know how to spell [name_m]Shepherd[/name_m] :joy:
[name_u]Ezra[/name_u] [name_u]Gabriel[/name_u]- This is really nice. [name_u]Ezra[/name_u] is the only A ending boy name that I actually like. [name_u]Gabriel[/name_u] fits perfectly.

Change
[name_u]Abilene[/name_u] [name_u]Anne[/name_u]- [name_u]Anne[/name_u] is a little repetitive of [name_u]Abilene[/name_u]. Also, I prefer [name_f]Abelia[/name_f]. You do get the nicknames [name_u]Abbie[/name_u] and [name_m]Able[/name_m] though :smiley: I would change this to something [name_f]Abelia[/name_f] [name_u]Anne[/name_u] or [name_u]Abilene[/name_u] [name_f]Alondra[/name_f].
[name_f]Penelope[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]- I like both these names they just sound weird together to me. I like [name_f]Penelope[/name_f] [name_f]Lenore[/name_f].
[name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]- This one is also just a little boring. These names just seem common to me and they don’t really compliment each other that much. I feel like [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Aviva[/name_f] or [name_f]Audrey[/name_f] [name_f]Azalea[/name_f] are more interesting.
[name_f]Aviva[/name_f] [name_f]Elaine[/name_f]- [name_f]Aviva[/name_f] is stunning I just don’t know if [name_f]Elaine[/name_f] fits with it. I think [name_f]Aviva[/name_f] [name_f]Renee[/name_f] sounds cool or even [name_f]Aviva[/name_f] [name_u]Laine[/name_u]
[name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] [name_f]Elena[/name_f]- This is cute. [name_f]Phoebe[/name_f] always sounds a little cartoonish to me for some reason but I do like this combo.
[name_f]Sylvia[/name_f] [name_f]Juliet[/name_f]- [name_f]My[/name_f] name :smiley: I really like [name_f]Sylvia[/name_f] but I don’t know if [name_f]Juliet[/name_f] fits. [name_f]My[/name_f] middle name is [name_f]Grace[/name_f] which is pretty boring. I almost prefer the [name_f]Juliette[/name_f] spelling or something completely different.

Take off
[name_f]Isola[/name_f] [name_f]Eleanor[/name_f]- I don’t really like [name_f]Isola[/name_f] that much. Also the L’s in both names kind of run together.
[name_u]Amari[/name_u] [name_u]James[/name_u]- I would use this for a girl. I think it would be a really cool name. However since I’m assuming you meant it to be masculine I think it is a little feminine. Also it makes me think of calamari :joy: Which isn’t a bad thing.
[name_f]Gemma[/name_f] [name_u]Delaney[/name_u]- I’ve never liked [name_f]Gemma[/name_f] for some reason. It just sounds too girly for me. [name_u]Delaney[/name_u] is the opposite and sounds more tomboyish. These too different connotations don’t really work together for me.
[name_f]Evangeline[/name_f] [name_u]Marie[/name_u]- Another name I just never really liked. It just never really excited me. I don’t think [name_u]Marie[/name_u] helps my opinion because it is such a common middle.
[name_f]Catharine[/name_f] [name_f]Idalie[/name_f]- It’s just a little boring. [name_f]Catharine[/name_f] is too overused in my opinion.
[name_m]Lucas[/name_m] [name_m]Josiah[/name_m]- Again it just doesn’t excite me, compared to your other names.

I just saw that you already decided what your taking off. Well, here’s my opinion anyway.
