FNs or MNs:
[name_f]Frances[/name_f]: (6/10) it’s a fresh, but classy, vintage name! [name_f]Frances[/name_f] is growing on me, but it still gives off old lady vibes without any of the romance that sometimes lives on in a name despite the end of an era.
[name_f]Georgiana[/name_f]: (8.5/10) I could be swayed higher because, frankly, it’s an underused beauty. [name_f]Do[/name_f] you watch Sanditon? That’s gotten me really into the name lately. Anyway, [name_f]Georgiana[/name_f] is rich and lustrous, but risks being pretentious big time. Nn “[name_u]Georgie[/name_u]“ is adorbs!
[name_f]Dorothea[/name_f]: (3/10) [name_m]Stuffy[/name_m] sounding and solely reserved for the retirement home! Not romantic, not lilting, and not in the least bit elegant or graceful. Although, [name_f]Thea[/name_f] is a pretty cute name instead, but still insubstantial.
[name_f]Harriet[/name_f]: (6.5/10) Great namesakes, but still too hairy for my liking. However, the nn “[name_f]Hattie[/name_f]” is very sweet.
[name_f]Adelaide[/name_f]: (7/10) Like lemonade to my ears, but Guys and Dolls is a fun reference for this name! But somewhat irksome sound. [name_f]Addie, Laidey,[/name_f] and [name_f]Della[/name_f] are charming nns.
[name_f]Claudia[/name_f]: (6/10) it’s above average since it’s not normal and dull, but it is a cold name and the “claw” sound at the beginning doesn’t help.
[name_f]Winifred[/name_f]: (6.5/10) Windswept vibe to it, and completely the opposite of [name_f]Claudia[/name_f]. It’s warm like cinnamon, but still dated for my tastes. “[name_f]Winnie[/name_f]” Is sweet, but the name is a bit weak sounding.
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f]: (9.5/10) Biased in this one, but [name_f]Josephine[/name_f] is [name_m]Peter[/name_m] Rabbit’s mother and it does sound perfect for a literary, nurturing but strong soul willing to lead. “[name_u]Jo[/name_u]” is a cool nn because of [name_m]Little[/name_m] Women. I also like “[name_u]Josie[/name_u].”
[name_f]Mabel[/name_f]: (5/10) [name_m]Even[/name_m] though it’s not overdone, I gave it an average rating because of its maple-soaked ambiance, but it’s not vibrant or fierce sounding. Could belong on a cow. Very old-timey, but not in a good way, at least not right now imo.
[name_u]Louise[/name_u]: (5/10) Meh, Louisa is so much better.
[name_f]Louisa[/name_f]: (8.5/10) Fresh, smart, and strong sounding! Only bit that sets me off is the “weez” sound in the middle.
[name_f]Pearl[/name_f]: (7.5/10) [name_u]Unique[/name_u], cute, and adventuresome. Not beautiful, but pretty.
[name_f]Eloise[/name_f] (8/10) Prefer Lousia, don’t like “weez” in the middle.
[name_f]Maude[/name_f]: (5/10) Plain and subdued sound… with a hint of charm, I’ll admit.
[name_f]Agatha[/name_f]: (2:10) Agony, no thank you. Ugly, guttural cadence.
[name_f]Alice[/name_f]: (9/10) Not my fav fn, but intriguing as a middle name
[name_u]Anne[/name_u]: (6/10) Boring, but versatile
[name_f]Prudence[/name_f]: (3/10) Prunes? Dowdy name.
[name_f]Primrose[/name_f]: (6/10) Oddly growing on me, but still sounds like a snotty, rich girl from the books I read growing up. Prefer [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] or [name_f]Rose[/name_f].
[name_f]Lavender[/name_f]: (7/10) Bit of a laundry sound, but unique and pretty.
[name_f]Felicity[/name_f]: (8.5/10) Dashing and regal! The “icity” part is cloying, though. It’s like getting candy stuck in my teeth when I say it aloud… sugary, but still, a darling name!
[name_u]Marion[/name_u]: (5/10) Eh, nothing good to say, but not terrible.
[name_f]May[/name_f]: (5/10) normal and nice
[name_f]Mae[/name_f]: (6:10) Overdone, but charming
[name_f]Posie[/name_f]: (4/10) Dog name from experience and I prefer full names.
