Thanks everyone this gives me lots to think about! I don’t think I will have to worry about any of these getting popular in my area so I am safe there as most of the population names their kids off the top 25 chart. You all have such kind words for my girls names! I got lots of eyebrow raises from people when I told them my choices. I have been able to do some work narrowing down though.
[name_f]Edie[/name_f]: this one is still my number one. I like the E, wish there was an L in there, kind of wondering if I would have nameing remorse with the [name_f]Edith[/name_f] Bunker association, this is my great-grandmothers name
[name_f]Ivy[/name_f]: It’s cute short and fits
[name_f]Violet[/name_f]: Matches, has the L, might be too popular
[name_f]Anora[/name_f]/[name_f]Enora[/name_f]: This is probally my #2. It is a little different in style but I am ok with that as with the nora is still has a vintage feel, if I don’t use it for a first name it has the #1 spot for a middle name as it matched my girls middle names well.
Lorien: LOTR refrence so if you know the books then it fits with the naturey feel of my other two. Moved off the first name spot for sure but a possible middle name, it’s a nod to a family member named [name_u]Laurie[/name_u]
[name_f]Flora[/name_f]: really fits with my girls
[name_f]Cora[/name_f]: kind of popular for me but I found it on a family tree and like that idea
[name_m]Silas[/name_m]: has an L in it, five letters like the other too, right now my #1, could get more popular, our last name ends in LAS might have too much ass sound to it.
[name_m]Dashiell[/name_m]: This was my name crush during my last pregnancy, I love the 1920’s feel of it that matches [name_f]Pearl[/name_f], matches my husbands name well, only wondering if it’s too much or kind of fluffy for this area (rural small town midwest)
[name_u]Arlo[/name_u]: Older but I feel that it would have the sam effect that [name_f]Willa[/name_f] had on people they picture it old but now they can’t imagin it on an older person
[name_m]Bram[/name_m]: new to my list but I do like it
[name_m]Evander[/name_m]: this one is gone I decided I don’t like it there are too many Xanders and Xiavers in my area and it sounds too much alike.
[name_m]Walden[/name_m]/[name_m]Twain[/name_m]: My middle name picks so both of these will go good there.
Also I noticed I had a Downton [name_u]Abbey[/name_u] theme oops!
