After years of trying, I am finally expecting. For years my husband and I have loved the name “Maberly” for a girl, after a small village where we used to hike. “Maeby” on Arrested Development made us love it even more. Now that I’m finally pregnant I’m starting to get cold feet about the name as I’m worried people will thinks its inappropriate/silly for a little girl, given the new fad of naming kids after places and seeing as I can’t find one other instances of it being used as a first name. My husband still thinks it’s great. I’m already not a big fan of names with spelling quirks ([name]Londyn[/name] vs [name]London[/name] was one I saw on Facebook recently and immediately hated).
I would likely pair it with “[name]Jane[/name]” (my grandmother’s name) and our last name is [name]Finley[/name].
I’ve considered [name]Mabel[/name] and [name]Maeve[/name], but it doesn’t have the same meaning to us. What do you think: cute and unique, or just silly and yuppy-ish?
