I love that LavenderLullabies ^ used [name_u]Shiloh[/name_u] in her favorite names list. I love the name [name_u]Jensen[/name_u] for a little girl. I’ve never met a [name_u]Jensen[/name_u] and can’t convince anyone else to like it ~ even a little!
I love that people are more accepting of, and willing to usenames, that are a bit unusual. I love [name_f]Magnolia[/name_f] and love that is has so many nn possibilities - [name_f]Azalea[/name_f], too.
I dislike it that I thought I found a unique name for my son, [name_m]Jacob[/name_m] (to go with our super common last name), at the same time others “discovered” it. Yet, I dislike it that it fell from the number one spot.
I dislike the name [name_f]Penelope[/name_f], too, and [name_f]Clara[/name_f]. (I love [name_f]Claire[/name_f], though.) I just have negative associations for those names. I dislike it when little girls have first and middle names that are both masculine.
I don’t see the appeal of [name_m]Archer[/name_m], [name_m]Asher[/name_m], [name_m]Archie[/name_m], and [name_m]Arthur[/name_m]. I learned to really like [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], but still dislike [name_f]Olive[/name_f].
I love [name_u]McKinley[/name_u]/McKinli for a girl, but hate what my husband said that boys would say about a girl with that name (mount). I dislike it when people complicate names that end in “lee” with “leigh” - but don’t mind it when “y” endings are changed to “i”. I dislike spellings that seem like mistakes or, I hate to say, “uneducated.”
I love it that we can exchange ideas about names that we love and really dislike here without hurt feelings. So what if others don’t love [name_u]Jensen[/name_u], [name_m]Jacob[/name_m], and [name_u]Shiloh[/name_u] ~ I do!!
