[name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f], [name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f], and [name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Selene[/name_f] are all stunning and I think evoke the imagery you’re going for!

[name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Titiana[/name_f]
[name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Cressida[/name_f]
[name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Alula[/name_f]

Quick question: are you pronouncing [name_f]Selene[/name_f] as seh-LEN-ee or seh-LEE-nee or suh-LEEN?

Haven [name_f]Amberly[/name_f]
[name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Soleil[/name_f]
[name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Solange[/name_f]
[name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Aurora[/name_f]

I love both pronunciations, but (even though it isn’t correct) I’d probably go with suh-LEEN because that’s how most people are likely to read it.

Haven [name_f]Athena[/name_f], [name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f], and [name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Selene[/name_f] are all so beautiful!! In my opinion they give off the vibes you’re going for too.
I also really love [name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Persephone[/name_f], but I’m not sure it’s the warm sanctuary you were going for! Maybe [name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Seraphina[/name_f] instead?

[name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] and [name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Athena[/name_f] are my favorites! (I voted for [name_f]Athena[/name_f] btw)

Haven [name_f]Winslet[/name_f] is nice. For me, M names are quite warm and grounding. [name_m]How[/name_m] about [name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_u]Maria[/name_u] or [name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Maris[/name_f]?

Sterling is very masculine to me. [name_u]Love[/name_u] it! But very masculine.

Yeeeees! So beautiful. Thank you.

I totally agree with this. I’ll look into some M names to go with [name_u]Haven[/name_u]. [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Maris[/name_f].


[name_f]Selene[/name_f] is one of my ultimate “warm” names. I picture a bright orange sunset on a hot day somewhere on a faraway island when I hear this name. [name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Selene[/name_f] is incredible, as I absolutely love both of these names individually, but even more so together. it’s perfection. thought you could vote multiple options for some reason so my actual vote went to [name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Athena[/name_f], which is also warm, shimmering and stunning. :orange_heart:

Haven [name_f]Aurora[/name_f] is gorgeous!

One of my high school friends had a younger sister named [name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Nerissa[/name_f], and I always found that utterly magical.

I love almost all of the options you have here. I just feel more of a cool, watery, moonlit shimmer from most of them rather than something warm and enveloping.

For suggestions, I focused on longer, more magical names that feel warm, dreamy, and cozy to me, that have warm colors in my synesthesia brain, and that evoke imagery for me that is warm, sunny, firelit, or candlelit. Consider any repeats as upvotes :wink:

That’s so interesting because the watery, moonlit shimmer is usually my go-to imagery/vibe! It’s harder for me to get to the warm, dreamy, cozy thing because I so easily slip into the coolness of [name_f]Estelle[/name_f] or [name_f]Selene[/name_f].

Thank you for such a gorgeous list!

This (and [name_f]Seraphina[/name_f] which someone previously suggested) seems perfect to me because I get the image of a fiery, warm, guardian angel.

[name_u]Love[/name_u] these, very warm and shimmering!

I feel like we must experience names in a very similar way! It’s always much easier for me to gravitate towards cool, green, blue, or silvery names, or names that have a moonlit, forested, or oceanic sense about them. Warmer names are much more difficult, especially trying to find combos for them or blending them into my shortlist, which is usually full of shadowy greens.

Yes yes yes! The echo of wood-elves’ laughter, water nymphs dancing beneath the surface, silver moonlight, deep, lush forests, rolling mist, a siren’s song. :crescent_moon:
That’s why I made this post because it was hard for me to get to the warmth that I felt [name_u]Haven[/name_u] needs.

Looking at your usercard, I see why we have similar tastes :wink: I too am an INFP, enneagram 9, [name_m]Leo[/name_m] rising, earth-loving hippie, wannabe pagan & baby witch :exploding_head: I loove all your combos. [name_m]Caspian[/name_m] [name_u]Forest[/name_u], [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] [name_u]Willow[/name_u]… a dream…

Oh. [name_f]My[/name_f]. Gods. NAME TWIN!! :heart_eyes:

I’m obsessed with your combos as well. [name_f]Elowen[/name_f] [name_u]Snow[/name_u], Luthien [name_u]Dove[/name_u], [name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] [name_f]Illyria[/name_f] [name_f]Moon[/name_f] - absolutely swoonworthy!

Haven [name_f]Athena[/name_f] or [name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Winslet[/name_f] are stunning. I also thought about [name_u]Haven[/name_u] [name_f]Wisteria[/name_f].

All those combos are really great!
