When I was around 3 I was in love the name [name_f]Christina[/name_f] :grin: that is the first one I remember and then [name_f]Felicity[/name_f] and [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] and I’ve loved [name_f]Anna[/name_f] for as long as I remember

It was [name_f]Emily[/name_f] for me, after [name_f]Sara[/name_f] [name_m]Crewe[/name_m]’s doll in The [name_m]Little[/name_m] [name_f]Princess[/name_f]… named my own doll [name_f]Emily[/name_f] too, haha. I would have been around 6 or 7!

The first name I fell in love with was [name_u]Willow[/name_u]! I named my stuffed animal [name_u]Willow[/name_u] when I was 5.

Isabella! According to SSA data from the last decade, I wasn’t the only one! :joy:

@Greyblue I’m impressed. I think I only had one doll that didn’t have a name when I got it. I wish I could remember what it was. The only one I can remember was a Build-a-[name_m]Bear[/name_m] bear named Old [name_f]Glory[/name_f].


I loved the name [name_f]Amber[/name_f] when I was in grade school-high school. Now, I’m 36 & just lukewarm on it.

Lydia! When playing house or not wanting to tell people my real name I always used [name_f]Lydia[/name_f]. Years later my best friend named her daughter [name_f]Lydia[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f] :heart:

I think it was [name_f]Mia[/name_f] or [name_f]Emma[/name_f]!

When I was younger I had imaginary friends/characters named [name_f]Anna[/name_f], [name_f]Victoria[/name_f], [name_m]Jack[/name_m], [name_f]Beth[/name_f], [name_u]Ashley[/name_u], and [name_f]Bethany[/name_f]. Another favorite was [name_u]Nikki[/name_u].

Amy! It was my ultimate favourite for years and years.

I was obsessed by [name_f]Angeline[/name_f]. when I was about 6 or 7. I was teased unmercifully by my mother because I like it. It was just too fancy. sadly, it never made its way to my daughters.

My first was [name_f]Beth[/name_f]
then is was [name_f]Gen[/name_f] (short for [name_f]Genevieve[/name_f] which is my cousins name),
it was a tiny doll I called [name_u]Baby[/name_u] [name_f]Gen[/name_f].
then its was [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] .
and now for the longest time it has been [name_f]Alice[/name_f] or [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] ( [name_f]Alice[/name_f] is my Great Grandmother never got to meet her)

Annabelle and [name_u]Chelsea[/name_u]. [name_f]My[/name_f] dad used to call me [name_f]Annabelle[/name_f], and [name_u]Chelsea[/name_u] was a variation of [name_u]Kelsey[/name_u], which I also liked. Still love both these names, and [name_u]Chelsea[/name_u] carries more meaning for me now.

My first love was [name_f]May[/name_f], closely followed by [name_u]Eden[/name_u], [name_f]Clara[/name_f] and [name_f]Marnie[/name_f]. Although none of these are on my faves list any more, I do see them in my style still - particularly in [name_f]Edie[/name_f], [name_u]Camille[/name_u], and [name_f]Marigold[/name_f]. I feel like my style has grown but my tastes have always had a common thread.

I don’t know if it was first, but the name that’s been top of my list for the longest time is [name_f]Lilia[/name_f]. I think it rolls off the tongue nicely and can change with age. A little girl can be [name_f]Lily[/name_f], a teenager [name_f]Lil[/name_f]/Lia, and an adult [name_f]Lilia[/name_f].
