Whimsical Name?

I like names that have a sort of feel good, warm and cozy, slightly quaint, whimsical, almost fairytale feeling to them, like they belong in a classic children’s story. There’s a book that’s quite a good example of this, actually. A children’s book, perhaps you have read it? It’s entitled The Penderwicks (a friend encouraged me to read it- i believe it to be quite popular). There are four daughters in the book, called [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f], [name_u]Skye[/name_u], [name_f]Jane[/name_f], and Batty, which is short for [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]. The names are comfortable, familiar, but also slightly timeless. When I hear them, I think northeastern beaches and sea and hot chocolate and big sweaters and blankets and laughter and simplicity (i do hope im making sense here). Some names that I’ve been considering to fit under this category are: [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] (but i’d call her [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f], not Batty), [name_f]Snow[/name_f] (I’m not sure if I’d ever use it, but it has the nice, quaint feel I’m looking for), [name_f]Posy[/name_f], and [name_f]Ginny[/name_f]. If you can think of any others, it’s much appreciated. I’m just trying to start another/expand my list of possibilities. Much thanks!

Best of luck! I hope I’ve given you some ideas of what you’re looking for.



I love that book! I just wanted to say that, haha. I totally agree with your description of the names and the vibes they give off. So lovely!
