Would love some feedback!

I have recently discovered nameberry and I’m so excited that now I have a place to discuss names. I’ve been obsessed with names since I was a little girl and now I can get feedback from others who share my love for names.

[name]Lavender[/name] - This is sweet but I’m not sure I can imagine it on a real person!
[name]Calla[/name] - I like [name]Calla[/name], but I feel it lacks… substance.
[name]Winter[/name] - I love [name]Winter[/name]! I love the sound and the overall coolness of it!
[name]Isadora[/name] - Seems a bit clunky to me…
[name]Paloma[/name] - A bit of a weird connection, but the only thing I can think of when I hear this is Palm [name]Olive[/name] dish washing liquid! I guess I’m just not a fan of the sound.
[name]Samara[/name] - Mmm, it’s alright. Nothing special to me.
[name]Amara[/name] - I prefer it over [name]Samara[/name], but it still seems a bit lacking.
[name]Amina[/name] - This is cute. A similar one you might like is [name]Araminta[/name]!
[name]Cleo[/name] - I’ve always thought [name]Cleo[/name] was sweet :slight_smile:
[name]Alessandra[/name] - To me this name just seems a bit too over the top. Sorry :confused:
[name]Verity[/name] - I love [name]Verity[/name]! It is a fresh twist on virtue names!
[name]Viva[/name]/vita - Sorry, it once again somehow reminds me of a cleaning product.
[name]Ione[/name] - Not a fan of the sound - I just don’t find it feminine in any why.
[name]Lyra[/name] - [name]Lyra[/name] is nice, and I also like that it sounds fresh but it still doesn’t hit the top 1000!
[name]Zahra[/name] - Seems a bit harsh to me.
[name]Freya[/name] - [name]Freya[/name] is lovely! So pretty!

[name]Rafferty[/name] - Sounds odd. Like taffy or something.
[name]Wilder[/name] - I like [name]Wilder[/name]!
[name]Alaric[/name] - Mmm, a bit too… out there? Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t see this name on a little boy at all. Or a grown man for that matter. It seems like it came from medieval times.
[name]Silas[/name] - [name]Silas[/name] is very nice!
[name]Santino[/name] - Once again, I just can’t picture this on a real person.
[name]Knox[/name] - A bit too starbaby.
[name]River[/name] - Quite hippy. If you’re going for that then great, but I’m not sure I’d like to be a boy named [name]River[/name]. Maybe a mn?
[name]Ezra[/name] - Seems quite old-man-ish to me :confused:
[name]Cruz[/name] - I like [name]Cruz[/name]! Again with the starbaby but less noticeable in my opinion.
[name]Abel[/name] - See [name]Ezra[/name]
[name]Bennett[/name] - I like [name]Bennett[/name] - it sounds like a fresh twist on a few more traditional names.
[name]Benson[/name] - Still nice, but doesn’t measure up to [name]Bennett[/name] for me.
[name]Fin[/name] - I really like [name]Finnegan[/name] nn [name]Finn[/name], but [name]Fin[/name] on it’s own just seems a bit short. Also, [name]Finn[/name] is moving up fast on the charts - Glee anyone?
[name]Atticus[/name] - While I think this would be a fun mn, I’m not sure it’s ready for a little boy just yet.
[name]Eamon[/name] nn [name]Eames[/name] - NMS. I guess I just am not a fan of the sound.
[name]Jude[/name] - I really like [name]Jude[/name] - it’s on my list as well! But I sort of keep asking myself if it’s just a bit feminine?

You’ve got a great list! My favourites are [name]Winter[/name], [name]Verity[/name], [name]Freya[/name], [name]Cleo[/name], [name]Wilder[/name], [name]Silas[/name], and [name]Jude[/name]!

[name]Calla[/name] - This is my favorite flower name.
[name]Winter[/name] - I absolutely love this name.
[name]Isadora[/name] - Too cutesy for my taste.

[name]Amina[/name] - I prefer [name]Amara[/name].
[name]Cleo[/name] - I adore this. So sweet.
[name]Alessandra[/name] - Definitely my favorite [name]Al[/name]- name for a girl.
[name]Verity[/name] - This one is growing on me.
[name]Viva[/name]/vita - This makes me think of the local bus system.
[name]Ione[/name] - Not a huge fan.
[name]Lyra[/name] - This is beautiful and I love it. Pretty with some spunk.
[name]Zahra[/name] - It’s very pretty but not my style.
[name]Freya[/name] - This one is just okay for me.

[name]Rafferty[/name] - I’d really like this one on someone else’s child.
[name]Wilder[/name] - Thisis my #1 middle choice.
[name]Alaric[/name] - This one is not my style.
[name]Silas[/name] - I really like this name.

[name]River[/name] - [name]Love[/name] it.
[name]Ezra[/name] - Really, really like it.
[name]Cruz[/name] - Not a fan.
[name]Abel[/name] - Not my style.
[name]Bennett[/name] - I lik this one.
[name]Benson[/name] - I don’t like this one.
[name]Fin[/name] - I prefer [name]Finn[/name]. I love this.
[name]Atticus[/name] - I’m not a fan.
[name]Eamon[/name] nn [name]Eames[/name] - I love this.
[name]Jude[/name] - I don’t quite get this one.

I love these:

I like these:
[name]Amara[/name]/[name]Amina[/name]- They’re nice enough, but they blend in with a lot of names that sound like them, such as [name]Alicia[/name], [name]Aleah[/name], [name]Amaya[/name], etc. None of the names are that popular on their own, but there are so many of them that they don’t sound different from each other.
[name]Viva[/name]/vita- I prefer [name]Vita[/name] to [name]Viva[/name]- [name]Viva[/name] reminds me of paper towels.
[name]Zahra[/name]- I prefer the [name]Zara[/name] spelling

I don’t care for these:
[name]Lavender[/name]/[name]Winter[/name]- too wordy for me
[name]Ione[/name]- I think pronunciation/spelling would be an absolute nightmare, and it’s not that pretty to me. I actually like the look of it on paper more than the sound.

I love these:
[name]Eamon[/name] nn [name]Eames[/name]

I like these:
[name]Rafferty[/name] - though I prefer [name]Rafael[/name]/[name]Raphael[/name]
[name]Abel[/name]- I love [name]Abe[/name], but I prefer [name]Abram[/name].
[name]Bennett[/name] /[name]Benson[/name]- I like them both, but I prefer [name]Benjamin[/name] to either. They seem a little too last-namey, and a lot trendier than [name]Benjamin[/name].
[name]Fin[/name]- I prefer it spelled [name]Finn[/name], and I like [name]Flynn[/name] better than both [name]Fin[/name] and [name]Finn[/name].

I don’t like these:
[name]Wilder[/name]- These just seems like it’s tempting fate. I could imagine a totally out of control, difficult child named [name]Wilder[/name].
[name]Silas[/name]- A perfectly good name, but for some reason, I’ve never really cared for it.
[name]Knox[/name]- too Brangelina for me.
[name]River[/name]- Like [name]Lavender[/name] and [name]Winter[/name], too wordy for me.
[name]Atticus[/name]- I used to think this was nice enough, but now I’m a bit tired of it. I also think it’s a tad pretentious- “It’s [name]Atticus[/name], as in [name]Atticus[/name] [name]Finch[/name]” makes me cringe a little bit.
