Names and physical appearance
I'm expecting a girl and we've narrowed down to some favorites, with the leading contenders being Josephine (nn Jo but probably introduce using full name) or Jane (nn Janie/Janey). Of course, there are some differences in terms of how long/short and ornate/plain these names are, but I also keep coming back to what she'll look like.
Based on her parents and siblings, I pretty much know she'll be tall and skinny, and Caucasian. She'll also probably have either red/strawberry blonde hair, or dark brown hair. Between Josephine and Jane, I'm feeling like the hair color she comes out with may sway me, because in my mind, these names each "look" like one or the other.
Thoughts? Do you think it matters if a person "looks" like their name? Do Josephine or Jane apply to a dark-haired or light-haired person for you, as they do for me?
