Mom from Charleston, SC. Two boys: Roland, Conrad.
No favorite names yet.
The only ones I would even remotely consider would be: Bartholomew, Crawford, Lazarus, Leopold, Sinclair, Wolfgang, Ambrosia, Delphia, Guinevere, Honora, Lucrecia, Winifred. The rest are too weird or complicated for my taste. The ones with the difficult spellling on my list I would only use for a middle name. I think it's unnecessiarily burdonsome to give a child a name that they have to repeatedly spell out and/or pronounce to people. I know it gives me anxiety not knowing how to spell or pronounce a name when I need to address them too. Choosing a name that's best for the child should far and away take presidence over what we, the parent, want. The weird and complicated names we like are better for pets not people.
Things seem pretty much consistant to me. Not a whole lot of change in the last ten or so years. I'm getting bored with them.
I'm surprised to see so many nicknames as given names, especially for the boys. For the girls I love the name Tallula. Nicknames could be: TallyTallie//Tali, Tula, Lu. Lu-Lu. Lula. Tilly. Talia. Tallah. Tullah. Tuli.
Toby is a nickname for Tobias.
I love the name Winslow. It's very uncommon and rather winsome!
