In Response to Rank the Names!

I love Mara!! This was a few years ago, so I don’t remember the rationale for all of his vetoes, but I do remember a few memorable ones (Paloma “sounded like a medical condition“ and Cora “a bunch of random vowels and consonents). Adrienne got the boot because of Rocky. He is decidedly not a name enthusiast , and the name we eventually arrived on I love, though it is very popular. The popularity was actually my only concern, and though it wasnt top 10 when we did the naming, it is now and I still love it (though perhaps brave to admit so on this site?). We went with Amelia. 

 

12. Nike- I would not want to grow up with people shouting “just do it” at me.

11. Thisbe - not sure how to pronounce, does it rhyme with frisbee?

10. Xanthe- I like how it looks but I’m not sure how to pronounce it.

9. Daphne- a little bit caricatured

8. Evadne- Like the look but not sure on pronunciation.

7. Ione- I prefer Iona but this is nice.

6. Phoebe- quirky and cute 

5. Zoe- snappy and sweet

4. Penelope- yes this was on my list and I marked three higher! That’s only because there was no way my husband would have sprung for some of these but I think they are lovely!

3. Persephone- Classicly beautiful 

2. Ariadne- I think this was a baby’s name on Judging Amy and I’ve loved it ever since.

1- Calliope- love the sound and look!

10 names to mark time (gender mix): January, Winter, Summer, Autumn, June, August, April, May, Sunrise, October

In Response to Rank the Names!

13. Ginger- slam your body down and zig a zig ah! 

12. Lola- whatever she wants, she gets 

11. Bella- I really dislike the Twilight series.

10. Daisy- duck.

9. Bailey- nice sound, I just know a very annoying dog with this name.

8. Maggie- A nice name but there’s a Rod Stewart (I think) song that I can’t disassociate from it.

7. Abby- a sweet nickname

6. Molly- a nice name kind of ruined for me by drug reference 

5. Chloe- Cool and never quite common 

4. Sophie- A little British flair

3. Lucy- I love this, particularly as a nickname for Lucia

2. Luna- simple and beautiful 

1. Willow- Loved It since the first time I heard of Willow Smith


11 names my husband vetoed when we were naming: Violet, Adelaide, Ivy, Paloma, Mara, Cora, Celeste, June, Corinne, Penelope, Adrienne
