In Response to Rank the Names!

@saltwatertaffy: That list was my mother (Frances) and the rest of her family!


10. Aubrey  -I have never liked Aubrey. It's probably irrational of me but well, that's that. :)

9. Ellis -reads all boy to me.

8. Zoey -I always think Zoe-ee when I see Zoey why that stupid extraneous y?

7. Rayma - because I don't like the sound of it.

6. Cassandra - I like Cassie but the full Casandra feels a bit pretensious to me.

5. Allison -I prefer Alison to double L Allison but there's nothing wrong with the name itself.

4. Sara - this is my favorite spelling of Sara. I heartily dislike that extra h. I think it's sweeter this way.

3 Rachel - a perfectly lovely name.

2. Delores - I adore Dolores! sweet &A little sad even. But oh so gorgeous when you say it aloud!

1. Lydia - I love elegant Lydia. Simply gorgepus in looks and sound!


N ew List: (9 girls) Saskia, Capucine, Rupinder, Xiomara, Kathleen, India, Georgiana, Marisol, Pandora.
