A Nymbler Name Game

Ok, I didn't make this up but I don't remember where it came from. 

We are going to collectively name a sib set of 12 using Nymbler.

I'll start with a name, the next person types it in to Nymbler and chooses a sibling name from the suggestions.

The 3rd person has to type in the two previous names and choose a name from the suggestions. 

 

Ready? Your starting name is...

 

Clay.

This family could be characters in one of Joanne Fluke's murder mysteries. Fluke's characters are all supposedly in the 30s and early 40s and have names like these. She's stuck in a time warp.

This set is right up my alley. Names that are uncommon but 'real' and fairly recognisable with no gender confusion and kr8ivity!

Imogen (g), Tarquin (b), Penelope (g), and Crispin (b)

Interesting choices for this one - Nymbler must not have enough data on it to do much more than "long, unusual (or at least unusually spelled!) and begins with 'T'"!  I was tempted by Turkoyse (g), but instead went with

Tuppence (g) and Thornley (b)

433
September 8, 2012 6:52 AM

You're right, Tana. Among the few non-'T' names was Christopher, which just didn't seem right. So I chose another 'T' name.

 

Tuppence (g), Thornley (b), and Teasdale (b)

434

(Why not just embrace it, right?)

Suddenly it is suggesting a lot more 'normal' (and non-T) names even though by now I think it's obvious that's not what we're going for!

Tuppence (g), Thornley (b), Teasdale (b), Templeton (b), Trinity (g) and Taneisha (g)

Tuppence (g), Thornley (b), Teasdale (b), Templeton (b), Trinity (g), Taneisha (g), and

Thomasina (g)   (I love this name, but can't get past the Disney movie!)

Tuppence (g), Thornley (b), Teasdale (b), Templeton (b), Trinity (g), Taneisha (g), Thomasina (g), and

Trevelyan (b)

This hasn't been added to in a bit, but I'm enjoying long, unusual T-name family.  I think Trinity is the reason Nymbler is giving us a more normal selection of names.

Wow, that's quite a set of names!

443
September 8, 2012 6:45 PM

Yay, thanks for embracing it, guys! I saw Tuppence in the birth announcements in the newspaper a couple of years ago and thought it was very sweet. Also once knew a cat with the name.

New set:

Griffin (b)

445
By EVie
October 1, 2012 5:16 PM

Ooh, interesting choice. I can see several different directions in which this could be taken. I'm going to go with... 

Griffin (b) and Rhiannon (g)

446
October 1, 2012 5:42 PM

Griffin (b), Rhiannon (g), and

Quentin (b)

 

(Love Griffin, but it's spelled wrong! Gryphon is my hubby.) ;-)

447
By Tana
October 1, 2012 7:20 PM

Griffin (b), Rhiannon (g), Quentin (b), and

Tristan (b)

(I didn't know before that Griffin had any other possible derivation other than the mythological animal, but Behind the Name says its also a latinization of a Welsh name.  I'll have to readjust my perceptions of it a bit!)

448
October 1, 2012 8:44 PM

I vacillated between the two spellings but opted for this one because I thought that it left the name open to wider interpretation :D

449
October 1, 2012 11:28 PM

Oh, you are absolutely correct, I was just teasing. :-)

450
October 1, 2012 11:46 PM

I knew that you were. I just wanted to tell YOU that I thought of your husband when selecting the name :D
