In Response to Invent a name!

(fun story - my Aunt and Uncle did this for real; they named their son Davin. I don't know how they feel about it. I predict in the future people will usually just think they heard wrong and call him David. They considered using "Vinnie" as a nick name, but it never stuck)

In Response to Love, Like, Lose girls

Love: Victoria, Ines, Ariadne (those last two are ones I never would have though of on my own, but seeing them on the list, I do like them quite a bit)

Like: Caroline, Susanna, Carly

Lose: Malika, Thalia, Tilda (all for the same reason - far too unusual, but in my opinion without the pleasing impression I got from Ines and Ariadne)

New list:

Victoria, Ines, Ariadne, Caroline, Susanna, Carly, Maggie, Josephine, Raine

In Response to Love Like Lose Boys

Love: Garrett, Isaac, Reece

Like: Hayes, Darrien, Aaron

Lose: Sol (way too out there, no pun intended) Malcolm (if he's not a perpetually frustrated tv character, then he's a perpetually frustrated old man) and Wylie (good for a character in a Western, but not usually for a real person. You run the risk of people thinking your name is Riley and you just talk with a lisp)

New list: Garrett, Isaac, Reece, Hayes, Darrien, Aaron, Milo, John, Mitchell


P.S. The captcha for this post was "EAt eM" which I thought was hilarious and hope you all enjoy

The most important thing for me is also usually where it falls on the popularity scale. I'm a Jessica, born at the height of the Jessica boost, and there's little name-wise that's as aggravating as having to share your name with four other people in the same classroom. But only the other hand, I don't want a name to be completely unheard of, or confusing in any way. I find for me the sweet spot tends to be no more popular than about the 60 or 70 ranking, and no less popular than the 300s. One notable exception is Cedar. I LOVE the idea of using that for a girl's name, but I've never heard of it before.

I also agree that I avoid names that will stand out as being a particular age - either because they only had one decade of popularity, or because they just sound like old people or kids' names. I like Charlie, because I can picture a Charlie as an adorable pre-schooler, a likeable teen, a hard-working adult, AND a grumpy old man.

Outside of popularity and time, the only consistent rule I can think of is that I don't want a name to be too prissy. I'm not a fan of this 4-syllable, porcelain doll name trend - the Arabellas and Elianas. And I don't think alternative spellings accomplish much other than unecessary confusion.
