About Me

I always thought I was the only person who had an obsession with names. They are a huge part of how a person shapes their opinion of themselves and largely impact one's personality. Before I had children I would make lists of what I wanted to name my child. You can imagine my excitement, and anxiety, when I found I would be given the responsibility of choosing a name for another human being, their very identity and image. My husband and I love the name we selected.

In Response to Odd one out

I'm related to triplets named Normandie, Timorie, and Derek. Not that Derek is super common, but most people have never heard Timorie and Normandie isn't often used as a given name.

I know a little boy named Hunter Pierce. When I pointed it out to his sister she said she'd never noticed. O.o

In Response to Same Name Twice

My brother and I are Nathan and Natasha. Not exactly the same, but pretty similar. My mom says she didn't realize until a friend pointed it out. O.o

No joke, there was a girl named Taylor Taylor at my high school. I also knew sisters named Desiree Nicole and Nicolette whose parents also didn't realize.

Sadly, the only name my husband doesn't hate is Jude, but he's not too crazy about it either. He likes Jack and Ellie. Bleh.

I also got "hipster namer", which applies because my daughter's name is classic, but not even in the top 1,000. I was NOT going to give her anything in the top 100, despite my husband's love for names like Ellie and Lily. Oh well. He likes her name now and I think it's lovely and fits her perfectly.


For a boy, William Matthew because William is a strong, classic name that I've always liked and Matthew would be after my husband.

Charlotte Ava for a girl just because all of the other top names bore me.
