Frances

I’ve been thinking about sweet Frances as a first name lately. A teensy bit afraid to but if Mama wants to come back and haunt me for it, well, I’ll welcome it! ūüėĬ†¬†

 

Yes, I’d call her Francie, just like Mom.¬† I went digging for combos yesterday and came up with a good handful (not that I’m done digging by any means) but here’s what I’ve got preliminarily:

Frances Calliope Elinor
Frances Ivy Pearl
Frances Coralie Jane
Frances Ottoline Blythe
Frances Ottilie Violet
Frances Amabel Violet (Not sure about the repeated ‘a’ sounds but it sure looks pretty!)
Frances Rufina Valentine  (okay, a bit odd, bit neat!)
Frances Lucy Primrose
Frances Tallulah Jane
Frances Romilly Isobel
Frances Luna Irene
Frances Aurelia Violet (I amy pull Aurelia Violet outr and give her a spot of her own!)
Frances Jemima Pearl
Frances Violetta Pearl
Frances Ophelia Blythe
Frances Penelope Violet
Frances Matilda Jane
Frances Ottilie Jane

Raphael

I’m thinking about Raphael these days. I usually go for Rafael as that’s the family spelling. Not only that, but in my heavily Brasilian community, a Rafael is far more likely than a Raphael. But I do like Raphael and decided to try him out. Here’s what we came up with:

Raphael Edward Wilder
Raphael William Rex
Raphael Milo Valentine
Raphael Edward Aloysius
Raphael Willem Algernon
Raphael Arthur George
Raphael Milo Arthur
Raphael Ezra Jude
Raphael Xavier John
Raphael Henry Bleys
Raphael Maxim James
Raphael Alasdair Claud
Raphael Edgar Hugh
Raphael Edward Apollo
Raphael Barnaby Arthur
Raphael Felix Emil
Raphael John Porfirio
Raphael Albert James
Raphael Edgar Wilder
Raphael Oliver Bede

Sorry for the sheer number of combos. Raphael proved quite easy to work with. He’s got great rhythm!

What do you think of Raphael?  Leo, Simon, Josephine & Raphael  (Leo, Sim, Josie & Rafe)? Workable? Not? Good, Bad, ugly? Is there anything up there that jumps out to you?  I highlighted my faves, what are yours? 

 

And, as always, Thanks a million for stopping by!¬† ūüėÄ
