The Newest Appealers

Okay, so that was rather odd for a title but it’s about as dead on as I can think right now.  I have a small set of names that have been appealing to me and they’re not quite my usual fare.  I don’t want to make combos with them, I don’t want to use them, I just want to admire them. Is that weird?  🙂  I suppose in a way, yeah.

But I was thinking, if I have these that appeal, but have no inclination to use, what does that make them?  Not GP’s, because they’re perfectly ordinary names (for the most part). Here they are:

Sylvie – it’s so crystal clear & crisp. Sharp, even. But so sweet too.  Too simple for me to actually use, Sylvie’s so pretty!

Clotilde – Before you shriek; clo-TEELD, there’s no clot- sound. I think she’s so light & delicate. Absolutely sky blue too.  Just beautiful.

Claud – Yeah, really. I love him in French and think the pronunciation in English can be dealt with.  I love the way he looks. What is it with me and losing that final ‘e’?  Claude feels a bit brutish to me, not so Claud. Weird, no?

George – Maybe it’s me, I think Washington, Monkey (and man with Yellow hat), and Carlin before Bush. And those three save George for me. I like him because in a roundabout way, he honors my Pop, who would have made a fabulous George but settled for being his Patron Saint.  I did spend time trying to be happy with George up front, but none of my other favorites sound right with George up front.

And the wild one: Vashti. I did make a combo I was happy with a long time ago (at leat a year ago) Vashti Amandine Faye. But the combo no longer appeals yet Vashti still does; what sort of freakish nonsense is this? Vashti? So lush, rich and beautiful. Doesn’t fit wth Josephine but Vashti still appeals. Definitely wild.  ;D

 

 So there’s my  “I don’t want to do anything but admire” appealing bunch.  Do you have any names like this? What are they? and what do you think of mine?

Clementine Redux

Working on the thought I barely recalled: Clementine, nn Cleo. Since I adore Cleo and thoroughly like Clementine I figured I should try out some different combos for her, see if anything really jumps out out me. Wanna see? 😀

 

Here goes:

Clementine Portia Clotilde – love the lush feel of this one
Clementine Lucy Isobel – feels a bit expected.
Clementine India Maud – ooh, interesting, I love India and well, Maud’s in contention for first place…
Clementine Alice Elinor – very pretty.
Clementine Eos Faye – No one’s going to ‘get” Eos, but she’s so pretty!
Clementine Mina Alice – love Mina and Alice together.
Clementine India Jane – a bit crisper than India Maud.
Clementine Ottilie Echo – Alright, so Echo’s whimsy. It gets two of my favorite names in there with the whimsy.
Clementine Ivy Agatha – Or maybe Agatha Ivy, either way, Agatha grounds both very nicely.
Clementine Sylvie Violet – Loving Sylvie recently and Violet’s gorgeous and honors.
Clementine Jemima Adele – Love, love, love Jemima andAdele feels light & sweet here.
Clementine Esme Viola -terminally elegant!
Clementine Violet Rosalind – maybe too nature-y all around?
Clementine Agatha Violet – utterly charming, Agatha Violet.
Clementine Edwina Violet – I love Edwina, she’s charmingly quaint. Violet honor, again.
Clementine Lily Adele – Lily honors Grandma, Adele is just sweet. (now if I could just get him to stop saying Adele like they do in “Natural Born Killers…)
Clementine Lilias Pearl – Lilias honors Grandma a bit more circularly, Pearl just charms me.
Clementine Viola Odette – still hooked on those Opera names!
Clementine Maud Elinor – My beloved Maud with Honoring Elinor.
Clementine Alice Grey – Still feeling a bit Steampunkish, this suits the mood. And feels sort of buttoned up and respectable at the same time.  

 

So there you go, along with all my thoughts at the moment. What do you think?  Let me know!

 

As always, Thanks!

Cleo

Alright, I’ve been trying to get people to call *me* Cleo since I was two and have failed miserably. 😀    So I keep coming back to her for another girl. yeah, I’d use Cleopatra for myself, even now but not on a kid, she was too nasty a bint, ruined it. So Cleo it is. (I love Clio, the muse but seeing as how Verity already has a daughter ‘named’ Clio… I feel I should go back to my first love). Still sticking with Cleo Portia; I have a whole bunch of combos to sift through, wanna help? 🙂

Cleo Portia Clementine
Cleo Portia Matilde
Cleo Portia Delphine
Cleo Portia Rupinder
Cleo Portia Melisande
Cleo Portia Rosamund
Cleo Portia Katharine
Cleo Portia Valentina
Cleo Portia Bluebell
Cleo Portia Clotilde

 

My favorites are Cleo Portia Clementine. Cleo Portia Matilde, Cleo Portia Rupinder (yes, still trying to fit her somewhere, I think here is Perfect!), Cleo Portia Rosamund & Cleo Portia Katharine (Katharine might balance Cleo & Portia a fair bit).  But couldn’t pick one if my life depended on it. (well, maybe Cleo Portia Rupinder).

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks! 😀
