My “style”?

I am apparently all over the map, style wise. I really looked at my top lists the other day and was struck by the fact that I seem to have at least 2 separate styles. Weird and funky.  here, I’ve grouped them in similar piles:

Group 1
Maud India Scarlett
Ottilie Alice Ghislaine
Zelda Lucy Violet
Edith Zenobia Violet
Lilias Mehetabel June
Sylvie Mimosa Jane
Xanthe Iris Dorothea
Cleo Portia Rupinder
Cecily Pandora Jane

 

 

Group 2
Clementine India Jane
Jemima Lucy Maud
Lucretia Ruby Iris
Winifred Elinor Plum
Matilda Frances Ruby
Imogen Violet Jane
Beatrix Violet Jane
Euphemia Elinor Glory
Philippa Saskia Violet
Cecilia Violet Petronel

and those are just the girls!  I can do that to the boys too, to a lesser extent. See:

 

Group1
Rufus Wilder John
Remy Edward Xavier
Cosmo Henry George
Bruno Edward Rafael
Barnaby Edward Rex
Ignatius Edward George
Clarence Arthur Finlay
Caspar James Porfirio
Alasdair Barnaby George

 

Group 2
Arthur Henry Llewellyn
Oscar Valentin George
Linus Willem Bleys
Harvey Edward Augustin
Francis Henry Porfirio
Edward Balthazar George
Rafael August Anselm

 

So, do you agree, I’m mildly crazy? or do you see these in different groups?  Which group appeals more to you? Which ones? Anything really jump out at you up there? Let me know! 

 

And, as always, thanks for stopping by!  😀  

Thinking “Normal”

Well, trying to anyway. Anytime I bring up something familiar, Edward, George, Francis are the three I’m playing with at the moment, he has to give me a huge list of odd things to use as middles. My goodness!

I’d solidified Edward a long time ago. Edward was my Uncle. Well, one of them, anyway (Frank, Benjamin, Leo & Stanley were the others on the maternal side). I hated the Uncle but love the cousin who was named for him. So in backwards thinking mode, it’s for him, not the Uncle.  Edward Balthazar George.  Has stood as such for nearly 4 years now. He’s my “Well, he looks too timid for anything else” combo. It sits at the bottom of the Wildcards pile and waits for his chance.

 Francis is one I’ve liked forever, simply for his Frank appeal. I find Frank simply open and friendly. And the Uncle was an absolute doll. I have many fond memories. He’s lovely. And well, Francis polishes up very nicely. I’ve had Francis Henry Porfirio for at least a year. Tried out Francis Arthur Peregrin as well, he’s still stewing on it. Other recent tries were: Francis Dmitri Jude & Francis Milo George. Don’t know which I prefer FHP or FAP (either way, his final initials would be FM!

 

Now for George!  I’ve tried to put him up front before, with little success. But I tried again and came up with a few that I do find appealing. Here:

George Lucien Sylvester
George Constantin Gavriil
George Malcolm Amadeo
George Arthur Aloysius
George Maximilian Xavier
George Milo Valentin
George  Malachy Wilder
George Laszlo Rafael
George Inigo Maxfield
George Rafferty Graeme

 

Anything seem appealing up there? Anything you think might be better with a tweak?  Talk to me!  🙂

 

As always, Thanks for stopping by! 😀

Frank

Yes, I know, he’s brash and a bit rough and Ol’ Blue Eyes did Frank no favors. But I recently went digging through the family tree and realised that my Uncle Frank was just Frank. Not Francis/Frank. Now, I’m still inclined to use Francis and nn him Frank but I admit, I like Frank much better than Francis.  And I have another confession: Jason Statham plays an awful lot of Frank (well, 2 really) and I watched “Death Race” again last night.  Yeah, and I’m going to see if I can talk him into “The Transporter” tonight. Yeah, I’ve got a thing going here, it seems. I just like looking at him, don’t care that he’s not a top actor but wow! his action flicks are awesome!  (that’s enough of that, then)

So, Frank. Is he enough to stand on his own or should I go with my gut and go with Francis in full, Frank as a nickname?  I have no Frank alone combos, not yet. I will be working on those shortly. I have Francis though, and I adore his combo: Francis Henry Porfirio, nn Frank. How adorable would a tiny Frankie be? 🙂  I’m melting just thinking about that!

So, which would you choose? Francis or Frank?  Wanna tell me why?  I’d love to know! 

 

As always, thanks a million. I appreciate it more that you know!

Help!

I want to narrow my top 10 to a top 5, at least for now. I’m going to either/or them and pick one? Thanks!

 

Ottilie or Jemima?
Winifred or Clementine?
Maud or Zelda?
Beatrix or Cecily?
Lucretia or Pomeline?

 

Cassius or Clarence?
Remy or Cosmo?
Rufus or Barnaby?
Alasdair or August?
Arthur or Francis?

 

I couldn’t choose if my life depended on it.  One minute it’s one way, the next it’s the other. I love them all and just cannot decide which 5 are best! Can you help? I’d really appreciate it!  

As always, Thanks! 😀

Zelda Redux!

I’ve been playing around with Zelda again. I wasn’t quite happy with Zelda Rosalie Violet, there’s something a bit too relentlessly cheerful about her for me.  So I went digging  again and came up with these:

 

Zelda Violet Elinor
Zelda Violet Esmée
Zelda Violet Pearl
Zelda Lucy Violet
Zelda Violet Imogen
Zelda Cerys Violet
Zelda Esme Frances

So far, Zelda Violet Esmée, Zelda Lucy Violet & Zelda Esme Frances are all tied in the poll I’ve got going and honestly I couldn’t decide which one right now if I had to! 

So I need to ask again, which would you pick, if you had to use one of these?

I’ll be running off for the wildcard spot too, since I have 5 girls:

Henrietta Ruby Lilias
Florence Lila Ghislaine
Romilly Alice Kathleen
Imogen Violet Jane (although he keeps shooting her down, I keep trying!)|
Eulalie Frances Madelief

 

and 5 boys:

Harvey Edward Augustin
Roland Edward Grey
Felix Edward Alasdair
Rufus John Porfirio
Francis Henry Porfirio

That I can’t decide between. I have room for 1 of each from each list on the big list. Wanna help me decide there too?  😀

 Thanks!

Harvey, Francis & Arthur

 These are the three that have been stewing in my brain for a while now. Well, Arthur’s been there for a bit longer  but he’s resurfacing.

I am drawn to the  jazz laden, knightly image of these three gents. They’re strong, handsome and really quite dashing if you give them a chance.

 I have tentative combos for each of them:
Arthur William Bede
Arthur Finlay Rhys
Arthur Barnaby John
Arthur Henry Llewellyn

Francis Henry Porfirio
Francis Henry Aloysius
Francis Barnaby Finn
Francis Barnaby Jack

Harvey Francis Porfirio
Harvey Finbar Jude
Harvey Milo Valentine
Harvey Jasper Graham
Harvey Edward Augustin 

What do you think of my three knightly gents and which combos do you prefer? I’m going to poll them too, Here: Arthur/Francis   &   Harvey  !  Thanks!
