Imogen again and a few Genevieve combos

I started thinking about how perfect Imogen is. Sound-wise, she’s crisp, clean looking and simply elegant. Sound wise, she’s sharp and pretty. Her color is simply golden and she looks fabulous with the forest green surname, like an Xmas decoration! And on top of that,  she’s Shakespearean, what’s not to love?

I have a few combos for her that really appeal:

Imogen Violet Jane
Imogen Sylvie Jane
Imogen Clio Violet
Imogen Lily Elinor
Imogen Ruby Valentine
and the real oddball: Imogen Ruby Malu

Now, for Genevieve combos. This is how I spent my time last night. Watching Monty Python;  have the whole series (all 46 episodes) and last night was the “Spam” , the Royal Episode #13. “Whicker’s World” (Njorl’s Saga), and “Mr. & Mrs. Brian Norris’ Ford Popular”. So my brain was free to wander while I laughed my fool head off. Yeah, we average about 4 episodes a night  (And I found my head at to foot of the big screen).  😛

Anyway, Genevieve combos:

Genevieve Iris Elinor
Genevieve India Pearl
Genevieve Viola Frances
Genevieve Lucy Elinor
Genevieve Ottilie Jane
Genevieve Sylvie Plum
Genevieve Esme Lily
Genevieve Lily Katharine
Genevieve Mina Violet
Genevieve Carys Primrose

 

 Anyone wanna help me narrow it down?  We each have a favorite or two among these, but I’m staying mum on that for now!  Any thoughts welcome and as always, thanks for stopping by!  😀

Genevieve

Can I get some thoughts on Genevieve? I find Genevieve incredibly annoying to type out and almost as annoying to write out but despite all that, I find Genevieve growing on me.

It’s a family name for me. I talk about my Babci, Cecilia and her 12 brothers a fair bit, but what I usually leave out is her little sister, Genevieve, who died at 2 from whooping cough. Genevieve and Cecilia are the only two family members who are buried, too. Everyone else has been cremated. So I do visit their graves fairly recently. Babci’s is prominent and up front in the graveyard but Genevieve is tucked away in back with a a tiny headstone, suitable for the toddler she was. Babci never spoke of Genevieve but apparently she had before I was born, my Mom knew the story and passed it along to me. She was apparently a social little thing, visiting all the families around them but contracted whooping cough late one winter and that was that. Took her five days to die. I can only imagine the horror of watching that. So for a long time Genevieve has been off my lists.

But I started thinking the other day, what better way to remember her than to use it again? Maybe I should. No combos yet, still testing just Genevieve. I don’t know what sort of nickname I’d use. Gen/Genna doesn’t appeal, Neve/Eve maybe. But Evie is already so ubiquitous! Can anyone else think of a nickname from Genevieve that might appeal to me?

So, what do you all think of Genevieve? Should I consider her or was I thinking right at first? C’mon, let me have it!
