Edgar

Thinking about Edgar recently. Nothing serious yet, I mean, he’s been in the back of my head for a few months and I’ve been thinking about his possibility as a first name for two days. 🙂 I’m actually liking him quite a bit. Edgar feels strong, a bit jazzy, rather dashing and cool.  Between Edgar Allan Poe, Edgar Rice Burroughs & Edgar Degas, I’m rather swoony on Edgar right now.  He’s not going to replace Rufus anytime soon, but I’m starting to think of combos for him…

Edgar Milo John
Edgar Milo Peregrin
Edgar Morgan John
Edgar William Wilder
Edgar Finlay Jude
Edgar Taliesin Bede
Edgar Finbar George/Edgar Finbar James

Of course, this is only a start, anything there to make you think I may be on the right track?

 As far as the Ed- names go, what do you think of Edgar? Anyone else see how I get the handsome, jazzy somewhat Victorian vibe from him?

 Am I the only soul who likes Edgar? Some days it feels like it. 

 

So, the question for today, obviously; – Edgar?  😀

 

girly Boys!

I like soft sounding names, anything with an -s ending is a favorite with Cassius, Remus, Linus & Julius being my favorite favorites.  I like boy names that could possibly get girly sounding nicknames, like Magnus: Mags/Maggie.

I started thinking about the names I grew up with that were used for both and then slid feminine (do any slide masculine? I don’t think so) and came up with these name that I would much rather see on a boy than a girl :

Dana
Sidney
Kelly
Francis
Shannon
Ashley
Aubrey
Leslie
Whitney
Lindsay
Courtney
Stacy
Robin
Jamie
Julian
Terry
Kim
Jesse
Cameron
Morgan
Alex
Reese
Peyton
Loren
Hayden
Adrian
Ariel

I know there are loads more, what names do you prefer on a boy over a girl? Which of these do you think is still workable for a boy?  All thoughts welcome!
