The Freaks

It’s a bit mean of a title but I mentioned yesterday there’s a handful of names I’d love to use even though they don’t fit with the rest of the kids. Thought I’d toss them out here, see if you agree!

Without further ado, here are the freaks on my name lists:

Anthea
Isis
Cleo/Cleopatra/Cleophée
Leonore (obviously, if Cleo rhymes, this *is* Leo)!
Aurelia
Dorothea
Coralie
Saffron
Portia
Lavender
Sibyl

Ignatius
Blaise
Lazarus
Florian
Laszlo
Maximilian/Maxim
Peregrin
Constantin
Caspar

 

I try to stick these in the middle but I would adore to use any of these up front. Do you think I could get away with any of these, or should I just keep thinking about them as potential middles? What do you think?  😀

 

As always, thanks a million for stopping by! 

A Handful of Oddballs

Frida/Frieda, Vashti, Adele, Rowena, Zora, Louisa & Gwendolen/Gwendolyn. All of these are names that appeal to me on some level but will never be used for one reason or another.

Frida/Frieda, Adele, Louisa & Zora because they’ve been vetoed by the other half. Vashti’s too exotic, Gwendolen/Gwendolyn is weird, I prefer the -en ending, it’s instinctively the -yn spelling. So rules it out.

Do you have names you’d admire but can’t use, for whatever reason? I’d love to see some of them!
