Still dreaming of Jemima

Despite last month’s devestating loss, (well,it was for me!) I’m still dreaming of Jemima. I just adore her sound. Her look is pretty sublime as well. ūüôā

Jemima Frances Ruby (had to flip middles, JRM are Fifi’s initials). So absolutely perfect. At least, I think so!

What middles would YOU pair with Jemima if Frances Ruby wasn’t perfectly fabulous for you? I’m just curious. Go ahead, let me know! ūüėÄ

Helen

I’m quite enamored with Helen at the moment.¬† It’s a definite family name for me, I have three Aunts with the name (well, 2 Helens 1 Helena) but I prefer simple Helen to Helena these days, even. And the last Helen is on her last legs as I type this. She’s not doing well at all.

 

I think it’s brilliantly simple and beautifully strong. Helen’s warm honey to me,¬† and I’m liking her a whole lot. Tried my hand at combos, preliminarily anyway. Here’s what I came up with, and is now narrowed a bit:

 

Helen Saffron Adele
Helen Calliope Jane
Helen Ursula Violet
Helen Isolde Ruby
Helen Aurelia Violet
Helen Rosamond Lily
Helen Tilley Violet

 

I decided to try Saffron out with Helen because they’re almost the same color (not shade)¬†to me, Saffron’s yellow/orange gold and Helen’s honey gold. Ursula is one I just like. ¬†ur -SU- lah. ¬†Primrose is just a bit of whimsy I didn’t think would hurt Helen much and I tried the familial Tilley out in full, I figure, if Leo, Simon & Josephine have a family surname in the middle, Tilley should work too.¬† Of course, Jane, Lily, Ruby, Violet, Marigold, Ottilie¬†& Lucy have significance and Isolde, Camilla, Calliope, Aurelia, Plum & Adele are just ones we like.¬† But I figure with two family names, I can spare a bit for something we just really like!

 

 Anything jump out at you as emminently usable? Am I on the right track, at least? What do you think, anything? 

 

As always, thanks a million for stopping by!

Frances Ruby

I’m sort of stuck on this pairing. Isn’t it sweet and just a little sassy? My Mother would kill me if she were still around but seeing as how she’s not and I still have a pretty visceral reaction when I see people that remind her of me (wanna know what really flips me out? Watch Mamma Mia, Meryl Streep in that flick looks a LOT like my Mom. Longer hair, not curly but the same shade of blonde, same nose, same movements) it makes me cry every time I watch it.

So yeah, She might forgive me. Might.

So I went looking. I have two where Frances is up front:
Frances Ruby Esme
Frances Ruby Adele

And here’s a small bunch with Frances Ruby in the middle:

Tallulah Frances Ruby
Cosima Frances Ruby
Stella Frances Ruby
Katharine Frances Ruby
Philippa Frances Ruby
Matilda Frances Ruby

Which way do you prefer it and is there any combo up there that seems a perfect fit? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this one!

Ruby Marilyn

I’m loving this tiny pairing right now. Ruby warms Marilyn right up. And Marilyn is one of my favorite Aunties on Mom’s side that’s still alive. I love her to pieces! And of course, Ruby’s for me, the July kid.

But what to pair her with?  I have a few thoughts:

India Ruby Marilyn
Edith Ruby Marilyn
Esmée Ruby Marilyn
Beatrix Ruby Marilyn
Imogen Ruby Marilyn
Ottilie Ruby Marilyn
Xanthe Ruby Marilyn
Fenella Ruby Marilyn (yeah, he suggested this one!)
Mina Ruby Marilyn

 

Anything there jump out at you? I’m liking a few but¬†don’t want to say anything now as to sway anyone. I want first thoughts on these, really. What do you like here? Or not?¬†¬† Let me know!

 

Thanks!

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).¬† ūüėõ

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!¬† ūüėÄ

Susanna

Susanna’s new to my lists, sort of. I’ve toyed with her before. She’d honor me; Susanne is my second middle for my mom’s best friend.¬† I really dislike Susanna with the ‘H’ on the end, that ‘H’ clunks it up too much for me. But Susanna, just beautiful.¬† I like the potential for Sukie/Sookie and have been wondering if Daisy as a possible nickname isn’t too far-fetched. After all black-eyed susans are a type of daisy, right? So yeah, another way to get Daisy. I love Daisy. My Grandma would be thrilled! ¬†Of course, now the house would be K, L, L, S, J & S, which rather annoys me but not so much that I still want to¬†consider Susanna.

 

I have a few combos that make me happy in various ways:

 

Susannah Edith Plum
Susanna Iris Pearl
Susanna Ivy Jane
Susanna Jane Petronel
Susanna Margery Jane
Susanna Caroline Violet
Susanna Elspeth June
Susanna Romilly Violet
Susanna Poppy Adele
Susanna Ottilie Pearl
Susanna Lucy Pearl
Susanna Violet June
Susanna Viola Marilyn
Susanna Zoya Ruby/Alice/Jane/Frances/Maud
Susanna Sylvie June

 

 

¬†There are a few that really stand out to me, but I want to see if any stand out to anyone else. Would you all be so kind as to flip though these and tell me what you like or really hate? I’d really appreciate it!¬†¬†I’ll state my favorites later.

 

As always, thanks for stopping by and also for commenting!

Edith, Again!

I’ve been loving Edith/Edie for a good while now and have come¬†up with a good dozen or so combos over that time that appeal to me in one fashion or another. Edith feels starchy and sweet to me, even artsy. The word that comes to mind first when I think Edith? bohemian. Yeah. And I love that. Edith could easily rank #2 if I find the combo that sings to me. All of these do, some in one style or the other but they all sing. Help me decide which one sings best? I’d really appreciate it! Here are the lot of them:

Edith Alice Bertille – the standard bearer. Elegant, luscious and sweet. She’s Barbershop.

Edith Esme Violetta – She’s Opera, without a doubt, Lush and heady.

Edith Rosalie Pearl – She’s a ditty. Sweet and happy.

Edith Malu Violet – She’s a Jungle rhythm. Heavy and full, very, very light on her feet. This one dances too.

Edith Ruby Elinor – She’s a Waltz. Feels very 18th century, to me.

Edith Viola Petronel – She’s musica mundana; universally harmonious. I love the creative vibe I get from her.

Edith Isobel Loveday –¬† Is Bluesy.¬† Just feels so blue and gorgeous.

Edith Ruby Pomeline –¬† Is a whole Orchestra! She’s full & rich. Just beautiful.

Edith Mary Bluebell – is a country tune. Sweet, a little sad but has a rollicking rhythm.

Edith Zenobia Violet –¬† She’s a Tango.¬† A little spicy and¬† sultry. ūüėČ

Edith Romilly Lenore –¬† She’s a classical piece. She feels very faerie tale-ish to me. Light-hearted but has a dark streak. So lush!

 

¬†Alright, there’s the different music types I get from each combo,¬† am I crazy or do you feel it too? At least a little bit?¬† Maybe?¬† Any up there that leap out at you as absolutely perfect? I’d love to know!¬†

 

 as always, Thanks!
