Baby Names

Prune My GP List

You ladies (and gentleman!) have been so helpful in your comments on my names. Thank you for indulging me. My husband and sister are happier when I don't talk names with them constantly, so it's nice to have an outlet.

My girl list is a mile long and I'd like to start pruning it. These are some of my guilty pleasures and I'm wondering whether any of them are worth fighting for.

Please choose one name I should KEEP.  No "none of the above" ? I love them all but am interested in which ones other people find most/least palatable.

As always, comments welcome.

  • Only one I like from this is Clover.  The rest I either know someone with the name that I can't stand (Jerusha) and the others look too "out there".  Although I will say the only Clover I know is the pet rat I had a few years ago so it sounds more like a pet name to me, but I can see it being a cute girls name.

    I’m a modern man, a man for the millennium. Digital and smoke free. A diversified multi-cultural, post-modern deconstruction that is anatomically and ecologically incorrect. I’ve been up linked and downloaded, I’ve been inputted and outsourced, I know the upside of downsizing, I know the downside of upgrading. I’m a high-tech low-life. A cutting edge, state-of-the-art bi-coastal multi-tasker and I can give you a gigabyte in a nanosecond! I’m new wave, but I’m old school and my inner child is outward bound. I’m a hot-wired, heat seeking, warm-hearted cool customer, voice activated and bio-degradable. I interface with my database, my database is in cyberspace, so I’m interactive, I’m hyperactive and from time to time I’m radioactive.

  • Love Jerusha!  Philomena would be second place.

  • They look like words to me.  Jerusalem, Euphoric, Oh no, and Philharmonic.  And Clover, which really is a word! 

    I voted for Clover.  :-)

  • Clover is pretty. The rest aren't my style, sorry :(

  • I voted for Clover because I have a soft spot for nature names. I also like Philomena.

  • I cannot understand simple directions and voted for the name I thought you should toss.  I do love Clover and Oona (for middle names).

  • Adore the name Clover! The rest are nms.

  • I voted Oona, but would prefer Una if that had been an option.

  • I voted for Clover, which is the only one I would use if I had to choose from there 4.  It's pretty, but MNS.

    I know a girl who has the middle name Philomena and her family calls her Mena (May-nuh).

    GL!

  • I voted for Oona, but I don't mind any of them!
  • Plunderb, are you expecting again? I only pop in here occasionally these days.

    Since we're name twins, my vote is to keep Philomena. That one is on our possible middle names list.

    I really like Oona, too, but could never use it because of Anna/Oona. Too matchy!

  • Clover, but only because you made me choose and I have no idea how to pronounce the rest...and would never be able to spell them if you asked me to.

    Not yet ? just started TTC. I hate the feeling of "Green light! Now just wait patiently, probably for a long time!" So I thought I'd channel my excitement into working on my name list. Hypothetical kid #2 will probably be our last, so I intend to wring every bit of enjoyment out of the naming.

    I like Philomena a lot. There's actually a little Filomena in our neighborhood, but that wouldn't stop me.

  • I voted for Philomena, I think it's pretty and classic.

    Hooray! We're TTC again, too. We would use the same boy name we've had in reserve, but girl names are hard even after 4.5 years of discussions! I've been looking at the same short list of girl names for so long that I simultaneously feel like any of them could be my daughter one day and that none of them are special enough.
