Do you follow No Big Dill? Her blog makes me want to try sewing again. (But sewing reduces me to tears.) No Big Dill’s Sew All 26 series opened up with a great dress made for her niece, Mary Deane, which is apparently a family name. Love a family name, love an unexpected Mary combo.
Elsewhere in name news:
- Nancy uncovers the surprising story of Sunya.
- Daisy’s family is against the name she’s chosen for her daughter. Two questions: what do you think of Xiomara, and do you think that Daisy and her husband should stick with their favorite name? I’m a big believer in using the name you love, regardless of family opinions.
- Forgotten French names – how much do I love Cleophee and Evandelin? And Neigette – kind of like being named Snowy, right?
- Hyphenated names have never appealed to me, but I know that many love them – and this list is truly a delight. Do you have any experience with hyphenated names? I’m a much bigger fan of double names.
- Could Anne be considered a stylish name? Angela makes a compelling case.
- Speaking of Anne and double names and such, check out this birth announcement for AnnaSage Rose. I love AnnaSage as a double name, smoosh name – or hey, even as Anna-Sage.
- In the same list of birth announcements, there’s a Cobain! Is Cobain the next in the Lennon, Hendrix trend? It does have a great sound.
- What would you name twelve boys? I suppose you’d have more than a dozen years to figure it out, but it still a question that stumps me! Twelve girls, on the other hand? No problem!
- Doesn’t Lorelei seem like the perfect sister name for Anneliese and Genevieve? The family has some other considerations, and I like Swistle’s take on this one.
- Emme, Kingston and Zuma, and more kids likely to see and be seen at Fashion Week.
- I really like the combination in this birth announcement round-up: Jude Henley. I’m just a sucker for two-syllable, ends-with-y names in the middle spot.
- Let’s end with rare royal names for boys. I love August, Axel, and Leopold!
That’s all for this week! As always, thank you for reading, and have a great week.
