How would you describe your naming style?
What style/preferences do you tend to like in names? And do you go for a different vibe with girl names versus boy names? (i.e. classic for girls, country/rugged for boys, or whatever?)
I would say my preferences are a mix of classic names (though I can be a little picky about those), biblical names and some with an international flair (i.e. Lucia, Elena, Leonardo, etc. … somewhat inspired by having a fun Portuguese last name now that sounds good with names like that!). Ideally I like names that are less common, but DH and I have such a hard time agreeing on names, and there are some timeless classic but super popular names that I do really love–like William and Alexander. Also Sophia, Isabella, Elizabeth, Catherine, Anna, Julia, Luke, Matthew and Andrew for a few more examples.
Oh, one other thing about me is that meanings are very important to me. That’s actually why I ended up striking my beloved Julia from the list; “downy-bearded youth” is just not a meaning I’m wild about for my daughter.
