    Really?? Wow..

    Came across Triplet girls:
    Raigyn Leigh, Dylan Monroe & Maisyn Nicole
    I kind of like the look of Maisyn and the nickname possibilities of Maisy/Mae but it still sounds like a boy, Mason

    Mad met a girl named Astrid at Juju’s gymnastics class.

    Well, I for one am happy to hear all of the Agneses! It’s my favorite vintage/old hag name, and if I had more guts, I would use it (especially since it means the same thing as my mom’s name, “pure”). I love a lot of it’s variants, too–Agnethe (I think this is the Danish/German version? ag-NET-tah. Very soft and lilting!), Agnessa, the French Agnès (pronounced ahn-YESS), Agatha, Agnieszka (ag-nyesh-kah, I think?), etc.! I think Agnes is a lot more classic that most people are giving it credit for, but I know most people on here aren’t fans at all, haha. I would love to meet a little Agnes! I don’t like Aggie at all–it reminds me too much of “old hag/haggie”, haha, but it is growing on me. I like the nn Maggie for it (if Teddy can be a nn for Edward, why not Maggie for Agnes? Especially since Nell as a nn for Eleanor came about from “Mine Eleanor” to “Mine Elle” to “My Nell”–My Aggie can pretty easily become Maggie. :)) and Annie (which makes a ton of sense with the French pronunciation, or even Anya, although I like Annie more).

    Anyhoo. For over a year at my new job, I’ve been stuck making food, rather than taking orders, but the past two days I’ve been on register (praise the Lord!!!!!!), and I’ve come across a lot more interesting names than I have been all year!

    Luna
    Isabelle
    Roman
    Annie
    Domenic (not the traditional Dominic, which I LOVE, but I actually don’t hate it? Especially since Domenica is a legitimate feminine variant, I think?)
    Betsy

    I think there might have been others, but those are the ones I remember right now. :) I like them all, but LOVE Luna, Isabelle, Annie, and Domenic. And really like Roman. I didn’t used to like it at all, but it’s really been growing on me now that there’s a TV show that I really love with a Roman in it that I also really love…

    I think Agnes is cute but overdone in my town.

    & I have a nephew by the name of Roman. :) It’s grown on me, but I’m still not the biggest fan.

    All those were adults, for what it’s worth. The kids I’ve come across in the past two days were infinitely more boring–Olivia, Lucas, and Aiden (although Olivia was adorable!). Why do adults seem to have more interesting, in-style names than kids do?

    I found a list of a class of kindergarteners that someone shared online for a joke unrelated to the names, but anyway, I thought I would share them because they’re fascinating:

    Abby
    Ali
    Ankith
    Ben
    David
    Ehsan
    Emely (In a reply earlier today, I commented that no one spells Emily like this. I have been proven wrong. However, it still looks incorrect…)
    Ethan
    Galder
    Isabella
    Jackson
    Lucas
    Nandhini
    Noah
    Nola
    Ryan x2
    Samira
    Sofia
    Sophia x2
    Tess
    Tyler

    I’m sat here in my living room, listening to my grandma’s TV programming while I’m online–and honestly. The only thing she listens to is Christian kids’ programming. I am not sure why, but that’s literally all she watches. That, and the weather, every day. haha. (I don’t pretend to understand what goes on in the mind of a 90-year-old!)

    Anyway, so there are lots of kids’ names being mentioned, so I figured I’d share.

    Siblings: Rachel (9), Barbara (6), and Elizabeth (2) (from Papua New Guinea, I think she said?)
    Siblings: Samuel “Sammy” (5 1/2), Lea(h) (either 2 or 3), and Luke (3 months) (from Germany)
    Emma (x2)
    Donnie
    Caleb and Samuel
    Tabitha

    There were several others, but I couldn’t remember, or couldn’t hear. Her room’s on the opposite end of the house, lol.

    And on break at work today I was people watching and came across these three people who apparently knew each other way back–one was a fairly young man, and the other two were a middle-aged couple, and they were catching up. The young man talked about how he was, what job he did, etc., and how he had kids now (oh, you know my ears perked right up!), and he has a 18-month-old named Eleanor. :) I nearly swooned! I never ever hear gems like that–most are either made-up or mundane, popular choices (like Nicholas, Tyler, Gabriella, Hannah, etc.–all nice, but not very exciting), and it was just so cute to hear him talk about her. And omgoodness, Eleanor! I would love to meet a little Eleanor. Such a beautiful name.

    If you want to meet a little Eleanor, you need to come here ;) My husband loves the name (and I do too), but I already know several Ethan’s age and younger so I’m not sure I want to use it.

    A 6 yr. Old Barbara?!
    I met a 2yr old Elektra (yes spelled like that too)

    lol, I’m not sure I want to meet a ton of Eleanors–I think that would take away its charm! I love it, though, and Ella and Lena are such cute nns! I’d love having just one little Eleanor in my life (so long as she didn’t go by the dreaded Ellie or Nora, lol!).

    @lcd1912 – yeah, I figured more people would comment on that! It was Papua New Guinea, though, so maybe they just liked that it sounded “American” to them? Maybe they saw it on TV or something, idk. haha. I have a really good friend from Scotland whose name is Barbara, though. She utterly hates it, and goes by Bea, but I think they’re around… Not a ton, but a few.

    I came across Angelo today. :) I don’t like most of the Ang- names for girls (although Angelica and Angelique are not bad), but I find the Angel- names so intriguing for boys, especially Angelo! It’s really fun and Italian, imo. :)

    Every couple of months, a St. Vincentian-American church from my denomination in NYC comes down to visit this theatre that produces Bible stories grand-scale a couple counties away. They sort of discovered us by accident when other churches in the area didn’t want them to come, so they visit us every time they come down, and occasionally I get to hear some names. :) I was in the high school/college aged class today, and there were about 10 students that came down. Many had predictable, dated (some much more dated than 80s names!) names like Karen, Crystal, Christina, Shawn, etc., but there were two that caught my eye: Isis and Giselle (both of which I found refreshing. I also found it odd that that was the second Isis I’ve come across in about two weeks!). There was a little girl (probably about 8 or 9?) who did special music whose name was Diana, which I thought was lovely, too. :)

    I do like Giselle and I really love Diana.
    Ash, have I told you that we have two nieces named Eleanor (one on each side)? :) It’s a great name. The one on DH’s side is … 12? 11. I should know this. ;) And the one on my side is 8. SIL said they rarely meet another Eleanor though. One goes by Ellie and the other by Eleanor or Ella.

    I have never seen Arianabell or Valesca before. And Wilkins as a first name!?

    This is the second Valesca I’ve met but the other was a middle aged woman. Arianabell is quite a mouthful! I agree Wilkins sounds like he has two last names! At least he can go by Will I guess :/

    Wow yes, Arianabell is a mouthful!
    I like Merin though I prefer the spelling Maren. I think Georgiana is cute, too.
