is super sweet, and I've never cared for Willow
. Pretty easy decision for me, though there isn't much rhyme or reason.
Having a Meadow
and a Willow
is a little much in the hippy department for me. I think the difference between Meadow
is that -A is a common sound at the end of words/ names, whereas -O (especially on girls) is uncommon and really catches peoples' attention, so two -O names stick out more together than two -A names.
They're less cringe-worthy than Brandy
, but aren't along the same lines as Nora
(I think that's just the feel of the names, though).
I'd equate them to Harper
, maybe? The -O ending sounds makes them seem very similar. Something like Willow
would be less noticeable because 1) the spelling, and 2) it's WILL-o and mar-GO so the stress is different, too. Meadow
with the stress on the first syllable makes them more rhymey.
