I'm glad to see someone else likes Sloane. It usually gets booed.
vote up1
I know! usually, when a name I like gets hammered into the ground, I tend to lose interest and drop it, but Sloane I just can't let go of! (probably because most of the negative comments are that it's "too masculine", and I just won't have any of that)
vote up1
When I posted about it a while ago I got some very negative responses, take a look:
http://www.behindthename.com/bb/arcview.php?id=101854&board=babyAt one point in BtN's history some people seemed to think they were the high arbiters of taste and threw the word "trashy" around with abandon. The atmosphere was so negative I stopped participating for a long time.

Ooooooh.Clio Simone is one of the most chic, timeless, and gorgeous combos I've seen in a long time! Also loving Bryony Evelyn, Calliope Junia (mental note: ask DBF about Junia!), and wondering where you came up with Alaire. I like the way it looks and sounds, but could you tell me more about it?For the boys -- I'm with you, Sebastian is awesome, popularity aside. Julian Amadeus is my favorite of your boy combos, mostly because I'm having a torrid love affair with Julian. XD
vote up1
Thank you for these wonderful comments :DI first read the name Alaire in the book Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer. Alaire is a woman in the book (it's non-fiction) who undergoes some very traumatic experiences, but is described as being very beautiful. I've read that Alaire is a version of Hilary and, like Hilary, is considered a masculine name, though it's been adapted to be feminine.

Thank you. Noor Vivienne has been one of my favorites combos for a while now. The name Noor came to my attention many years ago when I was watching A Baby Story on TLC. Just in the past year it has come back to my attention. Once I chose Vivienne as the middle name, it all just fit into place. It's been on my top ten list ever since.

Iris--Ditto
Georgia--Very classy, but still with a bit of spunk

Cecilia--Prefer Cecelia, for silly reasons, but a very nice name all the same. I believe this was the name of my third grade teacher's older daughter.Leo--Hee! The name of both my cat and my Latin teacher from last year. I think it's very handsome.
Raphael--Is Raphael on my long list? I need to check, because it should be there!
Jasper--My combo's Jason Jasper. I like how snappy Jasper is.
Graham--Handsome and kind, all in one.
Henry--Always thought it was bland, but it's been growing on me lately. My combo's Henry Atticus.A++
