ok here i amTo make some combos for thee!Dashiell - Dashiell is great. I immediately think of a Victorian gent with scads of money who is deliciously bored with life and lies around in a languidly beautiful state. Therefore: Dashiell Rupert, Dashiell Basil, Dashiell Dorian, Dashiell Albert, Dashiell Alfred, Dashiell AntonMaksim - Maksim is bold and loud and burly yet dashing; I think of a tolstoy hero who is totally innocent and artless and blunders passionately towards his destiny. Maksim Franz, Maksim Anton, Maksim Aleksander, Maksim Artur, Maksim Leo, Maksim Benedikt, Maksim Eduard, Maksim Thaddeus.Amir - Amir is sleek and mysterious like a modern jet-setting version of Aladdin's lamp. Amir Benesh, Amir Doron, Amir Faivish, Amir Falk, Amir Gavriel, Amir Immanuel, Amir Malachi, Amir Oz

Boys
1) John Alexander - a family name...the person in question has of yet only been honored by initials because of a shortage of men in the family and the honoring of others.
2) Severus Alexander - if I use Severus and John Alexander then I'll have to change out the middle name for Severus...my intent is something classical (Greek or Latin). Any suggestions? Maybe Augustus?
3) Horatio Nelson - yes, I still wish to honor the admiral.
4) Francis Sudbury - Sudbury is a family name.
5) Frederick George
6) Percival Arthur or Percival Ignatius - Percival Ignatius was the first Percival combo I ever wanted to use, and considering that Ignatius is becoming more popular in Australia, by the time I use it, it may be considered posh in America (at least that's my reasoning)
7) Edward Charles - Charles is a new love of mine, and Edward is my consistant favorite
8) Archibald Colin
9) Lawrence Oliver
10) James Godric or Godric JamesGirls
1) Martha Ann Rebecca - family name

Question on MarieHow does it make you think of Blackbirds & Blackberries?
vote up1
I am not sure how the blackbird/berry thing happened. I was sitting on a bus on my way home from work and thinking about Marie and how pastelly it is, when suddenly I thought of it in terms of the juxtaposition of dark and light, like a blackbird on a bare branch against a pearl-grey sky or a bowl of blackberries in cream, and the name just came alive for me.

Theodore James is stupendous.Ambrose Xavier sounds like a thug.Dinah is also sort of nice. It has grown on me. I like Dinah Blythe.I prefer Marian.

I would never think of Ambrose as a thuggish name. hmmm. I like that combo because of my Xavier Ambrose Winter dream but I'm not sure how I feel about Xavier in front.He does kinda sound like a snobby euro footballer, I'll give you that.Dinah is growing on me too in leaps and bounds. I like how quiet and unassuming it seems. Dinah Blythe is very pretty.

vote up1
I really like Elsa and Winter. Penelope, Josephine, Aurora, and River are nice too, and although I don't think I'd use Jethro or Merritt, I can understand their appeal.
vote up1
Penelope is really growing on me too, I think because I realized it's totally a "me" name. Like if I showed up with a baby and told everyone her name was Penelope they would all say "well of course it is".Finnian is great. It sounds so cheery.
