TEMPLE  added 9/23/2019, 3:35:19 AM by Felie

My first associations with Temple are: Shirley Temple, Temple Bar (Dublin) and Shirley Temple drink.

The link with temple (building) comes later.

The vibe of Temple is mainly Hollywood and Irish with a bit of cherries.

The origin of names like Cillian, Killian or Kirk is "church" so why not Temple for a girl? ^^

It is cute!

A Shirley Temple is a non-alcoholic mixed drink traditionally made with ginger ale and a splash of grenadine, garnished with a maraschino cherry. Modern Shirley Temple recipes may substitute lemon-lime soda or lemonade and sometimes orange juice in part, or in whole.

I am German/English and this is my first name. My German grandfather told me a popular definition for "Astrid" in German is "Queen of the North" and this is what he called me. "Astrid" is a popular German name as well for women, and in my family, I am the second. I hated the name growing up because I could never find it on a souvenir while travelling. I hope my name doesn't become too popular, I now like how different it is. I have never gone by a nickname because honestly, they all seem pretty silly.

I didn't know Hannah was still so popular here in the states. I haven't met or heard anyone with this name in so many years that I thought it took a nose dive in popularity. I think Hannah is okay name, it sounds youthful and old-fashioned at the same time.

FRANCIS  added 9/22/2019, 6:04:57 PM by Lucille

In the very last sentence of this entry, it is basically implied that it is only in the English-speaking world that Francis is used for girls:

"In the English-speaking world this name is occasionally used for girls."

This is actually not the case! In the Dutch-speaking world, Francis is unisex, but much more commonly encountered on women than on men. In the Netherlands, that is - in Belgium, the name is more commonly seen on men than on women. The available statistics for the Netherlands kind of match my personal experience as well: I (a Dutchwoman) have never met a male Francis in my life, but I did have a female classmate named Francis when I was in secondary school back in the early 2000s.

For Dutch women, the name started out as a short form of Francisca, whilst for Dutch men, Francis began as a short form of Franciscus. It was what people went by in daily life because the name on their birth certificate (in this case Francisca or Franciscus) was too cumbersome or formal, which is typical for Dutch naming culture. The name Francis has since become used as an independent name on its own, so a male or female Francis in Belgium and the Netherlands today will no longer automatically have Franciscus or Francisca on their birth certificate.

The best known female Dutch bearer is probably the former professional darts player Francis Hoenselaar (b. 1965), whose birth name is of course Francisca:

I like the name Abraham. It reminds me of Lincoln, who was a pretty good man, and definetely one of the best presidents of America. I mean, I know that americans are just descendants of the colonists who stole the land from its respectful owners and have nothing to do with America, but still. Also the nickname Abe seems cute to me.

Normally I don't reply to comments, but TyrannosaurusRegina, did you even read the books? Every character in it is gay, and the movies took away most of the gayness anyway. But Merry is a good nickname, maybe not as a given name. Meriadoc is good though.

I think it's a lovely name and I agree with Sam Gamgee that Galadriel is AMAZING but I wouldn't name anyone it. It's very long and fluttery and works best on Galadriel herself. I love Tolkien's names as well, I am named after the Rohan people, but I would use a different name that is still unique but not too wild, like Daeron or, while not a Tolkien name, I am quite fond of Meriadoc.

Some people are so ignorant. Sure, YOU may dislike the name, but other people may think it's beautiful. Since when has everybody agreed on one thing? Practically everything that's intersubjective is controversial. Just because you aren't a fan of it doesn't mean the name sucks. I've seen many commenters that have named their daughters/sons this name, and have received multitudes of compliments. Whenever someone shared a success story they'd automatically get downvoted. Like, what? Their opinions are suddenly hated upon just because you think the name sucks? And whenever someone makes a positive association with it, they also get downvoted?

Like sure. You can say "I don't like it". You can hate on the name, that's perfectly fine. Unfortunately for you haters, you also have the responsibility to ensure your hate doesn't cross a line. However, people can also say "I love it". You have the right to hate a name, just like others have the right to like one. It's their child, their life, and their opinion. You don't get to decide what they get to do.

To you Londons out there, ignore what they say. The name has nothing, NOTHING to do with you as a person. Hell, I'd rather be friends with a friendly kid named after a place like London than a selfish, snobby person named a person name, like Emily. And to the person who said you would never have someone named "London" operate on you, good luck surviving in this time and day. You'd rather have a novice physician named Lily operate on you than a famous, successful person named London? Ridiculous how ignorant people are in this time and day. So a name is supposed to define a person? Wow, to be honest, many people named names with sweet meanings like Genevieve and Sophia don't live up to their namesake.

And I'm sorry if I offended anybody, but if I did, you probably did too.
