As you learned from my last post, I am a name hater.
If you are an American and didn't name your child after a major character in the bible or classic literature, then I probably don't like their name.
I also hate off-spellings. I love the name Jane. I hate the name Jayne. Don't care for Jaine either.
That said, I do have a handful of "weird" names that I really like.
Maud - Actually, Maud would have been fourth after Aline, Claire & Molly.
Maybe this is why I don't have girls.
Cary - I tried and tried and tried to get Greg to agree to a Cary. It is not either a girl's name.
Kelly - I went to high school with a boy Kelly. And he was dreamy. It is NOT a girl's name! I mean, yes, girls can be names Kelly. It's a nice name for a girl. But it's also a great name for a boy.
Atticus - My friend almost named her son Atticus, but she named him Holden instead. At least Holden is from another of my favorite books. Holden is a cutie. And yes, I like his name. It has a meaning. If she named him Joldyn? She would be out of the inner circle.
That's about it.
