I find it interesting how we categorize different naming styles, and particularly the imagery associated with different styles of names. Back on BNW, we used to discuss certain names as being "the little black dress," and I vividly remember Karyn once describing her taste as a "turquoise ball gown." So, inspired by that analogy, give us a list of names that best represent your style, and then answer the following (separate answers for boys and girls):
1. If your naming style were an outfit, what would it be? Why?
2. What about if your naming style were a flavor of ice cream? Why?
3. If your naming style were a character in a story, film, video game, etc., what kind of character would it be?
4. Give us another question to answer, and answer it yourself: If your naming style were a...? (Car? Vacation destination? House? Profession? Animal? Plant?)
If my style were an outfit, it would be a morning suit, complete with top hat, tails, silver-tipped walking stick and pocket watch—distinguished and formal, even a little antiquated and stuffy.If it were ice cream, it would be Vanilla Swiss Almond: classic and refined, but with a slightly eccentric (nutty) twist.If it were a character, it would be the Gentleman-Scholar.Girls: Juliet, Amalia, Felicity, Genevieve, Eveline, Marigold, Mirabel, Cecily, Aurelia, Rosamund, Beatrix, Elodie, AriadneIf my style were an outfit, it would be something out of a John William Waterhouse painting… probably this one:
If it were an ice cream flavor, it would be white chocolate-lavender: delicate, floral and somewhat decadentIf it were a character in a story, it would be the Dragon-Slaying Princess: unabashedly feminine and romantic, but also not about to trip over a trailing -ella or -ianaAnd a new question: If your naming style were a style of architecture, what would it be?Boys: I'm torn here between English Palladian and Collegiate Gothic. English Palladian is more the gentlemanly side of the style, and Collegiate Gothic more the scholarly.Girls: the French Renaissance châteaux of the Loire valley.
