Long-time reader, first-time poster! After a couple of decades as a name enthusiast, it is finally time to name a baby!
Our family name is a noun and a place-- Hi££. Some first names just sound too much like a location to me when they are used with our surname. For example, I would hesitate to name our baby Willow Hi££, Autumn Hi££, or Violet Hi££. Too literal, somehow. But I do like botanical names! I wonder if one my favorites, Rosemary, sounds odd with this last name. When I think of it as a plant, I hear the full name as a location-- a hill where rosemary grows. But when I think of it as a variation of "Mary," the place connotation disappears. What do you hear?
