Name theory

Is the resurgence in old fashioned names due to the fact that everyone, like me, reads the deaths column in the paper for inspiration?

Oh yes I think you're right...I sought inspiration from an Australian Graveyard when I was first preggers...nothing doing though...I do believe the best I came up with was Constance and it never got the go ahead. Good luck, any leads thus farly?

My cousin just named his son Arthur. Lovely. :)

But for a girl liking Anahera, can be Ana for short - means 'Angel' in Te Reo. Love the way it rolls off the tounge.

Good luck with the choosing :)

Henry, Louis, Sophie, and Eleanor are all quite popular here at the moment.

I was way ahead on that craze 5 years ago when I named my cat Sophie.
