Eeyore004: I wonder if this is how Nora Ephron got her name!
selrays: brigid_fitch: Antimatter: brigid_fitch: According to Wiki, Emma was popular in the UK in the mid-60s/early 70s because of Emma Peel. Maybe it took a bit for Americans to catch onto the trend? Sort of how names "migrate" from upper class to middle class?Also a famous actress many kids grew up with this time: Emma Watson.All those potterheads grew up on her, and it's not surprising a few kids were named after her.Oh, I totally get that, but, according to TFA, the trend seemed to start in the mid-80s. Just trying to figure out what happened then to make that name jump. It's not an easy one like Madison, which came directly from Splash./I go to sci-fi cons--LOTS of Emmas.//Along with 20-something Xanders, Willows, Brents, Jean-Lucs, Marinas, Anakins, Amidalas.///Starting to see toddlers named Amy & Rory now.What is it with the name Rory anyway? I grew up with a male cousin named Rory and never thought anything of it until I was in high school and started watching Rory Gilmore grow up. Before the eleventh Doctor, I had no idea if it was a boy's or girl's name. So tell me: at the conventions, are the Rory toddlers boys?
GentDirkly: This farker is the father to be of an unnamed girl. Wife hates basically every name I suggest. She liked Isabella, but then I told her it was trendy due to a vampire book and now she doesn't like it. We're maybe thinking about Isabelle or Danielle or Gabrielle too. But she doesn't like these as much.Please suggest names for us. We're stumped. All I know is I don't like -son names like Madison and I'd prefer 3 syllables or less.
