MaisieMaisie is a nickname for Margaret. When I first fell in love with the name I was stuck between the name Margaret with the nickname Maisie or just Maisie. I settled on Maisie because I just don't love Margaret as much. I think this name is very English sounding.
FayeI am not sure when, where, or how I fell in love with the name. Faye is short and sweet. She would do great paired with a long middle one. I haven't found one I like very much. It means fairy in English.
DaphneDaphne always use to remind me of Scooby Doo, one of my favorite cartoons as a child. It means laurel in greek. My name is Lauren and means laurel as well. Daphne could be a connection to me. And no I didn't know this before I feel in love with the name.
SallySally is the name of my grandmother. Well she was actually Sarah but went by Sally. I had never thought to use her name and had always had plans to use a form of Sarah in the middle name spot to honor her. Over time (and thanks to Alexia Mae's love for the name) I fell in love with the name Sally. Now I just can't get enough of the name.
PrimroseI have a very special connect to the saint, St. Therese, and she uses roses to show that she heard you're prayers. I love the nickname Prim so much and I think Primrose is so whimsical and girly. It means first rose in Latin.
MargotMargot is another diminutive/nickname of Margaret. I never realized how many nicknames for Margaret I liked until I made my top 10 list! Margot will always remind me of the movie Christmas Vacation.
GeorgiaGeorgia is such a sweet, southern sounding name. It's a place name with a few nicknames, Gigi, Georgie, and Gia. This name has special meaning to me because my boyfriend and I met/started talking at a Florida Georgia Line concert.
AdelaideAdelaide sounds so elegant and beautiful. I envision a princess with an adventurous side. My favorite part about the name is the nickname Lady. I am not a fan of the nickname Addie and was shied away from the name until I discovered the nickname Lady. Ada would also be a cute nickname.
PippaI first heard the name Pippa after William and Kate got married and we were introduced to Kate Middleton's sister. My thought was how spunky and upbeat the name was. For a really long time I tried to find a name that I loved to use Pippa as a nickname but didn't find anything I liked. I finally settled on Pippa as her own. It doesn't sound like a nickname very much so I was happy.
IrisIris is a new name to my list. To be honest I never liked the name before recently but after hearing it over and over I really liked it. This is one of the few flower and I names I like. The name has an unique sound and doesn't end in an A or lee sound like a lot of girl names.
I hope everyone enjoyed learning what my favorite names were. Its so fun to explain why I have a love for a name even though often times there is no reason I love the names. Next up I am going to work on middle names for each of my top 10 girl and boy names.
I have a question for everyone. What would you like to see me blog about? I know I have fallen off the blogging train but I would like to start posting a few times a month if I can. If you have any ideas feel free to comment or email me!
