Feature Friday: Gabby

Hey guys! I am still away and will be back in 1 day. Anyway it is Feature Friday time! This week I ask my friend and blog buddy if she would like to this week’s person. Of course she said yes! So this week is………Gabby! You may know her as from a few things, her formspring (LunaScarlett), her youtube (www.youtube.com/user/hpfreak54) , her blog (http://gabbymacsnameblog.blogspot.com/) and/or her listography (http://listography.com/GabrielleMarieJoane). You all need to go check out her stuff. They are amazing. So let’s get started in the interview.



Me: How did you get into baby names?
Gabby: I first got into baby names when I was around 6 or 7.  I began my (large) collection of stuffed animals and named them all (I had Blake, Brownie, Isabella, Jake, Isabella II...).  From there, it blossomed and I saw different names (mainly all 90s names) through school and my neighborhood.  Of course finding Formspring and name websites just made my hobby of collecting names an complete obsession.

Me: Love the picture! How old were you when you first started liking baby names?
Gabby: I was about 6 or 7 when I was interested but about 10 when the obsession started to come upon me.

Me: I was about the same way! What are your current favorite baby names?
Gabby: For girls, my top 5 are Aurora Jane, Luna Scarlett, Bellatrix Harper, Liviana Moon, and Freya Persephone.  For boys, my top 5 are Carlisle Jason, Jacoby Dallas, Draco Elijah, Lucius Avery, and Rowan Zackary.

Me: I love your names. If you remember, what were your first favorite baby names?
Gabby: My favorite names were Isabella Marie and Jacob Andrew between the ages of 6 and 9.  And then progressively became more...out there.

Me: My favorite name use to be Isabella too. Why did you decide to start making videos, blogging, and join formspring?
Gabby: I decided to make videos as soon as I got my laptop in '08 and have been addicted ever since.  I joined forming in November of 2010 just out of curiosity and not for name reasons.  I got bullied by anons and so I decided to try to vie away from that and look for people interested in names.  I think the first person to ask me a question was either Amelia (EverthingNames) or Krystal (thefarmerswife) but I'm not sure so don't trust me on that.  You actually inspired to get a blog because I felt that I had so many ideas for YT videos but didn't have time to record them so I just put them in blog posts. :)

Me: I'm so glad my blog has inspired you! What has been the most fun about making videos, blogging, and formspring?
Gabby: I can share my complete nerdiness for names because none of my friends are really that interested in names.

Me: I agree! What has been your favorite video, blog, and/or formspring question (rename, collages, etc.)  you have done?
Gabby: I love naming kids with initials or with certain guidelines.  Example, Nature first names and virtue MNs.  I love watching pregnancy videos on YT.  My current obsession is Rebe and TweedleTee10.

Me: They are so fun. Are you working on any blog post, videos, or listography list?
Gabby: oh boy yes!! Currently I'm working on my Batman movie review for my other Blog, my NFL baby name series for my name blog, I'm trying to gather more names for the ABC names (I'm on G), and I'm making a list to try to figure out character names for my HP fanfiction and novel and a list for girl first names to go with the MN Blue b/c I absolutely adore Blue on a girl.  Ya I think I have the rest of my summer cut out for me. Lol

Me: Wow! That is a lot. What do you love about baby names?
Gabby: I just love finding meaning behind things.  Plus it's really fun coming up with names for my HP fanfic and my novel because I do something called the "Rowling approach" where I go onto translator websites and type in a phrase i'd like to use and stem a name from that.  Or I find names that create a phrase (Juliet(te) Angela=Youhtful Angel...).  A great example of the Rowling approach is the main character in my novel.  Her name is Mauve Tirpse which comes from the French phrase "mauvais esprit" which means "bad spirit".  Ya I have way too much time on my hands.

Me: I love how you come up with names for your characters. What types of baby names to do like (ex. Trendy, vintage, etc.)?
Gabby: OMG I honestly don't have a set style.  I like all types of names.  As long as the name looks and sounds nice, I like it.  I'm guilty, though for being in love with all of the -ayden/-aiden/-aidan names.

Me: I'm the same way! When did you tell your friends and family about your love to baby names?
Gabby: The only 2 people in my family that know I like names are my mom and grandma but I think my dad is catching on.  A couple of my friends know and that's it.  All of them think it's weird.

Me: How can they think it's weird! How did/do your family and friends react to your love for baby names?
Gabby: Again everyone gave me looks like "Really?! Out of ALLL of the things in the world to be interested in, you chose baby names?" Of course I could care less.  Now they don't care at all.  They just think I'm a walking weirdo.

Me: awww They are very wrong! On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate your love/addiction/obsession for baby names?
Gabby: like 500000000.  It's insane.  My obsession with names is almost as big as my obsession with Harry Potter.

Me: That is very high but very true ;P What is the reason behind your formspring, youtube, and blog name?
Gabby: Formspring: My top combo, Aurora Jane, was taken as a name (in any form AuroraJane, Aurora_Jane...) so I resorted to my second favorite combo Luna Scarlett (stylized as LunaScarlett) for my username
Youtube: I made a YT account long before I started doing videos.  My name is hpfreak54.  hpfreak is clearly for Harry Potter and 54 is my grandpa's birthday (5/13) added up by month and date.  If that makes any sense.

Blog: The opinions one (notafraid2say) was put together from help by fellow Formspringers when I put out a poll as to which name to pick and this won.  My name one (gabbymacsnameblog)--I tried to keep it simple because I was bored so I made it and didn't want to put much thought into it.


Me: I like how you came up with the names. That makes sense. Do you have a favorite baby namer (YouTube, blog, formspring, etc.)?
Gabby: I loveeeee AnastasiaRuby on YT.  She always picks really cute names.  Oh I also love Bayli both on FS and YT (AvenueAsher and Bbumen)

Me: I love them too. Do you have a #1 fan on your videos, formspring, and/or blog or someone who you talk to a lot because of them?
Gabby: I don't think I do lol.  But if I talk to anyone a lot on FS it has to be Kara (DearMissKara) and Margo (xSleazy4Weasley) if that's what you mean :)

Me: What inspired you to make a blog, formspring, listography, and videos besides baby names?
Gabby: I got an FS just outta curiosity with no real intent on using it for baby names.  My listography is basically strictly for organizing names.  My blog is for fun series and names.

Me: We are down to our last 5 questions! Where do you find your baby names at?
com

Me: I like all of those places. Do you know anyone in real life that has a formspring, youtube, and/or blog?
Gabby: I know PrincessJulia37 on FS/RapunzelNames on YT in real life

Me: That's so cool that you know someone in real life! Random fact about you?
Gabby: Random fact....hmm.... I'm obsessed with playing online Bingo

Me: haha :) What did you think of this interview?
Gabby: I absolutely LOVE it!! Love you Ren!

Me: aww thanks. Love you too! Is there anything else you would like to add?
Gabby: I love all of my followers and viewers and I'm always here for you to talk.

Me: awww Thanks again for doing the interview.
Gabby: anytime Ren

So that was the interview. I had so much fun doing this interview and all of the other ones. Go check out Gabby’s youtube, blog, formspring, and listography. Comment below and tell me what you though. Bye for now :).

Formspring's Favorite Names

Hey Guys! I am still on vacation but I do have a blog post for you. This post is about my favorite names that are formspringer’s favorite names. I ask people on formspring to give me their favorite names and now I am going to tell you which names I liked from each person. I did get just first names and then I got some combos but I will only be telling you the first names that I liked. Also some names were repeated by different people and if I liked them I would just talk about them under the person who said it first. This idea came from Kinley (http://www.formspring.me/KyleandArlo). She also has blog (http://notablenames.wordpress.com/) and is going to do this post. As of right now she hasn’t put the post up yet but when she does I will link the post. So let’s get started.

Arlo and Juliet
I love the name Arlo and the only time I hear it is when she talks about it. Juliet is such a cute and girly name that I can see aging nicely. I do prefer Juliet spelled Juliette.


Matilda, Alice and Florence and Theodore, Ezra and Jude
Matilda is a great name and has been a favorite of mine for some time now. It has also been my favorite movie almost my whole life. Alice is such a sweet name and I love it. Florence is a new love of mine. I like how old ladyish it sounds.
Theodore is my favorite boy name right now. I just love it. Ezra has just started to grow on me. I use to hate the name but now I really love it. Jude is one of my top middle names. I also like it as a first name.


Fallyn and Tobin
I have always liked the name Fallyn and have just started to like that spelling. Tobin is a new name to me. I have known about the name Tobias but Tobin is so much nicer to me.

Adelie, and Rosella, and Asher and Rowan.
Adelie is such a cute name. I really love all of the Add- names. Rosella is a new name to me. I have heard her ask question about it before but now I love it.
Asher was one of my top names a couple of years ago and I still like it. Rowan is a name that I find to be very nice and cool.


Coralie, Talulah, January, Weston and Archer
Coralie is such a cute name and I really love it. Talulah is a favorite of mine and has some meaning behind it for me. January is a gp name and I am glad is loves it and is using it as a first name.
I love the nickname West and Weston is so much better than Wesley. Archer is a name I don’t hear very often and I like to hear it.


Bayli (AvenueAsher)
Clara and Celeste and Atlas and Simon
I love the name Clara. It is so sweet and it reminds me of a polite little girl. Celeste is a cool and spunky name that on really uses.
Atlas is in my top 10! I hardly ever see someone liking this name and I am glad she does. Simon is one of my favorite s names for boys. I like the sound of it.


Kaitlyn (Kaitlyn94Marie)
Avia and Declan
I love the name Avia and all of the other Av- names. Declan is so cute and I once know a boy named Declan. Avia and Declan make a great sibset too.


Gemma and Blair and Atticus and Walker
Gemma is such a great name. I love it and can see her naming her baby Gemma. Blair is a spunky cool name that I can see on a popular girl.
Atticus is in my top 20 and I wish more people used it. Walker reminds me of cowboys for some reason haha :). I still love it though.


Dayton (DaytonsNames)
Price and Sebastian and Poet and Ever
I love her naming style. Price is such a great name and I first heard it from her. Sebastian is a nice long name. I tried to get my brother to use it as his conformation name. I really like it.
Poet is a gp name for me. I just love the sound of it. Ever is one of my favorite 1 syllable names for girls.


Lyndsey (LNR87)
Isabella and Hendrix, Kendrick and Kipp
Isabella was one of the first baby names that I ever liked. I still like it. I love names with x in them and Hendrix is one of them. It is another name that I find spunky. There was a player on the Phillies with the last name Kendrick and when I first heard it I was like how cool is that name!


Saki (SakiHeart)
Averell, Circe, Skylark, Roanna, and December, and Storm, Emrys, and Falcon
I love Av- naems and Averell is one of them. It is such a cool name that you never hear and like that. Circe sounds so cool. Saki is the first time I heard it and I have really liked it since. Skylard is cool and I like how you can get Sky as a nickname without using Skylar. Roanna is an amazing name. I like the ro sounds and how it ends in anna. December is a gp for me and I love how she had it as a first name.
Storm is one of my favorite nature names. It is something I would love to hear on a little boy. Emrys is a name that I have really started to like over the last couple of days. I really like how it sounds. I love the name Falcon and for me it is an honoring name.


Alena (alenajingle)
Theron and Keturah
I love the way Theron sounds. I think it could be up there with the popular names. Ther is a great nickname. Katurah is one of my favorite k names. I like how exotic it sounds. It has a little edge to it.


Megan (xNutMegx56)
Maxim, Garrett and Darcy
Maxim is a great name. You can use the nickname Max but still have the cool edgy sound of Maxim. Garrett is common favorite name of mine. I love the nickname Rhett.


Nell, Clementine and Warren
Nell is a great name. I prefer it as a nickname other than a first name but it is still great. I like Clementine is a very cute name. I like how long it is and how not many people use it. Warren is a great name, although it makes me think of Legally Blondes.


Stevie (lepetitviolet)
Violet and Callum
Violet is such a sweet name and I can see it on all ages. I do think of the Charlie and Chocolate Factory and when they say “Violet your turning Violet!”  when I hear this name. Callum is a very nice name. I really like it and can’t wait to meet a baby named this ;P.


Blake, Isla and Dahlia
Blake is a name that I picture on a popular boy, one that has all the friends and is cool. I really like it but it is being used for girls more. Isla is probably one of my favorite I names. It sounds so cool and makes me think of movie stars. Dahlia is so cool. I really like it and it is a little better than Delilah.


Hugo, Apollo, Hazel, Athena, and Ophelia
Hugo is in my top 10. I love it and prefer it over Hugh. Apollo is in my top 20 and I love the grand feel it has. It is such a strong name too. Hazel is one of the names I hate almost my whole life. I now love it and actually like seeing it. Athena is my number 1 girl name. I love it so much. Ophelia is in my top 10. I really like it but it has been going down on my list because pronouncing it is a little hard for me for some reason. I still really love the name.


Gabby (LunaScarlett)
Aurora, Liviana, Bellatrix, Nerissa, Jacoby, Draco, and Nolan
I love the name Aurora. I remember hearing it and falling in love. Aurora suits Gabby so well. Liviana is one of my favorite L names. It is so pretty and feminine. Bellatrix is an awesome name! I love that it ends in an x. Nerissa is so cool and exotic to me. I just love it.
Jacoby is so cool sounding. I love it as an alternative to Jacob. I love Draco! I hate the name Drake though which is kind of strange. This is another name that suits Gabby so well. Nolan has been a favorite of my for a couple of years on. I really like the sound of it and can picture it on a cool, popular boy.


Cheridel (cheridel)
  • http://listography.com/cheridel
Lyric and Cody
I love the name Lyric. It sounds so pretty and kind of nature-y. I just love saying it. Cody is something that has been growing on me lately. I use to not like it but no I really do. It's a nice name. 



So that is all of the names and people. I had fun looking at everyone’s names and finding names that I liked out of them. I hope you liked this post and don’t forget to comment and tell me what you thought. Thanks to all of the people who gave me their names. Bye for now :).
