Thoughts?

Yw! I knew instinctively how to spell Phaedra when I met her but I might have done a level class civ........geek!

Won't laugh at all. Considering ds share a name with a former prime minister, I'm in no place to judge!

DP wants Phaedra vita...

FriggFRIGG Sun 11-Nov-12 17:06:38

I said it was a long list blush

FriggFRIGG Sun 11-Nov-12 17:08:29

<realises there are loads of same initial names in there >

<cares not>

Phacelia Sun 11-Nov-12 17:10:22

Love it, it's perfect.

Can I also suggest you add 'Phacelia' to your list? grin Not really a name but ever since I chose it here I keep thinking what a great girl's name it would make. (It's a really pretty purple flower beloved by bees. Don't be put off by the fact that it's other name is scorpion weed or that it's grown as green manure)

Phaedra is gorgeous. It was an album by Tangerine Dream in the 70s IIRC. (Hippy prog rock stuff - I loved them!) Ariadne & Artemis are my faves though.

How can you have Loki and Humphrey on the same list? shock It's like saying that your fave foods are spam sandwiches and beluga caviar. Which is fine, except you have to choose just one of them when it comes to names!

FriggFRIGG Sun 11-Nov-12 17:12:50

I have....er...eclectic taste...

FeckOffWithYourXmasBollocks Sun 11-Nov-12 17:14:01

Christ! That's a long in! I read Ezma as Eczema! confused
I can honestly say, with the exception of Nell and Nancy, I don't like any of them!

FriggFRIGG Sun 11-Nov-12 17:14:24

How is Ariadne pronounced?

FriggFRIGG Sun 11-Nov-12 17:15:35

Fair enough,
I loooove Nell and Nancy but I don't think DP will...

Ok just had a quick squizz!

Mara is my all time favourite girls name! Dh has vetoed it though sad Mara means ocean in Gaelic, but death in many other cultures. That's what put him off.

Like della, Luna, fern (also on my list), merryn (mirren is on my list), torrin is pretty, but I know a boy torrin.

Actually, are we looking for both boy and girl names?

Phacelia Sun 11-Nov-12 17:15:59

Ar-ee-ad-knee

Ah-ree-ad-nay

FriggFRIGG Sun 11-Nov-12 17:16:58

Also...just to clarrify,my list is a mixed list,boys and girls names all mixed up.

I did wonder about wilbur .......

FriggFRIGG Sun 11-Nov-12 17:18:02

Oooh

<adds Ariadne to list>

amarylisnightandday Sun 11-Nov-12 17:18:08

I like Luna it's gorgeous. Jago is a bit cliche now.

FriggFRIGG Sun 11-Nov-12 17:18:17

grin

amarylisnightandday Sun 11-Nov-12 17:18:37

Awwww Wilbur - Charlotte's Web!

picnicbasketcase Sun 11-Nov-12 17:18:53

Never heard Breac or Broc before. Interesting.

Yay <preens>

Pick Mara for me.

FairPhyllis Sun 11-Nov-12 17:25:26

Phaedra??? Holy crap no. The only association anyone will have will be the mythological one. (It's fee-dra btw)

I like Maud.

BonzoDooDah Sun 11-Nov-12 17:30:04

I know a Phaedra - lovely name! Difficult to pronounce if you've never seen it but hey - people get over it.

amarylisnightandday Sun 11-Nov-12 17:31:26

cheers with Pom Poms Phaedra!!!!!!
