dogs, cats, fish, babies...
I've never been one to name cars or other inanimate things that I recall, but I am fascinated by the concept.
Many people name their cars. I think that's cool. and creative, which is always cool.
Because I love names so much, I kept a looooooooooong list of names I loved for babies. I knew full-well that I would never be able to use them all, but on and on I went.
I even went so far as to make a list of "ain't no way in hey-hey" names.
You know, exes and bullies from the past, that sort of thing.
In light of my recent pledge to make an effort towards being a positive force in the world, I will not share those names. ;)
But I thought it might be helpful for me to "let go" of a few of the names I won't be using. Like releasing a balloon into the sky and watching it float up, up, up, I am letting go. I was holding on too tightly, to the names and my secret Duggar wish. (That's a story for another time. I'm so over it.)
Anywho- here are some names I will let go of. Grab one. Use it. I'd be so pleased.
Girl Names I love but won't be using:
Olive and Ruby top the list. I LOVE them both!!
Violet and Rose are next. So feminine.
I knew a little girl with the name Rosalee. Just the name melted me like butter. So old fashioned. So precious!
I also love names with a little more funk to them, like:
Zoe, Izzy, Lola and Jules
As a younger woman I always thought I'd use Ashleigh, but when it came down to it, I wanted my girl to be named after someone, so I ditched Ashleigh. Go ahead, take it.
Boy Names I love but won't be using:
Any of the "er" names would come in first for me. I love them all!
Parker, Sawyer, Spencer, Tucker...
Then Irish names, like:
Keegan, Kiernan and Connor
Biblical names are favorites for me:
David, Joseph, Benjamin
When I was in college I had 2 goldfish named Roxy and Myra.
I used to live next to a mother-daughter set of Golden Retrievers named Molly and Maggie.
My son names all his animals after weapons and explosions: Blastoff, Knife...
If you had someone or something to name, what name would you use?
Do you have any names you want to let go of?
And if you are a person who names their car, please tell me! I want to know what it's name is!
There will be a giveaway here next week! Stay tuned!
