Why do you start liking names? Is it because you like the sound of the name? Or because you met someone you like with that name? Or do you just use names because they are in the family? If you have any children, what made you choose the names?
I see a pattern in the names I like. Usually it is just the sound of the name. Sometimes it is the meaning. If I know someone in real life with a certain name, I'm actually less likely to love the name even if I like the person lol.
Likewise, if a name becomes too trendy or popular, I start liking it less even if I loved it before. That happened with Gabrielle, Isabelle, Emma and Sophia.
Its usually the sound of the name, sometimes its the meaning. Or someone will bring the name up and I'll start to love it over time... Most of the time though, the m/n's for me are already set because its always a family name.. I just have to decide which one sounds best w/ the name.
W/ my DD, I had her name on my list for a while but was never set on it. Then when I had her, SO brought it up and I loved it for her. Her m/n was always gonna be Lynn, its a family name.
