Okay, now I've been wondering which names are the most popular on the board since I've been a member of this delightful community, and I thought that this would be the most enjoyable way of finding out. So, basically, post your top five names for each gender [please limit yourself to five names for each sex!] and I'll start compiling the lists in a few days -- it should be ready by next week. I think it shall be interesting to find out which names are favoured the most by the members of this site. :D

Did that make any sense? If not don't be afraid to ask, I'll be happy to try and explain it better.

Edit: Please only post first names not combos. Thanks for questioning that Rose. :P

Okay, do you want first and middle names or just first?

I'll do combos just to be safe:

Lydia Jade
Keira Rose
Helen Olympia
Siobhan Grace
Monica Faith

(so if you just want firsts, my favs are: Lydia, Keira, Helen, Siobhan, and Monica)

Jacob Nolan
Alexander Helios
Cian Seamus
Simon Joshua
Owen Brady

(my first names for boys are different than my combos, though: Jacob, Adam, Cian, Seamus, and Simon)

Hope that's what your looking for

Wow that was really hard. I have way too many favorites to narrow it down to just 5, but that is as close as I'm going to get without going crazy.

Ohh, I'm happy you like 'em! Cate seems so.. simple, yet so different. I love the C :D

And I figured no one would like Esther ahah. It's considered a bit dated, I know. But I think it's just beautiful :P (Plus one of my two best friend is named Ester so I'm a bit partial)

Having never heard of the movie, I went to look up the synopsis on IMDB and.. Oh my god. Maybe it would've been better if I hadn't, LOL.
Creepy stuff!

I hope that's a positive association for you (:
I think about her, too. My best friend Ester was named after the Biblical queen as well-- Is it Ester or Esther in the English translation?


Anna, I love Elliott and Cohen!

Big thanks to those who've posted their top five, and to those who haven't: Please do. This needs full participation to work! It should only use up a minute or so of your time.

Mine are -- in no particular order,

Priska, Zayda, Miette, Delphi, Josephine
Edmund, Otto, Alexis, Nima, Hugo
