How Would You Describe?

I am SO SORRY for the long break in posts. I guess going over names again and again, trying to find the right one for the boy just takes a lot out of me at times. πŸ™‚ And no, we are not close to choosing a name quite yet. 😦 Anyway, I wanted to post to keep things going, so I thought it would be fun to do a “baby name survey.”

There is a cool name book that took a survey asking people what they thought of when presented with a name. I really enjoy looking through the book and always wanted to do a little mini-survey of my own.

When I say the following names, how do you picture the child/adult?Β  What does he/she look like?Β  WhatΒ are his/her abilities, temperament, and/or characteristics? Any description you can think of would be great! (The names below are just a random selection of names. And BTW, I really need the new edition of The Baby Name Wizard to come out soon… my copy of the first book is looking really shabby right now.)

Allegra
Ashlyn
Charlotte
Elodie
Gemma
Ivy
Jocelyn
Maisie
Piper
Samantha
Tatum
Willow

Alden
Dexter
Ellis
Grady
Holden
Jasper
Jedidiah
Miles
Pierce
Seth
Tyler
Walker
