Quoting mαkαnαni:" Where?"


The book of baby names I got from my mom, it's listed Afton in the girl sections with alternate spellings next to it, "Aftin, Aftan & Aftyn"

Ugh. It's a place name which means it has a particular spelling. I think names--especially words and places used as names--should be spelled correctly. JMO.

I like Nora best. Lucy is ok. Afton/ Aftyn is just odd/ awkward sounding to me ....so I do not like it

I like Lucy. It's one of my favorite names for a girl. I also really like Afton. I don't like the spelling Aftyn. I know it's not made up, and it's a beautiful name, but I feel like that spelling is too similar to a lot of other spellings of made up names. It's unfortunate that people giving their kids stupid names has ruined perfectly fine names for me. But, the more I look at Aftyn, I think I just really don't like how it looks on its own. Nora is nice but I remember a lot of people mentioning that name for upcoming babies when I was pregnant this time last year.

I LOVE Lucy and Nora is a stunner.

I don't think you'd be happy with this name if you're trying to avoid popular or overused. Granted this actual name won't be overused in your kid's class, but there are a ton of names that sound like it right now.
