Five-Name Friday: Girl Name Like Juniper, Opal

five name friday, girl name

You’re at the county fair with some friends, waiting in line to ride the Ferris wheel. Just behind you is another group of friends, and in this group is a nice lady who happens to be pregnant. The two of you chat for a few minutes. Just as the ride starts slowing down to let people off, she mentions that she still can’t think of a name for the baby. Then she tells you the gist of what she’s looking for:

Looking for a girl’s name that goes well with Juniper and Opal. Bonus points if it starts with a T!

“Do you have any suggestions?”

You’re a name-lover, and you could potentially give her dozens of suggestions on the spot. Your group is up next, though, so you only have time to give her five baby name suggestions before you get on the ride.

But here’s the fun part: Instead of blurting out the first five names you come up with (which is what you’d be forced to do in real life) you get to press a magical “pause” button, brainstorm for a bit, and then “unpause” the scenario to offer her the best five names you can think of.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you brainstorm:

  • Be independent. Decide on your five names before looking at anyone else’s five names.
  • Be sincere. Would you honestly suggest these particular baby names out loud to a stranger in public?
  • Five names only! I will replace all names beyond the first five in your comment with random words.

Finally, here’s the request again:

Looking for a girl’s name that goes well with Juniper and Opal. Bonus points if it starts with a T!

Which five baby names are you going to suggest?
