Duana Names: A ‘Choose Your Own’ Adventure

Duana Posted by Duana at July 22, 2015 19:34:33 July 22, 2015 19:34:33

Hi Duana, I'm a trans woman in the process of transitioning. I'm trying to work out a name that starts with E or L (though not opposed to others!). I also have an interesting surname (Winter) that makes things difficult. I also want to shy away from more masculine names, and I like names that have a more feminine ring to them, such as names with the -ia sound. Full Article

Love the colour combination happening here. Pink that sometimes looks light purple and slashes of yellow. Beautiful. Just… the fit of the dress is a problem, a little? It’s Dior. And I wonder if it’s just a matter of pulling the halter up higher or whether the construction above the waist is just sh-tty. Full Article

I’m all for mixing prints. And these two prints are fine together, no problem. I just feel like there’s too much of the print on the bottom. Like if we could reverse the situation, and have the floral print on her body, and the chain link as the jacket, I feel like it would have been more visually pleasing. Full Article

Hi Hayley, A couple of years ago, I lost about 45 pounds by overhauling my lifestyle - I cut back on processed foods, increased my intake of good foods and started exercising on a regular basis - I started off with cardio, then eventually incorporated strength training into my routine. It took about two years in total, but I reached my goal weight. Full Article

Hi Duana This may be an unusual request in that we've already picked both of our names. My boyfriend and I ended on a stellar boy name after some dicey negotiating that included a serious bid from him for Hedwig (for a boy...). The girl name was much easier. My family has this awesome tradition of passing down maternal names. Full Article

Hi, My husband and I are hoping that we will be the beneficiaries of your name-nerd advice. We are expecting our second little one on August 8, 2015. We’re Asian and we somehow stumbled into a very lucky due-date! We don’t know if Baby #2 is going to be a boy or a girl. Our first child is a little boy who will be close to turning three. Full Article

Probably the best head of blonde hair I’ve ever seen. In person? It’s full and even and natural and you want to touch it, badly. Every blonde in film and television should be going to Diane Sawyer’s colourist.  Full Article

Hi Hayley, About two weeks ago, I gave birth to (for Lainey: spontaneous, no fertility treatments) twin boys totaling about 13 pounds of birth weight, by cesarean section. Prior to my pregnancy, I was very active, running half marathons, doing cardio cross training, playing tennis, and attending Pilates reformer classes. Full Article

Kate Beckinsale at The Mentalists press night in London. I would like to point out that she is NOT in the play. The dress? It’s fine. I’m sure some of you are in love with it. To me it’s not that hard. Kanye West’s wife wears a variation of it every other week. It’s tight and it’s white. Full Article
