How Would You Describe? - #1

I did this exercise once on my old blog (four years ago!) and loved the (limited) comments I received. Here's another attempt with the hope we can get more opinions!

The New Baby Name Survey Book is the compilation of a survey asking adults what they think of when presented with a name.  I know some parents worry about what people will think when they hear their child's name... "That's the name of a nerd" or "That's the name of a snob."  While I am still of the mind that your child will make the name you give him or her, it's still interesting to see how people view a name.  But remember, no matter what, your child is whoever he or she is... the results of any survey will never influence or change that.

When I say the following names, how do you picture the child/adult? What does he/she look like? What are his/her abilities, temperament, and/or characteristics? Any description you can think of would be great!

Adelaide
Betsy
Eloise

London

Brooks
Colin
Finn

Sebastian
