Arabella Mansfield has a nice rhythm to it, but I like her birth name better. Wonder why she chose Mansfield? A play on words?

I think the name Golda/Golde is more likely to be Yiddish in origin than English.
I love Malcolm and Archibald, they are super cute as sibling names too.

@ mill1020, Mansfield was her married name. Although it does make a good play of words.

Very appropriate list, my grandmother was born in May and her name is Mary Nell.

Arabella is gorgeous (plus a subtle HP reference), as is Florence! I can’t quite decide if I do or don’t like Hunter, but Archie is such a cute nickname! Not sure at all about Archibald (or Archer). And talking of April showers; first day of May started with a nice bit of rain.

Cool. I have the same taste as two of my favorite actors. My son’s name is Malcolm.

I know that, for bands, there is a band called Florence and the Machine, as far as the name Florence goes. For the name, Mary, a lot of girls were named after the Virgin Mary in the Christian religion. For Archibald/Archie, there are Archie comics and there was a show called “Archie’s Weird Mysteries.”

Archibald is ugly ugly ugly. Unusable. Prefer Archer or just Archie by itself.
Arabella is lovely.
