    With a middle name that's short, androgynous and unconventional I think you need a longer first name. Two monosyllabic names sound very choppy (i.e....

    Well, it will fit in well enough in the current naming climate. I think it sounds a bit like Dresden (city in Germany that was bombed to oblivion).

    I like Taj, which is the authentic transliteration of the Arabic name. It means 'crown' as you might know, and has a laid-back vibe.

    It's so unusual that even a very minor famous bearer like Conway Twitty might be the first association. But is has a hip vibe.

    Aha, that explains it. If you're on progesterone supplementation you'll have quite light periods. It's the same as a woman on a Mirena or Provera.

    This is the first time I have ever messaged anybody so I might sound a little weird and I apologize if I do. However, on one of your older posts when you were stating some names you liked for your little girl, you posted one and I fell head over hills for it.

    Photini. Even though it kind of sounds like a mixed drink, I thought it was beyond adorable and I was wondering, what kind of middle name would you place with a name like that? I've tried ALL kinds of names from common like Hollis, Bonnibel, and Lark to the extreme like Cosette and Pearl. Nothing fits. Since you know of this name, I thought it'd be a question for you. (:
