    Marina. There is too much spelling/pronunciation confusion with Amaia/Amaya and Reina sounds like rain. Sorry for being blunt, but I do love Marina!

    I like Arden, but Sidelle sounds made up to me (that's just my impression) - I like Annabel Arden, or Isobel Arden. For the Sid sound, there is...

    ciottolo replied to a thread We have a son in Birth Announcements
    I have met a little Kainoa before (pronounced k-eye-NOE-uh) and thought what an unusual name it was! Congratulations.

    Fenella is the only one I can think of which isn't featured in the exhaustive list above! I like Thomasina nicknamed Maisie though, interesting idea.

    I like Margaret nicknamed Margot, but I'm all for options if you like the full name just as much. By the time the potential teasers are old enough to...

    I wouldn't, but since it's a popular name anyway, you could get away with it. If it were something like Niobe, it would be a different matter...

    Thank you very much!
    I truly love them, but I am biased We get some incredibly odd looks, especially about Mr. Bugsy, but once people get to know us they always agree that they fit perfectly on our boys. Changing Jem's name from Thatcher, was the best decision we have ever made!
    Thanks again, it's always lovely to receive such nice feedback.

    Thank you so much too, ciottolo! I do love literature even though I'm not as well-read as many Berries seem to be... Yes, it's quite clear I love Mr. Darcy, isn't it? I'm actually not familiar with Tristan and Iseult, just heard of it- I actually heard the name from the King Arthur legends, there's a Sir Tristan. I'll have to look it up. Literary connections always make names even more special and beautiful for me. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks that!

    The names in your signature are gorgeous! Fitzwilliam is one of my favourite names, and I love Roselaine, Helena, Iseult, Ophelia, Guinevere, Altair, Thiern... And love your profile pic- looks like such a powerful and strong woman.
