Think: That's quite a load!
Liora Marie Elizabeth - Liora is a very intriguing name that sounds rather nice. Marie Elizabeth sounds nice, but the only thing that comes to mind are filler middle names. Marie especially.
Georgiana Katherine Penelope - Georgiana Katherine is beautiful! But I think Penelope is a bit too...long? It doesn't fit in, although it is a pretty name.
Courtney Francescha Bethany - I never liked Courtney...I prefer Francesca spelled this way, but I adore Bethany (nn Bess or Beth)
Jennifer Hannah Josephina - Jennifer is pretty, but awfully dated and overused. Hannah is nice, nms, but still it's very nice. I prefer Josephine over Josephina.
Mauve January Vivianne - Love Mauve, and January is a guilty pleasure. I like Vivianne too, but spelled Vivienne. Mauve Janury Vivianne is a nice, if a bit long.
My cousin Emmeline Mireille and her mother Matilda Rosamund.
Say: Hello there!
Think: Emmeline Mireille seems like a bit of a tongue-twister to me for some reason, but I can't quite decide where it is exactly that I'm get tripped up. I like both Emmeline and Mireille a lot, though. Matilda Rosamund is absolutely gorgeous. I think that's a perfect combination.
These are my daughters Louisa Jane and Ione Marigold. We mostly call them Lua and Nonie.
Say: Hello! How cute! I love it!
Think: One delicate name and then one interesting and unique name...hm. Interesting.
Hi! Meet my daughter Mary-Lynn Grace
Think: I truly dislike this whole name.
Meet my daughter Rasia (rah-juh), named after my mom.
Say: Hello Rasia!!
Think: Sorry, but this name isn't my style at all. But it's great that it honors your mom :)
Meet my daughter Belle Naomi.
Say: Hello Belle!
Think: I like this! I've been thinking about Belle more and more lately, and Naomi makes a great middle.
These are my sons Leopold, Everett, Hallam, and Guy.
Think: I adore Leopold, like Everett, don't know about Hallam, and dislike Guy. It also seems a strange, but still functioning set of brothers that "work".
My twins, Ariadne and Alasdair, and my husband Rafferty who goes by "Raffy".
SAY: 'What lovely names! I've never met an Ariadne'.
THINK: Ariadne is nice, but a bit of a mouthful. I really love Alasdair, but they're rather overwhelming as twin names. I like Rafferty but not Raffy, which seems silly for a grown man.
Meet my little girl, Winona Mae.
Say: Hello there Winona!
Think: I love Winona right now! I like Mae, but I much prefer it as a first name. It doesn't really do anything for me in this particular combo. Lovely to meet a little Winona, though!
This is my son Lev Morgan and my daughter Ives Marielle.
Say: Hi kids!
Think: Lev isn't my style, but sounds good with the middle name. I don't like Ives Marielle.
Meet my twin girls Quintella Else and Reenie Anneliese and their guest from Ireland Murphy Órlaith.
