Say: "Hello Canby! Such a unique name for a special little boy!"
Think: Very interesting choice, but any nickname a kid could come up with for him wouldn't be very cute, like Canny. Hollis must be a family name.
"Hello there, maybe your little one can play with my boys, Arthur Nicholas and Leon Victor? They like to be called Art and Leo."
Say: "Hello Honora and Mireille! Such beautiful ladies."
Think: Very unique names! I love how the first names kind of match in meaning, which is also empowering. Violet and Sophia help balance out the strong and rarely used names.
"These are my step-babies, Linnea Marcella, Tamsin Valeria, and Kissa Bernadette."
Say: Hi girls!
Think: Linnea and Tamsin are nice enough, not a fan of Marcella and Valeria however and I don't think they work as well as they could. I don't like Kissa at all. It is too similar to Kiss and Kissing. Bernadette however is lovely! And Kissa Bernadetta works.
This is my daughter Esther Bluebell, and her twin brother, Edmund Hartley Fox.
Say: Hello Esther and Edmund, what beautiful names.
Think: The first names are beautiful, but I'm not so sure on the middles. And how come Edmund gets two while his sister only gets one? That's a bit unfair.
This is Gemma Madeleine, her sister Tamsin Rebecca and their new little brother, Dominic Charles.
Say: Hey kids!
Think: Gemma Madeleine is nice enough, but not nearly as exciting a name as Tamsin or Dominic. I do like how you kept the middle names simple when you used unique names like Tamsin and Dominic, and although Gemma's rather boring, it is pretty. How do you pronounce Tamsin?
These are my twins, Allison Jane and Michaela Olivia. We call them Allie and Kaela.
