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.
Say: Hi, Miranda!
Think: Lovely name for a lovely girl with good nickname possibilties...Mira for a girly girl, Randi for a tomboy.... like, like, like....
Meet my daughter, Mayana.
Say: Hello there!
Think: I've never heard the name Mayana before. I could see her going by either Maya or Ana. Its really a pretty name.
Meet my boy/girl twins: Mary-Campbell Lana & Jude Lysander
Say: "Hey there kids! What darlings."
Think: Mary-Campbell doesn't make much sense to be paired together, and really its just pretty plain and kind of awkward to all say together. Say it out loud and it almost sounds like Mary-Campbellana. Jude Lysander is okay, but I've never been a fan of Lysander and Jude I've never thought much of. Mary and Jude are both very classic pairings.
"These are my lovely girls, Zelda Fiametta and Blithe Philomena."
Say: Nice to meet you both! Gorgeous names for gorgeous girls, no doubt.
Think: I love those middles for sisters! I've never personally loved Zelda, but I can see it working on the right person (like Robin William's daughter!) I've always loved Blythe, and the Blithe spelling is quite lovely as well. :)
"I would like to introduce you to my daughter, Truett Sarah"
Think: reminds me of Tru Calling, but overall I just don't like the name
Meet my daughters Miuccia and Jasmina
Say: Hi girls.
Think: How do you even pronounce Miuccia? Looks made up and a bit like the word Mucker to me, like in the slang 'me old mucker'. I don't mind Jasmina, but I prefer Jasmine.
These are my sons, Rory Christopher and Toby Alexander.
Say: Hey boys!
Think: Rory will forever be a girl's name for me after watching Gilmore Girls. But Rory Christopher is a really nice name. The pairing of something trendy with something traditional is always one of my favorites. Toby for me always sounds like a dog's name, I always envision a faithful hunting hound growing old with his master. I have no idea why. But Toby Alexander sounds lovely.
Meet my boys: Arden Cole & Isaac Clive
Say: Hi Arden, Hi Isaac!
Think: The only name I don't like is Clive. Arden Cole isn't a bad combo but I like both names separately. Isaac is just a great name overall.
Meet my daughters; Rhosyn Meredith and Tesni Gwendolyn.
Say: Hi girls!
Think: Interesting names. Never heard of either first name before, but I like how they chose a more common middle name to pair with it. I find both names though, are a bit hard to say.
(sorry, I'm asking these names again, because when I asked them last there was confusion and they were skipped and I really want to see what people say! But this time I added on Emily.)
Hi, meet my daughter Allison Jane and her best friends Michaela Olivia and Emily Nicole. We call them Allie, Kaela and Em though.
