Say: Hi there.
Think: That is a beautiful name, but awfully big for such a little girl. It will probably suit her better in a few years.
Hello, this is my son Ian James and daughter Ella Jane.
Say: Nice to meet you!
Think: James and Jane are awfully close, and James seems like such a common middle name. Ian is okay, but Ella bores me.
Hello, this is my daughter Elspeth Juliet.
Say: Hi sweetie!
Think: I feel so bad for that child.
Hi, meet my son Theodore River
Say: Hi Theodore
Think: I wonder if his parents are Firefly fans?
Hi, meet my son Rupert Zachary
Think: I really want to love that name, but I just don't. I'm not that fond of Zachary, and I am torn on Rupert. It's still nice to hear, though.
These are my children, Penelope Alice and Peter Gray.
Think: Penelope Alice is so darling! I wonder if she goes by a nickname. Penny Alice would be so adorable! I love the name Peter, and while I want to love Gray, I just can't. The combo itself is nice though.
This is Bellamy Aurelia.
Say: Hi sweetheart!
Think: Great flow though neither of the names is my favourite, each has something appealing about it. However Aurelia does have a certain displeasing "oral" sound to it.
These are my twins Halli Magnolia and Piper Azalea.
Think: Not my style. Nice flow to both, and the flowery middle names are very cute.
This is my son, Sachin Mayur. It's an Indian name, pronounced Sa-chin May-Ur.
Say: Hi Sachin!
Think: I don't love or hate it. It's very unusual. I got Sachin right, but Mayur was a little harder. I wouldn't use it.
These are my daughters Sunday "Sunny" Fiona, and Rosalie Cynthia, along with their best friend, Nicolette "Nikki" Penelope.
Say: Hello girls!
Think: I'm not a fan of Sunday for a name. The names Nicolette and Penelope are not my favorites. I love Fiona though.
Hello, this is my son Thatcher Blue.
