    Rosemary and Beatrix are long term favorites of mine, and I voted for Rosie. I love Winnie too! I'm usually more traditional but Winslow IS pretty winsome, and it fits well with Rocky. They're all...

    My experience of it has been in the middle, but as a whole saint's name: like Mary St. Michael or Catherine Emma St. James, eg. Super old-school and very religious.

    Personally, it feels ok by...

    I'm not opposed to nicknames as given names - I have one! - but I wouldn't use Bobby as a girl's first name myself. My sister picked my name, and I hated my name as a child although I'm okay with it...

    My first thought, if you want it: before I read the post, my guess was that it wasn't pronounced the same as Zoe, because I figured the X spelling was supposed to mean it was pronounced differently....

    I only know it from Mercer Mayer, a male author who wrote these Little Critter books that are fairly popular. I'd call that a positive association.

    It always had a kind of loopy or daffy feeling to me for no good reason. I almost think there must have been some character like that, because I don't know anyone named Belinda. But it's also a nice...

    Rosie - sounds the same except for swapping the "oy" sound for an "o" sound.

    jacklynrose had some great suggestions. If I were you I would save the final decision until you learn what her name is, so you can incorporate one of the sounds or syllables into her new name, keep...

    I love Edith, so simple and old-fashioned. With a monosyllabic last name, I prefer a three-syllable middle name. You could either go vintage to bring out that aspect of Edith, or more modern to make...

    The only one I'm not sold on is Maxen, but that's because it reminds me of those boy names where the parents choose it based on the nickname they want, then add an -n to the end (like Chasen or...

    You know, Caelyn isn't my style but I don't think there's anything wrong with it. It's one of those names that people have spelled so many different ways - Kaelin, Kaylin, Kailynn, etc - that it's...

    I loved that story as a kid! Any of the Irish Kil- place names, like Killarney or Kilkenny, might work. Camilla has most of the same sounds, too.

    Audrey, for sure. I wouldn't use Eleanor because of the shared -or ending. There could come a time when the kids decide to go by Eleanor and Theodore, at which point the nicknames don't help you.

    Funny, my first thought was Ailsa, too! I also second Eilish. Some of these are based on Scottish places or surnames, not just traditional girl names, based on Maebry:
    Iona
    Ainsley

    I love Rosie and Winnie anyway, and it's a bonus that they fit so well with your girls' names. I wouldn't use Allie because it shares the A--ie of Annie and the -llie of Millie. Annie and Millie...

    Anna Louise is a true classic, and packs a lot of options and personality into one small name. Even though Anna is more popular than Annabel, Annabel feels trendier because it had a big upswing...

    It is quite popular where I live, now whether or not that's a bad thing is another issue. It fits your set very well, as do all of your other choices. I'd avoid Cora with Colt though, maybe swap it...

    I'll admit it. I read Reine as Rain. But since your user name is mommy to MANY, I bet you have at least a few -ine girls already, so that's a clever way to keep your theme while making the name stand...

    Peridot Junia seems pretty perfect, with the more straightforward sounds of Peridot balanced with the feminine Junia. If you like initial nicknames, I like J names in the middle. P.J. is cute, but...

    Attika is forever connected to the Attica Prison Riots for me. Yes, there will be some people who haven't heard of it, but it was the deadliest prison riot in U.S. History and the subject of several...

    Cool theme! I've always loved Johanna. Iva and Vana are some nice, more exotic choices. Zana is similar to Zanna, but I'd say it ZAH-na instead of ZAN-a, which is a bit less pharmaceutical.

    I think a one-syllable name is a nice change in your set. I like Laine or Lane, but not Lain. Reminds me of the Gilmore Girls character - a positive association. Laine sounds quite feminine to me,...
