    I don't love Vera, but objectively I don't see any problem with using it next to Maeve. Them both having V in them doesn't bother me at all.

    I think Belle can come from so many names that whether your mom immediately takes this to be an honour name will depend on how closely she associates the name Isabella with her lost daughter. If she...

    Gemma Rae, written down, reminds me a little too much of gamma rays. I do love Gemma, though. Gemma Pearl would be stunning! I like Lyra Celeste really well, too - the sharp Lyra is softened by the...

    Is Maya overused?

    I have trouble figuring out how much use names get in Canada, where I live - as far as I can tell, we don't have an equivalent to the US's SSA list, so I base some of my impressions of names'...

    Ahhh I'm going to break the pattern here! I do love Gemma as a name, but if you were to yell them across a playground, I think Gemma would sound prohibitively similar to Bennett. And I don't know if...

    I'm Canadian and my guess (based on Saoirse Ronan explaining that her name is pronounced "SER-sha, rhymes with 'inertia'") is that Saorla is pronounced SER-la. If so, I do think it's a nice name, and...

    I like Juliette (this spelling), but I really love Georgia - it feels more versatile to me. Georgia Katherine would be lovely, and Georgia Finn works well, too.

    I imagine they'd survive, but to my ear, they are too close for sisters. Clara would sound much better with Noah, Sophie, and Stella IMO.

    I think Rue works as a nickname for Rowan. Honestly I think you could get away with it with pretty much any "R" name or any name with a strong "ooh" sound in it - like Louise, Julia, Lucia, and so on.

    Maeve came to mind first, but I don't know whether you're only looking for names with "ae" as a diphthong or just any names with "ae" in them?

    In addition to just using a lot of French names, it's quite common in Quebec to hyphenate names, especially girls' names. You see names like Marie-Eve and Anne-Sophie a lot. Just anecdotally I can...

    Joie is the French word for "joy", pronounced kind of like "jwah", so I'd heavily recommend using the Joey spelling.

    I love Josie as a nickname, so I'd go with that if I had a girl with any name...

    I have trouble wrapping my head around Skylar and Skyla being pronounced the same (I'm Canadian so I say them differently). Either way, Skylar looks more complete to me and Skyla looks abbreviated or...

    It's usable for sure, in the sense that people use it and it's fine, but I skew more toward sharing your concern. It's true that when babies born now are adults, CEOs' names will be the names that...

    I don't really get the appeal of LJ when Lydia is such a great name to begin with, but there's nothing wrong with nicknaming a girl LJ.
