Oh, I really like Stephen! When I focus on it, I can picture an English schoolboy or a scholarly type of man. I think it's because I'm familiar with an Episcopal church called St. Stephen's, so that...
Willa for sure! It complements Susanna very well. Both will have classic but unusual and distinct names, and are unlikely to share with many classmates.
Second place, Elizabeth. It's just so...

I'm suddenly charmed by Easter for a girl. It feels bright and happy, and it passes the, "Would I like being named this myself?" test. I'd only use it if I had an April/Easter-time...

I love Coralie. I'd be tempted to go with another gently French or "euro" feeling name. Ideas:

I like Violet best, followed by Scarlett.
Thanks @felicitysmoak! Cyrus is really growing on me. I don't dislike Pearl, either, but it also feels a little "retro" when we have no family connection to it.
@ashleyjuliette-- Oooh, Oleander...
My mother dreamt last night that I had boy-girl twins.
I'm not pregnant at the moment, nor even trying, though I'm engaged and my fiance and I have begun discussing it. We're thinking in two...

Ah, such a tough choice! My usual go to would be Rose (my screenname is not my first name), or Rosetta/Rosamund.
But lately I've been crushing on a family name on my partner's side-- Judith. I...

Thanks everyone! These give us a lot to think about. I particularly like the Thor-related suggestions. Unfortunately Toby/Tobias oz out bc my partner had a lousy colleague by the name :(

Hi all, my partner recently expressed an interest in boy names that start with T (for honor reasons) and I'd like to find more to suggest to him. He's very supportive of my name nerdiness, but has...
Ramona is great, and I'm a firm believer that literally anything is OK as a middle name.
Maxen... not so much. It looks very masculine, made-up, and will be dated by the whole pack of -en early...
I really like Béla! In theory.
But...I wouldn't it as my name if I were a boy in the USA. Two exceptions that would maaaybe work: if I was growing up in a very cosmopolitan city (NYC- especially...
Katherine definitely offers the best options in terms of many nicknames... Kat, Katie, Kit, Kitty, Kathy, Callie, Kitsy...
I would also imagine that the "Ka" and "T" sounds are...
Hi! I understand your impulse. Your surname sounds relatively easy to find first names for, too.
Arela- this name is one letter away from the word "areola". I would say don't do...
Scarlett for sure. It's the most classic.

Also just to be clear: I actually agree with O'Donnell's liberal/progressive politics-- but I know many people don't, or find her inflammatory, and I wouldn't want to burden my kid with her as an...

Just to be clear, Rosie is part of my screen name because it's been my most consistent favorite girl's name for years.
That said, it recently came to my attention that for a lot of...

What about Wilhelmina Clinton? Or Wilhelmina Clint? I tend to be a bit strict about honor names (unless you're Jewish/Ashkenazi) and really think it's best to keep as close to the original as...
How terrible. My condolences to her family and friends, if they're reading this.
I can only assume nobody really looks at the "Everything But Names" section of the forum, which is why I'm the...
Thanks for all these thoughts and insights, everybody! You've made me love the name even more, and I think it's inching towards the top of my list... now much convince fiance (who prefers short names...
lumen! you're right, I think, about the -mund ending. Maybe that's it. I can't think of any other female names that end in -mund...few even end in -nd (Rosalind? Diamond...?)
I'm so glad you like it ashthedreamer! I really like it too. It's funny you have 9 born in 2013-- are you looking at the SSA txt files files downloaded in a zip from their website? They're titled...
...is way rarer than I expected. Neither name even appears on the SSA Beyond the Top 1000 lists for 2013, meaning neither was given to more than 5 girls last year. Rosamund was given to 9 in 2012,...
Me! I'm not into it at all. But I never have been. It's always seemed trendy and not very substantial.
Both Lillie and Elodie are cute, but Lillie maybe goes better with Josie in terms of style. Josie is sort of down-home, country, vintage, cozy, and timeless, whereas Elodie is more...
