I also once had a rabbi tell me that "LEE-uh" is a goy butchering of a Hebrew name...not sure I agree with him, but it's something you might want to consider.

Nice try. My parents are European Jews. Within their communities, Leah is pronounced LAY-uh. It's a more unusual pronunciation, but not incorrect. Educate yourself.

YES YES I DO. My name is Leah, pronounced LAY-uh. I'd say it's pronounced correctly about 2% of the time. This has been a lifelong frustration and I have frequently contemplated changing the...

You seem to like stylish, feminine names with French flair.
Valentina: No name is totally nickname-proof, and Valentina lends itself more easily to nicknames than most. If this is something you...

I appreciate your interest in unique names -- you've definitely come to the right place! I understand why you like Tsunami: it's a striking, distinctive name with a strong meaning. However, I agree...
I'd switch up some of your middles -- Georgia Blaise and Ramona Jane would make stunning combinations!
Rafe: like, though prefer Rafael
Rupert: like in theory, dislike in practice
Rufus: like in theory, dislike in practice...
Katherine and Juliet (sorry, can't pick!)
Eleanor (it works much better with the other names on your list)
I'm also on the K-hate bandwagon, though with the usual exceptions of Katherine of Kate.
I'll list the letters I tend not to like, along with any exceptions that (dis?)prove the rule.
Ernest - 2
Evelyn - 3
Lazarus - 4
There are probably going to be a lot of repeats on this list.
William "Liam" Kit
Theodore "Theo/Teddy" Max
Lachlan "Lock" Colm
Irving "Ving" Clarke

If you don't care what people think, why ask what they think?
I absolutely would.
As for allegations that respondents aren't being open minded, check out the names in some of these...

None of these are unisex except the noun and nature names.
Kieran: boy (seriously?!)
Carson: boy (it has 'son' in it!!)
Rowan: prefer it on a boy

Excellent question! This is something I've thought a lot about. I'm Jewish and consider myself an observant atheist, which basically means I attend a progressive synagogue and observe the Holy Days...

I actually really like the alliteration of Harrison Hinchey. It sounds very suave to my ears.
I love Valerie. I think it's a beautiful,timeless, strong name with a great meaning and a gorgeous sound. I don't know why Valerie doesn't get more love on NB, honestly.

This is really, really important. Not only will an American girl changing her name to Capucine seem silly in America, it will seem silly in France. The fact is that despite your romantic notions...

Agreed. There is that cliche of the suburban girl whose name is Ashley/Nicole/[insert common name here] changing her name to Esmeralda/Chrysanthemum/[insert exotic name here]...
Frankly, I'm not...

I'd call your style "vintage nickname-names."
Olive, Pepper, Bebe, and...
With Ocean, I definitely wouldn't use another word or noun name. No doubt due to knowing a very elegant Frenchwoman named Oceania, and the very French Océane, I really like Ocean with middle names...
Davis is actually the name I like least of these options, but it flows best with Harrison.
Elliott Grey and Mirabel (vastly prefer this spelling) Pearl.
My much younger half-sister, L@uren Mi@. We already have a Laura and a Leah (me) in our family. Not the best choice.
My cousin is pregnant and will probably name the baby Cecelia if it's a girl --...

I'll do an If You Like X, You Might Like Y for your top 10.
Isla: Lilah, Imogen, Keeva, Stella, Lucy, Rose, Phoebe, Chloe, Eden, Isobel
Sadie: Sally, Esme, Faye, Esme, Greta, Maggie, Molly/Polly,...
