    I have a Juno, so obviously that's my favorite. I also like Phoebe (I have a cat with that name, actually, and if not, I might have used it for one of my twins). I'm not a fan of double middles; they...

    Our twins are here!

    This week we welcomed Daphne Ramona and Luella Maeve! Luella was especially reluctant to come out, took an hour and twenty minutes longer than Daphne and came out clutching the cord in one hand :). ...

    As someone who is pregnant with naturally-conceived twins (really, this belly doesn't lie, 37 weeks today and I *hope* they're coming out soon!), I do think it's harder to name multiples, esp. in our...

    It's a lovely name, and even if they didn't like it, it's totally inappropriate to be nasty about it. The problem is with them, not Juniper's name. I have a baby Juno, and we've never had anyone be...

    I think it's probably fine. The movie might be popular, and the book certainly is (mostly with teens, probably), but it's not going to be a Twilight. If you really love the name, use it. They're both...

    This thread really attracted me because two of the names are the ones I think we're using for our twin girls on the way: Daphne and Luella. I was so surprised to see both of them on such a short...

    I know a toddler Rosalie, and it's adorable on her. I haven't read Twilight, but the only reason I even know there's a Rosalie in there is from Nameberry boards. I wouldn't worry about that at all.

    I don't think that the stories behind myth names are always dealbreakers, but to me, Antigone has basically the most tragic story in all of the Greek myths. I wouldn't want to give that name to a...

    I think it would have to be Zilah, because Zillah definitely reads as the short-vowel i sound. It's definitely uncommon, but not unheard of. I just looked at the extended name list for 2011 and there...

    Okay, mom of a toddler Juno here, so I have a lot to say. :)

    We were worried about the movie, but it hasn't been a big thing at all. The movie was nearly five years ago, and most the college...

    This made me laugh. I agree! Just realized, too, that the particular poem I was thinking of is not Atwood but Louise Gluck, and it's called "Circe's Power." Check it out. :)

    I have to stick up for Circe, who gets a bad rap. Maybe I'm influenced by Margaret Atwood's Circe poem, but I've never seen her as a villain. Sure, she turns men into pigs, but she stops at Odysseus...

    I think Lila Edith is lovely, and I don't think it's trendy at all. Lucy Celeste would be pretty as well. I'm not a big fan of Lucille myself.

    Thanks, Davisellu! I love Phoebe, but it's our cat's name. Guess that teaches me a lesson (she's ten, though, so I wasn't thinking about babies back then). Fiona is really pretty and it sounds...
