    As pretty as Briar Rose sounds (and to be honest, it's kind of a GP for me), it sounds a bit too... "obvious". Chances are the "Sleeping Beauty" association will never escape her. That's not to say...

    VERY handsome name combo, I must say. Blair is one of those names that I like for a boy, but could never bring myself to use it in real life. I never really thought of the Blair Anthony association...

    I've never met a boy Avery, but I certainly wish there were more of them. I too think of the Avery from Charlotte's Web, and it was my first acquaintance with the name as a whole, so naturally it's...

    Ugh, let's hope nobody catches wind of these and bestows them on official birth certificates. But, yes, it does look fun to see what everyone comes up with. Let's see... how about: (Warning:...

    Philomena is one of those names that seems perfectly realistic in a book or whimsical other-world where the impossible is all very possible. Sadly, I don't think that applies to our day-to-day lives;...

    No, there is nothing "cool" about copying a celebrity, trying too hard, or going out of one's way to sound like they dug out a book, closed their eyes and went with whatever word they happen to...

    I can't recall knowing anyone in real life that fell into the "girls with boy names" category. My only experience with such a thing is contestants on TV shows or documentaries. From that alone, it...

    When I see Avery, I think boy. But then I see Sage and think girl. So, to answer your question, yes, too unisex.

    Although the two have a distinctly different syllable count, (3 and 1,...

    There's nothing really over the top about a sibling set with the same letter, (i.e. Sylvie, Stella, and Sebastian) but if it were the same *syllable*, (i.e. Elliot, Ella, and Elijah) that could be...

    I'll have to go with Electra. My first associations with it are the Marvel Comics character, followed by the mythological character who was princess of Argos.

    Personally, Everly sounds too fussy...

    Really? I never really heard Arthur get a lot of flack before. My guess is that some people might think it sounds too "dusty and old". Personally, I think it's rather dignified and regal; it's...

    It goes back to the whole tradition that men have to preserve their masculinity, yet women are more versatile in what direction their persona can take. It's a sad double standard, but I don't let it...

    Other than the typical pregnancy/adoption stuff, I get a lot of ads for cell phones and internet + TV bundles. I also get quite a few instances of Modcloth, which I do go to fairly often.

    I guess Phyllis Diller isn't a good association for most people. Shame, really, she was quite a character. I'll bet anything if there was a Phyllis on, say, Downton Abbey, mommies-to-be would be...
