My great-grandmothers were Anastasia (preferred Nancy, though), Cecilia, Della, and Josie (not sure if that was her formal name, or short for Josephine/Jocelyn). Beyond that, my great-grandfather's...

It's really hard to choose, because I pretty much like all of them as a sister to Penelope! The only ones that I would probably avoid are Hermione (I love Greek girls' names that end with -e, but I...

I agree with the other posters that I really like most of the first names, but I'm not a huge fan of the middles.
Cynthia Margaret - My name is actually Margaret Cynthia, so of course I like...
Thank you for all the congrats, well wishes, and compliments. We're all doing well, although it's a bit overwhelming having two children under two. Thank goodness for my mother, who is helping us out...
William Balthazar is a big brother!
Catherine "Cate" Ophelia was born a little after nine a.m yesterday morning, weighing in at seven pounds, nine ounces. She's absolutely gorgeous, and my husband...

It's not a huge deal, but it bugs me a little that Alice, Eleanor, and Eliana have such a similar beginning to Oliver with the vowel-l pattern. Eleanor, especially, sounds a lot like Oliver, just...

- I love long, multi-syllabic names and don't care for many one-syllable names. The only ones I honestly love are Eve, Blythe, Lark, Snow, Luke, and Blaise.
- I personally would never put a...
My guilty pleasure twinsets tend to work okay when just looking at the full, formal names. It's the possible matchy-matchy nicknames that cause the problems!
Veronica and Victoria (could be...

I love Morgan on a boy or a girl, but I wouldn't pair it with Rory. Not only is the flow off, there's too much -or sound and Rory is also considered unisex nowadays. I wouldn't know if Morgan Rory...

Copy/pasting from a previous Top 5 combos thread:
1. William Balthazar - Our son's name, which I'm absolutely in love with. William is so handsome and regal, but the nickname Liam is cute, fun,...

I want to know which of your girl names...
1) ...is the most unusual? Theophania
2) ...is the most traditional? Elizabeth
3) ...is the most masculine? Morgan (although I prefer Morgana a little...

Yeah, unfortunately, I agree that Matthew is too close as a sibling name, but how do you feel about Matthias? It doesn't really solve the Matt/Kat issue, and he would still share an initial with Mark...

I can't decide if I would want two boys/three girls or three boys/two girls, so I guess I'll just do both!

I almost always pronounce -ia as two syllables. The only two exceptions I can think of are Anastasia and Alicia, although I still slightly prefer A-lee-see-ah to A-leash-ah. It just doesn't bug me as...
Isobel "Zoe" Theophania (Zoe is actually my favorite, while Isobel is a compromise...
Our William is Liam most often, but we'll occasionally call him Will, Wilby (combining Will and his middle initial), or Mr. Willoughby. We plan to use Cate for Catherine's nickname once she's born,...
I do have a small list, although most of the time I forget about it, so it doesn't get updated anywhere near as much as my favorites. Plus, there are a lot of names I dislike, so it's just not...
To me, Celine is seh-leen and Selene is seh-lee-nee, but I have a bit of an obsession with Greek girls' name that end with "e", so it seems like such a waste not to pronounce it when spelled Selene....
It's a definite stretch, but I think Nola could work as a nickname for Penelope, since I've seen Lola suggested as a Penelope nn before.

1. William Balthazar - Our son's name, which I'm absolutely in love with. William is so handsome and regal, but the nickname Liam is cute, fun, and honors our joint Irish heritage. We chose Balthazar...
When I saw this thread, my first thought was "Oo, Luna Ophelie Vesper is absolutely gorgeous!" (Not surprising, since Ophelia and Vesper are in my Top 20, and I really like Luna as well.) Then I...
