The recent article about Japanese names reignited the fire I have for them, and I wanted to pose a question to the community at large.
I love many Japanese names. I think they are beautiful and...
I love Nola June, but I think June sounds better with Faye. Either way, you've got a good name! What middle names do you like if June is the first?
Agree with pp that Rudy Dawn Willow is a lot of nature names all put together, and Nadia or Fiona might work a bit better for an adult. Also, something about RR names gets me a bit tongue-tied; maybe...
I know someone who has used this as a middle name - and most people mispronounced it. Lots of Simon, Simmon, and yes, semen. However, most people don't know the baby's middle name anyway. I think...
O'Kelly if you use Anne, and Sinclair if you use Anna.
Sophie is often used as a nickname for Sophia, so even though Sophie is technically less popular than Sophia, you will probably hear "Sophie!" just as much, so I would ignore those stats...

Just want to clarify that I do not think Aurora Sage is bad at all - it sounds lovely and has great meaning. Just for me, personally, the hippie line has been crossed, even though it's a far cry...
The only one I would caution you against is Electra. You don't want people joking about having an Electra complex. But as for the rest, go for it! I love Gardenia, Garnet, Esmeralda, Waverly, Opal,...

Aurora Maeve and Aurora Sage sound so very similar, but I prefer Maeve simply because I consider Aurora a nature name, and two nature names feels like too much. Aurora Maeve gives me a soft violet,...
Maybe this was a thing in their generation, just like people like to spell things creatively now; case in point, I recently met a 75yo woman named Georgian - pronounced George-Anne.
I like the idea of Winter or Summer, even Spring. Also, what about Autumn in the middle spot? Or a fall month - November, October, and September all sound really beautiful to me.
I love Zoe and Maeve, and I think Maeve Arlo is very sweet. What about Maeve Arlo nn Minnow? Zoe and Maeve, Ziggy and Minnow.
I prefer Iris, only because, as someone who works in healthcare, I also think of IVs (IV fluids, antibiotics, etc) when I hear Ivy. Both are really lovely green names either way.

This scenario always reminds me of clothing. I'm rather short, but not really petite or small-framed, and whenever I buy jeans or longer dresses, I find I need to have them shortened by at least an...

Ella or Lily are both great with Colin - but Caroline is a bit too close, even if you do plan on calling her Cece.
My favorite boy name is now my fiance's name. Not defiled, but ruined. I could maybe use it as a middle name on a little boy now, but not as a first, because I'm firmly in the "No Jrs., No Family...
I have six rules for deeming a name/name combination "good enough" for my future children:
1) Easy, traditional spelling - No Elissabeth.
2) Easy/intuitive pronunciation - No Siobhan or Rhys.
1) how would you pronounce Lucia? Honestly, however you asked me to. I'm aware of the different options (LOO-shuh, Loo-SE-uh, Loo-CHEE-uh), and all sound nice to me, so I would follow your lead.
