You are right, he is wrong.
Slightly tacky, and unnecessary.
I don't like it either.
Very dated, very boring, and I don't like any 'ya' names (Sonya, Tanya, Anya).
If I had to, I'd use the Sonia spelling.
I love and adore the name Delia.
I don't find Ruby juvenile at all, and don't really understand where that's coming from, tbh. It's a very old name in its own right. I love it.
That said, I'd prefer Nadia as it's so much less...

No, it's awful. It doesn't even sound name-like.
I know a Nettie whose full name is Annette. That would be my first thought, actually.
I absolutely adore it.
The name Lydia is one of my very favourites. I remember sitting next to a woman my age called Lydia at a course I did, about 15 years ago, and deciding it was the perfect...
I am confused.
Do you want your daughter to be called a name that sounds like LAH-nuh or LON-nuh (with a short 'o', to rhyme with Donna)? Because the name 'Lana' *is* pronounced LAH-nuh, isn't...
Philip. The extra 'l' in Phillip looks superfluous to me.
Although the more I read it on this thread, the less I like it (sorry).
This. I strongly dislike Macyn, I'm afraid.
I have wanted to use Lilla since I saw it in a book as a teenager.
Unfortunately, I have nieces/children of close friends called: Ella, Milla and Lily. So that's that. :(
Gosh, Freesia is a fantastic middle name! I just love the Freesia flower so much (best smell ever) that it immediately has beautiful connotations for me.
I am unsure about Edith...as middle names...
I love Imogen.
Reasons? It reminds me of the words 'image' and 'imagine'. It's Shakesperean, and very much has the Viola/Miranda/Juliet vibe. There's something quiet and demure about it; I think...
I think they all sound middle-aged and frumpy.
I much prefer Lila.
I would assume Mina rhymed with Tina and Gina. I understand wanting to keep the family spelling, but I also think it will be irritating for her to go through life with all the mispronunciations.
I don't think Ivy makes any sense as a nickname for Vivian, only Viv or Vivi.
Ivy is perfectly lovely as a stand-alone name, and I don't see why it wouldn't age well. I vastly prefer it to...
I love Indra, and maybe love Indira a bit more.
Indra/Indira Maeve is amazing!

I just find Julian so girly. Sorry.

An interesting choice. (Okay, I don't like it.)

I do think it comes across as a bit pretentious, to be honest.
It also strikes me as one of those French names that sounds lovely in a French accent, but not so much in an American one.
I don't like Vivian, or Vivienne. I think it's hard-sounding. Most don't agree, though!
I don't really love Jasmine, tbh. It's one of those 'looks prettier than it sounds' names. And always gets nicknamed to Jaz, which is awful.
It's awesome! Don't change it!
There are millions of names out there that are more difficult to pronounce, and I'm shocked that people are struggling with Ondine. But they'll get there, and it...

I personally know the following under-5s:
Lila, Layla, Lola, Lilla, Ella, Lilly, Mara, Mala, Milla, Mira
That's just off the top of my head.
If I was naming a baby girl in 2014, I would...
