    Thanks for the link to the unfairly dated blog post agirlinred. I love the middle name suggestion as it avoids the Bev nickname that people seem to be wary of.

    I think what throws me off is that the first and last names would both have 4 letters with the middle two of each being doubles (two ls, two rs). When looking at it written down it just seems a tad...

    My husband and I really love the name Alice for our baby (and we found out today that it's a girl -- hooray!). My name is April and occasionally, when I was a little girl, people would mistakenly...

    Lirpa. My parents used to call me this every time I mixed up my right with my left. I found it annoying.

    Bay is pretty much the perfect boy's name for that sibset -- I'm thinking in the middle to follow their trend.

    Aubrey, Ruby, Ingrid. At first, these names don't all have an intuitive link to me. I'm going to try to put a finger on your style though and I'd say it is women's names that sound strong (not...

    Agree that I would pn Lena Lee-na. I love the name Helena though and also like the nickname you chose. Maybe I'd use Laina to get to the pn you want, even if it doesn't "match" the name's spelling.
