    My significant other has more "out there" tastes than I do. He is very into word names, and would happily pick outlandish for our future kid. He really likes Wave for a boy, for example, and Sonnet...

    Definitely Dahlia or Dalia. I wouldn't want to go through life named Delilah. Too heavy, too saucy, too suggestive.

    I'm not even religious at all and Delilah always sounds suspicious to me. It's sort of like Lilith. Great names, but reality bites. Other people are going to react negatively-- so why set your...

    That's a nice set of names. I'd skip Elianna because it is part of a very, very trendy/popular set of sounds (Iliana, Eliana, Ella, Elianna, Liliana, Lilianna, etc).

    I think Evangeline is really...

    Overall I prefer Penelope to Felicity for personal reasons BUT in your case I say Felicity all the way. It was your original impulse, it fits better with your other kids' names, and sounds better...

    You can google "ssa baby names" "beyond the top 1000" for a zip file with complete info on all names given to more than 5 children every year since the late 1800s. Warning, it is really overwhelming!...

    It took me a minute to figure out the issue with Henry and Etta. When I did, yes, I smiled a little. But if I loved Etta, it wouldn't keep me from using the name. They will only live in the same...

    I also wanted to add that if you go with Hyacinth, you should read T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land as hyacinths show up in a beautiful verse towards the beginning:

    I love it a lot. I recently heard of a NYC newborn named Delphinium, so Hyacinth doesn't really make me blink.

    I know the Keeping Up Appearances association in the UK is a little strong, and...

    I've met many a non-Italian Lucia. The name is really pan-cultural-- sort of like Cecilia or Beatrice. The most recent Lucia I met was German (and she pronounced it the Italian way).

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that I think it will come off as a little empty if you use Maitreya just because you like the sound, without being a whole hearted devoted Buddhist or Hindu. It...

    I have a family member with this name. It fits her. But, I don't think it's been an easy name to have. Sometimes traditional Hindus and Buddhists (not American hippie converts) think it is a little...

    I like Agnes (and Agatha) very much, but Aggie has issues that Maggie, Abby, Addie etc. don't. Mainly that "agh" is a common expression of annoyance, and Aggie is very noticeably rhyme-y with...

    It seems pretty easy to split your lists into two categories-- contemporary feminine, and androgynous girl unisex. The two styles aren't 100% incompatible, but you might want to decide which to type...

    I made the connection immediately. I think it is OK, not great, but basically fine. Still, if it was a tie between Veda and another name, it would be enough to break the tie for me.

    I'm not a big fan of Audrey or Audra. Audra seems sort of dated to me (I think of the late 1970s for some reason, and bell bottoms, and disco?). Audrey is OK, but with Aubrey/Aubree bounding up the...

    Vivienne Reverie is heavy on the v's and r's but in a way that's GOOD. They names really flow. I think it's quite gorgeous actually.

    You say your surname is 2 syllables and starts with C. If your...
