    I'm sorry - I'm not feeling Truett as a first name. Partly this is because I hear "truite", the French word for "trout", when I hear Truett. Also I've mostly heard it as a surname on a TV show and...

    On their own I like Lennox a lot better - it feels less formal than Lincoln. My only reservation in your case would be that the end of Lennox runs into the beginning of Smith - not a disaster, just...

    This is exactly how I feel about it, too. I say it gal-uh-TAY-uh, too. Such a grand name, and with sweet Tea as a very usable nickname.

    I like Elska, too! It feels nimble and quick.

    I agree that Rosemary Viviana is pretty frilly. Rosemary Vivienne, though, is lovely. Or Rose Viviana. Rose may feel insubstiantial to you next to Rosemary, but it's a perfectly usable name. And if...

    I vote for Luke because I've met a ton of Jacks and Liams in the past five years. I've met Lukes, too, but not nearly as many, so it feels much fresher.
