@myosotis: Buy them online. That's what I did. My mom didn't really care that I was buying a name book. She just wanted me to pay her back. :p

I think it works great.
Marguerite means daisy. That's where Margaret nn Daisy comes from.
It's never bothered me to be around other Emilys. I rarely had another in my classes. The only time the dread "5 Emilys in one class" scenario happened to me was in my high school photography class....
My, what a list! Here are my favorites:
Dove - as a middle
Forsythia - as a middle
A boy named Whiskey is a Hank III song waiting to happen. Please, please, please never bestow Whiskey or Chardonnay on an innocent human being.
I love it on a boy or a girl. I genuinely have no preference.
Isabella and Sophia are stunning together.
The Nameberry top names are based on number of searches, not actual popularity. Violet is far from the top 10. I actually prefer Autumn over Violet, but I wouldn't use it with a noun name in the...

There have been several great suggestions already. Luther is a fantastic choice, by the way. Not only is it meaningful to you, but it's so handsome, stately, and underused.
Sorry for any repeats....
Nate was my first thought with Lucy and Stella. I'm stuck on N names for some reason. Nate, Nathan, Nathaniel, Nicholas, Nico, Noah, Nolan?
Dominic, Emmett, Isaac, or Julian would be my top picks....

I prefer Drake Atlas by far. I like Knox, but it needs a longer middle name. I wouldn't use Lee with a sister named Leah either.
I hear Davis quite a bit here in the deep south, so it doesn't seem odd to me at all. It isn't exactly my style, but I like it.

Isn't it a variant of Edgar...? Like the previous poster, it reminds me of Alastair. So that's a vote for boy from me.
I prefer Nathan as a first name. Nathaniel is excellent middle name material, but a negative personal association keeps me from warming up to it as a first.
Phoebe and Eliza or Phoebe and Lucy would be fantastic.
Phoebe and Rebecca
Phoebe and Charlotte
Phoebe and Caroline
Phoebe and Lydia
Phoebe and Louisa/Louise
Phoebe and Eleanor

What is the purpose of this thread? To bash beautiful and perfectly legitimate girl's names just because they're popular? Why waste your time on such negativity?

I thought "bh" made the "v" sound. Shouldn't it sound more like "lah-vee-shuh?"
I wouldn't use it outside of Ireland. I'm not even sure how usable it is in Ireland.

Patrick and Theodore! Theodore is classic but underused like Patrick.

God forbid a boy's name end in a vowel sound, right? Are people giving you grief about Sequoia? I think it's awesome. I imagine a guy who's very introverted and wise, obviously a huge nature...

Walking 4-5 days per week for 3-4 miles is my regular exercise, and it keeps me perfectly in shape. I don't have any problems keeping up with the extremely energetic six-year-old I'm babysitting this...
Congratulations! I know it's been a rough road for you, and I'm so glad you finally have your baby girl in your arms! :) Emiliana Pari is an excellent choice.

Other than my American Girl dolls that came with names, I had:
Edward and Eleanor - Bitty Baby twins
Hazel, Charlotte - AG dolls
Jessie - a baby doll I got when I was 4 or 5
Teddy and Rabbit -...

I think it may be written in the stars somewhere that Sunniva is to be the sister of Azula and Indira. You have a Spanish name and an Indian name, so something Nordic, Greek, or Roman would be really...

There was a thread like this a while back, but I'm sure everyone's lists have changed since then.
My top ten is in my signature. :)
ETA: I wanted to come back and note what my top 10 is as of...
