    I think Peony fits in with the old-fashioned floral and nickname-names popular in England right now! It might elicit some nonsensical childhood teasing with "pee" as the first syllable (I'm talking...

    The trouble with filler names for me, I guess, is that I want people to know that I put thought into my (eventual) kids' names, and "filler" names are the ones many people do use without thinking....

    I wondered if the pronunciation problems were why you were spelling it like that! I, too, am not a big fan of "unique" spellings, but I agree that there are a lot of ways to say Lana, and Lahna...

    LAH-na, same as Lana. For me it's also the car/spa sound. To say LAW-na (like claw or awful) for me, it would have to be spelled Lawna (or Launa?).

    I'm American. In some parts of America "dawn"...

    Rosemarie, because of the Roz thing (I say it Rose-a-mund, though, and really like it). But also that sweet 1920s/30s song: "of all the queens that ever lived I'd choose you/ to rule me my Rose Marie"

    My newest niece was born in late June - Lu!u Gr@ce (sorry, annoying symbols used because her first name was only given to 50-60 babies in the U.S. last year - too identifiable).

    Hadley is one of my GPs. I really like it even if it isn't my usual style! Hadley seems much more legit though; Hadlee looks too trendy, a step from Hadleigh.

    I'm with the minority: I like it and think it is a good solution to your name dilemma. I do think I'd prefer an Ann name as the first half if you're using Annie (with Valerie coming second). But I...

    Tessa is traditionally a nickname for Theresa, so I don't see how it's a stretch.

    Nicknames of classics cycle in popularity. There aren't many 25 year old Elizabeth's called Betty, and nobody...

    Well, the singer's done OK getting people to call her Shakira. I think Kiri is cute, or Kira. Shakira's not my style, but I did know a cute little girl from Ireland with that name in the 90s.

    Elizabeth! It feels blank to me. I love the nicknames, too, so I wish I loved it just so I could get to Betsy or Elsie. A lot of "boring" standards, like Anne, Jane, and Rose are my favorites, but I...

    Lucy IS the original, standard name, not a nickname - those names like Lucille and Luciana and Lucinda are the variations. Sometimes the standard name just happens to end in a Y - think of Mary or...

    It's my "if only" name/nickname combo. It was my grandma's name, and it's my middle, but my sister has said that she plans to use it - and chances are high that she'll get to it before me, as she...

    Both?! Okay. I've loved Cecily since I was a little kid reading The Story Girl, and it's shockingly underused. But Celeste is smooth and pretty. I'm a big fan of the "middle option," Cecile. But if...

    I like word names if spelled like the word. Winter calls to mind all sorts of beautiful images, but Wynter isn't really anything. I love that you could call her Winnie if you wanted, too. If Autumn...

    I've fallen hard for Kaia lately, and I usually prefer C to K names when possible. I know they have different roots, but Kaia is on my list because I think I need a few Catherine variants on deck....

    I think the Sue names are ripe for the picking. Probably popular too recently to stage a mass comeback in the next decade or two, but very usable. Susanna has been near the top of my list for years....

    I pronounce Halle and Hallie the same, but prefer Hallie. I guess I don't like the lone E making the "ee" sound - like Bette, which is sometimes Bett and sometimes Betty. Halle also feels more like a...

    I agree with the others. First of all, I don't think names need to "match" except maybe in terms of either how much parents like them or how much they mean to the parents - and that's just for the...
