    I voted Naomi Eve--I think the meaning is beautiful and I think Naomi works best with a shorter middle name (1 or 2 syllables). Naomi Catherine was my second choice, but I say Catherine as a two...

    Of the names you have listed, I like Blythe best!

    For middles, I think Blythe Adelaide is simply stunning! It sounds so graceful and sweet. Blythe Eloise and Blythe Juliet are beautiful, but don't...

    Go ahead, the 1-syllable 1st/Last name is no biggie.

    Think of all the 1-syllable 1st/Last name individuals you know. Off the top of my head: Bill Gates, Anne Rice, Ben Stein, George Bush, John...

    I think Owen definitely works best for you. Jack doesn't flow great with the last name and I am not a big fan of Luca sharing a first initial with sister Lillian.

    Not a big fan of Lane Shelby. If I heard that name, my first inclination would be that it is a girl. Not that being a girl is a bad thing, but it could be annoying to deal with the confusion. I also...

    I was a Jessica born in a year it was #1 for girls. I never minded having a common name. It fit me and it was nice to be part of a "club" like others have said. It has also been wonderful to have a...

    Oh, every name is ripe for bullying in some way. And if it's not your name, the bully will just pick something else. If someone wants to tease you, there are worse things than a name they can latch...

    I think honoring your sister is a lovely idea. Paige is not the chicest of names and pales in comparison to the lovely Genevieve. Some suggestions that also honor your sister might be Paget -...

    I don't think it will matter much if you have a Jewish last name paired with Liam, because Liam has come far enough into the mainstream that I wouldn't consider it a super Irish name. If you were...

    I think Opaline is very, very pretty. I am an American and the most natural pronunciation and what I automatically thought was "Oh-pa-leen." I think that the -ine ending is much prettier than an -een...

    Oh my goodness you sound like you are having a tough time of it!

    I live in the US and I think the norm is Claire-a here. To be honest, Clah-ra in our accent generally sounds kinds of stupid and unnatural. Clah-ra sounds so much prettier in an...

    I don't think any of the names you have in your signature is particularly snobby on it's own. The ones I would say come closest to snobby are Barthélémy and Cordelia, although they're still lovely...

    I am an American and I too thought of the cartoon character when I saw the question. I think as a given name of an American, it might seem silly. But we definitely have different standards when the...

    Based on what you each like, it sounds like you appreciated Margot (and your other favorites) for their spunky, nonfeminine style. It sounds like your husband leans more towards vintage classics....

    From your top five my top pick would be Alba! I love love love it and so few people use it/take note of it! Alba, like Klara and Theo, is unique but distinctive and I think it makes her siblings...
