    Cecily, Sadie, and Sophie are my favorites (though not for a family of three sisters!)

    Phoebe is good too. I prefer Tess or Tamsin to Tessa.

    The others are not my style.

    Yeah, din isn't the greatest connection. :) But for me, den suggests coziness, wolf pups, and Cub Scouts. And Gideon is a nice addition, what a great name: epic but sensitive.

    Oh yeah, and I just realized that Den could be a nickname for all those names I generally dislike like Jaden, Caden, Braden, Zaden, etc.

    Den might sound goofy to you but I'd rather have a group...

    A Den of Names

    I've realized that there is a small but growing group of male names I like more and more that could have Den as a nickname.

    Just a nickname, but what a cozy and masculine sounding one, very Ward...

    I like Anchor for a boy and Viola for a girl.

    Or you could get really Christmasy and go It's Wonderful Life-y and name him Bedford or her Donna, as in Falls and Reed! :)

    Thanks so much! Everybody has been really supportive and I've realized how much this does matter to me because as someone said we're not here very long.

    Margot is a fabulous name! :) So elegant and simple.

    Eve and Sibyl are fine, though Sibyl will always remind me of Sally Field in that split-personality movie.

    I will be honest and say that...

    Rosemary and Rosalie I love.

    Rose seems to be extraordinarily boring.

    I like Rosalind and Rosamund too, prefer the latter to the former.

    Mispronouncing: What to Do?

    My name is Leslie and I love it, so I am not asking anyone's opinion on the name.

    But what I don't love is how so few people pronounce it the way I say it - with a z sound.

    Now, I can...

    Olivander makes me laugh, which is probably not the response you want.

    It would make a great name for a stuffed animal or a kids' book character though.

    Just old Oliver is best.

    I love Patricia Eve.

    Calling her both is fine, so long as you don't hyphenate it.

    David, Lorraine, and Patricia sound very 40's-50's which works for me!

    It is hard b/c I don't even like it for a boy. It does not seem to me to go with your name tastes, but diversity can be good.
