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.
Great word and great animal name, but I teach school and their middle names show up on the class rosters.
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, I love Linden and Auden, thanks!
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...
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...

WOW! Two of my very favorite boys' names! Very cool.
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.
I've also decided that my first tactic...

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.

Sorry! One of the things about email is there is no tone of voice.
Actually, you raised a great point I had not considered. What if I named my daughter Marlene like Dietrich and she chose to say...
Neither is my style for a child, but I certainly appreciate their poetry.
I prefer Vespertine b.c I love the word vespers or vesper. She could be called those if she liked. Verspertine Aurore or...

Wow. By 52, I think I know how I want my name said regardless of their original intentions. Leslie with a z is used by others too. It's not as if my name were Jan and I called myself Jen (though...

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.
PS I'm not a...
Not too Mickey, too Howard.

Quinn… I picture a Harry Potter looking boy
Rowan… Mr. Bean on TV
Maeve… a strong Irish woman
Tessa… a hippie therapist
Rory…. a handsome young Irish boy
Saiorse…. some kind of herb
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!

I like, also like Lyall and Lionel.
Some great choices!
Love Doris, not keen on Dory.
I prefer Hannah. My high school students LOATHE the name Hana. They say it is pretentious.

I like all but the last - most "celebrities" have awful taste that cries look at me look at 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.
