Lyric (which I SO ADORE) strikes me as all girl. I'm inferring from the mn Julian that you're expecting a gentleman, so I'd go with Sage Julian (which I also like!) in that case.

Given that my first day in the program is Wednesday, I'm uncertain how my peers in the school view the data from Rooks' study. What I have seen, however, turns my stomach. I confess that I have not...
I just laughed so hard I may have damaged my spleen.
Lucia Daphne has a much better rhythm to it.

I'm actually studying at Birthingway in Portland. I considered Bastyr very heavily, but ultimately chose Birthingway for a laundry list of reasons irrelevant to this conversation, so I'll spare you....
My vote goes for Brenna. If you love it so much (understandably so; it's lovely), I think you should go for it, especially since you may not have another daughter to "save" it for (even if you have...
I didn't know how to pronounce it until others said so in this thread. I think she'd be in for a lifetime of misspellings and mispronunciations. Those are big "nos" for me.
I voted for Jonathan as I prefer it to Jackson, but I'm going to add my voice to the chorus: If you love Jack (as I do - boy, do I ever), just name him Jack. It's enough name to stand on its own two...

Riley - cute, but NMS
Megan - I like Megan a lot. I prefer Margaret as a means of getting to Meg, but Megan would be a refreshing alternative to Margaret these days.
Macey - NMS
The "a" strikes me as more garish, for reasons I can't pinpoint. I prefer Lindsey.
I agree with blade. Juniper and Poppy are very sweet independently, but the P alliteration is a bit much in the middle. Definitely doesn't strike me as too many botanicals, however; perhaps another...

I've just moved from Texas to Oregon, so my memory of barely tolerable Texas summers is vivid in my mind. If I could have a baby in May, right before the really intolerable period of summer begins,...
I'll add my vote to the pile for Dante Vincent as a full name. Vincent was my father's name, so I have obvious love for it; but I think Dante works better in the first name position in this case.

In the interest of full disclosure for my bias, I am a student midwife with intentions of beginning a homebirth practice after my certification and licensure.
There are several states in the US...

I'm sold on Violet Adelaide. The connection that provides to both your girls tugs at my heart.

None are really my style, but Virginia Primrose is the most palatable by a landslide. Ginger would be lovely to see on a little girl, and if she wants to use Virginia professionally, she'll have the...

The most quintessentially wealthy, private school, trust fund, off-to-Connecticut-for-the-weekend name I can think of is Prescott. Pres as a nn does nothing for me, but if you're after a...
Elizabeth, by a long shot. One of my favorites.
I like Leah, but I much prefer the pronunciation "LAY-ah" (a la Star Wars) as opposed to the far more common "LEE-ah." I realize I'm in the...

This. I thought I read that wrong at first.
I don't have a whole lot of love going on for hyper-feminine, ribbons-and-frills names in general, so most of these don't do much for me - but I do...

I voted for Chloe Magnolia. While I like the name Abigail, I think Magnolia works better as a middle to Chloe. Sienna is simply NMS, and while I adore the name Rain, I prefer it spelled that way. ...

Beatrice Emerald gets my vote, with (the very different but just as wearable) Zara Emerald as my second choice. I love the name Claire, but I'm not sure how well it works in this capacity. The...
I might be seeing this through "I really really love all three of these names soooo much" glasses, but I think Frances Jane French works just fine. I doubt this'll work if DH has already vetoed Jane...

I've never seen Irene pronounced any way other than "eye-REEN." Any other pronunciation is counterintuitive, and I think a child with a different pronunciation would be in for a lifetime of...

When I think "frilly," Priscilla is the first one that comes to mind.
