    You are right, he is wrong.

    I don't like it either.

    Very dated, very boring, and I don't like any 'ya' names (Sonya, Tanya, Anya).

    If I had to, I'd use the Sonia spelling.

    I don't find Ruby juvenile at all, and don't really understand where that's coming from, tbh. It's a very old name in its own right. I love it.

    That said, I'd prefer Nadia as it's so much less...

    I am confused.

    Do you want your daughter to be called a name that sounds like LAH-nuh or LON-nuh (with a short 'o', to rhyme with Donna)? Because the name 'Lana' *is* pronounced LAH-nuh, isn't...

    Philip. The extra 'l' in Phillip looks superfluous to me.

    Although the more I read it on this thread, the less I like it (sorry).

    I have wanted to use Lilla since I saw it in a book as a teenager.

    Unfortunately, I have nieces/children of close friends called: Ella, Milla and Lily. So that's that. :(

    Gosh, Freesia is a fantastic middle name! I just love the Freesia flower so much (best smell ever) that it immediately has beautiful connotations for me.

    I love Imogen.

    Reasons? It reminds me of the words 'image' and 'imagine'. It's Shakesperean, and very much has the Viola/Miranda/Juliet vibe. There's something quiet and demure about it; I think...

    I would assume Mina rhymed with Tina and Gina. I understand wanting to keep the family spelling, but I also think it will be irritating for her to go through life with all the mispronunciations.

    I do think it comes across as a bit pretentious, to be honest.

    It also strikes me as one of those French names that sounds lovely in a French accent, but not so much in an American one.

    I don't like Vivian, or Vivienne. I think it's hard-sounding. Most don't agree, though!

    I don't really love Jasmine, tbh. It's one of those 'looks prettier than it sounds' names. And always gets nicknamed to Jaz, which is awful.
