    I think it's waaaaaay too much. It's bookends, a matched set, etc.

    But I do think Scarlett is a good stylistic match for Jameson and actually (Miss O'Hara aside) sounds more tough and rugged than...

    Well, Arianna is a bit trendy now (not a slur-- it shows people have good taste). So I'll say she picked something else in that same 'girly, classic, popular' vein:

    I think MarceLINE and floRINa share too many sounds. Michaela is a lovely and dignified name-- I think the Makayla trend is thankfully past, and we can enjoy Michaela as the old, handsome classic...

    Anything with a vaguely continental feel would go nicely. Klara and Theo are both a tad exotic but still short and accessible.

    Thanks all. @Io-- you too!

    I would like to try to have a third, starting in mid-2015 or so. I will officially be of Advanced Maternal Age and so even though I would prefer a larger gap between Cassia and Lucky #3, I think...

    Blaise is pretty close to perfect for me. It has a great history, wonderful namesakes, is rare but pronounceable. It has that approachable-but-elegant vibe I swoon for.

    I evaluated your signature already. :) Could the next person look at the Arabic names? I'm interested in how they strike people phonetically, if they're pronounceable, if they sound pretty or not,...

    In my experience with Japan your child will likely not be seen as a "real Japanese"-- he'll always be a gei-jin, even with a Japanese name and being fluent in Japanese and a Japanese dad. Which can...

    Congratulations! I think you stayed true to your style and picked a very memorable, wearable, workable name.

    Cecilia doesn't literally mean blind. It's an old Roman *family* name-- much like a surname-- and a relatively well-established one at that. Somewhere way back in the mists of time some Roman man was...

    "Acceptable" is a loaded word, but I don't care for it. It strikes me as too folksy, too plain, too hard to dress up if the occasion requires. I don't think it's a particularly beautiful combination...

    My favorite is Eloise-- it's a really nice phonetic contrast to Jillian and Oliver (which are L-heavy) and fits the tone quite well.

    Cecile
    Geneva
    Estelle
    Audrey
    Sylvie

    You have a spunky, unpretentious style and favor shorter, simpler, accessible names. For a girl, I think an ending -s, -r- or -l sound would work well (you've already taken the top two ending vowel...

    I find Rupert insufferably prim. Many "old-fashioned" names have a quiet beauty if you look hard enough and shake off your preconceptions, but I just can't find it in Rupert.

    There is someone floating around nameberry who named her son Kaiser-- but I have to agree, I don't think it's usable. Those associations are overwhelming and it literally means "Caesar." It's like...

    I like Orson more than Truman-- it's less presidential, less surname-y, and has something to do with bears which most little boys would find cool.
