Laura is a lovely name, and there's certainly nothing wrong with it. However, I think the reason you're getting that reaction from people is due to a reason many previous posters have already...
It sounds to me like you got pressured into making a decision that you didn't feel right about, and that doesn't seem fair!
I would encourage you to look into the name changing process in your...
I have my mom's maiden name as my middle name, which is a fairly different surname not typically used as a first. When I was a child, I didn't think too much of it, except for that it was a little...
I have Scarlett Elle on my list. I think it's very elegant :)
I just wanted to say that I have always pictured these three names together in a sibset! They're all great :)
Besides your daughter perhaps thinking that you would have preferred a boy, I think using traditionally male names on females has the potential to suggest to children that there's something wrong...
Seconding Serafina! nn option Fina
If you like Amelia, what about Cordelia or Cornelia? Both of plenty of great nicknames.
I strongly prefer the spellings of Hadley or Finley/Finlay to Hadlee/Finlee. Spelled correctly, I think either of the names is ok.
Can I suggest..
Willa: My all time favourite girls' name. I love how it's lyrical but also strong, short but with substance. It feels historical and classic, but still fresh.
Miriam: I like how...

Having a fairly unique name myself, I know it can be frustrating when people mispronounce it. However, I've really come to love my name over the years, for its classic feel and for what it meant to...

Hmm.. I would like to second Bo. I once read a book with a character named Elizabeth, nn Bo, and I thought it was so cute and spunky! Even as much as I love Beau for a boy. For a longer name, there's...
I also like Isabel, I think it's more classy and timeless. People should generally be familiar with this spelling, as it is just as well used as Isabelle right now.
Families can be notoriously...
Grace, while nice and full of meaning, is a way overused filler middle name. Louise is nice, but with Arabella, that's just too many L's. I would suggest going back to the drawing board!
There's the lovely italian Alessia. I believe it is pronounced Ah-LESS-ee-ah, similar to Alyssa.
I really like both Jude and Judah. What about Malachi? With great nn Kai.
No idea if these are correct, just how I would say them at first glance.
Beatrice - BEE-uh-triss
Imogen - The first time I ever saw this name, I thought it was the same as Imogene, but I've...
I had Cordelia on my list for the longest time, but I took it off because I wasn't feeling any of the nicknames I had for it. However, I may just have to put it back on! Coco is so spunky and fun!...

Do any of them honour anyone in your family or have special significance to you? I think all three are nice, but the flow is a little bit off.
Annabel Ruth has the best flow, but Ruth is nms. If...
Oh I absolutely love Esther! I find it so soft and sweet, and yet strong with a great biblical namesake. The name Essie is also adorable.
I don't think it's an old un-revivable name at all! It was...
I really like Imogene! I know Imogen gets a lot of love on nameberry, but Imogene seems more familiar to me, and easier to pronounce. Plus you get the Jean sound in the name. I also really like it...
Is moving away from where they live not an option? Because they sound like people I wouldn't want to spend a moment of time around, much less consider their opinion on any matter.

While I imagine it must be frustrating to have other people decide what they want to call your child when that's not their given name, I can't help but get this image of a person when they insist a...

On first uneducated glance, I would pronounce Cian as Cyan (like the colour), Kian as k-eye-ann, and Keean as Keen. Because the pronunciation you desire is not at all intuitive to the untrained eye,...
Ivy Isobel! I love alliteration!
