    I like it a lot. I believe it is a name that the actress Maggie Gyllenhaal chose for her first daughter. If you're in the US, then, it might have a very slight hipster-trendy association based on...

    I was just checking in for the first time in months to see how people I know from the TTC 2013 thread are doing, and I'm delighted to see some success. SarahMezz, I'm so happy for you!...

    Nora is one that sort of works-- in Arabic, Noor or Noora is a name related to light (can be spelled Nora too, and pronounced nearly exactly the same). In English Nora supposedly doesn't have a...

    I know that Avery is a variation of Alfred, so even though it's used on girls these days, it feels very masculine to me.

    But that's probably not an issue for you.

    More pertinent I would think...

    Ren sounds more masculine than Wren to me. Indeed, I've heard it as a nickname for Lawrence.

    In terms of sound, I prefer Hazel Pomeline. But I'm ever-so-slightly put off by the double botanical references (Hazelnut and Apple). Actually, maybe that's really cute--and super yummy. Add some...

    Well, we all have African heritage…

    I like it a lot. It reminds me of the Israeli boy's name Saffra, which I like (and which either doesn't exist in the NB database, or I'm misspelling).

    What about the formal name Madeleine with the nickname Lindie or Lindy? Sounds almost just like Indie, and is I think a plausible but inventive nn for Madeleine.

    I voted for Edward. While I see that Theodore is most popular with poll takers at the moment, I really thought that since your other children all have three-syllable names, it might be nice to go...

    I really like Frank. And I don't like the longer forms like Franklin--That just feels to me like you're trendifying a traditional name, like all the Jackson-ing and such. What's wrong with good old...

    Holden Layne sounds a little like a phrase to me. Like you're in a car, and you're holdin' the lane against a bit semi that's trying to nudge you over. I'd definitely go for Henry.

    Both are nice, although Olivia is infinitely more common than Majken.

    Also, I find it a little bit less-than-lovely the way that the pronunciation of Majken is unclear, at least to American...

    Asa and Naomi are such nice Old Testament names. It seems really odd to pair them with Sullivan.

    Haley's Comet swung near the earth in 1986, which I would guess had something to do with the spike of the name around then, and the sense that it's date-stamped around then. I haven't looked at the...

    Are you thinking of Ayelet, the Hebrew name? It's not pronounced the same-- It's pronounced AH-YE-LET and means "Gazelle" in Hebrew. The most famous Ayelet is Ayelet Waldman, an author.
