    They're both so lovely, it's hard to choose. Hmm. In the end, I think I'd go with Gwen Felicity.

    Gwen and Jude are wonderful together, btw, and it's great to see Gwen on someone's short list!

    Well, that's true, but I think the OP is talking about names with no real history or associations beyond one pop culture reference. Names more like Renesme (however it's spelled!), Katniss, and...

    I sort of hear the "insane" part, but I also want to read Kieran Thompson as "Keenan Thompson," as a previous poster mentioned.
    Overall, I prefer Keiran Zane, but both combos are fine, really.

    Ah, I'm home sick and just watched Sense and Sensibility this afternoon. :D

    I much prefer Elinor. Regardless of the spelling, it's a tad formal compared to Tilly and Charlie, but it still...

    I wouldn't display both names in a nursery unless we used both names all the time as a double name.

    Our district enrollment forms have space for the full name, and my students' full names,...

    Moira reminds me of "moist," a word that gives me the heebie-jeebies. :( The "moy" sound just doesn't work for me.

    Oh, but I love Maura! It's beautiful.

    I wouldn't want a name with such an obvious and singular pop culture association, and I wouldn't give one to a child, no matter how much I loved it and the source it came from. I feel the same way...

    I'm really starting to think about Perry. It was my great-grandmother's maiden name.

    I have a mix of both on my lists, but I generally prefer shorter names. They feel spunkier, more energetic. To me, sometimes, long names feel so ponderous and overwrought by comparison.

    I've long suspected some celebrities use their children for free publicity. Every time an article about "wacky" celebrity baby naming comes up, they get a shout out.

    *shrugs* I'm a cynic,...

    I took 2 names to the hospital, but really I had already named him. I had a strong feeling during pregnancy that I had found the right name, and nothing changed my mind upon meeting him. The same...

    I think there are two kinds of "pop culture" names. There are those (like Esme, Serena, and Peyton) with multiple associations, including some from pop culture. Then there are those with a singular...

    lee-ZET, but the "lee" is a little breathier than how I say it in Lee or Leah. It's sort of halfway between "lee" and "lih."

    It's a pretty name that's a neat combo of sweet and saucy.

    Priscilla and Vera both go very well with Ruby, and I don't think either one is too "old."

    I'm not as fond of Guinevere, but I don't get an old vibe from it, either. I had a student named...

    I love Gretchen, and I'd like to see it get some attention. We had a dog named Gretchen when I was a kid. (Not to imply that it's a "dog name"; just to say that I've loved it for a long time.) ...
