    Thank you! We've decided to do just that. We seem to swing for the fences on the wild names, then settle down into something more normal. Catherine Evelyn, to join Sara Lorraine and William Matthias....

    I don't think they're problematic. When I read Anice (a-NEES?) I thought anise the spice, and my first thought on the 2nd set was that they both have a V in them.

    Middle name for Catherine, called Kit

    Catherine "Kit" St. John
    OR
    Catherine "Kit" Evelyn

    That would be EV-lin, rather than EVE-lin, by the way. We want something strong and vaguely unisex, but in a vintage-y,...

    I like Lucas too! My first thought when I saw the title, before I read your choices in the post, was "he needs a Swedish name with that set!"

    I would choose Matthew as well, with Erik as the runner-up. It all depends on whether you like the similarity of Erik and Evan or not.

    Wow. I once dreamed that my husband and I had a son (before we found out we were having a girl, our boy list consisted of Nathan, Theodore, and Zachary, IIRC). His name was Dean.

    I like it. The one quirk I can think of is, that when a British friend came to the US and met another girl I knew, named Marianne, I guess he assumed that pronouncing it mary-ANN, as I assume you...

    I second Ruby, or any other gem names like Pearl. Do you like Imogen or Freya or Poppy? Some of the suggestions strike me as kind of British in an avant-garde sort of way. I love Hazel and Gwen,...

    I agree with rachelmay that a name starting with a vowel will go best. Hooray for bonus points for saints! I'll try not to get too odd, although there are some great ones (Apollonia and Eusebia...

    You could always name her Mary ____, and call her by the second name. Loads of girls do that, especially since Mary was such a common name in the past. I have a student in my class now named Mary...

    Elowen is my favorite. You could explicitly go searching for Welsh names, as they seem to fit your style. Aderyn comes to mind, and Bevin isn't Welsh, but is similar to the names on your list.

    First, I love Lila (or Leila, or Delilah...). Jade, Audrey, or Ariella would probably be my picks after that. Based on the names that are your favorites, and I'm sure that you've already considered...

    We're choosing a backup name for Edith -- last time, we took two names to the hospital in case our first choice didn't fit -- and Marie seems to be edging out Abigail. We definitely want Marie as...
