I love Douglas. I do see it as a mid-century name, but that's actually part of its appeal for me. It's not a name everyone will love (if there is such a name), but think it has the potential to make...

Middle names don't serve much purpose in a story, if any, so I don't think they're that important. That said, there's nothing wrong with figuring out your characters' middle names as part of your...
That's my problem, too. Even though I know Edna isn't a feminization, I'm still seeing Ed and Joseph.
Edna Genevieve was my first thought, but I'll also suggest Edna Beatrix, Edna Jacqueline,...

Frances Elizabeth June (gran, mom, aunt)
Peter Edward Alexander (brother, g-grandpa, and my mom again)

John and Paul (and their feminine variations)
Linda. Even a name ending in -lind is a no go.

I feel bad about my comment because I'm usually quick to champion Miriam. I think it's gorgeous, and I love its history. I think my issue here is simply the contrast; when looking at the 8 names...

Least favorite: Miriam. I love it, but it feels more solemn and religious than any other name here.
Replace with: Isidora.
Least favorite: Edwin. It feels weak and nerdy. Edwin is probably...
They're way too matchy for me, more because they're both botanical names and both colors than because of the near-anagram.
I'd rather be Olive. I do like Violet, but I think spunky, curious...

My real name is spelled with one L, but the variant with two has always been far more common in the U.S. As a result, my name is often misspelled.
It's not that big a deal, but it has made me a...
Sure. Just about anything works as a middle name. I've always liked Drew, too.
My favorites are Siena, Skye, and Savannah for girls and Memphis for boys.
There are a bunch of others that are technically place names, such as Virginia and Adelaide, but I don't like to include...

Cora Elizabeth, for its sweet simplicity.
If I could mix things up a bit, I love Declan Alexander. If the combos are set in stone, I pick Declan Scott.

Most favorite: Olympia, with Millicent as a close second.
Least favorite: Lilith. I also dislike Birdie as a given name, but it's an adorable nickname.
I like both the Siena and Sienna spellings, but only Vienna.
Siena is gorgeous and gets my vote.Vienna brings those yucky canned sausages to mind.

Such sad news. She was a special lady, and she will be missed.
My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
I adopted a six-month-old pup whose name was a slang term for an erection. I didn't care that he recognized it as his name...I wasn't about to yell that across a dog park! I simply started using...

Oh, my goodness, how awful. I will keep her in my prayers.
I'm loving Ewan/Euan right now. It's weird because I used to flat out dislike it. I don't know what changed.
If you're feeling overwhelmed, waiting until you know the genders would probably cut way down on your naming stress and still give you plenty of time to decide. Do what feels right for you.
Jo, because I immediately think of Jo Marsh from Little Women.
My first thought was Ivy, but here's a few more:
Freya Lily is my favorite, but Phoebe Grace is a close second.
We have an Alaric at my son's school, and he's AL-uh-rik, the pronunciation I think you don't want. (First syllable emphasized and sounding like Alison or Alan, and a soft, short "uh" in the middle.)...

Before I became pregnant, I was convinced no name in the Top 100 would do. None of the names I had picked out in advance felt right for him, though, and the only one that really did was a Top 30...
