I love Twila and it would be near the top of my list if my partner were on board for it. I've tried it out on a lot of people, and the usual reaction I get is "Southern". So be prepared for that!

...well, maybe I'm being a little hyperbolic, but I do think the newest Clinton will add even more oomph to Charlotte's rise through the rankings.
Or will the strong dislike many people have for...

My favorites right now include Cosima, Rose, Alice, Juliette, Violet, Maisie, and Rosamund. I've also come around to Sophie recently in a big way. And I love Lettie.
I'm also ever in love with...
Ah, I was just about to suggest Miranda, but toronto87 beat me to it.
I also thought of:
I like Roxana a lot-- it would be one of my favorites, except that 3 people in a row have told me it made them think of prostitution. I think it's the lingering effects of the Police's "Roxanne". :(
I hope you pick Susan! It's such a good name and my hunch is she will be ahead of the curve in a beneficial way going through life with it.
What would be your preferred nickname? Or would you...
Besides Mikaela (Swedish/Nordic), Mikhaila is also a traditional Russian spelling. If you have Slavic heritage, that could fly. Still a pain to spell, but at least it's not purposefully mispelled.
I think Michaela is by far the most beautiful spelling, and all the others are trendy imitations-- not to mention a total pain in the a** to spell out to people over & over again. (Trust me on this,...
I adore Clementine Honey! It's pretty storybook/precious but also just very special.
I'm a big fan of having some personal meaning in the middle spot-- whether as an honor name, family surname, or name of a place or character that is meaningful to you/your partner.
But! I also...
I love it. However, I don't think it has enough substance to stand on its own. Is anyone up for convincing me otherwise? DH-to-be likes it as a full form on its own, but he's so mild mannered about...
I really like Susan in all its forms-- even Suzanne seems somehow glamorous and young and fresh to me (probably b/c I know a model with that name). Susan doesn't feel like Barbara or Linda, for some...
It's a short form of Harriet or Henrietta.
That said, I agree with you, and I just did the boyfriend test-- as in, I asked my boyfriend what he thought of Hattie, and he said, "it sounds like an...

So, Scarlett Johansson gave birth and announced her daughter's name as Rose Dorothy. SWOON.
What are the chances that she's secretly a name nerd? It's such a perfect, stylish, yet unusual...
I woudn't use it. Pandora is sort of like Lucifer-- a baddie of mythology-- with few redeeming qualities. Plus, there's the internet radio station. It reads as brand first, name second.
Wow, you could be me! Just this past weekend I was reading a book by the marvelous Ursula K. LeGuin and suddenly developed a crush on her name. I think it's quite mysterious and beautiful. Plus it...
I think Wren is fine on a boy. It's not very common for girls, and I don't see it becoming mainstream for them really. (Mostly because of the non-intuitive spelling and the fact that the current...

Hmm, I voted for Harrison Hinchey but to be honest I don't love any of them combined with the surname. The repetitive "in- in" sound that comes from the endings of these names and the first syllable...
Do you think Juliette with the nickname Lettie works, or is too much of a stretch?
I like Juliette very much (and it's an honor name for us) but have poor associations with Julie as a...
This idea is nice in theory, but why not spread the posts out over several days? This is really clogging up the forum!

Yes! I think it works as a first or middle name.
I think I'm on a quixotic crusade here, but I think it is very important to make a distinction between using names OF other cultures that have...

I've recently fallen in love with three rare Celtic/British girl names:
However, my partner dislikes them. He likes very unusual names (especially word...

Ah, yeah, I forgot about Hazel! Isn't the lead character in that new movie "The Fault In Our Stars" named Hazel? That could propel it quite high. Or not. You never know with these things.
I can't say it's a name I'd like for myself-- too frilly and somehow sort of steamy. But I could see it working in some families, especially if it was meaningful to the parents. I don't love it...
