    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!

    Welcome to the top 10, Charlotte

    ...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...

    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". :(

    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'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.

    Let's talk about Maisie

    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 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...
