Personally I think Finbar/Finbarr isn't really a useable name, but Finn or Finley/Finlay would be a reasonable alternative although not outwardly obvious.
Barry apparently means spear. I searched...
I don't put a whole lot of emphasis on nicknames to be honest. I think it's fine for parents to plan for a nickname and use it themselves, but beyond early childhood it would be hard to insist on the...

I like the names from your floral and unusual lists, especially when used in combination. I think a combo like Freya Violet or Zara Clementine would be absolutely stunning.

I wouldn't use a name my SO didn't love, but in that sense I'm lucky because he does care about names and his taste generally does overlap with mine. Every name he's ever mentioned liking to me were...
I think my opinion probably comes from the fact that I go by a cutesy nickname (similar to some of the ones on your list), but I also like the option of using my longer full name. I like my nickname...
From your list, these are my favorites. I've also bolded and commented on my favorites of the favorites. I'm not really a fan of the short nickname-y names for first names, because I guess just don't...
Hero and Azalea - Cute, but the set seems a little off-balance to me. Personally I would prefer Hero and Azula together
Poesy and Indigo - Love Indigo, but think Poesy is a tough name, both to spell...
Mee-lo. Like the masculine version of "Mila" (mee-la)

Other names I love, but no combos yet:

I'll be honest and say I don't think it's a big deal in most cases. If your kids are going to see each other all the time, then maybe you might want to consider a different name, but otherwise I...

My list used to be a little less tame, but as we seriously started talking about names it became clear that some of the more out there ones wouldn't work. My partner has much tamer taste in names,...

There are so many names I love, but I know I can never use because they just don't work in German. We live in Germany and our kids will attend a local school so it's extra important that the name...
If you both like Brynn, but doesn't work with your last name, what about Bryony or Briony?
Some other suggestions:

Are you opposed to the written -ia/-a ending or the sound? Because a lot of names that don't end in those letters will still have that pronunciation in German. We're also a bilingual household...
Ruby Victoria is a gorgeous name, a really nice mix of trendy, stylish and classic.
Some boy names that I think would go with big sister Ruby and the middle name Patrick. I think a shorter,...

I understand that a lot of people truly care about meaning when naming their baby (especially here on this site), but to be honest most people don't. I think a great majority of parents just pick...

Personally I would be very wary adopting from China. I work half the year in China and there are a lot of current (and documented) scandals where babies are essentially stolen from their mothers at...
I would pronounce it as Ad-ah-leen, but personally I prefer the name Adelina.
If you really want the pronunciation Ad-ah-lyn, then I think Adelyn is the only way to spell it, unless you're OK...
Fair enough. I do know quite a few little Arias around this area, so I included it, because it does seem to be growing in popularity, but really it's a personal decision whether someone would want to...
How are you pronouncing Ottoline?
Of the names you listed I love Ottoline Grey. I wouldn't be too worried about the initials - anything bad is really quite a stretch and most kids don't use their...

I wouldn't overlook the potential medical and behavioral issues that can arise with international adoptions, because logistically you just won't be able to adopt a newborn from abroad like you could...

Personally I think there are too many pitfalls with international adoption, not just logistically, but also ethically. If I were to ever consider adoption for myself, I would only look domestically....
Catherine is just a beautiful, classic name. I think it will always be popular in some sense, because it is such a recognizable classic, but never trendy or dated. I think it's a great name that a...
I think Sasha could work on a boy in the US, but probably only as a nickname. To me it would be simialr to naming your boy Ashley - originally a male name, but has become decidedly female.
