Key-ARR-uh - because I know someone with that name and that's the pronunciation they use. Though I could see some accents might say Key-AIR-uh.
I love Anna Katherine, it's on my own list, and Anna Kate is darling. And as a Sophie myself, I can vouch for it being a great name to have. Genevieve is a bit more versatile in terms of nicknames...
If I didn't have to have any input from OH, I'd probably go with Phoebe Rebecca and Imogen Charlotte.

From the 'Due Date Unknown' list, Tina Malone and Paul Chase's daughter Flame was born in December: http://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-news/tina-malone-new-baby-50-2951703
Hmm, if Laura, Lauren, Laurel and Wren are all out:
Cadence/anything else with an -ence ending really
Yeah, a lot of those names fit into the 'vintage' category but I think those sorts of names are coming back in style. I know a Ruth and a Gary who are my age (early 20s) and there's celebs who have...

Just what I was going to say. I think it often has an accent above the E as well, though whether that would be recorded formally I don't know.
Some of these names aren't all that bizarre at all,...

If you like Emma but want something a little more unusual to go with True and Alaia, how about something that could nickname down to Em or Emma?
Emine (pronounced like Emily but with a N,...
I don't have kids of my own but when I was a kid I used to take swimming lessons and go to Brownies/Guides. I also played sport after school, both school-run clubs and ones that weren't attached to a...
ELL-en-uh would be my first guess, then Ell-EN-uh (slight shift in emphasis - though I'd go for that first if it was a double N). I wouldn't go for El-AY-nuh with the double L at all.
Names that spring to mind from the description:
Eleanor (nn Ellie maybe)
If her parents are military, maybe they named her after somewhere they were...

I haven't dreamed names of my own children, but I have dreamed my close friend was pregnant with a baby boy she named Spencer Matthew, the middle name after the baby's father. This friend happens to...
Charlotte's definitely not a grandma name - I don't know where you are with regards to regional popularity but I know quite a lot of Charlottes, from mid-20s down to toddler age, and not a single...

How are you pronouncing it? AL-to or ALL-to? The former sounds better to me as a name because the Al- beginning is fairly familiar in male names - Alan, Alex, Alfie etc. Also, there's the chef Aldo...
I'm watching it tonight and geeking out about going to the 50th anniversary celebration event at the ExCeL, London, tomorrow - I secured a press pass for it on Thursday and I'm going to be live...
Haha, yeah, I love both the character and the actress.
The only Stevie I know in real life is Stephanie nn Stevie, but she's exclusively Stevie. I do like the Stella Eve type smoosh idea - though...
My first thought was Ophelia Betsy.
Sophie and her variants go even further back in the Dahl family, as his mother was named Sofie Magdalene.
And there's some very Berry names in recent branches of the Dahl family tree too;...
I've only ever known one Daphne, and she just so happens to be my 80+ year old neighbour. Because of that, I struggle to picture it on a little girl. I don't think it's all that popular, but has the...

Yeah, I think changing Olivia to something a bit more classic 70s might be better. Heather or Laura would be fine for her, but I'd be cautious about switching Hilary to Myra, as that name has strong...
I'm 9,500 in, but I need to do a big surge at the start else I'll have no chance of making the 50k by the end of the month.
@fey - How about: "Despite their differences, they grew up inseparable....

Trying to suss out your family trees but there's only a couple of names that strikes me as off. I'd see Olivia as only really suiting a teen or younger, and I find Hilary rather dated - I wouldn't...
My favourite of all the Rose names is Rosa, but of your list I'd go with Rosalie or Rose.
Yeah, I'd pronounce it as Keer-a as that's the legitimate Irish pronunciation, and the Ciaras I've known say it that way. I never even knew people pronounced it like Sierra until there was a singer...
