End of message!
I hear ya' dramagrl. I wonder why Emily is regarded as more of a Katherine than a Lindsey. Yes, it was too popular for too long, but I think after cooling off a bit, people will come to hear it as...
I am also liking Maisie, Edith, Mirren, Ada and -- Fanny!
For boys, I remain a confirmed stick in the mud. :) I like Caspian, but I am too much of a nickname person to go with it --...
Yep, Haley is dated. If you use it, do so knowing that. If you want fresh, keep looking.

I love the idea of Tallulah-Belle! And let me throw into the mix Henrietta -- Etta or Hetta.
I also like your list. I think many of your choices would be cute on a Dane. I think it is more of case...
Is Eyelet too far out there? Simply -- yes. Even though my tastes error on the side of conservative, I think even by more liberal naming standards Eyelet is too weird. Other have made some nice...
Ooooh. Hard to choose! Two such great options! I like Caspian -- but I love Soren!
I do like Caspian just a shade better with Parisa, but I just think Soren is great choice. If it fits your baby,...

I know I'm odd, but I'm tired of Oliver -- for no defensible reason. It's one of the great names of our time. Maybe that is why! Of this lot, I rather like Spencer.

I love Imogen as general rule, but taking into consideration all the specifics of your case, I'm loving -- LOVING -- Felicity! Southern -- yet you.
I think it is okay with your boys. If I picked...

I also wanted to suggest Mirren. This is clipped from the nameberry take on the name:
Mirren is one modern spelling of a mysterious group of names that all seem to derive from the sixth century...

Bronte Sky is just rockin' in my opinion

I'm still catching up with the thread, so forgive me if this doesn't seem fresh -- that highly valued nameberry quality.
I don’t mean to be harsh, but “Kitten” – just name her “Stripper” and be...
I am not a fan of Clarence, although it is a family name (one great uncle).
I think it has some currency, strictly as a boy's name, in the African American community. Outside of that, it does not...

I can't help loving Ava Grace despite huge popularity. Think about it carefully before you discard this choice. Yes, there are genuine issues with popular names -- but not all parents regret giving...

Not too Harry Potter, but posting from the Great Basin (Rocky Mountains, U.S.), it does seem a bit too snooty Brit. But if Snooty Brit is what you are after -- you are probably on the right trail. In...
I like the European pronunciation best -- eye-REE-nee. That tweaks it from fusty to cute for me. If you are in the States, you are going to have trouble getting others on board with saying it...
Too many 's's, it seems to me. I like pairing a girly-girl name with a unisex or even boys' name, but I am not sold right now on this one.
One criticism -- for me it sounds as though it is maiden...
Thank you everyone for the thoughtful responses. I was cheered by all the encouragement -- maybe it is not as crazy as I thought.
I have tried on some other middle names in my brain, but...
I still like Rose in the middle, even though I know that has become taboo. I like Clementine -- yeah -- I'm one of those. :) But I assumed that Clementine Rose just wouldn't work, even though I...

Riley and Jameson (or any last name first that has significance for your family and you like, a maiden name, grandparent's name, etc.)
Riley and Beau (Beaumont, Beauford)
Riley and Zander
By the way, I clipped from Nameberry's take on Ariel:
Although its wave has crested, Ariel is still a name any little girl would love. It is also associated with the poetry of Sylvia Plath and...
I second Ariella! Hear, hear!
I do know an Ariel, however -- a niece-in-law. I thought her name was a delightful surprise. I have no doubt from her age that her mom was inspired by the Little...
Absolutely! I get bored with names, move on -- or sometimes I meet someone who ruins a name for me. And then I fall in love with new names.
I used to love Chloe -- and while I still do, I think it...

Hear hear. Melusine is magic. Think "Possession." And if you haven't read it -- READ IT! Mermaids are Aphrodite's true followers! Aphrodite, you know, was born of the sea.
Melusine is -- ...
