I vote for Alessandra! I was born in the 80's and went to school with 7 Alexandra's all nn'ed Alex, so it feels a little dated and tired to me. But I do appreciate that it's a classic. I love the...

I'm 28 and have never actually heard the song - but I still think of it immediately! I can imagine that my family would sing it at us if we used the name. But it probably is fading out
I've only had one naming dream - we had a little boy named Abraham nn Bram. I'd never considered it before and now it's on my list! (although I prefer Abram!). I told my husband and he thought it was...

This is tricky!
Votes for Camille, Camilla and Romilly!
I'm in Australia and Amelia is crazy popular! Millicent is sweet but feels very old fashioned compared to the others.
Definitely Miles! Miles Walden would be lovely!

I have a soft spot for Carey on it's own! It probably won't get the nameberry love but I just think it's so sweet sounding :)
Otherwise I vote for Elodie or Quinn. How about Aquinnah?

I second the suggestions of Luca and Eli! Or how about:
I think Matilda is gorgeous! Her sounds are a little clunky or quirky, which may be contributing to your Mum's reaction (along with the generational differences!). But it's a fun and easy name to say...

I think Sylvia works well with your sibset :) It doesn't sound too similar to Zelda, and they both have a lovely old fashioned charm. To be a pernickety berry, it doesn't quite have the same...
I don't particularly like my name but I'd never consider changing it. My parents both loved it and it's meaningful for that reason, particularly as my father passed away relatively young and I miss...
Ooh I LOVE your children's names! If my husband was a little more compliant (haha), I could see us having a little Adeline and Theodore in the future. I've been trying to sell Adeline to him for...
I voted for Nora - Classic and fresh! Norma and Noreen read old lady to me, and Nadine and Nadia seem 80's!

I really like Jeremiah! It seems much fresher than Jeremy to me. I know a very cute 4 year old Jeremiah nn Jerry - although I'd personally use Jem!
I think they're pretty borderline in terms of similarity! Yes the first initial and last letter are the same, but the sounds are very different. Do you nickname your Fiona? Fi/Fia and Florrie are...
I think Joel David is very handsome! I always found Joel a bit awkward to say, but then I met an absolutely adorable one year old with the name and I've been won over! They call him Joey as a nn and...
I think it's fine! Twilight's on the way out, he's a fairly minor character and it's a classic, traditional name. Twilight isn't the first thing I think of when I hear Jasper! I actually think...

I actually prefer Elinor! I read it in Sense and Sensibility as a 12 year old and it took me a while to connect that it was the same name as Eleanor - a girl I went to school with whose name I didn't...

I think Fern and Miles are lovely!
I also don't really understand the appeal of Lucy!
I second the suggestion of Louisa. Or how about Lucilla (I read this in a book once and found it interesting!), Annabeth (I confess that I watch...
My instinct is to say My-la, like Miley and Lila. But I've read that it's Me-la, like Mia. Either way it's pretty but I find it a bit confusing!

My husband also says a quick yes/no to names and is very reluctant to discuss them. He also just blurts out the first association that comes into his head after I suggest a name, and it's usually...
Zebedee hasn't been suggested yet! And I second Boaz
