I love Zinnia. Alot. It's like my favorite name. However, with Sage it's just too much. Pearl, I could possibly handle. Grace, Faye, Joy, June, etc. all ok. Sage is just way to plant-y with it, and...
Thank you all so much for your thoughts. Looks like I need to move Jasper/Caspar over to the guilty pleasures list, but they really are too close to Oscar. Thanks again for the help． ：）
Wow, thank you all so much for the feedback! It's interesting seeing everyone's takes on my favorites. happymama1, I'm not currently pregnant or trying; maybe next year or so, but I'll be sure to let...
I'm sorry, but the idea of Ottilie or Adelaide being trendy is laughable. I guarantee that the average joe American has never even heard of Ottilie before. And Ophelia is popular, but not even on the...

I think I was about 15 when I picked these out?
Devonny Brynn Aurelia
Danica Raye Celeste
Alec Adrian Scott
Tyler Daniel Brent.
Needless to say, my tastes have definitely matured. ;)

Sylvie is a French name in it's own right; it certainly has enough gravitas to stand alone. If anyone asks, tell them Sylvie is the French form of Sylvia and leave it at that.
Adrienne? I think Adrian and Avery are super handsome, stylish names- for boys.
Otherwise, how about Evelyn up front?

Thank you for your thoughts, everyone. :)
Kit comes across as less cutesy than Kitty, so in that sense, it's better. However, it still sounds very familiar/nicknamish, so I'd still rather a full name, simply because I'm a big fan of options....
Jeannette comes from Jean, which is a feminization of John. You could just use any of the John variants. There are tons.
My son's chinese name is Jia Xiang, and the Xiang part means 'to soar'. Fei means 'to fly' in Chinese (pronounced like Faye). Both characters can be used for girls. I think in general Chinese names...
Paloma and Jemima / Yemima mean 'dove'. (Spanish and Hebrew, respectively)
Tzipporah means 'bird' in Hebrew.
Alya means sky in Arabic.
Sora is 'sky' in Japanese.
Celeste means 'of the...
I like Th names too, but they are too difficult for Chinese speakers.
I love Clementine and like Clementina and Seraphina. They definitely fit your desire for long girly names that aren't common. ;) Esmeralda is too tied to the Hunchback character, giving it that...
I go back and forth on Odin. I do really love it, but sometimes think it might just be too much. If the surname was something more 'traditional' a la Miller or Morris, I might just consider it, but...
As in the girl's list, these are husband pre-approved. We have a harder time with the boys. Thoughts on our list?
Haha! Thank you guys so much. Mostly these are my ideas; he's just approved him. If he was naming a girl, she'd be Catherine, Johanna, Marina or Ramona. If I was naming a girl myself, she'd be...
This is the husband pre-approved list for a future girl. Thoughts?
Loretta Elizabeth is a mouthful, and I don't care for Loretta anyway. Margaret Elizabeth would be ok. Josephine Elizabeth is pretty, if a bit bland. Saoirse Elizabeth is extremely beautiful and...
I don't think it's too much. It's not more name than Isabella, Elizabeth, Seraphina or Penelope. The pronunciation may pose some difficulties.

I don't see any problem with it. If anything, it's a sweet connection and story to share.

Thank you two! I've added these to the 'think about' list:
Simon (our previous 2nd choice for Oscar)
Jasper (already on the list)
Kitty is an adorable vintage nickname, but just doesnt work as a full name for me. It'd be difficult to take a 'Kitty' seriously in a professional environment. I would also want to option of...
Honestly, it sounds terrible. I would definitely not be ready for travel at that stage. Heck, at 2-3 weeks postpartum, you are still in survival mode. It's all you can do to get through the day and...
