Lol about the accent! I can see how that might do a number on certain names, haha! I am jealous though. Wish I had a cool accent.
Yeah the biggest issue I'm thinking as far as saying the name is...
Right. Liana is neither "Lee-anna" nor "Lye-anna" as mentioned in the op. It's definitely lee-AHN-uh.
I've recently started to feel pretty down on my girls' list, and needed some new inspiration. I read through one of the NB ebooks ("Cool Names") and stumbled across this.
Auretta means "gentle...
Yeah I'm not seeing any "hate" on this thread, or anywhere else, for this classic name. People don't tend to trash classics like Emily around here.
It was the number one baby name for over a...
@jessieo - thank you! It's nice to hear from someone else who knows exactly what this is like. Quite the emotional roller coaster. I'm thinking you're right about that vacation...AF and I could both...
Is this really an issue, you think? Are people going to think I named my child after a nipple?!
(p.s., nice to see you around here again, Blade!)
Aurelia is climbing up to the top of my list lately. I've seen a couple old threads discussing the pronunciation, but not a poll yet, so I thought I'd start one!
The first syllable is "au" as in...
@whitecloud, @moonkai, & @beth - Thank you so much for your support. :) I still feel disappointed but it's nice to be able to see the positive in a situation like this. Gonna start OPKs in about a...
@beth & @asch - Thanks so much :) It did end up being a chemical. Started bleeding today and it's not that bad but definitely more than what my usual periods are like. I think I knew intuitively that...
We have kind of similar tastes! I like a lot of your choices.
Aurelia This is a front runner for me right now. To me it strikes the perfect balance of being very uncommon, yet not...
Well, it's been a crazy past few days for me.
We did one unprotected BD early this month and then I started feeling a little stressed out from a lot of different things, so we decided to hold off...

Wow, what timing! I very recently sort of fell in name-love with Cassius/Cassian and wasn't sure which one I liked more. Glad I found this thread!
I think you could definitely get away with either...

I need boy help.
Husband and I have one name that we're pretty set on, that also goes well with my favorites from my girls' list—Mattias. It's a family name and if we have a boy, I'm fairly...

I like Madeleine or Matilda/Mathilda to get to Maddy/Mattie.
Madison was trendy 10 years ago and for some awful reason continues to remain popular. Would you really want to name your daughter,...

Your husband is 100% right about Jacqueline.
Felicity is absolutely darling. Felicity Jean has the most charming, Southern vibe... I just love that combo for you. Imogen (imma-jen) would honor...

Added to the list:
There are several others that I really love but can't use due to similarity with (or being the exact same name as) a friend/relative's name.

Why would referring to "African" or "Asian" names would be insensitive? If it's an African name, it's an African name. Maybe it's specifically a Kenyan name, but using the word "African" doesn't make...

My taste in names over the last couple years has evolved to a style that is fairly consistent—I like pleasant-sounding, uncommon, yet not unheard of names that have a European sort of traditional...
I think Sylvie Isobella is really lovely.
As already pointed out, the two "v" names are a no-go. It makes for a triple "v" sound— "Syl-VEE-Vi-VEE-en."
But I'd like to add that "Lua" means...

I also have a grandfather named Leo, and we're considering Leonora for a girl to honor him. :)
(would pronounce "LAY-ah-NORa")
I am really not a fan of Sebastian... sorry! The name doesn't have any sort of meaning, and has NO good nick name possibilities. It sounds so formal and stuffy. Without a usable nickname, even...

My policy is that a veto is a veto. I wouldn't want to name my kid a name that his father hated, even if only at first.
And looking back over names I've brought to the table in the past, I'm glad...
Harold Arthur, or Francis Arthur.
Frederick, Wallace, and Walter are a little too far on the old-fashioned swing of things for me. "Wally" does not appeal to me and sounds weak. "Freddy" I could...
Ditto on the "please no" to Jaxton. That is just beyond dreadful.
I would prefer Jax to Jaxon because the latter is just trying to put a "youneek" spin on an already trendy name.
I also second...

Lincoln (the repetitive "k" sound in Lincoln Kai I don't like, though. Would prefer Lincoln Birch, Lincoln Atlas, Lincoln Archer)
