I'm a big fan of antique names! My favorites:
Agatha (love love love agatha!)
I think Nella is adorable! I think the -a at the end instead of the -ie makes it a nickname that doesn't sound like it only belongs on a little girl. And its even cuter that big sister picked it out.
I love so many of the names on your list!
My favorites with your son's name:
Amelia & Sebastien
Emeline & Sebastien
Evangeline & Sebastien
Madeleine & Sebastien
If you are open to a...
I think its really cute actually. And the fact that its a family name just makes it better. I'm from a region where family names are considered gender neutral, so I wouldn't worry about it at all. If...
My name is Merideth (same as Meredith, I take no responsibility for the spelling) and, while I have met quite a few other girl Meredith's over the course of my lifetime, I've never met a male with...

I really think they are both cute, but I agree with a lot of the PPs that I see Remy as a french boy name. I guess its due in large part because my son loves the Disney movie Ratatouille and Remy is...
Thanks so much for the great feedback everyone! I love hearing all the love for Mary. Since it is so short, I love the idea of putting a longer name in the middle spot.
I've been crushing a bit...

Some less common options:
I don't think its TOO dated, but it definitely seems 80s to me. There is a little girl in my son's preschool class named Courtney (which I think is a similar era to Heather), and when I hear it I...

I think its totally acceptable. I know girls named Mary Charles, Ann Rob, and Carlton (after grandfather Carl). I think, depending on the name, you could even use it in the first spot. I think...
I think Mary Coraline as a double name is just adorable. I also love the suggestion of Moira.
I've never given Mary too much thought...its always seemed like just a vessel to get to a more expressive middle name (Mary Catherine, Mary Grace, Mary Elizabeth, Mary Frances, Mary + mom's maiden...
Thanks so much for the input everybody! Keep the ideas coming. I am perfectly fine with names that are a stretch. The most important thing to me is that we love both names.
My great grandmother's...
Hubby and I have been discussing girls names since before DS Jack was born 3 years ago, and have finally come to a name we agree on...kinda. We both love the nn Lollie. I had it on my list as a nn...

I know a few girls named Lynlee. It's definitely a nod to Linda Lou with the double L sound and the Lin- sound at the beginning without that bulky -Linda sound at the back like you get with Bekinda...
I love Martha as a beginner for a double name. As a southern girl, I love pairing classics together to get something unique and cute. I went to school with a Martha Ellen and Martha Kate or Martha...
Compared to my other name crushes these are pretty no frills
I think any of the nicknamey names would work. The first things that came to my mind was:

I love Cecilia as well! It's on my list too. Here are some underused classics (in my opinion) that have the grace to go with Cecilia:
Louisa Jean (Louisa & Cecilia)
Annabel Jean (Annabel &...
My name is actually Merideth (a cre8ive spelling that I don't reccomend) and I will confess that I have only recently started to appreciate my name. When I was younger I was jealous of girls with...
I think Lux could be a nickname for any of the "Alex" names: Alexandra, Alexis, Alexia, Alexandria. I even ran across an alternate spelling Alexus. I can also see maybe Louise, Luisa.
Thanks so much for everyone's input! I haven't run Genevieve by DH yet, but the more I say it the more adorable I think it is.
I love it in full, but we are nickname people so I'd love to have a...
Our last name is a German sounding two syllable name. I actually like alliteration normally. I tried to sell DH on Violet or Victoria V., but he wasn't interested in them. I only worry that the first...
I've recently started loving the name Genevieve and think it fits in perfectly with my list of "useable antiques". My only concern is that our last name begins with a V. Does Genevieve sound too...
I'd say that a bigger concern than the "next" issue is how similar it is to nix. I'd have a problem giving a person a name that means "nothing" or "to forbid, refuse or veto". It seems like such a...
