Alice Jane is a beautiful name! Mary Alice reads senior citizen to me. Allie or Allie Jane work well as nicknames. I personally would leave it, but if it is really bothering you, then just do it!...
I like Harlow best. Either nickname set you have is lovely, but I voted for Harlow Isabel Rose as it is a bit more unique (as mentioned the first thought with Harlow Winter ... is Nicole Richie). I'm...
I think most Di- names could get you there.
Depending on your style:
I like the 2 middle name trend, but in this case the simple beauty of Aurelia Jane outweighs the double middle name. Perfect mix of fantasy & tradition.
Ari is a great nickname! Aura, Relli, Li...

What about Evie just as it is? I know one who's full first name is Evie (ehh-vee) and I've always liked it.
Imogen (a name recently suggested to me)

I'm relieved to hear that your name worked out! Maybe we'll get lucky as well. We rejected the other names I listed for a few reasons. 1) My step-daughter has a speech impediment so "r" names like...
Vivienne is lovely!
Charlotte (though becoming popular)
Eugenie (classic, different & royal)
Everleigh (modern, yet with a romantic vibe)

We have only one girl's name that we can agree on: Eleni (middle name in progress). However, everyone I know that has recently had a baby has ended up thinking the name they picked didn't work and...

I like Rupert, Mal & Theo for boys (and NO they are not at all out there!)
At first glance, I would probably say Leerah when I read Lyra, but it's very pretty with either pronunciation.
I like Camille. Sophisticated, lovely and easy to grow with - she could be an artist or a professional with that name.
Freya is on my list for sure! I also like Effy as I haven't see it often and it has a great vintage feel to it.
Ada and Ottile (which I just learned to pronounce thanks to this forum) are not my...
We will be naming our daughter Eleni (many thanks to the berries that helped us pick that one!) and really want to use my first name (Evie) as her middle name as my name has a lot of family meaning....
I think Ria would work or just Ri. If you call her Harriet she may not go by a nickname at all. My parents always called me by my full name and there are very few people I will let call me by a...

I like the femininity of Anneliese.
I recently read "Her Daughter's Dream" by Francine Rivers and the main character names her daughter May Flower Dawn. I think it's usable, though the separation might be nice so she has the option of...

I wouldn't share IRL either - I'm prepared for my mom & MIL to hate my name, but I'm not worried about the berries! Since they've helped me pick the first name for my first (due in Oct), I'll be back...

First, if you love it, do it!
Second, I think it goes with the recent trends. For example, Clementine & Olive. I also like that your mixing a newer name with a traditional, family-honoring middle....

Very creative suggestions! Thank you!
I love Eleni! Also considering Adelina & Milena.
I should note that we were avoiding Lenore/Eleanor as our last name has a similar "ore" sound in the middle...

I also think of the Bible story - but I think people would get past it as they got to know your little girl.
I do agree that some names don't suit certain babies, call me crazy, but as soon as I...
I think Violet is lovely and Emaline has a nice sound to it as well. I prefer Emelia to Amelia.
What about Eleanor/a/?
I think Samara is beautiful! And goes quite well with your last name.
I also prefer Lin or Brynn over Lynn.

DH & I love the name Leni for our daughter, but I'm wondering if we should use Leni as a nickname for something longer - so she has a more classic or professional name for later in life.
I actually like Seeley. It's in my top 20 for a boy but I won't be able to use it as it sounds awful with my last name (also ending with a strong "ee" sound). And even if other people do think of...

Gianna or Wren?
