As a Denise, I have to speak up for the name. It's actually made a kinda cool resurgence of recent among TV shows casting young blonde actresses if that helps change perspective any...
Loved it ever since I read Ben Elton's Two Brothers. You might get a few pronunciation issues but I say go for it.
My name hasn't been used in NSW since 2004 from the looks of things and it's not on the Vic list either! I'm in SA but can't track that anymore - BDM used to publish all names...
Mine was in the top 10 about 20 years before I was born. It was on the downturn in a big way by the time I got it and I think it's in the late 600s in the US now (no way of tracking it in Australia...

My partner was born in between Xmas and new years and can't stand it to the point that we didn't TTCin March, April or May just to make sure we could avoid it for our children! As a child, nobody...
Annika Rosealine arrived 6:20 last night Australian time (18 October) in quite a hurry!
Her big sister Claudia Vivian is quite besotted with her.
Everyone is doing so well - we are very much in...
We're 38+4 here, first names will most likely be Harriet or Annika (Nina or Keira as outside chances).
Middle names are a mess and DP isn't really interested in matching them.
Out of the...

As an Aussie who turned down Richmond as a suggestion for similar reasons (although I support the Bulldogs and live interstate...)
There is no way you'd get away without most people making the...
1. Agatha - Yay
2. Angelique - Nay, prefer Angela or Angelina
3. Antonia - Yay
4. Araminta - Nay, a little OTT for me
5. Atalanta - Nay, would forever be mistaken for Atlanta
6. Athena - Nay,...
I loved it so much I used it for my DD1. It really suits her!
How about Matisse, for another Mat name?

That's interesting that paid work is seen as something that the man "gets" to do like it's a privilege but being a SAHM or using childcare is sonething a woman "has" to do.
This comnent is from...

The "I'm carrying the baby so I'm naming the baby" attitude of the author is really selfish and quite awful.
Yes, she is going through a lot physically to carry the child - but biologically it is...
Sorry but I really dislike it.
Firstly the Harpy connection - and secondly it sounds to me like a person who is always harping on (incessantly whinging - not sure if it's just Australian slang or...

Very few of my friends really have used names that I'd use for my children and there's a few I absolutely dislike, but only two are that disappointing.
The first had the baby quite suddenly and...
@tct1219 - nah, Georgia.
I know it's only a MN rumour but I am shallow enough to strike it off.
That rumour has been floating around since the pregnancy announcement - and an unnamed "source close to the couple" or a birth certificate unsighted by anyone except People magazine doesn't mean it's...

I'm not sure if you can tell hair and eye colour from birth - so many babies are born with blue eyes that change to brown or grey within the first year or two.
However we waited until we saw our...

I greatly prefer Leo to Caden.
However, I could be reading you wrong but are the middle names both your family and your choice? If so I'd probably give greater weight to his preference.
I quite like the new layout but I can't get either the blog or bonus blog to load on my phone (Samsung Galaxy II).
I try and load the blogs and they show up for about 15 seconds then white screen....
I would love Harriet Beatrice Winter, nickname Hattie (although I do prefer the NN of Etta myself). Not the hugest fan of Hattie as a full name.
Second would be Jane Agatha Gwendolen - both Agatha...

My partner and I are having a baby, due in October. We're only 11 weeks so we don't know the sex yet, but we've got a couple of very strong girls' name possibilities and we're pretty...

Apart from that freaking irritating aardvark and his sister DW...
I actually quite like it but am deterred from using it for two reasons - firstly I'll go against the grain and say that I really...

Clover is sweet, as is Caroline.
I prefer Camille to Camilla, and Celia to Cecelia. Nota fan of Cordelia at all.
