I am close friends with a set of fraternal twins, Claire and Kate. They are VERY different in appearance and fashion and affect but so the same in other ways. I never thought of their names as being...
I plan to use Lettie as a nickname for Juliette. It's not as obvious but all of the letters are there.

I don't expect someone to spell my name "Jeanne" as "Jeanne" and am pleasantly surprised when they actually spell it "Jean" and not "Gene". I'm not a boy. Do people not realize Gene is a boy's name? ...
Hmm. I love Rosa and I love Alba but I know if I had a child Rosalba, I would never have the energy to use her full name with two amazing nn built in. As a middle, Rosalba is the winner. Rosabelle...
What @mrsallwood said. I thought you were asking about a son. Sawyer is all boy to me. Sailor could go either way.
Use it or a variation with Georgia as the nn (Georgiana (Geor-jan-a).
Husband's cousin used Nathan two years ago after his Grandfather. We will be using Nathaniel nn Nathan but we would have used...

I've responded to a few of these same pronunciation questions. I'm from the NY / NJ area originally. Most of the people from my hometown and nearby would say "Cah-ra" pronouncing "Cah" like the "Ca"...

I like the name Bryce better, but Wyatt and Cole sound better as a sibset to me. I would chose the preferred name over how it sounds with his brother, however.

This is easy. My last name is Gre-en. Quite a few to list.
I happen to be 1/2 French and love names with the long "een" sound at the end. But no Celine, Delphine, Seraphine for me.
I also love...

Cecily. I think it's beautiful but it means blind.

I think Felix and Janie is just fine! Adorable.
If you don't allow people to call him Fred and he doesn't allow people to call him Fred, then he won't be Fred.
I've always hated being called...

I prefer the female versions of George, e.g. Georgia and Georgiana.
I like Tessa, Nora, Paige and Claire with Ryan. I like other versions of Anna names with Ryan, but Annalise and Annette feel a bit too stuffy to go with Ryan. Anna would be nice.
As already mentioned, I say Lucien as Loo-see-en and Lucian as "Loo-shen". I prefer Lucian.
This is exactly what I mean! Thank you.
Thanks for the responses, everyone!
I do not say the "a" in antelope" and the a in "apple" in the same way. I'm discovering that many people do.
The "a" in "antelope" is heavier. The "a" in...
Most of you are probably thinking this should be easy. Since relocating, I've become sensitive to the small variations in pronunciation by region, and those slight differences to me can make a huge...

This post made me somewhat sad to read. I knew one Johanna growing up and she was a sweet and energetic girl whose name was pronounce Jo-Hanna. Until this post, I thought that pronunciation or...
I pronounce the A in Ada like the A in apple. My coworker is Adana and Ada is her nn. I would pronounce Aida and Ayda and A in April. You're always going to get people saying differently. I think...

Sully sounds very different from Carson but still works perfectly with your sib-set.
Brennan and Ronan share the same "on" "an" ending as Carson and are both two syllables. ...
Susannah is my all-time favorite. If I have a daughter, we'll probably use the full name most of the time, but I love the nickname Sosie (and Zuzu, but Zuzu doesn't age very well).
