This is an interesting subject!
I always felt that boys got the short end of the naming-stick. I certainly never saw it as girls being taken less seriously or valued less, although that's certainly...
stripedsocks - I really like Cillian and will have to try suggesting it to hubby again. (He vetoed it last time.)
Ch- names are fine even if they have the softer sound, although I agree it will...
mkmlvr - Wow, that's a big list of C names! Will have to work my way through it. Thanks!
Ashleyjuliette - Cyprus we had once considered but weren't sure if it was too feminine sounding. ...
A long while ago I posted about C- names for boys and here I am again!
Against all odds and after years of searching we managed to pick out a C- boy name (Cirdan). Unfortunately a good friend just...

First I've just got to say, I love your name style! I also relate to your conundrum since my husband and I have great difficulty agreeing on names!
I did my best to read through the entire thread...

I used to love going to cemeteries and reading the names as a child. A little morbid maybe but I didn't think twice about it! Also obituaries, movie credits, donation plaques, theatre programs,...

Just a quick thought I didn't see mentioned: The nickname I naturally gravitate toward with Cordelia is Delly, which I think is sweet and fits in with your other kids' nicknames!
Best of luck...
I'm in the minority here, but I don't like using nicknames for longer names. In my experience everyone I know that has a formal name is only ever really known by their nickname. And those who have...

Sorry for any repeats!
Names with the "ay" sound:
Just had to say, too - it must be a regional thing, because I've met every single one of the names you listed! And certainly not just children. I knew a Wyatt, Jasper and Juniper all my age (mid to...
For what it's worth you do have some measure of control of what nickname your child is called by, at least in the beginning. I made it quite clear to my family that I didn't want my children to be...
Well I don't think any names make me angry, really, just annoyed.
I agree with a previous poster - it bothers me that names can go from boy to girl but not back again. So I'm not a fan of boys...

Oh man, yes. Mostly when it comes to what they think of as popular vs unusual. I find it's most prevalent with firstborns, since the parents generally aren't around the local little'uns until...
Love these names! I think they sound great together! :) Willa is also lovely, but if you are concerned about the endings being similar, go with Sage/Saige. Definitely no problem with the G's in...
In agreement with elea: C- with a vowel is actually pronounced as a hard K sound, at least for the Elvish names. I did a lot of researching on this since we plan on using a LOTR name for our next...

I second Behind The Name! It's my go-to for etymological name info! Lots of unusual names there!
Just a quick two cents: a friend of mine just had a son named Adrian and I don't think it's too feminine at all. I also love Dorian. I went to school with a Dorian who went by Dory - he was a very...
I would say if you must use it, stick to Ariel as a middle name only- I think pop culture has ruined it for the boys.
Would you consider the name Aviel, Avriel, Avril or even Errol? Similar...
What a lovely name! Theodore and Philip are gorgeous together, as are Teddy and Pip Too darling! Congrats!
P.S. May I ask why you wouldn't use Evelyn if your hubby's middle name is Evan? I think it would be a lovely tribute! (Unless I'm misunderstanding something, which is entirely possible!) :)
Well I think all the names you've chosen are lovely so it's hard to go wrong! It's true that full intials are rarely used, unless you are into monogramming, and then it's often: (First initial)...

Oh I've been there. The good news is it will pass! It might take another couple of months but she will get there! :)
I thought my daughter had a pretty straight forward name too, but you wouldn't...

Just thought I'd interject a thought about Stella. It's a gorgeous name and pairs beautifully with August but it is popular.
It may seem less so, but the plethora of -ella names is...
