Jane Eyre is a great book. I think you will like it more than you think you will. If you like classics at all you will definitely appreciate Jane Eyre. I also read Villette by Charlotte Bronte,...

Having kids in college is possible, but it would be so much easier to get your degree first. If you get engaged soon, you can plan your wedding to distract yourself from wanting to TTC, then once...

I find it sad that this decision almost always defaults to the husband. So many of you have said "It's important to HIM" or "HE is very conservative/traditional". What about the importance of...
I'm not usually a fan of changing spellings to accommodate a different nationality, but what about Eili? It's only taking off the last two letters, not butchering the spelling entirely. I did know...
I LOVE Elsie as a nickname, but I definitely think it needs a full name to go with it. Our last names begin with C and if I have a girl and her name begins with L I will probably call her Elsie (LC)...

Bellatrix Laetitia Noor is beautiful!
Yes, the two "ab" sounds are too much together. The fact that both of them are three syllables and both have the stress on the first syllable also contributes.
What middle names would go well with Liv (not a nickname for anything, just Liv)?
My husband's last name is Swedish with an American spelling, and I've lived in Scandinavia, so I am sort of...

I really like names that relate somehow to space, yet aren't too "out there" (pun intended?). I like Io and Dione, but I want to stay away from names that are directly after planets/stars but still...
Haha, that novel is where my username came from. The Rue Fossette is a street in the novel. So maybe Fossette?

If I had to choose a variant of Lily, I would just choose Lily. Most Lilians and Lilianas end up getting called Lily anyway. Lily stands on its own just fine.
What do you think of these two names and which do you like better?
I can see Liv getting popular very soon. I have only ever encountered Liva in one book I read and have never seen it on a...

If you want to pronounce it Vera but spell it differently, it at least has to still be phonetic. Vyera is not phonetic. Me no likey.
It's a cool name in theory, but maybe an alternative like Magga would be more practical? I can't help thinking of volcanoes wreaking havoc on people/cities when I hear Magma.

Avery. It seems like most people I work with have a kid named Avery. I just don't get it. It's not terrible, but it doesn't appeal to me at all.
As for the second question, I don't think most...

I think it depends where the stresses fall in the syllables. If it's Rachel Rydell, for instance, the first syllable is stressed in Rachel and the last syllable is stressed in Rydell, so they don't...

I used to think about having kids all the time when I wasn't in a financial position to do so. Now that I am married and could financially support kids (even though ideally we'd be bringing in a...

I used to watch that show all the time! And then I started liking the name Wren. And then I married someone whose last name is the middle name of the actress who played Ren. Now it feels like if I...
I love Saffron!
Saffron and Augusta
India and Clementine
Agatha and Elspeth
I think Christopher would go well with Elspeth
I would not be averse to using a popular name unless it was trendy only within one generation. So I'm fine with Elizabeth, but I wouldn't use Sophia. I prefer not to use a name that's in the top 25...
Your last name is your own, and if you don't want to change it you shouldn't have to. My husband was fine with us having different last names. If he hadn't been fine with it, he'd have two options:...
I like the name Sigismund, but it is hard even for me to pronounce and I don't think it is very friendly on the tongue. I'm not a fan of Sigmund.
Any other interesting Sig- names out there?

It's so cute! It fits a woman of any age.

I like it. It's a nice take on Phoebe. It's also very different, yet accessible, because both Belle and Phoebe are familiar names.
