My sister is considering this name for her daughter and I'm torn. I really want to be supportive of the name she likes but i just have a big meh reaction to her choices lately. Especially Ivory.

My sister is still searching for names (and the more desperate she gets, the weirder her choices get...she's considering Teah (pronounced tay-ah) and Ivory right now and I'm cringing at both)

It sounds a but descriptive, since both can be word-names. I like pp's suggestion of Penelope Jordan best, although the name Jordan itself feels very 90s to me
What do you think?
I love Fitzwilliam, Fitzpatrick, etc. but i find myself loving just plain Fitz.
Is it useable or ridiculous?
It isn't bad, and certainly most non-berries probably wouldn't question it (the pairing with Rose, i mean. They'll probably think Clementine is weird) but for me, the combo is too word-y. Since both...
Anyone else have thoughts on this one?

If you decide to go that way, Louis is actually on-trend right now: a British-feeling classic that feels vintage but hasn't shot up yet.
Otherwise, maybe: Theodore, Eli, Emerson, Thatcher, Rowan,...
Boy names are so hard for me to decide on. I love slightly unusual or less popular, masculine names that have a gentle quality about them. So far my favorites include
I probably won't use this, because I have no ties to Norway and it's a Norwegian boy name. But I love the soft sound and the connection to singer/songwriter Sondre Lerche.
But what do you think?...

I'd love to meet a Louisa or an Agatha!
For boys, I'd love to meet an Edmund
For you, I'm thinking, maybe...
Joslyn (you could call her Josie?)
Madeleine (the correct pronunciation, I believe, is Mad-uh-lyn, but I prefer...
Bryn on it's own is nice. Brynlee feels trendy, and in my state is like the #1 name so I hear it all the time and I find it an annoying sound. Next to Kaylee, Brynlee is way too much. I'd go with...

Beatrice (heaven help me, this one has actually grown on me. Proof that the more you see a name the more you start to like it)
India (i know, i know....

Caspian is such a strong, handsome name!
If i were you, I'd stick with Caspian, and not allow them to use a nickname you didn't want. It's your choice and they need to respect that.
Poll: which E-name?
I have this rule that no siblings can share the first letter of their name or ending sounds of the name.
But i like both Ezra and Edmund for a boy. So if it has to be one, which one? (sisters...

I don't dislike Rhody/Rhodri, but they do slightly remind me of the term "Roady" (one who follows a band around, helps them set up, etc). It's not a negative association, just an association.
Persephone, Apple, and Christie are not names that lend themselves easily to sexual harassment. Can you honestly not picture high school for your daughter? Have you met teenaged boys? If you love...
I think this is more situational than anything else. You may cask him Ned and it'll stick and he'll correct anyone who calls him Eddie or Ed. But he may hear Eddie for the first time and feel it fits...
What do you think of this name?

^ honestly in all my life experience, kids who are teased are teased for their personality, or for being socially awkward. Names might come in to that, but few children are ever teased *because* of...
Peach/Peaches always seems like a posh British name to me. I can easily picture it on a little English girl, but i can't picture it on an American girl.
I love it! The only Robin i know is a boy, as well. Robin Ulysses is such a cool name, and i love the connection to Robin Hood and Christopher Robin

The most tragic twin names i ever heard were twin girls named Boisen and Payah.
I also know a boy/girl set of twins named Taylor Ray and Tyler Rae.
The Theodore and Theophilius set makes me...

Echoing others, Rosetta is lovely, the rosetta stone is not a bad reference, but to name a kid "rosetta stone" would be weird. Not bad, just...like naming your kid "liberty bell". It seems almost...
