    Sølve definitely sounds like a younger version of Sölvi. I actually know a little boy called Sölvi and I always thought it was a sweet name, interesting to hear it's a girls' name in Norway!

    I see what you mean completely, and I'm sure some people really are clueless! I am just imagining that I am visiting a friend that just had a baby.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. For one thing, siblings' names don't have to 'match', there's no law there. If you want them to match stylistically, that's up to you, but if you don't, no big...

    I don't see a problem with it in the slightest. Leslie is a nice name for a boy, I like it much better than Warner. I don't consider it to be a 'girl's name', although I do consider it to be a unisex...

    I also think the negative associations from WWI are really too much. I know a lot of people do not seem to...
