    I didn't notice it myself but since you pointed it out, it really sticks out to me. I agree, try it on friends and see if anyone picks up on it without you mentioning it.

    Jane, by far! I think it's the most versatile name on your list. And Rosemary, Elizabeth "Betsy", Anthony "Tony", and Jane (maybe nn Janie, maybe not) sound lovely together.

    I've never heard Skyra before. I assume it's pronounced SKYE-ra, rhyming with Myra? If so, I wouldn't put it with Violet because of the repeating long "i" sounds. Skyra seems very sharp to me - no...

    I love Iris but agree that it sounds too much like Ozias.

    I do think Jessamine Arietta is a bit much as a combo, but Arietta with something shorter would be lovely. I can't decide whether the frilliness is as big a problem as the syllable count - that's...

    Beyoncé's sister does come to mind, but I've had a crush on the name Solange for years now anyway. (Also, Solange Knowles is a legitimately good artist, too, if that helps.) I just checked its...

    Yes - I was on Santorini this summer and Thera and Thira are its Greek names. I could see it being a cool girl name. The pronunciation seems pretty straightforward, yet it would be uncommon. I think...

    Sorry - another vote that an Oliva would spend her entire life correcting people who thought her name was Olivia.

    You're not crazy for thinking of it that way - I've heard that same thought a lot around name boards. But Sophie is a totally legitimate name on its own. In my opinion Sophia sounds sharper and...

    If you like Nico, you could always use the name Nicholas and then Nico as a nickname if you're interested.

    I think Mason sounds an awful lot like Kaden in that they share the long "a", two...

    Freya and Henry sound very British together IMO (not a good or bad thing, just the feeling I get from them). Beatrice is lovely and while Brian isn't my favourite, it works as an honour name.
