p.s. for those interested, Phoebe was our choice because my husband loves bird-watching, it's unusual but classic (a necessary compromise for us!), and pays homage to my grandmother Phyllis who died...
...Phoebe Ruth! Born August 17th at 1:04am. Technically, she and her big sister Lorelei Jane both have second middle names - but they are both my maiden name so I won't post here for privacy reasons....

It would be helpful to have the other names you've used as guidelines! Off the top of my head...

Julianna Fiona Heart

I agree with you about the difficulty with the "A" middle name; however, the two that you picked work pretty well, because the second syllable is emphasized rather than the first so it sounds nice...

I totally love all of these names! Marin is one my husband and I considered, but we decided it was setting our future daughter up for too much angst over correcting pronunciation mistakes. I don't...

I love Alice Helena with your other two names - I think it fits much better than Saoirse (I love that name, too, but it seems like a big departure in your style).
I totally understand the...
Thanks, all - this was basically my sense of things. I was just taken aback by those top ten lists, because it seems to me that on a site of name nerds there should be more individuality, I guess....

Great names, all!
A few ideas...

Nathan and Nathaniel seem like a place to find some common ground! Maybe Nathaniel with a nn Nathan?
Here are some other ideas - sorry for any repeats.

I know some people wait to be inspired by meeting their baby first - maybe that will work for you too!
Any hints you can give us to help us generate some ideas for you?

Two things immediately jump to my mind: Dracula, Cruella De Vil. I don't know why - the associations don't make a lot of sense - but I think that's why I don't like it.
How much do name preferences on Nameberry forums reflect those of the general population? Does this site tend to attract people who often like the same kinds of names?
I was reading through all of...
Bronwyn (or Bronwen, for proper Welsh gendered spelling)
I'm a teacher and I've had a lot of these names as students in the past, so I tend to picture based on the person I know.
Hmmm...your taste is really different than mine so I don't know if I'm going to be much help, but I'll try! (Also, I'd recommend trying nymbler.com!)

I think Caroline is sometimes shortened to Callie.

I personally don't love them - though I wouldn't mind a fn-mn repeat nearly as much as I mind a fn-ln repeated sound. But I think sometimes there can be a lyricism to repetition. Kyle Kristopher...

I agree - hate the name, love the person. I'm the same as a pp about my husband's name; it's reeeeeally popular for our generation, and I knew a bunch of boys/guys named it growing up and absolutely...
I posted a response on your other thread, but I checked in here to see what others are saying - I totally agree with their assessment of how Greta and August sound together (and whether or not they...
I really, really love Greta Jane! I don't know that most people associate the name August with being overtly German so the connection might be more in your head than elsewhere. Greta does have that...
Mika, Nyssa, and Oriana (new beginnings) - I really like this one, but something about it made me think "The Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria." Too sing-songy, maybe?

Would be interesting to know what your first's name is for comparison/matching purposes!
Some of the second mn choices seem like they might flow better in the first mn place just for syllabic...
Not sure what I can add if you're hard to please...but here are a few. I'm assuming you don't really meant "Old English," as in Anglo-Saxon, because some of the consonant/vowel combinations of those...

Wow! What a cool find! And love the "Keeping Up Appearances" reference. :) Barton for a woman's name? That one stood out to me as interesting even amidst all the other strange picks. The odd...
