    I'm probably just biased because I follow the Swedish Royal Family and their crown princess has a gorgeous little girl named Estelle, but I think it's actually a fresh and cool name. Sure, it has a...
  2. Advice: Pregnancy/Babies During Doctoral Work?

    My husband and I are still young (24) and working on our Masters degrees (church history for me, theology for him). I'd assumed that we'd wait until after we were done with school, dissertations,...

    I think a lot of people have a preference for short (sometimes almost "filler") middle names - Rose, Lee, Anne, May, Beth, etc.
    I think it can go either way. I tend to prefer one name be longer...

    Olive was my first thought (as in the Mount of Olives, where Jesus was arrested before his crucifixion/ascended to heaven/lots of other significant biblical events occurred).

    I think a number of factors go into this. A name seems trendy if it pops up out of nowhere and becomes suddenly popular (Kaylee). Classics like Sarah and Elizabeth are usually perceived as...

    Although Zephyr's definitely on my guilty pleasure list and I'm usually all about encouraging others to use it, in this case I actually prefer the sound/look of Jude Wilder.

    While I think that the conversation of whether or not you want kids is important to have, I don't think you necessarily have to agree on a number of children. I find that many couples' opinions...

    I think that some people will make the connection, but I'm not sure if it's enough to keep you from using a name you love. There are all sorts of unfortunate name connotations for just about any...

    Eh, I'm not a fan. To me, it looks like a spelling mistake and sounds like someone had a speech impediment (like how small children often say "w" for "r"?) or mispronounced Guinevere or something.

    For me, Scarlett's flaws are what make me love her--she's gritty and real. That doesn't mean I'd want to be exactly like her or that I think her flaws are good, but they do make her incredibly human...

    I think your original name picks are fine. They're a little matchy, but I don't think it's over the top or enough to keep you from using those names if they're what you love best.

    I'd have two concerns:

    1) Many people would mispronounce it
    2) Those who knew how to pronounce it would probably associate it strongly with Sophocles' tragedy

    If neither of those matter to...

    I think that since Noelle has its emphasis on the second syllable rather than the first syllable like your middle name choices/last name it helps to break up the typical 2-2-2 meter that people don't...

    For full disclosure, my own name is Laura.

    I think both are feminine, sweet classics.
    Clara is definitely more on trend, riding the coattails of uber popular Claire. Expect it to continue to...

    This would be incredibly difficult. I like the idea of siblings having distinct sounding names, but many of my favorite girls' names begin or end with the same sound. Here goes!

    I like Prosper and Edmund very much. Prosper and Noble seemed a bit matchy, but mixing a virtue named sibling with a non-virtue named sib helps tone down as stuffiness or self-importance. If I read...
