I did read you post. You failed to state how Margaret wasn't made-up at one point. Back then when everyone spoke Latin, somebody made up the name Margaret based on some word that existed in Latin....

So back then when everyone spoke Latin, somebody made up the name Margaret based on some word that existed. How is that different than someone making up the name Nevaeh based on the English word...

I personally think the prejudice against made up names is silly. Has anyone ever stopped to examine why they dislike made up names in the first place? If you do, you will realize there's really no...
I just read the post that OP linked to. I think it was a really good and interesting post. Thanks for posting in ebenezer scrouge.
It got me thinking, I think it's really a shame that names that...
Let me clarify my post. I don't actually believe that lower-class people don't know traditional long names or how to spell them. With the internet and access to media people have these days, pretty...
Names that are traditional and long tend to be upper-class. I think the reason that they are is because people who are lower-class tend not to know these names exist or how to spell them, because...

I don't think they are too granny and outdated at all, that's what a good portion of the population are going for these days, so your daughter will fit right in. Go for Philomena if that's what you...
Did anyone do that this year?
Umm, yes, they are too strong. Surprised this even needs to be asked.
To me the distinction is that with a trendy name the person chooses the name to try to be hip or cool or special or pretentious. A trendy name doesn't have to be common. Names like Dakota, Alabama...

I agree with the first response. Suggest that it might work better as a middle name. The suggestion of Nava Dreamer is a great one. I bet she'd love the idea of beautiful dreamer.

I personally don't think it matters at all. If you had two daughters and their first names were Violet and Lilac, I would say the next one should go along with the theme. But for the first daughter...

Marlow is so predictable.

I like Tova. It's pretty, easy to read and pronounce and you've never heard it before. It's not trendy at all like some of the other names.
I wouldn't go with Sappho, it makes me think of the word...

I don't think they are too close at all. Didn't even notice they were close actually.

I think, I don't know the order, but I'd guess:

For girls and boys?
What would you guess?

I like it, but prefer Kiva spelling too.

Pleiades -(Plee-a-dees) it's the name of a constellation
The only reason I said that it would be copying Halle Berry is because Nahla is not an intuitive spelling to me. It's a weird spelling and it's surprising that it would be used by two people...
If I met a little girl named Nahla, I'd think they copied Halle Berry. And I think almost 100 percent that I would be right. If you want to dissociate it from Halle Berry I'd spell it Nalah or Nala.
