Islay is very nice! Depending on where you live, people may not pronounce it like the the Scottish island. In North America you will probably have that problem, but probably not if you're in the UK....
I feel like in the media and in school anymore they only refer to STDs or STIs, not VD. So it's something some adults have heard of (but also something that wouldn't have occurred to me if I was...
If you follow celebrity baby names, you've probably been wondering what Zooey Deschanel named her little one. And Elsie Otter is certainly very Zooey Deschanel!
Personal thoughts: I don't mind it....
If they like the sounds of Alice - the A, L, and S sounds:
Alisa - the a at the end breaks up the s and the sh
Eliza - same thing
Alison - as suggested above :)
Hannah will always be pretty. But I think when a name is popular and has been for a long time, it kind of gets harder for people to appreciate because it becomes more like "white noise" as you're...
I have been crushing on this name lately! I love the sound and meaning and how it looks, but I do wonder if people would get it right. I think it's a "one and done" deal though: if you tell people...
It's not my personal style, but I do like the idea of carrying on a family name and getting creative with it. Like some others, I prefer Hallie, but that would also be a good nickname for Hallyn.

I have a cousin named Jill and while I found her name boring when I was younger, I really do think it's sweet. I think Jillian nicknamed Jill really is a solid, versatile choice. Jinny was a great...
Not boring! I like Anna the most. Hannah has had more of a fall then rise in popularity, so it is easier to date, whereas Anna has stayed pretty solid. But BOTH are classics that any baby would be...
Not trashy, no. I would expect maybe a parent who's a little hippie-ish or New Age. Something unexpected in the middle almost never feels "trashy," I think it's sort of a restrained way to use names...
Gretchen - feels harsh
Aurora - suddenly makes me question my ability to pronounce the letter R.
Shelby - All of these were popular when I was a kid in the...
Tally is a darling nickname. I love the idea of using a cute nickname for whichever one you pick.
Tallulah Charlotte ("Tally") and...
Violet Estelle (Violet is short enough...
One of my school friends was named Shirley. As best I know, nobody ever teased her for it even though it was a bit different from all of the Sarahs and Ashleys. So many years have passed since she...
The flow is great otherwise but the repeated AV is tough for me too. Maybe you could replace one of the names with something similar that doesn't have the "av": Tatiana Aveline, or Taviana Ameline,...
I LOVE Posy and love that you will be using it! I would not use Auburn myself because I do think it's the kind of name best used if you have a real reason to, like the school or a surname (also: I'm...
I'm sorry, it reminds me first of cigarettes, especially because people tend to call clove cigarettes "cloves." I think of garlic too. Clover might be nice though. I understand thinking "why not...
Those names are on-trend but feel a bit vintage, too. And none of them are very long and complicated. They do have that extra something that makes them feel non-boring. I think part of the reason...
Primarily classic. But a bit of both: a classic name that fits with the current trends. Not a name that has kept the same relative popularity level for years (Elizabeth, Katherine), but still one...
I love both, but am partial to Kate. I prefer Erin to Eryn although I am sure you are choosing that spelling for a reason. It's actually a close call for me because Erin/Eryn is way less popular than...
That was me, I LOVE Lane and Laine (but for some reason I'm not into Layne) and it definitely sounds like a sister pair! That's a great point about the last name. My last name is 9 letters and 3-4 of...
Tough to carry off - a lot tougher than many musical names - but I would like it in the middle, for sure. I wouldn't call it tacky, just sort of clunky.
I've seen Ivelis, Ivelisse, Yvelis, etc a bit in Latin America - it seems to be spelled quite a few different ways and is pronounced like the name you're thinking of. (Think Spanish: The I is more of...
I think Heather is very nice. You just have to decide if it will bother you that a lot of people will immediately think 70s/80s/a girl I went to high school with, instead of those lush fields. I...
Definitely Adley. I think if you like Hadley and Adley (along with, I think, names like Ainsley, Ansley, Lane, etc), some of the appeal is that it's an unfussy streamlined surname/place name. The...
