    I wouldn't do it personally. It's hard to know who your son will be and it doesn't only take bullying for a child to feel negatively about their name. Kids or adults don't need to be cruel to say...

    Briar is a lovely name but it is a daring one. How would you feel to have the name? Consider it it for different circumstances, calling it across the playground, on their graduation day, as a phone...

    Birdie is a really fun nickname and I agree that it works best as a nickname or a middle. It doesn't grow up at all really, and there are some who take that kind of thing in stride and some who don't...

    These are all good choices, although I think Marlowe fits in the best stylistically with the siblings. Lucienne would be a good second choice. I wouldn't recommend Vivienne if you want to avoid...

    Willow and Ivy are lovely together! I think Aurora could work really well also, the rest of the names are much more uncommon or unique than Willow and so I don't think they work very well.

    I think it's a great name, not dated at all. It's still in pretty good use and not dropping in usage, maybe show him the popularity chart? Although it isn't in my personal tastes.

    Antonia is a great name! It's going to be hard to find a name that is so strong and beautiful but not overly popular. Of your list I think Claudia or Cordelia are the best pick. Cora is crazy popular...

    If strength is what you are looking for I agree that the name Sylvia carries more strength than Sylvie because the -ee ending tends to make things sound more youthful. Vera is also a nice strong name...

    It is a good thing to think about, especially as the child grows up and gets out in the work world. I think this is increasingly the case today. This is the downside of increasing diversity in...

    Well I would guess to pronounce it like car but here Clara is usually pronounced Clair-a so it is partly an accent thing. At any rate, I don't think it would be too much trouble to insist on the...

    Paul, Mark, James and Andrew are such timeless classic names that it isn't even overly noticeable that they share the biblical theme. Any classic name you pick would fit right in with the siblings.
