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.

The names in my signature are a pre-list but are definitely serious contenders. I will likely get more picky about things closer to having a child, that's my experience any way that some names just...
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...
Oh, also I wanted to add that sometimes we get carried away by asking opinions on the internet. It is very valuable to get the opinions of people in different places and from different backgrounds...
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...
I love, love, love Adela. I pronounce it like Adele with an A at the end. If I were to have a baby tomorrow it would be on my hospital short list. I think you could pronounce it the way you like and...
I've always loved the name Isaac and for it's meaning, "he will laugh". Ethan "solid, enduring". Aidan "little fiery one" Gavin is a form of Gawain, one of the knights of the Round Table. William...
Great name! I think you'll be very happy with it. Good luck!
Yeah, it's a bad idea.
Some similar sounding names:
Jemima (although I don't recommend using this in the US), Luminosa, Arrosa, Morissa, Melosa, Memphis, Marisol.

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...
I was under the understanding that it is pronounced with the o, just like Oberon. That's what it says on Behind the Name anyway.
I've always been of the opinion that there doesn't seem to be much point to using a family name unless it means something to you. They are called honor names for a reason, because it's less about the...

Declan with the nickname Dax fits really well with Jameson nickname Jem. Second choice would be Callen nickname Kit. I think these both go really well together and fit into that versatile but...
I think Silas (my personal favorite) or Caius fit in well with the siblings. The other names are very different styles, which doesn't have to be a deal breaker but they do stand out. What is it you...

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.

Ivy is the first thing that came to mind. Other good choices: Lucy, June, Ada, Maggie, Della, Georgia, Josie, Sadie, Tessa, Vera, Willa, Zelda, Nora, Stella, Freya, Margo, Rita, Sylvie.
