    "You will understand why" is a bit condescending. I understand perfectly, just disagree wholeheartedly. If it makes people upset to hear girls having boy's names, then they certainly don't have to...

    Yikes, not sure why people are so adamant that a boy's name must be a boy's name, especially when all the sounds are assigned pretty arbitrarily. Why is Declan masculine, but Caitlin feminine? Makes...

    You get more mileage out of William, because he can be either William or Liam. I don't think it's that difficult to make a nickname catch. If that's what you call him, that's what other folks will...

    Throwing my pennies in for Mimi or Rosie. Adorable and sweet, the both of them.

    Dylan is cute if you end up going with it, but sounds super trendy to me and not necessarily unique, as hubby seems...

    renrose,

    The sounds are similar, near identical, in our dialect, maybe not yours.

    Thank you everyone for your input and suggestions!

    I suppose when I say popular, I mean, "in use". I'm seriously popular-name phobic because of my own name, and it ends up getting projected on to...

    Alternatives to Mary?

    I adore the name Mary, both the sound of it and the figure it historically represents. But it's so bleeding popular! It's not necessarily trendy like Isabella or Sophie or the like, but it's a...

    I think it's darling and it's on my list. I pronounce it the Anglicised way, ee-SOLD.

    How are those other versions pronounced, particularly Eseld? Is it ee-SELD?

    Prefer Amaya, something about that 'n' throws me off. But it's a perfectly sound name. Very sweet, feminine, and beautiful.

    Leandra, perhaps? And you could pronounce it either LEE andra or LAY andra.

    I think Lesley --> Leah doesn't really make sense, and I'd always wonder why they weren't just called Leah, especially...

    Not a huge fan. For some reason, Rylant sounds more made up to me than Rylant, despite being a real (sur)name. Why not Ryland or Riley? Hmm, maybe Ryder/Rider?

    Hawthorne is a name to me first, a plant second. So I wouldn't make that association at all. It's a very, very common surname. So I don't see the problem! It's not so obviously planty in the way that...

    Some lovely names here!

    I've got to say, the maritime / space geek in me *adores* Fleet. Even though it's not traditionally used as a name, it sounds like a name. Other names in that vein worth...

    Pronounced Sair-en, or sa-REN?

    Either way, sounds lovely, but does blend in a bit with the other sort of trendyish "en" names, Gavin, Teagan, etc etc. But pretty, no doubt about it.
