I was reading a book called 'The Meaning of Everything', which details the story of the Oxford English dictionary - it's a great read, I highly recommend it if you like that kind of thing - and I was...
Ooooo, this is difficult!
So, your criteria: popular - but not too popular. unusual, but familiar and recognisable. Needs good nicknaming possibilities. Shouldn't rhyme with Larry (or presumably...

Thank you very much for all of the responses.. I don't think I could have hoped for so many! I feel much happier about the idea now, so I think Neeve/Niamh has potentially found a spot on my list......
Since joining Nameberry I have loved the Irish name 'Niamh' (pronounced 'neev'), and one day I thought I might use it as a name for a child. It has a lovely sound, it's simple, and has a lovely...
While I like both names, they're both quite short and simple.. While I don't dislike the pair I think (if it was me) I would prefer to have one of them a little longer/classical. Of course I don't...
I love both! For Lincoln, maybe you could switch it with the middle name, see if that makes it flow nicer? Then just call him Lincoln anyway :P
Arlo is a really sweet name, but it is quite short....

While I was surprised at the two at first, I now think they work quite well! However they are quite different, style-wise... Aiden's irish roots lend itself to siblings like Connor, Finn, Rowan......
I completely understand how Monty may feel a little thin, but I love expansions on it, such as Montague/Montgomery. You could even go for something a little more out there such as Montreal, or even...
Also love Elin and Mara! other you might like:
I'm really into Astrid at the moment, thought I'd mention it as it's scandinavian :D
I have to say, I think it's an awesome name. While I do think it might sound a little dated 20 years from now, it might not...
Perhaps it's a good idea to have it as a middle name. You can call...

A few names like Cole but less popular:
I particularly like Ford :)
Thanks! Thats a really good point... I should probably stop thinking so much as a name nerd :P
I've lately been getting more adventurous with sibsets I've been trying out, especially boys, and I put together Gulliver, Calvin and Floyd, which I thought was brilliant.
However, the meanings of...

With a name like Donny Fox as your first, my instinct for the second boy's first name is a similar 'old man' style nickname. I love the idea of having a special word middle name, so definitely keep...
Oh man, I have heard so many pronns for Naomi... It's a lovely name otherwise, but I don't think I could give it to a kid simply because of that :/
Recently had some family friends over and was instantly enamoured with the younger boy's name: Matisse, after the artist. (His family called him Tees for short, which was also cute).
I think its a great name but maybe Brook or Brooke would help it flow better? The names are very similar but stop the 'smeyers' or 'smelliot'..

As someone from the UK, your names sound very typical and normal! It's a shame that Imogen doesn't work, I know quite a few and Immy is an great nickname.
Names which sound similar:

I have to say, I absolutely love Sanna, and I think it also goes really well with Kale because they're both quite understated and simple. To make it more interesting maybe use the dutch spelling...

I love Hayes, I think it sounds casual and intelligent while still being out of the box.

Lydia Primrose sounds very graceful, and almost regal, yet it's also strong and sharp. I also think it flows better, as the 'th s' consonant border in Lilith Seraphine stutters a little.

Nora is an adorable name, and is at the same popularity level as Elise which gives them a certain cohesiveness I don't think you could achieve with Sarah or Leah and Elise.
When I was younger I knew siblings called Wulf and India.. those names still sound wonderful together.
Other sibsets I love: Violet, Klaus and Sunny (Series of Unfortunate Events)

Ooo, I have a massive soft spot for Tegan on a boy, though that's about 80-20 at the moment. Other names I like are Sascha and Nikita (both russian boys nicknames), Harper, Quinn, Ashley...
Although Anniston isn't really my style, I can see that that could sound really nice, yeah. H/e, immediate association with Jennifer Anniston might be a problem, unless you're massive fans.
