If names stress you out, I'd either wait until the child is born to choose one or to really work on your list.
- you already crossed Ophelia off the list because of pronunciation problems and since...
Not necessarily in exact order & considering them as first names, my middle name ranking would look different:
3. Flora / Clara
5. Ada / Jane
My "LOVE" list isn't that long but if I had to, this would be it (not necessarily in a particular order):
1. Edmund / Henry
5. Frederick / Theodore nn Theo
7. Elliott nn...
It would be intersting to know (at least a few of) your other children's names to get a sense of what style you prefer.
I really love Anne and Mary with Henry & Jane; Josephine is lovely, too.
Helen gives the set a more 1940s vibe (though Helen has been popular before, it still strikes me as both a grandmother's and...
Sam, Finn and Max are lovely names, so youthful and fun yet serious enough for adults.
From your one syllable list, there isn't one that strikes me as perfect, they either seem too serious, too...
I personally prefer Aiden, I like the softer look of it and as it is so popular and I wasn't familiar with the name before, it also doesn't look like a misspelling to me.
I prefer simple Eleanor & Eleanor Sophie is just gorgeous!

The thing that helped me through "name lows" was watching new movies or shows that I thought might incorporate names of a style that I rather liked; the association with a liked character often makes...

I think Hope sticks out as being a word name that feels very American and even sounds a bit dated nowadays; the others all fit lovely together.
I prefer Iris to Ivy and love both Cecilia and...

I quite like Vinnie as a nickname!

Unless it is to honour a James, I wouldn't choose it for a girl. I don't think Jayms is any better as Jay is a very masculine nickname to me so Jayms will automatically feel masculine (I also think...
I'll leave this question for another person to answer as well, I don't necessarily think they're too close in sound though if you plan to publish the story, I might add a note on how to pronounce the...

Maybe I am ;)
With certain other combos, I'd agree but Augusta Edith seems easy for me to say.
I think that with the combos you mentioned, the syllable-flow is off, and the third one...
I love Eleanor, Ella and Nora are gorgeous nicknames and personally I also love Nell.
I do prefer her paired with something a bit less common/expected (no Eleanor Rose, etc.), which I generally...
Lena. I love Sophie and Sofia but am not a fan of Sofie and Sophia.

I don't think "blindness" is something negative; it does appear to be but blindness enhances the other sences, blind people won't judge others based on their race, colour, looks but rather judge them...
I don't think two names with the same initial matter at all and while I personally do not like Hope as a name, I don't think that you should let other people keep you from using it as it's a...

Fox isn't my style, it's a bit too boho/hipster-ish for me, however, I do think it can work on a child and an adult.
While I did not agree about the rest of the comment below, at least not when...
My favourite is Annabelle Romy, though I do find Annabelle a bit too close to both your daughters' names, or rather, it seems like you named her after Isabella and Pollyanna rather than give your...

I don't think Mabel Edith Augusta flows very well syllable-wise but thank you for your input, it's appreciated.

Something that doesn't sound like a first name to me at all, along the lines of, and the focus lies on the suffix here: Lockwood, Lancaster, Greenberg, Goldsmith, Winchister, Whitfield, Burroughs or...
I don't think they are with either pronunciation but especially not with Eye-ra and May-a.
Do you prefer Mabel Georgiana Edith or Mabel Augusta Edith?
July 21st, 2016, 02:14 PM
Thank you & yes we do seem to share a love for classic names as I also love the names of your children!
I'm glad you don't think they sound harsh, interestingly enough, Augusta has always been a...

The names, the flow but mainly what you think of when you hear the name, what imagery comes to mind?
