    I love Dorothea and associate it with the great surrealist painter Dorothea Tanning--so someone strong, imaginative, and daring. Her sisters would be Helena and Marguerite. (It's off limits for me...

    I love Cecily! Sweet and elegant. Clemency seems too gender-prescriptive as a virtue name for my taste; I'd love Verity, say, instead. Liliana is pretty but all the double-L names are starting to...

    I do know a little Matilda, maybe 7 or so, and I have the impressions that's it's fairly popular among educated urbanites--as are Henry, Oliver, Sebastian, Clementine, and other names that are big on...

    How about Zaius for a boy? Lola isn't that unusual for a girl, so if you want something distinctive I'd keep looking.

    I really like Ezeriah, honestly, and Ezra is the natural nickname for it anyway. 10 months isn't too old to change it, but it's hard to see how the idea won't cause conflict. When he grows up he...

    My name was only #18 when I was born, and there were still way too many of us, and I find it continues to be a nuisance in adulthood--so I'd suggest looking at the hundreds of equally lovely names...

    I like all of them except Juno--the goddess is so spiteful and nasty that it ruins the name for me. Arwen, Luna, and Astrid are all quirky-charming-lovely.

    I believe Marmara--like the Strait--means sparkling and shining. Celestine or Vesper/Vespera/Vespertine would also work.

    Definitely Luella. I don't understand the appeal of Piper at all; why suggest that a child continually emits high, squeaking sounds, like a tree frog?

    Daria is lovely. The upset stomach associate never would have occurred to me and I think it's a huge stretch to get there! I'd say, look no further!
