    Sadie is a very popular name for dogs, but I don't think it's one of those names that when people hear it they automatically think "dog". It's not like it's Fido or Rover or something. That said, I...

    This is a tough one for me to answer. Belinda is my mom's name, so I have a soft spot for it, I guess. At the same time...I sort of understand where people are coming from when they're commenting...

    I would never give a child free reign over naming their sibling. I think their input is so cute, though! Earlier in my pregnancy, I would ask my 2-year-old "what do you think we should name the new...

    It's a little hissy with so many Ss, but I don't think that should be a deal breaker if it doesn't bother you. Silas is a great name!

    This is tough. Both are perfectly acceptable spellings. I feel like Margot has a little more authenticity. I also think it's a familiar enough name that most adults shouldn't struggle with...

    We didn't really do anything special with our daughter. We didn't find out whether we were having a boy or a girl until birth, so after she was born my husband just sort of announced it. It was 2:00...

    I like Mila best with Luca. Serafina would be my second choice. I like Willa, but it doesn't have the same European flair as Luca, Mila, and Serafina. I dislike Sloane.

    It's dated, but I think it's the sort of name that would be really easy to work in as a middle name if it's sentimental to you.

    I wouldn't recommend it for siblings, but for cousins it doesn't matter. I'm Kathryn and I have a cousin named Kathleen. It's never been an issue.

    Maura is an Irish form of Mary, so it sort of honors my great-grandma Mary and DH's great-grandma Maria. DH is also Catholic, so Mary names are significant in that way, too. DD's middle name,...
