    I always sing my daughters "The Girl I Mean to Be" from the musical Secret Garden. Gorgeous song, but no nickname opportunities from it, I don't think. I also sing them a Vienna Teng lullaby called...

    Ianthe

    I've just fallen in love with the name Ianthe. Curious what others out there think. Sadly, we have all the kids we're going to have, so I'll never get a chance to use it. Definitely would have...

    I think if you introduce her at Katy-Jane, then that's what she'll be called. I like double-barreled first names, and this one is very sweet!

    I love the meaning behind the LK initials. And I adore the name Beth. I had initially assumed it was pronounced like Elizabeth, but Liza-Beth is super sweet!

    To me, it would just seem like when someone uses a last name as a middle name. My brother's middle name is Shaw, after my mom's maiden name. Since Douglas is a common surname, I wouldn't bat an eye.

    I'm always embarrassed about this, but my husband and his twin sister are Christopher & Christina. Their mom didn't know she was having twins until he came out, so she said that if it was a girl, it...

    I think it's awesome! I think I would go for dahlia. That's how you spell the flower, right? Somehow seems more legitimate to me. And I think there are some possible pronunciation issues. I would...

    I love it! It's been on my list since I met an adult Cecily about 4 yrs ago. My only hesitation is that I sometimes think of cesspool. An unfortunate shared syllable.
