    LOVE the previous poster's suggestion of Broderick! Totally gets rid of the matchy name problem. They'd be Broderick and Bellamy or Brody and Ellie/Emme. The whole BJ problem is still there, which...

    I don't think Seamus is "too Irish" for an American boy at all. Sean is a nice name, but I find Seamus to have more character and strongly prefer it to Sean. Love it!

    I think Rebecca sounds nice when paired with Louisa, but I do have trouble coming up with a nice nickname option. I've never been a big fan of Becky or Becca. You could go with Reba, maybe Ricky, or...

    I'd agree with the poster before me. I think two is a little overdone/showy, although most of the combos berries come up with are just stunning regardless. I prefer just one.

    I don't like Noble much as a first name, but I think it would be fine in the middle.

    My thoughts on your list:
    Theodore-too close to your son's name
    Lincoln-not as dignified as someone your...

    The only name on your list I even kind of like for a little girl is Logan. I wouldn't mind Bailey (I think it's pretty cute), but Baylee just seems strange. Harley and Austin are way, way too boy for...

    I think Carlo is a very handsome name. I prefer it to Carlos, as I think Carlo has a slightly more sophisticated and unique sound. I think Carlo does have connotations of a heritage from one of the...

    Penny and Josie have a similar feel for me. I would agree that Sylvie is close also.

    I don't find it usable at all. It sounds like a joke name--like the name someone would use to prank call. What about Gayle? That still might lead to some teasing, but it's less direct at least.

    My little niece (age 3) is named Lauren and I think it works wonderfully! It was not so so popular to be tied solely to a single time period and there are so many nickname options (love Wren) that it...

    I'm not big on Jones--it feels a little too insubstantial for a name. I think Hugo is absolutely dashing though!

    My grandfather (whom I was very close to) was named Ivo and its long been a name I planned to use as a middle, but now I've started considering it for a first. I'm just wondering, since the name has...

    I have to agree with other posters--I think Dixie works better as a nickname. I think it could work as a nickname for almost any "D" name or even ones with prominent "X" sounds in them.

    Although it's a gorgeous name, I think Sofia is just too popular at this point for a first name. I, like a previous poster, had an insanely popular name growing up. It wasn't traumatizing or...

    I think most people out there are familiar with the name Margot and the fact the T is silent. I think you can go with almost all of the Margaret nicknames--Maggie, Mari, Mare, Maisie.

    I agree with PP, definitely a stand alone name, but also works as a nn for Cordelia.
