1. Oliver -- love this name for so many reasons!
2. Edmund -- this name has really grown on me recently, I like it a lot
3. Henry -- cute and has a lot of history
4. August -- no strong feelings...
I love Vivian/Vivienne! I like the Vivienne spelling a little better. I like Miriam too, but just not as much for some reason. I think it's because Vivienne seems more spunky while Miriam has a very...
Alice Lorraine - I like Alice, although I've only actually known one person named Alice (and she was a toddler) so it feels more like a character name to me, not that that's a bad thing. I've never...

Thank you everyone! All of your advice is so helpful, we were starting to just think ourselves in circles with no input from anyone else. It's nice to hear the perspective of someone else who's been...

My husband and I are trying to decide whether we're ready to have a baby, and we're having a tough time. All of the practical issues (work, child care, finances, etc.) seem do-able, although not...
What about Edmund or Edward? Eamon is the Irish equivalent of both of those, and I agree with the pp that since Julia is a more traditional name it seems like it fits better with a traditional boys'...
The first thing I thought of was actually not Deuteronomy from the Bible, but Old Deuteronomy from the musical CATS. I think those are the only two places I've ever heard it used. In all honesty, my...
As someone with a less-common spelling for a fairly common name, I would caution against using Giulia unless you feel really strongly about it. People are eternally spelling my name wrong, just...
Thank you for the thought-provoking questions! I probably spent way more time on this than I should have. :)
Do you think that a name has a gender?
I think that most names are typically...

I love this idea! I don't like when sibling names are too matchy-matchy; having a letter in common is a great way to have a theme without being over the top. Probably not everyone will notice it, but...

What about Rhodri? I know it's Welsh and not Irish, but it has kind of a similar feel to Rory IMO but without the issue of Northeasterners not being able to pronounce the "row." It's not in the top...
I'm just going to say the same as others here, but I really don't like names with the spellings that seem like they're different just to be different, and I feel like Austynn fits into that category....
I knew a little boy named Azure, I think it's a great name. It seems more like a boy than a girl to me, I think because of the similarity to Asher.
I can't really see Cavanaugh as a first name... it's just so long. Maybe just Cavan? Just out of curiosity, why is it that you can't use Conner?
I only know a couple of Isaacs but while one is an infant the other is in his 20s. I think it's a classic name and not something that's going to look like a trend name 20 years from now, although it...
I also like Delphi the best... although I just remembered that it's supposed to be pronounced Delph-eye and I had been imagining Delph-ee (which I think is cuter as a name). Reminiscent of Darci....

I don't think that there's a "perfect" number of kids, but there are positives and negatives to any number. Personally I think that two would be good -- one for each arm, and one for each parent, so...

Hester/Chester the Molester - Hester the Molester is from "A Prayer for Owen Meany" but when I was in elementary school there was a kid who was a little bit older who was called Chester the Molester....

I don't especially like the name Everett, but only because of a kid that I went to school with. I do think that it's a good match with Anders for a boy, not sure about it for a girl. One thing about...
I've noticed that sometimes when I hear a new name, think that it was just invented by the parents, which I typically don't like, but then I find out that it's actually from a different culture and I...
I would suggest another Welsh name; I just read a great series set in Wales so I'm kind of hooked on Welsh names right now. Einion was one of my favorites from the book. Other more common Welsh names...
Here's a similar chart for the US.
My name was 150-ish when I was born, it's in the 400s now. The more common spelling was in...

In no particular order:
1. Made-up names combining two other names, a la Renesme.
2. Sadie - To me, this will always be a dog's name.
3 and 4. Aiden and Riley and all the names that rhyme with...
