Oh wow, you've got some great names on that list!
There's so much going on, I'm just going to throw out some suggestions that occurred to me while reading, even though they may not fit exactly...
I love the pp's suggestion of Lachlan.
It might also help to know what your current 2 names are?
Just curious, I've been having a little name crush lately on what I've come to think of as sprint names. Which one appeals to you most, and why?

I also really like the name Sienna--and would never have thought of it as blunt! So interesting different people's takes on names.
Like many other pp's, my SO isn't as into names as I am, so I...

From your revised list my favourites are:
Other suggestions (sorry for repeats):
Thanks for all your replies!
I spent several years living in the UK and had a good friend whose name was Lorna, pronounced "Law-na". She was from the Lake District, but anytime we were out...
Poll: How do you pronounce...
I know it varies considerably depending on whether you're British or American, but just wanted the overall opinion on how you'd pronounce this, as I vastly prefer the British "Law-na" and don't care...

I absolutely think it works as a full name, and I'm a big fan of it for many of the reasons you mentioned. It easy to spell, easy to understand, pretty but understated.
I love love love Briggs, but think that Simon fits in best in the group. I can never quite get past seeing Felix as a pet's name, and it sounds like you have that association as well, so I'd steer...
I'd be surprised if it ever became truly classic. When I think of more modern classics, Emily would probably be at the top of the list
Abree - I don't care for the spelling here
Lyra - Like
Novelle - Dislike
Allegra - Love
Ginevra - Like
Lara-Rose - Its not bad for a double name, although they are generally clunkier than...
Thanks for all the feedback! I really want to like Ursula, but can never quite get there. And one of my biggest GPs is Ulalume from Poe.
I agree, with pp's, I don't know much about WoW, so I wouldn't make that connection. Although I'm sure a large demographic would, but as long as it isn't negative then its fine.
But to answer...
A friend of mine has a black lab named Rigel, and I always thought it was a great name for a boy. Although it does sound like a name he'd have to grown into, I have trouble picturing a baby Rigel,...
I only see it as a girls name, and don't care for it on a boy. Although I adore it on a girl.

I agree, having lived for a while in New England, this seems perfectly normal to me. I do know of at least one other born-and-raised New England man who has his mother's maiden name in the middle.

Just to clarify, is Love your last name?
If so, I think a word name might be a bit too much. Love is probably even harder than a normal word name to pair with another word it really implies a...
Poll: Let's hear it for U!
Just curious...it always seemed to me the farther down in vowels you go, the less popular they are to start a name. So just wondering, what are your favourite U names? And any that aren't on this...
Which middle name do you like best for Poppy? To me, Poppy is so bouncy and spirited I tend to veer towards pairing it with something sensible or even unisex, but then I also like it with names like...
I love the name Zara, but can't quite come up with a middle name I love as much to pair with it; last name is Italian, 3 syllables, ends in "lo". Here's my list so far, but I'd love to hear feedback...
Poll: Tessa or Tess?
Just curious what you prefer as a full first name-- is Tess enough or is Tessa better with the nn Tess?

From your list, I think Talia would be the best choice, with Lyla as a runner up.
And for boys, Jasper or Theo.

I think popularity of a name is a lot more concentrated which can make it harder to know if you're choosing a name that's too common, since its not always easy to know if you're in a city littered...
