I have a three-book series with heroes that have "devil" names, and I would like to give the ladies more virtuous names. Off the cuff, I can think of the following:
I have a sexy virgin librarian who needs a name. Suggestions? Something old? Something really old by literary standards? Something exotic is okay, but I guess I would prefer something more close to...
I've always wanted to know this:
A common nickname for Beatrice is "Bea". But how is that pronounced?
My current son's initials are HMPH: Henry Michael Peter Hermes. If we have another boy, I want him to be AARH: Alexander Augustin Robert Hermes. But I would like another "back pocket" idea.
Just read a book with the heroine named Felicity. Her brothers called her Lissy.
IMHO, I'm not a huge fan of unisex names. Just from a professional standpoint, it's hard to address the correct sex... Unless you were to adjust the spelling a bit?? Maybe Robinne? But then it starts...
I had to read Amila twice... I kept reading it as Amelia. :/ I would keep that in mind, as teachers, etc., could very easily say Amelia first. Just my opinion.
But I like the Amila spelling best,...

My vote is Brynn, but I prefer Brynne. :)

DH and I sat through the credits of a movie last night to find some names. We found Marguerite, and we thought "Margot" would make a cute nn. (We already have a Margaret/Maggie in the family.)

This was my first thought exactly when I saw the two names up for vote.
My daughter's Evelyn, nn Evie (EE-VEE). I think you're going to get a lot of people saying, "Oh, is that short for Evangeline?" Just be prepared for that.

Willa's a cute nn to Wilhelmina. Willa and Poppy. :)
Poll: Eleanor or Eleanora?
DH likes Eleanor; I think adding the "a" freshens the name, gives it a little punch and makes it stand out more. Thoughts?
Odd question: Cameron and Taylor are both unisex names. Would you want to continue that trend with your daughter? Like with Rowan/Rowen, Riley or Quinn?

I picked Miriam, but I was close to selecting Elizabeth. I feel Elizabeth would fit in with the rest of your kids' names better.
If we have a boy, we're probably going to name him Henry. It's a good name as is, but when it comes to a nickname, I like Han (yes, like Han Solo...) Husband doesn't like that so much and prefers...
I've been pronouncing Emmaline as Emma-LEAN. I never considered the pronounciation Emma-LYNN. But that definitely sounds too close to Evelyn!
Btw, Evelyn's nn is Evie, pronounced Ee-vee, if that...
My friend has a two-year old named Clara Grace. I think that works very well together. For a second mn, how 'bout
Clara Grace Adele
Clara Grace Autumn
Clara Grace Etienne

Pregnant with #2. Too soon to know the gender. We have a daughter at home now, Evelyn Vi. We have the boy's name picked out, but we're stuck on two girls' names. We like the nn's Emma and Ellie, but...

I think "Elsie Kathleen" is an awful lot of EE-sounds put together. I also think Elsa is stronger.
These are some wonderful names! I don't think Husband will go for any of them, but I appreciate the uniqueness. Keep 'em coming!
I think Lissie is better than Lizzy, but I think Lizzy works fine. If that's what you call her, then people will follow suit. Heck, if Johns can be nicknamed Jack and the world's been fine with that...
Our sixth-month-old daughter is named Evelyn Vi. Now, we're pregnant again. We don't know the gender yet, but we have our boys' names all worked out.
The girls' names we have set aside are also...
I agree completely with Bailey, and do you know what dog names I've heard over and over in the past six months? Sydney and Sadie.
