    I'm too much a fan of the full name so I have to say "use it." Then you still have the option of using Bastien as a nickname.

    I like it. As a child in Italy, I played with a little girl named Mina. I like that it's not Mia or Nina but is reminiscent of both.

    Some of mine I would use, others I never would, mostly because they don't go with my (difficult) last name. Here's a mix names I've been loving lately.

    To me, it's slightly dated. I would put it in a category with Natalie. I believe both names are classic and will survive for a long time to come, but you don't hear that many babies being given...

    Too-close sibsets

    It bothers me when parents choose names that are too close, in either sound or origin, for multiple children. This week I met sisters named Olivia and Lily. I didn't particularly care for that...

    I love Therese. I think it's beautiful, meaningful and classic. I don't know about nicknames, I would probably just use Therese without shortening it. Tessa is cute but more suited to Theresa.

    It is a short form of Bridget. I knew one person with this name. It was hyphenated, Bridie-Kate. She always went by both. I think it's totally usable.

    I love your children's names. My name is Catherine and my sister is Clare!! I love Caroline and although the names are close, I think it works. They are all classic beauties and the C/K theme is nice.

    Gillian is my mother's name! I think it's a great choice. We are from the UK and I'd say both spellings are common there. The G spelling is more distinctive in the US so why not go for it? Everyone...
