    Apologies to your mom but I think you're right! I can't get an "elle" sound out of "yl" - it sounds like ill or uhll, like, well, Cheryl. Hope your first name is easier for people to get on the first...

    It's one of my all-time favs and if I had a baby girl tomorrow, that would be weird, but Susannah/Susanna would be one of my top name pics. I love that there are a ton of nicknames and I like every...

    Except for one audiobook (public domain book and done by volunteers, not an official version) - I've always heard it pronounced SEH-si-lee, accent on the first syllable. "Silly" isn't very apparent...

    I don't think it would be weird. Marisol can work cross-culturally. And even names that feel distinctly Hispanic now, like Juanita, were common among Anglophones in earlier times. To me this is no...

    It feels cheesy to me, simply meaning I wouldn't do it myself. But I wouldn't necessarily think someone else had poor taste or was cheesy if they did it.

    I think it's only okay if, like you, you...

    I'm sorry, it's a one-character name for me and feels odd next to Stella. Not that your names have to match, but I could see Topanga being mad she got the "weird" name or Stella feel bad she got the...

    If you did have a second daughter, would you feel bad for "wasting" both of your favorites on Annabelle? If you don't like it as well as Anna and Isabella, I'd use one of those instead. Better to use...

    I don't hate it in the middle, but for the reasons the other posters said it may not be the best idea. I also think it's not the worst thing in the world, though - the PP getting mocked for the...

    I'm a Molly. I was, as a kid, a lot like I am as an adult. Short, skinny, with fair skin and tons of freckles and curly red hair. I'm outgoing and driven, but as a kid gravitated more towards...

    Awesome names you've used already, some of my favorites! Wish your husband would like Flannery. It fits in but also has a different feel than your other girl names so it wouldn't seem matchy.

    Anne nicknamed Annie is among my favorites, and it's just perfect with your older girl's name! I always love Anne with a middle name that has a bit more "zip," like Marcella. Marcella is also the...

    Jolanta or Jolantha or Jolanda? They're real names that mean "Violet."
    Or Jacaranda, a beautiful flowering tree.

    A few years ago I read a book about Lewis Carroll, who wrote Alice in Wonderland. The "real" Alice's sister was Lorina, nicknamed Ina, so it feels Victorian to me. Pretty, easy to say, doesn't feel...

    I think they're a bit too matchy to call up the stairs to one of them without confusion. But the other names you listed all fit very well with Avery. Another similar name is Annesley, slightly less...

    It's kind of catchy, and if Audrey is your favorite I'd use it. Like the PP, I think Ashley Avery is a bit better because it doesn't have the double "ree." Or Annesley (not Ainsley, the A sounds in...

    Overall, I think it's pretty as a first and middle. I love Willa! But I don't like it as well hyphenated. The double A is fine. I've known girls named Anna Maria and Ana Lucia. It's got the right...

    My first thought: "get thee to a sunnery!" It sounds like a place you'd go to get sun. Like a tanning salon.

    But I do love Sunny! If I ever get to use Susanna, I think Sunny would be the...

    Boy. To me, Elliot and Elliott are fine spellings, but Elyot or anything like that seems unnecessary and makes it seem misspelled, not feminine.

    I do agree that Eliette is a similar-sounding,...

    I can see Posy on a baby, child or teen. I can even imagine a young woman named Posy - the 'lead in a romantic comedy' type, a teacher, a young doctor fresh out of medical school. And I can see it on...

    I like the Scarlet and Scotia suggestions. Or Scout, but that feels even more nicknamey than Scottie.

    I actually like the Frances Scott "Scottie" Fitzgerald approach best: traditional first name...

    Eva Celeste and Anna Sofia are both strong, classic, and wise sounding. They both can fit someone very earthy or more "floaty," and both names travel well. I adore Celeste and am always happy to see...
