    I picked 'androgynous but leans towards being masculine'. I like it for a boy, and think it SHOULD be a boys name, but I think it's also been co-opted for the girls. I know two young Rowan's - a boy...

    It just makes me think "panties" too, unfortunately! I agree with others that the 'Pant' just stands out. It's pretty in concept and sound though! Could Anthea work as an alternative?

    Lavinia! I think it's gorgeous, and it has so much history. It's easy to spell and pronounce. Aurelia's lovely too but I think there would be more pronunciation and spelling issues!

    I love it! Go for it!

    I know a 6 year old Jethro and he's never had any problems with his name. Kids just seem to accept eachothers names - he definitely hasn't been bullied for it! And it's a...

    I prefer Evangeline! Both are lovely, but Evelyn is getting very popular in my area, so I find Evangeline a bit more unexpected.

    I'm not American but love Julienne and am only vaguely aware of the cooking term. Have you ever seen the tv show 'Call the Midwife'? I love it, and am reminded of the lovely sister Julienne who is so...

    I'm in the minority but have always had a thing for Elinor! I think the spelling sort of freshens up the more old fashioned and popular Eleanor. I've always loved Aunt Elinor in the 'Inkheart' series...

    This is interesting - longer names with a nn seem to be winning!

    I guess I don't like the idea of a nn feeling 'contrived' - ie, 'This is Clementine, we call her Minnie', or 'This is Susannah, we...

    Thanks for your opinions! I pretty much agree with everyone and am confused, haha!

    I hasn't really thought about shorter names being more popular - and then not having nn options if there are...
  17. Do you prefer short names or longer names with nn's?

    We'll be ttc this year and I'm struggling with this question! I love the flow and sound of longer names, but then I'm not sure about nn's! I'm starting to think that a shorter name could be easier to...

    I agree with everyone that the first syllable is problematic and could lead to teasing. I also see it as masculine. There was a sort of famous Australian international relations professor called...

    My favourite is Esther, closely followed by Edith! I think Bonnie and Sally are perfectly useable, just not to my taste. Phyllis and Lois seem very dated and difficult to pull off - plus their sounds...

    I don't know if I'm able to come up with anything new! I second Lorelai, Elowen, Elodie, Eloisa and Magnolia for Lola - gorgeous! And with a sister named Esme, Mirabelle, Mabel, Marigold or Mariel!
