It's so strange that people are criticizing your friend's daughter's name after the baby is born, and are unfamiliar with the name Naomi. I am pretty much pop culture illiterate, and even I know...
I love Ingrid and like Bryony as well. Some other suggestions:
Pearl (some of the same sounds as Penelope)
What about Pierrette or Pierretta? I like isaberry's suggestion of Petra as well. As a person of French origin, I really can't see this on a girl, and I think it will be hard getting people to...
A few ultrasounds later and they've decided I'm about to ovulate! The follicle went from 1.7mm (I think it's mm??) on Friday to 2.3 today, and bloodwork showed ovulation as imminent. I to go back...
I just commented, and realized the original post was from 2011. Oops...

I don't think there's an ideal number. Even if finances are not an issue, there is the question of age, family history, parents' jobs/lifestyle, location, and personal preference. Personally, I...

Hmmm, I live in Canada as well and I didn't know that term. As others have said, slang changes over time and I doubt those connotations will lead to teasing later on. Pearl is a lovely classic, and...
I don't think Charlotte is off-limits at all. It's pretty difficult to find names not used by anyone you know if you include acquaintances and colleagues. Personally, I wouldn't use a name if my...
Thanks! No medications so far. I just started with the RE in February. It's been a positive experience so far (other than all the early morning testing, but that can't be helped). I was really...

I am the opposite in that I like Geneviève, but dislike the English pronunciation.
I think for all the reasons you listed, it's not the best fit. I used to live in a bilingual English-French...

I recently looked for Aino and didn't find it here. Aino is a Finnish girls' name that occurs in the Finnish epic the 'Kalevala'.
@Blade - She definitely mentioned that there are cysts, but did not say how many or how large they are. I'm supposed to have a follow-up to discuss all the test results and she will probably tell me...
Well, no call today, so it's back to the clinic tomorrow morning. :(
I've heard of it, but hadn't given it too much thought. I'm in the middle of my first cycle of cycle monitoring, so the...
My first thought was that it's a creative spelling of Aoife, but it doesn't necessarily make the spelling intuitive. It could be EE-fah, or AY-fah, and it will still need to be spelled out. I'm not...
I went for another ultrasound this morning and things are looking okay. They saw an egg, so after the blood results are analyzed, they will either call me to say the egg will be released (hence we...
I like this name! It's different, but has the familiar Zach/Zack as a nickname so it's not too out-there. I also say Zah-KEE-us.
I did think of the "Zaccheus was a wee little man" song, but if...

Not sure that will help as an illustration... I've met quite a few Americans who were not entirely sure about Canada or were unclear why we use our own currency and not theirs. :P On my dad's US...

If you want, you can run a Super-search on girls names ending in -o and see some other options, though that will also yield you some truly heinous offerings like Reignbo and Boo.

Most of the suggestions I thought of have already been made (Juno, Hero, Shilo, Vero).
Has anyone mentioned Loreto? I know a girl by that name. There's also Dido, although there's some teasing...

This article has a lot of statistics on this subject: http://www.babymed.com/getting-pregnant/what-are-the-odds-conceiving-conception
Apparently, you have a 15-25% chance of conceiving in each...

Ovulating on CD 17 isn't out of the ordinary. The whole 14-day ovulation, 28-day cycle is just an average. The most important thing is that your luteal phase (between ovulation and AF) is long...
Congratulations! It's great to see that you got a BFP after those hardships.
I didn't read any judgment in Sarah's request, just a moderator politely directing you to a thread that you may want...
I think this is very good advice. I'm less likely to be phased if Billy, Charlie, or Parker is a girl than I am if I meet a girl named Vincent or Peter.
I like the suggestion of a nickname like...
