    I think it's really pretty. I do think she'll end up correcting people who call her Isabella, but it's an easy name to pronounce once people know the name. And people reading it will get it right...

    Opinions on (middle name) Siena?

    Our first baby is due in a few weeks, and we're pretty much set on naming her Margot. (I know some people have strong feelings about alternate Margot spellings but we prefer this version.) I keep...

    I just had to laugh at your list, since it's almost identical to mine. (Margot, Cecelia, Colette, and Marlowe were all names I suggested at some point...clearly I like your taste. (And unfortunately...

    I'm sorry you're so stuck and still searching. I know my opinion is just one of many that you've heard over the last few weeks, but I just wanted to say that I think Ruby is absolutely, definitely...

    It does sound pretty, but I'm not a fan of adjective + noun names -- it sounds like a phrase to my ears, not a name. Especially, as lexlem mentions, when both names evoke such similar imagery. And...

    Great ideas, thanks! I think I need to plan a brainstorming session -- unfortunately DH is overdosed on name discussions and has requested a break. :) Any other ideas?

    Finding inspired middle names

    So, my husband and I have just about settled on a name for our first daughter (yay!) and now we're trying to come up with a middle name. We have a good list going of names that sound lovely, but none...

    I love Cecelia Claire! (Go figure, since Clara Cecille is on my own list!) And not to be nitpicky, but Cecelia Claire isn't actually alliterative, since the Cs have completely different sounds....

    I used to work with a woman named Graciela and have always loved the name. She's probably in her 40s now but was late 20s or early 30s at the time and was really cool, so to me it seems both hip and...

    I like all three very much. It sounds like you love Aurora most, and I agree that she could likely get by without a nickname. However, FWIW, I think Eloise Valentine sounds lovely. True, Valentine...

    Well, they're bold choices! Personally I would never have guessed that Yvon Aubrey was a boy. I know it's a boy's name, but especially with the similarity to Yvonne, I'm surprised she picked such a...

    I like it. It's not typically my style, actually, but I just finished reading The Paris Wife (a novel told from the point of view of Ernest Hemingway's first wife, Hadley Richardson), and I thought...

    I see where you're coming from, but I agree that I don't like it as a name. I think it suffers from the fact that Maude is kind of an old-lady name, and Mauve to me is an old-lady color (I picture a...

    Nica?

    I was half-watching the Olympics earlier and I thought I heard the announcer mention a female athlete named Nica. I kind of like it...NB lists it as a nn for Veronica. I'd think Nika with a K could...

    It's not my style, but I disagree that a kid would likely get teased for it. I think a lot of kids would think it was really cool, especially with the unusual X in there. I personally don't think it...

    How do you picture Margot?

    I'm having our first baby in October and Margot is one of the few names both DH and I really like. But I've heard conflicting opinions about the name. I like it because it's classic, not really...

    Connelly isn't exactly my style, but I like the flow of it with Grace and your LN. To me Connelly Dace sounds really masculine. I'd prefer a more obvious girl name in the middle since the first is...

    I like Rosalie best. My concern with the spelling for Eliette is that I'd pronounce it differently than I pronounce Eliott (More like Elle-ee-ETTE instead of EL-ee-uht). The previous suggestion of...

    I think Cordelia is a great choice. I actually prefer the sound of it with Alice anyway, but the newfound meaning for you makes it even better. Congrats! (And sympathies for Dylan's loss.)

    To me (and most other people in their 30s, I'm sure) those names tend to sound a bit stale just because we've heard them a lot and probably know a lot of now-adults with those names...but the truth...
