    To me, meaning and history are every bit as important as sound in considering a name. Maybe random people you meet don't know the meaning of your name, but hopefully you do! Personally, I can't...

    In my eleven years of teaching writing workshops in various schools, two of the smartest, sweetest, happiest, and most original girls I've met were named Isis, so that association trumps the...

    I adore Ursula, personally. I'd be a bit concerned about the Disney association, since kids still grow up watching that movie, but if my husband approved it would definitely be on my list. I love its...

    I adore Sparrow. I think the risk of it, though, is that a sparrow could seem like a small and insignificant creature to be named after, depending on your daughter's personality. (I would personally...

    Another vote for Davin! I work in schools and there are Jaydens of various spellings crowding the hallways. Davin is nice, strong and warm.

    I think it's charming. It's also the middle name of a close (female) friend and she loves it and always goes by her full name. She told me once that she thinks it's helped her professionally, because...

    I love Ottoline Pearl, but Wren is sweet too. Darling is a bit much for me. Have you read Peter Pan recently? It's pretty misogynist, full of directly disparaging remarks about women, so not a...

    I always disliked having a popular name (the ubiquitous Sarah) and I find it continues to be a hassle in adulthood--even though Sarah was ranked in the teens the year I was born. So I would...

    I love all these options except Liam and Rory. Channing is a family name for me too so it's exciting to see it used so well. Avery would be my top choice, followed by Xavier.

    I think Aurora is beautiful and not nearly as princessy as many far more popular names. Just because Disney used it, that doesn't stop it from being an elegant classic! Neither does its climb in...

    Alice, Aurora, and Xavier--all ruled out for me. I also grew up with a popular name, and even as an adult people have to refer to me by both first and last name, so I wouldn't let that happen to my...

    As to why they're so popular, I'd guess that a generation of Kristens, Megans, and Lisas rebelled against the plainness of their own names and gave their daughters the frilly, romantic names they...

    I love Cecily! Sweet and elegant. Clemency seems too gender-prescriptive as a virtue name for my taste; I'd love Verity, say, instead. Liliana is pretty but all the double-L names are starting to...

    How about Zaius for a boy? Lola isn't that unusual for a girl, so if you want something distinctive I'd keep looking.

    I really like Ezeriah, honestly, and Ezra is the natural nickname for it anyway. 10 months isn't too old to change it, but it's hard to see how the idea won't cause conflict. When he grows up he...
