I also think Una/Oona is perfectly capable of being a standalone name, but I totally get the appeal of having a longer, nickname-able name!

Sarai (suh-RYE) has several sounds in common with Skylar. Have you considered Sarai Amity?
A few other ideas, based on Skylar:
And based on Amity:

I don't think there's anything wrong with giving your daughter a name that's obviously feminine. You're giving her a name based on her sex - which was determined at conception. Her gender is...
I think Frances is fantastic! That said, even a great name is cringeworthy when paired with Bambi. It's so fluffy and babyish compared to strong and meaningful names like Frances and Jane. I get that...

I absolutely adore Willa. It's short, sweet, not overly common, and could easily suit anyone from an infant to an elderly woman. Willow is nice, though I prefer Willa by a mile. The 'weeping willow'...

Babymagic, I'm not sure I agree that giving a girl a boy's name challenges social norms. I think it reinforces the idea that in order to be taken seriously, you have to adopt typically-masculine...
Oh man, I'd totally use Arthur John Peregrine.
Today I'm feeling Daphne Violet Estelle, and Beckett Alexander Raphael.

Sorry, but I really dislike Forest on a boy, and slapping an extremely masculine name on a girl doesn't make it any better! With the only association that most people have being Forrest Gump, I can't...

Is the picture on your profile of your husband and the new baby? Because man, they're both adorable! ;)
I normally prefer 3-name combos, but in most of the options you presented, I actually prefer the 2-name options. I feel like the 1-syllable names on the end seem more tacked-on than anything else....

My thoughts exactly! When I was younger I wanted 10+ kids. I still love the idea of decorating ten bedrooms, buying ten sets of toys, putting together the wardrobes for ten kids, and coming up with...

Rebecca, for sure! It's timeless, and has a handful of nicknames for variety. While I could see Shirley making a comeback at some point (and certainly don't hate it), it's very clearly tied to a...

Yep, the 'Dud' sound is too prominent - and combining that with the Harry Potter character, I just can't see it positively. If anything, I'd put it in the middle name spot.
Right, and Ottilie was one of them, right? I mean, if she has the same IP as a member who's known for having multiple accounts, her own story seems suspect, they had each others' respective names on...
Sessha, just as a heads up: The one thing I would be careful with in terms of getting in touch with her outside of Nameberry is that if you're willing to believe she's a teenaged girl rather than...
I don't actually think it's a negative reflection on you at all. I really think the only person this reflects poorly on is 'Ottilie' herself. The fact that you believed her tells me that you're very...

Jude Alexander Raphael or Annabel Felicity Charlotte for me!
How do you explain that her email was traced back to the Facebook of a teenaged girl, then?
The things she knew were very, VERY easy to Google - and the tone she used in her post wasn't that of an...

Your GP list is full of nice, usable options! I'd totally love to see an Ingrid, Gloria, Maeve, August or Ezekiel running around!
Allegra (Allergies run in my family, and I've been on the...
Regarding literature and music, assuming she has a lot of free time on her hands (which, given how often she posted here, seems highly likely) it would be very easy for her to have a good bit of...
This is a great point, actually. Letting someone off the hook because they've been around for so long and people have bonded with their personas basically says, "Well, you can't fake - UNLESS you can...
I want to clear something up because I don't want to misrepresent myself, and then I'm out of this thread. I'm really sorry for the derail. It's tough when the admins delete any thread/question about...
Yeah, the multiple accounts are a real issue for me - not to mention, she's posted pictures before. One of those involved her being partially naked with her 'daughter' (she removed the picture, but...
Once you start lying for attention, I believe, you become a troll. Fabricating children, events, and entire lives is lying, full stop. Why bother with white lies at all, if you want to be a...
I know I'm primarily a lurker, but I couldn't disagree more. I have an emotional/psychological disorder, and I would NEVER expect people to put up with me if I lied for attention. It is absolutely...
