I love Gladys. It reminds me of gladiolas. I'd be thrilled to meet a baby Gladys.

I think I like Rhoda best of the two you've mentioned, tho I also do like Rhona. I like the pp's image of rhododendrons.
Do you like Rhodora at all? (it's a flower)
Rhetta? Rheta? (both mean...
:) I love Flora Ferelith Pearl. It has enough repeating sounds to be cohesive and lilting, the meanings are well balanced, and I love that there are layers of personal meaning for you. One of the...

This is so well written, Ash. Your advice to the OP is great.

It's not all about the intention. Effects matter. Note my metaphor re car crashes above.
Names Faith, Moses, and Angel are nothing like first name Cohen. The names you mention are not profaned by...

Riiiiight. Everyone misunderstands you. You never misspeak. I'm glad you now agree that it's pretty awful to mock other people's traditions.
I'm single right now and sortv hate love stories but these are adorable. :) What a good idea for a thread!

Honey, you weren't giving advice. You were making fun. Note your lol. I guess it's good that you are implicitly acknowledging the egregiousness of what you said by denying that you said it instead...

I want to second (third?) everyone who has commended the op for how she is handling this. It's a tough situation, and one any of us could be in, if not about names than about something else. ...

This is antisemitic and not funny. The part where you say "..ask a rabbi for a list of allowed alternatives..." You are making fun of the idea of consulting a Rabbi, you are making fun of the idea...

I wish I were not serious.
Instead, I am both serious and crazily sad.
That site was a really important tool in my quest to figure out what parenting might look like for me. One of my main stops...

is anyone else crazily sad that offbeat families stopped publishing today?
So many great suggestions already. I love Plum as a middle.
Delphinia Plum (mebbe too much from the garden...)

Just quickly seconding (fourthing?) goats are awesome- I want some.
I think they might be elves? And pigs are dwarves? :-)
Also, I waaaant a Maremma to spoon the managarie by day and fight...

I always wish I went camping more, I'm a very naturey girl. But, I have fibromyalgia and it huuurts me the next day if I am cold all night or sleeping on anything less awesome than my bed....

So many yesses.

Violet Isla Hall is too many second sylables starting with l for me.
I love Stella Marina Hall.

oh, I forgot to say:
I don't have any tattoos. :-)

People discuss the many ways their Abrahamist religions influence their baby naming all over the other threads. If announcing our non Abrahamist religious identities is prohibited, I don't see how...

I have been super fascinated by falconing since I was a little kid. Not sure if I will ever do it, but I'm feeling very keyed into to the birdness of the world lately by having chickens. I spend a...

:-) this is awesome.
I don't read as alternative walking down the street, but I definitely identify as queer because I am a sex worker.
Also, I live in an intentional community. Only 5 ppl,...
Stella is such a cute name. I picked Marina bc two vowel sounds in a row was hard for me to say.
I *much* prefer Betony. It's fresh and naturey, Bethany is too 80's for me. Also, Betony nicks down to Betty much more intuitively than Bethany does.
Betony ftw 100%!
(and Betty is adorbs)
I voted for Iker. It has a nice spikey feeling that goes well with Leo's brevity.
What does your dh not like about Evangeline? Too long?
Some serious but shorter ev names to go with Lydia:
Evanthe (I esp like this for you)
I also think just plain Evie does work as a...
