It's taken a very long time, but here we are:
1. Rose Madelief - Madelief is a Dutch name meaning "daisy," so this combo is a double floral. However, Madelief also has more complicated etymology...
I think somewhere between 2 or 4 is a good range for me as well, but here are all my favorites. It's tough for me to build sib-sets because I don't like too much repetition. At the same time, there...
I've been loving this combo, but I'm afraid people might think of the Black Dahlia murder. I only found out about this connection because of the comments on BtN, but it's a pretty dark story - and...
A short post from me, for once!
What do you think of this combo? Last name is three syllables and starts with W: Rose Magdalena Waterman (for example).
It would not be used as a double barrel...
I really like Rosemary Eira! Thanks, that will go on the list.
It's actually not that she dislikes it; it's why-- she says she's known four "evil" Rosemarys, and I'm a little superstitious about...
We're considering this as an alternative to Rosemary. I still love Rosemary, but my MIL hates it, and we're finding it difficult to pair with a middle.
So we've put the lovely, simple Rose on...

Meanings of Rowena:
From Old English Hröðwyn: this gives us both famous/glorious joy and famous/glorious friend
(depending on whether the second syllable is read as wynn [joy] or wine [friend])...

I haven't seen anyone bring this up yet-- my concern about Clemency is not the similarity to Mercy; it's that your OP implies you already have a son with the middle name Clement. Clement and...

Thanks so much for the feedback. I think I just need to hear that it's not such a big deal, and the more we hear that, the more we can relax. But I want honest opinions too, so if the variation...

My husband and I had pretty much agreed on the name Rowena Claire for our first daughter, but the pronunciation is giving us trouble.
We prefer Ro-wen-eh, but we're aware that most of the world...

What nicknames do you love, and why? Do they just sound adorable to you, or is there a special association?
I have a note at the bottom of my long list with my very favorite nicknames, and I've...

Ottilie, thanks for saying that about Persephone. Despite being a survivor [of various things] myself, I would not have thought about it that way. I appreciate the perspective very much.

I agree with Freya -- as much as I would like to say that any person can thrive with any name, there is actual science to contradict that. It's often a relatively subtle thing, but I still don't...
Thanks so much, everyone! I'm delighted with all the positive feedback.
Can I ask what it means to try a name out in Starbucks? I would guess the idea is to give it as your name, to be written...
I mentioned this in my last post, but I think it needs its own thread. Lilias (also spelled Lileas) is a Scottish form of Lillian. Because it's rare everywhere else, I'm having trouble finding...
Stevie Nicks does make it cool :) Personally, I'd prefer the FN + MN = Stevie idea, especially if it were my name. I don't think everyone could pull Stevie off as the full, given FN. I know I...
I like Maude Fiammetta a lot! Maude Christabel is also lovely.
I think it's one of those names that can really shine in the right pairing. It needs something a little more delicate and flowy alongside it. In the right context, it has a lovely strength and...

They're in my sig!
1) Do you prefer Amaryllis or Amabel [Jane]? Why?
I love the feel and whimsy of Amabel, but am worried it'd be forever confused with Annabel.

We have two solid favorites for the girlies now, which is awesome. :) They are Rowena Claire (nn Winnie) and Amaryllis Jane (possible nn Amary or Amy).
I'm just a little worried that it'd be...

I would opt for Davina Rosemary Pearl (not listed here). I don't normally like Pearl, but it's really nice in that spot. I chose Davina Beatrix Pearl as a runner-up, though I normally don't like...

Mine change all the time, but right now:

I'm back with more!
Lucy and variants - in addition to the "light" meaning, Saint Lucia's day is a special winter holiday (a festival of light, continuation of pre-Christian solstice traditions,...

Clara Hazel is utterly gorgeous, but you should use whatever feels right to you.
I love your list, and I think we probably have a similar overall style. I really like names with weight, history,...

Annora or Honora
Bernadette (maybe a little less flow, a little more clunk-- but still)
