    Thanks for your input! I wouldn't say I'd actually name the child after Sojourner Truth, it's just a positive association for a name I like the sound of.

    As a middle, absolutely. As a first, unfortunately not. Winter's Tale is probably my favorite Shakespeare play, and that Hermione is in my opinion one of the best female characters in all of...

    I love Hayes, I'm so glad to see someone considering it! Both choices are great and fit well with sisters' names. I like Bennett too so you really can't go wrong!

    It's a great fit. All the names you have are more popular in the UK, and Callum definitely fits with that. Callum is a little more modern than Oliver, Henry, and Charlie, but Harrison is too so it...

    Sojourner

    Sojourner is a bit out there, even for me, but I'd like to hear everyone's opinions. Do you think it would be appropriative to use it on a white girl? Sojourner Truth was a great role model for...

    My first guess is add-a-line, but I wouldn't be surprised to hear -leen or -lyn, and I believe they're all correct. Personally I like -lyn best.

    If you like it that much, it might be worth abandoning the no repeat initials rule. Meredith and Miriam are similar, but not confusingly close, so it's not a huge deal to have them as sisters. It's...

    Thanks for your feedback! I'm not sure that the t is pronounced- I think it might be said like "merlot." So my best guess at pronunciation is ahv-uh-low, but I really don't know!

    I like Annabel because of Annabel Lee. Annabelle is second for me, and Anabel third. I really dislike the other variants.

    Avelot?

    Avelot was mentioned in the "Medievalizing a Name" post- does anyone know anything about this name? I haven't found any information on my own.

    I don't think you need to have -n ending names. Since you're expecting twins, it would be a way to break the pattern since it wouldn't be all the kids in the family except one sharing the same final...

    I like both; Anna is timeless, and Annabel has more flexibility with nickname options. If you're torn, I'd say Annabel- you can always shorten Annabel to Anna.

    I don't think the star thing is bad. It's actually quite nice- wherever you are, you can look up and see a reminder of your Orion in the cosmos. It's also got a very accessible sound- Ryan has been...
