I think naming her Valerie-Ann and calling her Annie makes the hyphenated first name a bit over the top. You could always call her something that sounds similar to Valerie: maybe Valencia, Valentia,...

Valentine (For a boy. I keep it on my list for a middle just because I love it too much to relegate it entirely to GP.)
Alfric (Love love love.)...
Winifred (nn winnie)
Favorite nn for Elizabeth: Bess
I don't think it matters at all, as long as you love the names. It could actually help the kids develop their own unique identities, giving them something all their own that doesn't have to "match"...

Jane: I absolutely adore this name otherwise, but I know a Jane (a former friend of mine, actually) whose sneaky, selfish nature has ruined the name for me.
Cyrus: Miley. I can't even bring myself...
I was thinking Lennox or Alexander, too. Maybe Felix?
They're not too similar at all, and Evelyn is lovely.
Sisters Kalyna and Kayla (their twin older brothers are Kieran and Quinn).
Sienna, Caleigh, Emma and Liam. They just seem so random.
To balance these out, I know an excellently named family of...

Also Jane, because of a bad personal association.
My poodle/king charles cavalier mix is named Roxy.
I really, really want to love Ramona, but there are two things I can't get past: the "moan" in the second syllable, and that it reminds me, inevitably, of Ramona Quimby.
Can you talk me into...
Luka Valentine is just so romantic. I love Valentine but could never bring myself to use it in first place on a boy, and I love it with Luka. It's *almost* too feminine, I think, but the right boy...
I think Sage as a first would be verging on too feminine, though I'm sure a boy could pull it off. Rafferty Sage is sweet, and I much prefer Sage in the middle place there.
Cal and Boone seem like such a laid-back, carefree country set of brothers... I love the one-syllable pattern but with differing lengths, too. What do you think?
My first thought was actually Milo, but besides that I'd recommend Jasper and...
What would you call a brother or sister to an Elise? That being my name, I'm curious to hear how the Berries would have completed my family had I been lucky enough to be a sister.

Clementine and Zola are definitely not what I would have suggested, but now I'm really liking the idea. It's a quirky, unconventional set of sisters, but I think it works! Also Zola, while shorter,...

Definitely Elias! I adore Beau, but Gabriel and Elias, as well as Gabe and Eli, are wonderful together. I love the 3-syllable repetition. Plus Beau Guenette instantly makes me think of baguette...
I adore Cal. I don't, however, love any of the longer forms for it quite as much, nor do I love the idea of Cal on its own. Charles and Calvin are the two that I am going between, but if you have any...

Toufik, in true European style, generously invited us to his house in Morocco for a visit. Maybe his name is Moroccan?
What do you think of the combo Charles Ivan? Ivan Charles?
Charlie is a very good friend of mine and Ivan is an acquaintance I admire greatly, so this seemed a natural combination. What are your...

I'm back from a three-week trip to Italy, France and Switzerland with some new and exciting name discoveries! These five were the most exciting:
Ivan (Norwegian mountaineer)
Congratulations! Arthur, Lucas, and Hugo are gorgeous.
Poll: Jane or June?
Which do you prefer, and why? I'm leaning toward Jane, but I have a really bad personal association there :(
WDYT of Franz? I was editing my list when it popped into my head. I'm starting to really like it, especially the Swiss Family Robinson literary connection.
