    Love them both for toddlers, but they need some substance as they age. Do you want your daughters to be merely decorative or intelligent, creative individuals? I like Winnie as a stand alone with a...

    Argh--I voted wrong. I meant to say that there is no problem that I can see, but I picked the wrong answer. I think the names sound just fine together and not at all too matchy.

    Wow--there are some strong opinions on this one. Prudence would join sisters Miriam, Emeline, and Harriet. I think the name works especially well with Harriet. I am not familiar with Charmed. The...

    I would pick Molly because it sounds so open and friendly and feminine. Abigail has solid history behind it (Abigail Adams is a favorite of mine--"Remember the women!") but I don't like the nickname...

    Is Prudence "stuffy"?

    I just hit on Prudence as a possibility for baby girl due in December. I love the "Prue" sound and the history behind the name. My hubby said, "I guess I could live with Prudence but it sounds a...

    I have a friend with a little Marigold, called Goldie. It fits her beautifully and doesn't sound "out there" at all. I'm a big fan.

    I think Mavis is beautiful. I would pair it with something sunshiney because that is what the "May" first sound makes me think of. So . . .

    Mavis Sunshine (I'm not a hippie normally, but love...

    I would use Pippa. SO CUTE!!! I just met a family with three little blondies named Paisley, Piper, and Prim. The "p" letter certainly packs a lot of spunk. Also, I just in general prefer naming...

    Ack! I had sort of taken Annabel off my mental list and started leaning toward Beatrice or Olive but then my husband said Annabel was his favorite (followed by Lois, with the rest a tie for third). ...

    I quite like Maple (especially as I'm Canadian), but my husband is more conservative and thinks it sounds "made-up." Yes, I'm still taking suggestions!!

    I agree with the two previous posters. I wouldn't use it because of the similarity to the sibling name, but if you love a name sometimes that is what ends up being most important.

    Love them both. I actually prefer Juliet to plain Julia, but either way the Jules sound is so feminine and sweet and classic. You can't go wrong with either choice, though.

    I like it with Josephine because the balance seems perfect--a more romantic and unusual first name grounded by a solid, no-nonsense middle. Though, Josephine is very much my style so maybe I'm...

    I actually quite like Maple because it reminds me of home (I'm Canadian, married to an American, living in the USA), but it doesn't feel quite solid enough. Hermione does say smart, but it also says...

    I prefer Ashley for a boy. Of course it works for a girl and has a reputable history for a girl, but it sounds dated on a girl. On a boy it sounds fresh and very masculine to me.

    I have a cousin named Dixie. She'd be about 38 or 39. I never gave it a thought growing up--it was just her name. As an adult name nerd it does feel a bit strange to me that there is a random...

    Gwen Scarlett. She just sounds like more of a go-getter. Spunky, fun, a little unexpected. Prefer the Hannah spelling.
