I think there's always going to be someone with the same name combo, sorry! Especially such a lovely combo, it's bound to have been thought of before.
If you wanted it to be more unusual, maybe...
Thanks for your help!
I tried putting my maiden name into Google and it links very clearly to me, it's an unusual name, so I don't think that's an option after all. I think I'm going to go with...
Hi all, I know this comes up a lot on this forum but I can't think of a better place where name-nerds and writers converge!
I'm looking for a pen name, primarily because I'd like to keep my...

Cassandra or Camilla?
Either would get you to that pronounciation I reckon, but purely on aesthetics I'd go for Marja.
Can you think of names with a similar style to Astrid (i.e. short, not too girlie, uncommon) that...
Thought I'd do 6 girls too, just for fun...
Generally I think you should go for a longer first name with one-syllable surnames (ours is one syllable too) but I think Charles 'Danes' works okay, and you can always use Charley day-to-day even if...
Today mine would be:
I love Noemi and I've never heard it as 'no Emmy' before. I think if it's said fast without a gap in between then no-one will notice. If you both love it, then go for it!
My aunt is called Rosalind June but was born in March. My grandad just really liked the name June and they decided to go with it anyway.
I have another relative called June who was actually born on...
Stunning combo! Hope she brings you lots of happiness.
I actually like the fact that Reese and Langley are both so unisex, I think it would be more annoying if one name was very unisex and the other was obviously gendered, like Reese and Charlotte or...

I also think Zoe works well, it's right on the line between Arabella and Olivia IMO.

I don't get the reference either! I think the names are fine together, and I'm sure there are plenty of people like me who won't realise there is anything 'wrong' with the sibset.
Friends of ours considered Horatio for their little boy (now called Owen) because of the Norfolk connection as Horatio Nelson was born here; I'm not sure why they changed their minds but I do think...
@Amber - Emil is a great name and I agree that the Heskey connection has made it more useable, but for that reason I'd use the Emile spelling. Arguably, it looks more feminine (probably because it...
The surname-name thing used to be a big deal for the aristocracy (Fitzwilliam Darcy, for instance) so maybe that's why they hasn't taken off amongst the 'great unwashed' just yet? There's still a...

I think Eddie is fine - I have a great-uncle Edwin who has been Eddie his whole life, even now he's in his 80s.
If you are worried about it, why not write in a short bit of dialogue where someone...
The ones that annoy me are sibsets where some kids get great names then it seems like either the parents ran out of steam or they had a massive personality change. For instance, a sibset with Samuel,...

Melina is a lovely name.
Melina Harriet (Harriet Tubman)
Melina Audrey (Audrey Hepburn, an aid worker after she retired from acting)
Melina Marie (Marie Curie) - I like the...

As PP said, kids will always find something to tease other kids about so 'Smella' might be the least of her worries. I had a childhood friend called Ella and I don't remember her being called Smella...
I'm not keen on occupation-names anyway (Sawyer, Carter etc) so Miller isn't for me, but I don't see why you couldn't use it on a girl. I think word-names are a lot easier to make unisex since...
@rainpoppy Thanks for that website - if you want to bypass the confusing ONS website, you can go straight to http://names.darkgreener.com/# I find it really useful, you can type in any name...
I know one Stanley, two Arthurs and a Rupert, all under 2 years old, if that helps. For girls, a friend of mine has just had a little Jemima and I also know of a Cora and an Elsie in my wider...
