I love Russet, boy or girl. I think Russette or even Russelle would be lovely and feminine (and very literal) ways of honoring a Russell. Both are legit variants, not just kr8tive spellings

Daya 'dye-ah' is a Hebrew name and is also used in south Asia. There is an actress named Daya Vaidya so that's the pronunciation I'm accustomed to.
If I were going for 'day-ah' I'd spell it Deya....
It's one of my top unisex names. I like it for either gender but it leans masculine because it's the same pronunciation as Lyndon. So, if I had to guess I would assume Linden was a boy
No, not permission but you should give a heads up. When you say nothing then you leave room for speculation (e.g. you're honoring your MIL via using her dad's name). Tell her a few names that you...
Actually, Leonore & Leonora can be pronounced the same way, 'lee-o-nor-ah'. The -e is not silent if using the German pronunciation. Leonor is 'lee-o-nor'. If you use the spelling Leonore you get the...
I love Jade (see my sig)! It's currently tied with Shea for my #1 boy name. I've never liked it for a girl but on a boy it's so striking and strong.
I actually love Jada for a boy too but I know...

I don't think you need to fret. Just because your newer list contains short names, it doesn't mean they don't fit. Cleo, Luna, Isla, and Olive are the same style as Juliet & Penelope- old...

A lot of these are flower names
No, not especially. There's really no such thing as "Southern names". We mainly use the same names as everyone else. And Atlanta isn't even all the "southernish" anymore. There are too many...

They're all nice except Ted Sullivan. It seems very plain compared to the others.
- I love Bayard as a fn
- Rupert Everest is very close to the actor Rupert Everett
- My favorite is Hadrian...

I agree with oliviasarah. Trendy bothers me more than popular or common. Actually, common really doesn't bother me. Common names have been around for so long that you know people of different ages,...
I had a classmate named Wendell; major geek but I nice boy. He mostly went by his full name but occasional he was called Wen. The only issue was that sometimes people would pronounce it as 'wen-DELL'...
I think Oleander is a lovely name, boy or girl (boys can have flower names too). Not a fan of Ollie. Plus I pronounce it oh-leander so Ollie isn't the same sound. On a boy, I like the nn Leo or...
In the US, the rush to get a certificate and an SSN is really due to health insurance. An unnamed child cannot be covered. In Florida, you essentially have 1yr to decide. In hospitals, all babies are...
I can't vote. My faves are River & Avery. Both sound great with Jerome. I see you have Sebastian listed a few times. Personally, I don't care for it however Sebastian Jerome is quite handsome. River...
I think Stefan is your best bet. Stephan/en can go either way. There's a popular NBA player named Stephen Curry, 'stef-an', but every Stephen/Stephan I've known IRL was 'steven'.
I think River, while still unusual and naturey, has become established enough to lose the hippy vibe.
River Jerome is very handsome. I used to love River for both genders but I recently ran into...

Louis (same pronunciation as Louie) would be perfect but if you're set on the spelling Louie, then scrap it
I would choose Griffin (only if Louis isn't an option)
Eulalie is Southern? Eula Lee 'yoo-la lee' would be a classic Southern choice but not 'yoo-LAY-lee'. I prefer 'oh-lah-LEE' or 'yoo-lah-LEE' because 'yoo-LAY-lee' sounds like ukulele or shillelagh

Phoenix is OK with your surname but not great. The '-nix fitz-' flow is kind of weird. Also, May seems so bland in between them. Is there a significance or are you just going for a 1 syllable name?
To me, Emery is timeless while Emerson is trendy. Both are masculine but Emery seems manly. I would expect an adult Emery but I would expect Emerson to be a child because it's such a "now" name. I...
Not a fan. You could consider Cilicia. It's similar in sound and is a place name with a very long and interesting history
I'd say Galilea is the most usable. It's gorgeous (if you're pronouncing it 'gal-lil-lay-uh')! Some would say it's a mouthful but so are Penelope and Alexandria but people love them. It makes me...
No, you nor your god-mother are wrong. You're just using the French pronunciation.
American: Chey ='shy' (ex. Cheyenne people 'shy-ann')
French: Chey ='shay' (ex. Cheyne is 'Shane' not 'Shine')
