Thanks for the responses so far - they are very helpful!
I think Isobel nn Libby really works! Especially given the connection between Isobel and Elizabeth, but even without that, you have all the right sounds. I hope your husband comes around to it. I...

Just wondering what you all think about the rising popularity of Freya. It entered the SSA top 1000 in 2013 at number 906 (281 babies) and jumped to 584 in 2014 (512 babies). How high do you think...
I'm a fan. Yes, it is unusual and many people will have difficulty spelling or pronouncing it. But it's a good name with great significance and an accessible nickname. If they can handle the puzzled...
Poll: How to pronounce Elof
We recently discovered the Swedish name Elof and DH is a big fan. I'm just struggling to find the correct pronunciation. I've looked online and heard EH-lof (short e), EE-lof, (long e), AY-lof (long...
Poll: How many middles?
So. I love names. DH is down with potentially two middles, but I am sort of thinking of three. I know that's a lot. DH says it just isn't done, so we can't do it either. What do you think? Where do...

@trina14, oops, so sorry!
I love Mimi! Personally I would use a long form as a full name, but I think it works perfectly fine on its own. I just saw a sign for a high school graduation party this...

Doris, Emmeline, Clara, Susannah, Tabitha, Ruth, Laura, Maud?
Does the popularity/stylishness of the initial syllable Em- for girls (Emma, Emily, Emilia, Emerson, Emmeline, etc) impact your...

Thank you all!
@daphodil, Thanks for the encouragement about Emil! I think it is going on our list. :) Also thanks for the pronunciation help. Will have to stew on those.

DH and I are just starting ttc, and I am realizing that if we have a baby we will only be able to use ONE name! So I am re-evaluating my boy name list at the moment. DH has...

I love Pax! Also love Knox and Dex! Dex I fell in love with after watching The Philadelphia Story (Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant). I think Pax is my favorite, then Dex, then Knox. Good luck!

The nature/lumberjack associations push me in the direction of boy, but the similarity to Kimber would make me unsurprised to see it on a girl. 65 / 35.
Unfortunately, like pps have mentioned, the...

Oh, I just love the idea of Anderson nn Van! It is no more of a stretch than many of the suggestions on this thread, and I just love that it is an established family name for you. If Martin nn Mars...

Ooh, I love Nancy! DH has a wonderful grandma named Nancy, and I had a high school student a few years ago with the name. Very sweet on both. I also have positive associations via Nancy Drew, girl...

Not sure which of these might count as Nordic...
Far and away my favorite is Juliette! So pretty, spunky, charming! The others in order of my preference:
Elle - very pretty but a tad too insubstantial for me
Sara - pretty and classic
