    I'm not loving it - it makes me think of Dorothy and dorsal fins and doreys (fishing boats) and "dorky". I think if none of those words existed it would be a perfectly fine name, but I agree with a...

    People can feel so differently about having popular names - it might be a "the grass is always greener" situation, but I've almost never met anyone my age with my name and I always wanted to change...

    I'd definitely pronounce Ada as AID-uh (I think because of Ava being pronounced AIV-uh and Ida being pronounced EYE-da) and my first guess would be to pronounce Adah the same way but I would be less...

    Ooh, I'm loving Willa June having read your concerns about all of them. Willa took me awhile to come around to, but now I find it really serene but strong.

    I think Miles Blake Deaver sounds really nice - the names don't have a lot in common sound-wise but they don't clash, either. I don't like the repeating "S" endings in Miles and Thomas or the "D"...

    Using the 2013 SSA list, which has James at #13, I looked up the "percent of total males" numbers. It says James was given to 0.6706% of males born in 2013, which if I understand correctly means that...

    I agree that if Ava, Ana, Cara and Tara can stand on their own, so can Ara. The only alternative that I don't think has been mentioned is the name Eira - I think it can have a couple of different...

    I don't think Henry looks out of place with Rosamund and Elowen, for what it's worth.

    Yes, I think Owen would fairly clearly honour a Bowen. I've seen Bowen used as a first name and I find it kind of charming, so I'd be pleased to see Bowen Frederick too, but if you don't like Bowen...

    Wow, I had no idea that Natalia was so high on the SSA list! Some of them fly under the radar. That said, IMO it isn't such a popular name that she'd be likely to encounter a lot of other Natalias...
