Don't know if this helps - there are two James' under 9 on my husbands side of the family (there are 4 more who are adults). The family tends to name very conservatively and by old Irish Catholic...
I guess this is a Pam/Linda question or a Moderator question but can they just be banned?
These "what names do you hate" threads popped up a a while ago, around the time I started not checking in...

I think it's silly to choose a fn with the same root as the ln. The reason is simply that you are duplicating the meaning of a name. I would take that opportunity to choose a name that has a...
I like Garrett best because I like both Garry and Rhett as nn options.
Gareth is my second favorite because it is softer - I guess Rhett could work as a nn but it's a little bit of a stretch - Garry...

Sonja (prefer this over spelling to Sonya)
Sharona (mostly cause I just heard the song today)
Sheherazade (maybe too out there but Hera would...

Longer names with nn hands down.
I have a cousin whose daughter is going through what might just be a "I want to be a boy phase" or it might be the first signs of a transgender person. This little...
I think Fyfe is a great name for a brother of Juno.
I was going to ask if you wanted to stay with the Roman theme or the God/Goddess theme or wanted to avoid it completely.
I like like Juno...
From your favorites I really like Caspian. However, I'm not sure making a ton of suggestions makes sense for your husband. He sounds a bit like he's in a veto mode. I get that sometimes it's hard to...
Quinn and Elliot are sort of among the more accepted gender-bender names - I'd suggest choosing another one like that.....
Clarke (while in "The 100" - I think - is still a masculine name).
I find Twila quite charming. It's always strikes as as great combo between soft and quirky and name and word.
Well GAS is probably not great....

You had so many fantastic suggestions, I apologize if I duplicate the, (at some point one just cant keep track).
I get that you want a name that both you and your husband like... but it is so frustrating when guys do this. It's really sweet of you to completely revamp your list without much input for him. But,...

Sophie-Claire Juliette, Sarah Katherine Lea, Serena Isabel and Caroline Augusta Jane.
Grace Margaret Eve
I sort of love that Grace is a classic solid name but also a virtue name. It somehow...
I usually like going with the simplest spelling (unless there is a reason not to....) so.... Isabel.
But since you are also honoring an Isabella - Isabelle does make good sense.
Endora: not listed | Lorelei: #501.

I really love Noor and will be considering it as a mn in the future. It has such a beautiful meaning and sound.
I think Juliet and Ophelia are fine as sibling names. But yes they do scream Shakespear. Though Ophelia does that for most people anyway. (Personally I prefer the spanish Ofelia because it's less...

I'm a huge fan of literary names but I feel like some times one has to be careful not to fall into the "I'm smart and eclectic" name-nerd pit. I do it a lot! I think it's because we see...
Thanks for the links to behindthename.com. I had looked at the all in the past - it is my go-to site - but it's always great to take a second look. Really appreciate it.
That's a tough one.... I want to say I'd still use it but I can't really say that for certain. Honestly, every time a friend has a baby I let out a huge sigh of relief.... so far only one person has...
Haha. I'd thought of that Hubby isn't too keen on it though. He thinks the animal name genre is odd.
Mordecai, always had a bit of a dark mythology, wizardy/magic feel to me.
Names that sound/feel like Mordecai to me are:
You could also due Vincenzo or Vincent nn Enzo. Or Lorenz/o nn Enzo as well. All of those would also sound good with Reed. And would allow you to keep Enzo while not strictly choosing an E name.
I think the combo works just like that and would mesh well with your Ophelia combo. They feel like the could be sisters.
