Maybe another plant name?
I think Marianne, or Marine are obvious choices if you don't want to use the actual names. If you do, then you have plenty of nickname options. Mary Suzanne could go by May, Molly, Maisie, Marcie;...

I guess it's unavoidable that a Finnegan would be called Finn sometimes but I don't think it should make you give up the name if you really, really love it. I think it works if Finn was mostly an...

Emma has been used for hundreds of years; it has countless historical, literary, and cultural associations. It's popular but it's also a classic that works in all sorts of contexts and can be...

Gabriel Evander. I like both names, but I'm not sure I'd go with an A middle name in your case (although I have to say I did not notice it until someone pointed it out). Plus I think Alexander feels...

I like them both, I slightly prefer Emery because it has a longer history as a name but Emerson would allow you to use both names that you love. Though choice!

My favorite from your list is Magdalene —*a timeless classic like Margaret that is as fresh and unusual as Magnolia.
To avoid the obvious examples (more exotic names like Margarida, Margaretha,...
Of course not? Closeness in sound only matters if you're talking about siblings. Obviously no one would mistake baby Theo with grown up Leo in a conversation, nor think you named Theo in honour of...

Frankly unless you go with Julian, Julianus, Julius, Jules, Julio it really doesn't count as honouring a Julie. I really feel like you should be more insistent with your husband: after all, it's only...
I think Anna-Rose Tatiana is lovely! It doesn't sound repetitive at all.
I think you mean Thyra —*it's a Scandinavian name that is often used in European royal and noble families. I think it's wonderful.

I think it's lovely and works great with Maeve and Rose. All three names are vintage and have a slight Irish feel.

I think Lucas is a nice compromise. You could always use Miqueas as a middle name.
I think it's wonderful. The fact that the dad is called William only makes it more special IMO. Mina/Minnie is a great choice. Mimi or Winnie could work too.

Sorry for any repeats!
Ophelia: Ophie (like Sophie), Olie, Ophelie, Phelie
Hephzibah: Hebby, Zy (rhymes with Sky), Hez
Hadassah: Hadlie, Sasha
Persephone: Perry, Sepha, Nene, Pip

I think Nayara and Alora sound rather modern and unusual so I don't think classic, familiar names like Victor or Elias would be a good choice. I think Orlando and Miguel would work here (both are...

I think Marjorie would be lovely on a little girl; it was actually one of the top rising names in America in 2013 (maybe because of the Game of Thrones character Margaery Tyrell). It's so strong and...

Ophelia and Penelope! A gorgeous Greek literary sibset.
Flora would be my second choice.
I like Leonor (though it's super overused here in Portugal) but I think it sounds funny when...

With Valentine I prefer Phoenix; both are unisex names and have associations with power and strength.
I don't think Nova works particularly well with Valentine; it's too short & girly in comparison...

I think it's safe to assume William & Kate will pick a name based on their personal taste, but still an appropriately royal name. George Alexander Louis is like a conventional royal name but it shows...

I'm not as fundamentalist about surnames/boys names on girls as I used to, but personally I do have a problem with people taking names from other languages (in this case Welsh) and using it on the...
I'm really sorry if I sounded impolite. I was just trying to point out the problems of using a name from a language we aren't fluent in; it's absolutely normal to mispronounce them, and that's why...

I imagine being an international (non-EU) student, your admission process would be a little different from regular students. UK universities have places that are reserved for this kind of students...
