Willow Brooke sounds like a housing development or some other sort of place name

I'm at a similar place in life. My mother was also a stay-at-home mom and I am glad for that. With most careers, I would be afraid of exiting the workforce completely to raise children. I'd want...
I like it. I'm a sucker for names from the cosmos and similar sounding boys (Ewan, Everette, Everest, etc)

I thought of Lucy from Charlie Brown, who isn't nice.
I have a friend with a little Leighton, and I dislike the name. It feels like it is trying too hard to be "cool" (trendy). The "LEE-ton pronunciation is not intuitive, imo.

Just a note that Marin isn't just an alternate spelling; it's an alternate pronunciation as well. The accent is on the second syllable rather than the first.
I like Florence because of the lovely Florence Nightengale association. I predict an imminent resurgence of Florence being used as a name again.
Oh, sorry...nicknames. I knew I was forgetting to mention something: People often bring up "Amy" or "Ammy" or something as nn possibilities...which, sure, I suppose those could be usable nicknames,...
Emory James or Emery James if you must use James.
2184Yes, I would love to meet anyone else named Amity. You'll still get the Amityville Horror associations once in a blue moon, but even when I was growing up in the early 90's it was rarely...
I agree Valentino and Valentin are nice alternatives.
Evander Thomas is my favorite, followed by Evander Sterling. Another name that might fit your taste: Hadrian? Hadrian Thomas.

Of your paired down list, I like Beckett best but I've always had a soft spot one for that name since I'm a huge fan of Conan O'Brien. None of your names are bad, but my least favorites are Griffin...
McKinzley feels juvenile and indulgent; something only an preteen could dream up. A prime example of how more is not necessarily better. It is the worst tryndee smoosh I have ever heard. And it's...
Hypatia (best name ever, if it didn't feel so weird)
Halona -- Afraid of offending other cultures
Kavita -- ditto. Ah, such a beautiful name!
Portia -- Stupid...
I'm like that in real life but not online. I once told my best friend my favorite name (at the time) and she looked at me like I was crazy. So lesson learned, never again! Our childrens' names...

@emilyva your dramatic reaction to my warning strikes me as suspicious. If you truly are looking for names for your child, I hope that you want to know that there is disgusting urban slang related...
sigh-ann with equal emphasis on both syllables or a slightly more on the first
Since you don't live in New York, I wouldn't worry about it. I do think Elliot Spitzer, but most people are not news nerds to the extent that I am. Plus, he won't be in the spotlight forever. It's...

Ooh, one of my favorite topics!
First off, the "F" names--especially Felicity and Florence. Francis will go gangbusters.
Vera appears to be poised for an exponential rise on the SSA list....
Congratulations, and good luck!

Yes, I've heard it in comedy movies and maybe from HBO-type comics. Combine poo and sex in the most disgusting way possible. I had to look it up on Urban Dictionary to find out the (supposed)...
