    Unfortunately, Native American names are very, very difficult for several reasons. The "Native American" label encompasses an entire continent- asking for an American name is like asking for a...

    What would you call this style?

    I think the names below are all on trend, but not necessarily popular, and modern but all with histories. What would you call this style, and are there any other names you would add?

    Do you think it could cross over though? Not whether you want it to, as I'm sure most berries don't, but whether it will.

    I think Fable may be the most wearable as a first name- it sounds a lot like Mabel and Hazel, which are both experiencing a growth in popularity, and Fay is a simple nickname.

    Clover sounds very...

    Tristan?

    I met a little girl named Tristan the other day. I don't care for boy's names on girls and I'm not a fan of Tristan in general ("triste" means "sad" in several languages) but I wondered about its...

    Thanks for your input! I wouldn't say I'd actually name the child after Sojourner Truth, it's just a positive association for a name I like the sound of.

    As a middle, absolutely. As a first, unfortunately not. Winter's Tale is probably my favorite Shakespeare play, and that Hermione is in my opinion one of the best female characters in all of...

    I love Hayes, I'm so glad to see someone considering it! Both choices are great and fit well with sisters' names. I like Bennett too so you really can't go wrong!

    It's a great fit. All the names you have are more popular in the UK, and Callum definitely fits with that. Callum is a little more modern than Oliver, Henry, and Charlie, but Harrison is too so it...

    Sojourner

    Sojourner is a bit out there, even for me, but I'd like to hear everyone's opinions. Do you think it would be appropriative to use it on a white girl? Sojourner Truth was a great role model for...

    My first guess is add-a-line, but I wouldn't be surprised to hear -leen or -lyn, and I believe they're all correct. Personally I like -lyn best.

    If you like it that much, it might be worth abandoning the no repeat initials rule. Meredith and Miriam are similar, but not confusingly close, so it's not a huge deal to have them as sisters. It's...

    Thanks for your feedback! I'm not sure that the t is pronounced- I think it might be said like "merlot." So my best guess at pronunciation is ahv-uh-low, but I really don't know!

    I like Annabel because of Annabel Lee. Annabelle is second for me, and Anabel third. I really dislike the other variants.

    Avelot?

    Avelot was mentioned in the "Medievalizing a Name" post- does anyone know anything about this name? I haven't found any information on my own.

    I like both; Anna is timeless, and Annabel has more flexibility with nickname options. If you're torn, I'd say Annabel- you can always shorten Annabel to Anna.
