    I like that these names aren't matchy-matchy, but they're all familiar names that you don't hear all the time. Definitely not a head-scratcher. Go for it!

    I do know a little Carroll, preschool-aged! It's refreshing, honestly.

    I think of Poltergeist but the names Carol and Anne are common enough (though not among babies) that there are many other...

    I like Vesper, especially in the middle. Since it's a word for evening prayers, and the name of an A.A. Milne poem about Christopher Robin saying his prayers, it reminds me of summer nights as a...

    Sara Nell makes a very sweet double barrel, but the two names need a bit more separation so you know that you're working with Sara + Nell. The beginning looks like Saran, as in saran wrap, so it...

    I guess if you can name a kid Ginger, Auburn is fair game, too. Maybe it's because I'm a redhead, but it's mainly a hair color to me.

    But it's also a place name and a surname and has a nice sound....

    I like Allison most and Alison almost as much. Although I'd realize Allyson was probably supposed to be pronounced the same, I'd fight the urge to say Ally-son.

    I find Malia so much prettier, even though they rhyme.

    I like Nola and June both, quite a bit. June has the short, great-grandma feel of Faye, but I slightly prefer Nola. Both Faye and Nola both have a tiny bit of mystery to them, and June feels like...
