I've met 3 baby girls under the age of one this week - one was Eileen (eye-leen rather than ay-leen), which I've always thought was so lovely and underused - I always get excited when I hear dated...
Anais Hildegarde and Sofia Hildegarde sound best to me - they're equally quirky-'European' as Hildegarde, but are glamorous and light-hearted enough to even out it's clunky factor. They sound like...

So it's not like *all* the babies I know have cutesy vintage nicknames or anything haha.

Woo - sentimental teenagers!
Honestly I think Rita is lovely. It has such a lovely old-Hollywood feel. What about Margarita? Then you sort of include Rita and Marie? If you wanted to honour her...
Thoreau, as in Henry D.
It's just so perfectly obscure and French and rolls off the tongue so well.
I also like the idea of Darwin. Because... Darwin. Y'know.

I voted Xanthe and Delilah since they're my favourites and I think they both work well with your surname.
Probably already been mentioned, but there must be hundreds of little girls named Poppy in the UK.

Ah, I should have said, Zosia is ZO-shah.
Zo rhyming with go.

So this is my not yet reviewed girls list which I'm sort of hoping you'll help me cut down a bit.
I'd say these were the most representative of kids in my year at school (and the years above/below, lots from other schools too). Or at least these are most of the multiples...
Sophie x 5
I've liked it since I heard it was the name of Judd Apatow's daughter.
Arabella Maude is one of my favourites at the minute. It's so sweet and old-ladyish, and Maudie is just adorable.
Amaya means 'night rain' in Japanese which I think is beautiful, if you don't like the Spanish meaning of Amaia.

Sibyl, Stella, Sylvie, Sosie, Snow, Saskie, Siofra & Seren.
Seraphina would have been in there if the rest weren't so nickname-y.
TAH-lee, like Tally.
On a girl.
I just realised half of my message was deleted before I posted it.
I meant to say, that I would never even consider sending any child of mine to a private school. I believe that education should be...
I'm in the UK here, so it's obviously a bit different.
My mum wanted send me to a private school, but my dad is very very strongly against any form of paid education. He lived abroad for a lot of...
They're all lovely, really lovely. I love Magnolia Juno from your signature especially. Isadora Beatrix is just perfect too.
My friends are 15/16 and I tend to keep my love of names on the low....
I like Courtney. It's very dated (and in my area there's a bit of a stigma with it being a 'chavy' name) but I like that.

Lucie Valentina would be lovely.

Q names. Oh dear. This could be a bit mish-mash...
Queenie, Quilla, Quintessa, Qidira, Quince, Querida, Quitura and Quiana.
I think it's pretty much accepted as a 'unisex' name. I don't like it on a girl, personally, but I suppose it works. I like it a lot more as a nn for Juliet [D-name].
I LOVE Judy!

Rose Arabella is literally the most beautiful thing ever.
Both that and Rose Evangeline are pretty perfect to be honest. Actually, you can't go wrong with any of them.
