I am of the opinion that education is never wasted. Whatever you learn will impact your personal development and what you bring to your children. I also think it's wise to remember that life can...
In German, it is pronounced LEE-zul, and definitely NOT LYE-zul. I prefer the more authentic Liesl to Liesel, though both are okay. It's a lovely name, even if it is a bit dated in Germany. Just...
I am in Canada and I also say ELLE-eh-na, similar to the Spanish pronunciation. I went to school with an Elena and that's how she said her name. I don't remember her having any hassles or being...

Not to be nitpicky, but it was actually Romania that encouraged its citizens to have more children than they could afford, through banning abortion and any kind of birth control and even forcing...

I'm assuming most of the little boys named Angel are hispanic. Angel is a very common boys' name in Latin America. Camila is also a popular Spanish name.
I've got no love for Khloe though. I...

Interesting topic. I really think it depends on both the culture and the individual what will encourage people to have more children. The province of Quebec, Canada, had a very low birth rate a...

I'm a big van of Minerva, the goddess of wisdom.

Congrats once again! I love nearly all of your first names! My favourites from the list are: Blaise, Cassian, Cyprian, Edmund, Gerard, Leander, Marius, and Victor. I love the middles Esmond and...

I've just been perusing the list. Aside from the out-there wacky spellings and names like Jakayla (??), I am floored that Larry is still in the top 1000.

My favourites from your list are Anastasia, Constance, Cosima, Lucienne, Myriam, and Rosamond. For the middles, I love Cassiane and Chrysanthe, as well as Floriane.

My first thought was whiskey, then bread, then the word "wry". I agree with Norbury that Rye Lee would be pretty confusing and look almost like a weird way to re-spell Riley. Would you consider...

It was a hard call, as I like most of your choices, but I voted for Vivienne Gray and Rose Evangeline. I like pairing the "v" names, but not with two first names. Vivienne and Rose are both so...

Gah, I somehow messed up and voted only for two. You can "add" one vote under Crosby Miles for me. :-)

I've heard the same theory from my friend's mom (who has four sons). She said that by the time her youngest was born, the oldest was able to help out so adding another baby didn't make things...

Whew, that was fun! My favourites are in bold.
Just the other day, I mentioned that Isabella was a popular name and my husband didn't believe me! To be fair, he works in hospitals and most of his patients are, um, no longer young, so he has very...
THIS. I am exactly the same. I loathe surprises. Even the idea of a surprise party gives me irrational discomfort. I will find out whether my future little ones are boys or girls ahead of time...
I'm with you on this. My husband loves Helen after his mother, and I never liked it before, but Helena has grown on me and now I love it. I prefer the HEL-eh-na pronunciation. I still don't love...

Are you pronuncing Sabine the German way as well (Sah-bee-nuh) as well? If so, that might help people know that the "e" in Nelle is not silent. Even so, in your case I would probably spell it Nella...
I love them all except Flora and Daisy! My favourites are Helena Corinne (I prefer the HEL-ehn-uh pronunciation) and Susannah Corinne.

I totally agree with this. The photographer is not only interacting with you, but also relatives, friends, etc. If he/she is snooty or rude, no matter how great the photos are, you'll still...

This is a fun thread. I am not a wedding person at all. If I weren't so cheap, I totally would have hired a planner. My advice isn't revolutionary: Spend (money and time) on what matters to you,...
MrsH, what a beautiful story and lovely pictures! I feel a bit like kindred spirits since we both met our husbands online when we were about to quit online dating, and I also had a very short...
There have been a couple of threads about this recently. One is here: nameberry.com/nametalk/threads/122671-Cloth-diapering-anyone? That thread also links back to a previous, very detailed, thread...

Laurence is not a boys' name in French. It is the feminine form of Laurent and would never be used for a boy. Laurent is actually rising in popularity; in 2007, there were 118 babies named Laurent,...
