Thanks, everyone! Interesting that Isobel is in the lead in the poll. I was expecting Veronica to be the leader for some reason! Maybe because I'm on a Veronica kick at the moment...but who knows how...
Poll: Isobel or Veronica?
If this little one is a girl, we're pretty set on naming her either Isobel Theophania or Veronica Seraphine, although I keep changing my mind on which one I want to use more. One day I'll be "She's...
My current name would be: Alexandra
My Nameberry name would be: Willow
My name from the year I was born that corresponds to my name's current ranking would be: Beth
My name from the year I...
I like Olive best with Charlie and Tilly, but I'm not sure about the combo Olive Rose, which seems a bit too botantical. If you're open to mix-and-matching, Olive Beatrice or Olive Josephine would be...

Okay, Top 5: Catherine (totally biased), Magdalene, Susannah (although I like the simpler Susanna spelling with the names on your list), Lavinia, and Lydia.

I'd be inclined to find a name that's more in the romantic style of Cordelia and Guinevere, since the rest of your list consists of sensible classics.
Magdalena (I'm swooning over the...
I'm kinda loving Scout Olivia, actually. Scout's not really my style, but something about those two names together just...works. And, yeah, Olivia's a common first name, but it's more unexpected in...
Since Aurora is so vowel-y, I think it works best with a name that starts with a consonant next to it, so my favorite on your list is Aurora Madeleine. Hope and Hazel could also work, but the...
I think it's totally fine for a Margaret to be nicknamed both Greta and Margie. My two-year-old son William goes mostly by Liam, but sometimes we call him Will, and he responds to both with no...

In addition to Percival, we've decided to drop Ulric (if we use a U name, we definitely prefer Ulysses) and Dmitri (disagree on spelling; DH prefers Dimitri). However, we've decided to add Luca and...

Sorry for any repeats!

@malloree: We're pretty set on either Alexander or Dominic as the first name, although I do rather like the idea of William and Vincent as brothers.
@lu_brasil: Thanks for the suggestions! I adore...

We're expecting baby #3 in late February. If it's a girl, we're all set. Her name will either be Isobel Theophania or Veronica Seraphine, and I don't see that changing (although never say never)....
Yeah, these are my thoughts as well. It does bother me a little that Alexander and Nathaniel are so much longer than Shane, but it's not that big a deal, especially if you tend to use nicknames.

I adore Crispin! If I could get my husband on board, I would name our next son Alexander Crispin in a heartbeat. I do think Theodore or Edward fit slightly better as a brother name for Cecily, but...

Heh, three of those names (Ophelia, Octavia, and Aurelia) were actually our finalists for our daughter Catherine's middle name, so I commend your great taste! We ended up going with Ophelia, but with...

Celeste and Nadine are French, so the Spanish Marisol does seem a bit of a style mis-match, IMO. I love the suggestion of Marina, though. It's not French, but because it's still generically Latin...
In a bubble, my favorite is Euphemia Margaret, but when I think about which name seems more like a sister to Flannery, I lean more toward the other two. Forsythia is frillier than Flannery, but the...

I love Bartholomew! We keep putting it on our list of possible middle names for Alexander, but even as a fan of long names, even I think Alexander Bartholomew may be a bit much. Still, on its own,...
If you love both names, then I would go with Rosalie, nn Rose. Then you have the best of both worlds. (I like Rosalie better with Soren, Leonora, and Phoebe anyway.)

I said it before in your first thread about the combo, but Wren Isabella is the first time I've ever liked Wren, so I vote to keep it. My second choice would be Wren Valentina. Some people have been...
