    I hate to say this to you, but I think the spelling of "Lonna" totally changes the name. Lana is semi-exotic, beautiful, and unique but familiar. Lonna is a middle-aged woman (a la the era Donna was...

    Pretty sure it was originally a boys name and I think it still sounds strongly masculine. What makes it seem slightly feminine for me is simply that the most famous Sloane for my generation would be...

    I plan to have multiple children, but even if I only had one I would honor my grandfather with a middle for him or her. We were closer than I was with any other grandparent, which my parents...

    I know plenty of Emilys and I still love the name. It is soft and sweet and as you said ages well. It also suits a variety of women/girls so there's less fear of it not "fitting." Yes, it's very...

    I think Ivan and Irving are fine together. They're not completely matchy because the style are different and the repeated sounds are surrounded by different vowels so it isn't too close to my ears.

    I prefer the Casper spelling. Even though I know the two spellings are pronounced basically the same way, whenever I see Caspar I instinctively say Cass-par instead Cass-per.

    Of your top three, Ezra would be my top pick. It is so full of history and so distinctive and dignified. It's also very versatile. I could see an Ezra being at the top of his class or a more artsy...

    I LOVE the name Lucy as well and like you have some concerns with using it. It sounds silly with our L-heavy last name. Although Lucy Bell is a cute name, it is undeniably close to Lucille Ball....

    While I'm pretty against changing spellings just to kyoot or uneek, I think that there is a lot more leeway when it comes to middle names and when it comes to honoring family members. So if it was a...

    I don't think Khaleesi is particularly useable. Its the same thing as naming your daughter Princess or Queen--it somehow feels a little tacky. I saw Pam comment on another thread and point out that...

    I prefer Anthony. Antonio has always felt like a bit "much" to me. I pronounce Anthony with the th sound. If you're going for the t sound, you could do Antony.
