I echo everyone else's love of Theo! To the names already suggested I would add (sorry for any repeats):
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...
You could combine Molly with Elizabeth to get
Emmy (M. E.)
Or do some other common M- nicknames
Or even Olly

Maybe something with a total change in sounds would sound better to you
Eloise Marian (close to Margot/Mabel)
Or a vowel to start could help...
I think it's beautiful! I like that it has an established, semi-serious first name with a surprising and sweet middle.
First off, you are putting way too much pressure on yourself! Ease up! You have recently given birth to a healthy, beautiful baby. On top of that, you are also caring for another child and dealing...
Having the most popular name doesn't necessarily mean what it used to. The year I was born (judging from your signature, you're about the same age), the number one boys' name (Michael) made up 3% of...

What is it that makes you feel strange just knowing that someone knows someone else with the name? I think, short of inventing your own name, that you will always find some connection, even remote,...
Another way to get to the nickname Rosie would be Primrose. Sounds like a prim and proper name to me :P (couldn't resist the bad pun).
I would add these suggestions (sorry if there are repeats,...
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.

I love all three names, but I chose Charlotte because I think it sounds best with your last name. Amelia would be my second choice. I would be concerned about Bea Gross also, because if she goes...
Of your list, I most like Santino Luca. I think that is very distinctive, but still approachable. And I think the name Luca is darling. I could picture pronunciation issues with Gianvito and Gaetano...

I don't really see why he'd get particularly made fun of for the name Harry Hinchey. If you're worried about "hiney" like the previous poster suggested, any first name still leaves that possibility....
When I hear the word Buttercup, a flower is the last thing from my mind. The much closer associations are the Powerpuff Girls, My Little Pony, and that old song "Why Do You Build Me Up Buttercup?" ...
I like previous poster's suggestion of Eleazar Anthony. I also could imagine it being paired with:
Eleazar Alexander (probably my...

Oooh I think Noah Hawthorne is fantastic!
I would suggest:
