Also, I know this name will not appeal to many people. Right now I'm really looking more for opinions on whether altering the name works or will be scorned rather than opinions on whether you like...
Poll: Heidrun, Heidirun?
I came across the name Heidrun today and really like it, especially the meaning - "bright, clear secret." I think it's pronounced kind of like heyd-roon, a long a sound in the first syllable and a...
I'm going to take the minority view here. I only had to say Harlow Price twice to hear "low price." It seems to me like the kind of thing one can't stop hearing once it's been pointed out. But on the...
This is tough. In my opinion, Jack Daniel is not ideal, but the whiskey is not necessarily a total deal-breaker. I think you should revisit your options - can you use dad's middle name? Another...
I like both spellings and pronounce them the same way. But with Violet, I prefer Juliet. They look balanced and evenly matched. Violet and Juliette is not as visually appealing in my opinion....
Go with Orla! I don't think the teasing potential is enough reason not to use this name. And Orla-Beth is just darling!
Stevie Evelyn is my favorite.
Stevie Eloise repeats a long e sound, may be a plus or minus to you.
Stevie Eliza and Stevie Amelia I find slightly more difficult than the softer e of Evelyn or...
I'm not familiar with Narkisa and am unsure how to pronounce it (my guess would be nar-KEE-suh). I find the -a from Narkisa and the O in Ofelia to be a little difficult back to back; likewise with...

Thanks for the responses so far - they are very helpful!
I think Isobel nn Libby really works! Especially given the connection between Isobel and Elizabeth, but even without that, you have all the right sounds. I hope your husband comes around to it. I...

How strong is the goddess association with the name Freyja? I understand that's kind of the origin of the name, but I'm wondering more about current perception. How many people will think sex goddess...

Just wondering what you all think about the rising popularity of Freya. It entered the SSA top 1000 in 2013 at number 906 (281 babies) and jumped to 584 in 2014 (512 babies). How high do you think...
I'm a fan. Yes, it is unusual and many people will have difficulty spelling or pronouncing it. But it's a good name with great significance and an accessible nickname. If they can handle the puzzled...
Poll: How to pronounce Elof
We recently discovered the Swedish name Elof and DH is a big fan. I'm just struggling to find the correct pronunciation. I've looked online and heard EH-lof (short e), EE-lof, (long e), AY-lof (long...
Poll: How many middles?
So. I love names. DH is down with potentially two middles, but I am sort of thinking of three. I know that's a lot. DH says it just isn't done, so we can't do it either. What do you think? Where do...

@trina14, oops, so sorry!
I love Mimi! Personally I would use a long form as a full name, but I think it works perfectly fine on its own. I just saw a sign for a high school graduation party this...

Doris, Emmeline, Clara, Susannah, Tabitha, Ruth, Laura, Maud?
Does the popularity/stylishness of the initial syllable Em- for girls (Emma, Emily, Emilia, Emerson, Emmeline, etc) impact your...

I wish Kjella was pronounced like kyella, with hard k and y sounds.

Thank you all!
@daphodil, Thanks for the encouragement about Emil! I think it is going on our list. :) Also thanks for the pronunciation help. Will have to stew on those.
@aw, I really like...

Thank you all for the wonderful suggestions so far!
@southern.maple, good lists! Many in the particulars/spectaculars lists are new to me, so I will have to do some digging and let some of them...

DH and I are just starting ttc, and I am realizing that if we have a baby we will only be able to use ONE name! So I am re-evaluating my boy name list at the moment. DH has...

I love Pax! Also love Knox and Dex! Dex I fell in love with after watching The Philadelphia Story (Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant). I think Pax is my favorite, then Dex, then Knox. Good luck!

The nature/lumberjack associations push me in the direction of boy, but the similarity to Kimber would make me unsurprised to see it on a girl. 65 / 35.
Unfortunately, like pps have mentioned, the...
