    My thought when I saw Paige, Nora, and Annie: they sound like they'd be the leading ladies in a romantic comedy. That's a compliment - they're feminine but also kind of casual/comfy. I like them...

    It sounds more masculine to me than a lot of the -lee / -ley names. Must be the Finn part. I'd assume boy but like PP said, it wouldn't be shocking on a girl.

    My (French Canadian) great-grandmother pronounced it Ap-o-leen. It's a female version of Apollo, so cool! But I could see it ending more in an eh/a sound in a German pronunciation. Apolena is another...

    Jane and June are both so nice. I'm afraid that the names I can think of with the same sounds as Jane and June don't have the same FEEL, but I'll toss a few out there, mostly starting with the j/g...

    Emily/Emilie: Either! Emilie is so pretty but Emily is more no-fuss

    Islay is very nice! Depending on where you live, people may not pronounce it like the the Scottish island. In North America you will probably have that problem, but probably not if you're in the UK....

    Elsie Otter

    If you follow celebrity baby names, you've probably been wondering what Zooey Deschanel named her little one. And Elsie Otter is certainly very Zooey Deschanel!

    It's not my personal style, but I do like the idea of carrying on a family name and getting creative with it. Like some others, I prefer Hallie, but that would also be a good nickname for Hallyn.

    Not trashy, no. I would expect maybe a parent who's a little hippie-ish or New Age. Something unexpected in the middle almost never feels "trashy," I think it's sort of a restrained way to use names...
