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.
Like another poster, for some reason...

I'd say Loo-SEE-uh.
Possible exception: if the other names on the list involved a lot of Francesca, Gianna, Giovanna type names (Italian names popular with American families), I MIGHT say...

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
Poppy/Poppie: Poppy; like some of the others, when a name is also a word, I prefer the word-spelling.
Lily/Lilly/Lillie: Lily. ...
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....
I feel like in the media and in school anymore they only refer to STDs or STIs, not VD. So it's something some adults have heard of (but also something that wouldn't have occurred to me if I was...
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!
Personal thoughts: I don't mind it....
If they like the sounds of Alice - the A, L, and S sounds:
Alisa - the a at the end breaks up the s and the sh
Eliza - same thing
Alison - as suggested above :)
Hannah will always be pretty. But I think when a name is popular and has been for a long time, it kind of gets harder for people to appreciate because it becomes more like "white noise" as you're...
I have been crushing on this name lately! I love the sound and meaning and how it looks, but I do wonder if people would get it right. I think it's a "one and done" deal though: if you tell people...
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.

I have a cousin named Jill and while I found her name boring when I was younger, I really do think it's sweet. I think Jillian nicknamed Jill really is a solid, versatile choice. Jinny was a great...
Not boring! I like Anna the most. Hannah has had more of a fall then rise in popularity, so it is easier to date, whereas Anna has stayed pretty solid. But BOTH are classics that any baby would be...
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...
Gretchen - feels harsh
Aurora - suddenly makes me question my ability to pronounce the letter R.
Shelby - All of these were popular when I was a kid in the...
Tally is a darling nickname. I love the idea of using a cute nickname for whichever one you pick.
Tallulah Charlotte ("Tally") and...
Violet Estelle (Violet is short enough...
One of my school friends was named Shirley. As best I know, nobody ever teased her for it even though it was a bit different from all of the Sarahs and Ashleys. So many years have passed since she...
The flow is great otherwise but the repeated AV is tough for me too. Maybe you could replace one of the names with something similar that doesn't have the "av": Tatiana Aveline, or Taviana Ameline,...
I LOVE Posy and love that you will be using it! I would not use Auburn myself because I do think it's the kind of name best used if you have a real reason to, like the school or a surname (also: I'm...
I'm sorry, it reminds me first of cigarettes, especially because people tend to call clove cigarettes "cloves." I think of garlic too. Clover might be nice though. I understand thinking "why not...
Those names are on-trend but feel a bit vintage, too. And none of them are very long and complicated. They do have that extra something that makes them feel non-boring. I think part of the reason...
