Ahh, I do see the problem... Kids will find something wrong with any name if they really want to. Girls named "Amanda" get by just fine in life. I literally know a girl named "Aman" and it never...

I've heard it pronounced many ways, EFF-rum, EE-free-um, eff-RAYM, EE-frame... and probably others.
Personally, I love it pronounced EFF-rum and spelled Ephraim or Efrem.

Sebastian Leo will always take the cake for me. Love it!
In my mind, I've always said Selah as "SAY-la" and Sela as "SEE-la". I would expect a Selah to get called See-la from time to time... it's an uncommon enough name that you'll probably get the chance...
Ander is a name in Basque, and I like that a lot. Lander is also sort of common in the Basque Country. I don't love Lander so much (wordy in English) but I think Ander is great.
Ditto, I'm Canadian and I can't take Maple seriously as a name. A maple leaf is symbolic, the syrup is the tastiest, the trees are spectacular in the autumn. As a name? Nah.
Wow, Tokyo! Have a great time, Ren!

Tristram! Tristan, like rkrd, was my first thought, but Tristram is more uncommon and jives a little more with the others from the sibset. I do think Tristan is a great option, too.
I like Mungo...

Minerva was my first thought for a girl... and the only thing I could think of that hadn't already been mentioned. I'd like o put a second vote for Bertram for a similar boy's name :)

2. Top girl names?
Seraphine, Eleanora/ Leonor/ Eleonor, Sela, Maeve, Eulalia,...
I'm so sorry for your loss, Kristina.
I'm going to suggest Garnet. From what I understand, Garnet comes from the word pomegranate, which is "apple" + "seeded", so if I understand it correctly, and...
I don't think Winter is a "too far out" culprit all on its own. Personally, it isn't my style, but I know a lot of people like it. I do think that two word names together make for a wordy combo, and...
Edmund, hands down. My all-time favourite boy name <3 *swoon*
I love the name Atlas! Very bold, very unexpected, and very handsome. I think it's so neat :) It's on my radar for a future son, too.
Atlas Shiloh is totally fine.
Atlas Shipman works.
I think they're too matchy, and neither are names that are really used in Scotland anyway, especially not Mackenzie on a girl :/ If you told me you used Mackenzie on a girl to honour Scottish...

I'm Canadian and have lived in Spain for 2 years.
I say "lay-o-NORR" (normally) or "LAY-o-norr" (Anglicizing)
I LOVE Leonor!
Amaia is a very Basque name, super popular in the Basque Country :) it was the most common girl's name in the 4 grades I taught there. It really is lovely! I, too, prefer Amaia. You do see Amaya in...
Awesome! Thanks for keeping us posted :) I find the spelling compilations very helpful and interesting.

I don't mind Cyan, but Syldra does nothing for me. My SO likes a lot of word names and video game names, I keep telling him there's a certain feel that gives the same away as a video game name, and...
I think Gwyneth is really lovely! Very classy and feminine.
Clara and Gwyneth are gorgeous together!
They're great together! I adore Rosemary <3 I think Rosie and Kate are great nicknames (I prefer one from each nn grouping).

I think it's perfectly reasonable and polite to say, "Yes" when someone asks if you've picked a name.
And if they ask, "Oh, what did you pick!?" I think you're well within your rights to answer,...

I really don't care for Robert, and while I love the tv show Criminal Minds, Gideon Spencer is a pretty linked combo to the show, in my head.
I voted for Gideon Spencer anyway because the...

I used these in another triplet thread a while ago, but I still adore them and think they fit the bill.
