Thank you for this :)
Oh, and the newly-approved Bror reminded me of Burr.

you read the thread title 'Middle name for These' and think 'hmmm, Thee-see, maybe related to Thisbe' for several minutes before the light dawns...

Willow is the only W name I don't hate! Sorry!
Prefer Beatrix for the funky '-x' as opposed to hissing '-ice', but both are nice with Caleb & Annabel. (Hmmm, just noticed that'd make first...

Harriet is an old, old favourite of mine. A frightening 22 years ago, I used it for my pet mouse (!), and am going to suggest it for the potential sister to my niece Lorna. Not surprisingly, Lucy and...
Want to like it but just can't. A book I read as a child may have ruined it for me because the words ugly, dumpy and mean spring to mind. And now - thanks to missmargot - I think I know which one!...
One of my favourite names (can't use as already in family). I really want to go with the traditional French Claire... but the sweet simplicity of Clare wins in the end.
PS Until I came on...
Thank you for fascinating thread, am thrilled to pick up some new Scandinavian names from other posters and read such 'telligent comments :) Specially like Rumle - pronunciation/meaning?
Thanks baillibsmum! Have to say I have a lot of respect for that family, from the couple of episodes I've seen :)
Love it by itself, NOT as nn for Margaret! :)
Ooh, I like your taste in names! (As well as Elinor/Eleanor, Clare, Grace and Rufus are great loves of mine).
Totally understand the pronunciation issue. For years I only liked Elinor, not...
So pleased to see Elke :) Elkie is one of my looooong-standing favourites, which I hope to use one day. I would use Willow as mn to avoid repeated 'uh' ending, also because it has a soft fluidity to...
Yes, I think so, that's one of the 11 I couldn't remember!
Anyone else watching this (mainly) for the names?
Loves & loathes?
Parents with good taste?
My fave so far are the Radfords (think that's right) with Oscar, Casper and Max being in my top 10. They...

Isolde Freya and Oskar Ebbe
...but like a lot of us (I suspect) this would be slightly different if the children were named one after the other, rather than simultaneously.
You have some of my favourites on your list, lovely to see them!
Tip Top: Casimir, Emrys, Hector, Leopold, Orlando
Very Nice: Leander (would be higher if it wasn't for nn Lee, ugh!), Lysander...
I love the name Felix but sadly can't use it for complicated reasons, otherwise it'd be in my signature! Maybe some of the others would take your fancy? Oscar, Edmund, Caspar, Max? I also like Theo,...
Tormy (thunder spirit) and Ebbe (final syllable can be pronounced -uh or -ee, derived from Esbjorn = divine bear) are in my top 10.
I also like Loki and Somerled (which is pronounced like 'Sorley',...
Absolutely yes - it's stunning! Beautiful to say and look at. I have loved it for going on 20 yrs and if I have a daughter she will be called Isolde or Isolda (the Latinised version). Most sources...
Does anyone have, or have you given your child, one name only? No middles?
I know it will probably be anathema to most 'berries, and there are plenty of good reasons for giving one or more...

Would like to echo everything tori101 said :)
Of the names you suggested, I think maybe Nathan/Nate would work where Nathaniel might not. Harriet/Hattie is a very good match. Or you might consider...
This week, I read about...
A man who told his wife that the name Matilda 'sounded too silly' so instead they named their daughter..... Lila-Lou!
A little boy who didn't understand how his mum...

I adore Elinor, I love how it looks and the sounds if you partition the name slightly El-in-or, so much richer than El-un-uh.
The Eleanor spelling has grown on me recently, but still prefer it a la...
Sorry to say that hyphenated names are one of my pet-hates too. I totally understand loving 2 names enough to want to have them in first name position, but hyphenating them seems tacky, forced,...
I have met a LOT of Leos, a couple of Henrys, but never a Maeve or an Avery!
