I live in northern NJ, in a town with several large ethnic minority groups (Hispanic, Indian, Polish), but i can only really comment on my own - Orthodox Jewish. You get a mix of very typical...

Claudia Celeste gets my vote, but Cecily Fiona is totally cool with me as well.
If it's set in stone and you need a nickname, I like Kel.
FWIW though (and you may have already thought about this), Garfunkel is usually a Jewish last name, and if you're looking to honor someone...
Love it, and it's totally usable.
It's a weird Shakespeare-ization of an ancient British king's name, which comes out more like Cunobelinus in Romano-British style, or Cynfelyn in Welsh. Names often get mangled when coming from one...
Maybe just Bari?
I'd have expected River in your sibset to be a boy - your girls have more distinctly feminine names. If you love it then go for it. But if you're thinking of fresh, nature-y names that aren't too...
I love Chloe, but Cleo just doesn't work for me. But then, i'm not one to care about popularity if i love the name.

I LOVE Joss as a nn for Joseph! So excellent. I know a lot of little boys who go by Yossi as a nn for Yosef, so Joss for Joseph looks right to me.
I love Lev, Samuel has never been my thing.
Shea. Rafferty is too trendy, it seems to be the new Quinn or Riley or something. Shea is both solid and mischievous to me. And definitely masculine!
I've never liked it! It seems like the quintessential smarmy spoiled white guy to me... the rich frat boy type.

Noa is a lovely girls' name, and very popular in Israel now. Noah is an unrelated boys' name; the "h" at the end is actually properly pronounced like the "ch" in Bach or loch. So Noa is fine if you...
I love Annia or Annika - or Anna. Antonia might get you to Nina while preserving Ana/Anna.
You definitely ought to be able to balance here!

It is Hebrew but very uncommon - it feels a little contrived to me somehow. I like Adira (which has the name root) or Atara (which means crown) better. Hadara or Hadar (which means...
I'm Jewish, FWIW. I'd be sort of surprised, not offended or anything, i just might blink at you for a second.
The truth is that Avram is very uncommon among Jews; the name Avraham is extremely...
Jonathan by a mile. If i didn't already not care for Jackson, i'd so be over it by now. Jonathan never gets old.

Josh for a boy is the only one i know he wants. He loves DD1's name, Elisheva.
He just said "Bob" and "Alfred" and "Valerie" when i asked, but that's b/c he's sick of me asking him dumb...
The Hebrew name Eila isn't pronounced like Isla, the first syllable is ay- (rhymes with bay). Ayla might be a better transliteration, and it does seem to fit your style.
i know an Emunah nn Emmy. You could also have Emmy be short for the initials ME. Other Hebrew names that might work -
Meital (nn Tali)
Temima (i love it w/ the nn...
No way. Might be a good nn for a fetus before he/she is born though.
I actually love John. If/when i have a boy he'll be Yochanan.
