I think it's way too cutesy for a standalone first name, to be honest.
As an adult woman, I would hate to be called Maisie. It really is a bit twee.
Cute as a nickname, though. Love Ismay.
I love Mabel and Annika. I barely registered the middle names, as I don't think they ever get used.
Elisabeth and Rosemary might be 'classic', but they bore me to tears, I'm afraid.
I really wish people wouldn't. :(
My nephew is Charlie, and I think it's such a manly man's name, whilst still being gentle (if that makes any sense). I don't want it to be used on girls.

I love Sasha and Summer for girls, but feel as if I 'shouldn't'.

Oooh, I'd go for Eden and Willow!

My first thought was Eibhlin Maeve!
I love Carys, but don't like Sawyer at all.
Carys Elizabeth is beautiful.
Pierre is not feminine at all. It's all boy.
Daniele is pronounced differently to Daniel, and yes, it looks (to English-speaking people) like a girls' name.
Stick to Daniel, I think.
I think Chickadee goes beyond cutesy and into ridiculous...sorry. I would never saddle a child with that, even for a middle name.
June is very sweet for a first...not a fan of Edna, though, as I...

I actually have a pet hate that's kind of from the other perspective.
It irritates me when people justify their name choice with, 'It's a family name' or 'It has special meaning to us'. As in,...

I way prefer Noelle Iris.
Not a fan of Vera, at all. It just makes me think of 'severe'!
That's a no-brainer for me, since I love Miles but think Colin is quite awful. (Dated, uncool, geeky in a bad way....just nothing I like about it, I'm afraid.)
A 'dill' in Australia is a silly person. 'Don't be such a dill!'
So...no, because that's all I can associate it with.
Hmmm, my old high school was called Stella Maris! (Catholic school: 'Star of the Sea', to refer to the Virgin Mary.) And it's not the only one in Australia. There is also a seafarers' centre in town...
I have a friend whose daughter is named Perry. In all honestly, I don't like it at all. I don't find it feminine or appealing in any way.
Perry sounds like an old man, IMO.
I don't think...
I know it's originally a boys' name, but for a boy I'd go with Sacha or Sascha.
Sasha is my guilty pleasure for a girls' name, I have to admit. Kind of love it.

In real life, I'm kind of sick of Olivia, Lily, Ava, Ruby, Sophie, Rosie, etc.
On Nameberry, I'm really tired of Penelope, Genevieve, Wren, Beatrice, Eloise, Felicity, and...a few more.
I like Madeline the best. It's more streamlined than Madeleine, whilst still being a 'legit' version of the name.
I don't like any of the others at all.
I can't imagine having pronunciation problems with Zoe. It's the original version of the name, and very popular in its own right, regardless of the rise of Zoey.
Zoey looks wrong to me. The 'y'...
I love Juliet.
Mia and Charlotte are both a bit overused for my liking.
I'm not a big fan of Nora, but I LOVE Nola.
I've heard both -mon and -moan endings, but -moan is far more common here (Australia).
I don't like it, because of the -moan thing...just not a nice sound, IMO. :(
I love Ella, but prefer Elena (shame about your hubby! :( )
Olivia is done to death here in Australia, and I'd happily never hear it again (sorry). Ella is not exactly uncommon either, to be fair,...
I've loved Nadia ever since I was little and went to school with a beautiful girl with long straight brown hair, who was a star athlete.
I think it's that lovely combination of easy to pronounce...
