    Although it's a gorgeous name, I think Sofia is just too popular at this point for a first name. I, like a previous poster, had an insanely popular name growing up. It wasn't traumatizing or...

    I think most people out there are familiar with the name Margot and the fact the T is silent. I think you can go with almost all of the Margaret nicknames--Maggie, Mari, Mare, Maisie.

    I agree with PP, definitely a stand alone name, but also works as a nn for Cordelia.

    I think any of your girls names sound great with Lucia,but my favorite from the list is Eva. Mila feels a tiny bit overused recently and Giselle has so many spelling iterations it would drive me...

    A few of these may also be misspellings. Especially back at this time, many many people were not educated and some name spellings reflected that. My own great-great-grandmother (born and died...

    I hate to say this to you, but I think the spelling of "Lonna" totally changes the name. Lana is semi-exotic, beautiful, and unique but familiar. Lonna is a middle-aged woman (a la the era Donna was...

    Pretty sure it was originally a boys name and I think it still sounds strongly masculine. What makes it seem slightly feminine for me is simply that the most famous Sloane for my generation would be...

    I plan to have multiple children, but even if I only had one I would honor my grandfather with a middle for him or her. We were closer than I was with any other grandparent, which my parents...

    I LOVE the name Lucy as well and like you have some concerns with using it. It sounds silly with our L-heavy last name. Although Lucy Bell is a cute name, it is undeniably close to Lucille Ball....
