The one young Blair I know IRL is a boy. I generally prefer it for a boy, but I consider it unisex.
It's uncommon enough that I think it would be easy to live with, boy or girl. It wouldn't be...
As a variation on the Starbucks test, I've done the "restaurant wait list" test--give the name to the hostess and wait for your party to be called.
It takes some explaining the first time you do...

Nikki. There was also a Caryn who came in a close second.

I have plenty, I guess.
1) It has to be easy to pronounce. No one gets our surname right, so I don't want the same problem with a first name.
2) It doesn't necessarily have to be the most...

I love the thought of Harvey as brother to a Fern.
Fern is one of my favorite botanical names, btw. Lovely choice.

Gwen Rosanna or Sam Alastair
Mischa is wise.
Personally, I love short and/or one-syllable names and alliteration (my son's initials are NHH), so those naming rules are too restrictive for me.

Ohhh, yeah! I think mid-century names are cool...so sturdy, steady, unfussy, and completely unexpected on a kid today. They stand out--in a good way, I think--among all the Brinleys, Masons,...

My grandfathers: Walter, which is now the name of my little nephew, and Donald
My great-grandfathers: Edward, Lee Roy, Jan (YAHN), and Filip

Use it. If you've loved the name since forever, not using it will probably bring you more regret than any amount of popularity could.

I technically don't have any duplicates, but I do have some very similar names. I have 5 boys with 2-syllable names that start with K. Three out of the five have the same first syllable. A...

My first name means "noble." My middle name is an 18th-century invented name that doesn't really have an official meaning, but it was created by combining Van ("of/from") from a Dutch surname with a...
I think it's a handsome combo.
As a lifetime comic book nerd, I wouldn't personally use Reed with your last name, but I think that's just a matter of choice. Though I would avoid it, I can see...

I would personally use Miles with Milo as a nickname, but that's because I love both names and it would be like getting a two-for-one. If you don't feel the same--if you're really just considering...
Oh, easy choice. Ingrid is one of my favorite names and the one I'd pick for myself if I had to change mine for some reason. I love it! I've never thought of it as cold and hard, but instead...

I think Lillian is the best fit with your other favorites (though I strongly prefer Lily on its own).
I'm in Texas, so I'm with the AB-uh-leens.

Leighton - boy, I guess. My real vote would be "neither."
Addison - girl
Tyler - boy
Mason - boy
Hayden - boy
Reece - Reese on a girl doesn't bother me, but I prefer Rhys and Reece for boys....

I love Nella, both on its own and as a nickname for Penelope, Helena, or Cornelia.

I wouldn't do it. Siblings should share toys and the backseat, not their names.
I used to live in a town in upstate New York where Aurelia was part of our local hospital's name. The two most common pronunciations I heard were ah-RAYL-yuh and ah-RAY-lee-uh.

I was 10 when I had my ears pierced. I wanted it, I understood what the piercing process would be like, and I was responsible for taking care of myself afterward (though my mother did supervise me)....
