I love Cecilia as well! It's on my list too. Here are some underused classics (in my opinion) that have the grace to go with Cecilia:
Louisa Jean (Louisa & Cecilia)
Annabel Jean (Annabel &...
My name is actually Merideth (a cre8ive spelling that I don't reccomend) and I will confess that I have only recently started to appreciate my name. When I was younger I was jealous of girls with...
I think Lux could be a nickname for any of the "Alex" names: Alexandra, Alexis, Alexia, Alexandria. I even ran across an alternate spelling Alexus. I can also see maybe Louise, Luisa.
Thanks so much for everyone's input! I haven't run Genevieve by DH yet, but the more I say it the more adorable I think it is.
I love it in full, but we are nickname people so I'd love to have a...
Our last name is a German sounding two syllable name. I actually like alliteration normally. I tried to sell DH on Violet or Victoria V., but he wasn't interested in them. I only worry that the first...
I've recently started loving the name Genevieve and think it fits in perfectly with my list of "useable antiques". My only concern is that our last name begins with a V. Does Genevieve sound too...
I'd say that a bigger concern than the "next" issue is how similar it is to nix. I'd have a problem giving a person a name that means "nothing" or "to forbid, refuse or veto". It seems like such a...

I know nothing about Persian or Turkish names, but here are a few I found in the Turkish and Persian categories on Baby Names World that seemed exotic but still pronouncable to my English speaking...
Personally I love both variations. It just depends on what mood I'm in and what I'm going for. When I was craving a frilly southern-feeling confection that felt princessy, Annabelle totally fit the...
I'm in the minority here, but I'd go with Winrie. To me it looks more similar to Winnie and seems more like a name and less like a misspelling of the word winery. I agree with the pp that I much...

I love Arabella. It's on my list as well. Ari didn't really strike me (I think Ari Gold from Entourage) but I have it down with potential nn's Abbie or the sleek Elle.
Since Jane and Rudy are both shorter names you could always throw a third middle in there if you wanted.
Not to sure of your style but something like Jane Rudy Anne as an example.
My mind goes straight to my great aunt Lois, the retired high school math teacher who loved to knit. Needless to say Lois is still stuck in moth balls for me, but it feels like something that will be...

This one is a fun challenge for me because I love frilly. Lets try these:
I love Cora, and I love the alliteration of Cora Katherine. But really all your choices are great. I think Edith feels a little behind the other three as far as feeling fresh again, but it's still a...

I love Virginia, it's on our list as well. I'd also thought of using Gigi as a nickname for Virginia. While I love Hattie, I'm not wild about Harriet. I prefer Tabitha as a full name for Hattie.
I've always heard Zuzu as a lesser known nickname for Elizabeth, but you could also use Eliza. And even though it doesn't have an actual z in it, I think Liesel makes such a similar sound that if I...

What is your son's name? Just to give an idea of names you both like.
I'm definitely a list 2 girl.

What about Georgina or Lavinia? To me they both have old fashioned glamour and class.
As a Peter Pan fan I am more drawn to Moira than the rest, but I agree that lately I've been seeing the simple vintage appeal of Mary on its own. I also love giving Mary as a formal name and using...

I can see a certain amount of appeal in these names on their own, but I would not use them as a twin set. They are both nice words, but seem like a lot for someone to live up to.
As a twin myself...
I think Elise is lovely and I think there is Elise Emalie is a great combo considering the family significance. I like alliteration though, so I would say that.
What worries me is how similar...

First things first, if you are head over heels in love with a name then you should use it. Everyone else will come to love it or at least get used to it.
That being said, I don't mind Tallulah or...

I'm not sure if so e of these are uncommon enough or suit your style, but What about these:
Louise/Louisa nn Lulu (or Lou)
Amabel nn Elle
Adelaide nn Ada
Beatrice nn Bess
Julianne nn Jules...
