I love Georgia Louise. Maybe if your husband hears how nice it goes with Georgia, he'll reconsider? Georgia kate is really nice too, and I like Georgia Bess but that is probably my least favorite...

Oh he's not a name nerd, he just knows that I am so he's doing this to be nice =)
Yes our Ruth story is fun, and we've been going there for years, so we've seen her grow up from a sullen, scrawny...

Thanks for your input, @nameweary! I didn't even think of the history behind Dresden...honestly it came up because of one of my husband's favorite series, The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher (Holden...

Thanks for the suggestions, @lerenard! Several of your names are on our "long list" as well. We especially paused on Linus, and might bring it back...although I'm not sure how it sounds with our...

Oh I forgot! Maeve is a runner-up/middle option as well =)

@esrever88, thanks for all the additional suggestions! I hadn't thought about using Arielle as an alternative to Ariel--I agree it flows much better with Olive than Ariel.
@ruolan, Ruth Ariel is...

I've had a list of about a hundred names for almost 2 years, but it's only now in my 3rd trimester that we've actually sat down to start discussing names! I'd love to hear your thoughts on our...

Arabella was my first thought too. It shares B and R with her brothers, but in a more subtle way.

I did talk about it with a few close friends and my sister (not parents or grandparents or anybody--too much pressure!!). My husband really didn't want us to tell ANYBODY about the pregnancy until...

I actually prefer Arthur to Espen, and and think the sweet family connection adds so much to the name as well. You won't regret Arthur. Best wishes to your dad.

I like Anne and Marilla the best (love the nn Rilla).

I really wish Christine had used the spelling Truly. That being said, I started watching that show right around the time the men's choir I accompany did an (unaccompanied) barbershop version of the...

I don't like the repetitive "no" sound, and would be tempted to call her "Snoelle". There's lots of lovely Christmas/wintery themed threads here on the site though! I also love the name image you...

Augustus (nn Gus): I'm not a fan of these "ancient" names--I prefer August. Or Alexander.
Benedict: This one is nice in theory, but always sounds a little snooty in practice

Don't let anybody tell you when your "right time" should be, especially when it comes to another human being's life. The right time is when you and your partner decide it is the right time.

I like Hayden Frederick Krempl better! Cool name.

Sarah is too close to Claire, Fiona is too close to Noah. Juliana will work best in your sibset, and Juliana Kay is a very nice name. Personally, I prefer a less stylized version, Julia Kay*. Also,...
Most of the people on this forum tend to prefer more traditional spellings (and more traditional names). There are reasons to support it--conscious or unconscious prejudice and implied classism...

I'm not finding out!! (or, as I like to joke, we'll find out EVENTUALLY, but not before the birth). It's our first baby. Yeah, I know what you mean about it feeling slightly hypothetical. When we...

Gilbert Doyle Henderson sounds very handsome and distinguished!
For an R-name, how about Reuben Doyle Henderson?
Because your last name is 3 syllables, I think Carol flows better than Caroline....
Oh, and last name starting with S might be a problem, depending on how ess-y the name is, do you know what I mean? If the flow bothers you, it might, unfortunately, be a name to put on the "names I...
I like Brooks much better for a boy. It sounds handsome!

I personally like Willa better, if I were naming my own daughter, but I don't have any problem with Willow as a name. Just not right for my family. Of course, I would use neither for my own...
I wouldn't worry about it--it's a beautiful name that relates to so much more than "the lady who ate the apple". The Biblical Eve is such an interesting character to me--the whole creation story...
