wow...everyone is assuming that Nameberry favorites are obviously "the best" names that everyone would be using, if only they knew about them!
There will always be different groups of people, who...

1. Bernedene or Vivian and Malcolm or William
I wouldn't have thought Amaryllis would work until I met one in real life...now it sounds completely normal to me!
I wouldn't use Mary as a nickname, though, because it doesn't sound anything like...
I agree with julery that Nameberry is not very good at predicting what the average person will think of a name, because Nameberries tend not to have very mainstream opinions when it comes to names,...
3. Rosella (but I like Roselle better)

I definitely like the sound of Ebony Luna Blossom better, but after seeing what others said about it being too wordy, I can see their point. Ebony Matilda Blossom doesn't sound quite right to me,...
My first thought was doxycycline, my second thought was the doxies from Harry Potter.

Ashley and Avery are the only ones that sound feminine to me

Bellicent (BEL-ee-sent) - sounds like belly-sent
Eimyrja (AY-moor-ya) - confusing, I think a lot...

I think it's alright for you to use the name, because:
1. They won't share the same last name
2. It's a common name and a lot of kids will have it (as your sister is beginning to see)
I agree that Lavender sounds more name-ish, but I feel like Lilac sounds more modern and pretty, and has a better nickname. Also, lilacs are one of the best smelling flowers, so I have good...

If you like Jane and he likes Anna, what about Janna? (Nameberry says to pronounce it yah-nuh, but I know a woman by this name who pronounces it jan-uh)

Some names that I think are similar to you and your fiance's style:
If it was a really rare name I could understand, but a hugely popular trendy name? Obviously there are going to be a lot of other kids named that! Maybe the friend or the sister or both should branch...

I would only avoid the name if a family member or a very close friend used the name. If it's someone you're not super close with, I would just ask them how they would feel about you using the same...

I think all kids get teased a bit, but if there is something really weird about them (like a really crazy name) it will be a lot worse. I don't think any of your name choices are a cause for concern...

I think it's great that the name would honor both sides of the family. Most people won't even wonder where you got the middle name, and if they ask you can say that it honors several different...

Iris Delphine is stunning!

My vote is for Iris. Finley is too trendy.

I like Antoinette, and Amadeus on its own is OK, but together they sound kind of pretentious.

Am I correct that your son's name honors his great-grandfathers only through his initials?...If that is the case, why don't you honor your daughter's great-grandmothers through initials too?
September 9th, 2013, 10:41 PM
I prefer Cora. Cara sounds kind of bland to me.

I think it is too much of a stretch because the "sal" part of Rosalie is not the part of the name that is emphasized. In fact, when you say Rosalie, the "sal" ends up sounding more like "zul" so you...
