Ohhhhhh, one more if you are going for something uplifting and peaceful: Haven.
I love the name -- it is under-used in my opinion.
Also, Opal. It's time that Opal made a comeback!

Hello there! So many possibilities! Best of luck narrowing them down further.
I don't know why, but I would like to add ... Tatiana.
So much fire and beauty in that name!
I am sorry -- for some reason, I assumed you were looking for girl names. I just realized this was posted under the baby boys forum. Are you looking for formal variations of Riley for a boy? And I'm...
That's a tough one! I've never thought about it. I have a friend from high school whose oldest daughter's name is Riley. She is a teenager now, and it has aged with her very well. I think of her as...
I do not think Lennox sounds too feminine.
I do, however, get the "brand-name-as-a-name" vibe, even though I know that is not your intent. Names in that category would include Tiffany, Harley,...

If you go back to the New Testament, where Elizabeth/Elisabeth originated (I believe), her husband's name was Zechariah. Zechariah is extremely strong and stylish, much more so than Zachary.

This is a tough one! Ava Grace is gorgeous, but there are soooooooooo many little girls named Ava. I taught gymnastics, and I had an Ava and an Ella in every single class. I fear Ava will one day be...

I do not hate these names, but whenever I hear them on a child (or any human, for that matter), I feel sad.
Declan -- I dislike the sound of it, the trendiness of it, and the "HEY, WE ARE PROUD TO...
Daughter 1: Naomi Eve
Daughter 2: Barbara Joy
Daughter 3: Graceanne Isabelle
Daughter 4: Henrietta Rose
Daughter 5: Nadia Rachel
Daughter 6: Annabel Lee
Daughter 7: Mara Libby
I do not think Ivy is ruined. Really!
I am from the Midwest. Where I live, people pronounce Ivy and I.V. differently.
When saying Ivy, the emphasis is on the long "I" sound.

Remember Jan's baby, named Astrid, on "The Office" (in the U.S.)? Astrid is such a beautiful name!
However, two of its letters were inverted by people preparing a baby shower, resulting in Astird...

Here are my own opinions. ;-)
1. What is the best-named family of the list? Mary Amelia, daughter of John and Estella Grace, 1919
2. If you had to choose a name for a baby girl using only...

Members of America’s “Greatest Generation” had some pretty great names – it turns out, so did their parents.
I work for a large newspaper in the Midwest and have been recording names from...
I personally think sisters named Heidi and Clara would be absolutely adorable! After all, readers are leaders!
I love many of your other possibilities. I have a soft spot for Annabel, another name...

Valentina is gorgeous! Valeria is another stunning, multicultural option (I know a child of Russian descent named Valeria, and a Latina in her early 20s named Valeria ... Anyway, I love girls' names...
Mary, Mara, Miriam, Maria, Mariah or even Merry: "Mary, Did You Know?"
Angelica, Angela, Angelina, Angel: "Angels We Have Heard on High" or "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing"
Belle, Bella, Caroline,...

I recently met an overwhelmed mother with three very active children. I couldn't work up the guts to ask how she and her husband settled on these three particular names for their children. I was...

Laura is stunning -- feminine and light, yet strong and determined.
And yes, it is a classic! Lauren is old news. Laura will never feel dated.
(I coached gymnastics as a hobby until recently...

Thank you so much, everybody! We are still so torn. We love both.
If we went with Naomi, would anyone have trouble with the initials N.E.G.?
For awhile, we considered Naomi Abigail, which would...

Augustus is great, but I think August is actually stronger. I know a little boy in Des Moines, Iowa, named August. He is ALL BOY!
My favorite on your list is Philip.
Other "old guy" names that...

I was born Dec. 22. My parents named me Nicole, after St. Nicholas (I literally came home from the hospital on Christmas Day in a stocking the nurses made for me!)
I disliked my name growing up,...

Oh, thank you SO VERY MUCH, berries! All of your advice is outstanding.
Before, I was leaning toward Naomi, but after thinking about everything you have said, I'm loving Veronica Eve. One saints'...
