Seamus is in Harry Potter, which I think has helped raise the familiarity somewhat. I love it.
I dislike Shamus, partly because it looks like Sham-us (as in fake).
For some reason I thought Ada could be said Aid-a or Add-a, while Adah was always Add-a. But it may be a case of my old reader's tongue acting up. (I say certain words a bit funny as I read them...

What a stunning name. Welcome, Juliet!

Paul is my favorite boys name. I love the name David, and both are family names, but there's something about Paul that seems especially handsome and solid. Peter's a superb choice too. Any of them...

Cassius is a little too close to Magnus for my taste, but Cassian or Caspian would be great.
I really like Benjamin.
I usually call her St ZENya, but I've heard her called St KSENya too—and I've seen it spelled Ksenia. I think both are valid in English, the way Tsar and Tsunami in English are often said Zar and...

I'd say the first two MAG-da-lenn. (I say Mary Magdalene the same way.) I'd say Magda-layna for the 3rd, but I could see a Lenn-a nickname from that too.
Yeah, absolutely. I'm more drawn to Greek names than I'd realized, especially Minerva, Hermione, Philothea, Theodora, and Althea. Also I apparently love names involving Thea.
I adore Welsh names...
Bea (bee) is my favorite, because I know one. Tris is rather sweet and lovely too. Betsy might be lovely depending on the child.

Violet and Agnes make sense to me—Ivy feels too close to Sylvie, since it has the same number of syllables and the vee ending, and I-like-pie and i-like-sit are so close in sound.
Agnes isn't a...

For both Susanna and Rosanna, you could use Sanne (SAN-eh). I love Rosanna and would be thrilled to meet one.
Emilia is unfamiliar enough that you could perhaps get away with insisting on a new...
Artichaut...love it! Can he pretend his name is Arthur when he gets older? Ooh, or could there be some play on words about artichoke hearts and how the heart of truth is freedom for all mankind? ...
Oh, Ren, I'd love to read this. It sounds amazing.
The most memorable titles are The Song that Broke the Sky and The Song that Broke the Storm, but of the two I find the storm imagery more potent.
Oh, Ottilie how lovely. Marian is one of those perfect names—warm and elegant, familiar and rare. How beautiful.
Viola is my favorite. Marian and Viola; oh how perfect.
Viola Zephyrine Isolde...
4. Bellatrix (dang it, Rowling!)
Amabel and Christabel(le) are next on the list.

Poet. The word Minnow is pretty, but the animals are kinda gross. They're fine in the pond, but yikes as a name.
What about Minna?
Aurore could be part of a longer name, meaning "Dawn of the Republic" or "Dawn of the Revolution" or something.
I like Unité, Fleur, and Verité.
Oh, la Liberté ou la Mort (liberty or death) was...
Hmmm. Jasper and Jonathan are a little different, in my mind. Jonathan and Scott fit together, but I wouldn't expect Scott and Jasper together. Elvira seems very different from Kathleen, Jonathan,...
God grant her many years! Cassiane is a powerful patron saint indeed.
It's good to see you again. I'm so glad to hear of Cassia's safe arrival, and her beautiful name! You've been missed around...

I think Lily and Lillian both work perfectly well on little girls or adults. I like Lillian better, personally.
I like Lillian Frances or Lily Frances quite a bit. Lily Francesca is a lot of...
My favorite is Anne, but Anna's a close second.

Noelle Delilah — lot of L, not the best flow
Noelle Seraphina — not bad, I like the names together but the flow seems off; Noelle Ophelia maybe?
Willow Seraphina — eh, W's NMS and I get...
I like Ebba. I like that it's unusual and that it reminds me of the tides. All in all, though, I'm more excited about Emma.
I love Basil and Valerian. I like Caraway, especially as a middle, and Juniper for a girl. I think Coriander, Yarrow, and Sorrel would also be smashing middles.
