Why would referring to "African" or "Asian" names would be insensitive? If it's an African name, it's an African name. Maybe it's specifically a Kenyan name, but using the word "African" doesn't make...

My taste in names over the last couple years has evolved to a style that is fairly consistent—I like pleasant-sounding, uncommon, yet not unheard of names that have a European sort of traditional...
I think Sylvie Isobella is really lovely.
As already pointed out, the two "v" names are a no-go. It makes for a triple "v" sound— "Syl-VEE-Vi-VEE-en."
But I'd like to add that "Lua" means...

I also have a grandfather named Leo, and we're considering Leonora for a girl to honor him. :)
(would pronounce "LAY-ah-NORa")
I am really not a fan of Sebastian... sorry! The name doesn't have any sort of meaning, and has NO good nick name possibilities. It sounds so formal and stuffy. Without a usable nickname, even...

My policy is that a veto is a veto. I wouldn't want to name my kid a name that his father hated, even if only at first.
And looking back over names I've brought to the table in the past, I'm glad...
Harold Arthur, or Francis Arthur.
Frederick, Wallace, and Walter are a little too far on the old-fashioned swing of things for me. "Wally" does not appeal to me and sounds weak. "Freddy" I could...
Ditto on the "please no" to Jaxton. That is just beyond dreadful.
I would prefer Jax to Jaxon because the latter is just trying to put a "youneek" spin on an already trendy name.
I also second...

Lincoln (the repetitive "k" sound in Lincoln Kai I don't like, though. Would prefer Lincoln Birch, Lincoln Atlas, Lincoln Archer)
Definitely pick a different name.

Elizabeth - Y
Amber - N
Ember - N
Lark - N
Robin - N
Wren - N
Emberly - N
Ebony - N

Oh! Congratulations on Marian! Sweet, cherished, beautiful Marian. So lovely.
For Marian's baby sister, my favorites:
Daphne—Magical, yet familiar.
Delilah—Sparkly and bewitching....

Swoon! Ditto above, Elowen Sage is breathtaking. I also love Indira, but I think perhaps Elowen is meant to be! She came to you in a dream, and now she's coming into the world early! Beautiful. <3

I understand and sympathize with your desire to adopt the babies. However, if it were me, I would need to ensure that I wouldn't be put in this position again, if I felt my family would need to be...

You can adopt when the time and situation is right for your family. She shouldn't be attempting to rely on you to clean up her mess. And open adoptions can be very, very messy indeed. Especially with...
What a thoughtful and considerate parent you are, OP. I agree that it may be a safer bet to go with a name that he won't be as likely to struggle with, especially as he becomes...
I think that in America, it would be difficult to get away with any other pronunciation than "EYE-ruh."
"AY-rah" is clunky on an American tongue. As is "AIR-rah." Sounds like you're trying to say...
Yay, can I join the club? :)
We are finally feeling ready to TTC, but I want another couple months to prepare my body (I need to gain a little weight, and I'd like more time with taking...
I definitely am interested in planning out birth months, and care about when the birthday is. So much so that we will definitely NOT be TTC in April because the baby would be due on Christmas day,...

1. Nevaeh (this one goes without saying, though)
3. Jaxon or, (dear god), Jaxxon. I can live with Jackson but I'm not wild about it.
4. -lyn smooshes. Gracelyn, Ashlyn, etc.
Hannah- I've never met a Hannah I didn't like!
Abigail- I think Abby is sweet.
Catherine- "C" all the way. Lovely, regal, wonderful name. "Cate/Kate" is sweet too.
Genevieve- TOTALLY works with...
Gah! This had never crossed my mind, but now it's kind of ruining the name for ME! Especially because I have an intense phobia of needles... (one of the main reasons why a home birth appeals to me is...

Audrey— It feels played-out to me.
Cora— I like it, but I tend to prefer names that have a little more substance, and can be shortened to a nn.
Violet— Sweet, but I don't love the nn potential....
No to Prim.
I actually really like Bellamy.
Naomi for me.
Or its variations, Noemi (Italian and Spanish); Noemie (French), if they match your family's heritage.
