The first name that popped into my head for Male 1 was Marcus, it just seemed to fit and it does have a kind of magical quality to it that would suit a magician. There's a whole raft of nicknames to...

Petronilla Violet Wigglemole 'Petra'
You are now a fourth year and you are getting to know yourself a lot better.
Your favourite lesson is Transfiguration
But you cannot stand Defense against...

Your name is Petronilla Violet Wigglemole 'Petra' and you are a young witch who has been waiting all summer holidays to find out if you were accepted into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry....
What a great idea for a thread - it reminds me of Pollyanna's 'glad game' where everyone has to say something they're grateful for. We used to play it at the dinner table when I was little!

Right, I'm down to three possibly options - I'm definitely going with Reeve, as it's a family name so feels more 'mine' than picking any random surname, and I think it works best with a...
Hey Berries - I have a challenge for you!
Can you help me find three-syllable girls' names that hit the sweet spot between common and unusual - something that is well-known enough that most people...

I think there's always going to be someone with the same name combo, sorry! Especially such a lovely combo, it's bound to have been thought of before.
If you wanted it to be more unusual, maybe...

Thanks for your help!
I tried putting my maiden name into Google and it links very clearly to me, it's an unusual name, so I don't think that's an option after all. I think I'm going to go with...

Hi all, I know this comes up a lot on this forum but I can't think of a better place where name-nerds and writers converge!
I'm looking for a pen name, primarily because I'd like to keep my...

Cassandra or Camilla?
Either would get you to that pronounciation I reckon, but purely on aesthetics I'd go for Marja.
Can you think of names with a similar style to Astrid (i.e. short, not too girlie, uncommon) that...
Thought I'd do 6 girls too, just for fun...
Generally I think you should go for a longer first name with one-syllable surnames (ours is one syllable too) but I think Charles 'Danes' works okay, and you can always use Charley day-to-day even if...
Today mine would be:
I love Noemi and I've never heard it as 'no Emmy' before. I think if it's said fast without a gap in between then no-one will notice. If you both love it, then go for it!
My aunt is called Rosalind June but was born in March. My grandad just really liked the name June and they decided to go with it anyway.
I have another relative called June who was actually born on...
Stunning combo! Hope she brings you lots of happiness.
I actually like the fact that Reese and Langley are both so unisex, I think it would be more annoying if one name was very unisex and the other was obviously gendered, like Reese and Charlotte or...

I also think Zoe works well, it's right on the line between Arabella and Olivia IMO.

I don't get the reference either! I think the names are fine together, and I'm sure there are plenty of people like me who won't realise there is anything 'wrong' with the sibset.
Friends of ours considered Horatio for their little boy (now called Owen) because of the Norfolk connection as Horatio Nelson was born here; I'm not sure why they changed their minds but I do think...
@Amber - Emil is a great name and I agree that the Heskey connection has made it more useable, but for that reason I'd use the Emile spelling. Arguably, it looks more feminine (probably because it...
The surname-name thing used to be a big deal for the aristocracy (Fitzwilliam Darcy, for instance) so maybe that's why they hasn't taken off amongst the 'great unwashed' just yet? There's still a...
