If he said yes to Arianna and Camilla...
Milena, or just Mila (i love Mila by itself!)
Melania (i once met a set of twins named Natalia and Melania)

Nope. I'm Ashkenazi Jewish, so I don't expect anyone to be named after me til I'm dead. I like my name though, so i won't mind if my kids/grandkids/great grandkids want to use it. I just hope that...
Ok, I asked a few Israeli friends today and they say they do know a couple of people there named Norah - there's a trend for names that are cognate in Hebrew and English (just by sound, meanings have...
Beyond Sarah, the Hebrew name Malka is very common - and it means queen. Literally queen. Melech (king) is less common, but definitely in use. So i can't say i care about the meaning in this case....
I'm surprised to hear that Israelis use the word Norah as a name, in modern Hebrew it more or less means "terrible"! It's one of those old words that fits into a lot of different phrases and...

It's a good combo but I'm not a fan of Love even in the middle - it's definitely too cutesy for me.
I LOVE that name. It's beautiful.
My girls both have 4 syllable first names and a 3 syllable last name (although they both go by 2 syllable nicknames most of the time). I don't think it's a problem as long as the names sound decent...
Ack, no. Give it to the dog, or the car or something.

Jesse (I love the Hebrew Yishai)
I love Batsheva (pron baht-SHEH-vah): it's a pretty common name in Jewish communities. But Bathsheba is one of those horrible transliterations that just doesn't work on real people.
I love it, one of my favorite Catherine variations.
I recognize it from a book i read, Our Only May Amelia by Jennifer Holm (the main characters are all Finnish), and I assumed the right pronunciation. I think you'd end up having to correct people...

I love Gwyneth, also Gwenllian. Gwendoline just doesn't look right to me.
I love Giselle! But otherwise...
Darcy (also a ballet name in a way, after a few famous ballerinas)
Marion please. It's so elegant. I really don't get the appeal of Sloane at all, especially not on a girl.

I like it. The one Tristan i ever met was really hot and definitely masculine - plus i think of Tristan the knight from King Arthur, who's one of the few Arthurian characters attested in historical...

I vote Liam, i love it and think it would be better with a one-syllable last name.
In terms of its use in Israel, people have adopted it as the Hebrew words Li-am (lee-AHM), which means "I have...
Yes to all your questions - Blythe is gorgeous on it's own, it's lovely as a sister to Clementine, and i do think it fits in with your other choices. It has a romantic yet practical feel to it.

I see the appeal of Evan on a girl but i do think it's masculine and would prefer for it to stay that way. But didn't she have a first and/or middle name to work with?
