    I completely understand why you're not happy with the name - hard to say, difficult to spell, you had no input, etc. But does Cherissa have a name that she would like to go by? I just think that if...

    I would go with Lahna. Like you, I can just *not* get past what Lana spells backwards. But putting an "h" in there solves that problem, and - to me, anyway - the pronunciation is also made clearer. I...

    I hope you reconsider Phoebe. Besides her Biblical link, she's a moon goddess, a bird, used by both Shakespeare and Salinger, and - in the US, at least - still not in the top 100. (The name has held...

    Oh and I do love the suggestion of Rosalie, nicknamed Sally. It probably would get less questions than Sara nicknamed Sally, since the "sal" is clearly in Rosalie.

    Jamesetta is .... interesting.

    I'm surprised so many posters don't like James as a middle name. To me, it reads surname: if I saw a girl with that middle name, I would assume it was an honor name,...

    Um, Naomi IS Japanese. And it's also a well-used Hebrew name. It's truly international. In Japanese it's often translated as meaning "honest, straight" (nao) and "beautiful" (mi). My Japanese friend...

    I think they sound fine together, and if nothing else you have to go with Lila because its meaning complements Stella's so well: star and night! They're perfect. (I don't know if you did that on...

    I think Wilma is one of those names where, just based on sound alone, it feels like it *should* be popular (a Willow-meets-Emma hybrid), but instead it's languishing in the attic. The name is...
