Sienna: I've been crushing on this name since I saw a birthday banner on Pinterest for the cutest little Sienna. (http://www.karaspartyideas.com/2012/12/elegant-1st-birthday-party.html -- I sincerely...
How about Phae? Phaedra is fairly popular on NB and there has been some buzz around Faye lately, so I think it works. I had a student a few years ago whose middle name was Phae.
I'm so glad you decided on Wayland! It's such a great name!
"Buddy" made me think of a man I know whose first initial is W and he goes by "Dub". It's informal and affectionate like Bubba or...
I voted for Seraphina since you love it so much, but also because it's pretty sound/look is matched with a totally boss meaning. ( :
Anna Sofia and Alice Rosemarie or Iris Vienne are my favorites!
I know that I took the liberty of switching up Rosemary, but I think Rosemarie fits since you chose the less common spelling for...
I find Alexandra a bit boring considering how many people I know with similar, but more exciting versions: I had a coworker named Alexandria-- I think it's very beautiful and still accessible. I also...

As someone interested in adoption, may I ask about your choice to give your biological children only 2 names each and your adoptive babies 3 names each? Are these from their birth parents?

I like Leo Kirill, but I thought of Leo Cecil, Leo Cyrus, Leo Cygnus, and Leo Crispin. I think these are slightly adventurous (considering current trends) with nice history to them. Good luck!
Estelle/a (~Great Expectations)
Helen (of Troy)
Miranda (The Tempest)
Odette (Swan Lake)
Elise (Für Elise) - maybe too close to Alice
Bianca (Taming of the...
Thank you for the response, Linda! I'm grateful for your attention to diversity!
I'm not sure how to say this, but here goes... can we please feature pictures of non-white babies/children? Scrolling down the blog home page, only 1 of nearly 20 infants pictured is a baby of color....
Can I just endorse Daphne Mimosa Jean? It's perfection!

I prefer a different variation:
Elira - Elora
Alienor - Elinor
Nimue - Although on prinicple, I should like this name, I just don't. Neomi or Nimae
Aliena - alien & pronunciation just don't work...

I voted for Layla/Leila. I've preferred the Leila spelling for a long time-- it fits better in my non-anglo community. Plus some friends of mine just named their beautiful daughter Leila Ann!
Funny you should mention that it needs a nn, chrisco. I know a Tatiana in her 20s who goes by Tia.
I've liked Dell for a long time and think Arendelle is kind of pretty. I don't think I'd use it as a first name anytime soon, but I don't think it's a bad idea at all!
I like Cecily best, but that comes from liking Cecil for a boy!
I like Sienna! How about Sisi, Sie/Sea (rhyming with Leah), Enna, Nan, or Essie as a short and sweet nickname?
Oh, Tristan & Lysander nn Sasha would be a dreamy twin set.
I'm just really glad they don't have overly matching names like Tristan & Christian or Tristan & Trevor.

Eilidh Briar (AY-lee) - pretty
Agnes Amelia - not usually a fan of alliteration, but this is a very pretty combo
Imogen Lettice (luh-TEESE) - <3 Imogen, not so much Lettice, sorry. Maybe Imogen...
Some -ine names that are less common to go with Lydia...
Apolline or Opaline*
My first thought was Nelson. Nella or other Helen variations could be used for a girl.
Of the suggestions from Neil's NB page, I like Neal, Neils, Nels, Nigel, Niles, and Nils. I know a guy in his...
I voted for Violet Beatrice Loveday, but if I could vote a second time it would be for Violet Henrietta Beatrix. I love both of these so much!
