    If I heard that someone had two children, Mila and Elliot, I'd definitely assume Elliot was a boy. I generally assume anyone named Elliot to be a boy anyway, but since Mila is clearly feminine,...

    I agree that it's too tied to Jennifer Aniston - it definitely looks like a tribute to her. I would expect Annie to be the nickname, though, rather than Ann.

    I don't see any problem with it, no. I agree that it's a bit of a tricky surname, but Margo doesn't make it worse.

    I've never thought about it, but I'm liking it. Kip is a snappy nickname, and Kipling feels complete. It's lively but mature. I think of it as a surname and place name.

    I'm assuming you're...

    Welcome!

    It would help to know either the surname or some of its characteristics - what does it start and end with; what sounds are prominent; how many syllables; etc.

    I absolutely love...

    I see its appeal, but I'd keep it as a nickname - it's a word name but it's SUCH a word name, you know? It could refer to a county fair, to fairness in terms of justice, to fairness in terms of...

    I don't know how it would be received in Australia (I live in Canada) but I've met one girl named Raphaëlle. I initially didn't know about the "elle" spelling so I first thought that someone had just...

    This is about how I feel about it. jor-jee-ah-na is too fussy for me, so I'd say it about like jor-jyah-na, with about 3.25 syllables. I never use it in real life, but I could see pronouncing the...

    It feels really surname-y to me - I can't see it as a first name for a boy or a girl. I'd use Gwendolen or Gwendolyn to get to the nickname Windy, myself.

    Ugh, I can't un-see the menses similarity. I first thought it was a variation on Mackenzie. I'm somehow not liking that it rhymes with "frenzy" but probably a lot of people wouldn't mind that. I...

    This. I've seen enough variations on Lily's spelling that Lilly doesn't look weird to me, but most of the time, word names with spelling variations look misspelled to me (Saige, for example).

    I love Serena - it's a soft but strong, feminine but not too frilly. I think it'd be well-known and easy to wear, but still I've met very few people named Serena. It sounds like it fits well in your...

    If the first child's middle names are really important to you in some way, I do think it would be nice if the second child's are, too. That said, there's absolutely no reason why you can't just use...

    Avy ____ Hall... I think Cecilia would fit the best. Avy Cecilia Hall? I'm liking a long middle name with the shorter first and last names.

    Some others (sorry for repeats):

    Avy Mariska Hall...

    It's a lovely song. I had never heard it before but just looked it up! Honestly I do think a lot of people would make the "capri pants" connection (I don't know the cigarette connection so I didn't...

    I love Iris, on its own and with your surname, but it does sound too similar to Isaac to me, so my second choice would be Maris. Mavis sounds old ladyish to me and stylistically really far off from...

    Repeating letters doesn't trouble me until either a) the names start to sound too similar to each other; b) spelling gets compromised to fit the pattern (Jinger Duggar is the best/worst example of...

    The good news: Evangeline Goettl (which I've never known how to pronounce, so thank you!) sounds great!

    I agree that Jessica (while a lovely name in its own right) is really dated - it would be like naming an 80s or 90s baby, like, Linda or Nancy (a Mom Name) to kids now.

    Thea's so lovely! A shame...
