I much prefer Lila.
I would assume Mina rhymed with Tina and Gina. I understand wanting to keep the family spelling, but I also think it will be irritating for her to go through life with all the mispronunciations.
I don't think Ivy makes any sense as a nickname for Vivian, only Viv or Vivi.
Ivy is perfectly lovely as a stand-alone name, and I don't see why it wouldn't age well. I vastly prefer it to...
I love Indra, and maybe love Indira a bit more.
Indra/Indira Maeve is amazing!

I just find Julian so girly. Sorry.

An interesting choice. (Okay, I don't like it.)

I do think it comes across as a bit pretentious, to be honest.
It also strikes me as one of those French names that sounds lovely in a French accent, but not so much in an American one.
I don't like Vivian, or Vivienne. I think it's hard-sounding. Most don't agree, though!
I don't really love Jasmine, tbh. It's one of those 'looks prettier than it sounds' names. And always gets nicknamed to Jaz, which is awful.
It's awesome! Don't change it!
There are millions of names out there that are more difficult to pronounce, and I'm shocked that people are struggling with Ondine. But they'll get there, and it...

I personally know the following under-5s:
Lila, Layla, Lola, Lilla, Ella, Lilly, Mara, Mala, Milla, Mira
That's just off the top of my head.
If I was naming a baby girl in 2014, I would...
Nope. All boy.

In Australia, Darren is dated in a very unattractive way. I can't like it at all, sorry.
Not sure what to suggest, but I'd dig my heels in over Nicole too. It's blech.
Don't like Hazel at all.
Yes, it is only masculine to me.
I've only ever heard it pronounced with a schwa sound (neutral vowel sound), closest to the 'Uh-livia' pronunciation as you've written it.
A long 'Oh' sound, as in the word 'over', would sound...
I don't even like it much for a boy...it's not nice for a girl at all. Dami or Damiana would be okay.
I voted for Ruby Celeste. I don't think Ruby Greene is an issue at all, and it goes with your other kids' names MUCH better than Penelope.
(And I don't like the names Penelope or Penny at all, I...
Mirabel/le is divine, and perfect with Adeline!
I marginally prefer Mirabel, but either is lovely.
I'm in Australia, but I can't imagine anyone saying anything but Ee-va here. (Unless they were specifically told otherwise.)
I also prefer Caia!
I don't like Mara with Anna, not sure why. And I find Mara a bit drab.

I do think 'stripper' names are a real perception - . e.g Misty, Krystle, Cherry, Honey - even though they shouldn't be. (As in, I don't know why people have to use this horrible phrase.)
I just think of 'spruce up'. I don't like it at all, sorry.
Aspen is quite lovely.
