I think even Finnegan Quinn is too much rhyme, even ignoring the nickname potential.
While I love Mina, Wilhelmina just doesn't have any appeal to me - just seems clunky and not in that cool way that names like Penelope, Matilda and Gwendolyn are (to me). Cecelia seems a little too...

Miriam is the only one I don't like for you, and it's just because the M and cadence are shared with Madelyn. I think it would get confusing.
I voted for Callista because it is a beautiful,...
I like Mikayla because I say mih more than muh when I say the name. It is a pretty name, but all these questions about spelling drive me away from it. It might not bother you (and that's good!) but...

I think two word names in a row, especially two virtue names, is too much. I would consider your pattern met by using Merit as the first name (which I love btw). I didn't realize Ruth was a word...
it's an old show and wasn't on tv that long. It's just the only time I've seen Brighton/Bright used as a name and I really loved it.

I voted for Ivy Abigail, I just love this sweetheart combo. Xander and Ivy both have that unusual letter too, which is fun.
I like Annika too but dislike the spelling with one n. I like the...
I voted Allegra but had a hard time choosing between that and Cosima.

I read it as O-leev-ah because that is a surname I'm familiar with. I don't think changing the spelling will avoid any confusion and may just add to it. Is there a special significance to Oliva...
It sounds like Rose is a keeper but if not, I suggest Anastasia [Birthstone] as it is a beautiful name. I also noticed Annika in your signature, is Annika Rose an option? Or Roseanna [Birthstone]?...
ooh, Grace Odilia Iris really sticks out to me. Really striking.
Grace Johanna Lily keeps the Lily but avoids the Odilia Lily flow. While I prefer Odilia for her uniqueness and spunk, Johanna...
I love the name Brighton and nn Bright. My exposure to it was on the tv show Everwood, where Chris Pratt played a character named Bright. I guess I hesitate on whether it's usable for real life...

I like Ivy Amelia and Sage Alice for a girl; Emmett or Levi for a boy
Adeline is so sweet but like you, I would fear that she would be lumped in with all the Addies and Maddies. I didn't notice the repeated -el with Gabriel but now that you pointed it out, it's all I...
I really, really wanted to name my youngest daughter Phoebe but I couldn't get DH on board. She would have been Phoebe Abigail. I also like
Since the Zel of Zelma is present in Hazel, maybe you could be a little creative: Hazel Mary for example gets Zelma.
I would like to plug, though, that using the name just as it is, regardless of...

I think it is more important to find a name you love as much as Elsa than to find one that sounds best with it. As you say, people are only in a "sibset" for a small portion of their lives. And it...

I like the sound and meaning of these, even for first names:
Isra (I wonder if the popularity of Isla would make pronunciation for this one trickier than expected)
Ruethai (and Rue is an...

Juliette nn Jet is awesome with the older children. Although Josephine should appeal to me given the other names I like, it just doesn't. And I hear Josie and Joey everywhere with my kids (ages 6...

I think it would be weird to use a place name with the -polis suffix, especially since there are so many ways to get to Anna.
I think it is fine, as long as the last name doesn't end in the -ie sound. Also having a different number of syllables helps. So Peter Parker is too rhymey to me, Peter Partridge is better and...
I don't like Georgia with Caroline, it seems too geographical. How about Elizabeth? Do you have any family names for a girl?

I love the idea of any Gwen name with Nora, I think they enhance each other. As far as Declan goes, even though it's more popular and therefore maybe more expected, if it's a name you both love then...
It is lovely. I don't think I'd be bold enough (or presume my daughter to be bold enough) to use Edelweiss. If it were me, I would name her Ada Louise or Ada Louisa and call her Edelweiss at home...
