    I majored in Spanish in college, lived in Spain and had an extended stay in Central America, but my first language is English so not sure if this helps. I don't think Una would be too odd. My name is...

    I have a niece named Lulu ... she's still a baby, but her mom has only heard one negative comment to her face. Lulu sounds "younger" than Lula, so I'm inclined to say you'd be OK. There are tons of...

    It's not my style but I think it's very wearable. It reminds me of those casual, nickname-y names that were popular in the 70s: think Jamie, Jodie, Stacy, Keri, etc. It would still fit in with the...

    So, Kaylee (etc) were fairly popular in the Irish dance community I grew up in, and the parents always chose it because we actually used the word ceilidh for our celebrations! I know the modern...

    I prefer the Arielle spelling too, and think you're likely to get the right pronunciation with it. With this French spelling I might give a slight emphasis to the last syllable -r e L, if you will -...

    Annaleigh is pretty. I like Coralie but maybe you could spell it Coraleigh. Bayleigh, Ryleigh and Hadleigh aren't my style but maybe they're yours. If you just want the "lee" sound but it doesn't...

    I do love Anne! A few things to think about:

    - Some of it depends on your last name. I'm inserting asterisks in case any of these are the real name. Names with two syllables, where the syllable...

    I might have missed it, but would you consider the Carys spelling? It is a traditional spelling and people might get it right more easily. I could see Cerys getting pronounced as SER-iss but I think...

    I wouldn't have any negative feelings about parents who would use this name or a girl who would carry it. Since I haven't heard it as a name until the past few years and it's really on the radar...

    I was reading this thinking how nice Aili is, and how much more accessible than Ailis, which I've loved for a while but which would be hard to wear in the US. So I am delighted that you went with...

    Oops! I would have said it like Ada. Maybe because I read that book too.

    If it's pronounced AH-da, it wouldn't sound exactly like the a in August or addition for me. But that's more of an accent...

    I think they're really close, but I also wouldn't think you were narcissistic. I like just plain Caroline, but you probably do want a nickname up your sleeve in case Carrie or Care happens, since...

    Alice is one of those names that is usually just spelled one way, so this seems like a future hassle even though Allis and Alys look pretty. With names like Katherine/Catherine or even Zoe/Zoey,...

    It goes together perfectly, no clashing at all. It's funny, I'd call Ada vintage, but I'd call Penelope and Leonor more classic/international. Whatever you call the style, it works. I've always...

    I agree with the others. If she has no nickname, people often feel the need to shorten anything that's 3+ syllables, and Maggie or Mag will happen. If you tell people it's Nola for short, they'll...
