    Not to get all faux-poetic, but when I hear the name I think of silver, light, tall reedy plants. It's a very pretty name. I haven't heard of the cartoon, so can't comment there.

    Verity is my favorite name, but I agree with the others. Everly fits with Reese better (and I think Everly is a lovely name on its own with better nickname options.) Plus, Everly Webster flows really...

    It's just the last syllables that rhyme? Not like Easton Beaston, but more like Easton Beeman or something? I don't think it's that bad at all. Sometimes you just get annoyed by things after you've...

    Yeah, some babies hate swaddling. Mine loved it, and had to be swaddled right up until four months when he started rolling over. I liked the Halo swaddle sack, because his hips and legs were free...

    I could name girls for days! :)
    A few of my favorites, starting with the more guilty pleasure-ish for me. I tend to like really soft-sounding names, but not frilly.
