Was browsing through some of my old posts and came upon this reply from Lemon - wow, thanks for such a thorough, well thought response! It makes me want to put Daphne back at the top of my list, and...

Well, after reading all your comments and talking some more with my husband, I believe we have a winner: Rosalie! Simply because out of the three names, it's the one my husband likes the most. As for...

Yes, I've found that too. Strange, isn't it? I guess Scooby Doo is to blame. ;)

Amelia goes by her full name for now, but I could see that changing once she starts school. That will be up to her I think. :)
We do love Rose for Rosalie. I like Rosie too, but my husband...

I believe this is it, our final 3!
Please help us choose. All three sound good with our last name (1 syllable). Which one do you like best or least, and why? Do you have...
I ran into the "it doesn't sound serious enough" problem with Daphne before (still love that name though), and wanted to test the waters here to see if Rosalie was perceived the same....

Yup, that's basically the name of all the other little girls at my daughter's daycare. They all sound very similar. Her own name, Amelia, stands out - a little - by being longer, but today's popular...
Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I guess my main concern is whether or not Rosalie sounds too cutesy for a grown-up/professional woman. Maybe because the only Rosalies I know are all very young....
The name hunt continues!
What do you think of the name Rosalie? How do you picture her? How popular is it around where you live? Do you think it is forever tied to those vampire books/movies? ;)

Not being familiar with Jewish custom I'm afraid I can't help you re: Alice, however here are some suggestions you may like. Good luck!
Thanks, those are very pretty descriptions! So no one thinks it may sound too posh? That's also one of our concerns with Delphine (but at least, it sounds like those names will be taken more...
What is your opinion on the name Marguerite? How usable do you think it is? What is your favorite nickname option with it? What person do you picture with that name? Big sister is Amelia. Thanks!

Just read all your comments with my husband. Again, thanks so much for your help! I still like Daphne a lot, but we now wonder if she would be taken seriously with that name. :/
We also really...

Oh wow, thanks everyone, I didn't expect to get so many replies! I'll read them all to my husband tonight, see what he thinks and if it helps him make up his mind (me too!). At the moment he prefers...

All right, it seems like Laurel is out now. Daphne is still a strong contender, but now we've come across Delphine and are hesitating between the two. I like Delphine's French flair, I think it would...
You seem to be on the right track! I love Theodora nn Thea! Theodora Laurel maybe?
Some similar options that you may like:
Lori is cute :) I would probably use Laurie as a nickname for Laurel, if we end up picking that name. As for Lorraine, it's fine and definitely useable. I do prefer Lauren though.
As a first name, I'm not a fan, but when it comes to middles, I say go for it. :)
It may just be an accent thing. ;) LO-rel sounds right to me. I guess it's as opposed to the way they say it on the tv show Arrow (Laurel Lance).
Thank you for chiming in! :)
Thanks for all the replies! I'm really leaning towards Daphne at the moment, but I may still change my mind. I also really like Laurel, but it is my understanding that it can be pronounced 2...
Sorry, I love Cora! but not with your last name. How about:
My husband surprised me last night - he now likes Laurel! So what do you think about this name, and which name do you prefer, Daphne or Laurel (nn Laurie?)? Also, which one do you prefer with big...
The big name debate continues! Vivian is his suggestion (spelling is still up for debate as well), Miriam is mine. Which one do you prefer, and why? Big sister is Amelia. Thank you so much for your...
Thanks everyone! Your help is really appreciated and we'd love to hear more comments/opinions. Two of these we're suggested by my husband and the other two by me - at least our styles are quite...
Thanks for your nice comments and suggestion! I did actually consider Laurel at some point, but my husband ruled it out. :(
