    I think it is a very feminine and elegant name. I would pronounce it el-ee-ah-nuh. Spelling either Eliana or Elliana.
    It sounds like a European name to me, that likely has a history. I do not think...

    I had zero intentions of co-sleeping when I was pregnant and actually thought it was silly and 'granola' and would be an unnecessary strain on the marriage relationship.

    Ha, well that changed in a...

    Well, It's nice to see a vote for Ottavia too :) I think it must be unfamiliar to many people, which is why Octavia seems preferred.
    Glad to know that people don't think the initials are a big...

    I like your suggestion of Octavia Pearl! I really like the symbol of the pearl being "feminine wisdom". Especially since my first daughter has the ancient middle name Medea,...

    I like Eden.

    I think the biblical association gives the name history and weight, but I don't actually think of it as a 'religious' name. It's a fun name, but not flimsy. While it's not super...

    Isadora is a great name (I'm biased though!).

    I think it is probably fine to use, as long as you mention it to Isabella's parents first. Let them know in advance that you have loved the name...

    Cordelia is a prettier name IMO. Cornelia just looks/sounds odd to me. Probably because of the 'corn'.

    Hi Berries,

    Octavia is still in the running as one of our names for our Spring baby. A few people here have suggested Ottavia as well, which I like too. Which do you prefer, Octavia or Ottavia?

    Nora Grace sounds so lovely, however it is a most popular middle name now. That's neither good nor bad, just the way it is. Still a lovely and classic name.

    I have to agree...I would think the parents did not know how to spell the name and made up a spelling. I vote for traditional here too.
