    Charlotte Eden Pearl gets my vote! I prefer shorter names when contending with double middle names. Charlotte Eden Pearl is lovely, and I think it's a sweet way to honor someone born in June.

    Arabella -- I like it in theory, but it's just way too fanciful for real life.
    Aurelia -- I think this is pretty on paper and in my head, but something about the "rail" sound in it makes me boot it...

    Family names definitely trump flow for me. The mix of soft and hard sounds in Julian Merritt is actually pleasing. Plus, you're hardly ever going to hear the full name, you'll usually just hear/say...

    If there were other names on the list, I would probably lean more towards using those instead. On the other hand, if Logan is your all-time favorite name that you can't imagine not using, then I...

    I really don't like Priscilla. All I hear is "prissy". Like if I was going to write a book with a female villain antagonist, I would name her Priscilla. :/

    I've always called my grandparents - no matter if their maternal, paternal, great, or even in-laws - Grandma and Grandpa. That is how my husband grew up calling his grandparents too.

    If I was a boy, I would have been Zachary Wade. My father wanted me to be Zacchaeus, but my mom absolutely refused. Zachariah was up in the air too. Either way, I would have been Zach. I feel like I...

    I would keep the names that you both love - even if you independently love them - because they clearly mean a lot to each of you. And I know your husband is opposed to a second middle, but I would...

    I would pronounce it muh-LAY-nuh. I love this name, and all the Elena-type names, but I can't seem to get my head around all the different ways to say them!

    Of your middles, I like Milena...

    Can I live with Elaina?

    So, a day after ringing in the New Year and cheers-ing family to a bright and happy 2015, we found out that we are pregnant! (Don't worry, we toasted with sparkling grape juice because that's how we...
