I prefer Anne.
Although, I might prefer Ann in double-barrelled names (Lucy-Ann, etc.)
Shepherd Miles or Camille Joy
I'm sorry, that's no fun. I'm sure that in her mind she's being helpful.
Since it sounds like she's just visiting, I'd suggest smiling, thanking her for her advice, and kindly reminding her...
Do you plan to give any other children (girls perhaps?) names based on the name's meaning? If that's not really your naming style anyway, I wouldn't try to force it. Some cultures/times/people...
I'm going to against the grain and say that if you have no intention of ever calling him Evander, just name him Vander.
Other similar names (like Zander/Xander for Alexander) are becoming...
I like them all, but I think that Mila Rose is my favorite.

I vaguely remember doing this once before, but it's fun, so let's go again!

"Ruined" is a strong word, but yes, I do take into consideration pop culture when choosing favorite names. I'm more likely to be turned off if a particular name has one very strong, almost...
Don't let one person's negativity bring you down. There will always be someone who thinks your kids' name is ugly. Always. No name is universally liked.
As far as feeling "tired," I think...
I like both combinations very much. Would you want to save Clementine for a possible future child?
On another note, I'm usually all for thinking about "professionality" of names, but with the...
With a name as short as "Eric" I doubt he'd go by a nickname often. Even if he did, you could still spell it "Aer" if you wanted.
If you really want to begin his name with "Ae," I'd suggest the...
I also wanted to pipe up and encourage you not to mark Freya off your list just because your last name starts with F! My first and maiden names both start with L, and I actually really liked it.
I tend not to like names that start with Q, R, T, U, D, F, J, K, or N.
I especially don't like R, but I'm not sure if that's because I don't like the letter, the sound, or the names I know that...

If you're the type that likes more matchy twin names:
Jasper & Ruby
Jasper & Julia
Jasper & Josephine
If you don't like matchy:
Jasper & Clara
Jasper & Helena
My first and maiden names both started with "L" and I thought it was pretty cool. What I think is a bigger issue is names that rhyme or otherwise sound similar, like Harvey Harper or Arwen...

I'd agree with you on Eleanor and Eloise.
I would be more likely to assume a Tobias were Jewish rather than African-American.
I think the variety of responses you're getting indicates that Tobias is one of those names that has crossed a...
There are lots of Greek/Roman/mythological names that are great, but a little bit too out there for me to feel comfortable using.
Some that I think would be well received (but haven't lost their...
In my experience, more Americans seem to use Phillip, whereas more Brits/Europeans use Philip.
It's one of those names that looks misspelled to me no matter what the spelling. :/
I would assume they were British.
I really like Basil and would love to use it for a child, but most Americans mispronounce it like the herb.
I've noticed this when I use my iPad--it's so annoying that I've completely given up browsing NB on my tablet/phone and exclusively use my computer, which means that I'm not on as often, since I use...

Sometimes a cool namesake will help push a name from "like" to "love" territory, but I'd never give my child a name I didn't like on its own merits just because I liked the namesake.
