    Couldn't pass this one up! ;) I'm partial to Trillium, the meaningful connection to Ontario being key in my liking the name. I think it's much prettier, and less cutesy than Tulip in the middle. Then...

    It sounds to me like your husband is reacting to this situation without factoring in the possibility that you're experiencing some postpartum. I'm not disregarding your feelings by saying that, but I...

    I feel your pain! :( It's ok to be hurt, I certainly was when my brother and sister in law used the not at all popular name I had been saving for a daughter since age 10! Like you, it was a name that...

    @shilo, I love how everyone in the comments was like "OMG love your style!" Or "MY daughter is named Tayleigh!" One lady was super proud of her uniquely named Guinness and Guylee, which I had to...
  5. I want to feel your pain but being from the south...

    I want to feel your pain but being from the south I think I'm numb to bad names...girl I grew up with named her daughters Charleigh and Nevaeh, and those are pretty standard-awful. Spelling the name...

    I've never been angry to the point of saying something. I fall into the "scornful/amazed/extremely amused" camp when it comes to terrible names. I think I would have had your reaction to little...

    Most of the people I know have *no* clue. I only know a handful of people who picked popular names, fully aware of their rank and not at all perturbed by them. I find myself turning super judgey...

    I only have one unrequited love and it's Grover. I think Grover is adorable but I couldn't do that to a little boy, especially with Sesame Street being such an established part of kid-dom. I've...

    I went to school with a girl named Preshuss. I always felt a little bad for her. A more recent instance was a darling little boy named Graedon (pronounced like gray dawn, not gray din). The spelling...

    I would guess Lay-lee if she's Belgian. If she was from Germany I might be inclined to say Lall-yeh. Don't quote me though, I've only visited Europe ;)

    I've always had a soft spot for the name Stormie/y. It's so much more appealing than sister name Rainie in my opinion. I think that's so rude that people would assume it was a burden you've had to...

    My husband is a genealogist in his spare time and he dug up the name Claris in a ship record. I thought that was quite pretty. I think the main thing to decide is whether you lost interest when a...

    Names get completely rejuvenated for me when I hear them on an actual baby. Maybe Claire is getting stale because you don't have anyone to attach it to (that you can see anyway). Would changing it up...

    Ellie was a really rude, pig of a girl I went to school with. By that I mean she looked exactly like a pig: small eyes, chubby, upturned nose, very pink complexion. And she used to push me off the...

    I too live in the South, and my in-laws are incredibly name-judgemental so I feel your pain! It's hard having less than mainstream taste when you're surrounded by people who bestowed very popular...

    I love it. I would use it in a heartbeat if my SO didn't dislike it so much. This and Grover are my two star crossed name loves :) Eugene, Gene, any form of it gets a thumbs up from me!

    I prefer Amaryllis myself for Christmas flowers, but how cute is Pins? I actually think it has frilly appeal. Names with strong t's usually do for me. I think Poinsettia, Beatrice, Harriet and...

    Have you considered Elnora? Much much rarer, has a great heroine namesake in the late Victorian novel "A Girl of the Limberlost". I love that name to death but have never heard it on anyone! If you...

    I'm with you, I know it's overused but it's just a gorgeous name. Isobel is my favourite variant. I'm not fond of the ella ending, tailored to Isabel I am on board. I guess it just comes down to...

    Alexandra is just as long and I bet they wouldn't have made fun of it! That's my alternate suggestion if you can't get past the taunting. But seriously, go with what you love because you're the one...

    Really not a fan of Nora either...or Vera. Or Araminta. Eloise sounds like a cutesied up version of Louise to me so it's out. I don't like Harriet or Edith or Agnes (especially not Agnes). Some fusty...

    In Texas there is an Emerson/Emersyn epidemic! I know TWELVE under the age of 5.
    Other names I hear all the time:
    Sophia
    Isabella
    Brielle
    Stella
    Anistyn (spelled that way)
    Noah
