They're both lovely, but Charlotte is advancing in popularity so quickly that I think Helena is likely to remain fresher-sounding for longer. Helena's on my own shortlist for a girl, that's how much...
Nancy, to me, is one of a semi-large class of names (Barbara, Deborah, and Susan, among others) that have *both* very appealing, vintage and historical connotations that would be excellent for a...
I love Ilse--it's the name of two of my favorite fictional characters, who incidentally both happen to be independent-minded bohemians in pieces set at the turn of the twentieth century--hot-tempered...
I voted for Eleanor Grace in the poll, but that was before I read your initial post where you said Gray was your maiden name--given the family and personal connection to you, that makes me like Gray...
I remember that in one of the earlier editions of Beyond J&J, Pam and Linda divided the section on unisex names into the following lists: 90% Boy, 75% Boy, 50/50, 75% Girl, and 90% Girl. My approach...

I like it--it's offbeat enough that people aren't going to hear and think, "really? two people renowned for their creativity came up with something that boring?" but also not so far away from current...
The last time I tried to make a post on the forums, it added the signature "Mum to Primrose Victoria and a baby on the way!" to my post. As I have neither a daughter named...
I quite like the names from Spring Awakening, all of whose characters are teenagers in late 19th/early 20th century Germany.

Atticus, Scout, Holden, Gulliver? Do these really count as "highfalutin and obscure" literary references? If it's anything you read in a high-school English class, I think it's a pretty good bet it...
