All of your options sound great, but I would choose Amelia Joy and Hyla Grace. This way, Amelia will have a less-common middle in case she ever wants to go by that in the future. Same thing for Hyla,...
I would've been Adam if I was a boy. Ended up as Tressa.
I'm kind of surprised no one has mentioned the name Poet. I know it's a little out there, but I find it striking.

I don't think it's bad at all. In fact like it a lot. If it still bothers you, what about Lena?
I'm a live-in nanny for 5 little girls, and the things they name their dolls always fascinate me. The most popular dolls in the house right now are twins named Googly and Glassy.
When i was 13, I was convinced that the best name for a boy was Tristan. Wow. My tastes have certainly changed in the past 10 years.
Girls names included Baylee, Brenna, Ella, and Anna. Fairly...

There was a girl I was in Girl Scouts with named Tana and her mother was also named Tana. They both went by Tana and things were always very confusing.
The mom ended up having b/g twins after the...
