DH and I have finally narrowed it down to two girl names for our new LO due in Feb: Mary or Annabelle. I love them both for different reasons.
Mary is classic and feels vintage to me since it...
I think my top 3 from your list are:
Graham & Lydia
Graham & Alice
Graham & Vivian
That being said I hear Vivian (and Vivienne) & Alice a pretty good bit around Nameberry so I'm sure how...
Thanks for the feedback everyone! Keep the thoughts coming...
the more I say it the more it feels like a great alternative to the super classics. Like its in the same family as Elizabeth, but not...
I know a girl named Sutton so it seems like a fine name to me. Its not my personal style, but I think it definitely meets the criteria you're looking for.
I do pronounce it very similar to Amelia. Instead of ah-meal-ya I say em-eel-ya.
But I assume that you could try to encourage another pronunciation if you wanted to.
Hubby and I are still on the hunt for an ideal girl name for our little gummy bear (we don't know the sex yet). We've considered several "vintage classics" with spunky nicknames, but nothing has felt...
That is a good point, but we use family names as middle names. There are a few family surnames that I've been eyeing that I may run by hubby though because I do like the idea of something a bit more...
Yay! I'm always happy to see inspiration strike! We have friends from Mexico City that use Isa as a nickname for their daughter Isabella, so it seems kinda taken to me if that makes any sense. But I...
Thanks for the positive feedback ladies! It seems like the perfect compromise. DH wants something that sounds familiar to most everyone and doesn't feel too "out there", while I love names with a...
I've been trying to sell my husband on Louisa since we were pregnant with DS (who is now 3.5), but he was firmly against it. Now that we are pregnant again we have restarted the impossible girl name...
I love William! It's in our top 2 for a boy. We are considering William August and calling him Whit.
Our other boy name is Charles, but I also love Nathaniel, Thomas, and Edward!
DH and I are making our top names list for baby #2 and I can't make up my mind how I feel about his current favorite: August. Augustus is a family name on his side, and while I do like August I can't...

I'm a big fan of antique names! My favorites:
Agatha (love love love agatha!)
I think Nella is adorable! I think the -a at the end instead of the -ie makes it a nickname that doesn't sound like it only belongs on a little girl. And its even cuter that big sister picked it out.
I love so many of the names on your list!
My favorites with your son's name:
Amelia & Sebastien
Emeline & Sebastien
Evangeline & Sebastien
Madeleine & Sebastien
If you are open to a...
I think its really cute actually. And the fact that its a family name just makes it better. I'm from a region where family names are considered gender neutral, so I wouldn't worry about it at all. If...
My name is Merideth (same as Meredith, I take no responsibility for the spelling) and, while I have met quite a few other girl Meredith's over the course of my lifetime, I've never met a male with...

I really think they are both cute, but I agree with a lot of the PPs that I see Remy as a french boy name. I guess its due in large part because my son loves the Disney movie Ratatouille and Remy is...
Thanks so much for the great feedback everyone! I love hearing all the love for Mary. Since it is so short, I love the idea of putting a longer name in the middle spot.
I've been crushing a bit...

Some less common options:
I don't think its TOO dated, but it definitely seems 80s to me. There is a little girl in my son's preschool class named Courtney (which I think is a similar era to Heather), and when I hear it I...

I think its totally acceptable. I know girls named Mary Charles, Ann Rob, and Carlton (after grandfather Carl). I think, depending on the name, you could even use it in the first spot. I think...
I think Mary Coraline as a double name is just adorable. I also love the suggestion of Moira.
I've never given Mary too much thought...its always seemed like just a vessel to get to a more expressive middle name (Mary Catherine, Mary Grace, Mary Elizabeth, Mary Frances, Mary + mom's maiden...
Thanks so much for the input everybody! Keep the ideas coming. I am perfectly fine with names that are a stretch. The most important thing to me is that we love both names.
My great grandmother's...
