    It was my great aunt's name and I think it's really pretty, and a vintage name that hasn't been snatched up yet in the vintage revival. I love it with simpler-sounding middles, like Marcella Dove,...

    Definitely not. And I never say "definitely not" unless a name would make a child's life objectively miserable: either with a spelling that is non-standard AND doesn't make sense phonetically (Syra,...

    I would probably use Lemon - at home anyway - if I ever had a Clementine. I really like the name but it's never made it past my hypothetical middle name list because I don't like Clem either. Lemmie...

    Marigold Oona <3 My childhood acting teacher had a daughter named Oona and I remember him saying they went with that spelling because they thought it looked so beautiful written out.

    Double barrel, alliteration, not too long, one of the names being quirky/unisex, no Ann(a), Lily, Mae. Let's try it - I don't think any of these will be "the one" but they might help you think of...

    In the U.S., at least, Anna has been slowly falling from its peak for several years. It is a true perennial and I don't think Frozen is a big threat. And yes, perfectly international. I vote yes!...

    Jessie Pearl is adorable! Sure, go for it. But the two names are so close that folks will assume that it's related to your name. You just have to go into it not caring what they think. I've mentioned...

    This was a couple years before I was born, and the "sexy" list tended to be the names of popular or beautiful women or teenagers on tv and in movies when I was a kid. Most were also very popular...

    Elizabelle is awesome. Are you pronouncing it E-LIZ-abelle or E-LIE-zabelle? I mean does the beginning sound like the beginning of Elizabeth with a short i (like the word "is") or like the name Eliza...

    Paloma has been on my list for as long as I've had a list. I love the options Poppy and Posy, but knowing the types of nicknames I give kids in my extended family, I'm pretty sure I would contract it...

    I think Carina is really pretty. It sounds fine with Noblee - I am pronouncing it like the word nobly, not like knob-lee. Honestly I see little difference between Noblee and popular names like Everly...

    I also thought of Pandora, though that's hard to carry off - so Pomona, maybe. And purple flower names: Lavender, Violet, Jasmine, Dahlia.

    People come out on both sides of reusing names ... in the end you have to do what feels right to you, and decide whether it would bring comfort or be too painful. No right answer. Maybe you could...

    Your signature says you are mom to daughters Stevie and a Weslynn. Were they supposed to be in the poll? Or just testing them out?

    In any case, I like Avonlea a lot, but please spell it like that...

    Many American records systems drop accents on letters, so her name would unfortunately often be written/recorded as Poe. Poesy is an English word, albeit a rare one, but still no different than...
