My name's not common, but it is well-known with the standard spelling. And it's spelling is always predictably botched by baristas and others alike. I think it's kind of funny to see the variations...

In a word, yes. Though with the child it's only actually happened once. I work with infants and toddlers and in my experience it's the parents who encourage the bad behaviour by not actually...

How to name your baby properly.
For all the rebuttals, it's worth watching until the end
What about Audrey, Elaine, Ainsley, Ellen, or Elspeth?

You know, when she's a teenager, she might think it's pretty cool to have the option to be EVL. Imagine if that were the extent of her rebeliousness ;) Really though, I think you're over-thinking...

Clearly not everyone agrees with me, but I think naming your child after yourself is the ultimate expression of vanity.
First shortened form of Hawthorne that came to mind was Heath. I like Reid. I'm more inclined to a single syllable middle name in this case; two maybe.
If not Reid, maybe
I love the title of this thread! Of those on your list, these are the ones I like best:
I like Dixon James best. The esses don't bother me though

They work really well together. Nice job!

I quite like Artemis; actually I think it's a great name. And as far as the characteristics/traits and myth association, it could be so much worse for a girl growing up these days. I like that her...
Other names that come to mind based on your lists below. Do any of these appeal, or have the opposite effect?
Kate or Catherine
I'd lean more towards Leila or Lila Blythe. Thoughts on Lara?
Thoughts on any of these? Some are older, but less frequently used of late
What about Amelia June?
Do you mean you're trying to stay away from traditional names or popular ones? I ask because all of these have recently become very popular in the area where I live, though that might not be the...

I'd say either:
Madeline or Alexandra Jane
I think Cole Wilder could work. Other ideas:
Neither's my style, but if you love them (and you and your partner agree!), that's what matters. Best of luck!

You're not failing! You have many names that work really well here! I like Alexa, Natalie and Jocelyn, followed by Leah. Ella's also lovely, though I've heard it a few times in the past few months...
My two cents:
Nursing while TTc is fine, but best to wean before embarking on fertility options. You can't know how weaning might affect your menstrual cycle before doing so.
I suspect your...
Your description of her spirit makes me think of Raewyn. I couldn't tell you the origine, but I met a woman by this name in university, and you just described how I remember her perfectly.

I imagine Spike was inspired by Spike Lee or Jonze, but it does seem to put a lot of pressure on a kid. I don't know how wearable it is.
I'm kinda surprised to say that I think Lion is useable. I...

I think you should trust your gut, as your initial instincts seem good. It's a great name!
