Oh, this should be fun.
Maeve: 8/10. Spunky, lovely, on-trend Irish revival that probably won't stay unusual for long.
Keira: 3/10. Nice sound, but very dated.
Gwen: 5/10. Gwen is a familiar...
I absolutely love Sage Augustus and River Gabriel.
I love the idea of giving your daughter the first name Winter to honor her grandmother.

I don't think anyone's mentioned:
Roma or Romy
I would never think "dog." Roscoe is one of my all-time favorite boys names. It hits that perfect sweet spot between unusual and familiar.

Frankly, Dylan on a girl is awful regardless of her parents' genders -- it's a boy's name, and a boy's name only. Boy's names on girls are, without exception, tacky, trendy, instantly dated, and...
I really like this idea! Arliss seems like a natural successor to Arlo.

Imagining that none of these names are popular...I love most of them. Ha!
Sophia: My sister's name is Sophie, and I absolutely adore it. I would love to use Sophia to honor her, but alas, it's way...

I have two top girls' names that cancel each other out: Eloise Lily and Iris Cordelia. If I used Iris first, the sibset would be:

I love Arden! It's a name that definitely doesn't doesn't get enough love. Arden and Lucia are a beautiful pair.
Romy or Roma Hudson
This summer I'm babysitting a very feisty and completely wonderful 3-year old who lives with her artsy upper-class family in a famously chic and gentrified New York neighborhood. I remain drop-jawed...

I think this is one of the few instances where I prefer an alternative to the original spelling. Willamina is lovely.
Limiting myself to a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 10...
A: Alice, Anna, Anastasia, Antigone, Augusta (of course), Aster, Arabella, Aurelia
B: Belle, Bonnie, Belphoebe, Bridget, Briony,...
This isn't a conservative dealbreaker; it's a racist dealbreaker. The whole "Is X a Black name?!" thing is just another kind of white flight.
These are all really common names, so I wouldn't worry about the villain associations. That said, there are definitely names I love the sound of that I wouldn't use because their sole association is...

I also once had a rabbi tell me that "LEE-uh" is a goy butchering of a Hebrew name...not sure I agree with him, but it's something you might want to consider.

Nice try. My parents are European Jews. Within their communities, Leah is pronounced LAY-uh. It's a more unusual pronunciation, but not incorrect. Educate yourself.

YES YES I DO. My name is Leah, pronounced LAY-uh. I'd say it's pronounced correctly about 2% of the time. This has been a lifelong frustration and I have frequently contemplated changing the...

You seem to like stylish, feminine names with French flair.
Valentina: No name is totally nickname-proof, and Valentina lends itself more easily to nicknames than most. If this is something you...

I appreciate your interest in unique names -- you've definitely come to the right place! I understand why you like Tsunami: it's a striking, distinctive name with a strong meaning. However, I agree...
