    I think Clyde would be a very unusual choice, but not at all a bad one! It goes in the similar vein as names like Clark. I wouldn't not be surprised if people ask if it is a family name, as it is...

    One theme I notice in your other three boys' names is that they all have a "k" sound in them, although this is achieved with different letters. So I think it would be really cool for the fourth name...

    I think Kason is a very modern choice and very-on trend. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but that's why there are thousands of names in the world for us all to choose from. A little Kason would be...

    What a lovely tribute to your grandmother!

    My first thought was to use Isabeau. Now, here's the explanation of why I think this is a good choice: Although this form of Isabel is usually given to...

    I think Mabel and Marshall work fine together. Yeah, they're similar, but the "ay" versus "ar" vowel sound and the "b" versus the "sh" sound makes them different enough. If it helps, I know a family...

    I don't think it's usable as a first name. For his whole life he would get raised eyebrows and "Like the Jungle Book?" commentary. No reason you couldn't put it in the middle name spot though---names...

    I think Memphis is a fine name on its own, but it's not really the style of your other two children's names. Memphis very clearly reads as a "place name" to me (much like naming your kind Boston,...

    I don't think having a common first name is a big deal. It can be a hassle, though if you have a really common first-middle-last combo, because you will get confused by other people with the same...

    I love Nicholas! It's a great name. A second choice would be Nikolas, which reads as an international variation to me. I think you should choose the spelling that is predominant where you live....

    If you would choose the name for its own sake no matter what month your baby was born in, then it's a good choice for a name. They should ask themselves, if their little girl was born premature and...

    Like some others I thought Leifur was the easiest based on spelling, but I actually got it wrong when you revealed the correct pronunciation. Kjartan I pronounced correctly by sight and if I could...

    I am unfamiliar with this name and thought it was just a misspelling of the boys' name Simon. I think it's really unlikely you'll ever get the intended Sih-MEEN pronunciation unless the person...

    Anything that ends in -nette could get you to Nettie as a nickname (and I do think Nettie makes a better nickname than a full name).

    Out of curiosity, what are the seven names from which you got Margot Sophie Anneliese?

    I am interested to see your methodology because I'm stumped at ways to mash up these names.

    I can see it working better in a book (where you can read it and give your own pronunciation) than in real life. In fact, your own real-life experience has taught you that people don't hear or...

    Alair looks made-up to me (even if it's not actually a new invention). I would prefer Adair or Blair.

    I think a 1- or 2-syllable boy's name would sound great with big sisters Maeve and Rose. If you start verging into 3+ syllables territory, it might feel like you gave your son "more name" than you...

    I do not think that Icarus is usable as a first name because the story of Icarus has only negative connotations. (The sound of Icarus, as you said, is not an insurmountable problem.)

    The most popular spelling in the U.S. is Brayden (#48 in 2013). The second most common is much less popular, Braden (#336). I would use one of these two spellings, and I think they are easy to...
