    IMO, they fit in fine with the Episode IV-VI names. Luke, Leia, Ben, Han, Owen, Lando, Wedge...Finn, Rey, Poe, and Kylo actually work really well, I think, as their descendants. They do have a...

    I would still use Cecilia. Your "sister's sister-in-law" is only one step above "random stranger" to me. There's no reason why her choice should make using your favorite name impossible.

    I pronounce it SY-ra, and I really like it.

    It's a wonderful name, but it's not one I would consider if I had Cy/Sy in mind for a boy, even if I favored a different pronunciation.

    It wouldn't bother me pick a name with a different number of syllables than her sisters' names, but since it bothers you, I think you should stick with Hope Corinne. It's meaningful, has nice flow,...

    The closest I can come to picking a favorite song is my favorite Christmas carol, "Oh, Holy Night." I could use Ariadne Layla. Together, they mean "most holy night."

    I love Douglas. I do see it as a mid-century name, but that's actually part of its appeal for me. It's not a name everyone will love (if there is such a name), but think it has the potential to make...

    Middle names don't serve much purpose in a story, if any, so I don't think they're that important. That said, there's nothing wrong with figuring out your characters' middle names as part of your...

    That's my problem, too. Even though I know Edna isn't a feminization, I'm still seeing Ed and Joseph.

    They're way too matchy for me, more because they're both botanical names and both colors than because of the near-anagram.
