One, a kindergartener.
A coworker has said she's considering Olive, but her daughter won't be born until March.

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 like all three, but I think Amara May is my favorite. Very sweet.
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.
Bonnie Adelaide is wonderful. Congratulations!
Your sibset really makes me smile. Bonnie is my top girl name, and I also have a son named Noah. You have great taste! :D
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,...
I'll join the American chorus : I say EYE-zick.

My son has a "no-nickname" name and is called by the name on his birth certificate. My stepdaughter mostly uses her name, but we occasionally call her by her first initial. My stepson goes...
I love Annora, while Evangeline is one of my least favorite names. It's an easy choice for me!
Annora is so lovely and elegant.

My stock Rose combo is Rose Millicent, nn Romilly.
It's great! :) I really like it, both on its own and as part of the sibset.
Malcolm! It's one of my favorite names, and I especially like it with James.

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."
Meaning > flow for me, so I'd go with Callen Lane, but only you can decide if the flow issue will bother you too much.
Emphasis on the FIL, just as in Philip. There's no other pronunciation, as far as I'm concerned.
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.
Edna Genevieve was my first thought, but I'll also suggest Edna Beatrix, Edna Jacqueline,...

Frances Elizabeth June (gran, mom, aunt)
Peter Edward Alexander (brother, g-grandpa, and my mom again)

John and Paul (and their feminine variations)
Linda. Even a name ending in -lind is a no go.

I feel bad about my comment because I'm usually quick to champion Miriam. I think it's gorgeous, and I love its history. I think my issue here is simply the contrast; when looking at the 8 names...

Least favorite: Miriam. I love it, but it feels more solemn and religious than any other name here.
Replace with: Isidora.
Least favorite: Edwin. It feels weak and nerdy. Edwin is probably...
They're way too matchy for me, more because they're both botanical names and both colors than because of the near-anagram.
I'd rather be Olive. I do like Violet, but I think spunky, curious...
