    I'm in my 30's and it's not really my style but I don't hate it. I would consider it a trendy surname style and would match it with names like for a girl: Harper, Marlowe, Kennedy, Morgan, Sydney,...

    All the time, in general my tastes run similar to what I call, period film old fashioned. That is, names that are both revival and with a fashionable modern sound. But I also really like just old...

    I think you should go with James, since it is the name you love and it sounds fine with Chang. It doesn't have the best flow but you'd be naming a person not writing a novel and it doesn't matter as...

    Sometimes starting fresh can be helpful. Some ideas to get you started: Set this list aside then pick up a good name book ( one that is not too large and doesn't list every slight variation) and just...

    I love Abraham John. Two great names. For honor names I usually suggest going for the one that means more to you to use than what sounds the best. Axel I'm not a fan of. It seems a little too much....

    Sylvie True fits your criteria best I think. Sylvie it itself is the most timeless and elegant of the bunch and making it into a double name with True makes it very unique and memorable. Gold isn't...

    You can download the whole SSA list from the website and see how many have the name below the top 1000, as long as there are at least 5 babies that year with the name.
    For reference, the 1000th...

    So this was a fun thing to ponder. It's not something I've given any thought to before really, I'm pretty content with my name. When I was a child I wanted to be a Stephanie or Jennifer because those...

    Rose is my favorite, but I've been really into Rosalind and now Rosanna lately. I tend to not like frilly names as much. I've liked Rosemary a lot in the past but it's in a down phase for me right...

    No, I didn't. I think Eliza is fine, but the op later made a second post saying she would like a name that is different, but is having trouble finding anything else and asked for suggestions.

    I've found that now that I have kids, I increasingly am drawn to names that sound similar to their names. It's pretty common. If you would like to find a name that is different this is what I'd...

    The name ratings for England will give you a general sense of what is popular overall and that is a good place to start. Names do vary a bit by location and socioeconomic categories. Generally I...

    It's not worth it to fight about now. There is too much that can change by then. If in the future you are still together and have a son you'll be in a better place to be respectful of each other and...

    It's way too similar for me, I like my kid's names to be distinct for the usual sorts of reasons. However, that is just my personal naming philosophy and it isn't for everyone. I don't think most...

    Margery, Diana, Felix and Quentin. Well that's four, but they are my latest obsessions. Loving Margery with Margaret's traditional nicknames: Margo, Maisie, Mae or Maggie. Too many great choices!

    I'm not up in arms. I'm just saying that's how it is. I just would never recommend Nameberry to a prospective parent because of it. If I'm sick of the nastiness in Nameberry I don't visit. And don't...

    If you could only pick Luke or Liv which would you pick? It's possible you'll change your favorite names by the time you have your second. It happens more often than not. There is nothing wrong with...

    Wren and Rhys are definitely too close sounding for me but some people have a higher tolerance for that sort of thing. If you want to make sure your kids names are distinct though it's probably best...

    Willa is the best for someone who will be an adult someday. Maisie and Hattie are cute but better as nicknames. Etta I think could work also but it feels the most incomplete to me and I think works...

    I don't think you're boxed by choosing Alice or other classic names at all! It is the most versatile style. Mary is also a good choice, I'm very fond of it myself. Modern surname names like Greer and...
