    No, a girl named Sadie doesn't have a dog name. Dogs named Sadie have a human name. :)

    Well, it depends on the names in question, but I kind of like alliteration. With the right names, I feel like it adds extra energy and can make the name more memorable.

    They're both so lovely, it's hard to choose. Hmm. In the end, I think I'd go with Gwen Felicity.

    Gwen and Jude are wonderful together, btw, and it's great to see Gwen on someone's short list!

    Well, that's true, but I think the OP is talking about names with no real history or associations beyond one pop culture reference. Names more like Renesme (however it's spelled!), Katniss, and...

    I sort of hear the "insane" part, but I also want to read Kieran Thompson as "Keenan Thompson," as a previous poster mentioned.
    Overall, I prefer Keiran Zane, but both combos are fine, really.

    Moira reminds me of "moist," a word that gives me the heebie-jeebies. :( The "moy" sound just doesn't work for me.

    Oh, but I love Maura! It's beautiful.

    I have a mix of both on my lists, but I generally prefer shorter names. They feel spunkier, more energetic. To me, sometimes, long names feel so ponderous and overwrought by comparison.

    lee-ZET, but the "lee" is a little breathier than how I say it in Lee or Leah. It's sort of halfway between "lee" and "lih."

    It's a pretty name that's a neat combo of sweet and saucy.
