    It doesn't sound like your current system of you making suggestions and your husband giving them a "yes" or "no" is working very well for you. It is much, much easier to veto an idea than it is to...

    As noted, "bonne" is a maid in French, as in the servant who works in a wealthy person's house. I'm not sure why you would want to give such a title to your daughter.

    This page will be helpful to you - it's a list of the most common surnames in Quebec. They are quite different from the most common surnames in France, since the French who immigrated here were but a...

    Athena and Philomena (or Mena) sound a bit silly together, IMO.

    I'd go with Daphne or Ariadne. Penelope is becoming very common, especially since it was used by Kardashian, and I'd avoid...

    I definitely had a weird, general feeling that something was up with both pregnancies - no specific symptoms, but just feeling a little off somehow. But that wasn't until around a month after...

    The bolded is quite important; however, it is not necessarily confusing or detrimental if parents speak more than one language to their child. Let me explain. :)

    Kids are pragmatic; by default...

    I pronounce it Ah-poh-LEEN. I think it's usable but I find it loses a lot of its appeal when pronounced with an American accent; it sort of sounds like you're saying "a Pauline". I actually think...

    Normally I wouldn't love the idea of Madelyn and Marianne in the same set of siblings, but as you're planning to call her Annie I don't see a problem. I think Violet would fit well in your family as...

    I think Desmond is by far the best name in the poll, but Desmond and Molly together strikes me as really silly because of the Beatles song.

    I think it's normal to second guess your choice when you're the type of person who thinks a lot about names. The more you think about it, the less exciting it will seem after a while.

    So, one...

    Tiernan Rhys is my favourite, followed by Stellan Rhys. I don't care for the others.

    First of all, I don't really understand why it's surprising that certain books are the favourite of many people. TKAM is one of the most celebrated books in the history of American literature - of...

    I, too, like Roman Ross and Jacob Ross best. I voted for Roman just because Jacob is extremely popular, but if popularity doesn't bother you then Jacob Ross is a good combination and I love the...

    Declan would be my first choice, followed by Glenn and then Fraser.

    I don't get the appeal of Alaska or Indy at all. To be frank, they sound like great names for a pet, rather silly for a human...

    Violet. Ella is very overdone and it reminds me of elephants. Love Ella Fitzgerald but not because of her name. ;)

    The surname consideration is a good point. It's not necessarily a good thing to be the only person in the world with your first name-last name combination, because every stupid thing you do on the...

    I think the main thing to consider when you choose a very unusual name is whether it's so unusual that your child will have to explain it every time he introduces himself to someone. Many people are...

    I would really avoid using another X name. Felix and Max together aren't bad, but Felix, Max and Alex is just way too cutesy.

    Using a moderately popular name really isn't a big deal - it's not like there will be four of them in your child's class - so unless the name you love is jumping up the charts hundreds of spots per...

    I don't have any suggestions better than the ones you've already received, and I like all the names you're considering for the first name. William could be a nice nod to Shakespeare and then you...

    I like Pascal; it does have the Easter association but some people also think of the French scientist Blaise Pascal, after whom a unit of measurement for measuring pressure was named.

    I guess my answer would depend on where you're living. If you're in the US or Canada, you'll have a lot of spelling problems with Llywelyn (I'd never seen this spelling until now, as Llewellyn is the...

    Giselle Marian
