Personally I couldn't name my child something I disliked; I would pick a variant or another way to honour them. Some people do feel they need to use the exact name though.
You can use variants, or...
Julia Cheah is too rhymey for me, sorry. Would you consider Julie Cheah? It'd be a nice nod to your sister and your childhood self too. You could also give her a hyphenated last name, Julia...
I love Imogen! Like others, it has a classy and sophisticated, very British vibe to me, and I'm a total Anglophile. The Shakespeare character is a likeable and gutsy one. It's quite unique here too;...
Schuyler- I know how it's supposed to be pronounced but still can't help but try to say it phonetically. It's definitely not too girly though, especially with that spelling which is almost never used...
I say it roz-uh-mund, but wouldn't bat an eyelid at rose-uh-mund. It's sophisticated, chic, charmingly clunky, and solid.
Matilda is a lovely, strong name and Clementine goes really well with it. I've always thought that (any combination of) Matilda, Beatrice, Eleanor, and Philippa made a great sibset. I love...

GWTW is my favourite book and movie, so I saw the association almost right away. But given that many people don't even seem to know who Scarlett O'Hara is (then again I'm not American), I think...
I love Darcy for a boy- gorgeous, romantic, evocative, and with the Mr Darcy reference! Declan, Brooks, Crew, and Royal all seem rather rough-and-tumble though while Darcy is softer and more...
I usually prefer longer, frillier names too, but Hazel and Olive go so well together. Both are vintage-chic and having a revival, and subtly nature-y.
Perseus Elijah "Percy" would be perfect for a boy of your description! Soft, strong and funky, I imagine a little live wire bouncing off the walls with energy, grinning from ear to ear. It has an...
@Ebs- Aww, that sucks. My dorm building (I'm home now though) is more than 100 years old, and has a clunky steam heating system and very sensitive fire alarms that randomly go off a lot. Not fun in a...

Welcome new Teenberries!
@Adelina- That sounds fabulous! Lots of sunshine and relaxation. I'm not really a beach person in real life, but I can totally see the appeal for other people, haha. Who...
Jane is a classic with tons of history behind it, that will never become dated. There have been so many great Janes in history and pop culture. Jane Austen is one of my favourite authors. The name...

DD: Imogen Cordoba

Gwyneth and Owen are proud of their Welsh heritage and want their...
Congratulations on your new daughter! Emiliana Pari is a beautiful, cross-cultural name. Glad that she's calm for your sake and hope that headache (and all your other aches and pains) go away soon.

Martha is too clunky for my taste.
Minerva is solid, stately, and dependable but glamorous at the same time. I picture a woman with alabaster skin, black curls, and rosy red cheeks.
By the time she's old enough she needs to initial things, she'll be past the point of being teased for them. I'm in university and still rarely do, definitely didn't in elementary/high school- it's...

Ramona nn. Romy- not old lady at all! totally usable
Etta- old lady chic, usable
Magnolia nn. Maggie- not old lady at all
Dorothy nn Dory or Dot- fusty, Dory and Dot not really...
Too odd and clunky for everyday use, sorry. People would constantly mistake it for Earth, and when people say the word earth she would easily mistake it for her name. And Bertha is too dated, sorry.
My father's name is Matthias, pronounced muh-THIGH-us. He was born overseas but that seems to be the most common pronunciation here in Canada too.
My guess would be mar-lay-nah. I prefer the European mar-lay-nuh pronunciation of Marlene though. (-ah and -uh do sound noticeably different to me.) It's a lovely name, with a vintage-chic but fresh...
