    I think the negative side of "a Pollyanna" is that they don't have much substance - it's like calling someone an airhead or a ditz.

    I like Polly quite a lot, but I don't like Pollyanna. I would...

    Love it!! Although I kind of like the Mirabel spelling more, they're both lovely. I like simple, one-syllable names best as middles.

    Mirabelle Jane
    Mirabelle Claire
    Mirabelle Tess

    They're both beautiful names. Imogen is a little less popular, if that matters to you. I love Georgia and Charlotte together, though... George and Charlie, maybe?! Adorable.

    Sadie
    Penelope

    One thing to consider is that while your daughter may not be the only Penelope on the playground - and there's no way to avoid this really, even if the name doesn't climb much higher - it has the...

    I agree with the previous commenters. "Sibsets" is an overrated concept, in my opinion. (With the caveat that you don't want one sibling to stand out awkwardly from the others.) That being said,...

    Sorry, that spelling is Dolores. (Which, by the way, is a lilting and underused name, IMO!)

    In Nabokov's book, her name is Delores. She goes by Dolly at school and her mom calls her Lola or Lo. It's only her predatory stepdad who calls her Lolita - he invented this cutesy nickname for her...

    I like Southern names, and they won't sound like hick names unless you're a hick. :D

    I love Magnolia, and nicknames Maggie and Nola. Nola is so elegant! However, I think you need to be 100% in love with a name to use it. Don't use Magnolia if you are so worried.

    I truly love them both! Have you considered a third child? ;) You really can't go wrong with either name. I love the nicknames and how they sound with Nora.

    I also like Hazel Jo. I wouldn't give a nickname name as a FN, but somehow as a middle it sounds cute and sweet to me.

    I love your girls' names, and Hazel may be my favorite. I have two boys and thought I was done, so I named my dog Hazel. And now I'm not done. Oh well! I get a lot of compliments on my dog's name! :D...

    I love it, and agree it sounds strong and wise. It also has a soft feel to it - he was known as the wise and just king, but also as a passionate lover. I don't know if I'd choose Court as a middle -...

    I like Milo of your choices. The cat thing doesn't bother me - I think it's a cool and pretty subtle connection.

    I also second Jasper. This seems to fit well with Felix - both cool, zippy names.

    I love Ruth. It's classic and simple, like Jane, but just a bit softer. It's not overused. I'd use it in a heartbeat.
