I prefer Rilla as a NN and think both Marilla and Amaryllis are lovely names, but having said that if you want to use just Rilla then I don't see why not. Plenty of lovely names started off as...

Thackeray nn Ray
Roman nn Romy
Alexander nn Xander
Judah nn Jude
Julian nn Jules
Sebastian nn Bastian or Seb
Tobias or Tobiah nn Toby
Congrats and I'm glad you finally settled on a name you both love. Better to get it right even if it takes a while!
Isla and Madeline are lovely as a sibset.
How do you feel about Miriam? It has the same Hebrew root as Mary (both derived from the name Mara) and would work better with Myrna.
I personally think they are too close. They have two many things in common, not just the M but also the Y sound and the same number of syllables, and I think it would get confusing. I think you would...
Oh forgot to say, you could always give him two middle names if you really want to use Wilder - Oakley Jack Wilder sounds great :)
I like the sound of Oakley Wilder but if your other sons have family names then I would do the same for this one. I think he might feel left out when he is older and finds out his brothers have...
Hunter is NMS but I think the addition of Rose softens it a bit. Sawyer from your sig is a much nicer name in my opinion, and could also be hyphenated as Sawyer-Rose. Piper, as others have suggested,...
I love the Hunger Games connection for Rue, what a great character to be named after :)
I'm not keen on Angel, partly because I have a cousin called Angel who has been plagued throughout her life...

I would have said Miles, but I personally would avoid siblings with matching initials, especially same gender (don't know why but that makes more of a difference to me!)
Out of your other choices,...
I don't think it's dated at all, I think it's a really nice name and Frankie is a great nickname.
Francesca is much more modern than Frances, which would be another way of getting to Frankie as a nn.
@Shalexis That sounds like a difficult situation. How likely is your other half to be able to get a job when he's finished studying? Round here jobs are just starting to pick up after the recession...
Elliot Maxwell and Hazel Philippa
From your combos: Ophelia Rosalind and Elliott Victor
Making my own: Ophelia Leonor and Elliott Hugo

I think a name change should be more about what you want it to say to people rather than what name goes with your face. People grow into the names they were given, when my parents chose my name they...

I definitely agree with other posters that feminism is about having the CHOICE to keep your name if you want to, it doesn't make you less of a feminist if you decide to take his name. I am a women's...
@lucialucentum No I haven't, I just thought I'd mention it because I always assume that our little British island is so small that no-one will understand me! I didn't mean to patronise anyone, sorry...
I would pronounce both of them as TA-be-tha, so because of that I would go with the more well-known spelling Tabitha. But if you want to pronounce it differently, then I think you should pick...

I'd love to write blogs. I am particularly interested in history, especially notable people who aren't as well-known as they should be, so I could pick out some with interesting names to...
I know what you mean about it being a 'nickname name', like calling a baby Dave instead of David, but I think it's been established as a separate name for long enough that you can get away with it. A...
To me, Juliana would be pronounced ju-lee-AH-na, with the AH like SarAH; whereas Julianna would be ju-lee-ANN-a, like the name Ann. I like both, probably slightly keener on Juliana if I had to choose.
I prefer the name Sawyer in general but love the sound of Beau Baxter, what a great name!
Anything that's ever been used by the Royals, so:
Albert (nn Bertie)

I think Rocco and Cleo are fine. My sister and I are Aimee and Zoe and the similar name ending never bothered us or my parents. Most of my favourite girls' names end in -a and I would still use them...
