    It sounds like you are on the right track! Great names.

    My very favorite of your list is Maeve Frances. I think Maeve is going to make a slow but steady comeback and won't be seen as weird. My...

    I absolutely love the name Nadia. I think it would be a daring choice, but not a wild one. I have only met one Nadia in my life, and she was younger than age 10.

    She was named for Romanian gymnast...

  5. How the name Steele can go so very wrong

    I just met an eighth-grade boy named Steele D-i-c-k-e-r-s-0-n.

    I confirmed the name and the spelling with his teacher.

    I don't know what his parents were thinking. All I know is that I turned...

    These have been incredibly interesting to read. My husband and I don't have children yet (we hope our first baby is born in 2016), but I have NO idea what kind of reactions we will eventually get. We...

    I have a friend who is Native American (Objibwe, to be more specific). Her daughters' names are beautiful.

    I do not know the equivalents in their native tongue.

    Daughters:

    After a very long road to parenthood, I know a couple who named their firstborn son Thomas True.

    Normally, I despise that sort of alliteration, but I fell in love with their "true" love.

    Oooooooh, I will definitely second Juliet and Annabel.

    Other possibilities that I don't think were mentioned yet: I think they all sound quite sophisticated, maybe even glamorous in some cases:...

    My own horrible name spot of the month: Haydley Maeigh. Yes, that is the spelling used.

    Honestly, all I see are bales of hay. And all the kreatif spellings ...

    I am not in love with Sharon, but I don't hate it, either! Sharon certainly has an interesting history.

    I have identical twin cousins named Sharon and Karen who are in their late 50s. (Their poor...

    I am so very sorry to hear about the loss of your baby. I think the decision of whether to give your child a name is one only you and your husband can make.

    I think naming your baby will help you...

    I honestly do appreciate your admiration for the state of Nebraska and the baby name consideration! It is liberating to see future parents consider names way beyond Ava and Emma and Sophia.

  15. Super vintage, super Irish baby name spot!

    I know of a baby girl named Orla Mary who was born March 1 in Iowa.

    She is the first Orla I have ever known. I think her name is beautiful, but I don't think I would be that brave to venture that...
  16. I think I would be tempted to go with Eleanor or...

    I think I would be tempted to go with Eleanor or Jacqueline for a girl. ;-) However, I don't know if that would really fit since the boys' names are all surnames.
  17. Six Iowa brothers named for U.S. presidents!

    Normally, I think this sort of sibling naming is gimmicky -- however, for some reason, in this case, I don't mind.

    All six of the brothers' names are strong and traditional.

    The brothers:...

    I think Nicole is much more of an 80s name than 90s name, but I suppose it depends a lot on where you live.

    I heartily agree on Brittany and Jessica -- very 90s!

    I would like to add Kelsey and...

    My first thought: Colette with a nickname of Letta. Gorgeous.

    Other ideas:
    Geneva
    Lilia
    Adra
    Veronica, called "Nica" by her best friends.

    Good luck to you!

    I am the original poster. I feel the same as so many of you -- WHY? What is driving this trend? I honestly can't figure it out.

    It is almost as if parents are trying super hard to be unique, and...

    I am really going to be showing my age on this one, but here goes! I am a child of the 80s, and back then, Sundance was a very popular My Little Pony. (I still have two Sundances in a box somewhere.)...

    Royal! Royal Wilder was Laural Ingalls Wilder's brother-in-law. It used to be more common waaaaay back in the day. And yes, I think it was used predominantly for boys. I'm not positive, though.
  24. Trending: Boys' names ending in -yn, -en? Oh my, Brayson!

    Is it just in my little world in the Midwest, or are other of you Berries out there seeing this trend?

    Lots and lots of newborn boys with names that seem made up, and often end in -yn, -en, or...
