It's personally not my style, and I do like some "vintage" names. It just seems frumpy to me. I think I tend towards "vintage" names ending in "A" sounds (ex. Ida, Clara, etc.), so this falls outside...

Ivy: Beautiful and simple
Theodora: Beautiful and substantial
Sylvia: Underused classic
Solomon Ambrose: Great, strong combo with a great nickname!
Rafael: Handsome and with a great...

Either I know more females, pay attention to their names more, or females are just named more unique things...
Merit (I don't remember how it was spelled)
I love Mira, except for the reason that jenni_lynn pointed out. I would definitely consider it as a name for a girl if it weren't for the Spanish connection.
I think it ages well and sounds...
My name is Sarah and, though I can't really relate to unwanted nicknames, I've been surprised that some people don't know how to spell such a common name.
When people ask my name in order to...
When I saw Caira, I had to pause for a second to get the pronunciation (before I looked at your notes) and the first pronunciation that I got was the same as Kyra. And then I thought, "Well, that's a...
I appreciate your comments so much! I do realize that we don't all have the luck of having children when we want, but a girl can hope, no? :) Truthfully, I would rather have my...
Thanks dindlee and leadmythoughts for your responses and they lead me to think the same thing as before--wait and see how it goes and take it from there. Hopefully I'll be able to find a satisfying...

I had to look at it for a second and then I came up with rah-my-AH-nee.
Hi everyone. I live in the US and I'm entering my first year of teaching (public high school) this September. My husband and I both want children and we definitely both agree that ttc/birthing our...

I've been thinking a lot about this topic lately. For me to have a baby, I would prefer around the beginning or middle of May. I'm a teacher and this would give me my 6 weeks of maternity leave and...
My husband shared a room (and a bunk bed set) with his sister until he moved out to go to college! His sister is 2 years younger than he is. He says that they really didn't have issues with it, and...

I have a very common name, think top 3 for at least two decades. It's less common now, but still by no means unusual. Growing up I always had at least 3 or 4 other girls by this name in my grade at...
You're right to a point. If all of the members of a family marry someone from within the same "naming culture" then you will have a more straightforwardly named set of ancestors. However, as...

I agree with raqkel. I one of multiple girls named the same thing as others of my friends and it didn't matter in the least. Even if you do name your daughter based off of your current circle of...
I went to high school with an Allegra (the medication was out while I was in HS) and I never associated the name with the medicine. I think that it is a beautiful name and, if anything, conjures up...

I absolutely love Anne London. However, as others have said, if you call Stanton "Stan" then Anne and Stan is too similar for my taste. Catherine (spelled this way) is lovely as well. You really...
I really like Anna for a girl, but Anna by itself is a touch boring for me. What are some longer names that could have Anna as a nickname? The ones that I can think of are Annabel (and all of its...

In all honesty I don't really like Burl. It makes me think of burly or a burl on a tree (a large deformation). It is definitely a very masculine name, which if you went with it would make a good...

I would pronounce it shuh-SHOW-nee

Congratulations on your engagement!
From you list I like the following names, and I didn't really take the last name into consideration:
Sullivan Webster (I haven't ever though of Sullivan as a...
This is how I would unless I were corrected by the name bearer.
Remmy (and its variants)
I second whoever said a two-syllable name ending in an "ee" sound.
