    I have to agree with the negative comments. I associate it with lower-class women born in the late 50s-late 70s (not that I'm proud of my classist views, I just wanted to be honest). To me Belinda,...

    I like it. I knew a woman with this name who went by "Elkie." It does connote the megafauna in the deer species a bit, however. That is, even though it has not etymological connection with elks. I...

    I'm with you on this. My mom has a weird accent/slight speech impediment or something. I'm not really sure what's up with her, honestly. But she has a really hard time sometimes saying even very...

    Is the question which is more girlie, or which we think is better? I think Ellie is girlier (so I voted for it), but I think Sarah is "better."

    I'd have a similar problem with a sibset that included Indira and Rudyard. I wouldn't be able to help but to think of Indira Gandhi (by far the most famous Indira in the world) and Rudyard Kipling...

    Unless you or your SO has Indian ancestry, I wouldn't go with another Indian name like Rohan or Priya since you already have an Indira. It leaves Azula out and maybe sends the wrong message about...

    Thanks again everyone. You're (most of you) making me warm to the name quite a bit. I don't mind the harshness of the name, although I might try to temper that with a softer-sounding middle name.

    I think Eurydice is great! Especially in the current age of Greek revivals, I think this is an uncommon and beautiful choice. People unfamiliar with the pronunciation would pick it up pretty quickly...

    Thanks! I like Frida and Ingrid a lot.

    Thanks for the responses.

    No, we're not really looking for Margaret derivatives. It's more that we're looking for clunky-but-nice Germanic-ish names.

    Greta I like a lot but has been used in my...

    Oh, interesting! It really sounded like an sh on that link you provided. But an interesting voiced sh. Sort of like between an aspirated l and a voiced sh somehow.

    Even if it gets pronounced...
  13. What do you think of this Margaret derivative?

    Margot is the go-to (got-to ha!) Margaret derived name around where I live. I love it, but have two close friends with baby Margots. Plus we have no French background, making it a somewhat odd...

    If I'm honest, it sounds a little trendy to me. And like a sort of WASPY mean-girl name. I think that might be some of the OITNB story rubbing off on the name. That is, Piper is supposed to be a bad...

    Back to Melanieā€¦ I agree that it seems dated, but it's actually a very ancient name. Apparently it was common to slaves in Greece in the classical period (means dark). FWIW

    What if you made Winter-Rose a compound name?...

    What if you made Winter-Rose a compound name? That way she's never just Winter Walter (which sounds odd, I agree). I've read that compound names are big in the UK, but maybe not Wales. Either way,...

    It's beautiful. And such a good, strong meaning or association behind it.

    Listening to the pronunciation, it's not that different from the name Sasha, which is a Russian and English diminutive for...

    Maybe people are thinking of the name Freda, which, when pronounced Fray-da is a Yiddish name. But otherwise, no. The opposite of Hebraic sounding. If anything, it's very Aryan.

    I understand your feelings about Edith. I think if I loved the name, I'd be concerned about its raising profile with the Downton Abbey character. And then finding another one in your neighborhood...

    I like both names, and we're considering them. But a major strike against both is this very conversation. I've told people we're considering Cordelia, and they say, "Oh, Cornelia! Lovely!" I think...

    Naomi and Esther are close ties for me. I love Naomi, but am slightly averse to girls' names that end in an ee sound, even in cases like these when they aren't diminutives.

    I think it will come...

    Is Norah really a Hebrew name? I thought it was a "Hebrewification" of a non-Hebrew name. That is, people have added an H to Nora, which is not a Hebrew name, but derives from longer names like...

    Uma makes me think of Parvati. It's another name for the Hindu god Parvati. I also thought it was a type of school within Buddhism, but I can't find any reference to that online, so I might be wrong....

    Thessaly makes me think of Thrace. I see how it could sound like a lispy Cecily, but I like it. I'd like it paired with a short Greek-ish middle name like Hero, Charis, Cora, Echo, Petra.
