I like Fuchsia A LOT, but the potentially spelling difficulty might deter me from using it. I'd definitely spell it Fuchsia though.
I prefer Caleb, or Callan.
I like Rupert a lot and nannied a boy named Rupert (actually his middle but he went by it). I don't much care for the NN options and wouldn't use it myself but would love to hear it.
I think they both work to honor Maria! And I don't think the Marina association is bad at all, the fact that it's a water name is part of it's appeal!
I'm pretty against boy's names on girls for multiple reasons. If you're naming her after someone, I find it a little more appealing, but for the most part:
I have a unisex name and I hate...

Honestly since my morning sickness stopped about three weeks ago I've eaten largely junk food. It's REALLY bad, I'm pretty sure I had fast food 3 times in one week the other week. Suddenly healthy...

Today my aunt was like "so you're having another baby? Well...if that's what you want to do...it's your choice..."
What an odd comment.
Camden Oliver Lee Kelly flows much better!
Personally I would consider switching the Lee's location. Lee and Kelly rhyme either way, so I think:
Camden Lee Oliver Kelly sounds best!

I love June "nature name that rhymes with Goods"!! I also love Harriet!! I think I slightly prefer June. You can't go wrong.

@emmilrose I'm so sorry! I agree having a grandchild on the way will be a great distraction for your mom.
And re: the adoption comments...my boyfriend is adopted, and when he lived with her he...
Well...my child's name wasn't on my top 5, so if you figure it out, let me know :p

@velvetcrush, I'm in the same boat. With my first, I was pretty confident, I knew life would completely change but I was totally prepared. With the second, I'm terrified of how my first will react,...

Not at all? Margot and Celeste are well used, long standing, classic names. They're no more likely to be made fun of than Alice and Camille or really any other name. Maggot and incest are kind of a...

Wow, I didn't know it was common for people to have scans so often?? Here we only get 2-3.
Mirimouse, you may want to mention that to HR. At least in my state, if a supervisor or higher up said...

I would never think of Blue Ivy if someone told me Jane Ivy was their baby's name. Yes they're similar in that they have a single syllable first followed by Ivy, but:
Ivy is a timeless classic...
Actually....it's very common and often recommended to change the names of young children in foster care, particularly if they have come from a traumatic situation. Granted, this child is young enough...

I voted Harlow. It is a bit trendy, and chances are people will guess when she was born, but that's not the worst thing! Lola is a great nn.
Chloe is ok, but I think it doesn't age well AT ALL....

I don't know if you mean your surname is pronounced or sounds like Grandmayer, but I think both Juliet and Naomi sound great with that surname

I also find it bizarre for someone to say a girl will just grow up to change her name??? Unless you're in a culture where it's unheard of for girls not to marry and take a new name, but most of...
Odd question, but how else could Inez be pronounced? I suppose with an E or I sound at the start, but those sound so close to me I wouldnt think twice about getting both.
Never give up on a name because someone in your family makes a comment. If it's something with a strong basis, like "hard to spell" or has a bad association, sure...but someone not liking their name...

Cordelia is my #1, but I love lots on your list, especially Cosima and Clementine
I don't think Cadence spelled Cadence is awful....I think of it along the lines of Melody or Harmony or Aria or other musical names.
However I have seen a few girls called "Kaydence" or "Kadynce"...
Before kids became a reality for me, yes, my lists were drastically, drastically different. What I would have named my daughter was I single:
Beatrix Henrietta, Aurelia June, Felicity Faith,...
