Cressida Daisy and Henry Finnick
Hey, y'all. This thread is *old*. I'm sure her decision is made already, and calling the name "awful" isn't kind at all.
They're both good pairs. I think it would depend on the sirname. If you're last name is short, go with Margaret. If it's long, go with Jane.
Vivienne, nn. Vivi, is a lovely name. This is why I never "test out" name choices with the general public before baby is born. I will quietly mention certain frontrunners to a couple of friends whom...
She likes Harper, He likes Lydia
He like Emma, She likes Esther
He like Elizabeth, She likes Olivia

I think what puts your names "over the top" is the fact that they are a mouthful. Evangeline, Felicity, and Genevieve are not particularly unique these days. They are still fresh-sounding (especially...
She likes Alice, He likes Rachel.

Savannah is a very southern-sounding, feminine name to my ears. Of the choices you've listed, I think Norah strikes the correct note, but I'm not sure about the middle name Maxie. Norah Maxine would...

Of the four, Eden Lily is my favorite. I prefer the "Veda" spelling to "Vada". I know you didn't list it as a choice, but I think Veda Harlow is a very classy-sounding combination.
She likes: Jonah He likes: Benjamin
I chose Stella James because I think, of all your choices, Stella fits best with your current sibset. That being said, I strongly dislike the trend of giving girls the middle name James, and I think...

Why not keep your legal name what it is and call yourself Leigh? I know your mom said she doesn't mind if you change it, but unless she's come right out and told you that she was an idiot and/or...
If you really want to use your great-grandmother's name and get the nickname Elle, I think you should probably just name her Elsa. Yes, people will make the Disney connection, but that's not as awful...

Lucy is a fine stand-alone name. It's lovely as it is, and would go quite well with the rest of your sibset. Only you can decide if it would be too much of a reminder of your estranged relationship...

You're welcome! I was also a huge "Annie" fan as a child. A couple of the other orphans' names from the film are quite usable--Tessie and Molly come to mind. HTH!

Oh, I'm so sorry! That's rough!
I do think Zuzu is charming and very usable, though I'd probably go with Susan or Susanna on her birth certificate. It's one of my favorite vintage nicknames,...

I've been into names since I was super-little. I named my first Cabbage Patch doll Lilly Lilac. Lest you think I had amazingly forward-thinking tastes, the rest of my doll/stuffed...

Tilly and Vesper clash to my ears. The styles are so very different. Neither name is bad, they just don't go together, so I chose Lily Anne Vesper.
Historically, Molly was a nickname for Mary, so I'd think any Mary variation could work. I've also heard it as a nickname for Margaret.

Hi! I'd advise against choosing names are so closely matching in sound. Can you tell us why you like these names, what kinds of names you are drawn to, etc?

I'd go with Sophia Alice. Crystal sounds very dated. I was born in the late 70's and grew up with a lot of Crystals. In my mind, Crystal has crimped hair, bangle bracelets, and is chewing gum with...

Gabriel, Rachel, and Virginia sound like a lovely sibset. The name is coming back into fashion, and I don't think I'd worry about teasing. If it really bothers her in high school, she can just go by...
