    I was reading this thinking how nice Aili is, and how much more accessible than Ailis, which I've loved for a while but which would be hard to wear in the US. So I am delighted that you went with...

    I knew a Begonia! Foreign exchange student at my high school. I think it sounds a tad heavy but is still usable.

    Oops! I would have said it like Ada. Maybe because I read that book too.

    If it's pronounced AH-da, it wouldn't sound exactly like the a in August or addition for me. But that's more of an accent...

    I think they're really close, but I also wouldn't think you were narcissistic. I like just plain Caroline, but you probably do want a nickname up your sleeve in case Carrie or Care happens, since...

    Alice is one of those names that is usually just spelled one way, so this seems like a future hassle even though Allis and Alys look pretty. With names like Katherine/Catherine or even Zoe/Zoey,...

    It goes together perfectly, no clashing at all. It's funny, I'd call Ada vintage, but I'd call Penelope and Leonor more classic/international. Whatever you call the style, it works. I've always...

    I agree with the others. If she has no nickname, people often feel the need to shorten anything that's 3+ syllables, and Maggie or Mag will happen. If you tell people it's Nola for short, they'll...

    On one hand, the names don't appeal to me personally. On the other, I would be delighted to meet a baby with this name! Even if not my style, I recognize both as nice, upbeat names. And I have a...

    A lot of the first names I love are very staid and unassuming, even if they aren't popular on the charts (eg, Anne, Susanna, Kathleen). And I also LOVE the idea of a somewhat punchier middle name!...

    I make an exception for Allison/Alison, since in my understanding those didn't spring up as "son of" names, but rather as a diminutive of Alice (similar how Margaret -> Meg -> Megan, or Elizabeth ->...

    All-ma. Northeastern US. Or to be more accurate, almost like the Spanish word alma, but a bit less... well, Spanish... on the L. I don't say the A quite as broadly as the a of "all," nor is it so...

    I'm related by marriage to an adult, non-Nordic Dagmar ... I mean, you couldn't even mistake her for Nordic by accident, and it doesn't seem weird to me. So I'm in the camp that people could adjust...

    At least where I live (NY) you can register a first name with a space in it, so you could even make "Mary Rose" her first name instead of MaryRose if you wish, then add a separate middle. The...

    I love Wren too, and I think it hits some of what you love about Fallow: nature associations, an uncomplicated sound, and a slightly quirky or Bohemian vibe. I remember Ren and Stimpy, but it was on...
