Yeah, Sydney the city is named after a person named Lord Sydney. It's not really a place name, no matter if it's spelt with a y or an i. I have heard of it on girls, but I never really got it and I...
Yeah, it's kind of awkward, because you worry people will think you're baby crazy. Because what's the point of looking up names if you have nobody to name, right? I just have always (mostly) kept it...

Haha, @adelina_sophia, you might want to look up libertine in the dictionary.
Both Henry and Alexander would be perfect. I prefer Alexander, because it is a bit different phonetically (Sophie and Henry end with the same sound, but this is a really minor point, it doesn't...
P.S. I would also say that if your friend is keen to start TTC, there is no reason to wait. Take the last pill, and then stop using other protection right away. If your friend is one of those who...
Nah, I much prefer David.
That's not true. The hormones from the birth control pill will be out of your system in a matter of days.
Blade explained this on an earlier thread - it may take longer than a month for normal...
Yes, I knew this was directed at the people who have rigid ideas about the gender binary and use 'soft' as some sort of cloaked insult meaning 'girly' as if 'girly' was a bad thing. Sorry, I was...
I know my real top 10 won't be helpful, so here are my top English names!

Yes, sometimes. I know several large sibling groups, though, and most of them seem to keep pretty much in style.
5 sisters: Alis0n D@phne, Cl@ire L@ura, Is0bel R0salie, V1vien Annǝ, Penel0pe (my...

The majority of my long list is not included in the Nameberry database, unsurprisingly. They have a grand total of 4 Icelandic names listed. Two of these are spelt incorrectly, one is not a name at...
I really like:
Félix (of course nobody would use the French pronunciation automatically for an English-speaking country)
Léo (same issue as Félix)...
I love Emil and Ronja! These are names very much identified with Astrid Lindgren in Iceland (she is very much loved here). I have only read Ronja Ræningjadóttir in Icelandic, and I remember Ronja is...

I don't really get this, because as far as I'm concerned 'strong' and 'soft' are not opposites? I personally do aspire to names that I think are strong, but I don't think this precludes softness or...
I find Nathaniel a bit unnecessarily fussy. Nathan is a good, solid name and personally I like it better without the extra frill - to me it feels stronger than Nathaniel. For either option, though,...
Hmm, I don't necessarily think this is an issue (unless it's something extreme - some names definitely sound babyish no matter the age of the person), especially when we're talking about names that...
18, just went away to university, drunk at a bar, only just met him. It later became evident to me that this man was terrible at kissing. Like, really weird, sucking actions going on, haha. I spent...

We've never discussed it, but I assume my parents will be Granny and Grandpa, because that's what we all called my mother's parents. We called my dad's father Grandad to differentiate, and his mother...
It's SIE-ləs. Stress on first syllable, so the second vowel is a schwa, like all unstressed vowels in English. People often don't know how to write it, but it's ə, like an upside-down e.
From your signature, I think Eli, Gabriel and Jonah are definitely the sort of names I would 'expect' to see on a brother of Silas. A few more with a similar background/popularity that I think would...
@nlane825: Your situation sounds very similar to mine, although I didn't have many symptoms, and I was pregnant. I was over day 40 when I got a positive - I assume I ovulated late. Just be patient (I...
Max. Just Max. It's a great name.
Dexter is also good, but I definitely prefer Max.
Well, they all seem pretty Celtic. Irish, Scottish, Welsh, so you could look for other names in that area. They are also quite short and simple, so I'm guessing nothing too extravagant? Maybe:
August - I don't like it, but I don't have any particular reason, I just don't care for the sound of it. It's not a bad name.
Ronan/Roman/Rowan- I love these, especially Rowan. Rowan is definitely...
