    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...

    That's not true. The hormones from the birth control pill will be out of your system in a matter of days.

    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...

    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 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,...

    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...

    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:
