    What about Nella? I think it would still have that simplicity you love (I do, too!) and Nella Twiss flows a little better than Nell Twiss. I think Eleanor could work too.

    I would also pronounce it "Ree- ANN-nen."
    I think I'd pick "unusual and interesting"- I think this name has a lot of personality! Rhia and Rhi are cute nicknames.

    I would pronounce both as "eh-VAN-nuh" and "eh-VAN-gel-ine."
    Maybe the difference in pronunciation is regional? I'm from the mid-atlantic U.S., if that helps :)

    I think Cora is beautiful! I've never met an older Cora, only a couple in the toddler set (and of course there's Lady Cora on Downton Abbey). Go for it! It's lovely.

    Thinking of girls names... any ideas?

    Hi Berries!
    I joined Nameberry a while ago as a writer looking for character names- and then my husband and I discovered we're going to have a baby to name, too! I'm due July 4. We haven't found...

    I know three Jillians (all with a J)- one is 26, one is 21, and one is 3. All three are very creative, bubbly, sweet people. I've always loved the name and I think it sounds beautiful with Rowan!

    I really like the rhythm when the second name is one syllable- I love Ava-Claire the most, to be honest! Others from your list that I like are Ava-Jayne, Ava-Kate, Ava-Mae and Ava-Joy.

    I know one boy Dylan and one girl Dylan, one 6 and one 3. I prefer it as a boy's name, but if paired with a feminine middle name I think it works for a girl.

    I've always thought it was beautiful- it's one of my absolute favorite names. The only associations I really have with it would be the herb, and just generally being a sweet girl's name.
