    I immediately thought of vanilla in racial terms, and recoiled a bit, especially as all of the names everyone is listing are stereotypically very white and upper income.

    I think using Waiola without some kind of connection to Hawaii is a bit-- well, odd. And Willa on its own goes much better with the other names you listed than Waiola, though there is something sort...

    I don't think the names are comparable; Elliot has been thoroughly separated from whatever its original root meaning was. It's really a surname-name, derived from a French version of Elias/Elijah....

    Hmm, has anyone suggested Lucille? Or Lucia? They're both nice with your other kids' names and a good route to Lucy as a nickname.

    Other names that come to mind:

    Vivian/Vivienne

    I love Twila and it would be near the top of my list if my partner were on board for it. I've tried it out on a lot of people, and the usual reaction I get is "Southern". So be prepared for that!

    Welcome to the top 10, Charlotte

    ...well, maybe I'm being a little hyperbolic, but I do think the newest Clinton will add even more oomph to Charlotte's rise through the rankings.

    Or will the strong dislike many people have for...

    I like Roxana a lot-- it would be one of my favorites, except that 3 people in a row have told me it made them think of prostitution. I think it's the lingering effects of the Police's "Roxanne". :(

    Besides Mikaela (Swedish/Nordic), Mikhaila is also a traditional Russian spelling. If you have Slavic heritage, that could fly. Still a pain to spell, but at least it's not purposefully mispelled.

    Let's talk about Maisie

    I love it. However, I don't think it has enough substance to stand on its own. Is anyone up for convincing me otherwise? DH-to-be likes it as a full form on its own, but he's so mild mannered about...

    I think Wren is fine on a boy. It's not very common for girls, and I don't see it becoming mainstream for them really. (Mostly because of the non-intuitive spelling and the fact that the current...
