Despite preferring Henry to Harry, I prefer Harriet to Henrietta. Henrietta seems like a strained female-version-of-a-male-name with so many syllables and consonants. Plus Harriet reminds me of...
The only Maxine I've met is a crotchety old cat...and the name suits her. Not a fan of Maxine, and Maxi does make me think of sanitary napkins and Jessica Simpson's daughter (neither a great...

Another one for Cordelia!
Like Marie before it and Rose more recently, Grace became popular because it's short and sweet, and thus pairs well with so many other names. Its popularity has made it lose its shine for many...

Two classic names together can sound stuffy, but I think that effect is fine for a full name. Daily he would just be August (or Auggie? Gus?). August Leopold would likely only be used on formal...

Love Schuyler Isaac!
I love it. Short and sweet. It feels very balanced to me, in consonants/vowels and strength/softness. Another one of its assets is that it's very international. And it reminds me of Nina Simone!
Not secret, but names I like for their uncommonness and would actually use for a child (and would be VERY upset if they starting popping up in multiple places, especially on celebrities' offspring):...
mistressmary, you have great taste!
Thalia: I love this, obviously (it's in my signature too). I prefer the spelling Talia, but only slightly.
Josephine: Classic, solid, feminine. Love the...

I think Luke would be pair really well with a 3 syllable surname ending in -ski. I would then choose a 2 syllable middle for good flow, but a 3 or 4 syllable middle could work too, depending on which...
I like Ezekiel, but it's too much when paired with Zion (z heavy and seems over zealously religious). I think you should go with Jacob Ezekiel OR Jacob Zion, Joseph Ezekiel OR Joseph Zion.
Maverick feels gimmicky. Gideon and Reuben, on the other hand, are classic and handsome names.
Ever since I met a Ford I have really liked the name. For me it has an Americana feel, due to its connections to Henry Ford, Harrison Ford, and Gerald Ford. I agree that you should probably go with a...
This exactly, haha:
"First thought: ancient Rome, second thought: Kato Kalin (OJ trial), 3rd thought: What's it got to do w/that weird movie? I must be getting old."
Cato is a lovely name....

Makes me think of ranunculus. I think it's useable in an English-speaking country; it's unfamiliar but the pronunciation is intuitive. As for a nickname, I would use Lulu. :)

I've known a Lisa spelled Liza. Um, no. Liza spells lie-zuh not lee-suh. And she was native-born American, English as her first language, so...no.
I once read about Onri, the phonetic spelling of...

Like: Agatha, Virgil, Hershel
Dislike: Wren, Paisley, Jasper, Briony, Maisie
I'm also in the camp that dislikes names chosen for machismo, such as Cannon, Gunner, etc. But I do not mind...
Esther: Stands out from your other picks as more streamlined and harder. I would describe Esther as ugly-pretty, no frills, and strong.
Leona: The long e immediately followed by the long o makes...
