    I like it! Maybe some will see it as a hefty Viking name (the same people who hate Hilda or Helga and picture blonde braids and a helmet) but probably not most. The short length makes it accessible...

    I majored in Spanish in college so Tia is a no-go for me; it would feel like calling a baby Grandma or Cousin. The -ia names are sweet but I prefer Thea, Lia, Sia, Fia, and Pia. But if you live in a...

    I agree that most Kelly's are between my age (28) and 15 years older through 10 years younger. Part of that wave of names that Irish-Americans were using at the time, like Shannon, Erin, Caitlin and...

    I know an adult Callie, just Callie, in her early 30s. I always loved it and thought it felt like those sweet old-fashioned nickname-names, like Ellie and Carrie. It's great on its own. PP covered...

    I'm sympathetic. You chose a beautiful, uncommon name and could not have anticipated this. But in terms of her overall identity, I think it would do more harm to unilaterally change the name of a...

    Beautiful choices, but Margaret Anne gets my vote because of the family connections. I love seeing Megan as a nickname. It makes a fine standalone but I'm a sucker for tradition. A lot of...

    There's also the way not-technically-popular names end up being unusually common in certain communities. I have two friends who have two (separate) close friends named Molly besides myself, and it...

    Is it Best Christmas Pageant Ever? I'm reading that one with my nephews right now (it also has me thinking about Gladys!).

    Imogene feels like a vintage Southern name, and I think it may have been...

    You have your work cut out for you, but the open, friendly, casual Sam was the way to go. Something that feels similar would be great for Baby 2.

    It's a non-English form of John, which is as boy as it gets IMO. As others mentioned Evelyn is very popular, not at all stale. It also fits better with your other favs. Evans as a MN is a great...

    I'm worried people with different accents will sound different when they say my kids' names. Can I spell:
    Eleanor as Ellanuh?
    Emily as Immaly?
    Holly as Harley?
    Benjamin as Binjamin?

    Elise.

    My SIL's cousin's name is pronounced like this. I'd only seen it on paper, and she spells it Alyce. I assumed it was a creative or variant spelling of Alice til I heard it IRL. The...

    My first thought was Barnaby with an accent, too. If it's made up, it sounds a bit too singsongy for my tastes. Sounds cute, but more like an Etsy shop than a girl. Bonnie is sweet though.

    Unfussy old-fashioned and nature names with a side of personality and spunk - that's what I'd say about your list. I like them all. Similar names, to me anyway - not sure of the popularity of these...

    Gwendolen has long been one of my favorites - I like that it's a little bit fairy tail, and a little bit down-to-earth. Guinevere is pretty too, but too connected to the sort of iffy mythological...

    I am American and thought of the cartoon. But if your friend travels or moves here, her name would be fine. I have many immigrant friends, a few with names that are almost swear words in English, and...

    I like that it clarifies the pronunciation. She'll have to spell it for people, but I think that happens with every name in the Kirsten and Kristin families. It wasn't ever as popular as Kristin, so...

    It may have separate origins as a name, but all I can think of is the word. And unlike the more generic literary names like Story or Sonnet or Lyric, it seems like a really specific and...

    I too prefer Sophie to Sophia. But it is the formal, full French name, not a nickname that some people choose to use on its own. Just as Julie is the French form of Julia, and Sylvie of Sylvia,...

    Ugh your in-laws sound a little... I don't want to leap to calling them racist, but they're dismissive of the unfamiliar. And it makes them look dumb, because it's common knowledge that Margarita is...

    Irina
    Juliette
    Rosalie
    Ileana
    Delphine or Delfina
    Annelie

    I'd steer clear of Elissa, since it often sounds the same, or nearly the same, as Alyssa.
