Hi, dear! Way cool names!
I think I'd maybe use Delano or Averil in real life. Some of these I'm more likely to use with a little twist, as in Arwen instead of Arven, Crispin instead of...
I prefer Eliza, but I'm biased - it's my favorite name! To me, Eliza is timeless and chic whereas Annabelle, as pretty as she is, runs along the cutesy course. I'm just not into cutesy, personally....

My favorite is Eliza Wren Taylor because Eliza Wren is on my list for a future child! I really think Wren is sweet for her sister, and it works well with Taylor. I would, however, advise her to use...

Rose, Mae, Grace, and Jane are all so comfy-classic that I worry if you go with something too bold, it will seem out of place. Nova herself brings such style and pizazz to the name that she doesn't...
Oh! Roxanne and Vera need a name for a maybe-baby-sister? Hm. Do you have a middle in mind? If not, I'll play with some like Coraline and Adelaide - lovely, by the way.
Celeste Georgina ...

I'm wondering if you might like the name Junia, which is really quite uncommon but also rich and warm. I think it fits with the vintage edge of Estelle - which is beautiful, by the way - yet it's...
Love Juno! To me, Juno can take on a word-name quality, even though it clearly is not one, so pairing it with word-word names like Magnolia and Skye feels a little forced to me. I happen to love...

Oh, what great names! Off your "love" list, I'm particularly loving Eva, Leda, Cecily, Poppy, Freya, Mabel, Briony, Arcadia, and Marigold. I also noticed Melusine in the middle spot - it reminds me...
Whitney Grace is fine but Whitney seems a little 1980s to me.
Jude Andre is handsome. I love the name Jude.
Adrien Gabriel has a little too much melody to my ear, but I agree both names are...
I like Holden with the other names, too. My whole issue was that it seems "forced hipster," kind of like Atticus. I'm not even using it for the literary connection - I just like it! Maybe I should...
I guess I really don't see it as a big deal and wouldn't kick Holden off your list for this reason.
That said, if it bugs you, maybe use Holden in the middle? I think Young works best with a three...
I grew up with a girl named Willie and knew of one called Wylie. I also know an older woman whose name is Wylda. Wilder seems like the sophisticate version of these - and, hey, it's on trend as an...

1. A word - Scarlet or Quill
2. A literary character - Eliza or Archer
3. A plant - Juniper or Ash
4. A family member - Iris or James
5. A symbol/place - Caledonia or West
6. A celebrity baby -...
Eliza is "not choice," and Phoebe is suitable for a "midwife"? Interesting, but not gonna kick 'em off my list. Thanks for sharing!
I think I may have been talked out of Hollis as a first name - the comment about Merrill and Ernestine is haunting me. ;-)
I don't want such an overt nature name with Wren and Iris, so I hesitate...
That's a very interesting point you bring up! Huh. I still like Hollis, but I'm not tied to it. I feel fairly tied to Archer. I do think it fits with Eliza, Gwendolen, and Phoebe - it's got a classic...

Phew! I'm so glad you've settled it again. Don't let anyone talk you out of the name you love - it's gorgeous!
Pronouncing Marilla the English way, I suppose, a la Anne of Green Gables...
The Holly thing worries me! The not fitting doesn't, believe it or not - Hollis (and Ellis) both feel vintage boy to...
So, I've got Eliza Wren and Gwendolen Iris on my list. Then Phoebe.
Question - Phoebe Marilla or Phoebe Mariel?
(Trying to subtly honor some familial Mary-names, Marie and Marion. I know...

She sounds very much like a Hazel to me, Hazel Margery, but I wonder if perhaps that isn't unique enough for you?
I think Ruby could be a quick transition from Boo - to Roo or Rue? - and I like...

I'd nix Harper. The overt popularity next to Makena and the -er thing would bug me.
Violet is pretty but too sweet with Makena.
Margo, I can't decide. It does feel a little too rich to me next...

You have a lot of names here that could be nicknames, and probably should be with big brother Vincent Nicholas. Maisie and Daisy are both quote cutesy and both nicknames for Margaret, so try Margo in...

I agree with Bay and Lark here. Love those for you.
Also, Aven, Brynn, Blair, Ellis, Ferrin, Greer, Grey, Hollis, Jules, Logan, Padgett or Paige or Page, Quinn, Romy, Remi, Sutton, Vesper, or...
I happen to love Rosalie! Or Violet. Both echo Lillian and Eloise very well. Matilda Rosalie feels feminine, charming, and a tad glamorous. Not sure you could do better!
I like Henry John and Margo...
Huck and Magpie!
Also like Margaret "Daisy" or Laurel or Vivian.
