Thanks for all the responses! Looks like Gemma and Naomi are the favorites. Same for me.. I go back and forth between these two all the time! Nola is still my dark horse :)

I love Maeve - its also on my list. I also like Tess without the -a. Also love pp suggestion of Ruby or Nora.
Great names - tough choices! :)
We pronounce it Mee-ra :) and I do have to correct people on occasion.
That's my hesitation with Naomi. I would say Nay-oh-mee, but I know others would say Nye-oh-me.
Baby #3 is due in March and slowly but surely I'm narrowing the girls' names...
We are down to four -
Which is your fave? Big sibs are Mira and Benjamin..
Due with #3 in March. We don't know the gender, but have our boy's name (almost) locked in.
Girls' names are MUCH harder for me. Looking for something that pairs well with big sis Mira, and big...
I'm expecting baby #3 early next year. My DD is Mira Annabella and I have a son, Benjamin Liam.
Because Mira is fairly uncommon, I keep thinking I need her potential sister's name to be equally...
I'm due in a couple months with baby #2 - a boy. I had a looong list of girl names, but nearly nothing for team blue. I find myself drawn to names that are short and stylish, yet still clearly...

I think most Joesphines are called Josie, and although its the most popular from your list I don't think its overused at all.
I do prefer Bernadette nn Birdie, but Bernadine is still wearable....

Ooh, I'm digging Elena, Maeve, Alma, and Ivy. I knew I could count on you berries! :)
Keep 'em coming ladies!

There are quite a few options that can get you the nn Ellie, but are more formal and less popular than Ellie by itself. You don't have to use Eleanor or Eloise.
I know a little Ellery who...

I'm at kind of a loss with my current girls list. Nothing feels right anymore so I want to start from scratch :)
Currently, our frontrunners are Nola, Gemma, and Esme (or Emme). Longshots are...

Happy birthday Mabel!! :)
At the top of my list today is Esme Ardis Rose... close runner-ups, Ivy Marilyn, Gemma Arianna, and Arden Aurora. A boy would be Archer James.
ps: DD is Mira Annabella

My DD is Mira Annabella.. so I'm partial to that one. :)
Others on my list:
My grandmother passed away a year ago. She was Ardis Marilyn. I love her dearly and I've been trying to come up with a way to honor her without actually using the name Ardis. My husband and I both...

Just wanted to throw in Mira as a possibility. My DD is Mira Annabella ...and coincidentally, our surname begins w M as well.
FWIW, I voted for Milena, but all the choices are lovely. 2nd place...

Opal gmv! Its underused and really lovely.
Esme is a name that's on my list (along with Isla), but here's the thing that throws me from the combo: The -s in Isla is silent, but in Esme it isn't....

Worst celeb names by far are:

If only her mn wasn't Crimefighter, I wouldn't hate it. Or if Inspector was spelled correctly... but...

I've always loved the idea of Sorcha. When I read it, it’s really lovely. But when I say it, I can only think of "orca" as in a whale. Perhaps that’s my own pronunciation issue though... I really...

Thanks for all the great feedback everyone! I agree Twilight isn't exactly Harry Potter :) but you make a good point in that it certainly does/did have an effect on naming trends. Far fewer people...

My doc just started me on clomid, so naturally instead of obsessing over one name, I'm now focused on twins. :)
Two names that we've agreed on (separately) are Aria Rosalie, and Esme Susannah. All...
Ava Marigold is one I keep talking myself out of due to popularity... but I love the combo.
