I was that way, too, with girls' names for a very long time. But then, through literature and movies, I expanded my love of girls' names. While I immediately fell in love with every other boys'...

Are Edith (nn Edie) and Ada too close for sisters? Edith would probably go by Edie most of the time and Ada would just be Ada.
I love both names (Edie a little more) but I'm afraid that they're...

I second Hugh Thomas. Hugh is one of those names that seems strong and masculine (plus the meaning is wonderful!), but because it's so short and whispy, it has a gentility to it. Hugh Patrick and...
@mauvebird: I think the younger generations of Americans call them flip-flops (I do and everyone my age (20s) does too), but my parents and grandparents all call them thongs. Makes for some awkward...

Your taste in names is fabulous! Here are my favorite from your list:
1. Edith (especially with the nn Edie!)
4. Cecilia (I like the nn Celia with this, not CeCe)
I used to be so iffy about Jane for the reasons you mentioned. But, the more I read Jane Austen, the more I fell in love with Jane. It flows off the tongue so nicely and it's an endearing classic. ...

I don't see a problem with it (I'm catholic too)! It's a nice, refreshing name to hear. Traditionally, at least one name had to be a saint's name and I actually think there is a st. Tobias!...
I absolutely adore Edith! It's my favorite girls name, mostly because of the super cute nickname Edie. I, too, like longer middles with it. Here are some that I really like:
What about the nn Ike for Michael (as in, not Mike but Ike). I never really liked the name Ike, but as of late, it's been seriously growing as an alternative to Michael.
Or what about...
I've been crushing on the name Benedict lately! However, as an American, there is some hesitation about the name thanks to the traitor Benedict Arnold. One would think over 230 years would be enough...
I like these with Cora:

What about Eli as a compromise between Elias and Elijah? Others similar to the latter two: Eliezer, Elliott (and all of its spelling combos), Elisha, or even Ellery.
From your list, I love...

I'd like four, two of each.
Edith "Edie" Cecilia
Agnes "Aggie" Elizabeth
Backups: Jasper Robert for a boy and Honor Margaret for a girl

I like Elliott James (although James is a really common "filler middle" but it does have a nice flow!)
Since Elliott has 3 syllables, I would stick to 1 or 2 in the middle. I like Elliott George...
I'm not British, but I quite like it! There was a character named Thatcher Grey on "Grey's Anatomy" and I thought his name was quite interesting. I think it depends on what middle name you decide...
Would a sibset consisting of Edith and Edmund be too close? Edith begins with an "eee" sound, while Edmund begins with an "eehhh" sound, but the fact that they both have an "Ed-" beginning makes me...

Daughter would be Edith Cecilia and son would be Robert Michael.
I'm really into 1920's names these days...so vintage and lovely :D
I was born during Christmastide (early January) and my name is Natalie. I appreciate that my name has a connection with a significant time of year. Also, it doesn't hurt that Christmas is my...
I really like Lucy Regina. It sounds very classic and more sophisticated than Lucy Jane.
If you want another Marian connection, what about Lucy Maria? Maria has more weight than Mary in the...

A short, strawberry blonde with green eyes and loads of freckles. I picture her with glasses and her hair up in a high pony-tail. She's reserved around strangers and the life of the party around...
Say: Hello young ladies!
Think: Vivian is a classic name and Hazel is a new guilty pleasure. Great choices!
These are my sons, Fulton Michael and Eli James and this is my daughter, Lucy Claire.
I would have been Jack Deon (dee-ohn) if I had been a boy. Deon was my great-grandfather's name and my grandfather's middle. Also, my dad and grandpa both have the initials J.D.
My mom also...
