    I'm one of those who thinks that Alexandra is entirely classic, not dated -- but also that Alexis (for girls) and Alexa read more trendy and thus are more likely to feel time-stamped.

    I love Chiara (so much that at one point I really wanted to adopt it as a middle name!) But yeah, definitely with a K sound at the beginning, and the stress on the AHR syllable.

    I have a friend whose mother is Calice (pronounced ca-LEESE, pretty much exactly like you're doing). I like it a lot. Not totally sure about the "Caliece" spelling, which might confuse me if I saw...

    Then obviously you know best! :)

    That's so interesting, because I had truly never come across it being used that far back; all the sources I'd seen only listed it as a place name. I wonder if...

    I love the name Alix, and it's one of the front runners for our daughter (coming in two weeks!). My husband and I were talking about the image we had of the name, and bluejuniper's description is...

    Oh, you're of course absolutely right that Margaux long predates Ms. Hemingway! It is a region of France in the Aquitaine, famous for its wines. But it was never traditionally used as a girl's name...

    To be perfectly honest, the alliteration itself doesn't bother me at all, but if I were a grade-school kid I would desperately want to keep it a secret that my first two initials were P.P. So, no...

    I would pick Francesca in a heartbeat over Fairrah. Fairrah just seems kind of odd to me, sorry.

    Lynda or Lyndall are the only other Lyn- names I can think of offhand that haven't been mentioned....

    I like it very, very much!

    Caveat: I think you will naturally get people pronouncing it either with two short A's (air-ee-add-nee) or two broad ones (ah-ree-ahd-nee), so your preferred...

    I like them all but Calla, Isadora, or Margo are my favorites.

    I seem to be the only person who prefers Margo to Margaux, though Margot is my favorite. (The thing about Margaux is that it is not...

    I'm in the US and a big Downton Abbey fan (they show it on PBS here), so it would probably be enough for me personally to tip the scales away from Edith. I don't think it would be a big deal in...

    I only know it as a Russian nickname for Alexander, and am thus only personally familiar with it for boys. On the other hand, Sasha is used equally for Alexander and Alexandra, so I suppose there is...

    I agree with a PP -- I saw Narissa and first misread it as Narcissa. But Nerissa is truly lovely: the combo vibe of Shakespearean + sea nymph is pretty great.

    Sylvie is so lovely! A little sleeker and more polished than Sadie, I think. June is a very nice middle, but I would also be pretty enthusiastic about Sylvie Amelia, Sylvie Juliet, or even Sylvie...

    I'm betting that the Joan Holloway character on Mad Men is going to do a lot to revamp the name's "frumpy" image. Joan Felicity is a really elegant combo, I think.

    Oh, no, definitely Cora. I don't think the superfluous H adds substance, honestly -- it's just going to make it more confusing for everyone.

    I like Starling Roxanna Blythe, for a couple of reasons:

    For the first middle: I think Starling is such a strong and unusual nature name that combining it with Summer or Skye or any other nature...
