I think the negative side of "a Pollyanna" is that they don't have much substance - it's like calling someone an airhead or a ditz.
I like Polly quite a lot, but I don't like Pollyanna. I would...
Love it!! Although I kind of like the Mirabel spelling more, they're both lovely. I like simple, one-syllable names best as middles.
They're both beautiful names. Imogen is a little less popular, if that matters to you. I love Georgia and Charlotte together, though... George and Charlie, maybe?! Adorable.
My five favorites:
For various reasons I can't use them, but they're lovely names deserving of their popularity.
One thing to consider is that while your daughter may not be the only Penelope on the playground - and there's no way to avoid this really, even if the name doesn't climb much higher - it has the...

I agree with the previous commenters. "Sibsets" is an overrated concept, in my opinion. (With the caveat that you don't want one sibling to stand out awkwardly from the others.) That being said,...
Sorry, that spelling is Dolores. (Which, by the way, is a lilting and underused name, IMO!)
In Nabokov's book, her name is Delores. She goes by Dolly at school and her mom calls her Lola or Lo. It's only her predatory stepdad who calls her Lolita - he invented this cutesy nickname for her...
I like Southern names, and they won't sound like hick names unless you're a hick. :D
I prefer Maybelle. I believe this was the younger sister of the protagonist in the kids' book Bridge to...

I love Magnolia, and nicknames Maggie and Nola. Nola is so elegant! However, I think you need to be 100% in love with a name to use it. Don't use Magnolia if you are so worried.

I am from the Midwest but currently live in Southern California. From my hometown I have 2 friends with kids named Miles (under 6 years old.) I also know a Declan from there, who is a baby. Where I...

I truly love them both! Have you considered a third child? ;) You really can't go wrong with either name. I love the nicknames and how they sound with Nora.
I also like Hazel Jo. I wouldn't give a nickname name as a FN, but somehow as a middle it sounds cute and sweet to me.
I love your girls' names, and Hazel may be my favorite. I have two boys and thought I was done, so I named my dog Hazel. And now I'm not done. Oh well! I get a lot of compliments on my dog's name! :D...

I like Tobias Flynn, called Toby. I like this! Toby is a great name.
I think Toby Sawyer sounds an awful lot like Tom Sawyer, and Flynn or Finn Sawyer sounds like you're naming him for...

I think I would start with fay-lee-see.

I'm with the majority that think Hattie Charlotte has a lot of Ts and not the greatest flow. I love Harriet though, and nickname Hattie.
Harriet Louise (Hattie...

I love it, and agree it sounds strong and wise. It also has a soft feel to it - he was known as the wise and just king, but also as a passionate lover. I don't know if I'd choose Court as a middle -...
It was the name of the character in Beverly Cleary's popular books: Ramona Geraldine Quimby.
I like it. My son has a friend named Gerald, and I've always found that very charming and unusual....
I like Milo of your choices. The cat thing doesn't bother me - I think it's a cool and pretty subtle connection.
I also second Jasper. This seems to fit well with Felix - both cool, zippy names.
Ahh (as in August) Veh Leen Eh
Honestly, I think Shepherd Eugene is cute. I don't love Eugene as a first name, but I think it's quirky in a nice way. If you don't love it, at least it's just a middle name. And Shepherd is a...
I know a sibling set Leo and Ari! I think it's so cute. As the other commenter said, just be prepared to get the occasional "Are you Jewish?" It's not in any way offensive. So cute. I like the names...
I love Ruth. It's classic and simple, like Jane, but just a bit softer. It's not overused. I'd use it in a heartbeat.
