    I think it's cute. I have a fondness for boy-name nicknames for girls. I think either Louie (how I would spell it to avoid confusion) or Lou would work.

    My faves from your list are Spencer and Henrik. I think Oscar, Hugo, Edmund, Hiram, and Felix go nicely with the girls' names (I know some of those names might not go well with the last name, but...

    Interesting question. Dh's brother has a fn that didn't really work well and he went by his mn -- everyone calls him by the nn for his mn. So that kind of an issue has been on my radar while naming...

    Thanks everyone! I like the sounds of Ferelith and Orlaith, but I think Gwyneth would be the name dh and I would be most likely to agree on. I'm not usually fond of one-syllable names, but I like...

    I'm on the fence about Edith; it should be the perfect solution, but it just doesn't grab me.

    I like Gwyneth. Is it too tied to Gwyneth Paltrow? She's the only one I've heard of IRL.

    Miriam and Rosemary were both on our list for our first girl; she ended up being named Miriam. I had no idea until I was looking up the name meaning that Mary was the same name.

    I kind of like...

    Names like Meredith?

    I like the name Meredith, but we already have a kid with an M name and I'm trying not to repeat initials. Our girl is named M1riam. Apart from the M- start (which I love in a girl's name), I like...

    Artemis is a favourite of mine, but off the table because we already have a kid with an A name. Unfortunately, I think a number of people see it as a masculine name due to Artemis Fowl and the...

    My first instinct is to say they're too close together. I struggle with mixing up names when I'm with my daughter (M1riam) and sister (M@ren). But I think a lot of people would say that some of our...

    I wouldn't do it. I know what IBS stands for, and even if a lot of people don't, she likely would find out. Also, iBs looks like "I BS" to me. Our last name starts with an S, and I won't use a B...

    Interesting question. I have used family names, both as first and middles, but we haven't given a first name that is the first name of anyone still living. That feels a bit too close or confusing...

    I agree with labelo. Also, every generation scratches its head at the weird stuff the rising generation does, and the same goes for subcultures within the same generation. I don't understand the...

    Harvey and Harold are both names I have a hard time seeing on a kid; to me, they are in the category of old man names that are a bit too clunky to make a comeback. Of the two, I prefer Harvey.

    I think it's a strong name and goes well with your other names. Personally, I like it, and considered it as a middle name. It's one of those names that I only like in its full form; I don't like...
