We know boys whose names are Christopher and Jonathan, and they go by their full names. It's never been an issue. I can't imagine calling them Chris or Jon-it's just not who they are. I don't think...
Jane-classic and cool
Thalia-love the sound, positive association with the person I know with this name
Eleanor-classic, great nicknames-El, Nora
Least favorite girls:...
I've read that Chelsea Clinton was named after the Joni Mitchell song "Chelsea Morning".

I've worked with kids for many, many years, but have only come across one:
Malisha (pronounced "Melissa". Go figure)
Not spelled the same, but reminds me of McGill University in Canada.
Both names are nice.
One thing that does stick out to me is the sound of Haven Olivia. When you say it together, it sounds like "Haven Nolivia" or "Haveno Livia" due to the last consonant/first...
My DD is Lauren. She's almost 20, and there were no other Lauren's in her classes in K-12, though there are a few more now that she's in college.
I think it's a classic name, rather than dated.

DH liked Gabrielle, but our last name ends with double L's, so it was difficult to say and didn't sound right.
My sister-in-law is named Leonie. She pronounces it Lee-OH-knee.
I'm curious about other ways it might be pronounced, as I've only heard it said this way.
I really like Emilio

I had never heard Avery for a girl until recently. The first time I heard Avery was in the book Charlotte's Web, and it was a male character. Fern's brother is named Avery. I really like the name!
Excellent point and well said! I totally agree with you.
Mave is too close to Maeve. I think Maven could work for a boy.
My association with Larkspur is a town in Northern California, in Marin County. Never heard it as a person's name, but I think it would be a cool middle name.
Nivea is the face cream I've used for the past 40 years. Please don't name your daughter that!!
It's important to me that my kids are named after a relative who has passed away-this is tradition in my religion.
After that, no negative associations. I worked in schools for several years, and...
Another vote for Wren!

Several of my older relatives who grew up in Brooklyn and Queens pronounce names that end in "a" as an "er". For example, Linda is "Linder", Pamela is "Pameler".
The two Adair's I've met were both female. I didn't realize it was a unisex name.
I love how Blythe looks, but when it's spoken, it sounds like the person has a lisp.

We've had 3 hamsters. The first two were Nibblet and Petal, from one of DD's favorite children's books. The last was supposed to be Mia (Mia Hamster) but when we found out it was a male, Mia became...
