I went to college with an Etain and I always thought it was a beautiful name.
I have a cousin named Mary Philomena who we call Mary Phil. I always thought it was cute and unique.
There is a movie from the '80s or early '90s called "Shag" in which Pheobe Cates plays a southern girl from the 1960s named "Carson." When I saw this movie as a kid I decided that I LOVED Carson for...

I notice flower and Shakespearean themes in your likes...
so what about
It makes me think of that old Don Johnson show Nash Bridges.
No no no. I think the parents must have fallen into the trap of "it ends with an "a" so we can use it for a girl." It seems very masculine to me though.
Iris Ellen was born 3-6-12
I had a list of 4 approved names and my husband chose her name from the 4 when he saw her.
I was in the birth tub holding her and he whispered "her name is Iris"

ooh, I LOVE Josepha. I've never heard that before. I love Josephine as well, but Josepha has such a cool, unique ring to it. And the nns you have are great too.
My other favorite from your list...
I immediately thought of Harriet the Spy. It took me a minute to get what you were saying, and that's only because you specifically asked about the combo, so I already had it in my head that there...
What about Finnick from The Hunger Games. Or from Star Wars, Skye (like Skywalker) or Owen (uncle Owen). I also love Leif.
Is Loki too ridiculous? I've always had a secret like of this name :)

hahahaha! This is the best - I could not agree more. The overly girly names drive me insane. The first time I heard Arabella I thought it was a joke.
I feel like the only reason this name is on the radar now is because of the Hunger Games. Even if that's not how you came across it, that's sort of the association, and will be even more so after...
I don't really care for the "Tur" sound starting this name. It makes me think "Turd." It's probably just me though--I have a 6 and 7 year old who are unfortunately obsessed with bathroom humor...
Tina Fey's first daughter is Alice Zenobia. With this name and her new daughter Penelope Athena she is very "nameberry."
I am 35 weeks pregnant and we are not deciding on a name from our list until we see the baby. This has prompted people to talk to me about "crazy" names they have heard. First and foremost is, of...

I found out with both of mine. The wait until the 20 week ultrasound where they can tell was suspense enough! My thing is, I don't want my doctor and the ultrasound tech knowing information about...
I have always had a long and very irregular cycle (30-60 days). Like you, I missed some periods when younger b/c I was underweight. When TTC, it's a little frustrating to have an irregular cycle...
I love this name for a boy! I think Andy could easily be a nickname. I've heard this pronounced both ways, but I think if you are in the US, you will mostly hear "Ann-ders."
It's pronounced "Zan-THEE" I love this name. It's on my long list.
I think it's super cute. The main character in the movie "Young Adult" is a 30something named Mavis. When I saw the movie I started thinking about what a hidden gem the name was. I think it's...

one more thing, "Mist" means "crap" or "dung" in German and it's sometimes used as an exclamation, like "oh crap!"

I know it's super popular on these boards but I cannot stand Arabella. It just sounds ridiculous, like you are trying to name your baby to become a socialite or a princess.
I also don't get Ava. ...
