    I like Dido as an alternative. Some Di names are pronounced with a "Dee" sound, (Like Dionne) so you'd want to avoid those, I think.

    I can see Zeke getting a little more popular since Z names are all the rage, but to be honest, Zeke sounds more redneck than cool to me.

    Your names don't fit a particular style. You don't have to have a style, you know. Your names are French, Irish, literary, classic, and modern.

    Do you have a name that honors family?

    I've always been of the opinion that I'd want any future kids I have to have their own unique name, but since my mother died 20 years ago, I've become very close to my father, Alfred, who goes by...

    Well, I think you're all crazy. If you're going to choose something as important as a doctor based on a name, you're insane. I know plenty of people with 'normal' names who are morons.

    I don't limit myself at all! I wonder why you think that someone must limit themselves to a particular style of name. Just because you like ice cream doesn't mean you can't also like pie.

    I think it works. Both names are not my style, but they are nice. I prefer your Janelle to the other suggestion of Janel. Eliza Jane is a little too bland.

    I don't think of them any differently than other names to be honest. Emme is a name I will probably use if I ever have a girl because it honors family, and I never thought about it being a palindrome.

    Oscar isn't a name I love, but there's nothing wrong with it. I find it a little disconcerting that your partner refuses to consider anything else. Sounds a bit controlling.

    It's unattractive sounding, and it makes me think of Melba toast. If I was honoring a Melvin, I would choose a different girl's name that started with Mel, like Melinda, or Melanie.
