    No, augusta_lee. I posted a similar request - once - several years ago, and got a handful of responses. I've been through the archives, and was looking for a personalized response based on our...

  3. Looking for Nature Names for Girls (we're picky!)

    We're currently expecting #4, and it's our second girl. Our boys have family names with unusual middle names, and our daughter has an uncommon nature name with a family middle. We've decided we can...

    I agree with saoirser. Why make it a harder name to wear by spelling it one way but insisting it's pronounced another? I knew a Johnni who said it was pronounced John-uh. She was an adult...

    I prefer Margot. I feel like Margo looks like you dumbed it down for people. Margaux is just asking for it to be misspelled.

    Honestly, I think it's a fine name, and I think laughing about anyone's name choice (whether the child has been more or not) is incredibly rude. However, you are very, very unlikely to get this...

    If she likes Bronte, consider Jane Eyre. Totally cool (in my opinion) and the middle name Eyre turns Jane from something plain into something totally unexpected.

    I'm not liking any of the names on the list, but I really don't like Skandar. It reminds me of a cross between dander and scandal. If I had to choose, it would be Leon or Caedmon.

    Alfiejoe -

    My mother had regular migraines with I was very young, and I can just remember being told that she needed to rest, and we turned off the lights and didn't make a sound. Even at 5 or 6,...

    Like others have said, if your ultrasound was at 20 weeks, it's extremely rare to get it wrong. It's when it's earlier than that (some technicians make a guess as early as 13 weeks) that the gender...

    Nationally, I think Ruby's popularity is waning, or at least flatlining. I don't live in a hipster enclave, but I'm in a large metropolitan area and have yet to meet a Ruby under 90. Sawyer has never...

    Carter is ridiculously trendy. Archer not as much right now, but I think (based on the numbers) that we're at the beginning of the explosion. Clark is rising on the charts - but that rise is...

    The absolute easiest answer, of course, would be Sary. Then at least she can say, "It's Sary - like Mary with an S." I think all spellings are doomed to be mispronounced, but this would be the...

    How Popular is Briar ... really?

    I know reading Nameberry can skew one's perception of what is popular. Briar is on a slooow climb upward right now, though it did see a jump from 70 girls in 2010 to 101 in 2011. But I see it on here...

    Honestly, I think if you're trying to avoid trendy, either name could give you trouble. Graham is #255 and Everett is #257, so they are VERY close, with extremely similar upward trends. I think...

    I think it's one of the cruelest things you can do to a small child. I can't imagine punching unnecessary holes into your child's ears to fulfill your own sense of vanity. Horrible.

    I love the sound, but there's just something odd to me about the spelling. Not sure why. I don't think I'd have trouble with a Mirabel. I don't love the spelling Lilabelle either. Maybe Lilabell? No,...
