Interesting. A close friend of mine's daughter is Emmeline - Em - uh - line. I haven't met another Emmeline so I don't know it any different. All of our friends started calling her Emme right off the...

Thank you or the suggestions. Love Manon, Margot, Maire (is this said My-ra?), Marin and Maren. I was worried about too many 'n' s in the name since our surname ends in 'n' but those names work well...

DH and I still in search of a middle name for first name Susannah to honor my grandmother, Marie Jeanne (Mary Jane) who was French / French Canadian and was born and passed in the month of October....

Funny. Top choice for me would be susannah margaret. Of your options, Margaret Sylvie.

Margaret Anne. I like how you've still combined both grandmothers into the nn, but "Meg" is also adorable in its own.

Luke or Jack. I've never been a fan of Liam. I think the "k" sound at the end of both Luke and Jake help separate it from a 1-syllable surname so that they two don't completely blend into one name....
My niece is 'Lainey' after Grandmother 'Elaine'. I call her 'Lain' often, only because it's easier to say quickly. But I've also thought of 'Lane' as a very masculine, likable name for a boy.

Bridget. Love Bridget. I think Margot and Bridget have very different 'personalities'. Bridget is fun loving, spunky and sweet while Margot is more refined, chic and demure. Both pretty names, but I...

Everett and Ansel are my favorites. Both handsome names.
Oddly enough, I grew up with a Soren who was a girl therefore always think of this name as feminine.
My DH and I are months away from TTC. And we are already set on our boys name and the first name for a girl - Susannah.
Which middle to honor my late grandmother Marie Jeanne/Mary Jane? She was...

Thank you. I feel like everyone eventually gets a nn in his or her life. Was hoping to just get a head start so that doesn't turn out to be Gus or Auggie. If it ever comes the time, I'm sure my...

If my husband and I have one son, he will be Nathaniel Bennett. If we have two sons, we really like August. Problem is, I'm not a fan of nn Gus or Auggie. We planned to call him August (Jameson or...
Definitely Cash-uss, which sounds very strong and masculine in my opinion. Cass-e-us makes me think of the girl's name Cassie.

Love Greta and Hazel.
Svea said "Svay-ah" or "Svee-ah"? I like the former.
Don't like Ingrid (hear 'Ingrate') or Geneva (but I like Genevieve, nn Evie).
Another vote for Rose as the first. Although, I'm a huge fan of the nn "Libby" if you opted for Elizabeth! Both beautiful choices.

I'm on the Isobel bandwagon, as well. It makes the name more sophisticated than frilly, although equally as feminine and romantic.
Wesley nn Wes
Everett nn Rett
Gwyneth nn Gwen/Gwennie
Juliette nn Lettie
Love River. A guilty pleasure of mine. It would be at the top of my list it if I didn't have a nature surname.
I love the sound of Wilder but would concerned that the nickname "Wild" would be...
I love the name Ingrid and find it strangely soft and feminine with an undertone of strength.
My hangup is that I unfortunately always also hear "ingrate" when I say it. "Ingrid the Ingrate". ...

Elowen Aoife Rose. I would also like Amoret Rose, but the double A with Amoret and Ann makes the two names blend.
I have a French ancestry and speak basic French, but I live in the States where all of the spellings would likely be pronounced the same. Vivienne would be my choice based on the look more so than...

I'm going to jump on the Zelda Ruth train, but I do have to say that Simone Marilka would also be stunning, given it's sentimentality.

Bennett and Graham
Bram and Gwen
Bethany and Gwyneth

I know both are "made up" spellings, but I wonder if Elenna or Ellenna would get you the pronunciation you're looking for.
I agree with the recommendation of Helena (pronounce He-LEN-a) with nn...

As a fellow Green (the color spelling), I have kissed goodbye and accepted the letting go of all names associated with a color. Ruby Greene feels like a contradiction. As does Pearl Green or Marigold...
