Beryl? Martha? Mabel? Belva? Melba? Marvel?
My Great Aunt Myrtis had a variation of Myrtle that I have never heard elsewhere.
Well… I like all these names.
Vera I adore.
Caroline is a good name, but I am sick of seeing it on nameberry.
Lorraine I am fond of, but seems extremely dated.
Glenna is pretty though I...

Oh heavens! Jasmine and Haley are OK but so so so overused (I teach) that I would give a name that goes with Walter like Rowena.

First, I like them both.
However, they seem quite different to me.
Agatha sounds like a powerful steamship of a woman. A mystery novelist, a pushy archdeacon's wife in a Barbara Pym novel. A...
Ebony is fine, but Ivory is the tusk of a murdered elephant. To me, anyway. Too bad, as it is a lovely sounding word.

Chrysanthe would be a wonderful nickname for Chrysanthemum!
I love how the -the endings remind you of pillows. How lovely!
Have to laugh about the spy version of Ariadne. I can see that. I...

Oh yes, I agree--I don't care for Ariana or Yolanda at all.
And "ethereal but fierce" perfectly captures the appeal of this name group! They are mysterious and strong yet gorgeous-sounding.

I love this group of names:
Am I missing any?
ZOE! Can't stand the others, but love Zoe.

1. Anouk -- I just realized I don't know how to pronounce this! I prefer Anne myself, but it is not a bad name. To be honest, I picture an anorak.
2. I knew a young Elena who was highly annoying. I...
PS I do not say it like door! I like it like moor.

I think they work as middle names fine because middle names are forgiving. Personally if I were a boy I wouldn't mind these as my middle name, though I wouldn't probably jump for joy either.
James Paul flows better, but I like the name Paul better!
JP is OK. I usually dislike initial names, but I knew a Jean Paul (French boy) and liked JP on him.

Well, it could work year-round. I spent a week in October in Vermont though and it was the most incredible thing ever.
November 12th, 2014, 10:09 AM
I've always loved the state of Vermont and now love the name of Vermont. Monte or Monty could be nicknames.
If you detest it totally, no need to comment. :)

These are some great names!
November 11th, 2014, 07:29 PM
I really like your middle name choice.
Both are great names, but Wilhelmina is my favorite of the two.
Frankly, I am just tired of Matilda being so popular on nameberry. The only Mathilda I knew was a wonderful dog in my childhood. I...
I love Fenna!
I would name a daughter Fenella Rosemary and call her that as well as Fenna, Nella, and Fen.
PS It also works alone - I just also love Fenella and variety of name...

Sienna is pretty, though not lively. I like Vienna too.
Mia is a lovely name. I know it is popular but it is nice.
Neysa I can't stand, sorry.
Grace and Claire are good middle names, though I...

I sympathize, particularly as you will be the one carrying and bearing the child. I'd say tough and let's pick another name, but then I am not the most peaceful wife.
Anyway, I do love the name...
Tarquin sounds cool, sounds like Martin, is classic and under-used (in the US) and sounds manly.
What about Paul?
Kenneth? Keir? Graham? Shepherd? Tavish? Hamish? Isaac? Eben?

Do give Tess another chance someday!
I guess Theresa doesn't sound religious to me, though I am not wild about the name.
I like other T names though:
Thomasine, Thomasina, Thomasin, Tamsin...
Both are fine names, but I prefer Anne.
I've known a few snotty Audreys alas.
Anna is nice, but sounds submissive somehow while Anne seems strong.
