    First, I like them both.

    However, they seem quite different to me.

    Ebony is fine, but Ivory is the tusk of a murdered elephant. To me, anyway. Too bad, as it is a lovely sounding word.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    What about this autumnal name?

    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. :)

    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.

    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.
