Like Zara, I pronounce it "ee-NEHZ" (or "ee-NEZ"), though I did have an Aunt Inez who was called "EYE-nez" (with that emphasis), which makes me shudder.
Wynn is DH's middle name and his father's middle as well. I didn't continue the tradition with Henry because the name didn't have "special" family meaning, it was just the surname of one of PaPa's...
Congratulations! I love his name so much that I used it for my own boy! ;) I'm sure your Henry James will wear it well! Your girls have gorgeous names, too! Enjoy!
p.s. My baby girl was born on...

bump for update! :)
Agnes Josephine Bliss Lastname arrived on the 25th. We're as proud as can be!
There was a bit of hesitation on DH's part after receiving some negative reactions to her name when she was born, but...

There aren't words to express such sorrow. I'm so sorry you had to say goodbye to your baby girl, and I'm saying a prayer that God would bring you comfort. ((((hugs))))

Eee! I knew I could count on you! I love all of the ideas!
DH is out running some last-minute errands ;) so I'll show him your suggestions when he gets home.
Henry really loves Josephine (and...

Update: Posted in Birth Announcements! :)
Hey all! You were so helpful with this post that I thought I'd pick your brains some more!
We haven't decided 100% that Baby's name will be Agnes,...
Rosaline is usually pronounced ROZ-a-line, not ROSE-a-line, at least in Love's Labour's Lost.
I must prefer it, just for that connection, to Rosalie, though both are lovely!

It is on my own list, along with Alice (which I am honestly "over" and only hanging onto for DH lol) and Agnes. But I think Viola is a perfect sister for Rupert, Arthur, and...
Please do not use Holden & Phoebe! I can't believe anyone would go along with that. Come on, people! Pick up a book!
Ruby gets my vote because it's similar enough to Phoebe to sound like a great...
I wouldn't let the initials stop me! It's not too horrendous a monogram, and Giselle Avalon is worth overlooking it!
Also? Leo Darcy? Swoon!
What Mischa said! :D
I have a personal hang-up against first & middle names with blending sounds, so I don't love Willa with an L-middle.
BTW, Willa was on our list and we also have the same...
aww, I'm sad you have to cross off Rosaline. She's one of my favorite Shakespeare girls!
I love them all! Great choices!
Cordelia is one of the prettiest names ever, IMO, but I cannot use it due to its Shakespearean usage. Too bloody sad. It's such a gorgeous name!
Greta is a new favorite of mine, so she gets my vote!
For a nickname, what about Pearl? They both come from Margaret and its variations.
I think I'd have voted Clara Beatrix, though I actually prefer Greta. I just don't like an A-ending first name with an A-beginning middle. I'm weird like that. ;)
BTW, Greta and Pearl have the...

I adore Lucia with Josef!
I vote Lila since it's the most underused of these, but Charlotte and Emma are ultra classic so they'll never "feel" trendy. You can't go wrong with any of them, but I definitely prefer Kate over...
I am a hardcore Star Wars movie fan but I've never read the books so I had no idea about Mara Jade. If you're okay with Jade as a middle name -- SW connection or not -- and he is okay with Mara, I...
I voted Lila since Isla is surging in popularity, whereas Lila has been around for quite some time and doesn't seem so "flash-in-the-pan"-ish to me.

Is there a poll missing???
Some duplicates, but here's what I can come up with:
I pronounce it much like Dahlia, so it sounds like TAL-ya or TALL-ya.
Before I even saw your list I thought "Clara Juliet!" I also like Clara Josephine.
