For the record, I'd be very hesitant to rename (in terms of the name you will call them and put on their artwork) any child older than a year or so. Even if the younger kids can adjust quickly, it...
Love the name. I have a soft spot for Eu names! Our new baby was very nearly Euphemia.
Our surprise baby was born today (but just barely) at home. Flannery Katherine arrived at 12:32 am. I went into labor a bit early at 37.5 weeks, but my midwife let me have my homebirth since there...
Elspeth or Elise or Elinor/Eleanor or Ellery or Elena or Eloise. Or anything that ends in -elle really.

I might delay for a few months, but there's no way I wouldn't vaccinate at all. It not only puts my child at risk, but also babies too young to be vaccinated should an unvaccinated child contract...

I would say Vera as VEER-ah. I would pause more at Veira, but i'd just assume it was pronounced like the name Keira...so also VEER-ah. The only way I'd automatically say Vee-AIR-ah, would be if it...
I imagine MacAbee is not of Hebrew origin (Scots-Irish more likely), but it is identical in pronunciation to the Hebrew name Maccabee (from the Old Testament).
Having a bit of a dilemma over here. We want to use a family surname (MacAbee) for our son's middle name. It seems nitpicky, perhaps, but neither of us is crazy about the capitalization of the A. ...

It's totally normal to start getting the baby itch in your twenties. It's just a normal biological reaction to all the hormones your body produces when you are fertile. It only gets worse! But,...

I think Susannah is lovely with Samuel, though Eloise/Elliot are a bit too similar. Susannah Grace or Susannah Louise would be nice alternatives.

I love Abel. It is one of those names that is NEVER used, yet almost everyone can instantly pronounce. I would like to meet an Abel. I might pair it with a longer middle name though.

The only one I don't like at all is Kimberlyn. Kimberley is pretty dated to the 80s, and Kimberlyn to the mid-90s when people were just adding LYN to anything that moved.
Some nice Scottish...

Rahz (like OZ) uh lind. I would never think to pronounce it ROEZ.
I think Molly or Vivienne goes best with Adeline if you think you can't use Mae (which I prefer to both of those). Maybe the May spelling would differentiate it enough. Or Mae/May as a nn for...
I love John _____ combos. I think to like more surname-ish names with it, though. Any maiden names/family names that you could dig up? I also think that one or two syllable names sound best. I...

Lo (for Laurence)

I definitely have this. DH and I have been practicing shouting any prospective names. Some of them just feel odd or pretentious on the tongue. For example, we were (are) considering some double...

Love Griffin. Oliver is fine, but I see him as a sister to an Amelia or Clara, etc, not an Addison.

My favorites from your list are: Celeste Noel (totally underused name in my opinion), Scarlett Noel, and Arie Noel. I like Aria and Atlee okay (I'm assuming Atlee is a family surname). Amyrlin seems...
I really like Mary, but not as much as Anne. I like Mary as a middle a lot. If we have a girl, we'll be doing a middle name after my mother who is a Katherine Mary. It is used a lot in the South...

I really like Rosalind, prefer the nn Ros (Rahz) to Rosie, but either way is fine. Since Rosalind is a very old-fashioned name, I might pair it with something with a bit of a contemporary feel.

With Kellan and Finn, I like:
Cormac (Cormac McCarthy is one of my favorite novelists)
