Depends on the name and how Disney used it. A tv show aimed at very young kids won't be the next Frozen. And a name like Elena is so classic that it won't become strictly a Disney name, much like I'd...
They are both beautiful. I usually like names with options, but I ended up voting for Anna. It has such elegance and simplicity, it's easy to spell and say, and it can travel anywhere in the world....

Yes, that does ruin, which is a shame because Mary-Jane is a great name. If he wants a comic book/superhero name, maybe Gwen? You could even make it short for Gwendolyn or Gwendolen - then it's a...
It feels like half a name to me, except that I can't think of a name that ends in Brienne! I do like -enne endings though. I don't watch/read GoT and unlike Daenarys(sp?) and a few others, I'd never...
I always love Del names for girls. This is okay, but I prefer Delfina, Delphina and Delphine. The Philadelphia thing didn't hit me at first because I was saying it "Del FEE uh" instead of "DEL fee...
I made my confirmation when I was 10, and I was already a big name nerd! But I wish I'd been older because I would have chosen differently - not because of the name, but the saint. (Agnes, FWIW. My...
I never used to like unisex or non-standard (surname, place) girl names until I started coming here and seeing all these cool names! I love all of these. Wynn and Cove works great. One syllable, not...
It's graceful and pretty. I've always loved Cecile, and Celine feels very similar. There's a slight association with Dion but it's not like Elvis or Beyonce. Dion is also not as ubiquitous as she was...
Avery flows best. I don't dislike Reese, but Avery just GOES.
Other than Avery, I like Delaney, Donnelly, Hadley, Flannery (the last 2 fit with your American lit theme!) and Ainsley. I guess I...
I've heard of Vicka, which is cute. Vita or Ria, maybe?
I like the Vicky spelling best. It looks the most even and standard. It's not the trendy nickname anymore, but I think it's still usable!
Flanna / Flannery
Since you've gone with a few different red inspirations - a gemstone, a flower - another red inspiration could be names meaning fire or fiery:...
Lucia is so beautiful, and it gives me the same vibe as Sophia without the popularity. I can't understand why it isn't used more!
Yet, if you still love Sophia more, that's fine. I really don't...
If you love it most, it is the one for you!
Going off your criteria:
-timeless (in SSA Top 1000 every year since it started in 1880)
-easy to spell and pronounce...
I don't love the sound of Charlynn but I love why you'd use it! A thought: Caroline/Carolyn are female versions of the name Charles. Carolyn also combines Charles and Lynn.
I love Louella!
Marigold was on my list until Downton! But I don't think it will get trendy. I had Marigold Kathleen, Marigold Anne, Marigold Brigid, Marigold Adelaide and Marigold Lillian. All are family names I'd...
Presley fits the style of your other kids' names, but I'd avoid having both girls end in the lee sound. Teegan fits well. If the 'ee' in both girls' names feels like too much, use the Teagan...

Bailey. Not only is it the most traditional, I think it looks the nicest: the most complete and least pointy or fussy. I say them all BAY-lee. My sister's family does have a dog Bailey and it sounds...
Oh, I love Ralph and Martha so much! I take it Martha isn't your SO's favorite? If not Martha, maybe another Mar name like Mary, Margaret or Mara. Or May Martha - May sounds nice and fresh as a first...
They're both gorgeous. Eleanor is slightly less common, but Elisabeth feels less popular than the numbers indicate because there are nicknames for every possible personality. I'm also partial to the...
I'd go with Stassia or Stasya, or maybe Stasia, because I think people might say Stacia as STAY-shuh. Also then it won't look like you're trying to do "fancy Stacy." I wouldn't assume it was made up....

Hmm. I think Riley/ Rylie sounds a bit too similar to Haylee, with the Y in the middle and the "lee" ending. If you love it more than everything else it's okay, but if you aren't in love with it I'd...
Indigo is a GP of mine, I love the O ending. I also love Indie as a nickname for any name ending in inda or inta, like Lucinda and Aminta.
Between Indie Rose and Indiana Rose, I like Indie Rose...
This is an easy one: Molly originally was, and for centuries has been, a nickname for Mary and Margaret.
As a Molly myself, it feels silly to make it a nickname for the "wrong" names since there...

I've heard people use nonsense phrases that the name rhymes with to explain them to people. "It's Cassia, it rhymes with 'pass me a' (item)"?
For years I assumed this was pronounced CASS-ee-ah and...
