From my Norwegian lists, it would most certainly be Liva for a girl. For a boy I think it would be Iver...
I'm struggling more with my general lists....
Possibly Edmund and Helena (Ned and...
Hazel Nancy is better than Hazel Zelma, because that repeating -zel- bit is sort of too much.
I'm not overly fond of Hazel Nancy either. Both names have two syllables, stress on the first one and...

@Polly - Lovely to hear your thoughts!
Regarding Rosa, it's one of the names that work best (better even) in Norway. Rosa is a slightly archaic word for -rose- or rather 'the rose', often used in...

I love Casimir ^^
Would totally consider him usable.
Don't see anything wron with a 4 syllable surname either, except maybe try to avoid a five syllable middle... :P
I could never have that many children, although it's nice to get to use all the names o.O
Casimir + Balthasar | BB
Emmanuel + Ambrose | BB
Blythe + Mercy | GG
Margo + Gloria | GG...

First things first, you have a lot of good names on your list, it's mostly the combos that don't feel great to me. Most of the names on the list that I love are paired with names I'm neutral about...

I guess I pronouce it KON-stan-teen also, for some reason I've been wanting to stress the last syllable but I don't actually do it.
I was rather surprised to hear the name pronounced to rhyme with...
Elm is so sweet, but Elmer sort of ruins that for me.
I love Alma and Elmo though ^^ I always go for the quirky, soft, magical alternative though, so Elmer is a bad fit with my general style......

Just dropping by with some second middle suggestions :)
Raphaela Winter Agnes
Raphaela Winter Jolie
Raphaela Winter Jane
Raphaela Winter Alice
Raphaela Winter Isobel
Raphaela Winter Ondine
I just heard this name the other day in the film 'True Grit' and wondered why it's never been on my radar before ^^
I think the reason I haven't noticed it before is because the -on...

Does anyone else care to offer their opinion?

@PrivacyPlease - Thanks for stopping by :) Of your suggestions, Lumina, Evadne, Evanthe, Ariadne and Ione have all been up for consideration. Luella is sweet, but I recently bumped Willa off the...
I have too many favourites to nickname them all, but doing just the ones from my signature *adjusts signature* it would be sort of like this:
Emerence - Wren, Em, Merry
Eulalie - Lalie

In Norwegian, I wouldn't say lee or lay, more a pure -eh- sound swiftly followed by the o. Much like the Spanish way but without the rolled R at the end, and a clear -o- sound in -nor.
I prefer Hugo to Nicolai.
Hugo's meaning is awesome, and I think two syllables is better than three alongside monosyllabic Vaughn.
I too pronounce it hell-en-a, mostly because the first place I truly noticed it was in the film MirrorMask where they use this pronunciation.
My favourite nickname is Nell, so it makes sense in that...
I know brothers Theo and Ivo :) I remembered the mother considering Leona for a potential girl to continue the O theme...
Then there's Mir@, M@rkus and M@riell.
Don't know any more...

I don't like how the R's run together in Winter Raphaela, but my vote goes to Raphaela Winter regardless...
Raphaela could be nicknamed Phae to avoid the Raphie/Raph problem. ^^
I don't like...

Emerence or Vieno are the most unusual
Helena or Jane are the most traditional
Vieno is a unisex name, thus the most masculine
Ophelia is the most feminine
Isis is sadly the most daring

I think it sort of depends on what you're going for...
If it's for sisters:
Ophelia and Penelope are perfectly matched in history and literature
Ophelia and Leonor both have a mysterious air to...
Perenna has not been mentioned, she's very beautiful!
Persephone and Persis are favourites of mine, and I love the suggestion of Perla, Parisa and Peridot.
It's not the same, but I thought I...
I also would never use the two for sisters, even if I had 5 Margarets I wanted to honour. I'm sure not all honourable women in your life are named Margaret, so I would use the...
Love: (I would use either of these in a heartbeat!)
Ophelia - Would love to call her Phae/Fae.
Magnolia - Nola is my preferred nickname.
Ottilie - I struggle to picture a 30 year old...
I think putting some distance between Cleo and Pear would be best, or it just sounds like au pair.
I would never go for Pear myself, but I like the family connection and I'm really fond of naming...
