    I think Memphis is a fine name on its own, but it's not really the style of your other two children's names. Memphis very clearly reads as a "place name" to me (much like naming your kind Boston,...

    I don't think having a common first name is a big deal. It can be a hassle, though if you have a really common first-middle-last combo, because you will get confused by other people with the same...

    I love Nicholas! It's a great name. A second choice would be Nikolas, which reads as an international variation to me. I think you should choose the spelling that is predominant where you live....

    Seth is the first soft-sounding boy's name that came to my mind.

    If you would choose the name for its own sake no matter what month your baby was born in, then it's a good choice for a name. They should ask themselves, if their little girl was born premature and...

    Like some others I thought Leifur was the easiest based on spelling, but I actually got it wrong when you revealed the correct pronunciation. Kjartan I pronounced correctly by sight and if I could...

    I am unfamiliar with this name and thought it was just a misspelling of the boys' name Simon. I think it's really unlikely you'll ever get the intended Sih-MEEN pronunciation unless the person...

    Anything that ends in -nette could get you to Nettie as a nickname (and I do think Nettie makes a better nickname than a full name).

    Annette
    Antoniette
    Jeanette
    Lynette
    Minette

    Of these,...

    Out of curiosity, what are the seven names from which you got Margot Sophie Anneliese?

    I am interested to see your methodology because I'm stumped at ways to mash up these names.

    I can see it working better in a book (where you can read it and give your own pronunciation) than in real life. In fact, your own real-life experience has taught you that people don't hear or...

    Alair looks made-up to me (even if it's not actually a new invention). I would prefer Adair or Blair.

    I think a 1- or 2-syllable boy's name would sound great with big sisters Maeve and Rose. If you start verging into 3+ syllables territory, it might feel like you gave your son "more name" than you...

    I do not think that Icarus is usable as a first name because the story of Icarus has only negative connotations. (The sound of Icarus, as you said, is not an insurmountable problem.)

    The most popular spelling in the U.S. is Brayden (#48 in 2013). The second most common is much less popular, Braden (#336). I would use one of these two spellings, and I think they are easy to...

    *You* may feel this way about names, but there's no telling what your child will think about his or her name. I think it is the better thing to do to give the kid options; they may turn out to love...

    The only popular name you listed is Violet. There is no way to argue that Viola and Winter are popular names; last year there were only 174 Violas and 418 Winters born in the US...compared with more...

    I think the first name that is paired with Lou should have two syllables and be accented on the first syllable---just like the rhythm of Emma Lou. Here are some options that fit that pattern:
