    I don't usually go in for matchy-matchiness, but I really like this pair. They're both such lovely words and share a certain sensibility:)

    I agree with a lot of what's been said here. I don't think kids get teased because of their names so much as kids who get teased (most of us to at least some extent, I dare say) may have their names...

    Our #2 is going to be a little Huckleberry, so I think it's an awesome choice :) As for teasing--I can take any name (first, middle, last) and turn it into something ugly, so I'm not going to let...

    I knew a woman named Bathsheba who remains one of most truly eccentric people I've ever met. She didn't just affect wackiness--it was totally who she was. I remember always feeling as though her name...

    I like Iris Emmeline...it's got a nice rhythm and a crisper feel. I don't love Avonlea, and I think it sounds kinda clunky with Iris. Maybe because both names are accented on the first syllable?

    I like Nimue Violet for its nature-y feel (I love The Mists of Avalon) and because it sort of matches her up with her sister's [flower] name. Are there any other nature/flower names you like?

    Hazel: Why do you love it?

    I'd really like to try to understand the appeal of this name. My two main associations with it (ancient neighbor lady, seeing it weirdly/incorrectly spelled by semi-literate new mother) have done...
