Thanks for all the feedback :) I'm liking the suggestion of Maeve Perpetua. I'm young enough the Bridget Jones thing doesn't come to mind and doesn't bother me much.
While Alice Perpetua is still a...

Una, Valo and Wyatt
I really like Maxwell but the popularity of Max puts me off, and I think Wells is just adorable. WDYT of Wells on its own or as a nickname for Maxwell?
Well, yes, I hear 'perpetual' too, but that doesn't bother me particularly, not if it's in middle place. Does anyone have suggestions for other first names?

I'm trying to form my (ridiculously long) list into combos right now. It struck me that I really have no process, I just swap names around until something "sounds right" - so I was...
I know the NB description touches on how unwieldy Perpetua is, but I really like the meaning, it makes me think of loyalty and determination, etc. I'd only consider it as a middle,...

I absolutely love Blade's Antoine Raphael and Cassia Viviane Noor.
What do you think of Valentine for a boy? I'm far from having kids, if I ever decide to, but I'd definitely consider using it as a middle and maybe as a first eventually. I'd love to hear what...

I'm from the States, so this might not be of help to you, but I've never heard of the dairy company before. Arla is lovely. I think most of these have been suggested already, but here are my favorite...
I've been crushing on Lucia lately (after a visit to the island of St. Lucia) and I was wondering what the most common pronunciation was: Loo-sha, Loo-chee-a, or Loo-see-a. I prefer the first one,...
Your names are lovely, solid choices that are distinctive and will stand out from the crowd while still reflecting good taste. They are drawn from many backgrounds, which makes me think you are...
What do you think of Vincent? I've just added it to my boy's list- I really like the sound, plus it honors two favorite artists of mine: painter Vincent van Gogh and poet Edna St. Vincent Millay.
1. Tess Ofelia, definitely.
2. Tess Ofelia Jane, but I like Helene better than Jane
3. Now that you mentioned the heh-lay-neh pronunciation, I'd say that, but I read it as heh-lane, like Elaine...
Love it :) Very cute nickname. There's also Finola, if you wanted a more direct route to Fin, but I think Fiona nn Fin definitely works.
How do you feel about Muriel? Am I the only one who thinks it seems like it should be making a comeback? Is Muriel making a comeback? Am I crazy for considering this name as a comeback possibility?
Magdalena- I love this, and although I personally am not religious I think Mary Magdalene is certainly a worthy namesake if you are looking for a meaningful Christian name. I know a girl named...
Came across an interesting variant on the Jacob/Jacoby branch of names today- Jacobus. I hear the pretentiousness, but it's growing on me. Plus it was fun to discover a name I'd never seen before....

For Aria Claire's sibling, my favorites are:
Congratulations :) Love the name, it's the perfect balance of sweet and spunky.

Which names, if any, do you think have gone far enough toward pink and are ready to be used for boys again?
Personally, I think Aubrey, Avery, and even Madison work better on boys than girls. I'd...

The sibset Catherine Ophelia and William Balthazar! So gorgeous :)
Also Blade's kids, Antoine Raphael and Cassia Viviane Noor. Those two are just stunning.
Marion all the way!
What do you think of Tess Roxana? I'm a longtime Roxana lover (my dog is Roxy, actually) and I like Tess quite a bit. I would never give a kid what is essentially the same name as the dog, of course,...

I prefer Margot! I think it's more elegant and sophisticated than Bridget, and has a much prettier sound.
I was reading the newest blog post and came across the name of Pharrell Williams' dad, Pharaoh. I don't have any ties to Egypt but I thought this was an interesting idea. The combination William...
