Basil Athanasius--This was my first pregnancy that ended up being a miscarriage. We had already decided on the name and decided to bury the name with the child. St. Basil was an early saint who was...

I want to second Laszlo, Llewellyn, Balthasar, and Auberon, but the name that came to mind immediately from your description was Emrys.
uh-MEAL-yuh. If I try to say it with 4 syllables, it ends up uh-MEAL-ee-uh, with the second to last syllable almost inaudible.

I've found that, for both girls an boys, I like the short e sound--a soft 'eh' is present in many of my names, first and middle. I don't like girls' names that end in -a, usually. Lately, I've also...
I think Greer and Cadence share a straightforwardness and no-frills style. Annalee sounds nice with them, but seems a bit more on the girly side. Honestly, the set reminds me of Southern families...
So, my husband and I agree that we love this name, even though it may seem a bit out a of place with the more Anglophile names we've already chosen. We would use it in a heartbeat, except for the...
I know a grown man, a soldier and a lawyer, named Ashley who is one of the most masculine men I've met. I don't think his name has held him back at all! Though, in all honesty, I wonder how much of a...

1. How many lists do you have? One for boys, one for girls? Or do you have more than that?
I have a boys master list and a girls master list, each divided into three sub lists--Full Combos, Single...

Obviously I love it...my oldest daughter is Clementine Eloise! I think your combo flows really nicely and has such a sweet personal meaning. One thing about nicknames--I always thought we'd have one...

I'd go with Eudora--just to make a nice set of Southern authoress names with Flannery! Though, what happens if you have a third girl...Harper?

I agree that it seems more of a boys name, but given the connection with Julian of Norwich, I think it's usable on a girl. As a pp said, if you're ok with the potential confusion, then it's probably...

I like Fern, Blythe, and Eve for girls. One reason I don't tend to collect single syllable names is that my surname is single syllable, and two single beat names in a row sounds a bit harsh or...

Winifred--one of my favorites! Sound quirky but traditional at the same time.
Blythe or Blanche-- I love both of these, but I think Blythe wins by a hair.
Viridis or Vivica--I...

I love the name Tzeitel! Even though I am not Jewish or a theatre geek, I do love Fiddler and figured out how to say the names pretty early on. I think it might be troublesome to help people with it,...
