Amusingly Soleil is much more familiar to the American ear than the names you listed because of actress Soleil Moon Frye who starred in a sitcom called Punky Brewster back in the '80s. I've known...
I'm a comic book fan, and while Loki in mythology is misunderstood and playful, in Marvel comics he's mostly a villain. I haven't read too much Thor comics (or seen the movies), but he comes across...
If you named your son Thor I'd assume you were big on Norse mythology or comic books. If you told me you named him that because you thought it sounded cool I'd be disappointed.

I like Joseph Kellan or Kellan Joseph. I'm not Catholic, but am frankly envious when it comes to all of those saints names. So much great names with great stories to choose from!
As far as the...
I voted for Perenelle. Lily just feels a little bland and Hermione feels tied to the character for me even though objectively I know it's been used in Shakespeare and the like. Perenelle feels like...

A teenage criminal in the news a year or two back, Shitavious. I'm assuming it's Shi-tavious.

Here's my personal list of names not in the 1000:
I also pronounce Conal as Cone-al, since it's to honor a family member I would spell it Connall. I also find that spelling to have a much more intuitive pronunciation.
I like Connall Ray Barren....
My personal favorite out of the potential names is Estella. I also like how different in sound Caroline is to Cecilia, but you maybe trapping yourself into C names. If you have a third child you...
I voted for Sansa, Violet, Damien, and Kellan.
Sansa just seems very fresh and spunky. I like it more than Violet for you. Lilou for some reason reminds me of the nickname of Lindsay Lohan, Lilo,...
I'm dating myself but back in the early '90s there was the cartoon show X-Men the Animated Series and the professor, code named Professor X, is ex-ay-vee-er. So that's how I pronounce it.
Kate, here is my advice for you:
Sign up for welfare and food stamps. Right now you need income and food for yourself and the baby.
I also want you to look into the Housing Authority. While you...

My no Gods or Goddess rule has more to do with the fact that they are big shoes to fill. Diana is a Goddess name, but a woman named Diana isn't strange or outrageous. Others have no problem with...

I don't have the Freakanomics book, but I have seen studies where people with "black names" like Jamal or Keisha get less job interviews than those with "white names" like William or Catherine when...

I happen to like Abraham. Being American, I'm reminded of Abraham Lincoln who is a good namesake. I don't think that Agatha and Abraham are that odd together. They do have a similar rhythm, but I...

I agree with everyone else. The sooner you start calling her Summer and change her name, the better. Since you and your partner aren't using Amber, it will make the switch easier.
Noa is a legit female name. I've seen it used around my area and is a great way to get to Noah without the baggage. You might get occasional looks and some snoopy people might ask, but you could tell...
Hayden is unisex to me. Avery is more popular on girls than boys right now and so is Kendall. Both chart for boys and girls making them unisex. Blake also charts for both boys and girls, but is much...
Plenty of people have heard of Azriel. It's the name of Gargamel's cat from the Smurfs. Originally the cat was female in the comics, but changed to male for the cartoon and has been male ever since....
You never really can tell what will offend or insult people. How many people who love the name Cohen realized it was the Jewish equivalent to naming your son High Priest of Jerusalem? I heard of one...
I'm also going with Agatha because it would be nice and unexpected to see.

Elizabeth and Andrew are wonderful names. I don't see Libby for Elizabeth being that big of a stretch. Don't worry, she won't get confused.
I'm reminded of singing/musician Shawn Colvin. Personally, if I saw the name on a roster I would assume boy. It's a guys' name to me.

I don't think there is anything wrong with Elizabeth. Andrew is longer than Paul, Clare, Mark, and James. Maybe Libby could be a nickname just dad calls her. Just like Katharine she'll make up her...

I apologize for not posting, Sheena. I'm better at voting on names than coming up with them. I'm still a bit new at this. Caden Alexander is a good combo, while Caden Linden sort of repeats in sound,...
