Love Lavinia Kate. Lavinia Mary has a totally different feel to the Lavinia combos I created. It makes her sound more gentle, less frou-frou.
I've been crushing on the name Lavinia lately and think it is the perfect name for fun middles. The girly, four syllable first just begs for something unexpected in the middle.

I think I'm in the minority here, but I think it sounds cool. Even if people made the Roman connection in their heads the first time they'd get over it as soon as they got to know the child. Hitler...

A few things. First, I LOVE Roscoe but am worried that the "osk" sound is too similar to Oskar. I'm liking Briscoe as a possible alternative.
Would you go with the Briscoe or Brisco spelling? ...
I like Lavinia Scout. Or something equally abrupt and modern to offset the romantic first.

Love, love Caroline and I think we give our children a precious gift when we bestow family names. It ties them to the family narrative. (Not that there aren't other ways to do so, but still.) I...
I like girl names that sound really, really intelligent and powerful while still sounding feminine. My three daughters are named Miriam, Emeline, and Harriet. Do you think Lavinia is in that same...
I adore Constance and since I hate nicknames as a general rule the lack of nice nickname isn't that much of a problem. My favorite combo: Constance Arabella. I like how it combines the smart,...
I think of the Peggy Sue song. That's not really a problem, just thought I'd mention it.
I really think there is a trend for originally blue names that turned pink to return to blue. I mean, look at parental options these days? No blue names are sacrosanct. You can try your hardest to...
Jasper Leo and Lucian Jett (to use the same two letters--I like it when twins have subtle links).

I have three boys already and am trying to come up with a list of names to present to my hubby for an additional boy-child. I like names that sound a little mischievous and a lot masculine.
I stayed up way too late last night thinking about names that sound redheaded to me for whatever reason.
All Irish and Scottish names:
Cormac (love that name and the nn Mac)...

Oh, go with Zelda. It is such a perfect name--it sounds like Gatsby and glitter and fun but also has a poetic, introspective side. Love it.
If you can't bring yourself to love it (and I...
Oooh, redheaded names. I am a redhead and 4 of my 6 children are redheaded so I'm practically an expert. :)
My redheads are Miriam, Emeline (go with that, such a perfect name), Eli, and Oskar....
Matilda might work although the nickname is a stretch. It has the "t" sound.

I thought Oh-leen as well. It is so pretty, but I'm biased because one of my favorite books has a character, female, named Orlean and Oline reminds me of that.

Briar is my favorite. Definitely hits the sweet spot of underused but not hard to pronounce. Plus, it has a really nice feminine aspect to it without being frilly.
Clementine is my second...

I'm loving Susannah Clementine--just spunky from start to finish.
Aww, you guys are so sweet! Thank you for the huge compliment, Aggie, and the feedback. Now I just need to create a person. :)

Any names that involve Chris--Christian, Christina, Christine, and the worst--Christopher. I have no idea why.

Sorry, he had me at Zinnia.
Hubby and I decided to try for baby #7 and I've been brainstorming ideas. (For those of you who recognize my name and remember I recently posted an expecting notice, I miscarried. Such is the way...
