    I think Carina is really pretty. It sounds fine with Noblee - I am pronouncing it like the word nobly, not like knob-lee. Honestly I see little difference between Noblee and popular names like Everly...

    I also thought of Pandora, though that's hard to carry off - so Pomona, maybe. And purple flower names: Lavender, Violet, Jasmine, Dahlia.

    People come out on both sides of reusing names ... in the end you have to do what feels right to you, and decide whether it would bring comfort or be too painful. No right answer. Maybe you could...

    Your signature says you are mom to daughters Stevie and a Weslynn. Were they supposed to be in the poll? Or just testing them out?

    I went to college with a Tzeitel. She had to explain the pronunciation to me the first time, but only because she pronounced it ZAY-tle and I grew up on Fiddler. It was just one of those names, like...

    Because I have spent big chunks of my life speaking Spanish, Reina feels like a title/word for me - it feels like calling a non-royal kid Princess or Queen or Countess. I would probably go for the...

    One of my favorite mini-gags in Kimmy Schmidt was Kimmy sort of mumbling the name because she couldn't quite catch it. But it actually feels like nice, more adventurous alternative to Penelope. I...
