    Ingrid is an incredible name. It does sound imposing, but in an excellent way.

    That said, I love names like this. Ingrid, Gretchen, Astrid and the like.

    It seems a little over-used right now to me. Too trendy and potentially date-stamped now-ish, IMHO.

    I think you want to vary the number of syllables a bit. I think Calla, two syllables, goes best with a three-syllable middle name. Calla Eve is a little too curt, and Calla Harper is too evenly...

    LOVE IT!!! (Said in my most resonant, melodious Opra voice).

    I think it rocks the so-old-lady-it's-fresh vibe. It's also wonderfully international, with much nicer pronunciations and variations...

    I think that Lee is the more masculine spelling, although it can also work on a girl too. Leigh does seem feminine to me.

    Well, that's how you pronounce Malia, as in Malia Obama. It's a Hawaiian name. Definitely not made up.

    But del-feen is the French pronunciation of the name. It's a slightly shorter I sound than the extended diphthong most Americans use, but definitely not the short I as in in or it.

    I think Margot is a nearly ideal name. Sadly, I have two close friends with daughters named Margot, so Margot is a no-got for me (ha!).

    I do think it fits very nicely with the other names you...

    I very much like Robin. My only qualms about it have to do with the popularity right now of names ending in -in or -n. I imagine a nursery school where the teacher calls, "Callan, Aiden, Lindon,...

    Hey, I love the names Barbara, Deborah, and Susan! Why are they any fustier than Miriam? I also like Susannah, although the "Oh Susannah" song does leap immediately to mind.

    I like it a lot. I think it fits in the "ends in an -n" trend while being refreshing.

    My first connotation for the name is Christopher Robin from Winnie the Pooh.

    I like it in theory, and written down. But spoken, at least in my accent, it's a homophone for papi, which is something that would bother me: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=papi

    I know that Avery is a variation of Alfred, so even though it's used on girls these days, it feels very masculine to me.

    But that's probably not an issue for you.

    More pertinent I would think...
