Celeste was the name of my ex's very severe and domineering mother, so I had to vote for Beatrice! Though they're both beautiful names, I have to agree that they bring to mind very different kinds of...

Hate: Beau or Oakley
Love: Rex or Louie. Griffin's nice too, though I personally am a little bored with the name Finn--I know so many little Finns!
I agree with the suggestions of Clare/Clara, Sunniva, Marigold--but have you considered just Sunshine? I once knew a young woman named Sunshine and she was just lovely. Of course, she was blonde and...
Shae (g) or Shay (b) (is neither an option?)
I would pronounce it a-lee-AY-nor, but that's just my gut reaction, totally ignorant as to the correct way. :-)

CRESS-ih-duh (emphasis on the first syllable)
I like both, but I feel Marigold is more wearable, maybe because of it's longer history of use? Winston Churchill had a daughter named Marigold, so I tend to associate the name with that era. And I...
They're both beautiful, but in combination with Patricia, Amelia's a little rhyme-y, no? And, Amelia's way too close to Olivia for my own comfort--so I vote for Josephine!

Hazel, Ruby, Violet--obviously, I'm partial to Clementine, too! Hazel Adelaide, Ruby Adelaide, Violet Leona, Clementine Leona. Good luck and best wishes!
I think it's beautiful and, at least where I'm from, refreshingly unusual! I would love to meet a little girl named Gemma!

As a full name, Gwyneth Eliza is probably better, but I just think Josie and Nora sound so sweet together--so I have to vote for Josephine Maia! Best wishes to you, and, really, both names are lovely...

Beatrice--Dante's Purgatorio; Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing
Elinor--Austen's Sense and Sensibility
Rosalind--Shakespeare's As You Like It

Names I could use, either on my list or have been at some point: Helen, Margaret, Frances, Alice, Florence, Virginia, Eleanor, Beatrice, Marion (prefer Marian, though), Pearl, Vivian, Violet, Opal,...

I have one child in heaven and two earthside--we're pretty open to however many we're blessed with, but we basically reevaluate after each new baby. Trying for another right now! And, I've heard that...

Hmm, it might be bit theme-y...but I get more of a Victorian, Dickens-novel sort of feel from it, not so much a straight up garden theme. I think they're all, individually, beautiful names that flow...

I voted for Malcolm, Ronan, and Theodore, but now that I see that Ronan is your FIL, I think you should go with that one! What a great way to honor both grandfathers and have an awesome name at the...

My name is Anna, pronounced AH-nuh (or AW-nuh, depending on your accent, I guess) and I love it. Yes, it's mispronounced A LOT, and it sometimes boggles my mind that I can introduce myself and five...

If I was a boy, I would have been Eric. And my mom's "back-up" girls name was Greta, which I think is really pretty and have even thought about using myself.
Hmm, I'm really attracted to Llewellyn, but Lew/Lou really throws me, though Louie might work.
I love Adelaide, but Addy/Addie is just awful.
I've been toying with the idea of Bernadette lately,...
BBB: Leonard James, Reginald Peter, Thaddeus Eliot (Leo, Rex, Thad)
BBG: Leonard James, Reginald Peter, Beatrice Eulalie (Leo, Rex, Bee)
GGG: Marigold Ramona, Rosalind Frances, Winifred Esme...

I also prefer the spelling Elinor! I'm not clear on the history of the name, but I feel like it's weird to say Eleanor is "traditional" when Jane Austen used the Elinor spelling in Sense and...

Growing up I knew a family of Sc0tt, S+even, S@r@h and...C@sey. Poor C@sey was the 'trouble child,' too, and was left out in more ways than just his name!
Also, a friend of mine recently had...
