    Charlotte Opal is lovely, assuming your last initial doesn't spell something problematic. I think it's lovely to honour your grandmother and would make your daughter's name very special.

    My daughter was 9 days after her EDD (which I'm 100% sure was accurate.) Baby # 2 currently has 12 days to go until EDD so we'll see!

    I think this is a good example of how having the "wrong" gendered name, bothers totally unaffected observers far more than the actual wearer of the name. In my experience, this young man's reaction...

    As a currently fat, pregnant person,who also happens to be over 30, ruining my body carrying my 2nd poor, sickly child, I'm torn between insulted and amused. It helps that you come across as being...

    I like Indigo. I totall agree with Lucia, in that the meaning of "Indio" is problematic and I'd be uncomfortable seeing it on a child. I'm not sure if it's the same in the US, but in Canada the term...

    I like Cass-ee-ah, but not Cash-ah. Unfortunately the only Cassia's I've met pronounced it Cash-ah.

    I'll go against the grain here, but I really like Rune. It's unusual, and I think gives a nice way to the same basic sound as Rue without the really terrible meaning. (To Rue = to regret bitterly.) ...

    Aven Edward Dale is gorgeous. I love it. I would put it in the unisex category (in that you may occassionally have to correct someone who thinks your boy is a girl, but really, this is not the end of...

    I like it. It's not pretentious at all. It does look a little O heavy, but as the pp noted, around here Lennox is pronounced Lennix too, so it actually sounds quite flowy. Lennox was on my long list,...

    I've never heard of or considered Alaska as a name, but I actually think it's really beautiful, especially if you have a connection with the place (not so much if you live there.)

    Saskia is nice...

    Honestly, I think you have your answer. She didn't ask your opinion, so don't give it.

    Dreamer is far from the worst name ever bestowed on a child and while it's certainly not one I'd choose, I...

    Finley is ranked higher as a girls name than as a boys, so if you are looking for something firmly masculine, this is not it. As far as modern usage goes I'd call it truly unisex. I personally don't...

    Definitely Fuchsia Maeve. I've always found Chrysanthemum to be a bit of a tongue twister and can't imagine it on a real person. It was actually our joke name for DD before she was born. We told...

    I know an Arie. I think it works just fine as a complete name, and if Ari looks to masculine for you the e at the end makes it look definitely feminine without adding another sylable. The only...

    Archer
    Griffin
    Escher
    Jude
    Aksel

    Normally I'd put Jude higher, but I don't really like it with Paul.

    I have to agree. I think Rush Limbaugh contaminates the name to the point of unusability. It's really too bad, as it would be cute otherwise.

    I think what you're probably seeing is more a result of Karen being pronounced differently in different dialects. In mine (Western Canada) Karen and Seren sound very, very similar, because Karen is...

    Anabay (anna-bay) - Usable, I think. It definitely looks made up, but I don't think it would send a kid to therapy.
    Espen - Mmm, not my style. I like Aspen better.

    I really like it. I think it sounds strong and has a nice modern sound along with meaning and a 'real name' feel.

    The only reason it's not on my boy name list is that it could sound like "Bare -...

    Those are the first that popped into my head. Do you have any family names you'd like to honour, any style you particularly like...

    I actually know a little Daxton. It suits him, but 99% of the time he just goes by Dax. I think Daxwell and Daxter are pretty open to being misheard as Maxwell and Dexter which could be a problem....

    Way, way, way, way over analyzing it. Unless it's going to bother you, I think it's just fine.

    It's unusual and most people have trouble accepting something that's outside their comfort zone. However, I think you'd get a totally different reaction to "this is my son Zephyr" as opposed to "what...
