    I like the idea of Blue as the middle name - Leo and Blue feel kind of mismatched as given names for siblings. I like Rory Blue C____d pretty well. Lilac Blue feels weird to me simply because lilacs...

    With your girls' names, the Calanthe/Xanthe group feels like the best fit to me - zesty, lively and unusual but they don't sound like your daughters' names and they feel very wearable to me.

    I...

    Seraphina is too frilly and princessy for my taste personally - I agree with a PP that it's quite "elaborate" whereas I feel the lovely Lucia is less fussy. That said, a lot could hinge on how it...

    For a boy, I like Carter and Camden about equally, but I agree with a PP that Carter sounds better with the surname Dean, so I'd pick that.

    For a girl, I like Hayley (and this spelling is my...

    I really like it. I think I've only met one Autumn. It doesn't lend itself well to nicknames IMO, but it doesn't need to be nicknamed anyway. Your Autumn Naomi combo is gorgeous - they have totally...

    I think it fits with the names in your sig. I think it's "My Sister's Keeper" (tear-jerker of a book) that has an Andromeda who goes by Anna. Personally I'd consider it a bit too far over the GP line...

    It depends on the rhythm of the surname (how many syllables and which is stressed?), but without knowing that, and keeping in mind that you're thinking of putting something short-but-sweet in there...

    My instinct was to pronounce it pretty phonetically - sa-VILL-uh, rhyming with "vanilla". I considered the sa-VEE-uh pronunciation but since it isn't spelled "Seville" I figured that was wrong.

    I think it sounds great! I also really like Miles, in general and in your context. I like Reid as well but there's a breeziness to both Miles and Hayes that to me Reid doesn't really share.

    Harper and Harpa are completely different names to me (I live in Canada and they'd be pronounced differently here) - but although Harpa makes me cringe and I'm glad they went with Harper instead, I...

    I'm a big Arrested Development fan, and they say early on that Maeby is a nickname for Mae anyway... so to me this makes more sense. (The fact that Maeby is a homonym for "maybe" seems problematic...

    I'd prefer to know the surname it would be going with before making a call - I think that would make a huge difference.

    As to your specific questions:

    I expect it's super unusual in the US, but...

    I like Dove OK - it's not my favourite because I can't imagine it on a really outgoing person and I tend to prefer names that I can see working on many personality types. I think the image doves have...

    Willa has been growing on me - a sweet, earthy name. I like Frances with it (or Francesca!) better than Cecile, just because they don't have any sounds in common. I could see Willa's popularity...

    I think Eliza would be much easier than the others, because while it does start with "Eli-", it's the "LYE" syllable that's stressed rather than the "ELL" syllable. Eliana and Eliza don't sound...

    Lots of great suggestions already, so I'll just add the one I thought of right away: so long as you don't plan to call Margot "Maggie", I think Margot Magnolia would sound awesome - vast and grand,...

    I agree that having the initials AIR doesn't feel like a deal-breaker. Partly this is because AIR isn't offensive in any way, partly it's because I think getting to "airhead" from it is a bit of a...

    I love Paloma, and I love the contrast between its smoothness and the more staccato-ish quality of your surname. I agree that Valentina B@ck0wski feels like a mouthful, and I think I get Agnes's...

    Georgia by miles and miles. It's a classic, revived-vintage choice that I think is really versatile and strong, and Georgia Kate sounds great to me! Anniston feels really trendy and flimsy to me, and...

    It feels really dated to me, too - I would've said 1970s-80s though, not '40s-'50s.

    The Keira spelling looks a lot more complete to me - I always wonder if Kira is a nickname. I do quite like Keira, generally.

    Could you either share the surname or describe it (like, how many syllables; what does it start/end with, what sounds are prominent)? That would help narrow it down.

    Without knowing that, I think...
