I prefer one of the Aria/Gracie combos, just because I'm not a big fan of matchy names on twins. It can be hard enough for people to keep twins straight without names that look/sound similar. :)
We're between generations right now, so our most recent girl was Grace Lenore in 2002 (?).
@justskinandbone - Ooh! It's good to know there's at least one little Vesper floating around out there. I imagine knowing one has made Vesper seem less strange and allowed you to fall in love with...
My husband and I would probably kill each other before we successfully agreed on names for 3 daughters... so I'll just pick my favorites, and ignore the fact that he'd veto each one :)

I would if they also rhymed. Ex: I wouldn't use both Eli and Levi, because they sound quite similar when yelled across the room. Same with Isla and Lila or Aiden and Hayden.
If I loved two...
It's hard for me to talk baby names with friends outside NB, because they go all into OMGGGGG!!! Are you preggo?!?!?! mode. So, without a lot of feedback, it's hard for me to take a step back and...

I really like your naming style--Graham Shepherd is on our list, so that's my vote!

I think Josephine is totally fine, even with your DH being Joseph. If anything, it's nice that her name honors his, even if that wasn't your original intention in picking the name.
+1 I've never heard of anyone pronouncing it "byew" either. Honestly, I mostly clicked on this thread because I was trying to figure out how there could be multiple pronunciations of Beau floating...
Honestly, I think you have a good idea. People seem to think that if a baby isn't born yet, they have the right to pipe up and give their opinion, even if you're not asking for it.

While I like a broader range of girls' names, I find that I love more boys' names. I could easily make a list of 50 girls' names that I like, but I might only love one or two; whereas I'd have a...
I prefer Helen-uh, but I'd imagine that most people (at least here in the Southern US) would go with Hel-lay-na at first glance.
I love Helena, but the variety of acceptable pronunciations is one...

I tend to prefer noun names on boys, though I'm not sure why. Arrow was certainly an unusual choice--I might have expected Archer instead, since it's becoming popular, but I suppose that would have...

Had I been a boy, I would have been Miles David after my great-grandfather and father.
My mom considered using Beth as my first name (she's a big Little Women fan), but apparently my grandmother...
I think this would be a hard name to pull off. Erminia or Eminie are more wearable options, I think
Thank you guys for the feedback!
I'd love more thoughts on Lachlan--since it's not incredibly popular, do you think it would often be misspelled or mispronounced? I really like the name, but I...
Oh, wow! Thank you all for the excellent feedback! You've made some fabulous first/middle combo suggestions and eased some of my pronunciation fears. This will be a wonderful resource once we've...
