I live in the Midwest, where Ainsley is extremely popular right now. Sadly, it would be the first to go because of this fact. Maybe consider Adeline or Adriana as a substitute?
I love Daisy, but...
Violet or the super-feminine Violetta might also be a lovely tribute to your father.
Some of your picks are more super-trendy than trashy -- every other baby girl I know is some spelling variation of Everley/Everly/Everlee, unfortunately.
The only two that could be seen as...
Celestia (This was pioneer girl Carrie Ingalls' middle name!)
I love Millie, and it can absolutely stand on its own.
My grandmother's name was Mildred Marie. She always went by Millie. I have pictures of her as a baby with dark brown curls and huge brown...

I am 33 now. When I was a teenager in the late 1990s, I loved ...

Someone had an Eliza Genevieve on a list. Swoon!
Cadence started out as a hip, quirky name for baby boys -- similar to Finn or Milo or Jasper.
However, it very quickly became a name used for mostly girls.
I hate to say this, but the...

Thank you so much! Biblical names and floral names are definitely strong possibilities. I like your advice about focusing on sound, rather than on ethnicity.
When my now-husband and I started...
These are some of my least-favorite names. They're even worse when spelled kreatifly.
Jasmine, Jazmin, etc.

My husband and I are expecting our very first baby in late December. We have decided against learning if the baby is a boy or a girl.
We have a name locked in if the baby is a boy: Jonah....

I do love Esperanza! It makes me think of the outstanding book "Esperenza Rising."
My only concern -- do you still associate this name with your baby that died? If it is a source of pain for you,...

Here are some of my most favorite "C" names for girls. I hope there are a couple you like as well.
Naomi is a true citizen of the world! My husband and I are expecting our first baby in December. Naomi is in our top 3 names for girls, along with Juliet and Elizabeth/Eliza.
To me, a Naomi is...
Baby names don't get any more stylish than Cecilia! I figure if Vera Wang chose it for her daughter, it must be lovely.
I prefer the traditional spelling of Cecilia. The Catholic Sant Cecilia is...
I love Rose. It's so uncommon as a first name. It's both strong and romantic, vintage and modern. You can't go wrong with Rose!
I adore Scarlett Johansson's baby girl's name: Rose Dorothy! It's so...

My cousin named her baby daughter Theodosia. Everyone calls her Teddy. She is absolutely beautiful in every way!
I would probably never be that adventurous. I'm so happy my cousin went with a...
I will have to echo some of the comments from above: Try not to pair word first names with word middle names.
I voted for Azure Maria (gorgeous name!) and India Miriam.
If your little girls...

I absolutely L-O-V-E Flora! Honestly, I don't mention this name around friends/family much because I am afraid someone might "steal" it. I also worry its popularity will eventually take off. Flora...

Thanks so much for your suggestions! Please do keep them coming.
The middle name doesn't have to be Biblical. Just beautiful.

My husband and I are reconsidering Juliet after being all over the place with girls' names. We love its history and beauty.
However, we are struggling with a middle name. Our last name is a...
What fun! I can't imagine being a parent of sextuplets ... Oh my. But NAMING them would be a blast!
I would go "saintly," because those little girls would be miracles!
Their first names all...

Do authors of books count?
I would absolutely love to name a future son Ezra Jack, as in Ezra Jack Keats, although I don't know if I can convince my husband to go for it.
I would probably love...
Good luck! I just LOVE Maeve!
I have a good friend who wanted to use it for her daughter, but her husband said "no." The baby ended up being named Maisie. It seems like guys tend to like the...
Lola Violet is absolutely perfect. I especially love the "o" in both names. They match so well.
Be sure to post in Nameberry's Birth Announcements forum after you and...
