I think that to some ears, any name that ends in -us/-as sounds pretentious. Roman/mythological names seem to be your style, though, so go for it! There's no such thing as a universally liked name....

Thanks for the suggestion! I don't think we'd want to pick another uncommon spelling that wasn't used by one of the women we want to honor, though. It's either go with the traditional spelling, or...

Thanks for the input! You guys make a good point about Selene vs. Selena/Silena/Selina fitting better depending on the first name.
I think Isabella Jolie is a very pretty combination.

1) ...is the most unusual? Beatrix? Vesper if we're counting guilty pleasures
2) ...is the most traditional? Eleanor
3) ...is the most masculine? Margot? I don't really have any masculine picks...

I'm a student of church history, while my husband's a student of theology. Our church tradition, like many, has historically been opposed to ordaining women or granting them any public teaching,...
Indy makes me think of Indiana Jones' nickname, so I imagine it more on a boy. I think Indie is wonderful for a girl. Some people might suggest a longer formal name and to use Indy/Indie as a...

Eh, my feelings would be a bit hurt initially, but I think I would get over it. I think I'd be hurt less that she wanted to change her name, and more by her reasons (that she thought I'd given her a...
I'm going to have to echo others and say that I'd steer clear of Bennett with your last name - it's too matchy for my taste.
We're in similar boats--I had to give up a favorite (Estelle) when I...
I prefer Anne.
Although, I might prefer Ann in double-barrelled names (Lucy-Ann, etc.)
Shepherd Miles or Camille Joy
I'm sorry, that's no fun. I'm sure that in her mind she's being helpful.
Since it sounds like she's just visiting, I'd suggest smiling, thanking her for her advice, and kindly reminding her...
Do you plan to give any other children (girls perhaps?) names based on the name's meaning? If that's not really your naming style anyway, I wouldn't try to force it. Some cultures/times/people...
I'm going to against the grain and say that if you have no intention of ever calling him Evander, just name him Vander.
Other similar names (like Zander/Xander for Alexander) are becoming...
I like them all, but I think that Mila Rose is my favorite.

I vaguely remember doing this once before, but it's fun, so let's go again!

"Ruined" is a strong word, but yes, I do take into consideration pop culture when choosing favorite names. I'm more likely to be turned off if a particular name has one very strong, almost...
Don't let one person's negativity bring you down. There will always be someone who thinks your kids' name is ugly. Always. No name is universally liked.
As far as feeling "tired," I think...
I like both combinations very much. Would you want to save Clementine for a possible future child?
On another note, I'm usually all for thinking about "professionality" of names, but with the...
With a name as short as "Eric" I doubt he'd go by a nickname often. Even if he did, you could still spell it "Aer" if you wanted.
If you really want to begin his name with "Ae," I'd suggest the...
I also wanted to pipe up and encourage you not to mark Freya off your list just because your last name starts with F! My first and maiden names both start with L, and I actually really liked it.
I tend not to like names that start with Q, R, T, U, D, F, J, K, or N.
I especially don't like R, but I'm not sure if that's because I don't like the letter, the sound, or the names I know that...
