    I've always like Kaia and Caia, and I especially like how it fits with Amara. Both do sound sort of mystical and multicultural. If you're super concerned about them fitting together, you could always...

    If I met a non-American named Jemima, I wouldn't think it was racist in the least. If I met an American named Jemima (I'm American), I wouldn't think that she or her parents were racist either. It's...

    My 2-year-old niece is just Lulu (not Lucy or Louise or Louisa, etc) and I was skeptical at first, but it suits her to a T. While Lou and Lulu sound familiar, very, very few people are using them. We...

    I love Kaia and Caia! Personally I consider that the more "exotic" choice, maybe because a lot of families of Italian descent live near me and many have at least one kid with a name in the...

    Probably too rhymey. Is the name pronounced WEN-de-lee her surname, not a middle name? I'd go with Evelyn, Evangeline, Eva, or Ever instead. Even if her first and middle were Ever Leigh, that might...

    Argh! I had heard that Elowen was Cornish but STILL I called it Welsh! Sorry!

    For what it's worth, I don't see any of these being in the "guaranteed future top 5" category. Lucy, Nora and Stella...

    Solely based on a combo of rankings, overall trends, what I've seen in my circles, and gut check:

    Elowen (not in top 1000) - There's been no real uptick in Welsh names in the US, and despite the...

    My suggestion would be to sort of pretend that they had named her Giselle instead if you're looking for names that match. That brings you to graceful, feminine, possibly French names. I loved the...

    Because I find Lachlan one of the more masculine boy names, I suggest a clearly feminine middle name that's short enough that you have the option of calling her by both names if she wants something...

    My thought when I saw Paige, Nora, and Annie: they sound like they'd be the leading ladies in a romantic comedy. That's a compliment - they're feminine but also kind of casual/comfy. I like them...

    It sounds more masculine to me than a lot of the -lee / -ley names. Must be the Finn part. I'd assume boy but like PP said, it wouldn't be shocking on a girl.

    My (French Canadian) great-grandmother pronounced it Ap-o-leen. It's a female version of Apollo, so cool! But I could see it ending more in an eh/a sound in a German pronunciation. Apolena is another...

    If you follow celebrity baby names, you've probably been wondering what Zooey Deschanel named her little one. And Elsie Otter is certainly very Zooey Deschanel!
