    I've always thought Rory was very hard to say. That is the main reason I don't like the name. Rrrrr..........

    Rory and Rowan would be a NoNo in my book......Rrrrrr.......

    I don't think it'd be cheesy at all! I love that name! It's a pretty perfect, not overly trendy,definitely unique, but not too out there.

    I don't know about difficult...but awkward, definitely. I don't relish saying it. I also thought that it would be pretty matchy to have siblings Rowan and Rory; not my thing, but maybe yours?

    Rory isn't hard to say, and although I occasionally don't mind matching initials, Rory and Rowan are too similar for my liking. I would leave it for the middle.

    I like Rory a lot, and I think it's easy to say, and it seems like the perfect sort of name for you--so in your style, but mainstream enough that it really fits in with Rowan, unisex-stylish enough that quite at few people like it--that she'll likely like it--but tame enough that she wouldn't really feel like she has a crazy name, or a boys' name, but boyish/unisex enough that it really seems to suit your style. I want to love it, but I agree, Rory and Rowan are really similar. I think two "R" names are fine (Rowan and Reese/Rhys? even Rowan and Reagan?), but the Ro's for Rowan and Rory are really close. I still think you could probably get away with it, if it's the one, but it might be a bit too close for comfort. For me, at least, and for quite a few other Berries, apparently. I think Sawyer has that same great balance, unusual, unisex/masculine, but still more socially acceptable for a girl that goes really great with Rowan. Do you still like Sawyer? I've always really liked it for you from your options.
