    I have always secretly loved the name Skye. It refers to the Isle of Skye. If I were Scottish I would've definitely used it.

    @njordv: I just discovered Iona not too long ago, but I do think it's growing on me. My sister's name is Elizabeth, so Elspeth is probably out of the question. Thanks for your suggestions!

    @shvibziks: Thanks!

    @jesba: I think Aileen is very pretty, but I'm not really sure about the proper Scottish pronunciation. Can you give any help in that area? From your suggestions, I love:
    Afton (haven't thought of this before!)
    Eilidh (although I would hesitate to put such a difficult to spell name as a first)
    Greer/Grier (although I do think it comes off a little masculine for my taste)
    Mirren (also one I haven't thought of)

    Nairne sounds intriguing. It reminds me of Narnia :P

    @kala_way: From my understanding, even though Margaret isn't originally Scottish, it's been a very popular name there (I think I read somewhere that it's even the national name, if there is such a thing) for so long that it's kind of become a Scottish name, if any of that makes sense! This is all somewhat new to me, I'm actually about 90% German myself.

    @stephanie413: I think that the Isle of Skye looks beautiful, but the name Skye always looks to me like it should be included in the "trendy, here for a day" type of names.
