    Winter Melody
    I love your style too, Winter Melody is actually one of the names we're considering. Somehow I just forgot to list it!
    Dusk is a very cool and handsome name, I'd love it for a little guy and I see Avery in your signature, that's my son's name :)

    I think you like the word Win!! It figures in so many of your choices. But here's a basic rule I'd set: Two words names is one too many. I would sacrifice any overly homogenous notion of "flow" and go with a choice like Rowan Winter -- why not? or Winter Rowan. Much better than Winter Rose or Winter Lake or Winter Melody.

    Bronwyn or more appropriately Bronwen is a wonderful name but I think it bumps up too directly against Winter, but would work with any of your other word names in the first or middle place.

    I'd eliminate Cadence as a bit trendier than your other choices.

    A few other names with win in them: Winifred, Rowena (you could call her Rowen or even Wren), Gwen or Gwyneth or Gwendolen or Guinevere.

    Bottom line: If your husband is in love with Winter and won't let go, you've got to find a non-word name to pair it with....and Bronwyn won't do. So Rowan or....let's keep looking.

It SEEMS like Rowan may be your favorite while Winter is your husbands's... So unless there's some reason I'm totally missing I wouldn't count out Rowan Winter :)
    You do??!!!!!
    The "wan-win" combination is exactly what we've been worrying about but I do keep going back to it and you're restoring my faith :)
    Thank you!

    I do love the word Win! And I'm smiling ear to ear right now because I'm falling in love with Rowan Winter. Rowan has been my top choice for a while and my husband certainly loves Winter. I think it's a go :)
    Thank you!
