    I love Amity! I think Dove could possibly work. For middle names, I think you can go wild, but I prefer a very out there middle with a more traditional first name for balance. So I like Amity Kate or Anna Compassion, but not Amity Compassion. I think it just gets to be too much, and there's no "fall back name" if the child wants to have a more common/less common name to use.

    A lot of these names are extraordinarily unusual, which I would caution against as a first name. Some of the names are not just unusual, but also have some bad metaphorical connotations. Glacier, for example, is associated with coldness and (via Glacial) extreme slowness. Night often carries the literary association of darkness and despair, as in Elie Wiesel's book "Night," an account of his time in Auschwitz and Buchenwald. Of course, Night is too common a word for that to be everyone's first assumption, but I'm sure the word was chosen for its dismal connotations.

    Some of these names can be abstracted a bit. Peace, for example, could be replaced with Paz, Pax, Frieda, Salama, Salim, any variant of Irene, Mira, Miran, Pace, Salome, or Shalom. I like the more subtle (but still obvious) versions Pax and Shalom. People generally know what they mean, but they aren't as aggressively word names.

    I love Dove as a middle name. I prefer Pax to Peace. As a whole we have very different tastes in names. There is nothing wrong with that. We are all allowed to have our own likes and dislikes.
    Maebry Eloise o Avia Juniper o Indie Rose Clementine
    Piers Lachlan o Roan August o Emerson Gray o Bennett Wolf
