    Thanks everyone! Really interesting re your feelings on the various names and great that there are champions for them all. Obviously I like them all so it is with some regret that I have to make a decision.

    I think we're probably going to go for Delilah despite the negative role model.

    I've had a really quick look at the bible story (will look into it more) and I can kind of convince myself she's been maligned. She's not necessarily a prostitute at all. She did take money for spying on Samson (a honey trapper) but then she might have been a Philistine and thus doing the right thing by her people. Anyway - it's more of a story which suggests an interesting woman (we don't know why she did what she did) rather than an out and out baddie in the vein of Salome.

    Is Delilah Lark Irwin too many "L" sounds if we were to use it for a middle name? I think Delilah demands a 1 syllable middle with her 2 syllable surname.
