    I've always liked Rumi. Yes, it's one of Beyonce's babies but it isn't as notorious as Blue Ivy. I do also like Elara but Rumi definitely gets my vote.

    Rumi is really lovely and FWIW, I didn't know Beyoncé's daughter (or son?) had that name - as above poster said, I only know Blue Ivy.

    Elara is very pretty, and it falls within the current mania for 'a' ending names (Isabella, Sophia, Olivia, Ella, yadda yadda). I would consider that a strike against it, but that's just me (I prefer less less elongated final letters).

    Do you have any guidelines for a middle name? It's challenging to come up with one when the rules for the first are very specific but no rules for the middle. If you really have no requirements the sky's the limit. Is there any family you want to honor via a middle name? Do you want a short one, a long one, one the contrasts with Rumi, or has the same length/sound?

    From your list, Elara would be my first choice. Thoroughly lovely!

    Rumi reminds me of American actress/singer Rumer Willis, and Shily reminds me of American singer/songwriter/actress Miley Cyrus.

    Persian suggestions:

    Darya -- "sea, ocean"

    Delara -- "adorning the heart"

    Laleh -- "tulip"

    Parisa -- "like a fairy"

    Soraya -- "the Pleiades"

    Zahra -- "brilliant, bright"

    "Close your eyes and think about it.

    Which name do you really, really love the most?

    Go with the one that makes you smile every time you say it."
