    I always try to think about when your name is being called out in class for role-call (assuming they still use roll-call). In that case, I think Rebecca flows the best with Lehmer, and Becca is a cute shorter version. I like Henry and Felix for the boys. Don't forget, the kids are going to have to learn how to write their own name, so I think simpler is better all the way around.

    I really like Olivia Margaret. I think it is classic and beautiful. What about Emmett Henry? I think that flows well with your last name and sounds distinguished when called out at highschool/college graduation. :)

    Jillian is lovely (a name that stands out without being weird) and Vivian is so gorgeous it makes me light-headed. :) And Emmett is an outstanding choice for a boy!

    Hi -

    My favorites on your list are Vivian and Cora for a girl, and Henry and Felix for boys. Although I thought all of your top 5 girl names were pretty, I also thought they were common.... with quite a few of them, you could probably count on your daughter having another child in her Kindergarten class with the same name.

    In the end, though, you should name your baby whatever name YOU like best, of course, regardless of popularity :)

    My daughter is expecting their 7th child in August, and two or your girls names are a couple of my favorites-Jillian and Vivian. Although I'd spell it Vivien after Vivien Leigh, the star of Gone With The Wind.
    I like Emmett and Patrick of your boys list.

    My grandson's names are Oliver Patrick and Sebastian William.
    Good luck!
