Recently I realized I mix up Amara and Amaya--though I guess that's understandable since they are only one letter apart. I also know a Kevin who I think of as Noah--but that's less of an issue with the names and more about how I knew an actual Noah who looked just like him.

Yes, I believe it is. A bunch of spam accounts have been posting a bunch of different naming "dilemmas" featuring this same group of siblings.

In Response to Rank the Names!

12. Kalista - Just looks wrong

11. Christina - It's pretty, but I'm not a fan of names that shout out your religion

10. Aria - I'm not sure why, but I've never really liked it

9. Nina - Kind of bland

8. Isabella - Nice but overused

7. Fiona - Nice but I like the others better

6. Talia - Ditto

5. Eliza - Ditto

4. Anna - Ditto

3. Sophia - It's popular for a reason. What a pretty name

2. Luna - I've always liked it, and the Harry Potter association is always a bonus

1. Saskia - I knew a little girl named Saskia years ago and she was so sweet that I've always liked this name since

 

New list--one-syllable names off the top of my head: Claire, Grace, Joy, Jade, Anne, May, June, Leigh, Jess, Kay, Lou, Jean

Same with the Crosby/Cosby issue--I STILL have to pause before I say either name just to make sure I've got the right one--especially with all the negative stuff going on right now with one of them.

In Response to Drop 2 Add 1 - Girls

(No, I've never met a Clove, and I think it's rarer than Clover)

 

Drop: Lyra (weird and I'm not sure how to pronounce it), Tallulah (kind of weird and too many alternate spellings)

Add: Peony (the name of a precious stuffed animal)

 

Maya, Peony, River, Sasha, Summer, Thea, Vera

In Response to Sibling for Briar!

Tough call without knowing a little more about the story, but I'd look at other short, unusual, nature-ish word names.

Obviously the first thing that jumps to mind is Rose, but sisters named Briar and Rose is probably too much.

Other names that come to mind (not sorted by gender since some of them could be unisex; with varying combininations of some of the qualities I listed above):

Wren, Ivy, Willow, Audra, Calla, Neve, West, North, Hudson, Clay, Logan, Amity, Blanche, Blair, Beatrix, Hallie

Considering the mom's and aunt's names, and the fit with the last name, my top picks would be:

Wren, Ivy, Willow, West, North, Clay, Beatrix

From one writer to another, good luck with your story!
