In Response to Wierd name ideas!!

Actually, using spelling mistakes is a tactic that is used often by spamming algorithms. This is because spam filters will get rid of messages that contain certain patterns. Certain spelling mistakes are easy for humans to understand, but hard for computers to recognize.

Matilda has recently been added to this list for me because of the song by Alt-J

I also tend to agree with copey that, in general, people using masculine names on girls do so more of a style preference than out of a reflection of their beliefs about women. 

However, I do think that it is important for the poster to be aware that August is not generally considered a unisex name, but is firmly male, both in origin and popular use. This is especially true, given her comments above on Elliot, and being worried that her daughter would be mistaken for a boy.

Last year, the name August was given to 1520 boys, and was the 242nd most popular name. Augustus was given to 499 boys, and Augustine to 220. 

Last year August was given to only 230 girls, and did not make the top 1000. It's not as if no one is using this name for girls, but it also means that the vast majority of people will assume that August is a boy.

All of these are great choices! You really can't go wrong with any of them! My personal favorites are Elias and Nicholas.

Congratulations!

Love Quentin! One of the guys I work with is a 25ish year-old Quentin, and he wears it so well! People often call him Q as a nickname. He also has a very common surname, so I think that his parents also wanted his name to stand out a bit more.  

Your son will be the absolute coolest!

Spurgeon is probably after the well-known British preacher, Charles Spurgeon.

 

Still not sure where Quincy is coming from

In Response to Rose or Rosalie

Agreed! As someone with an alliterative name myself, I actually really like it when I see other alliterative names. The most anyone has commented on my name is to say that it sounds like a newscaster. 

Either Rosalie or Rose would be a very sweet name, in my opinion.

Of your names, I really love Georgia. It definitely meets the criteria of "traditional and not too popular" for me. Bella and Scarlett definitely feel more trendy to me (my main associations are Twilight and Scarlett Johansson)

 

Some suggestions:

Amelia

Violet

Ella

Ada

Hazel

Clara

Mira

Alice

Joanna

Elise

Do any of these appeal to you?

In Response to Laís

I actually don't think I would have a problem pronouncing Laís at all, especially when written with the accent. If you love the name, you should use it!

In Response to Thoughts on Croix

I think of La Croix, which is a brand of sparking water that is pretty popular here.

I actually really like the idea of Autumn Walk. It's striking in a good way to me with your last name, and it's my favorite of your first name choices on its own. 

Might I suggest:

Ivy

Holly

Avery

Briony

Harper

Larkin

In Response to Name Possibilities

In the British show "Skins" they had a character named Aloysius that went by the nickname Alo. I thought that was a nice nickname, but it might be too obvious of a reference for some people, depending on where you live.

Your tendency towards Everlie and Elodie make me think of this post that Laura wrote about the "off with their heads" names. http://www.babynamewizard.com/archives/2007/2/off-with-their-heads. Even Maylie is a new take on a more familiar name (Kaylie)

On this note, what do you think of Attalie, Layla, Abrielle, Kinley, Elsie?

I'll throw out a few others. What do you think of 

Gemma

Joelle

Evryn

Kyla

Larkin

Kira (or Keira)

Lianna

Emmalyn

Audra

I'm not sure how open to suggestions you are at this point, but I thought that I would add one that no one has brought up yet. For me, Marta has all the snappiness of Margot, with the benefit of being a very international name. 

I also love the previous poster's suggestion of Ione! I love the quirkiness and the long O sound in the middle of the name to go with Hugo.
