Some of these are great - Amabel, Stellan, Zaina, Devlin.

With Naylor, though, I'd caution against the potential teasing with "nail her."

This is just... it reminds me of middle school girls experimenting with spelling their names different ways and coming to their senses once they hit high school.

Not good. :/

I like Vivienne better, it's a classic name that I think will age well.

I like Fina! or Fia.

I don't think Josephine sounds masculine at all.

I do think it's a little close to Genevieve.

I like Joey or JoJo as nicknames. Peppa not so much.

My family is Italian and I've had male relatives named Joseph who went by Pepi, and female relatives named Josephine who went by Pepina.

A few other ideas:

Jacqueline

Jasmine

Justine

Janine

Madeleine/Madeline

Caroline/Coraline

Delphine

Adeline

Christine

Evangeline

Maxine

In Response to Baby Sister

I like Cate better, but I'd spell it Kate.

I also like Ethan a lot better than Bryce, which kind of reminds me of "rice." I don't think BJ is a huge issue unless that was going to be a nickname. I do like EJ as a nickname for Ethan James.

Fun fact: they both mean "strength."

These work the best IMO:

Arina

Alina

Nika

Larissa

Galina

 

These seem hardest to pronounce:

Vasilisa

Xenia/Ksenia (I would guess the first was as either "zhen-ya" or "zeen-ee-yah" and the second as "kuh-sen-ee-yah")

Taisiya

Nadezhda (but I love the nickname, Nadia)

Zlata

 

Ulyana, Alyona, Agnia I see as somewhere in the middle.

 

Milana and Milena I think may be tainted by Melania Trump.

 

Fun fact: my sister's name is Nica, pronounced the same as Nika but short for Nicola. Named after my mom's dad from Southern Italy. (we grew up in northeast US)

In Response to Fido?

Agreed. I saw the subject line and thought you were trolling... Fido unfortunately has the same associations as Spot or Rover. It's a dog name.

I like Felipe too. You could also go with Phillppe or Philip.

I love the name Georgette.

I don't know if this will make you more or less panicky, but here's the thing about gender: it's never a done deal. Having an intersex baby (one whose physical sex characteristics are not obviously male or female, or may be a mix of both) is about as common as having a baby with red hair. Your child could also grow up to be trans or gender fluid, identifying with a gender other than the one the doctors gave them. Just something to keep in mind!

That being said, I think Caspian is a great name and doesn't sound like you're trying too hard.

Other ideas:

Edwin

Rowan/Rowen

Christian

Sebastian/Sebastien

Adrian

Julian

Damian/Damien

Raphael/Rafael

Augustin/August

Hugo

Leo

Theodore/Theo

Etienne

Remi

In Response to New Bundles Make 8

I love the name Soraya. Someone pointed out to me that it sounds like psoriasis, which is a bummer, but something to be aware of I guess. It still doesn’t ruin the name for me. Lacey seems kind of...fluffy? next to Soraya. Sawyer is too close to Soraya IMO and could cause confusion. Savannah and Calliope are also very close in sound to Soraya. But you could also use any of those as middle names. I noticed you have two kids with E names, two with A names, and one B. So you could go with another B name and two of the same, if you wanted to continue the pattern. Other names you might like... Girls: Opal Melody Justine Brooke Penelope Persephone Juniper Ocean Kiara Ramona Autumn Meadow Rae Harlow Harper Delaney Maya Boys: Soren Stellan Brody Ruben/Reuben Cassius Landen/Landon Asher Lucas or Luca Jackson Wyatt Connor Hayes Eli Owen Micah Gender neutral: Cody Robin Rowan/Rowen Adrian Lake Remy/Remi Quinn Finn Kai Rory Combos: Savannah, Brooke, & Sawyer Soraya, Juniper, & Stellan Soraya, Brooke, & Justice Soraya, Justine, & Brooks Soraya, Juniper, & Landen Soraya, Melody, & Cassius Soraya, Opal, & Asher Soraya, Opal, & Adrian Calliope, Savannah, & Brooks Calliope, Savannah, & Adrian Opal, Juniper, & Brooks Lacey, Autumn, & Sawyer Delphine, Opal, & Cassius Remy, Lake, & Quinn Opal, Melody, & Brooks Opal, Melody, & Sawyer Remy, Opal, & Hayes Calliope, Juniper, & Soren Calliope, Opal, & Sawyer Calliope, Opal, & Soren Calliope, Ramona, & Brooks Willow, Cody, & Hayes Robin, Rory, & Brooks Robin, Ramona, & Brooks Calliope, Brooke, & Cody

In Response to Naming my daughter

My vote is for Maya. Maya & Dylan is very cute.

Also, you could even give her two middle names and have her initials spell MAYA...

i.e. Maya Alison Yvonne Alexander

or Maya Ariel Yara Alexander

or Maya April Yolanda Alexander
