It's so hard to choose! There are a lot of great names on this list. But I guess I like Harper the best! I like that the sounds aren't too feminine but it still sounds nice. I also love that it's occupational. Harper means a harp-player or musician!

In Response to Thoughts on these

Cormac Jack - I love both names but I think they rhyme a little too much to put together. Alternatives: Corvin, Macsen, Corbin, Maxwell, Cortland, Macallister

Bernard Jack - I like it!

Marcel Jack - Interesting! The only issue is Marcel & Jack feel very different. Otherwise, I like it!

Cyprian Jack - This is my favourite on this list. I love Cyprian and Jack, and they sound lovely together.

Raphael Jack - I like this a lot too!

I pronounce most of these as "line," as in, a line to buy tickets. However, there are a few weird ones I naturally pronounce as leen or lin. 











This is such an interesting question - I'm particularly curious about Evangeline! I love the name, but I'm not sure how I would pronounce it. I am leaning towards "leen" though.

In Response to 12 Dancing Princesses

I usually don't love hyphenated names but I thought it would be a good way to get more letters in... So! Alphabetical, starting with A-B:














And just to round it off, perhaps their mom is named Yolanda-Zoe or something.
