I agree with those who said that Sylvie is their favorite.  Cora also came to mind, but I'm sure you've already ruled out the name.

This is very strange. I hope it wasn't taken down because of a negative comment. Quick question: What is your first impression when you hear the name Cordelia?

MatchMaker looks like fun! I have a quick question for Laura or those who have signed up for MatchMaker: Is there an option to narrow searches down to English/British names? I didn't see the option on the video demo, but I might have overlooked it. My computer isn't a big fan of video, so it was a bit hard for me to see all the details. Thanks!

Miley also fell from #128 to #189. The total number of babies given this name decreased from 2,641 to 1,716.

I am not surprised by Isabella's rise at all, but I thought Emily would be in the #4 slot. I thought Emma would have fallen farther as well. To those who predicted Bella's rise, you were right. It is up to #58 from #122. Barack didn't crack the top 1000. What a great day!

In Response to Name Spotlight: Sawyer

I'm another one from New England who says SOY-er and ING-lish. I have had a few conversations about the word "rather." I say it in a way that rhymes with father (and has the same cadence). I don't draw out the "a" sound. When the "a" sound is drawn out (raaahther), it sounds pretentious to me. Friends have made fun of me, for they pronounce the "a" like "apple." I'm not sure how this word is pronounced in different regions. Welcome to baby Caroline and baby Albert!

It is wonderful to hear that Max and Eleanor have arrived, and that hyz has a little one on the way. Congratulations to all! @Summer like the season - I've mentioned in a post ages ago that I rarely have to spell my name, surprisingly. The Eleanor spelling seems to be the assumed spelling. I'm happy to see the name being used again more frequently, and I think it offers a lot of nickname options. I'll also mention again that I have synesthesia. Maybe there is a higher proportion among NEs? I see Eleanor as a rose color and Edward as a green, similar to some other NEs. How fun!
