I think Hudson Charles sounds much nicer. Hudson Lexington is too much.

In Response to Prominent Namesakes

I love the basis behinds the names you've chosen for your children!

Some ideas I have to for girls to include in your list may be

Jane, after Dr. Jane Goodall.

Perhaps considering Sarah and Angelina (nn Nina), for the Grimke sisters, two prominant women's rights activists and abolitionists.

Susan ( Susan B. Anthony.)  

Elizabeth works for two people, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Elizabeth Blackwell, who was the first female doctor in the US.

I also thought of Amelia for Amelia Earhart, which would be a great tie in to your son Wright.

In Response to Too boring??

I love Elijah and Tristan.

But I personally feel that because Sarah is incredibily popular it has become really boring.

In Response to Thoughts on Hugh?

I feel that Hugh doesn't really fit as well with the names of your other sons. I feel that it is hard to pronounce, and can end up being 'you' or 'huge'.

In Response to Robin or Robyn

I like both, but I feel that since this name is going to be in tribute to someone, you should spell it the way they did, which is why Robin may be the better choice for your child.

I really think that you have so many other wonderful choices, and that you should go with one of those. Ditmas is just a bad combo of sounds. If it is truly special to you and your husband, I would put it in the middle name spot.

I prefer James Bell. I think James Rose is a bit too rhymey

I feel that if you're using Kit as the nickname (which is wonderful, by the way!), it would make the most sense to us Katherine. I feel like her name will always be misspelled if you use Catherine with the nickname Kit.

My first thought was that Poppy and Piper are a bit too similar for me, but I really liked the above commenters idea on balancing it out by giving the other twin a T name, like Tatum.

As far as your other names, I like most of them, but I don't feel like Ruby and Madison go as well with your other name choices.

As a person with a hyphenated name, I am strongly against hyphenating. It's going to cause so many problems. Most databases, like for hospitals and schools, don't process the hyphen, so important paperwork gets lost all the time. A lot of ID cards or bank cards won't print the hyphen on the card, but the legal ID will, so you often can't buy things with a card because they don't match. It's just going to be a big hassle. I know from firsthand experience.

I'm sorry, but I really think that they sound much too similiar. I think it will create some serious confusion.

July 5, 2015 01:09 PM

I like Elora the best.

July 5, 2015 01:08 PM

Oliver is without a doubt, my favorite on your list.

In Response to Baby Season?? Part 6

Shania, Shailene, and Serena are my favorites. I feel like Sophia and Stacy would be way out of place with your other children's names, they are just too common and basic next to your unique group.

June 21, 2015 10:28 PM

I like all of your ideas except Olga and Heloisa. Olga just seemsvery rough and choppy and like a mean old lady, and I can't get over the "hell" in Heloisa. But I thik all of your other choices are lovely! I personally like Eloisa and Adrian the best off both lists. I think that they're lovely, unique, but not so much so that people wont be able to spell or pronounce them.

Is Ephraim the name you're thinking about?

June 14, 2015 03:28 PM

This name is definitely not my taste. It sounds very made up and not in a good way. It just doesnt have anything going for it.

In Response to Celeste or Celestine?

I prefer Celeste.

I think out of your favorite, Caitlin would make the most sense for your age and area. I think Laurel is also a nice option, because it's similiar to your original name and can make the transistion easier.

Naomi and Noemi are actually two different names and not different spellings of the same name. They're pronounced NAY-owe-me and NO-em-ee, respectively.

In Response to Baby boy: Torrhen?

I like the name, but I also prefer a simpler spelling, such as Torren, Torin. GRRM likes to spell names in crazy ways, but I don't think that means we have to follow suit if we like them, (For example, you'd never spell the name Peter like Petyr Baelish does).

I really do like the name, and I also love GOT. That being said, even though he's a minor character, he isn't that great. He was "The King That Knelt". He took a bunch of men to war against the Targaryens, thousands of men died in the march, and then when he got there he decided not to try and defend the north anyways.

Now all that doesn't really matter unless you're a really avid fan of the show and/or books. It's got a great sound.
