I think that with the new Wonder Woman movie coming out in 2017 that Diane/Diana will be very popular again.  Good choice.  As to the other name suggestions- there are so many great British names.  Imogen and Isla are two of my favorites.  I can see how Harriet, Matilda and Maisie would appeal to a lot of people too.  Love this post.

What about the name Gareth?  It's not completely common but sounds pretty traditional to my mind.  Thomas would be something to consider, Robert, William- those are all more common, but seem to go in line with your other names.  As would James, but that's a single syllable.  Also, Adric struck me- not completely common but not uncommon either.  Also, there's Eric, which is a variant of Frederick, I think- and there was a Prince Eric in the Little Mermaid :)  He would have become a king eventually.  Another thought that I will throw out there- Charlton, you could call him Charlie- and I know it ends with an "N" but your husband seems to like "N" endings and it is similar enough to Charles.  Good luck!

I would love it if Mycroft took off in England! It does shorten to Mike :)

In Response to The Name of the Future

My youngest's full name is "Ilyra" and this is what my brother and my sister in law started calling her for short, except they pronounce it "Illy" but when they write it they spell it just like that.  Not a huge fan of it, myself, but she seems to like it so that's all that matters in the end.

I have been reading the books in A Song of Fire and Ice for years (George R R Martin is a genius!) and just recently got the first season of Game of Thrones on Blu-Ray.  It is a racy show, but I think the whole point of Daenerys as a character is that she overcomes much in her life- whether she falls in the end or not, she is a confident woman who wasn't afraid to chase her goals despite growing up with an abusive brother and no real memories of her parents.  I actually think it would be b.a. if Daenerys and Rob Stark ended up getting married and conquering the most irritating of all families in the series- the Lannisters (but keep Tyrion alive please!) But I am just dreaming there, thus George R R Martin's genius in that I have no idea where he is actually going with all of this. I digress.  I think that parents who want to instill a sense of perseverence in their daughters will be able to tell them that.  Just my two cents...
