    See, I would pronounce that Kai-ree. But maybe?
    And I agree, for matching names, Jacob and Josie are really nice together! I wish I’d found out if Josie was short for something longer.

    Kids at work:
    Sydney, Jack, and Reese (girl)
    Jacob and Josie (twins)
    Trixee
    Adalgisa
    Anthony
    Kiley (girl, spelling uncertain) who was also called just Kile (like Kyle).

    Not kids at work:
    Audra
    James and a girl name that’s pronounced keer-ee-ay. Maybe Kirie? They’re twins.

    I like Aurelia – It’s similar enough to Aurora to not seem over the top, and it’s pretty and would fit in with names today. Octavia, however, screams Ancient Rome/The Hunger Games (most of the rich people in the society the books are essentially attacking have Roman names).

    Hm. I like it because I like the nickname Tim, and Timmy’s cute on a kid. But then, the fact that it has “moth” in it really does not appeal to me…. I don’t think there’s any other way to get Tim/Timmy, and I think it’s a solid, well-known but a little underused name. I just don’t think I’d personally use it….

    I like te flow of Dashiell Mark better, but I am really not a fan of Dash or Dashiell. Dash sounds like such a stereotypical dumb and mean high school football player name to me. Sorry :/ or like that kid from The Incredibles, and his name was meant as a joke, because he runs fast… I don’t know, I’ve just really never liked it much.
    And Dashiell, while I’ve only heard it pronounce dash-ul, really does look like it should be dash-ee-ul, along the lines of Gabriel or Ariel… I don’t think it would be too big of a problem, but I think there will inevitably be people who pronounce it wrong.
    Mark is such a nice classic name, but Mark Dashiell sounds a little forced. I think the flow would ultimately depend on the last name, though.

    Does anyone else not remember if North West is a boy or a girl? I can’t be bothered to Google it, but… I feel like this is the danger of giving your kid a word instead of a name for a name….

    Thought of elves immediately. As much of a fantasy fan as I am, I don’t think I could use something so obvious sounding. And I agree, Elvis comes to mind too.
    I’ve heard Elvira before (not sure if that’s the spelling), but that’s kinda pretty and similar?

    Carey and Corey are good ideas I totally disn’t think of. Couldn’t use Avery, it’s all male to me. I’m kind if leaning toward Corey or Reese rght now – I’ll have to think on it a while still. Hmm.

    Today at work I met sisters Justyce and Jurnee. There was a brother, too, but I didn’t catch his name…
    Also multiple Isabellas and a Trinity.

    I really like Gwen, but I’m not too crazy about Gwendolynz something about it seems over the top fantasy type bame to me, even though it’s pretty. I don’t really know if I’d like just Gwen as a full bame though, it seems so short…

    Hmm, better than I thought of at least. I have such a hard time imagining Audrey on a boy or Adrian on a girl though (Adrienne, maybe). Reese could work maybe. Open to any other ideas you guys may think of.

    I like it a lot!
    I wouldn’t personally use it because I had a friend named Domanique, and I think it’s too similar for me to be comfortable with, but I really think it’s a cool name!

    Promise – I feel like Britta is even worse of a product name. I don’t specifically think of Jetta as a car, but Brita is easily the most popular brand of water filter. At least where I live, everyone knows that if you say “Brita,” you mean the pitcher of filtered water.

    I like Celina with Claire a lot! (I prefer the Selena spelling, but I see the appeal of matching names)
    I like Chloe a lot, but I do persinally think it’s too similar to Claire. I’d aim for something a bit less L-heavy.

    I also really like Cora, Cassidy, Charlotte, and Camille. Some other ones: Carolyn, Candice, Cara, Catherine, Caitlyn, Cynthia, Corinne/a, Ceara, Casey, Charlise, Celia, Carrie, Carys, Celeste, Colleen, Cassandra, Cherise…

    I’ve started working for my local Girl Scout council, so I think I’m going to be hearing a lot more little kid names soon! Today I heard:
    Talyn (girl)
    Isabelle
    Laurel and Levi (siblings. There was another little girl, too, but she wasn’t being loud so her mom didn’t yell her name at all)
    Athena (parent, but I love it!)

    I’m not a fan, really. I knew one in high school, and people always assumed it was was pronounced with a G like in gum, not like in gem. I’ve always sort of thought it seemed a little too much like words like gum and gem, actually. It’s just not that appealing to me. I like Emma or Jenna a lot more….

    I like it, but really only as a nickname for Therese/a. On it’s own it’s super nicknamey to me. Honestly I like just the nickname Tess even more, though.
