We're looking for strong girls names with spunk for our daughter. No wilting flowers need apply. Ideally the name wouldn't be in the top 50-100 most popular, but we're struggling a bit for ideas. What should we name her?
Hey Green, need some help with naming my newborn. We came up with first name some time ago, but not middle name. And since she has now been born this became a more pressing issue. First name - Zoe, last name - long, russian/jewish, something like, but not, Shostakovich. Trying to find something that flows/sounds good. Bonus points - starts with a V or an F. Potentially OK with more obscure names.

We are looking into baby names, and really like the nickname Molly. I thought Molly was a nickname for Margaret, but apparently it has traditionally been a nickname for Mary. Would it be weird to name our baby Margaret, but call her Molly? Should we just name her Molly?
My husband and I are expecting our first child, a girl, due in 2 months and are having a serious naming dilemma. We are both worried about the possibility of our chosen name leading to teasing. [more inside]
So my wife is pregnant. Hooray! (Still early enough that we don't know the gender). We're starting to think about names. It seems to me that the world's great hope and story of progress is the expansion of rights and consideration of the views & interests of an ever-widening swath of humanity. Which historical figures stand for pluralism, for rejecting provincialism, in word or deed? I've picked up, but haven't yet read Kwame Anthony Appiah's Cosmopolitanism; I'd be grateful for suggestions of books or other resources that might be useful. [more inside]

I'm looking for suggestions for monosyllabic girl names that are more unique/interesting than things like "Ann" or "Jane" or "Sue" but still familiar enough that my as-yet-unnamed fetus won't have to go through life spelling out BOTH her first and last names for people.

This question was asked a long time ago with no successful answer. I'm wondering if, since the world of online video has exploded so much, it can be answered now.

Anyone? [more inside]
