    Though I’ve never been crazy about Maud, I love the sound of Maud India Scarlett. You just may win me over to that name.

    I adore Cecily as a first name, and Marigold’s a fabulous middle. As far as the combinations go, I’m still liking Maud India Scarlett the best.

    She’s got the goods, I agree. I am just loving her to pieces. I’m still a touch worried that even with the lavish combo, she may be miffed tht her older sister has the regal girly name. I don’t know. But if I had her tomorrow, all things be hanged, Maud India Scarlett she’d be!

    Cecily honors the most, it’s a variation of my Babci’s name, I’ve mentioned before, Pandora’s his mom’s name (not that she goes by it) and Jane was my Mom’s middle. I know they aren’t most people’s cup of tea but they suit us very well and aren’t so far out that they belong on martians.

    Sorry you feel that way, Horrors. I’d rather my kids be & sound like old people than have them sound like three year olds forever! 😀
