A reader named Michelle has a son named Saylor Dorian. She’s expecting a baby girl in May and would like some name suggestions. She says:
We originally picked shiloh for a girl but we aren’t liking how popular it’s getting [due to a celebrity finding it first..grrr] we want a unique name that’s still ‘easy on the ears’ as in easy to get used to. I try to stay away from the too feminine popular vowel names like ava, bella, etc… though we like them we don’t want a trendy name like piper, stella, etc…
We are currently tossing around names like vega, remy…. though what i loved about shiloh was that O ending.. but we are open to whatever.
First let’s try to come up some more o-endings. How about:

A reader named Kelly is expecting her second daughter in May, and she’d appreciate a few name suggestions. She writes:
Our first daughter, Maeve, was named really easily, and we grow to love the name more and more. However, we are having an exceptionally difficult time finding a second girl’s name that we like as much. I especially like Gaelic/Celtic names, but am willing to consider other options as well.
Here are some names that I think could work with Maeve:

Estelle wrote to me recently with a tall order:
I’m having quads (!!!) in 4 weeks and I need names! I’m having one boy and three girls. My 4 year old son’s name is Cosmo. My husband and I like spacey, whimsical and weird names.
In fact, they “don’t have any limits on how weird a name can be.”
One girl name they’re considering is Ione, which is a family name.
The combination of Cosmo and the adjective “spacey” made me think of star and constellation names right off the bat:
One nice thing about these is that several together probably wouldn’t scream “star names” to the average person. Unlike, say, a group of flower names. (Though I’m sure stargazers would catch on pretty quickly.)
And here’s what we have for non-galactic suggestions:
Those were the girl names, these are the boy names:
