I love Yvette! It's so spirited...just a rockin' little name. Yve & Yvie would be adorable nicknames.
Gideon is in my top 10 for boys. I find it very handsome, but I don't know that it would ever make it to the very top of my list and be under serious consideration for a real child.
I want to like Esther. I try to like it, and sometimes I almost do, but it doesn't last. It falls flat for me: dusty, wrinkled, downbeat. It's a shame since I have several positive associations with the name, including the biblical figure. Even my own middle name is derived, in part, from Esther. Ah, well.
I have to pass on Sequoia. If you're Cherokee, and you really want to honor Sequoia's importance to your culture because that culture is such a big part of your life, then maybe. Otherwise, it's all SUVs and tall trees and sort of silly as a name.
