Hi Duana, I have been reading your column religiously in hopes that you would suggest a boy name that would solve all my boy-naming problems. This hasn’t happened yet, so I am just going to ask outright. My husband and I are having our first baby at the end of February (gender unknown) and we are having such a hard time finding a boy name that we love. Full Article

Dear Sasha, I dated H for a few weeks and I liked him. Even though I thought things were going well, he suddenly wanted to be friends. I was confused and obviously disappointed, but c'est la vie. Fast forward a few weeks later where my friend R tells me that H reached out to her, supposedly, after he ended things with me, and they really feel like they have a strong connection. Full Article

A lot of people don’t like this dress. I think that’s crazy. I love how the bust line goes UP instead of straight across or sweetheart or V. You can rarely go wrong on an off-the-shoulder, especially when there’s so much structure to it. And then the delicate pleated chiffon hem detail at the bottom? Come on. Full Article

Hi Duana, My husband and I are having our first baby - a boy - in the next couple of weeks and we're having a hard time coming up with a trilingual name for him.

Hi Duana, My husband and I are currently expecting our second at the end of April and we just found out that its a boy. I'm not going to lie, you have totally sold me on the name Damian - I love it so much, as does my husband. It's classic, uncommon but not unknown, and goes well as a sibling with our daughter's name. Full Article
