    I love Isla, it sounds very pretty with your last name. Maybe in the spirit of the less common first names with the more common middle names, Isla Anne Butera?

    I think everyone’s going to end up butchering Isla and pronounce it Is-la like Isla Fisher… but I still think it’s gorgeous even mispronounced πŸ™‚

    Not a fan of Autumn, but I do like Norah too.

    Honesty, Norah is perfect.  I don’t know why, I just feel it is perfect for you, zippy.  I love it with the last name, it is classic and simple but somewhat alternative and beautiful.  I love it.

    I love Nora, although I think Isla is really pretty as well.

    I think it would be pretty as Isla Rose or Isla Marie.

    Isla is really pretty, Norah as well. My personal favourite is Autumn, but that is because it seems so different from any other name lately.

    They are all so pretty but I think Autumn sounds best with your last name!

     I also think that Isla might be pronounced Is-La  But with that said, nearly everyone pronounces my daughter’s name wrong/spells it wrong.  So if you like it, do it!  I like that name.

    1. Isla Olivia Butera 2. Norah Jane Butera  3. Autumn Elizabeth

    I really like Autumn Elizabeth, though I might be biased because my middle name is Elizabeth πŸ™‚ And also, I knew a girl named Isla in high school and she was…let’s just say no one liked Isla πŸ™‚ Haha.

    I really do like the name Autumn, though!

    ETA: About the girl Isla I knew, every year on the first day of school/if we had a substitute teacher, they would always call her “Is-la” when they called attendance and it made her SO mad. It’s not a huge deal, but just something to think about.

    It is rare that I like someone’s selections of names so much. My first thought when I see those names is “oh no, Isla!” Isla is unfortunately crazily popular in the UK and there will be lots of other little Islas about her age. I totally love Isla (it is one of my very favourite names) but I would be weary of because of the popularity in the UK Top 100 baby names over the past few years (I am such a geek to pay close attention to such things). Autumn I think is really nice and has lovely connotations. Norah is pretty too, though old-fashioned but I’m not sure it matters for such a classic name. Either way, you can’t go wrong, they’re all lovely names. πŸ™‚

    ETA: Although, I would add that I think Isla’s popularity means it is less likely to be mispronounced (though some people always will).

    I love all three, though I think I like Isla the best with his last name. What about Isla Grace?
