baby girlWhen it comes to baby names, I'm a little greedy -- I like two first names. My daughter is "Lila Claire", and I do everything I can to keep the two names together instead of separating them.

I love the old-fashioned sound of these two-part first names. Also, it's a good way to use popular names and make them stand out a bit in the mix. For example, I've run into plenty of Lilas but never a Lila Claire.

Some people like to hyphenate them, while others just have them stand side-by-side. You can choose to do it however you wish. Here are 20 of my favorite double baby names that might make you second guess just choosing one.
