2 more weeks....

So I haven’t posted for a little, but that’s because I had kind of exhausted the question! As some of you may remember, I’m due w my third little girl. But now that due date is exactly 2 weeks away today! AHH! We had originally been choosing between [name]Leah[/name], [name]Lilah[/name], and [name]Tess[/name], but we kind of out-ed [name]Lilah[/name] when our neighbors named their dog that… kind of annoying, but oh well. So we’ve been pretty much settled on [name]Leah[/name] for a while, just because we prefer our whole “[name]Leah[/name]” combo to our “[name]Tess[/name]” combo. But I figured I’d just check in here once more before she’s born!
So it is either [name]Leah[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Kate[/name] or [name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanora[/name] [name]Mary[/name]!
My other girls, by the way, are [name]Ellie[/name] and [name]Clare[/name].
Thanks All!

OH and also I forgot to add - if you have a really cute last minute [name]Tess[/name] combo we’d love to hear it!

Have you considered [name]Tessa[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Kate[/name]?
I love [name]Tessa[/name]! (especially with your other daughter’s names). I like [name]Leah[/name] too, but I don’t think it’s a distinct from [name]Ellie[/name] as [name]Tessa[/name] is.

[name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanora[/name] [name]Kate[/name]! I like [name]Tess[/name]/[name]Tessa[/name] a lot, but the [name]Leah[/name] combo is beautiful.

I really like [name]Leah[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Kate[/name], especially since [name]Tess[/name] (or [name]Tessa[/name]) sounds like more of a nickname to me. And I’m biased in that I have long loved the name [name]Leah[/name]. That said, [name]Tessa[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Kate[/name] is also pretty and flows really well. [name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanora[/name] [name]Mary[/name] doesn’t flow so well to me. Good luck!

Oh, I so love [name]Tess[/name]! I remember you posting, but I don’t remember all of the suggestions and such. I don’t dislike [name]Leah[/name], but I love [name]Tess[/name] :slight_smile: I think the “[name]Mary[/name]” portion of [name]Tess[/name] [name]Elenora[/name] [name]Mary[/name] is throwing it off. Also, is it okay that you have a daughter [name]Ellie[/name] and [name]Tess[/name]'s middle name is [name]Elenora[/name]? [name]Ellie[/name] is a nn for [name]Elenora[/name]…just thought I’d point it out :slight_smile:
Here’s a few more combos: (I tried to include parts of your other combos in these, and also variations of [name]Mary[/name])

[name]Tess[/name] [name]Amelia[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Juliana[/name] [name]Meryl[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Luciana[/name] [name]Maren[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Isabella[/name] [name]Marika[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Gabriella[/name] [name]Jolie[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Georgiana[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Maria[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name] [name]Claire[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Miranda[/name] [name]Jade[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Natalia[/name] [name]Eve[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Violet[/name] [name]Bryn[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Delaney[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Rebecca[/name] [name]Noel[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Elenora[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]

I think the ones I liked the most had 1 syllable on either side of a 3 syllable name. :slight_smile:

I love both names, and I think [name]Tess[/name] and [name]Leah[/name] both go beautifully with your girls’ names. But I agree there’s something slightly out about [name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanora[/name] [name]Mary[/name] (although it’s not bad!). I actually think it’s the 4 syllables of [name]Eleanora[/name], where it should be 3. [name]How[/name] about:

[name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Mary[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Elena[/name] [name]Mary[/name]

Some other ideas (you seem to like names beginning with an E so I’ve combined these with your family names):
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Edwina[/name] [name]Mary[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Elaina[/name] [name]Maren[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Elodie[/name] [name]May[/name]/[name]Mae[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Eloise[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Erica[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Mary[/name] [name]Eliza[/name]

Good luck and look forward to hearing whether she’s a [name]Leah[/name] or a [name]Tess[/name]! :slight_smile:

[name]Tess[/name] [name]Felicity[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]

[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Caroline[/name] [name]Jade[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Claudine[/name] [name]Veronica[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Heloise[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Juniper[/name] [name]Fay[/name] or [name]Kay[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Katherine[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Rosalind[/name] [name]Willow[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Winifred[/name] [name]Claire[/name]

I love the idea of having her full name as [name]Tessa[/name] nn [name]Tess[/name].

I think [name]Leah[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Kate[/name] is gorgeous and flows beautifully. Between just the first names [name]Leah[/name] and [name]Tess[/name], [name]Leah[/name] is my favorite.
I like [name]Susan[/name]'s suggestions of [name]Tessa[/name] nn [name]Tess[/name] as well.

[name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanora[/name] [name]Marie[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name] [name]Fay[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanora[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] [name]Maeve[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Gwyneth[/name] [name]Mary[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Gwyneth[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Lauren[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Lilith[/name] [name]Wren[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Eulalie[/name] [name]Del[/name]

[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Clementine[/name] [name]Ivy[/name]

I just wanted to say I love [name]Susan[/name]'s - [name]Tessa[/name] [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Jane[/name], I almost suggested [name]Tess[/name] [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Jane[/name] and then realized it had already been mentioned.

I never really thought about [name]Tess[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Kate[/name]… does it sound better than [name]Leah[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Kate[/name]?
I reallly wish I loved [name]Tessa[/name], but I just dont! I just like [name]Tess[/name]. I feel like [name]Tess[/name] is more classic than [name]Tessa[/name], not sure why.
I really like the suggestion of [name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Mary[/name] and [name]Tess[/name] [name]Emmeline[/name] ___. I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Tess[/name] [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Jane[/name], but the only thing is my daughter [name]Ellie[/name] is [name]Ellie[/name] [name]Sarah[/name] [name]Jane[/name]. The issue I had with [name]Emmeline[/name] was similar in that my daughter [name]Clare[/name] is [name]Clare[/name] [name]Emily[/name] [name]Ann[/name]. I can’t help but lean toward [name]Leah[/name] cause the flow is better, I agree with whoever said that [name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanora[/name] [name]Mary[/name] was a little off with the 4 syllables in the middle. Is the flow of [name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Mary[/name] just as good? Or [name]Tess[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Kate[/name]?

[name]Hi[/name]! Between [name]Tess[/name] and [name]Leah[/name], I still love [name]Tess[/name], and really think it captures the comfy style of your daughters’ names.

Between [name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Mary[/name] and [name]Tess[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Kate[/name], I personally prefer [name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Mary[/name], but I think that [name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanora[/name] [name]Mary[/name] has a better flow than the other options.

Some more ideas (and I apologize for repeats):

[name]Tess[/name] [name]Evangeline[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]/[name]Kate[/name]/[name]Blythe[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Victoria[/name] [name]Blythe[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Valentine[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Amelia[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]/[name]Kate[/name]

Whichever beautiful name you choose, I wish you the best! :slight_smile:

Please keep us posted!

I think [name]Leah[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Kate[/name] is still in the lead for me, but if she seems more like a [name]Tess[/name] I’d go for [name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanor[/name] [name]Mary[/name]. But that’s just me!

I forgot to say that I really love [name]Leah[/name] [name]Evelyn[/name] [name]Kate[/name].

I personally [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Tess[/name]! I would absolutely use it if it weren’t for the last name. I think it has spunk and strength and a certain coziness about it. I spent a few days with a [name]Tess[/name] while doing this modeling thing and she was beautiful, kind, selfless and so down to earth… and I only knew her for a few days… so my associations are only positive with this name. And it fits beautifully with your other girls names.

Here are some other combinations (sorry if there are repeats…)

[name]Tess[/name] [name]Olivia[/name] [name]Mae[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Olivia[/name] [name]June[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Olivia[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Eliza[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Aurora[/name] [name]Eden[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanora[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Georgiana[/name] [name]Eve[/name]
[name]Tess[/name] [name]Arabella[/name] [name]Ivy[/name]

I really like [name]Tess[/name] [name]Olivia[/name] ___ personally.

[name]Tess[/name] [name]Olivia[/name] [name]Mae[/name] is pretty!

[name]Tess[/name] [name]Olivia[/name] [name]Mae[/name] is pretty![/quote]

OOO! VERY Pretty! :slight_smile:

I think both your names are gorgeous, but here’s what I would say. Though I prefer the name [name]Leah[/name] to [name]Tess[/name] because it has a deeper history, I think [name]Tess[/name] is by far the better choice in the context of your other daughter’s names. [name]Leah[/name] is [name]Ellie[/name] with the syllables reversed – I really think it’s just too much of an overlap to be your final choice. [name]Tess[/name] is distinct but very much in keeping with the style of the other girls’ names, which makes it a perfect choice.

You have lots of great combos that work with [name]Tess[/name], including your original idea. And I do believe you’re going to be much happier with [name]Tess[/name] in years to come than you will be finding yourself tripping over [name]Ellie[/name] [name]Leah[/name] [name]Leah[/name] [name]Ellie[/name] all the time…

I actually prefer [name]Tess[/name] [name]Eleanora[/name] [name]May[/name]. Good luck!
