Here’s my ranking :slight_smile: (1 is what I voted for)

[name]Elsa[/name] (nn [name]Elsie[/name]) - 4
[name]Joss[/name] - 6
[name]Evangeline[/name] (nn [name]Evie[/name]) - 1
[name]Dessa[/name] (nn Dess) - 5
[name]Hadley[/name] (nn Haddie) - 3
[name]Tessa[/name] (nn [name]Tess[/name]) - 2

Here’s the names in the order I would vote for them:
[name]Tessa[/name] nn [name]Tess[/name] - I love this name! Although I hadn’t thought of it with your surname so clearly. Might be a bit S heavy. But SUCH a lovely name!
[name]Joss[/name] - If this had been [name]Jocelyn[/name] nn [name]Joss[/name] it would definitely have been No 1. It’s so perfect with [name]Finleigh[/name].
[name]Elsa[/name] - This goes well with your surname but not as well with [name]Finleigh[/name].
[name]Hadley[/name] - Although I think this goes well with [name]Finleigh[/name], I think with your surname it sounds a bit like a firm.
[name]Evangeline[/name] - I don’t think this goes well with [name]Finleigh[/name] at all, but it is a pretty name.
[name]Dessa[/name] - It just doesn’t measure up to [name]Tessa[/name] for me.


My preferences in order:

[name]Tessa[/name] - [name]Love[/name] and so cute with [name]Finleigh[/name]
[name]Joss[/name] - if the given name is [name]Jocelyn[/name] nn [name]Joss[/name] then this is adorable. [name]Do[/name] not care for given name [name]Joss[/name].
[name]Elsa[/name] - ok but not as lovely as others. I like [name]Elsie[/name] nn. Good match with [name]Finleigh[/name]
[name]Hadley[/name] - cute but a little rhymey with [name]Finleigh[/name] and the -ley/-leigh endings
[name]Evangeline[/name] - I don’t think this goes with [name]Finleigh[/name]'s style. But other names for nn [name]Evie[/name] might. [name]Eva[/name], [name]Eve[/name] do, maybe [name]Evelyn[/name].
[name]Dessa[/name] - this sounds made up to me and doesn’t compare with the lovely [name]Tessa[/name]!

[name]Elsa[/name] (nn [name]Elsie[/name]) - Pretty, but i dont think it goes well with your first daughters name.
[name]Joss[/name] - This seems very plain to me. DD1 has a very petty unique name. i dont think it works.
[name]Evangeline[/name] (nn [name]Evie[/name]) - This is a very gorgeous name and [name]Finn[/name] and [name]Evie[/name] flow well.
[name]Dessa[/name] (nn Dess) - Im sorry this reminds me of a cows name. Much because of the simularity to [name]Bess[/name] (sorry to anyone with the names!)
[name]Hadley[/name] (nn Haddie) - I had a cousin named [name]Hadley[/name], who passed away last chirstmas when she was 14 months old so im slightly biast to this name. I think its a very pretty name and Haddie is a adorable nn!I also think [name]Hadley[/name] and [name]Finleigh[/name] so rather nice.
[name]Tessa[/name] (nn [name]Tess[/name]) - ditto to [name]Dessa[/name], sorry:(

hope that helps! My order would be [name]Hadley[/name], [name]Evangeline[/name], [name]Elsa[/name], [name]Tessa[/name], [name]Dessa[/name], [name]Joss[/name].
I voted [name]Hadley[/name]:slight_smile:

With [name]Finleigh[/name]…

I think [name]Tessa[/name] works best. [name]Tess[/name] and [name]Finn[/name] sound nice together although I think [name]Tess[/name] is still a little to feminine next to [name]Finn[/name]. [name]Joss[/name] and [name]Finn[/name] sound equally unisex to me so I would vote [name]Joss[/name] but only as a nn for something else, [name]Josephine[/name] or [name]Jocelyn[/name] for example. [name]Evangeline[/name] is my favourite name out of all of them but [name]Evangeline[/name] and [name]Finleigh[/name] don’t have the same feel/style. [name]Elsa[/name] is the same category as [name]Evangeline[/name] for me on this one. I don’t like [name]Dessa[/name] and [name]Hadley[/name], although it works with [name]Finleigh[/name], just seems too boyish for me.

Good [name]Luck[/name]:slight_smile:

Okay, I’m biased. [name]Elsa[/name] is my [name]FAVORITE[/name] name! (I’ve always dreamed of having a daughter named [name]Elsa[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]…) However, that being said, I don’t think it flows well with your surname and/or [name]Finleigh[/name].

And I love the [name]Evie[/name]/[name]Finn[/name] combo, but like somebody else mentioned earlier…I don’t think [name]Evangeline[/name] and [name]Finleigh[/name] “fit” because Evangline is cleary a girl’s name while [name]Finleigh[/name] is in the unisex camp. So for that reason, I’m voting for [name]Hadley[/name]. Haddie and [name]Finn[/name] sound adorable together! :slight_smile:

I just don’t like the name [name]Evangeline[/name] but like nn evie. [name]Hadley[/name] is too matchy w ur daughters name. All your other choices are wonderful.

I voted for [name]Tessa[/name]. I like [name]Tess[/name] and [name]Finn[/name] together.

In order

[name]Dessa[/name] - all though I’ve never heard of this name. I’m not 100% sold on this one.
