Help! I don’t think it is possible for me to find a name I love as much as my first daughter’s name- [name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] [name_f]Aline[/name_f] (with [name_f]Rosie[/name_f] as a nickname.) It meets all of the criteria we were shooting for: honor/family names ([name_f]Mary[/name_f] and [name_f]Aline[/name_f]), old lady/vintage/classic feel, long/romantic feel, precious nickname, and uncommon enough but not strange. I’ve poured over lists and have some contenders (For first and/or middle names) below but am hoping someone can come up with ideas I haven’t thought of, or help me select which one fits best. It also needs to fit with a potential future boy who would be named [name_m]Watson[/name_m] [name_u]Everett[/name_u] (nn [name_m]Rhett[/name_m]).
Clara - family name, but also a friend’s daughter’s name and may be too common
Carolina - nickname “[name_f]Cece[/name_f]” (Would honor a grandmother named [name_f]Carolyn[/name_f])
Cecelia- nickname “[name_f]Cece[/name_f]” (no family connection)
Elodie - nn “[name_f]Ellie[/name_f]” ([name_f]Elodie[/name_f] is a family name)
Vivienne - nn “[name_f]Vivi[/name_f]” ([name_f]May[/name_f] be too common, no family connection)
Estelle - nn “[name_f]Stella[/name_f]” ([name_f]Estelle[/name_f] is a family name)
Angeline - nn “[name_u]Angel[/name_u]” ([name_f]Angeline[/name_f] is a family name)
Camilla - nn “[name_f]Millie[/name_f]”
Anna-[name_f]Clara[/name_f] or [name_f]Anna[/name_f]-[name_u]Marie[/name_u] ([name_f]Clara[/name_f] and [name_u]Marie[/name_u] are family names; I love double barreled names but don’t want her to end up being called just “[name_f]Anna[/name_f]”)
Names that I like but can’t use:
[name_f]Clementine[/name_f] and [name_f]Violet[/name_f] (I don’t want to continue the “nature” name theme)
[name_f]Penelope[/name_f] and [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]- nn “[name_f]Poppy[/name_f]” (my husband hates them)
If you made it through that novel, thank you! I appreciate the help!
