[name]Lemon[/name] - sorry for all the CAPS below. I thought it would be easier to see the diff. of mine from yours if I did that. I copied and pasted yours b/c I couldn’t remember everything you said. lol
[name]Anissa[/name] - I don’t think it is in the same style as your other kids’ names. It seems too unique to go with the sophisticated and simple [name]Jacob[/name] and [name]Alanna[/name], and I don’t like both [name]Alanna[/name] and [name]Anissa[/name] beginning with A.
THAT IS QUITE ALRIGHT B/C I [name]DON[/name]'T CARE FOR THE NAME THAT MUCH ANYWAY.
[name]Cadence[/name] - I simply don’t care for this name at all. I don’t think it is as pretty and feminine as [name]Alanna[/name], and I don’t think that is what you want. It would be a nice middle name.
THIS HAS BEEN A NAME THAT HAS [name]JUST[/name] BEEN THERE, I REALLY LIKED IT IN THE BEGINNING AND IT HAS STAYED ON OUR LIST ALL THE [name]WAY[/name] THROUGH THE PREGNANCY.
[name]Ella[/name] - Not a stand-alone name in my opinion, so I think it should get the axe.
I [name]DO[/name] LIKE SOME OF THE OTHER NAMES MUCH MORE. IT IS A PRETTY NAME, BUT LIKE YOU [name]SAID[/name] NOT A STAND ALONE NAME
[name]Juliana[/name] - Very pretty name! It kind of rhymes with [name]Alanna[/name] (they both end in -anna/-ana = bad!), so I personally think [name]Julia[/name] would be better. But, it begins with the same letter as [name]Jacob[/name].
HUBBY WON’T [name]DO[/name] [name]JULIET[/name]. AND FOR [name]BOTH[/name] OF US [name]JULIA[/name] IS A [name]LITTLE[/name] BLAH.
[name]Josephine[/name] - Again, not in the same style, so use as a middle name if anything.
I KNOW IT’S OFF FROM THE STYLES, BUT AGAIN I LIKE THIS ONE AFTER MY GREAT-AUNT. I’VE BEEN TRYING SINCE [name]ALANNA[/name] TO USE THIS NAME AND HE FINALLY [name]SAID[/name] MAYBE! I DOUBT IT [name]WILL[/name] BE THE [name]BABY[/name]'S NAME BUT IT IS ALSO A CONTENDER FOR A MN NOW.
[name]Rozlynn[/name] - I think you know my opinions on this one. If you want an Irish name, use [name]Rosaleen[/name] as a middle name. I love that!
LOL - I THINK I KNOW EVERYONE’S OPINION ON THIS ONE!
[name]Sarai[/name]/[name]Sariah[/name] - If you are going to use one, I’d go with [name]Sariah[/name], because [name]Sarai[/name] seems too close to the Bible in my opinion. [name]Sariah[/name] is cute, as is the nickname [name]Sari[/name]. I really preferred [name]Sarina[/name] because I thought it was a similar name with a more modern feel to match [name]Alanna[/name], but if you don’t care for it, then nix it.
I LIKE EITHER [name]SARAI[/name] OR [name]SARIAH[/name]. I WAS ACTUALLY SURPRISED HUBBY [name]SAID[/name] YES TO THIS. AND ALSO HUBBY WAS THE ONE WHO [name]SAID[/name] HE’D RATHER HAVE [name]ANISSA[/name] ON THE LIST THAN [name]SARINA[/name], WHICH SURPRISED ME B/C HE’S THE ONE WHO PUT THAT NAME ON THE LIST!
[name]Shayla[/name] - This seems dated (and honestly a tad low-class…sorry!), so I wouldn’t use it. I personally think there are much better Irish names out there, as this one is American, not Irish. Similar Irish names are [name]Shannon[/name]/[name]Shannen[/name], [name]Shea[/name], and [name]Sheila[/name]. Of those, [name]Shannon[/name] goes best.
I [name]DO[/name] NOT LIKE [name]SHANNON[/name] OR [name]SHEILA[/name] - I GREW UP WITH WAAAAY TO MANY OF THEM. I LIKE [name]SHEA[/name], BUT I AM NOT FOND OF 1 SYLLABLE FN. I’D PREFER [name]SHEA[/name] AS A MN. AS FAR AS THE IRISH THING - [name]SHAYLA[/name] IS THE ONLY NAME WE [name]BOTH[/name] LIKE. THERE ARE SO MANY IRISH NAMES THAT ARE SO POPULAR THAT IT [name]JUST[/name] KIND OF TURNED US OFF - [name]RILEY[/name] (WHICH WAS THE ORIGINAL NAME WE HAD PICKED OUT FOR HER BEFORE WE KNEW SHE WAS A GIRL), [name]REAGAN[/name], [name]MCKENNA[/name], [name]MCKENZIE[/name], ETC. AND ANOTHER PROBLEM IS HUBBY HAS 22 COUSINS AND THEY ALL, YES ALL, HAVE IRISH NAMES. SO WE’RE KIND OF LIMITED TO WHAT WE COULD USE.
[name]Sienna[/name] - Very popular in my experience, and I think it might match too much with [name]Alanna[/name], but not with [name]Jacob[/name]. Also, if you don’t love it, I think it is a no-go. What is her nickname, then, too?
I HAVE NEVER [name]EVEN[/name] THOUGHT ABOUT A NN FOR THIS. SIEN, [name]ENNA[/name]??? WHO KNOWS! LOL
I like [name]Sariah[/name] [name]Josephine[/name], [name]Sienna[/name] [name]James[/name] sounds nice, too. Hubby likes [name]Shayla[/name] [name]James[/name].
