Anybody up for a challenge?

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]!
I have been working on my names list and have solidified my Top 3. [name_m]Just[/name_m] for fun and for something to do I am working on 3 extra combos to maybe loosely create a Top 5-6, I prefer having smaller lists. Anyways, I have already a solid idea of what I am already looking for with some combos floating around already. Some of the requirements are or could be seen as abit “silly”, but please trust that they have some sort of meaning.

For a few general baseline rules that I usually follow are:

  • Not unisex.
  • I tend to like the sound of one name ending in ‘a’ beside one name not ending in ‘a’. That would be my favourite flow and it doesn’t matter order.
  • Ages well.

Now for the challenge:

Name 1 - I want initials S.L. as it has meaning to a very special place. I would prefer the middle name to be [name_f]Lily[/name_f] or [name_f]Lilia[/name_f] as [name_f]Lily[/name_f] is an honour. [name_f]My[/name_f] number one idea right now is [name_f]Sophia[/name_f] [name_f]Lily[/name_f] or [name_f]Sophie[/name_f] [name_f]Lilia[/name_f], but I would love fresh ideas to look over.

Name 2 - I would like the first name to be [name_u]Ivy[/name_u], I am pretty sure. As for the middle name, I am looking for something that is girly and ends in ‘a’ for sure. I would entertain [name_u]Ivy[/name_u] as the middle name instead if I found the right first name, but ending in ‘a’ still. [name_f]My[/name_f] first idea this far is [name_u]Ivy[/name_u] [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], but I am not so sure about it.

Name 3: This one I know the middle name will be [name_u]Rose[/name_u] as an honour. I haven’t been very keen on any [name_u]Rose[/name_u] variations as I would prefer this to be a direct honour. For the first name, I want the name to include the sound [name_u]Anne[/name_u] or [name_f]Anna[/name_f], but preferably not [name_f]Ana[/name_f] when pronounced “on-ah” as I have never been keen on that. I would entertain the “en-na” sound in replacement for [name_f]Anna[/name_f], but it wouldn’t be preferable unless it does just feel right. The one name I keep coming back to for this is [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] [name_u]Rose[/name_u], but I am not sure if it is perhaps too boring?

Phew! I appreciate it if you have made it to the end. I am super curious to see what all ideas you can come up with. I am sorry about the challenge here!! Thank you all :smiling_face:

[name_f]Hannah[/name_f] [name_u]Rose[/name_u] is cute, but I would consider it a very well used choice, but that doesn’t make it a bad one. It’s sweet and pretty even if it is a tad “boring” to some.

Some notes:

I don’t think [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] [name_u]Rose[/name_u] is boring at all. I think it’s lovely.

I can’t help but mention that Susannah/Susanna would hit a lot of your honoring goals all at once. It starts with S, it has the [name_f]Anna[/name_f] sound, ends in A, and it means “lily”. You may know that and have already rejected it, but I kept thinking about it over and over and needed to throw it on here.

To add on to what @somemelodioussonnet was saying, [name_f]Samantha[/name_f] and [name_f]Savannah[/name_f] also hit a few boxes since they start with S and have the Anne/Anna sound and end in A. And I send what they said about [name_f]Susannah[/name_f]. I feel like these options sort of combine some of the things you were looking for:
[name_f]Susannah[/name_f] [name_f]Lily[/name_f] (might be overkill on the “lily” :slight_smile: )
[name_f]Susannah[/name_f] [name_u]Rose[/name_u]

Thank you for all the great suggestions! I am definitely considering and looking into lots of these! I have enjoyed all the suggestions thus far :slightly_smiling_face:
As well as, it is gwtting my brainstorming going! Lots of beautiful suggestions :two_hearts:

As a bonus question: To help freshen up the combo [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] [name_u]Rose[/name_u], if I chose to stick with it. Could [name_f]Gracie[/name_f] and/or [name_f]Anya[/name_f] be a fresh nickname for it? Thoughts? Also open to other nickname options I may not have thought of.

[name_f]Gracie[/name_f] is definitely too much of a stretch for [name_f]Hannah[/name_f], but I think [name_f]Anya[/name_f] may work as a family nickname. [name_f]Anya[/name_f] doesn’t feel particularly natural or intuitive as a formal nickname, especially since it’s the same syllable count as [name_f]Hannah[/name_f]. Maybe [name_f]Nan[/name_f] or [name_f]Annie[/name_f]?

Thanks! I was just considering [name_f]Gracie[/name_f] as a nickname as [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] means [name_f]Grace[/name_f]. Like [name_f]Susannah[/name_f] meaning [name_f]Lily[/name_f] and I know people use [name_f]Lily[/name_f] as a nickname there.
